New Refine Edge tutorial for Photoshop

Chris Lane / Training, Tutorial, vidcast / / 3 Comments

Refine Edge buttonThe newest tutorial on the Refine Edge function for Photoshop CS3 is now available.

The refine edge function is the best way to get the best selection you want. Use it especially in conjunction with the magic wand and quick selection tools.

If you missed it, don’t forget to watch the other tutorials available here.

I went with a bit wider of a video format this time so that I didn’t have any wasted space when I post it on YouTube. Not sure if this is a great way to go, since the videos are hosted on here, but I didn’t want to make two different versions either. Let me know what you think. Are they too short, or do you prefer the widescreen format? If I happened to miss anything, let me know in the comments below.

Prisoner – the process

Prisoner Process
Now that the Prisoner graphic novel is finished on here, I would like to fill you in on the process I used to create the comic’s illustrations. And again, if you haven’t visited the author, Dean’s website yet, you really should. Now, I should say, this process is by no means the ‘correct’ way and certainly isn’t the traditional way, it is just the way that I happened to go through it. I very likely would change some things in the future, if I happen to do any more comics. And by the way, if you enjoyed this comic and would like to see more (or really hated and never want me to do it again, goshdarndit!), let me know through the comments at the bottom of this post, or send me a message. If you want to skip past all the wordiness, here is the link to the video demonstrating my process.

Video tutorial update

Chris Lane / Improvements!, Tutorial / / 0 Comments

Just a quick note to mention that I have replaced the Marquee tutorial video. I am guessing you weren’t happy with the video quality on that one, because I certainly wasn’t. I am getting the capture/render process down pretty good now, though. I was able to not only get superb quality, but I also cut the file size in half! So, if you missed or skipped that one. You can see the tutorial here.
