In today’s Adobe Photoshop video tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a popular photo effect that goes by many names, including selective colour photography, spot colour photography, colour isolation photography, partial colour photography, colour splash photography, colour accent photography and many many more! No matter what you want to call it, it’s where a photograph is converted to black and white with a single colour preserved to highlight specific areas.
In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial I’m going to show you how to create a custom typography design. Usually text styles like this would be lettered by hand, but in this tutorial I’ll share some secrets on how you can still create cool looking typography by customising ready-made fonts with clever OpenType features. The tutorial will then continue with some customisation of the type to add shadows, offset accents and highlights to create a bright and colourful text effect.
In today’s video tutorial we’re going to combine the powers of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator to create a contour map effect, you know, the ones with loads of lines that show the topography of the landscape. We’ll use Photoshop’s filters to produce the basic contour map effect, then we’ll bring it into Illustrator to vectorize it, then customise the paths to add various line weights and styles.
In today’s Photoshop video tutorial we’re going to realistically apply a rust texture to a design. This can be done with any kind of image, it could be a single colour logo like I’ll be using in this example today, or even full colour artwork or photographs. The technique makes use of the the Channels in Photoshop to make a selection of a texture, which is then used to erase the artwork wherever there’s rust. Because we’re using the Channels rather than a manual selection, every single tiny detail is captured, which produces an ultra realistic result.
In this week’s video I’m going to run through a bunch of handy tips to help you develop a faster workflow. A lot of us use Adobe Photoshop on a daily basis, but no matter how much of a veteran you are, you can always learn new little tips that will make you think “How did I not know this before!”.
In today’s Adobe Illustrator tutorial we’re going to build a vintage logo design. Mine is based on inspiration from my recent Canada road trip, but you’ve probably seen these kinds of vintage style badges and emblems scattered across inspiration galleries.
We’ll use some ready made graphics from my free Wilderness Logo Survival Kit, which will allow me to focus mostly on the typographic aspect in this tutorial, where we’ll use a mix of type based tools in Adobe Illustrator to construct the layout.
