Photoshop: How to Create Graphic Portraits from Photos

Photoshop: How to Create Graphic Portraits from Photos


Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV. I’m going to show you how to create stunning,
graphic portraits from photos. Before we begin, make sure you click the small
“Subscribe” button at the lower, right corner to let you know as soon as I upload new Photoshop
tutorials! Open a photo of a face that you’d like to
use for this project. I downloaded this one from Shutterstock. To ensure that your results will look similar
to mine, check your image’s size and resolution by pressing Alt + Ctrl + I on Windows or Option + Cmd + I on a Mac or by going to Image and Image Size. Make it approximately this size and its resolution:
150 pixels per inch. The first step is to separate our subject from its background by making a selection around our subject. There are many ways to do this and I covered
them all in my prior tutorials. I generally use the Quick Selection Tool,
but since the background in this example is a solid color, I’ll use the Magic Wand Tool. If you’re using this tool, as well, make sure
“Contiguous” is checked. This ensures that the inside of your subject
will not be selected. If you need to add a selection to another
area of the background, click this “Add to” icon, which adds selections as you click on your image. I’ll click the background to make the selection. To check your selection, press “Q” on your
keyboard to see it as a quick mask. Press “Q” again to revert it back into a selection. Invert the selection by pressing Ctrl + Shift
+ I on Windows or Cmd + Shift + I on a Mac. To refine the edge of your selection, go to
Select. If you’re using a version earlier than CC
2015.5, click “Refine Edge. If you’re using CC 2015.5 or later, click
“Select and Mask”. If you prefer to use Refine Edge instead of
Select and Mask, Shift-click “Select and Mask”. I did in-depth tutorials on both filters,
so if you’d like to watch them, I includes their links in my video’s description. I’ll click the “Overlay” view and check “Smart Radius”, which tells Photoshop to detect hard and soft edges. I’ll drag the Radius to 5 and bush over the
edge of the hair. Check, “Decontaminate Colors”, which minimizes
the background color from leaching into the edges of our subject. Output it to a “New Layer with Layer Mask” and click “OK’. We’ll make a new layer below the active layer
by Ctrl-clicking or Cmd-clicking the New Layer icon. We’ll fill the empty layer with white, but
first, check your foreground and background colors. If they’re not black and white respectively,
press “D” on your keyboard. Since white is your background color, press
Ctrl or Cmd + Delete. We’ll convert our visible image into a Smart
Object, so we can modify it non-destructively. To do this, Shift click the top layer to make
it active, as well, and click the icon at the upper, right corner. Click, “Convert to Smart Object”. Go to Filter, Blur and Gaussian Blur. For now, blur it 6 pixels. Go to Image, Adjustments and Threshold. I’ll keep its default Level at 128, however,
you can adjust your portrait’s density by sliding the level to the right or left. You can also adjust it by changing the amount of blur. Double-click Gaussian Blur. If you see this message, it’s just letting
us know that we won’t see the Threshold effect until we’re done with Gaussian Blur. I’ll increase the Blur Radius to 10 and click
OK or press Enter or Return. As you can see, my image filled in more and
became denser. I’ll undo the last step by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + z. Conversely, it we were to decrease the blur
radius, our image would fill in less. I’ll revert it back to the original blur of
6 pixels and the Threshold of 128 levels. As before, convert your image into a Smart Object. Next, we’ll create a gradient background. Click the New Layer icon to make a new layer. Fill it with any color for now, since we’ll
be replacing it with a gradient overlay. I’ll fill it with my foreground color, which is black. Double-click the layer to open its Layer Style window. Click “Gradient Overlay”. The Blend Mode is Normal and the Opacity is 100%. Make sure “Reverse” is unchecked and make
the Style: “Radial”. The Angle is 90 degrees and the Scale is 150%.Click
the gradient bar to open the Gradient Editor. Click the “Black, White” box and the lower,
left Stop. Click the box and pick a light color for the
center of your gradient. Since I already know the color I want, I’ll
type it into the hexadecimal field: D3F3FF. Then, click OK. Click the lower, right Stop and the box. Pick a darker color for the outer areas of
