The cheapest way to get Photoshop is with the Photography Plan, which includes Lightroom and costs about $10/month depending on where you are. And yes, it's cheaper than getting PS alone (long story, don't ask).
Photoshop CS2 is NOT (and has never been) free.

That's pretty much it :)
So, my gf has been tasked to do more for her yearbook project, other than layout, and basically the client isn't happy with the backgrounds they chose when the photos were taken and want it switched. The original background is what can only be described as a green / yellow radioactive cloud. Truly awful and a wonder why the school even chose it to begin with.
Anyway! Because she has to do around 1400 swaps, with her stripping the original background, placing the student in a new background she designed and then blending / colour matching the student into this new background, I did notice that at her current rate it's going to take a long time to repeat this prcoess for so many photos.
So I was wondering if anyone knew of an efficient way to do this? One where she isn't spending so much manual time per photo? Thanks.
Hey guys I have hp iCore 3 pc and it’s very slow for software like photoshop etc. I have been using this pc for a while now and I was thinking to buy iCore7. Any recommendations
As it says in the title, hope it makes sense.
I always struggle working around hair - I do a lot of work where people want clean backgrounds, but really struggle with fly away hairs etc.
The ideal would be to smooth it all off and then stamp/brush/overlay in the hairs on the sides afterwards - Does such a thing exist? Sorry if my Jargon isn't on point, but hopefully someone knows what I mean.
It seems to be easy, but I'm not familiar with the scripting terms of Photoshop, so I would appreciate some help with a simple script.
A want to change the hue of a selected solid color layer randomly to another. Saturation and lighness should stay the same. That's it, nothing more. :)
And maybe some info on how I can execute scripts from within actions, that would e great.
Many thanks in advance.
Hi everyone, my question is: is it possible to stack images with auto blend in photoshop maintaining their "smart object" status?
what I would like to do is open 3 images from Lightroom to photoshop as smart object, then align and stack them (I would try automatically) maintaining the possibility to use camera raw on the original raw file, is it possible automatically or I have to align and create masks to stack the foto? because if I open images as layer, I can do align and stack with the functions, but camera raw will work not on a raw file, but on a tiff.
Show me your workspace wich is most comfortable for your work.
Hi! There are several different colors going on each subjects skin, so this isnt a simple color layer. Does anyone have a tutorial on how to take a regular image of a person and make these color adjustments?
I had assumed that artboards merely allowed you to use the space outside of your main canvas, while retaining the same frame (thus, when you save as jpg or whatever it only exports the image contained within the main canvas, discarding anything outside the canvas).
But this isnt so. It appears to me that an artboard is just a large canvas where the layers of the artboard are contained in what is effectively a layer group.
What am I missing or misunderstanding?
I cancelled my Adobe account, and cut off my credit card from them, but they keep emailing me and texting me that my billing info is out of date. I reached out to them months ago and told them I was done. They responded by offering me a few months free, which I told them I didn't want.( I documented the chat with the customer service person.) I told them I just wanted the account off my mind. The few months have gone by and again they are hitting me up with emails and texts about my billing information. I think they are trying a tactic of being persistent. I find it hostile and off putting.
Hey guys, i hope u can help me. My neighbours' dog sadly died recently, and I'd like to offer a souvenir. I have a photo of them, however the quality is not the best and I've tried everything but I'm not an expert in Photoshop either. Could anyone give some tips? Many thanks
As title, I need to switch it to "never" every once in awhile, is there any way to turn it off permanently?
I found this pics on www.steamgriddb.com (to custom my steam library) and I would like to make other art like this for my entire library.

I think I'm good with this ?
If you have any tips that would be great !
I have photoshop cc coming from older photoshop cs6. I notice when i use the liquify tool and change brush size using ALT+RIGHT CLICK (drag left or right) mouse. The windows cursor appears and makes it annoying cause the mouse drag goes where it is pointed making it skip. Also everytime i change to a different tool the brush size changes rather than keeping the same size as the other tool. Does anyone know how to fix this?
Photoshop learner here. I have been getting into graphic design and I have some designs that I want to put on a t-shirt, however I'd like to break-up the sold square shape of a lot of my designs.
Many t-shirts have this sort of broken-up faded gradient border look so that the border looks more naturally part of the shirt. Do any of you have any video links or key phrases that I can search for to achieve this affect?
For months now I have had a problem with the Keyboard shortcuts. For example, If I hit the B button to switch to brush it will occasionally switch to it for a split second, and then right back to the previous tool. sometimes I will hit it a second time and it will switch. Other times I will hit it dozens of times and it will not switch. Photoshop has had multiple updates since i have had this problem, and I have also reinstalled the program. Every other feature works fine, and every other program on my computer works properly. It is so random that it can't be a preference setting I don't think Anyone have this problem too or know how I can fix it?
Apologies for the title being unable to contain all relevant information. In "Copyright Registration Guidance: Works Containing Material Generated by Artificial Intelligence", mostly it's about AI art not being copyrightable, and they specify that that includes where there is human input or modifications to generated works - the whole work may be copyrightable because of that human input, but any AI generated parts of it are not. If you're anything like me, this immediately made you think of Photoshop's many AI features. Fortunately for those who hate ambiguity, they thought of that too, and specified that while an author of a work using Photoshop could maintain copyrightability of the work as a whole due to the human authorship it does contain, "To the extent, however, that an artist uses the AI-powered features in Photoshop, the edits will be subject to the above analysis. [aka the AI parts aren't eligible for copyright protection]"
Basically, it sounds like it's unlikely that Photoshop produced works will lose copyright altogether, but rather that specific parts or edits made to the image may no longer be copyrightable. They didn't talk about which specific AI-powered features in Photoshop they meant, but the most obvious to me would be Select Subject, Object Selection Tool, Neural filters, and Sky Replacement as they're all based on neural networks. I have
no idea how on Earth you're meant to identify which parts of an image were caused by the AI used for Select Subject, but that's their guidance. Content Aware Fill seems borderline to me, as it's very clearly an automated/mechanised process and you just select where it applies, but it's not done with neural networks and it seems like that's what the copyright office is referring to as AI.
The most important and real world consequence of this is that there are new obligations to report any AI generated content in your copyright applications, and if your old copyright applications don't contain such a report but do contain AI art such as Sky Replacement, Neural filters, or Select Subject, they may no longer be valid and need to be updated. They specify exactly how to update them in the guidance, here: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2023/03/16/2023-05321/copyright-registration-guidance-works-containing-material-generated-by-artificial-intelligence#footnote-34-p16193
TL;DR: The US copyright office has issued new guidance stating that the output of AI art tools isn't copyrightable, even when it's mixed in with human authorship in a broader work which is copyrightable. They also stated that this explicitly includes Photoshop's AI editing tools. Here's a list (not from them) of Photoshop tools that contain significant AI: Select Subject, Object Selection Tool, Neural filters, and Sky Replacement. If you've used any of those tools in a registered work, you need to update your copyright registration. This is because the copyright application for a work is required to disclaim the copyright on any AI output it contains.
