What are the PS advanced tools? Tutorial on using advanced Photoshop tools

What are advanced tools?

  photoshopAdvanced tools are a general term, mainly referring to “layer style, RGBpassageway. It has the functions of action, ALPHA channel, transformation selection, etcFilterAnd other PS tools, which can assist and increasepictureFor some complex renderings, the use of advanced tools is more important.

1、 Layer style – making of metal frame.

1. In fact, there are many software with their own frames, and the operation is very simple, but those are always made by others, which is not meaningful.

Create a new file according to your needs (the shortcut key is CTRL+N) with RGB color and white background; Create a new blank layer (do not make it on the background layer), use the rectangle tool to drag out a rectangular area, and then CTRL+Enter to convert it into a selection area; Set the foreground color to black, select the Gradient Tool, and fill the black to white gradient from top to bottom. Execute the menu – select – adjust – zoom, set the appropriate value (the author sets it to 10), and then fill the black to white gradient from bottom to top.

2. Then select the graph with the second gradient from bottom to top, execute the execution menu – select – adjust – zoom 10 pixels again, and then CTRL+X delete it. Double click layer 1 to open the layer style dialog box. Set the projection to 10, other defaults; Bevels and reliefs make the picture frame bulge, and other settings remain unchanged to obtain a three-dimensional effect. Then open a favorite picture and press CTRL+T to adjust it to the frame size, then press Enter to confirm.

2、 ALPHA channel – radiation effect.

Channel application is very important. This example is used to edit in the channel, get the selected area, and then edit in the RGB channel

1. Create a new file with random size. Set the foreground and background colors to white and black respectively; Click the channel panel and the button in the lowest direction to create a new ALPHA channel. At this time, the screen becomes black; Then execute menu – filter – cloud, and then execute twist – polar coordinate – plane coordinate to polar coordinate to generate vortex effect; In order to add vortex effect, add a radial blur, the value is 30; Then CTRL+T adjusts the image size so that the vortex fills the entire canvas; Then perform the selection – feather 3 pixels. As shown in Figure 3.

2. Back to the integrated channel, set the foreground color to R0 G54 B255, and then edit – fill the foreground color; Then go back to the channel, click ALPHA channel, execute menu – select – load selection area, click OK, irregular dotted lines will appear on the screen, and then go back to the layer, click the blue layer just filled, press DELETE, delete, and a blue vortex will be obtained; Then go back to the channel panel, create a new channel ALPHA2, menu – filter – noise – add noise, 90% monochromatic Gaussian distribution; Execute menu – Filter – Radial Blur, select Zoom, Quantity 30, and adjust its brightness; Pull out a perfect circle in the middle of the radiation particles with the prototype tool, first feather 40 pixels, and then fill in white;

3. Return to the layer panel, execute the selection – load selection, in the pop-up dialog box, select ALPHA2, and then press CTRL+X to delete to get the radial nebula effect, and then cooperate with the starsBrushAnd we can make a map of cosmic radiation nebula.

3、 RGB Channel — Flying Color

In RGB channel, it is allowed to process each layer separately, so that each color can be edited separately freely, so that more color effects can be obtained.

1. New file, RGB mode, white background; Set the foreground color to black, adjust the Gradient to black to transparent, select the Gradient Mode to Radial Gradient (circular gradient), and then brush several more colors on the canvas at any size; On the access panel, select the red channel, close other channels, and execute the menu – Filter – Twist – Polar Coordinate – Polar Coordinate to Plane Coordinate; Then open the green channel and execute the menu – Filter – Twist – Shear.

2. Select the blue channel, execute Filter Twist Rotate Twist, and the value is 200. Then open all channels and return to the layer panel to get a colorful effect.

4、 Application of Photoshop’s own motion

Using Photoshop’s own actions, you can easily batch process pictures, and also make netizen photo albumscourseI have already explained it in, so I won’t repeat it here

Conclusion: This tutorial mainly focuses on the application of advanced tools such as channels, including filters in previous issues. Therefore, PS is a flexible tool, and I hope you can apply it comprehensively. Next time, I will bring you someSpecial effectsHow to make characters.
