Cinemagraphs in Photoshop

Posted on May 13, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on May 16, 2015

This short tutorial will run you through one method of creating a cinemagraph in Photoshop. A cinemagraph is a photograph with very subtle repeating movement. This tutorial will run you through techniques and skills associated with this medium which include Masks, Converting Video Frames to Layers, and Saving for the Web among others.  This is a great technique for creating artworks but can also be very useful in terms of presenting repeated instructional images. A great example of this are Daria Khoroshavina's animated photographic recipes which can be found on her Behance profile.

Drum Machine

Posted on May 11, 2015 by Kev Lavery Last Activity on May 11, 2015

The HTML 5 Drum Machine is (as the name suggests) an online drum machine. With a range of different drum sounds (crashes, snares, kicks, etc.), drumkits (Hip Hop, Electro, Acoustic, Techno, House) and editable volumes and tones it is great for composing across a range of tempos and styles.  Beats can be exported as WAV files which can then be imported into Adobe Audition as drum tracks. It takes a little bit of playing around with to get the hang of it but it is well worth the small investment in time.
