Before starting using Photoshop we need to have a basic understanding of how digital images work. There are some important terms and concepts, which will help us to enhance and adjust our images correctly and to make professional decisions with our Photoshop projects.
We are going to use several devices when we work with digital images like digital cameras, scanners, monitors, printers etc and we need to know how to use them properly.

I was presenting this e-seminar from the Adobe office near London about merging images together. I show exciting examples for using Auto-Align, Auto-Blend, HDR toning, HDR Pro and some other useful new features of Photoshop CS5 to create amazing panoramic photographs, dramatic montages and special effects. The presentation is 45 minutes long and it is the unedited recorded version of the live seminar.

In this tutorial you can learn how to quickly create a heart shape logo in Illustrator CS5 using the Pen tool, Smooth tool, Reflect tool, Shape Builder tool and Type tool. You can also learn how to save Symbols in Illustrator to reuse them later or to make changes to them.

In this tutorial you can learn to create realistic blood. Beware, it will be a little bit gory! Don’t show it your kids and your grandma! I’m using a photograph and I draw the dripping blood on the picture trying to capture the volume and realistic look. I don’t use any special brushes or plug-ins (as usual) so you only need to find a photo to be able to follow this tutorial.
Please try not to start with your girlfriends photograph or the family portrait 🙂
