    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

    I can appreciate that you're trying to build your site from scratch, but why not use a portfolio hosting site that offers free templates until you're more comfortable with web design? There are plenty...

  • SOS!!! photoshop help...

    i remember last year when we learned photoshop we learned that you can go to layer-group and then you can merge layer in a way so that the layer above has the texture of the layer beneath it.
    but the color of the layer above stays.

    we learned photoshop 6 then. i have photoshop cs. you know-not the latest verssion. the 1 before.

    i have a layer with mask beneath -and another layer with a color above it and i want to make it so that the masked layer has the color of the layer above.

    strange i don`t find the group possibility in the layer menu. i search in other menus but i don`t find. i am doing it right now and if i don`t do it..................
    does anybody know?

    you could just change the mode of the colour layer to multiply or darken or something?
    The beginning is always today.

          Groups:
          In your layers panel, at the bottom, there is a folder icon. Click that for a new folder (Group) then you can drag your layers into that group folder.

          OR

          Holding down the Shift Key select the images on your workspace and then hit Clt+G and that will group them.

            I think what your looking for is that you need to change the blend mode of the layer. Change it to either color or hue, depending on which looks right.

              OR, it could be you are looking to make a "clipping group"? Press the "Alt" key (option on the mac) and move the mouse so that it is BETWEEN the two layers. The icon on the mouse changes to two circles. Click now and the top layer will be masked by the bottom layer. Continue doing that to add more layers, then flatten the image and you will have what you are looking for (I think).

                  First shortcut = Illustrator, Second shortcut = Photoshop.

                  To group in Photoshop, use Layer Sets. By default a layer set is set to "Pass Through" mode, which means that it doesn't change the effect other layers in the stack have on the layers in the set. (ie, adjustment layers, and blending layers will blend or adjust according to everything underneath, whether in or out of the layer set) If you set the mode of the Layer Set to normal, then it will isolate the layers in the set, so you can apply adjustments and/or blends independently of the rest of the document.
