Thanks, +laurent Laurent!  It is possible to use this image on a website, but there may be a fee. What website, and how do you intend to use it?

Gang, I just caught wind that French Kiss Collections is having a 50% Off Flash Sale this Saturday and Sunday (April 16 & 17). Leslie doesn't have sales of this magnitude very often, so if you're looking to pick up any of her spectacular collections, now is the time. Here's a link: https://frenchkisscollections.refersion.com/c/1ff4

Since several people compared my recently shared Erik Johansson photo composite to an M.C. Escher drawing, I thought it would be fun to share an M.C. Escher-esque HDR photo of mine that I captured with a fisheye lens in the University of Colorado's Macky Auditorium.

In today’s Photoshop Workbench tutorial, we’ll take a graphic of the American flag and map it so realistically to a models’s face that it looks virtually identical to face paint.

Moody, evocative lighting adds ambiance to everything it illuminates.  In today’s Photoshop Workbench tutorial, we’ll create a glowing, light bulb effect.  As we play,  we’ll discover the power and flexibility of working with a custom brush, toy around with light in a variety of creative ways, add cinematic lens flares, and even make one of the bulbs appear as though its shorting out and throwing off sparks.  Thanks to the brilliance of Photoshop’s layers styles, we’ll also fashion a 3-dimensional appearance for our text without using any actual 3D tools.  Wow!

Dear Valued MSJPhotography Members,

Please read the important announcement below about changes to your MSJPhotography membership…

In case you missed my early April announcement or haven’t had a chance to pop by my site lately, I’m closing the educational side of MSJPhotography on May 31.  April 30 is the final day to sign up for a 1-month MSJPhotography membership.  Everyone who registers for a membership in April will have access to site content through May 31.  
To wind things down smoothly, I will manually cancel all members' subscriptions on May 1 and no further payments will be drawn from your account.  When this happens, you will receive an email indicating that your membership has been cancelled.  If you signed up for a membership in April, please be aware that you will still be able to log in and have full access to the site through May 31.  Both Dave and I will continue to produce high-quality content right up to the end.

If you’d like to have continued access to all 527 Photoshop Workbench tutorials, be sure to order copies of the Photoshop Workbench on DVD (http://www.msjphotography.com/index.php/dvds/) before May 31.  All Workbench DVDs and everything else in my Store (http://www.msjphotography.com/index.php/store/) is 25% off until it vanishes on May 31.  Just enter the code THANKU25 at checkout.

I’m also taking discounted pre-orders for Photoshop Workbench Volume 8 through May 31 (http://www.msjphotography.com/index.php/photoshop-workbench-volume-eight-episodes-501-527-bonus-tutorials-dvd/).  This product will not ship until the second week of June.

As I step down, David Marx will be burning the Lightroom educational torch brighter than ever.  You can find him and all of his enlightening Lightroom tutorials beginning May 31 on his new site (http://www.focusphotoschool.com/msjphotography/).

Wishing you continued creative inspiration!

Mark

I’ve been watching tutorials on Corey Barker’s marvelous Photoshop Master FX site (http://coreybarker.squarespace.com/) and recently completed this dramatic ship at sea composite based on one of his lessons.  I love how Corey shares such remarkable creative techniques that result in brilliant images.

In today’s Photoshop Workbench tutorial, we’re going to explore a quick, easy, and delightfully fun method for popping almost any subject from a photo, resulting in a clever 3-dimensional effect.  Best of all, no actual 3D tools or skills are required to achieve this look!
