Work smart with Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator

TIP OF THE WEEK: 
“How I use Smart Objects and Smart Filters in Adobe Photoshop”

Deutsche Version siehe unten!

In 3 simple steps!
1. Open your Adobe Illustrator document with a simple Icon, Illustration or Logo.
2. Copy your Object and place it as Smart Object into your Photoshop file.
3. Click OK to confirm the placement. In the Layers you’ll find the Smart Object as a small icon. By clicking on the small icon, the original file opens again in Illustrator which means: both files are linked with each other.

Or I simply select in Photoshop under Filter > the command CONVERT FOR SMART FILTERS before adding any Filter effects. With this method I can modify the filters as desired and work non-destructive.

TIPP DER WOCHE: 
“Wie ich mit Smart Objekten und -Filtern in Adobe Photoshop arbeite” 

In 3 einfachen Schritten!
1. Öffne dein Adobe Illustrator Dokument mit einem einfachen Icon, Illustration oder Logo.
2. Kopiere dein Object and platziere es als Smart Objekt in deine Photoshop Datei.
3. Klicke auf OK um es zu bestätigen. In deinen Ebenen findest du nun dein Logo als Smart-Objekt. Wenn du auf dieses Smart-Objekt-Icon klickst, öffnet sich dein Original wieder in Illustrator, d.h. die beiden Dateien sind miteinander verknüpft.

Oder: Ich gehe direkt in Photoshop unter Filter und wähle den Befehl > KONVERTIEREN ZU SMART FILTER – bevor ich Filtereffekte anwende. Damit kann ich jegliche Filter jederzeit verändern und arbeite nicht-destruktiv.

THE MOCK UP WORLD

Deutsche Version siehe unten!

How cool is that! Many years I spent time in Photoshop putting my designed CD Covers, websites, books etc. together for presentations to show it to clients… even though I’m teaching Photoshop since years it took me hours to make it look professional.

By accident I’ve found this link online:
MOCK UP WORLD

Since I’m working with MOCK UP world templates, it takes only minutes to present a new product to a client!

I’ve downloaded a few mock-ups for free to try out. At the moment, they offer a “freebie-package” since they would like to find new subscribers.
FREE MOCK UPS

1. I open their Mock-up file in Adobe Photoshop
2. I click on the Smart-Object on the layer “Replace me”
3. A new file opens, where I can place my own design
4. I hit the safe button once I’m happy; right after that, my own design gets applied into the Mock-up PSD document.
Now you are free to send an jpg per e-mail to a client, or place a Tiff into Indesign for printing.
HAVE FUN with Mock-up World!

Deutsche Version:

Eine super Sache! Viele Jahre habe ich verbracht in Photoshop meine Bücher, CD Covers, Webseiten und Broschüren mühsam für Präsentationen “zusammen-zu-stiefeln”… und trotz allen Photoshop Kenntnissen, sah das Resultat doch nicht so professionell aus…

Per Zufall habe ich dann online diesen Link entdeckt:
MOCK UP WORLD

Seit ich Mockup World gefunden habe, ist es eine schnelle Sache für mich ein neues Produkt meinen Kunden vorzustellen!

Um es mal auszuprobieren habe ich mir ein paar gratis Mock-ups heruntergeladen. Im Moment gibt es sogar ein Freebie-packet da sie neue Subscribers finden wollen.
GRATIS MOCK UPS

1. ich öffne die Mock-up Datei in Adobe Photoshop
2. ich klicke auf das Smart-Objekt auf der Ebene “Replace me”
3. eine neue Datei öffnet sich, worin ich mein eigenes Design einfügen kann
4. wenn ich zufrieden bin, speichere ich; denn damit wird mein eigenes Design ins Mock-up PSD übernommen.
Dann steht es mir frei entweder ein jpg per e-mail an meinen Kunden zu schicken, oder ein Tiff ins Indesign einzufügen und auszudrucken.
VIEL SPASS mit Mock-up World!
