Photoshop Tutorials: How to Replace Colors in Photoshop

In this tutorial I will be showing you how to quickly and easily replace colors in Photoshop. This is a great alternative to using a Hue/Saturation Adjustment or Adjustment Layer that doesn't require the use of a Layer Mask. We will do this by using the Replace Color feature in Photoshop. This adjustment can be applied to the same image multiple times so you can change as many colors as you like in your images.

Communicating with Typography
 
10:51
The typeface we choose can often help or hurt our message. Yes, all type communicates, but the font or 'appearance' of those words can have deep meaning and evoke certain feelings from the viewer. In this lesson we will discuss the differences between styles of fonts, kerning vs linespacing, and using type as a metaphor or words that look like their meaning. This will be especially helpful for people interested in learning some tips about layout and logo design as we look at several ways to use typography to communicate.
