How To Create A Pictogram Chart In Adobe Illustrator

Posted on Jul 7, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jul 7, 2015

It is inevitable. One day your client calls and asks if you could include a chart in an illustration. This was one of those tasks I tended to regard as a “Necessary Evil” because it meant I had to find a way to be creative with the pie, bar and scatter charts that tended to litter Annual Reports. This all changed with the rise of Big Data and Infographics. Suddenly the bars, slices and points were populated with amazing graphics that communicated the data in an easily-understood and engaging manner. One of the more common tools used for creating these projects is Adobe Illustrator, which has had a Graphing tool for many years. Though it started out as a rather simple chart creation tool over the years, as data visualization took hold, this tool became an important element in the data visualization arsenal. Instead of bars, illustrations of buildings and other Illustrator vector artwork can tell the story  more easily than a single-color bar on a graph. In this “... Read More

How To Use The New Dehaze Filter In Adobe Photoshop And Lightroom

Posted on Jul 3, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jul 3, 2015

Being a regular visitor to China during my University Lecture tours and being an avid photographer, I have always been somewhat disappointed with many of the images due to the haze from the pollution in Northern China or the haze from the humidity in Southern China. The “fix” to remove the haze , at least to me, was a complex series of steps in Photoshop. As of the latest releases of Photoshop CC 2015 and Lightroom CC, that “fix” has been reduced to a click thanks to the introduction of the Dehaze filter in both applications. Before you get all excited, be aware this filter is only found in the Camera Raw area of Photoshop CC 2015 and Lightroom CC. If you have an older version of Photoshop or Lightroom you will need to upgrade.

How To Create SVG Images In Adobe Illustrator

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

The beauty of vectors is the fact they are “Device Independent”. By that I mean they are not tied to pixels on the screen and can be scaled with no loss of resolution. With the ubiquity of mobile devices and the rise of “Small is good and fast!” there has been a corresponding growth of the use of SVG files . SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics and is a web format developed by the W3Cthat first appeared in 1998. I first encountered this format in 2000 when Adobe introduced its Macromedia Flash competitor – LiveMotion – at FlashForward. A common question is “How do I create an SVG image?” Essentially the vectors are converted to an XML document andthere are a number of applications such as Inkscape,GoogleDocs Drawings,Sketch3 and Adobe Illustrator. The reason I am using Illustrator is simply because the apps all have similar options and tools. What are some uses for SVG? They can be used for situations such as: Graphics created in a vector drawing appli... Read More

Artboards: Photoshop CC 2015's "Killer" New Feature

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

Pull any group of graphics designers together and ask them what their main “pain point” is when it comes to designing interfaces for mobile apps and they will tell you “Photoshop”. Though this may surprise quite a few people it is quite understandable. There are a variety of smartphone and tablets out there and they all have varying screen sizes. This inevitably results in a few dozen Photoshop .psd files containing multiple layers and a rather convoluted workflow. As of June 16, 2015, that has all vanished. The CC 2015 Photoshop update now sports a spiffy new Artboards feature that is dead simple to use. If you are an Illustrator user, you are quite used to the creation and use of artboards. The new artboards feature of Photoshop works very much like its Illustrator counterpart.

How To Create The Orton Effect in Adobe Photoshop

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jul 1, 2015

The plethora of mobile imaging apps has resulted in the rise of what some are referring to as “Iphoneography”. Though originally centered around Apple’s iPhone the definition has broadened to include Android and Windows Phones.In fact there are a number of web sites dedicated to showcasing great work and techniques. Even though I have written about a few of the apps you can use such as Adobe’s Paintcan, Pixelmator and Aviary, I have always been a firm believer in understanding how the effect is created rather than just simply tapping a button. One really neat effect is the “Orton Effect” which attempts to imitate watercolor paintings by having areas in the image out of focus and the colours somewhat over-saturated. Before we start, a word of caution. Business portraits, technical photos showing machinery  and images meant to have a harsh contrast are not ideal candidates for this technique. Still, it is a lot of fun.

How To Create An Animated GIF in Adobe Photoshop

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 30, 2015

It has always struck me as bit odd, in today’s environment of high bandwidth and ubiquitous devices, that the lowly Animated GIF is undergoing a renaissance of sorts. You see them everywhere: Twitter, Facebook, Web pages, digital magazines and practically anywhere else there is a screen. In fact there are now web sites dedicated to featuring these things. Which leads me to the inevitable question “”How do you create an Animated GIF?” In this How To I am going to show one method and, along the way, point out some important things to keep in mind when you feel the urge to post that cute video of your kitten getting into trouble.

How To Create A Long Shadow In Adobe Illustrator CC 2014

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

Long shadows are a hallmark of the trend to Flat Design on the web which is a reaction to the Skeuomorphic trend that was led by Apple. This trend was common through the use of depth, drop shadows and so on, to imitate objects. We saw it in the stitching around a calendar and the use of “wood” in a bookcase icon in the Mac OS. Flat design, which first appeared when Microsoft released its Zune player in 2006 and migrated to the Windows phone four years later, goes in the opposite direction and is characterized by a minimalist use of simple elements, typography and flat colors. Though there are those who seem to regard Flat Design as a passing trend it can’t be discounted. Especially when Microsoft builds this design standard into it’sMetro interfaceand Apple moves it into both its Mac OS and iOS devices. In this “How To” we are going to create a long shadow for a Twitter button. Let’s get started.

How To Manipulate And Share Images With The New Google Photos

Posted on Jun 22, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

The latest version of Google Photos is quite an interesting update. In fact I reviewed it earlier. Though I talked about using the app on an Android device, there are also iPhone and iPad versions available through the Apple App store. Once you have the app installed an obvious question is:”Gee, can I manipulate and share the images in Google Photo?”  The answer is, “Absolutely. In fact, as you are about to discover, both tasks are dead simple to accomplish.”

The ubiquity of smartphones has resulted in an explosion of selfies, pets, food photos and just about anything else you can think of photographing. The key issue, of course, is where does one store the thousands of photos we each produce? Google, during it’sGoogle I/O conference in late May, was asking the same question and the solution is a new and improved Google Photo service and app. In this “How To” I’ll walk through some of the highlights of the update.