your gradient. I’ll type in: 002871. Once you pick your colors, click OK on the
Color Picker and the Gradient Editor to close them. We can reposition the gradient by dragging it. I’ll drag it up a wee bit from the center. Convert it into a Smart Object. Make a new layer and temporarily hide the gradient. Open your Channels panel. If you don’t see it, go to Window and Channels. Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the RGB thumbnail
to make a selection of channel’s shape. Invert the selection by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + Shift + I. Open back the Layers panel and fill the selection
with black by pressing Alt or Option + Delete. Deselect it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + D. Make
the Gradient visible again and double-click the top layer to open its Layer Style window. Click “Color Overlay” and the box. In the hexadecimal field, type in 31, three
times to give us a dark grey color. Click OK. Click “Inner Shadow”. The color is black, the Blend Mode is Multiply
and the Opacity is 50%. The Angle is 90 degrees, the Distance is 12
pixels and the Size is 8 pixels. Convert it into a Smart Object and go to Filter
and Filter Gallery. Open the Texture folder and click “Texturizer”. The “Texture” is “Canvas”, the Scaling is 200%, the “Relief” is 3 and the “Light” is from the “Top”. Once again, Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the face
to make a selection of it. We’re going to create an inverted layer mask
of the selection next to the gradient. Make the gradient active. Alt-click or Option-click the Layer Mask icon. Click the “fx” icon and click “Bevel and Emboss”. The Style is “Inner Bevel” and the Technique
is “Chisel Soft”. The Depth is 50%, the Direction is “Up” and
the Size is 5 pixels. The Angle is 90 degrees and the Altitude is
50 degrees. The Highlight blend mode is “Linear Dodge”
and its opacity is 25%. The Shadow blend mode doesn’t matter, since
its opacity is 0%. Next, we’ll add a starburst pattern behind our subject. Make a new layer. Open your Polygon Tool and choose “Pixels”. If you’re using Photoshop version CS5 or earlier,
the Pixel icon is here. Go to View and make sure “Rulers” and “Snap”
are both checked. If they’re not, just click on them to make them active. Go to the ruler at the top and drag down a
guideline to the center. It’ll snap in place because we have Snap checked. If you don’t see the guideline, press Ctrl
or Cmd + H. Go to the ruler on the left and drag across a guideline to the center, as well. Give it 99 sides and click the gear icon. You can ignore the Path options, since we chose “pixels”. Check “Star” and indent the sides by 80%. Go to the center of the guidelines and drag out your tool until the shape goes beyond the corners. Then, release. Reduce the Fill to 0%, which makes the layer
invisible, but it’ll retain the visibility of any effects we add to it. Double-click the star to open its Layer Style window. Click “Bevel and Emboss”. The Style is Inner Bevel, the Technique is
“Chisel Soft” and the Depth is 50%. The Direction is “Down” and the Size is 2
pixels. The Angle is 90 degrees and the Altitude is
50 degrees. Make the Highlight opacity anywhere from 50
to 70% and the Shadow opacity: 100%. We can remove the guidelines now by going
to View and “Clear Guides”. Next, we’ll remove the star pattern inside the face. Click the Layer Mask icon to make a layer
mask next to the star layer. As soon as you made the layer mask, your foreground
and background colors inverted. Invert it back by clicking this icon or by
pressing “x” on your keyboard. Open your Pencil Tool and Pencil Picker. We’ll adjust the size in a moment. Make its Hardness and Opacity both 100%. Then, press Enter or Return. To make your brush bigger or smaller, press
the right or left bracket key on your keyboard. Brush over areas inside of the face to remove
the star pattern. Lastly, we’ll crop off the bevel along the
top edge of our document by first making a composite snapshot of our visible image. To do this, make the top layer active and
make a new layer above it. To make the composite snapshot, press Alt
+ Ctrl + Shift + E on Windows or Option + Cmd + Shift + E on a Mac. Open your Transform Tool by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + T. At the top, next to the Transform’s width and height, make sure the chain-link icon is active. This links them together, so whatever we type
into one will be applied to the other, as well. Type in 102%, which should be enough to crop
off the bevel at the top. Then, press Enter or Return, twice. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV. Thanks for watching!

