1 Adobe Photoshop CS5 – Illustrated Unit G: Creating Special Effects

2 Objectives Use the Color blending mode Use the Multiply blending mode Add noise with the Overlay blending mode Sharpen with the High Pass filter Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated 2

3 Objectives Apply the Lens Flare filter with Screen mode Apply the Motion Blur filter Apply non-destructive filters Distort images Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

4 Creating Special Effects Photoshop learning and practicing   Performed by doing one thing at a time Working in Photoshop   Performed on a full-scale project Learning to look at the “big” picture   Shift from one thing to an entire project Creative artistic sense and decisions   Necessary along the Photoshop tools Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

5 Using the Color Blending Mode Blending modes   Mathematical algorithms Define how pixels affect pixels beneath them Create special effects   Applied throughout many Photoshop features   Prominent on the Layers panel   Prominent in options with specific tools Brush tool Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

6 Using the Color Blending Mode Base color   Color of the original pixel Blend color   Color being applied Result color   Color produced by blending base and blend colors Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

7 Using the Color Blending Mode Color blending mode   Useful for colorizing monochromatic images   Applies blend pixel hue to the base pixel Automatically affects base pixel saturation Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

8 Using the Color Blending Mode Color blending mode   No affect on base pixels brightness value   Affects hue and saturation Adjustments panel Hue/Saturation colorize option   Necessary to colorize a black-and-white image Sliders have no affect on a pixel with saturation value of “0” Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

9 Using the Color Blending Mode Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated Solid color blended over the image Painting in a layer set to Color mode Colorized image

10 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES True/False. The blend color is the color of the original pixel. (Answer: False) True/False. The result color is the color produced by combining the first two colors using the blending mode. (Answer: True) Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

11 Using the Multiply Blending Mode Multiply mode   Most common blending mode   Makes blend pixels transparent   Base art seen through that color   Used when creating shadows and drop shadows   Shadows in nature: always transparent Two important characteristics   Multiplying black: always black   Multiplying white: becomes invisible Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

12 Using the Multiply Blending Mode Layers panel blending modes   Grouped in six sections Intentional and specific Blending modes grouped on similarities Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

13 Using the Multiply Blending Mode Color Burn and Linear Burn   Two effective blending modes   Similar to the Multiple blending mode   Produce subtly different effects   Color Burn increases contrast   Linear Burn Creates multiply effect by decreasing brightness Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

14 Using the Multiply Blending Mode Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated Multiplying a solid color Understanding the Multiply blending mode

15 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES When you multiply black, what is the result? (Answer: It is always black.) When you multiply white, what is the result? (Answer: White always becomes invisible.) Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

16 Adding Noise with the Overlay Blending Mode Noise   Blanket of high-contrast pixels Produces grainy effect over an image Visible noise: termed “grain”   Low-quality images online   Images downloaded to a cell phone Adding noise to “finish” a design   Adds heightened sense of sharpness and focus Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

17 Adding Noise with the Overlay Blending Mode Noise   Especially effective with multiple images used in a montage Challenge in a montage   Making it appear to be one piece of artwork   Layer of noise Adds a consistent layer across the artwork making it appear as one image Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

18 Adding Noise with the Overlay Blending Mode Methods to add noise   Create from existing pixels   Add to an image using the overlay technique Not editable Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

19 Adding Noise with the Overlay Blending Mode Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated Viewing results of the Noise filter Understanding the Overlay blending mode

20 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES What is noise? (Answer: Noise is a term used to describe a blanket of high-contrast pixels that produce a grainy effect over an image.) Is Noise a good thing? Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

21 Sharpening with the High Pass Filter Sharpness: corresponds to edges Edges: image areas where highly contrasting pixels meet High Pass filter   Effective at finding and isolating edges   Uses mathematical algorithm Identifies where pixels of high contrast abut   Fills layer with solid gray Except in the edge areas to isolate the edges Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

22 Sharpening with the High Pass Filter Edges   Mostly involved in image blurring and sharpening Blurring an edge   Reduces contrast where edge pixels meet Sharpening an edge   Increases contrast Provide heightened image focus Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

23 Sharpening with the High Pass Filter Overlay/High Pass technique   Overlays an image on top of itself Only at the edges   Filter fills the layer with 50% gray Transparent when overlayed Edge areas: those not filled with gray Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

