  3. Ahh! I have picture in frame, now i need to add 50 % gray fill.. you say shift + delete? dont work for me.. sorry, mistake is probably my english, thx!

  4. Your tutorial was realy good, i liked, isnt hard to do, with pr a little practice i can get nice resoult. Thank You So mutch.

  5. Nice … cool toys, especially appreciate how you clearly state pc and apple keys.

    One thing … DONT MOVE SO MUCH.
    In the video, you tend to move your layers constantly.
    Even when not forced to adjust or move them so we can see all your working layers. Its almost twitch like. At the beginning for example, you moved the girls image about 6 times before even doing anything to it.
    As well you tend to move your mouse randomly, and open menu’s your not going to use.
    To watch this type of random motion is nauseating to a viewer. We are trying to focus on every movement so we can learn the workflow, and if there are pointless random movements … we are forced to watch and follow all of them in case we need to log it as important.
    Think of it this way … your hand and brain is on the mouse, so your hand moves, your brain automatically disregards unimportant movement. As watchers, we dont have that luxury.
    You explain your actions and workflow well, and once you got busy, the random movements went away, as you had stuff to do.
    Just keep this in mind when you are talking and not doing much … keep your mouse still, and only make very purposeful, slow motions with each layer, to get it where you need it.
    If you practiced (and I can tell you do) the video this way, and found the most appropriate spot for each layer before hand, when you have 5 or 6 layers open at once, all you have to show us is one motion in the workflow, to get those layers there.

    Again, your skill is obvious, and we benefit from this stuff, but from your, and our perspective, watching it is very different from just doing it.

    Thx, and I hope you dont mind a little constructive criticism.

  6. Thank you, Excellent and top notch tutorial, I did have trouble with shift delete shortcut, might be that i’m using a pc, However i just added a new fill layer and it achieved the same result.

    Once again thank you i learnt lots more little tid bits that i will use every day :D

  7. Video finished before the process was over?? Mind you there is plenty to learn in what I saw anyhow! Thank you

  8. The only thing I don’t like about the finished piece is that the photo/glass seems to be sitting on top of the frame instead of in it. There was a point you could have added the bevel, that made it seem more like it was properly inside of the frame.

  9. Super!!! Thank you it is a wonderfull tutorial. I put my daughter picture in it. It looks great …thanks for the lesson.
    See you!

  10. Hi Corey
    I am glad to see that you have increased the size of your screen. It’s much easier to follow you now.
    Thanks

  11. Hi Guru!!
    That was really cool. A normal frame can be turned out into a splendid art work!!!! that is really great. I loved the video.
    Thanks a lot for that.

  12. hey corey. where can I get all those pictures for use in cs4?
    for example this girl and all the other pics you used in other tuts.
    great tuts by the way thanks !

  13. Nice!!! Keep the tutorials coming. Like an earlier commenter, I am still using CS4. As I’m sure many others have not upgraded to CS5 as well, it is helpful to see some tuts for the earlier versions. Very good job. You made this a simple, easy to follow process.
