    Photoshop Rectangle Stroke
    deniedaccess
    Hi,

    When using the Rectangle Tool (set to Shape) and applying a stroke I get an unwanted bevel effect. How can I remove this so all lines are equal? Thanks.

    In the '80s, I lived in a city with a lot of Maori people. When McDonald's opened up there, it was designed like a traditional Maori meeting house (marae) with wooden carvings of local Maori legend and...

    Before you change all the files, you better get some proper printed proofs so that you know for sure that the colour you are changing the files to is correct.

    How to get the colours you ...

    Ways to improve this:
    Turn off hyphenation or set it to words with 10 characters or more.
    Add automatic spacing after each paragraph. I use 2mm or 3mm.
    Headers would be a good idea....

  • Portfolio Photographic look, program??

    Is there a program that will make 2D flat design piece jpegs into a photographic look?
    I'm a print advertisement graphic designer, not 3D CAD, and I would like to have my portfolio design pieces online look like they were taken by a camera shot as a photography image. For example, label for a bottle, a brochure w/ the shadows and curves.
    Prefer MAC base application.

    I'm sorry but you're a print graphic designer and you're not aware you could achieve this in photoshop?

      My suggestion would be to start here.

        but yes, it would be much more impressive to physically mock them up and actually shoot them.

          Your best bet for a convincing 3D effect is to get some good printouts of your work and mock them up as folders, packaging etc. Arrange the pieces on light gray background paper and photograph them. Any imperfections can be retouched in Photoshop. This way the things look real — they do not look flat because they have actual dimension.

          I have done this sort of thing using Photoshop but I think this is actually much easier and has better results.

            That was my whole point.

                thanks all but i thought maybe there was a program out there that would do that effect like Maya (which I can't afford).

                  You could set up a 3D Scene complete with lighting and camera effects and apply your work to the models.

                  You could create a "3D" mockup in photoshop or any other image editor.

                  You could actually create a physical mockup and take photos of that using an actual camera.

                  As far as I know, there isn't a program out there to magically create realistic looking mockups. If you don't have the resources to set up a table top "photo shoot", then perhaps you're well accustomed with Photoshop or a 3D program?

                    If you want it to look like you took photos of your work... why not just take photos of your work? Nothing will look more authentic than the real thing.

                        Blender is a free 3D program. 3D has quite a steep learning curve, so I don't know if a few bottle mockups are worth the amount of time you have to invest.
