Personally, I make use of Photoshop plugin - Alien Skin with which you can simulate the film behavior to your image, applying filters(to simulate for example polaroid film effects). The basic Alien Skin plugin is the Exposure. You can use it either as a Photoshop plugin or separately. Moreover, there exist another similar software called nik software. As ...


I personally use xnview. In the program there is batch convert mode where you can apply one or more filters. Here is how looks like P.S. Unfortunately i do not know if its possible to apply random effect


Lab is one of those colour spaces that people are either 'in the know' and use when it's appropriate or they just see as a bit of a scary place to be avoided. It's not a one-size fits all space and it takes some getting used to. The main reason to use Lab in a professional setting is that, once you get a handle on it, having Luminosity and Colour kept ...


For doing a perfect color correction without change the luminosity: read about from a guru of LAB Color space:


@jdlugosz - There are a couple of items - it's a big color space and for me, the key reason, is that I can adjust the colors / saturation without effecting the brightness.


The high pass filter is not something that can generate a mask of the skin tones within an image, hence why you wouldn't see much success trying to use it for this purpose. One possible solution would be to use PhotoShops Select → Color Range... option. I think in CS6 onwards there's an option in the Select drop-down box of "Skin Tones" This can be used ...


If you are doing much of this sort of work I would seriously suggest investing the time to learn Blender 3D - it will not cost you more than time and the sweat on your brow as it is completely free, (both without cost and Open Source), to get and to use for any purpose. It is cross platform but obviously needs a reasonable amount of storage and processing ...


In the Save As function the 0-12 quality scale is used, but in the Save For Web function a 0-100 scale is used. That 0-100 scale is probably close to the 1-99 scale specified in the standards. I compared the file sizes from the different settings, using a 21 MP image (so that the metadata is tiny compared to the image data), and came to this approximate ...


You can use Photoshop's Vanishing Point filter for this. It's easiest to use a 3D-capable version of Photoshop,¹ which I presume you have, since you haven't mentioned any other 3D software. There is an alternate path for those using a version of Photoshop that lacks the 3D features, which I will cover inline below. This technique works best with a ...


First, the color balance looks plausible in the picture you post, but of course I wasn't there and I don't know what the guy's skin color really is. Second, stone is a bad gray reference unless you have specifically measured it. I think your basic mistake is assuming the stone is supposed to be gray. Since you give not justification for that, I'll assume ...


Either you do it manually or by building a 3d model in a third party 3d modeling tool (or from a 3d scanned point cloud converted to a surface) and applying textures in Photoshop using Photoshop Extended's 3d model support. As far as I know, Photoshop doesn't have an automatic tool for figuring out geometries of a scene by image processing magic. (And even ...


I am the one who asked the quetion originally. Now the problem is solved. I don't know how. A few days ago, I used my new pen tablet, instead of mouse, from 'another' usb port of my laptop and the preview came back. I wrote the answer because it may help someo


You can try using to do this. You basically load the black and white image and the color image and then select colors from the color image to paint onto the black and white image. I hope this helps you!


If you want to change pixels non-destructively (as many times as you want) then Lightroom is your game. If you want to move pixels (in more ways than you can imagine) then its Photoshop for you. Check out this for a full explination
