I will show you how to add multiple transparency gradients to an image in Photoshop CS6. This is more of just a quick simple tip than an actual tutorial and the process should be the same or very similar in other versions of Photoshop. Although we are not actually applying multiple gradient masks we are able to add multiple gradients. Often one gradient in one direction doesn’t acheive the effect we are looking for.

I know I myself tried searching for this recently for a project I was undertaking but couldn’t find much to help out so after much research here is the best way to go about doing it. Continue reading

This is a rather unusual question I’ve been asked. Can the crop tool in Photoshop CS6 crop a circle?

Photoshop CS6 batch processing multiple images ready for the web

In this tutorial we will be showing you how to use batch processing to re-size an entire folder full of images you want to prepare for deployment on your web page. Rather than editing each photo individually, with one simple action we will change them all to 72ppi and re-size them all to suit your website. We all know we don’t want great big picture consuming a few meg of bandwidth each being re-sized by the browser. This is very bandwidth heavy so normally we would use Photoshop or Fireworks to re-size them etc. but when you are processing dozens or even hundreds at a time this can be quite tedious. This is where batch processing comes in. For this exercise I will be using Photoshop CS6 but most versions have this capability and are all pretty simple if not exactly the same.

This process has been testing and works also on Adobe Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5 as well as CS6. The process remains unchanged across all these versions of Photoshop.
