Update: Back into it!

7 01 2010

I have had a small hiatus over the Christmas and new year period, but now I am back. In the next few months I will release the updated version of my Photoshop Actions! Shortly after I have some great 3D and Photoshop tutorials coming your way. Also in 2010, I will have periodic posts relating to sales. It will be general in nature so that the principles can be applied to all areas of design or photography businesses.

I would also like to thank the customers that have put the re-touching and adjusting service to regular use over the holiday period. I know you are all very happy with the results. You have all helped me to go past 200 clients and well on the way to 300! In the short period of time that this service has been available, 200 is a fantastic result! Thankyou.


Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to you all and a safe and happy new year. To my many customers and visitors alike, 2009 has been a blast yet I’m sure 2010 will bring many more adventures and challenges. The only real challenge is that we enjoy the road ahead and let it make us grow in our work, passions and within ourselves.

Update: New actions soon!

3 12 2009

As promised in my last tutorial, I will soon release an updated version of the Photoshop actions that I released earlier. My previous pack was basically some time-saving actions, however, this time it will contain a lot more; much more.

Tutorial: B&W Explained

29 11 2009

Mentioned in my previous post, I have created a tutorial (of sorts) to try and debunk or clear up the methods involved when giving a photo or footage a black and white treatment. I show you four commonly used methods that I strongly disagree with then show you 3 methods that give you more control and power by being able to retain all the colour information/data.

Upcoming ‘Tutorial’ of sorts…B&W!!

26 11 2009

Across many forums I have constantly seen the use (or preaching the use of) desaturate or adjusting the saturation in Hue/Sat in order to get a B&W image. I have for sometime been banging on about why this is poor practise and with this ‘tutorial of sorts’ I will aim to show you every way of achieving a black and white effect as well as their pros and cons. I know many videos exist dealing with this exact point, however, I feel most focus on one or two effects and in the long run it adds to the confusion on what is a simple theory. The video should be out in a few days…. stay tuned!


20 11 2009

Just a quick update to the “Photo Adjusting & Re-touching Service” that was released today.  In addition to providing you with the finished adjustment image I will also provide the Photoshop project file that I use for your image so you can reverse engineer my techniques and learn from them. If you so desire. All of this in 48 hours and for that insane price? What other excuse could you possibly need to purchase this service?
