3D Drop Back Logo

When the UPN TV network introduced their new logo, I just assumed they did it in a 3D program, but you can pretty much get the same effect (where it looks like the logo is dropping back, like a one-point perspective effect) from right within Photoshop, thanks to Photoshop's Free Transform Distort feature.

Quick Tip: Bigger previews in the Filter Gallery

The preview window in the Filter Gallery is pretty large, but you can make it even larger in two ways. First, the dialog itself is resizable—just grab the bottom right-hand corner of the dialog and stretch outward. Secondly, there's an upward-facing black triangle button, just to the left of the OK button. Click on this button, and the list of effects is hidden from view and the Preview area expands into that space. The good thing is, you can still choose different filters, now you just do it from the pop-up menu just below the Cancel button.
