Clone Stamp Much?

Recently, I was asked to present a webinar via Adobe Connect to the Photoshop and Lightroom Facebook group (managed by Andrew Kavanaugh). Since I’ve been tinkering with the Clone Stamp tool (see this post), I decided it was time to bust out a new technique with it, one that replicates a style I’ve seen here and there for a few years but had never previously attempted. The overall effect fascinates me, and I plan to keep exploring the look and approach. Hit ‘more’ to get a link to the webinar which demonstrates the technique and see a larger version of my first attempt with this style.

DVD in the works!

I just wrapped preliminary recording for a new DVD with my publisher, Peachpit. This one is aimed at blending modes and adjustment layers for photographers, and you get to see me forget… um… demonstrate my favorite techniques right on your screen! Well, more precisely, you get to watch my Photoshop desktop and listen to me describe what’s going on while I work.

Using Wacom’s Art Brush

I recently recorded a short video using Wacom‘s Art Brush with my Intuos Pro. This one takes you through the initial effect and finishes with some painting that takes advantage of brush rotation in Photoshop CC.
