Quality of our ex-member Conbagui's tutorials

the reason why certain tutorials have such high values is because, he-who-shall-not-be-named copied the values from Photoshop tutorials, without 100% understanding what the values mean or how to translate them properly the Photoshop Bevel & Emboss layerstyle has a value from 1-1000% but a Bevel with...

Re: Displacement Glass/Chrome Effect

For example, in the 80ies there were lots of record covers and videogames with a desert landscape inside text, made with an airbrush. And this is often imitated in moder...

@Pat625

the 'green lake' one came out best ! especially on the word 'LAKE'

the one in the middle looks like you set the displacement values too high, not sure
looks more like a two coloured bevel

Re: Displacement Glass/Chrome Effect

Esper, I don't understand what you said to me about I could place the final glass text on other point, even on other different picture. How? I mean that the glass reflect will belong to the original picture. Thanks a lot. The main idea is not to glassify an image. The idea is to distort an image li...

Re: Displacement Glass/Chrome Effect

@Ella
i see, interesting approach !
maybe that solves my contrast problem


i always use a black layer set to 'Saturation' Mode for the black/white effect (with a layermask where i dont want it)
that minimizes the filesize (opposed to duplicating the image and desaturating it)
