Photoshop CS4 my gradient effects only appear in grayscale?

Question by Mey: Photoshop CS4 my gradient effects only appear in grayscale?
I apply a colored gradient, but it only shows up in hues of grays. What is wrong?

Answer:

Answer by nick
This might sound silly but is your image a black and white/grayscale image? See if the “mode” is set to RGB. If not see if changing it helps. (Image —> Mode –> RGB)

The only two other things I can think of (if the above isn’t the problem) is that 1. the layer you’re applying the gradient to is set to a blend mode causing it to look gray on your image (set it to normal if it’s not and see if it’s still happening), or 2. you have an adjustment layer affecting your gradient layer perhaps — apply a new gradient to the top-most layer with absolutely nothing above it and see if it’s still happening.

Answer by hoe slappa
1. open my computer
2. click on your c drive (or whatever your main drive is)
3. select users and click on your user profile
4. find the program folder that says photoshop
5. open folder and find “brushes”
6. open folder and move brushes where you want them

it’s usually preset to be in alphabetical/numerical order so try right clicking the folder to see if you can change the option…u can also use these steps to add new brushes like eye lashes contact lenses weave jewels sparkles etc….i use deviantart.com to see examples of what i mean u can check out my videos on youtube where i show how to use the lash and contact brush my youtube user name is daamn005

Q&A: How to produce an aesthetically pleasing watermark in Photoshop CS4?

Question by Sweetheart’s Anonymous: How to produce an aesthetically pleasing watermark in Photoshop CS4?
I had some photos used without my permission and I need to start watermarking. I want a watermark on my Flickr photostream photos. I want something that looks nice and that doesn’t overwhelm the photo. Please give me instructions/tips on how to do this. Thanks!

Answer:

Answer by James
Do you want advice on a visual style for your watermark, or just the technical side?
Basically, you create your design in a .png or .psd. Draw in white and leave the background transparent. then just copy and paste over your pics and turn the opacity down to around 30 in the blending options for that layer. Some people also add thin lines that go corner to corner, but that can overpower the picture a little. others also create inner shadows on the watermark to make it visible on a range of backgrounds.

need help with Photoshop cs 5. Brush problem.?

Question by Woop: need help with Photoshop cs 5. Brush problem.?
need help with Photoshop cs 5. Brush problem.?
So i have Cs 5 i think its the extended edition but it looks nothing like the other photo shops i;ve used. almost all the same features (its missing some from what i remember of the cs2 version) i cant find any brushes that don’t end with a sharp edge if you get me? usually the brushes i used would start faint until you add more pressure then the line would become the block colour you are using and as think as thick as you’ve selected then when ending the pen stroke it trails off like it gets thinner at the end of a stroke, but for some reason there is non of that type! I need that style of brush for the project im working on aswell. 🙁

Do you understand me?

I have a wacom tablet if that helps.

How do i find a brush like that? Or tweak a brush so that it becomes like that

Answer:

Answer by Mega
I think I understand.

Usually it’s two cases.

1. There is no brush itself.
solve>>Go to the brush option bar. Then click the ‘Brush preset picker’.
Click the right top button. On the bottom, you can see groups blahblah Brushes.
Click one of them and Click Append. Do this to all of them and you’ll be able to find brush you want.

2. When you paint some part, there is just one color and that’s all.(No strength controlling)
solve>>You’ll see ‘Flow’ on the brush option bar. control the percentage and you’ll know the difference

How do I create a 10″ envelope in Adobe InDesign CS4?

Question by Steph: How do I create a 10″ envelope in Adobe InDesign CS4?
I need to create a corporate identity package for a design class, using InDesign CS4, I have already created the letterhead and business card, but how do I create a 10″ envelope? There is no option for envelopes in the default document sizes but I know it is possible. Help??

Answer:

Answer by iDesign71
Instead of picking from the list of preset sizes in the New Document dialog, key in your own values – when you select say A4 you’ll see 210 and 297 but you can enter these values yourself too.

10″ envelope – do you mean C4 to fit a piece of A4 paper without folding? If so size is 324 x 229 mm, set orientation (portrait or landscape) depending on your requirements.

If a different size, measure the envelope you have to match and enter corresponding values.

Q&A: Why can’t I open my downloaded brushes on adobe photoshop?

Question by kirut: Why can’t I open my downloaded brushes on adobe photoshop?
I’m having real problems with my photoshop brushes that I’m downloading off the internet. Normally I download the file, open it in Winzip, unzip it, then extract the file into my brushes folder and when I open it in Photoshop it comes up.
I haven’t done it for a while, and when I went to do it a minute ago it won’t work. The brushes I have extracted don’t appear in the loading menu, when I open to folder?

The files are saved as PNG images, which isn’t correct is it?
Why is this and how can I change this? It’s on every site I donwload them from?

Answer:

Answer by Peter
Is it an ABR file? Photoshop uses that format for brushes.
