You Suck at Photoshop – Vanishing Point

November 4, 2019

DONNIE: My name is Donnie, and
you suck at Photoshop. But that’s OK, something
wonderful is about to happen to you. Let’s make an image. Let’s make a happy image. Let’s make an image that says
we’re finished with failed marriages and relationships,
false friends, career disintegrations. Six-week long hole-ups in a
house that, while legally leased to your ex-wife, should
by common law belong to you, but will ultimately likely
result in a County Sheriff SWAT team invasion. A happy image that says
it’s time to move on. Let’s open up Bridge and
find that image. SWAT LEADER: Donnie Hoyle. DONNIE: Here’s a great one. This is an image of a
train heading off to a special place. SWAT LEADER: Donnie Hoyle. DONNIE: Let’s make enough room
on this train for all of our friends to come with us
to this special place. We’re going to use a tool
called Vanishing Point. Go to Filter, Vanishing Point. SWAT LEADER: Donnie Hoyle, you
are currently in violation of State of Kentucky
penal codes– DONNIE: The initial tool is the
four corners perspective plane tool. SWAT LEADER: –484J and
499C, among others. DONNIE: We’ll follow
the natural line that the track has. SWAT LEADER: This is your last
chance to resolve this situation peacefully. DONNIE: And we’ll make it go
all the way up the front of the train and back down to
the end of the train. Then we can grab each corner and
make sure that they’re in the right place to accurately
portray the perspective angle of our train as it heads
off into the distance. And let’s pull this end off
into that distance. This is going to allow us to
create more train cars at the end of our train. FEMALE SPEAKER: Donnie. DONNIE: Grab the Selection tool,
click and drag inside– FEMALE SPEAKER: Donnie! DONNIE: Where the
train cars meet. FEMALE SPEAKER: Donnie! Donnie! DONNIE: Option Command Click
to copy and drag, and it’ll follow right along that
perspective plane. Line it up to make an extra car,
and you can even make a second one if you want. SWAT LEADER: Please exit the
building with your hands in plain sight immediately. DONNIE: When we’re done,
we’ve extended our train into the distance. SWAT LEADER: Donnie, before
the negotiator– DONNIE: Now that we think about
it, maybe we don’t want to take everyone with
us on this ride. SWAT LEADER: AR15 can– DONNIE: Let’s, let’s just take
the train ourselves. SWAT LEADER: –sharpshooter. DONNIE: And Select All
and transform with the Transform tool. Now we want to grab the center
point and put it right into the distance where the train’s
going to head. And then we’ll Shift Option
Click as we make the train move down the track
towards the light. Towards a, a special place. SWAT LEADER: OK, boys, hit it! [POUNDING] DONNIE: Not an end. [POUNDING] DONNIE: A beginning. [CRASH] SWAT LEADER: Go go go go go! [INTERPOSING VOICES] MALE SPEAKER: Where’d he go?

    What's your problem? I came here for a PS tutorial on Vanishing point not a philosophical speech with a surreal ending.

    Lol um..No.

    Do you know what this series is about? Watch the whole thing to understand.

  • Reply AppleAssassin June 9, 2012 at 10:02 am

    Yes it is lol

  • Reply ʎnƃ uʍop ǝpısdn June 9, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Depends on what you're using it for. Games = Fraps. Other = Cam Studio.

  • Reply ʎnƃ uʍop ǝpısdn June 9, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    That's the fucking Swat team, dumbass.

    You Suck At English.

  • Reply AppleAssassin June 9, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    He's asking about recording the desktop. Not games lol

    Camtasia is a MUCH better recorder than Cam Studio, with higher quality and better compression. It also has a built in studio for editing.

  • Reply ʎnƃ uʍop ǝpısdn June 9, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    That's all good for you, but I've tried all of them and I just prefer Fraps/Cam Studio. And how do you know what he wants to record?

  • Reply AppleAssassin June 9, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    Because he's asking what he used to film his screen….This isn't a game video, it's a photoshop tutorial

  • Reply ʎnƃ uʍop ǝpısdn June 9, 2012 at 9:01 pm

    Just because he asked what he used to record doesn't mean he's going to use it for the same reason.

  • Reply AppleAssassin June 9, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    If he was asking what to use to record games he would have asked that

  • Reply ʎnƃ uʍop ǝpısdn June 9, 2012 at 9:05 pm

    But Donnie doesn't record games, so why would he ask that?

  • Reply AppleAssassin June 9, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    Exactly 🙂 So why would you even suggest fraps?

  • Reply ʎnƃ uʍop ǝpısdn June 10, 2012 at 12:53 am

    I said Donnie didn't, I said nothing about TheBlueJonas.
