Halloween is almost here. Don’t have a costume? Outfit yourself in post—with this week’s episode of Deke’s Techniques.
Deke shows how to turn a normal teenage boy into a dark elf—an effect you can re-create with any of your own photographs. The trick (or treat) of this technique lies in Photoshop’s Liquify feature, which can be applied as a nondestructive Smart Filter in Photoshop CC.

“Clarity halos” are what Deke calls it when the Clarity value in Camera Raw or Lightroom is increased beyond its normal threshold—resulting in unnaturally bright halos around edges or areas of rapid luminance transition in your photography.
Deke may have coined the name for this phenomenon, butas he points out, it’s a fairly common and recognizable problem—one he’ll show you how to solve in this week’s free episode of Deke’s Techniques.

As thousands of Adobe MAX attendees streamed to their sessions this week at the Los Angeles Convention center, they were greeted at the top of the stairs by an impressive new piece of art from digital artist Bert Monroy.
From a distance it looks like a simple photograph of a canal in Amsterdam on a foggy day—but when you get closer and see the intense amount of detail at every level, you realize this is no photograph. Every pixel in this giant image was created from scratch in Adobe Photoshop.

Every picture your child makes is a work of art. (Of course!)
But storing these precious drawings and paintings can be a pain. The colors fade, the paper disintegrates, and storage space in not infinite—no matter how talented your little artist is.
Happily, you don’t have to toss those paintings. With the help of Adobe Photoshop, you can move artwork off the fridge and onto the web.

The painting itself belongs to the Chicago Institute of Art, where Deke snapped a picture of it, but the image—well, as Deke says, the image “belongs to everybody!” So your conscience can rest easy following along with the instructions in this video.