24 Sharpening with the High Pass Filter Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated Viewing the sharpened image Applying the High Pass filter

25 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES True/False. Edges are any areas in an image where highly contrasting pixels meet. (Answer: True) What does the High Pass filter do? (Answer: High Pass is a filter that is very effective at finding and isolating edges. It finds edges using a mathematical algorithm to identify where in the image pixels of high contrast abut. It then fills the layer with solid gray everywhere except in the edge areas.) Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

26 Applying the Lens Flare Filter with Screen Mode Lens flare   Bright spot often captured in the glass of a camera lens Lens Flare filter   Useful for adding glints or bight spots   Must be applied to existing pixels Can not be created in an empty layer Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

27 Applying the Lens Flare Filter with Screen Mode Making lens flare a part of the artwork   Fill a layer with black and apply Lens Flare filter   Use Screen blending mode to make black areas transparent, leaving just the flare Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

28 Applying the Lens Flare Filter with Screen Mode Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated The final effect Scaling down the size of the flare Positioning the screened lens flare Positioning the screened lens flare

29 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES True/False. The Screen blending mode functions as the exact opposite of the Multiply blending mode. (Answer: True) Discuss the difference between Screen blending mode and Multiply blending mode. Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

30 Applying the Motion Blur Filter Motion Blur filter dialog box   Used for blurring pixels Allows specification of a distance and an angle   Results in a blur used to create the appearance of motion For both artwork and text Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

31 Applying the Motion Blur Filter Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated Viewing two motion blurs applied Viewing one motion blur applied

32 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES True/False. Photoshop offers only one blur filter. (Answer: False) Discuss the differences between Figures G-14 and G-15. Which figure conveys motion the best? Why? Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

33 Applying Non-Destructive Filters Non-destructive adjustments   Not applied directly to the artwork   Adjustment exists on a separate layer Can be shown, hidden, edited, deleted   Original artwork not altered Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

34 Applying Non-Destructive Filters Creating non-destructive filter layers   Allows creation of filters on a layer Can be shown, hidden, edited, and deleted   Called “smart filters” Comes with a layer mask Can be altered using an opacity adjustment or a blending mode Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

35 Applying Non-Destructive Filters Non-destructive filters   Created with a mask: filter mask Functions like a layer mask   Applying multiple filters One mask remains available hiding or showing all of the applied filters Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

36 Applying Non-Destructive Filters Smart filters can be removed from layered artwork at any time   Temporarily Hide the filter   Permanently Drag it to the Delete layer button on the Layers panel Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

37 Applying Non-Destructive Filters Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated Viewing the filter applied with 80% opacity The Grain filter as a layer on the Layers panel

38 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES What is non-destructive editing? (Answer: The adjustment is not applied directly to the artwork. Instead, the adjustment exists on a separate layer that can be shown, hidden, edited, or even deleted.) True/False. Smart filters can be removed from layered artwork at any time. (Answer: True) Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

39 Distorting Images Distorted images used in artistic and practical effects   Creating a sense of three-dimensional artwork Distort command   Another transformation type Like scaling or rotating Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

40 Distorting Images Skew, Perspective (Warp) commands   Provide additional transformation Skew   Transforms art as though positioned on an angle Perspective   Transforms art with a forced perspective Toward an unspecified vanishing point Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

41 Distorting Images Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated Distorting the artwork by moving the handles Viewing the final distorted artwork

42 CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES True/False. The Distort feature allows you to move the four handles of the bounding box independently of one another. (Answer: True) Refer to Figures G-18 and G-19. Discuss what has been distorted in the artwork. Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

43 Summary Learning to look at the “big” picture   Shift to looking at an entire project Artistic sense and decisions for creating effects required with tools tools Blending modes   Applied with many Photoshop features   Prominent on the Layers panel   Prominent options with specific tools Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated

44 Summary Noise: especially effective when applied with multiple images Color Burn and Linear Burn: two effective blending modes Non-destructive filters   Created with a filter mask   Functions like a layer mask Images distortion provides artistic and practical effects: sense of 3-D Adobe Photoshop CS5 - Illustrated
