Painted Edges

This technique, where you essentially erase the photo and then paint it back in, is particularly popular for landscape and portrait photographers, but it works so well, for so many different style photos, that you'll be amazed at how many other uses you'll find for it. In fact, at the end of the technique, I show how you can turn this into a template, and then drop any photo you want right in.

Quick Tip: What's in a name?

Adobe made a tiny change to a menu item that makes a whole lot of sense. To hide any of Photoshop's visual indicators (such as type highlighting, the Free Transform bounding box, non-printing guides, Slice borders, etc.) you would choose Show Extras from the View menu. That's right, to hide the extras, you'd choose Show Extras. It was one of those menu commands that really made you scratch your head. Adobe changed that, and now it's just called “Extras.” Either you want them or you don't, and as always, a checkmark next to the menu item lets you know if it's toggled on or off.
