Digital crafts has a short history of only a couple decades but things change quickly in the craft business. What does that mean for the digital artists and craft designer in 2014.

2. How To Bend Or Curve An Image – Photoshop CS Shear Filter
Recently a friend asked me how to bend an image using Photoshop CS. He had a long, thin border image that he wanted to bend into a curve. There are many ways to do this in Photoshop, but the one that worked best for his needs was to use the Shear Filter. Here is how it was done.

3. Export Photoshop Animation to PNG Sequence
Now we will export our Photoshop animation as a PNG sequence of sprites for a sprite sheet.

4. Moving From Photoshop to Illustrator - Layers
Adobe has done its best to make the two software as similar as possible. In fact, Adobe has work very hard making it easy to move between all of its design software such as InDesign, Photoshop, Flash, After Effects and Premier. Let's compare the Layers panel in Illustrator and Photoshop.

5. Illustrator Spiral Tool
In this tutorial, we will draw a spiral with the Spiral tool in Illustrator. Swirls are very popular in scrapbooking and other paper craft projects. From there we can create several swirl designs by repeating the swirl shape and joining them together into various designs.

6. SnapPages Website Builder and Host Server
To be successful on the web today, you not only need a website but you also need a blog and social networking. One answer to this problem is an all-in-one system like the one you can get at SnapPages.com.

7. Witches Labels - Background Paper
In the next few Photoshop tutorials, we will make three Halloween potion labels, featuring the three witches from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. We will begin, in this tutorial, by creating the background paper design.

8. Adobe Bridge Replaces The File Browser In The Latest Version of Adobe Software - Version CS2
In May 2005, the newest version of Adobe software will hit the market. One of the biggest changes to these upgrades is the replacement of the old File Browser feature with a new stand-alone application called the Adobe Bridge.

9. How To Save A Custom Pattern - Photoshop CS
Patterns are used with several tools in Photoshop CS and the program comes with many preset patterns. But there will be times when you want to create your own pattern for a special project. In Photoshop CS it is easy to define a new pattern and save it to the list in the Pattern Picker.

10. Create A Bookmark With Adobe Photoshop CS2
It´s back to school time and that means lots of books and homework. Why not design some bookmarks to use as an advertising give-away for your business or group. To make a two by eight inch bookmark, all you will need is a photograph of that size or larger and Photoshop CS2.
