  1. I’m having trouble with this in CS3, when I create the adjustment layer, I cant change the color, I set it to any color and it will just switch back to either black or different shades of grey. Its extremely frustrating, have you heard of this problem with CS3 before?

  2. I have NEVER used CS3 before I got it today and I was able to follow every instruction and did complete a wonderful masterpiece thanks to this video!

  5. I think this is a great tutorial, but I can’t get through it all. After the liquify effect is applied, there seems to be a commercial, and it never finishes the tutorial. How do I finish it?

  6. Hi, migz here
    firstly i would just like to say that all the advise, tips and methods are extremely awesome
    to the full extent of the word and I’d just like to thank everyone for the efforts the put into this site and all the help it offers.

    I’m a first year student to become a graphic designer one day (hopefully), and all these things are very helpful, and as much as i love it i cant always access it when I need or want to because of internet issues, so I’d just like to know if you guys (and ladies if any present) can suggest where i can find these tutorials in a text form so i can save it on my computer for later help and reference.

    thanx

  12. Hi, how are you?
    I’m a beginner and have sony vegas editing soft and want to add fire effects and other 3d’s on my video titles.
    Do I need aditional software for special effects? Is there any free downloading sites to get those effects, please?

  13. I am using CS2 and when I go to use the artistic filters near the end of the tutirial, they are unavailable to me (faded out). Little help?

  14. For a REALLY awesome effect to further this, go into your channels and Crt click the blue and fill that selection with yellow. Then, shut off this new layer, and do the same with the green channel, filling it with orange. Adjust the blend mode as necessary.
