A Tilt-Shift effect on your image gives it the impression that the subject is actually a scale model. It does this by dramatically simulating a shallow Depth of Field along with an increase in the color saturation.
Photoshop CS4 has a great new feature called the Pixel Grid. The pixel grid appears when you zoom past 500% and can help with editing at the pixel level.
Adding guides to your Photoshop document are a great way of making sure everything’s aligned nicely.
Guides can be dragged from the Rulers on the edge of your document, or you can also use the “View > New Guide…” menu option.
One of the first changes you’ll probably notice when upgrading to Adobe Creative Suite 4 (CS4), is the use of tabs to display your windows. Previously, your windows “floated” within the CS4 interface. Now, they dock neatly up against the Options panel.
This is a simple Photoshop tutorial to create a “Vista style” tabbed menu bar that you can use for your website layout, much like I’ve used on my own site.
The above image is one that I cooked up earlier so that you can see the finished layout 🙂
