Scanning Images to turn into Photoshop Brushes?

Question by Jammin’: Scanning Images to turn into Photoshop Brushes?
Hi!

I scanned images that I drew in pencil with a Lexmark scanner, saved them as JPEG with the built in scanner program it comes with. I was going to use them in Photoshop to turn them into brushes. Every time I do that, however, the “DEFINE BRUSH PRESET” is “unclickable”. It is washed out so I cannot click on it.

If you scan hand drawn images, to make them into brushes can you tell me what I am doing wrong, or what your procedure is that works?

I’m using CS4, but I do have CS5 Master Collection Installed.

Thanks!
MOZ – I tried it and it still isn’t working? Any other ideas?

Answer:

Answer by MOZ
You have to make them into PSDs.
Open your .jpgs, and then duplicate the image (Image>Duplicate). Now you can make a brush preset from your duplicated image, which is not a .jpg.

In the top bar (where the brush setting is) Click on the carat. Then click on the carat next to master diameter. Then you’ll want to select “load brushes.” Then load the downloaded brush files. Good luck!

you change a picture, then apply effects to all pictures and it applies the changes you made to that ONE picture, to every picture you select in the album.

Q&A: Does Photoshop CS4 require you to manually create alpha channels to save clear images?

Question by Luna: Does Photoshop CS4 require you to manually create alpha channels to save clear images?
I use 7.0 and it automatically saves images as you make them transparent or opaque. I have never had to create an alpha channel because it already does it. But when I tried demos of the newer versions of photoshop, instead of saving the TGA image as clear or opaque, it just makes the checkered areas solid white.

Does anyone know why? Did they remove this feature from the newer versions?

Answer:

Answer by Joe-Devola
I’m not sure about TGA’s but you could save it as a gif or png.
File > Save for Web (make sure transparency is checked)

Q&A: Why do images i copy and paste (from firefox) into Photoshop CS4 have a black background?

Question by bionut: Why do images i copy and paste (from firefox) into Photoshop CS4 have a black background?
If i goto a website, copy an image, and paste it into photoshop CS4, for some reason the background always is black. I never had this problem with CS3 and i can’t figure out why its doing this? Does anyone have any ideas?

The only way i can get around it is to save the image to my harddrive, open in photoshop, copy the image in photoshop, and paste into my other photoshop document.

Perhaps you’re trying to copy an image from a video?

Most video players have the hardware acceleration (or video accelleration, cant remeber which one XD), Which means the video is actually a “second” window (or we can consider it a second layer), and stamp R sist actually takes a screen only of the First layer, Thus everytime you take a Pic of a video it will only show the first layer (Black screen) and not the 2nd layer (The video), You can fix this by deactivating the hardware accelleration (or video accelleration >.>).

While… If it’s not a video or anything like that, It happens to me too sometimes… Dunno why, But i fix it by just simply left click on it once. =P

Hope it helped and sorry for my english, I’m Italian =D
