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.

I don’t know. Just want to share with you guys
I am trying to find a way to type a simple copyright logo onto an image in Photoshop Express on a Chromebook.
Using the text tool you can type or paste plain text but for some reason the copyright logo character doesn’t work.
Does anyone know a way around this?
Thanks so much,
I would like to ask for and advise regarding the exceeding stripes out of the white circle. Is there any way to erase those parts?
I'm using several brushes to paint with a Wacom Cintiq and I like the brush rotation feature (I mean the brush option, not the old art pen feature). But for some reason it stops working after some time. The "brush tip" freezes and I can't rotate it anymore. Has anyone an idea how to solve this? It's very annoying and I have to restart PS to make it work again.
I’m new to retouching photographs in Photoshop - my usual workflow has all been in Lightroom Classic. My question is, if I’ve done some retouching in Photoshop and then want to bring the photo into Lightroom to edit the color, light, etc., what’s the best way to do that? I know you can’t export an image as RAW once it’s been imported into Photoshop and edited but I don’t want to lose all the information in the highlights and shadows to work with. Is there a usual process/workflow that photographers use I’m unaware of?
I an a newbie at ps and I have a major problem. My text gets mixed up with the colors of the background what trick is there to make my text popout more
Anybody know how to get this effect in PhotoShop? I've got 2024 beta, atm, if that's any help. I
For some reason the image isn't showing. See below, cheers.
Hi! Had a question about plug-ins for Photoshop, and am hoping this is the right thread/forum.
I use Photoshop for making comics, there are other drawing apps, but Photoshop has always been my go to. The only thing it's missing for me, is a perspective grid. I saw a video where someone used a plug-in that allowed them to use 1,2 and 3 point perspectives, and draw lines that snapped to the perspective lines. It was over 6 years ago, though, so not sure if it would still be available, or where to look!
Would anyone know if there is a perspective plug-in for Photoshop? I've never used plug-ins before, so it's kind of new territory for me. Any info, or sites/resources would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
When I click on the font menu for a selected text object, it defaults to the top of the alphabet/recently used fonts, versus highlighting the current font in order within the list. So if I was using Petrucci, I'd have to scroll allllllll the way down back to P to keep auditioning fonts beyond.
Is there a pref setting for this behavior?
I'm back using PS after a long hiatus and this immediately struck me as being odd. If you have a shape selected and click the fill icon in the toolbar or in the appearance panel, any color changes aren't reflected until you click OK. Whereas, if you double-click the shape, when you make color adjustments in *that* window, they're live-updated.
Looking to add this effect to a family photo as an anniversary gift, any advice?
it just automatically applies the transformation as soon as I click on something else (the zoom tool for instance). I don't know what caused photoshop to start doing this but it's extremely obnoxious. I have searched online for an answer to this problem but I can't find any mention of it.
So I was copy pasting a single image on to other images and I always have to correct the color so that it matches the original. I have been using curves adjustment layer to make sure the color matches, by alt clicking the auto button then choosing " Find Dark & Light Colors ". But these past 2 days, using this options creates a sepia tinge on the pasted image, I had to use " enhance monochromatic contrast " for it to not happen.
But the thing is, on some images, the pasted image does not have this sepia tinge despite using " Find Dark & Light Colors " its really bugging me out cause I can't figure out why it suddenly happened.
I had an idea that I thought would be pretty easy to do but so far I have been stumped. After a couple hours of youtube and googling I arrived here from another post. What I was trying to do was apply a group of colors to text and have it alternate each letter with a color. Is that possible?
I see color overlay and gradient but that would just do one color or a gradient of the entire text layer vs coloring each letter. I really don't have much experience in scripts and a little experience in recording actions. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
so there is this image i have to print to fit a wall and its going to be 4 meters high and 8 meter width so i just set the photoshop file as 800 cm x 400 cm with 150 dp and the file turned like 4 gigabytes bigger! thats is too much! is this normal?
I’m finally going to start printing off some of my photos that I’ve taken over the years but the shop I was going to upload my photos to to print requires them to be at largest 40 MB.
My image is currently at 60 MB and it is also to the correct size for the print (20x30)
How do I adjust the file size without jeopardizing quality?
i dont have photoshop and I am new to photo editing. Below is an human logo i screenshot from another image and removed the background. however, it is blurry. how do I make it not blurry and totally black and original
Hello. Looking to pay for this if someone is available to help with quick results! Want that TV removed as well.
Can somebody please create a logo for me using the NFL shield logo but replacing the “NFL” with “UFF”? It is for my fantasy football league and I’ve been trying to over an hour and can’t figure it out…
Old school, now coming back… to get a new sky or expand the borders seems ok … even coming from a purist darkroom guy I get weird shit for a sky refill though… added 5 floors to the building not in the selection, back to selecting.. mask.. use my own sky library… But the get a lil bit expanded image in that part you didnt get but from YOUR image.. cool. It ain’t working for me yet though. Their examples work far better than my trials. I feel it’s a setup as as they work out the bugs then they will charge you extra after X usages to use someone else’s image? Not AI for pros, just a gimmick apple app. I have a few skies that are unique… i don’t think there is real AI until it pulls from my original image or library.. not from the vastness of the web. So Im not really sold on the hype.. it’s not really there. No offense.. i dont want your sky’s in my shot lol. But again… trying to expand my image… which AI of MY image.. cool. Not there yet.
Disclaimer, i still have my floppies of pshop.. paid 700 in the late nineties, we started with pirated copies (supported by adobe) to get the program (now called apps) to the mainstream. Whole ‘nother post. AI is a buzzword. Hell “feather” and “add noise” was at one point. It’s cool to see my fingers hit the right shortcuts from muscle memory though. #AI#WTFisflair#oldschool#imback
I haven't used PS since CS6...you can't control fill/stroke for text objects anymore?
One of my best friend's mother just passed away. I have a photo from the 90's of him with her, that has discolored with time, (yellowing, shadows extending past their range.)
How can I find someone to remaster the image?
Which websites, media, etc., would you recommend that I go to, to make the photo my friend looks at, look like the woman he remembers?
Thank you in advance!
