Retouching Actions for Photoshop – Smooth Skins 2

Improving upon an already outstanding set of Photoshop actions is a task that requires developers to somehow outdo themselves for their customers; however, when they respond to their end users, the results lead them to smooth sailing in the often rough seas of the creative professional products. Once again, Digital Heavens cruises past the competition with their effortless set of skin-retouching action sets that take users on a gorgeous ride.

DXO Viewpoint 2

DXO Viewpoint 2

ViewPoint 2 uses the company’s lens database to correct an image. It installs as a standalone app or an Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, or Aperture plug-in. Lens distortion, which is the first panel in the sidebar, is corrected automatically, based on DxO’s database. The Perspective tool corrects vertical, horizontal, 4-point, and 8-point distortions. You can find the first three in other apps, as well (Capture One Pro 7, for example, has an identical perspective-correction tool); however, the 8-point correction feature in ViewPoint 2 is unique and offers dramatic improvements in perspective correction. The 8-point perspective correction allows you to place the ... Read More »

Emulsion Emulator for Photoshop : Exposure 5

Emulsion Emulator for Photoshop : Exposure 5

This incredible hybrid of past, present, and futuristic analog film effects has come a long way from its first release. Most notably, insofar as new features are concerned, Alien Skin has given its vintage-retro-loving plug-in a new, darker user interface and preset browser. Navigating is faster, and performance improvement isn’t solely dependent on your hardware, making this a noticeable upgrade for fans of previous versions. While Exposure was always great at reproducing favorite film emulsions and effects, version 5 provides more control and precision to create a richer, more dynamic look. Another noticeable improvement is in the appearance of the ... Read More »

New and Hidden Font Features in Adobe Creative Cloud

With all the new features added to the Creative Cloud versions of Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator, it’s easy to miss some that are the most useful. Each time Adobe revises these applications, they improve the way you interact with fonts. Strangely, different improvements are given to each application. Preview Selections (PS, ID & IL) All three apps let you scroll through your font list to see a live preview applied to selected text. It works like this: Select some text in your document. Click on the name of the font in the Character panel, Options Bar, or Control Panel. Press ... Read More »
