What You’ll Be Creating Children frequently imagine mirrors to be something mysterious. “What if that isn’t really my reflection, but another person who looks just like me!?” It’s a fun and fascinating idea, that the reflected surface is really a window into an alternate existence.

What You’ll Be Creating A child’s imagination is a precious thing of wonder. I believe it should be nurtured and encouraged whenever possible. One of the most common forms children use to express their imagination is drawing their fantasies. What better way to encourage it than by placing them within their very own imaginary world! This project is intended to be a collaboration between a parent and child. Start by working together to plan it out.

In an ideal world, we would have beautiful, correctly exposed RAW images to work with all the time. What we have in reality, for a variety of reasons, is often an incorrectly exposed JPEG. In this tutorial you’ll learn how to bring some lost detail back into an under-exposed JPEG image using Adobe Photoshop. The Challenge of JPEG Images There are many situations where you might have to work with a less-than-ideal JPEG image. I advise always shooting in RAW when you can but sometimes that isn’t

But once you nail down the fundamental tools it becomes a lot easier to envision how you might create certain effects in future work. One of the confusing ideas that often trips new users is the difference between a layer mask and a clipping mask. They behave similarly but should be used for different purposes. This guide will cover the basics of both layer masks & clipping masks while demonstrating how you might use them in real-world projects. Both should be useful at different times and if you want to master Photoshop then you’ll need to understand these crucial differences.
