Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Control your Feathering

I recently discovered a very nice way to add feathering to an image that gives you considerable control over your feathering. The technique requires the Mask Panel. So, the method may be limited to Photoshop CS4 and CS5. I do not know if someone can find a way to do it in Photoshop Elements.

Here is an example of what you can do. For example, say you wanted to select a portion of this image.

 And, have your selection feathered so that it blends with the background of the layout you put it on. For example.

Watch the video to see how to control your feathering.

You will need the Password to view the video.
The Password is feather
Enter "feather" to see the video.

I hope that you enjoyed the video and seeing how much control you have when you feather a selection. I saw this technique demonstrated by Dave Cross at NAPP.

That's all for now.

Awesome video, Earl! That is a great method for feathering. I'm excited to give it a try.

Thank you for taking the time to share this, Earl! I'm going to have fun experimenting. -Terri

Rosie said...

Thanks for sharing your expertise Earl... I have CS2 and maybe that method won't be available, but the NAPP is going to be worth investigating! =)
