  1. Ok, so the problem appears to be that you've used a much too small brush when liquifying. For this kind of thing, I'd estimate that you'd use a brush almost as big as the distance from the tip of her nose to the tip of her chin, if that makes sense.
  2. Maybe you're right. But I haven't heard of Dropbox doing it. It's more likely something on his computer.
  3. Oh! Those are Facebook dimensions. See how it says 2048? You need to ask him for the original camera files.
  4. I'm not optimistic here. Even if you could make the angle work on the first one (and it might be feasible) the shadowing would be a killer
  5. Do you happen to know what camera they were shot on? If you go to File>File Info, it should tell you.
  6. The first thing to do is view the filename and make sure its ".psd" extension is there as it should be.
  7. Hi Chasity, how many photos has he sent you? If it's more than one, do they all throw this error?
  8. I confess I haven't done this. Do you have a link to info about it?
  9. Regardless of what you might have read, the PPI is completely irrelevant for web photos, and 72ppi, even if it was relevant, hasn't been accurate for screens for many many years. There's no need to change the PPI before uploading here, or to any other website, I promise.
  10. I'm curious, though. Do you really think you'll be adding new layers so often that it warrants its own Wacom shortcut?
  11. Ctrl Alt Shift N, isn't it? That's what it's always been in every version of Photoshop I can remember. Cmd Opt Shift N on a Mac, I assume.
  12. I don't mean to be Captain Obvious, but have you tried simply a Hue/Saturation layer, choosing Reds? I just had a quick play, and +20/-15/+5 seems pretty effective. And shouldn't require painful masking.
  13. Well, it's very easy. While holding the pen, you click on the new layer icon at the bottom of the layers panel.
  14. Sorry, we can't be fooling around with photos that don't belong to us. Do you mind taking a photo of your own glass of water against a white background? Of course. If it's destructive, and you mess it up, you have no choice but to start over. Our goal is always to use sensible methods that can be undone or tweaked at any time, even after closing and re-opening the file.
  15. The previous post you're referring to didn't require transparency, as far as I'm aware. Just a white background. The method you're describing here, for transparency, is really clumsy and destructive. Can you post the original glass photo for me?
  16. That's wonderful. So, can you show me your result close up?
  17. It would be ok as long as you are replacing the sky with another very light sky. But yes, if you were wishing to replace it with anything much darker, it won't work.
  18. Yes, it's my belief that png files are the biggest culprit in this regard.
  19. Yes, I echo Christina's question. It's vital for us to know if the banding was already there in your raw edit, or if your subsequent Photoshop editing introduced it. So if you could go ahead and show us the SOOR, that would be great, thanks.
  20. Yes, over the next few weeks (heck, months maybe!) we'll be harvesting all the great resources from the old AD and turning them into articles on my website.
  21. First of all, congratulations! Is this your first child? Second, do you agree that the best option seems to be to remove his hand altogether? Do you have another photo in a very similar post where his hand wasn't there? Where your elbow was entirely visible?
