Photoshop: January 2009 Archives

In this tutorial, I'll show you how to use Quick Masks in Photoshop.  You might be wondering why you need to use Quick Masks.  Well I'm glad you asked.  You can use Quick Masks when you want one of your images to have an effect on the edges.  This makes your image look more interesting and more appealing than a normal box, circle or oval shape.  OK, now let's get started.

First, for this tutorial, create a new image by navigating the File pull-down menu and clicking New.

One of the most impressive new capabilities in Photoshop CS4 is direct integration between Vanishing Point and Photoshop's 3D Layers.  Why is this cool?  Because you can turn this still photograph (a higher-res copy, obviously):
