Workflow Week (4): Refinements

Now it’s time to work on the image a bit in Photoshop. In this stage we are going to use CC Libraries to add a layer style to the text, and also show how easy it is to manage/move /copy content between libraries, before using the Camera Raw Filter to quickly—and nondestructively—make powerful adjustments to the image.

A note

The only reason for the pasted text in this part, was to show the capabilities of adding layer styles to a library and being able to apply them with one click, so if that seems a little awkward and not my usual style of doing things, you’d be right—but I was just so keen to show off this feature as it’s a massive time-saver.

Workflow Week (2): Photoshop Mix and Comp CC

In the video, the wrong logo asset is used in the bottom-right corner (working too hard at the weekends)—I’m sure you get the idea, though.

Workflow Week (1): Desktop to CC Libraries

Every day this week, there will be a post that forms a five-part mini-series showing a Creative Cloud workflow. A few weeks back, we had a post that looked at a workflow starting in Comp; this series builds on that and gives a lot more detail as there is a video with every step, and it also looks at stakeholder approval as a part of the workflow.

Because it’s Monday, we’ll keep the first one short—this post looks at adding a couple of things from Illustrator and Photoshop to a CC library, as part of a project that will be developed over the rest of the week.
