Using Finger Painting

Bandpass Subwoofer Enclosures Specs

The image in the lower-right corner of Figure 14 shows the effect with the Finger Painting check box selected prior to the smudge stroke. The image in the upper-right corner did not have the Finger Painting check box selected. The image in the lower-left corner had the Finger Painting option off, but had the Use All Layers check box selected.

Cleaning up scanned halftones

Photoshop Face Cleaning

Antialiasing an image

Anti Aliasing Filter Photoshop

If you have a particularly jagged image, such as a 256-color GIF file, there's a better way to soften the rough edges than applying the Gaussian Blur filter. The best solution is to antialias the image. How After all, Photoshop doesn't offer an Antialias filter. Well, think about it.