4 Things you NEED to know about LOGO🖌- TIPS for Logo Design🔎- REMEMBER this while designing Logo!!


HELLO everyone Moiz from FoxSquare today we are discussing some tips on how to design a LOGO in today’s video we were talking about four things that I think that you should remember when designing When it comes to logo designing there are a lot of “professionals” doing a lot of things very differently to make awful logos. there are some things to consider when you’re thinking about the logo of your company but non-designers never realized that ended think of company logo of something completely different that it should be. It is the designers job to to give their clients the best Logo possible. Yes! creating the local according to the Client guidelines but also giving him your expert advice how the logo should be after all client is lookign for your design skills not your PEN TOOL skils. So this video is for both the designers and the demand was looking for a logo and who are designing a logo designers to keep in mind when they’re making the videos also for the clients when they are considering to buy a Logo alright let’s get it for the first thing that you should remember while designing a logo is that it should be VECTOR the most important thing about a logo is that is should be VECTOR should be VECTOR. photoshop is not for designing if you use photoshop for local designing *Beep* photoshop is a rester based program the difference between rester and vector is that rester are made up of pixels and vector is made up of shapes. which means that a vector Logo can be scaled to Infinity for a bill board sign. Or descaled to a small favicon to a small satellite but it will lose its quality it’s fine designer chasing you with the photoshop.. RUN! mmm and in case of you run the second thing that you should Second thing consider while making a Logo is that it should be simple. Hmmm what do i mean by “Simple” designing a logo is the hard Job you have to know all about one company and then you have to represented in one simple shape do not think that’s not to put everything that the company does in the Logo just imagine Google or Apple putting up on the tablets and Phones in their logo. it will look awful whether it’s nice swish or mcdonalds M simplicity is the key. the nextt thing that you should remember was designing the local is that it should be sizable. Hmmm what do I mean by it should be resizeable? should be the sizeable ofcourse its vectors that can be resized no it’s not that simple you should be able to recognize the local even if it’s a small as i can for as huge as a billboard if the logo is too busy and has a lot of trips it would be recognizable when you scale it down to keep this in mind while designing a Last but not the least. fourth thing that you should remember when designing a little is that it should look good in black and white. Aswell as colors you’re not thinking you just use your logo only on company door. Do you? that’s the case wrap up your business and go home. you representing your company use the local everything business card and letter heads etc. Everywhere! it’s important that the logo is recognisable when its in black and white as well as colours.

