PhotoShop Help/Questions - Ask The Pros

Post by FullArmageddon on Mon Jul 23, 2012 1:11 pm



Whether you're an advanced user trying to figure out how to apply a certain effect or a new user trying to figure out the basics, this is the place to ask.

So I'm just curious as to how you guys do renders. I've seen a lot of different ways to do it on YouTube but I'm curious as to how you guys do it, especially PT cause his renders look amazing, no jaggy edges or anything. Do you guys use the pen tool, the lasso tool, or the quick select tool? What settings do you have for the tool? After you delete the background and you have the basic render, what tools do you use to clean things up?

Pen tool if you want really clean cuts. Make sure you use the Paths window as well, since it saves your pen tool drawing and you can make multiple pen tool selections.

After you're done tracing, right click, make selection. I personally make a copy of the render on a separate layer from the original image. if you work with nice resolution images, then there's no need for touch ups, unless you are making renders for others, then you can sharpen it and all that jazz.

That about sums it up
