Morphing effect using Adobe Photoshop

  • Open Adobe Photoshop.
  • Go to File –> Open the downloaded image from where you have save the images previously.
  • Now we will start off chopping the dog's head. Here i am using lasso tool (better if you use Magnetic lasso tool) to crop the dog's head.
  • Now after you create the selection you have to right click inside the path and select make selection, then copy and paste it on the bird image.
  • After pasting on the bird layer you will have to right click on the dog's head layer on the layers palette and convert it to smart object. Then hit CTRL+T and match it to the bird's head.
  • This is how we convert the elephant head to smart object, it greatly helps in maintaining the quality after cropping.
  • Now that we have transformed the dog’s head on top of our bird we will create a new adjustment layer and control the hue and saturation for the dog’s head to match it to the bird. So yeah hold alt and click the “create new fill and adjustment layer” select the hue and saturation and enter the settings shown below.
  • Create a new layer and name it skin, in this layer we are going to make the scales of the bird on the dog’s head. For doing this we will quickly grab the clone stamp tool and select sample all layers and then hold alt on the bird’s scales and using a soft brush put it on the elephants head. Make sure you are on the skin layer which you created now!
  • Here is the final result.

How to Reduce the Images size in Adobe Photoshop

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,,
This is probably the most basic of tasks you can do with image editing software. Digital cameras often save images in high quality, and a standard 1024 x 768 high-quality image can be about 1.5 - 2 MB large, depending on the image details. E-mailing 10 such images means an attachment size of over 10MB. Unless you (and the recipient of the e-mail) have a broadband or a very reliable dial-up connection, this can be a pain. Besides, if you are uploading images onto an image-sharing Web site such as or, you don’t really need very high quality images—ditto if you’re embedding images into a PowerPoint presentation. In all these cases, you might want to compress your images (thus also reducing quality) making for smaller file sizes.

Once your image is open in the File menu, click on Save As. Choose the directory you want to
save it in, and the extension it will have. By default, the “save as” type will be the same as that of the original image if you haven’t made changes to it such as adding layers or masks. Select the JPEG type if it’s not already selected by default, and click Save. Now a JPEG options box will pop up, giving you a quality vs. file size setting. You can move the slider to the left (smaller file size) to choose a lower quality. Alternatively, you can enter a numeric value between 1 and 12. The file size corresponding to any particular setting is displayed at the bottom of the box.

The Format Options allows you three choices—Baseline (standard), Baseline (optimized) and Progressive. Baseline Optimized can reduce file sizes better than Standard, but certain image reading software and browsers were not compatible with this—hence the option. However, for your purposes of sharing images today, you can safely choose Baseline Optimized. Now, we come to Progressive JPEG: have you observed certain images on the Web appearing initially blurred and then gradually getting clearer in three to five passes? The details appear progressively— hence the name. If you are not saving the image for the Web, you can ignore this option.
Adobe Photoshop CS6 image file reduce

The extent to which you can reduce the file size of your images is something you have to decide based on the quality that’s acceptable to you for your purposes. The distortion that the quality loss.The JPEG saving options in Photoshop will produce also depends on the image itself. For example, an image that is already pixelated will look very bad even if its file size is reduced by a small amount, while a photo from a good digital camera can be reduced to up to 60% of its original file size with no or hardly any visible loss in quality. However, assuming a similar quality of the original images, a rule of thumb is that those that have high detail—that is, considerable variation of colors across the image—must not be reduced much (say, less than 80%), while images that have uniform spreading of a single colour can be reduced to about 40% or lesser of their original size.

Getting Around Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,
Adobe Photoshop’s interface is quite easy to use, and has become a model that nearly all image-editing programs follow—so even if you do switch to a different program, you aren’t going to be lost. The interface is organized into the top toolbar (called the Option Bar), and the many palettes at the sides. You can show or hide any of these palettes in the Window Menu.

The Tools Palette

The Tools Palette (sometimes also called the ‘Toolbox’) is where all the Photoshop magic happens. Select a tool from here to perform the corresponding action on your image. Some tools have a black arrow at the bottom right corner—this means there are more tools in that category. Click and hold on the tool to bring up the full list of tools. Additional options for each tool will appear on the toolbar at the top.

What is Adobe Photoshop ??

♠ Rakshith Mlore in ,,


Existence Of Photoshop

John Knoll, who worked for Industrial Lightand Magic (ILM) at the time,envisioned the possibilities of computer-generated special effects, and decided to experiment with them himself, soliciting his brother Thomas help for his purposes. Together, they invested inan Apple Macintosh II—the first one that supported colour—and began building on an application John had started as a hobby : Display. One thing led to another, and as they added more and more features, Display became Photoshop 1.0, which was released in 1990 on a single floppy disk. While it was a big hit from the beginning itself.
The above image is the screenshot of the first Adobe Photoshop Floppy Disk which i got on the internet.

What does Photoshop Do ?

Photoshop fanatics will probably make convincing arguments about how Photoshop is so awesome it can even cure world hunger, but there’s probably still some time for that. What Photoshop is brilliant at is its original purpose—special effects. Using Photoshop, even the blandest image can be given a new lease on life. It doesn’t end there, though. With its extremely powerful image-editing tools, Photoshop can be used to correct eventhe most disastrous flaws in pictures—from red eyes in photographs to undesirable smears of colour. Image Ready, which comes bundled with Photoshop, offers a host of features you can use for Web graphics—creating animated GIFs, mouse roll-overs, and somevery aggressive compression tools that will ensure your images are the smallest possible size without compromising on their quality.
