When you're ready to improve your Adobe Photoshop skills, try one of these features to make your images magical. We'll start with what to do when your scratch disk is full, and then go straight to tips on getting started in content-aware fill, clipping mask, brushes, and vignettes.
The Photoshop scratch disc is full
Photoshop uses the scratch disk to store its temporary files, e.g. B. the work and history files. When your scratch disk is full, save your file and restart Photoshop. The scratch disk will be erased when you exit the program.
The default scratch disk is the C: drive. Adobe does not recommend using the operating system drive for your scratch disk unless it is the only available drive. To select a different drive for the scratch disk:
. To edit or change the scratch disk, select Edit > Settings > Scratch Disks .
Since C: is the standard scratch disk drive, it is listed first and checked in the Active column. If you have multiple drives, they will also be listed but not checked.
Note: Do not use external drives or network drives for your scratch disk.
2. Select the check boxes for the additional drives you want to use for scratch discs.
3. Next, highlight the C: drive and use the up and down arrows on the right side of this window to move the C: drive down and rearrange the order of the additional drives.
4. Then click OK and restart Photoshop.
Using content-conscious Photoshop fill
Use content-conscious fill to remove an object from an image and fill that area with the surrounding pixels.
It's like magic, but works best with images that are fairly simple. Photos with lots of objects and details may require additional post-processing.
In our photo of two ducks swimming in a pond, for example, I would remove one of the ducks as follows:
1. Use the lasso to select the gray duck at the top of the picture.
2. Next, choose Edit> Fill.
3. In the Fill dialog box, choose Content Aware from the Content drop-down list.
Select the blending mode from the drop-down list. The default is normal. However, experiment with the other 26 options to get the best results.
4. Select the percentage of opacity and click OK.
Photoshop removes the selected object and the surrounding pixels of the pond water fill up in the deleted area.
How to create a clipping mask in Photoshop
A clipping mask is basically a stencil with an image behind it. Despite the fact that some tutorials make it seem so difficult, it's a simple four-step process in Photoshop.
