Unsuspecting People Get a Live Photoshopped Surprise

Adobe Creative Day - Man in Bottle image

By Charlie White from Mashable.com:

Take a look at the priceless reactions of these people who are secretly photographed while waiting for a bus, and then Photoshopped into amusing positions and implied relationships. It’s part of a “street retouch” stunt by Adobe, featuring quick-draw Photoshop master Erik Johansson.

We especially liked the way people’s “street faces” turned to soft smiles and delight as soon as they realized what was going on.

This Photoshop trick, reminding us of both Candid Camera and Mission: Impossible, took place in Stockholm, Sweden as part of a promotion for Adobe Creative Days, to be presented live online beginning June 11.

Once you learn the basics of Photoshop, you can put together convincing composites rather quickly. This is a great demo of that, albeit done by an accomplished Photoshop magician.

Adobe’s goal here was obviously to highlight Photoshop’s magic, but if its stellar PR people are trying to convince me of the tremendous power of Photoshop — which I think is the best piece of software ever written — they’re preaching to the choir.

Which one of these Photoshop-enhanced scenarios was your favorite?

So after the extremely amazing reception that I received off you guys with these wireframes it’s time that I say thanks for all the love. The amount of people that requested the psd [Photoshop file] was surprising and overwhelming and as I promised you can download them here.

I’d like to hear what what you guys think of them and getting some feedback of how to improve them would be awesome. It would also be cool to see what you guys do with them. You can catch me on twitter for this as well.

Terms are obvious, don’t sell, rent in existing or modified form – attribution isn’t necessary but would be much appreciated.

Very useful: Corporate Identity Photoshop Layout Mockups

Layout with corporate identity collateral

From BluGraphic.com:

BluGraphic’s free PSD file for today is a corporate or brand identity mock up for designers to present their identity design in a modern and pretty way for their clients or for presentation in their portfolios.

Every designer should have designed a corporate identity at some point in his career. In fact brand identity building is an essential part of design. Every company, agency, firm, TV channel, soccer team and even freelancers need a logo and a corporate identity. These identities usually consist of letterheads, business cards, envelopes, CD cover, CD box, bag, pen, pencil, calendar and more.

This mockup is totally made with Photoshop and not based on any real photo. This provide many advantages over photo mockups. For example, since this is vector based and build with vector shapes, this makes it resizable without quality loss. Where on the contrary it is impossible to scale a photo without losing quality. Moreover, since these shapes are vector shapes, you can change the proportions of the elements to fit your designed identity. For instance, if your business card is taller and thinner, you can easily edit the business card in the mockup to make it the same size.

To apply your design on this mockup template, simply grab your file as a jpeg image, place it over the corresponding item then change the blend mode to multiply instead of normal. That’s it !
