Our Rules


  • No Photoshop editing requests. Check /r/picrequests or /r/photoshoprequest instead

  • No spam. Posting content with the sole purpose of promoting your YouTube channel / website is not allowed. No URLs or social media handles in post titles.

Don't post Photoshop creations that promote real brands or products (such as advertisements, YouTube thumbnails etc.)

  • Low quality content will be removed. Mods can and will remove content that does not meet our quality standards, such as memes, face swaps, beginner/low effort/unoriginal edits, low resolution images or questions like "is this photoshopped?" or "What font is this?". For image identification see /r/sleuths and /r/RBI, for fonts see /r/identifythisfont

  • You can post content you have made with Photoshop as long as you have actually put some effort in.

  • Don't use the subreddit as a personal art gallery You can share your creations, but you must wait at least 10 days before posting more. You can share several works at once by making an album.

  • Also consider being an active member of the community by commenting on others' posts and helping users solve their problems.

    Digital paintings should be posted on a more relevant subreddit, such as /r/DigitalPainting

  • When posting your Photoshop creations, explain the process and context. Leave a comment shortly explaining the process of how you created your artwork / edit. Posting before/after pics is encouraged.

  • Also explain the motivation or context behind your work, or what you were trying to achieve.

  • Use descriptive titles. Posts with titles like "A composite I made", "Made this because I was bored", or "what do you guys think about this?" will be removed.

  • Don't humble brag with titles like "My first try at Photoshop, It's not much but I'm proud.". UPPER CASE TITLES and "Urgent!" posts will also be removed.

  • No Piracy. Posts and comments about DRM circumventing / file sharing of Photoshop or any other commercial software will result in a permanent ban.

  • No document forgery. Asking how to alter official papers, screenshots, ID cards, licenses, masking signatures and removing watermarks will also result in a permanent ban.

  • No NSFW content.

  • Be nice. Don't be rude, period. Try to follow the reddiquette

  • NO PHOTOSHOP REQUESTS!!! in case you missed it the first time around.

  • General


    • 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.

    • Message the mods if you think you are getting blocked by the spam filter or have any questions, comments or suggestions.

    Hi, I'm new to photoshop and teaching myself how use it for digital collages.

    I'm currently working on an project that requires me to cut out background of my hand drawn words. How should I go about removing the background that is seen through the lowercase 'e'?

    how can I tell if a jpeg was saved baseline standard or optimized?

    I'm uploading a jpeg of some art to an online printing service that prefers jpeg to be saved "baseline standard", not "baseline optimized". How can I tell which way my jpeg was saved?

    Thank you!

    Can I edit a photo for this type of work?

    I would like to change the collar position or length of a Shirt in a Picture... Or I would like to move the pocket to a different position on a shirt... Is possible or not within a short amount of time?

    I know you can change the entire outfit on a picture... I also believe that changing any other aspects of a photo should not be possible as it is not drawn and would deform the shape.

    I am just wondering recently with AI or any other tools this is actually possible or not... If yes, key names of the tools (preferably free) to use or links for a video would be nice.

    Photoshop Storage Issue

    Hello! I'm a new Photoshop user and I had a quick question regarding PC Storage when the program is open. When I have Photoshop running, I am losing gigabytes of storage at a time. When I close PS, everything goes back to how it was before, but when it's open I'm constantly losing storage and it's very confusing. Has anyone else experienced this, and how can I fix it?

    Lost everything in my Library

    I have created a pretty large library and I use items from the library daily. I organize the library items into folders.

    I just notice in the last few days, all items in the library are gone. But the folders are still there.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Do we have to go about rebuilding our libraries? Will they disappear again?

    Help with fill?! It always leaves a ring of unfilled pixels. Maybe it’s the brush?

    Photoshop Express text option insists on multiple lines?

    On Photoshop Express. When adding text, no matter how you arrange the sizing, it automatically places the words how it wants. I have tried everything. It insists on multiple lines, no matter what I do. I want all of the words in one sentence, and will sacrifice sizing to do so. I used to be able to format however I want on Photoshop Mix, before they got rid of it. I’m stuck in this weird haiku format.

    Clearing up CCTV footage to make license plate visible?

    My friend was recently in a hit and run and got surveillance/security footage of the car that collided with hers and drove off. We’re trying to make out the license plate (police haven’t been much help so far). Can anyone help me enhance the photo to make it more readable? Is it even possible since the image is so blurry?

    How to turn off Ctrl Z holding effect?

    I need to turn off holding effect cause while holding Ctrl Z it won't undo any changes, but it actually starts moving the layer and that often triggers me. How to disable this?

    assign coordinates to corners of a shape

    Hi everyone, I am currently working on a project and should create a mouse cursor in Photoshop. Instead of just drawing it I would like to create it so that all sides etc are the same length. After several hours of trying and tutorials I have not found a way to do this.

    Is there a way to create a rectangle (or a shape with more corners) where I can assign coordinates to each corner?

    Any way around the weird custom shortcut rules?

    I'm an artist coming from CSP and I'd like to be able to set the shortcuts that I created for myself and that I'm very used to already, like del to clear layer or 1 to flip view horizontally. Photoshop says the shortcuts require ctrl key or an F key, which is super inconvenient and would just slow down my workflow. Is there any way to set these shortcuts to just the one key (plugins, older version, something in settings, anything)?

    Error 4 in Photoshop jsx script

    Hi,

    I've tried to write a script to process 800 high resolution files that I have - I need to resize them to smaller dimensions, place another image on top of them and save with a new filename. With below script it fails with Error 4 on Line 2. Adobe Photoshop has full permission to folders on my device.

    // Define the folder containing the files
    var folderPath = "/Users/drcs/Desktop/Circuits/To print/Cropped_lowres/tracks/”;
    // Define the path to the image to be placed on top
    var overlayImagePath = "/Users/drcs/Desktop/Circuits/To print/Cropped_lowres/tracks/frame.png”;
    // Open all files in the folder
    var files = Folder(folderPath).getFiles(„*.png”); // Adjust the file extension if needed
    // Open the overlay image
    var overlayFile = new File(overlayImagePath);
    var overlayDoc = app.open(overlayFile);
    // Loop through each file
    for (var i = 0; i < files.length; i++) {
    var file = files[i];
    // Open the file
    var doc = app.open(file);
    // Duplicate the overlay image
    var overlayLayer = overlayDoc.artLayers[0];
    overlayLayer.duplicate(doc, ElementPlacement.PLACEATBEGINNING);
    // Close the overlay document without saving changes
    overlayDoc.close(SaveOptions.DONOTSAVECHANGES);
    // Resize the image
    doc.resizeImage(2480, 3543);
    // Save the modified image under a new filename
    var fileName = file.name.slice(0, -4); // Remove the file extension (.png)
    var newFileName = fileName + „_framed.png”; // Append "_resized" to the original filename
    var newFile = new File(folderPath + newFileName); // Construct the new file path
    doc.saveAs(newFile);
    // Close the document
    doc.close();
    }

    Any chance that you can help with this one guys?

    How do I merge 2 images into 1?

    I have already blended 2 images to make it look like they are connected but, I want to combine the 2 images so that when I apply layer styles it applies to the image as a whole, not one part of it. I want to edit the 2 images as 1 image. How do I combine the 2 images into 1? Thanks.
