Colorization Made Easy (by Keb) 11/21/2006
I am by no means a master at colorization and this method is by far not the quickest but it is the method I use. I will attempt to show you how I colorize by making one layer of color. To completely color a grayscale image, just repeat steps 2 thru 5. Sounds simple, right?

The vanishing point 9/17/2006
I’ve never found the vanishing point very useful, but it can be fun to play with. The main purpose must be the ability to clone in perspective e.g. remove stuff from a wooden deck or delete a painting from a wall with a repetitive wallpaper. In this tutorial we will change the texture of the house, install two addition windows and a sign with the assistance of the vanishing point filter found in Photoshop CS2.

The Bezier curves 9/11/2006
This mini tutorial will teach how to cut and paste with absolute precision. If you haven’t used the Pen tool before this will be hard and take some time, but when you know the technique you will be able to make perfect selections within seconds. The Pen tool is difficult to learn but I promise you it will be worth your while. The Bezier curves are vectors jointed by anchor points. The anchor points have handles that controls the curves. Paths are vectors and not pixels and can be scaled up and down in size and transformed without loosing quality. There are numerous vector tutorials, but this is how I learned to play with vectors and it teaches you the very basics. We will make a path around the “three” with 17 anchor points. You can cheat and make 300 anchors points, but you will not learn how to master the beastly Bezier curves.

Square tire 9/9/2006
Shape shifting something familiar like a round tire can give you a striking and unexpected effect. This tutorial can be applied to anything round – balloons, oranges, heads and when you’re at it you can also go the other way round and make something cubical round. This trick utilises the newly implemented Warp tool in Photoshop CS2. Now there is an easy way to turn something round into a square using Warp. Select the round object and apply Transform/Warp/Inflate (Set bend to 100). Though the method is too destructive for this tire, we will still make use of the Warp tool and the Smudge tool to create the square tire. This tutorial was originally written for Ilex Press book "Surreal Photography 2" which will be out next year, please remember to check it out if you find this tutorial useful. This is a slightly shortened version. Some of the images do suffer from the downsampling from 300 dpi and you have to find your own source images...
