Presentation at The Adobe Headquarters for The Creative Cloud User Group of San Jose
I recently had the pleasure of presenting for the Creative Cloud User Group of San Jose at Adobe HQ.
This is a user group managed by my friend, Sally Cox, who was the person that invited me to speak.
I had a fantastic time and was thrilled to see all the support I had from people who attended in person and from people watching online.
We were also really fortunate to have Ed Dempsey from Wacom, who brought in all the new Wacom hardware for the attendees to play with.
None of this would have been possible without Sally, so please help me say “thank you” by liking her user group’s Facebook page and following her on Twitter.
Sally has a new guest speaker every month; you can watch all presentations online. If you Join her MeetUp page to stay up to date on the latest speakers.
Thank you so much for this workshop and the files included! I am using photoshop for a long time and still learning new skills.
Just a the beginning of this video you did a quick mini project of the man in the first 01-perspective psd file.
Where would you take your lines from (from the man) to determinate “his” horizon? (if you haven’t got the shot with the man on a layer with the horizon).
Thanks in advance!
The horizon line is where the sky meets the ground plane. For that image it was simple because on his original background, he was standing in front of a body of water and it was clearly visible. If it weren’t, you would follow lines that are parallel that converge onto a point. If you have no lines to follow, then you can make a good guess by looking at the image and figuring out where the sky would meet the ground plane.
If you have an image with a solid color background, then look at the image and decide whether the camera was pointing up or down when the shot was taken. If it was pointing up, then the horizon line is under the center of the image. If it was pointing down, then the horizon line is above the center of the image.
Thank you for the detailed response . This will help me.
