1 WK 4: RENDERING FABRICS WITH ADOBE PHOTOSHOP by Su-Jeong Hwang Shin, Ph.D., Assist. Professor 1. Introduction: Adobe Photoshop 1.1 Vector vs. Raster 1) Vector image drawing Drawing or illustration Creates vector images based on mathematically defined curves and lines Disadvantages: Not well suited for editing or creating realistic images Advantages: No jaggies Fonts are better Higher quality output, can be save as a bitmap file. Easy manipulate objects freely. Usage: Flats, motifs or logos Vendors: CorelDraw, Adobe illustrator Adobe illustration (.ai)/ CorelDraw (.cdr)/ EPS, PICT, WMF 2) Raster based programs Image editing program (paint) Raster or bitmap or realistic images based on pixels Disadvantages: Can not create crisp, bold, smooth graphics Usages: Photographs and realistic images Vendors: Corel-Photo, Adobe-photoshop Save file: Adobe (.psd), TIFF, BMP, PCS, JPEG, and GIF

2 1.2 Create New and Color Mode 1) Go to File-> New. And type the following information. 2) To create a new palette (swatches). Go to Window-> Swatch (or Color). Select view preference of Small Thumbnail.

3 Double clicking on a color chip, you can name the color chip. To remove colors for the palette, select Alt key. (A scissor will appear). Then, click. To add colors, select as the foreground color and place the mouse over the blank area of the palette (A bucket will appear). Then, click. To load palettes and swatch, select Load in the palette window by using the right-hand options arrow. To save a new palette, select Save in the palette window by using the right-hand option arrow. 4) Create layers (Layer 1, Layer 2). Fill colors, blue in layer 1 and yellow in layer 2 (use Paint bucket tool). Select layer 2 and adjust opacity 50%. To fill colors, use a paint tool like the following picture or, go to Edit-> Fill. 5) Matching color for design and printout. Various Color modes: Pantone develops color matching inks for the printing and textile industry. CMYK: Cyan, magenta, yellow, black RGB: Red, green, blue. Indexed color: Usually 256 colors. Lab Color: Three channel mode, which can be known for WYSIWYG. WYSIWYG??? What You See What You ll Get? Go to View-> Proof set up-> Working CMYK. Go back to select View-> Proof colors. You can see RGB mode as CMYK mode.

4 2. Edit Colors and Ton 2.1 Edit color with the Selection tools: Magic wand, Tolerance, Anti-aliased, Contiguous Areas of color can be selected with the Magic Wand tool with the following setting options: Tolerance- When it is increased it will select more color like the original selected area. Contiguous- When selected, this will select only the continuous area of like color. So, if the need is to select the same color in the overall design, then this option should NOT be selected. Anti-Aliased- As usual, this option is NOT to be selected. Because it will create halos of color when the selections are done. 1) Open the file YOUR Fabric scanned. (Photoshop Text p.108, Technique #1) 2) Use Magic Wand tool. Tolerance 25, Check Anti-alias and Sample all layers. 3) Select yellow area. Go to Select menu->similar. 4) Go to Edit menu-> Fill. Contents Use: Color or pattern.

5 2.2 Edit Color (by changing color mode) 1) Open the file Goodie_1->Exercise->Artsvill->JN20033LH 2) To change Color Mode, go to Image menu-> Mode-> Indexed color.

Go to History and Delete Indexed Color. You will have the original file (RGB mode).

6 2.3 Color Reduction of a Scanned image (Adobe Photoshop Text p ): When an image is a scanned into the computer, the scanner sees more color than is there. It sees the overlap of printed colors, where colors mix, shadows of colors from fabric texture. 8 or 12 color print is almost 200 colors in the scan. Therefore, it is necessary to reduce the colors 1) To do color reduction, go to the Filter menu-> Blur-> Gaussian Blur (Adobe Photoshop Text p.104) Change the Radius pixels. This is useful technique for correcting the scanned fabric. 2) Create a new levels adjustment layer. Choose Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels and click OK. Adjust numbers in the image histogram. It displays the relative number of pixels in the Shadows (left part of the histogram), Mid tones (middle), and highlights (right). When finished up, click OK. Close the file.

7 2.4 Color Reduction for scanned flats Open ANY Flat from your previous worksheets. To do color reducing to black and white line, go to Image menu-> Mode-> Grayscale. Go back to Image menu-> Mode-> Bitmap. Choose Output 150 pixels per inch, Method use 50% Threshold. This will make only black and white. This is useful technique for scanned flats or drawing. 3. Rendering Basic fabrics 3.1 Add the weave structure or effect (Adobe Photoshop Text p. 266) (Worksheet 3-1) 1) File-> New Name: Worksheet 3-1 solid color fabric (5x5 inch, Resolution 72, Color mode RGB color). Fill any color (use Paint bucket). 2) In another window, File->Open file (Goodie->Fabric_S-> Plainwea). Go to Select menu-> All (Ctrl+A) Go to Edit menu-> Define Pattern (Name: PlainWeave)

8 3) Go back to the previous window (Worksheet 3-1). Create new layer 1. While you select layer 1, go to Edit-> Fill pattern (PlainWeave) 4) Select black color on the weave (use Magic Wand tool). Pick a color (darker then background color). Fill color with Paint Bucket. 5) Wool effect. Go to Filter menu ->Add Noise. Go back to Filter menu-> Blur. 6) Right mouse click on Layer. Layer Flatten. Then, File-> Save
