10 things you could be using Photoshop for but probably aren't.

Written by Shaun Pearce

Most people don't use Photoshop to its fullest capabilities. Here are just ten uses to which you could put this highly versatile software. 1. Restoring Old Photographs. Have a look through that old family photo album -repparttar really old one from up in Grandma's attic. Inside there are probably a few photos from way back when that haven't stoodrepparttar 138802 test of time so well. They've got cracks and tears that really spoil their appearance. Scan them into Photoshop, and then set to work withrepparttar 138803 Clone Stamp, Healing Brush, and Patch tools. The Healing Brush in particular is a great tool for this purpose as it samples data from one part ofrepparttar 138804 picture and blends it in with what's already there.

2. Correcting Mistakes. We've all done it: Had an attack of "finger overrepparttar 138805 lens syndrome," or got too close withrepparttar 138806 flash, so our subjects suffer from "red eye" and look like extras from a horror movie. Userepparttar 138807 crop tool to salvage something usable from your obscured photo, andrepparttar 138808 enlarge wizard to blow it up to a reasonable size. For "red eye" and "pet eye," userepparttar 138809 eyedropper tool to sample color from aroundrepparttar 138810 iris, and a brush to paint awayrepparttar 138811 red.

3. Adding Graphics to Videos. It's a little known fact, but many domestic and professional nonlinear editing systems (especiallyrepparttar 138812 Mac based ones like Avid or Final Cut) enable you to import Photoshop .psd files directly intorepparttar 138813 timeline. 4. Creating Text Effects for Print and Web. There's an almost unlimited amount of things you can do with text in Photoshop. Userepparttar 138814 Type Mask Tools to create picture filled text, then uploadrepparttar 138815 results to your web page - or print them out for a one of a kind T-shirt. 5. Turning a Photo Into a Work of Art. Everyone likes to have nice things to look at. Most of us like to have pictures onrepparttar 138816 wall, and something that looks different from what other people have on their walls is a definite plus. Unless you're blessed with artistic talent, though, this can be very expensive - until now. Use one of Photoshop's many Artistic or Brush Stroke filters to turn your photos into "new masters," then print them out on quality art paper.