Photoshop Tutorial: How to Create a Logo that includes Your Own Face

Photoshop Tutorial: How to Create a Logo that includes Your Own Face


Hi. This is Marty from Blue Lightning TV. I’m going to show you how to transform a face
into simple, black and white art and create a design to place the art into. Create a new document by going to File and New. This is the New Layer window in CC 2017. Whatever version you’re using, in the Width
and Height fields, type in 1250 pixels each and the for Resolution, type in 150 pixels per inch. Then, click “Create” or “OK”. Next, we’ll add guide lines that will show
the exact center of our document. If you’re using version CC or later, Go to
“View” and “New Guide Layout”. If you’re using a version earlier than CC,
I’ll show you a work-around in a moment. Type in 2 in the “Number” fields for both
“Columns” and “Rows”. If you’re using a version earlier than CC,
go to View and “New Guide”. Whatever orientation is ticked, type in 50%. Then, go back to View and “New Guide”. This time, tick the other orientation and
again, type in 50%. Click the New Layer icon to make a new layer. Open your Elliptical Marquee Tool and go to
the center of the guide lines. Press and hold Alt or Option + Shift as you
drag out a circular selection approximately this size. Go to Edit and Stroke. Make the Width: 30 pixels, the color is black
and the Location: Inside. Then, click OK or press Enter or Return. Deselect it by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + D. Temporarily
hide the background. Click the “fx” icon and click “Stroke”. Make the Size: 20 pixels and the Position: “Outside”. The color is white. If it isn’t white, just click the color box and pick white. Make the background layer visible again. We’ll make a new layer below the active layer
by Ctrl-clicking or Cmd-clicking the New Layer icon. Open your Rectangular Marquee Tool. To drag out a square selection from the center,
click your mouse or pen and don’t release and press and hold Alt or Option + Shift as you drag your cursor out to the inside edge of your circle. We’ll fill the selection with black and since black is your foreground color, press Alt or Option + Delete. Then, deselect it. Open back your Elliptical Marquee Tool and
drag out a circular selection to the white area between the solid black circle and the black ring. Press the Delete key on your keyboard to delete
the area inside the selection. Then, deselect it. Make the circle layer active. We’ll place our text above it. Open your Horizontal Type Tool and pick a font. I’m using “Glaser Becker Stencil”. If you’d like to use it, I provided its link
in my video’s description or project files below. I’ll make its size approximately 123 points
for now, Sharp and Center Alignment. The color is black. Click on your document and type out your text. To finesse its size and to reposition it,
click your Move Tool and press Ctrl or Cmd + T to open your Transform Tool. Go to a corner and when you see a diagonal,
double-arrow, press and hold, “Shift” as you drag it in or out until your text is flush with both sides of the square shape above it. To slide your text up or down, press the Up
or Down arrow key on your keyboard. Then, press Enter or Return. To slide your entire graphic up, Shift-click
the bottom shape to make all of your graphic layers active and press the Up arrow on your keyboard. We’re going to make a new layer below the bottom shape. Click the bottom shape to make just that layer
active and Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the New Layer icon. Open your Rectangular Marquee Tool again and
go to the center. Click and don’t release as you press and hold
Alt or Option and drag a rectangular selection around your elements approximately this much. Go to Edit and Stroke. Make the Width: 20 pixels, the color black
and the Location: Inside. Then, deselect it. If you want to resize it and/or extend the
top or bottom edge, open your Transform Tool, go to a corner and drag it out or in . I’d
like to extend the bottom edge, so I’ll go to the bottom, middle anchor point of the
Transform and drag it down. Then, I’ll press Enter or Return. We’re ready to begin the steps in creating
your portrait into the design. Go to the top of your Layers panel and make
the top layer active. We’ll place our portrait layer above it. Open a photo of a face that you’d like to
use for this project. I downloaded this one from Shutterstock. The first step is to separate your subject
from its background by making a selection around your subject. There are many ways to do this, but for this
example, I’ll use the Quick Selection Tool. If you’re using this tool as well, drag your
tool over your subject to select it. To remove areas outside your subject, press
and hold Alt or Option as you drag over those areas. To check your selection, press “Q” on your
keyboard to see it as a quick mask. If it looks good to you, press “Q” again to
revert it back into a selection. Click the Layer Mask icon to make a Layer
Mask of the selection. Make a new layer below the active layer and
fill it with white by pressing Ctrl or Cmd + Delete. This fills it with your background color. We’ll convert the 2 layers into one Smart
Object, so we can modify it nondestructively, as well as allowing us to replace our subject
with another face without having to re-do all the effects. Shift-click the top layer to make it active,
as well and click the icon at the upper, right corner of the Layers panel. Click “Convert to Smart Object”. To place the subject into our design, press
“v” to open your Move Tool and drag the subject onto the tab of your design document. Without releasing your mouse or pen, drag
it down onto the image and release. We want to place our subject inside the circle
and hide the areas of our our subject outside the circle. Do to this, Ctrl-click or Cmd-click the ring
to make a selection of its shape. Press “Q” to make it into a Quick Mask. We’ll delete the area of the Quick mask outside the ring. Open your Paint Bucket Tool and click anywhere
outside the ring. Press “Q” again to revert the quick mask back
into a selection. Alt-click or Option-click the Layer Mask icon
to create an inverted layer mask of the selection next to your subject. Click the chain-link between the layer and
the layer mask to unlink them. Doing this, allows us to resize and/or reposition
either of them independently of the other. Make your subject active and open your Transform Tool. Center the face inside the circle and resize
it, so most of the face is showing. Go to Image, Adjustments and Threshold. I’ll keep its default level of 128 and click
OK or press Enter or Return. Go to Filter, Blur and Gaussian Blur. Blur it 4 pixels. Go to Filter and Filter Gallery. Open the Artistic folder and click “Cutout”. Make the number of Levels: 2. I’ll make the “Edge Simplicity”: 5, but feel
free to experiment with this amount. Make the “Edge Fidelity”: 1 and click OK. If you look closely at your portrait, it may
have shapes that are dark grey. To make it completely black, go back to Image,
Adjustments and Threshold. Then, click OK. Lastly, we’ll create a white ring around the portrait. Click the “fx” icon and click “Stroke”. The color is white, the size is 20 pixels
and the Position is “Inside”. This is Marty from Blue lightning TV. Thanks for watching!
