Photoshop CS5 makes it very easy for you to customize the way that your images look, but there are also some settings that you can change to modify the way that the program looks, too.
The default gray color scheme in Photoshop CS5 is one that I have gotten used to over the years, and have not really given much though to changing. Step 3: Click the drop-down menu to the right of Standard Screen Mode, then click Select custom color.
The next time you open an image in Photoshop CS5, the background screen behind the image canvas will be the color that you just selected. Site all the wallpaper, are collected from Internet, belongs to original author, please do not used for commercial purposes !
In this tutorial, architect and illustrator Andreas A Tjeldflaat takes you through the post-production steps of an architecture rendering in Photoshop. The starting point for all projects such as these is the base photo – having a good one is vital.
Next, I opened the render in Photoshop and created a layer mask of the alpha channel to mask out everything but the building from the RGB layer.
To adjust the lighting of the people, I created a clipping mask layer above each in the Layers panel, and painted with a soft black (shadow) and white (highlight) brush to match the scene lighting.
I add textures of rusty and flaked metal to the surfaces, using the same technique as in Step 5. I wanted to intensify the lighting in the photo to further enhance the geometry of the building.
To let some light come through the leaves in the tree, I created a new layer and filled it with black.
To give the warm orange glow of the morning sun, I created a new layer and selected a soft orange brush with 30% opacity and painted on the left side of the sky, as well as any surfaces facing the sun.
To balance this, I created a new layer and did the same with a blue brush on the surfaces that face away from the sun.

Press X on your keyboard to swap your foreground and background colors so white becomes your foreground color.
We're going to set the colors for our gradient, so click directly on the gradient preview area (circled in red above) to bring up the Gradient Editor.
Click OK to exit out of the Color Picker once again, and click OK to exit out of the Gradient Editor as well. Click directly on the words "Bevel and Emboss" in the layer styles menu along the left of the Layer Style dialog box to switch to the Bevel and Emboss options. Go back up to the Structure options at the top of the Layers styles dialog box and drag the Size slider bar to the right until you've closed up the open spaces inside the letters.
Drag the "Size" slider to the right until you've closed up the open spaces inside the letters. After dragging the "Size" slider to the right, the open spaces inside the letters have been removed.

Next, click inside the checkbox to the left of the word Contour on the left of the Layer Style dialog box, directly below the "Bevel and Emboss" option. One last thing to do here before we exit out of the Layer Style dialog box and switch to the original text layer. With the original text layer selected, click on the "Layer Styles" icon at the bottom of the Layers palette. Click directly on the words Bevel and Emboss in the menu on the left of the Layer Style dialog box to once again enable it and bring up its options. First, in order to apply these settings to the stroke, we need to change the top option, Style to Stroke Emboss. We're going to add some sparkles to our gold text to really make it shine, and we're going to use a brush for that. Photoshop will ask you if you want to replace the current brushes with these new brushes or simply append them to the existing ones. Grab the Eyedropper tool from the Tools palette or press I to quickly select it, and then click on one of the lightest areas in the text to sample that color. With your brush selected and your sampled color ready to go, click in a few random locations around the text to add some sparkles. Once you've added your sparkles and lowered the opacity to your liking, you've completed the gold lettering effect!

One such way that you can do this is by learning to change the Photoshop CS5 background screen color.
But there have certainly been times, particularly when working with images that have a very similar gray background color, where I can see how it would be a distraction.
The featured techniques focus on marrying a CG building constructed in Modo and rendered using Rhino into a base photo, as well as building up an atmosphere around the structure that supports the aim of the design.
Although it can be seen as a step-by-step guide, the process is not as linear as it seems.
I put the Ambient Occlusion layer on top of the RGB layer and changed the blending mode to Multiply. To achieve this, I created a new layer and used the Normal rendering channel to select the surfaces facing away from the light source and darken these with a black brush. I then changed the blending mode to Soft Light and used this to enhance what was already there. With a soft black brush with 50% opacity, I darkened the back of the doughnut shop and the cars. Using a brush with 50% opacity, I painted in dots of white and orange with different sizes in between the leaves. To do this, I first filled the scene with black and changed the blending mode to Soft Light. I pushed the curve down in the left end (Shadows) and up in the right end (Highlights) of the spectre, to make it an S-curve that increases the contrast.
In this Photoshop text effects tutorial, we're going to learn how to turn text into gold using Photoshop's Layer Styles. Now we're going to work on the original text layer, so click on it in the Layers palette to select it.

This time, rather than adding a bevel and emboss style to the text, we're going to add it to the stroke. We're going to add a bit of a glow to the text, as if some light was reflecting off the gold.
Then click on the color swatch directly below the word "Noise", which brings up Photoshop's Color Picker.
Scroll down the list of available brushes until you come across one that looks like a fancy "X".
Change the brush size after each click to add even more randomness by using the right and left bracket keys to increase or decrease the brush size on the fly. I love and appreciate design, all forms of art, traveling, movies and learning different languages :-).
A lot of of work goes into this blog, so I hope you find it inspirational, informative, and fun! If you hold down Shift and press the keyboard short cut several times you will cycle through the tools e.g.
Those are perfect examples of situations where it would be helpful to change the Photoshop CS5 background screen color. It inevitably involves going back and forth between layers; adding, adjusting and tweaking, until it feels right. I adjusted the camera angle and lens width, and matched the lighting with that of the photo. I duplicated the photo and put it in front of the CG building, then used the Pen tool to mask out everything except the buildings that sit in front of the CG building. Next, I made an elliptical selection touching all four edges of the image and added a feather of 150 pixels. Choose a font from the Options Bar at the top of the screen, then click inside the Document Window and enter your text.
Click on the color swatch directly below the word "Noise", which brings up the Color Picker. Grab the Brush tool from the Tools palette or press B on your keyboard to quickly select it. Finally, set the Size to around 29 pixels, and then click OK to exit out of the Layer Styles dialog box. For those interested in, we also have a post for Photoshop users called OVER 50 PHOTOSHOP FOOD AND DRINK TUTORIALS. Whether this choice is because your image is starting to blend in with the Photoshop background or simply because you are tired of looking at a gray screen, it is one more aspect of the program over which you have control. In the "Shading" section, click on the down-pointing arrow to the right of the words Gloss Contour and once again select that Ring - Double option, which is the third one from the left on the bottom row.
Finally, over on the left in the menu area, once again click inside the Contour checkbox to enable it.
