    Hi Matt:
    Speaking of
    “You can’t have enuff shortcuts” I add an international touch to your tipp:

    1.) If you keep pressing cmd+[1-7] the apropriate panel opens and CLOSES
    2.) you can do the same on the left panel too:
    just throw in the crtl key => so cmd+ctrl+1 opens / closes Katalog

    => diabolic, isn’it`??

    Corey’s tutorial:

    My white lines weren’t picking up any of the background colors. Even when I switched the blend mode to Color Dodge nothing happened. Anyone else have this problem?


  14. This F.A.D. is really fantastic…. (can’t really find a word what I feel !)… I will definitely replace my “High pass” sharpening with the “FAD” ! Thanks Calvin Hollywood !

    To the Photoshop Guys, you really rocks ! I’m waiting for each show ! Thanks you all !

    The Pen tool Does NOT accept Pen Pressure

  16. Keith says:

    Great show guys!

  17. Bobby says:

    The F.A.D. technique is really interesting! Calvin also “discovered” a really cool SKETCH effect with the new Divide blend mod in Photoshop CS5. Here his technique:

    1. Duplicate the layer
    2. Change blend mode to “Divide”
    3. Filter -> Blur -> Gaussian Blur (Radius 2,0)
    4. Add a Level adjustment layer, then move the dark slider to the right to darken the picture.
    5. Add a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer (Saturation -100)

    And… that’s it!
