Photoshop - A few questions :)



The Boosh!

First of all im not expecting to be fed data as I want to learn how to use this programme myself, by the means of trial and error!

After getting PS I have been following this website:
http://www.melissaclifton.com/tutorials.html

To learn a few things on PS.

I jumped in at the deep end and I am currently trying to make some pop art/vector images out of this:

Basically I was wandering if any of you PS'ers out of there can recommend any sites that help with arty stuff like the above, as the guide I have got on the above site is a bit... vague!
Also any links to useful sites for tips (i'd like to learn how to change the colour of cars/CC etc) would be much appreciated

Finally - Where can i find some High Resolution images? I'v figured out that these work better and cant seem to find any on google etc.

Thanks and sorry for the long post :)

can someone quickly explain how to fill an area with a certain colour, because when im selecting an area and clicking a colour and the fill "paint bucket" icon tool its not filling the whole area its just like, following the persons face. i want the area one colour
 
Its because its not all one colour. You can either use that selection to fill on a different layer or adjust the tolerance which will let you fill more in.
 
boosha...told you the boy has skills ;)
from the looks of it... seems like its alot of patience with the polygonal lasso tool

you can patiently use the magic wand by clicking everywhere you want to cover with the selection aslong as you hold down the shift key everytime you press a new area. give it a go, im about to post how to fill an area in a particular colour too.

pen tool rules all!! bit more advanced than simple lasso but you can get much neater, rounded edges when selecting bits of an image like a face! trying to follow the curvature of that birds cheek bones and forehead with just the lasso is mental when you compare it to how easy it can be with the pen!!

go to image, adjustments, hue and saturation

you then get the following box which allows you to adjust, hue saturation and lightness. It's important to tick the colourize box soyou don't get a solid colour.

ahhh right! and this can be used to change the colour of peoples wheels aswell? i was just selecting a section, altering the opacity of the "fill" tool and filling in the section lol

^ if you make your selection a 'New Layer' and fill it with either a colour (100% opacity) of even just a copy of the original selection you can alter the Layer Effects in the layers palette and get some pretty cool effects! have a play around with the other effects from the 'Image' and 'Filters' drop down menus.

Dead easy for a beginner mate and some of the stuff you can get from just using these looks pretty awesome!! blagged my way through A-Level Graphic Design using that lot haha got me an A aswell ....suckers!!

You didnt know and thats what learning is all about. It's cool. There are so many ways to achieve great results.

Just remember, image, ajdustments and then chose what you want to do, you can play with contrast, shadows/highlights, hue and saturation.

Before you know it you will be colour coding, lowering and tinting. lol
