Brightening up a photo


I tried few things but as this photo has too many colors and I am complete beginner in photoshop, I would much appreciate some help.

This photo is going on a website 600x400 and I would need it to look like it was taken in nice and sunny day. I am able to make the sky blue, brighten the grass and the whole pic. Unfortunately, I dont know what to do with the trees. Whatever I tried, they stayed blunt (and if i finally managed to brighten them up, other things were glowing and the picture looked very unnatural). Can someone help me with this please or point me to a nice tutorial

Cheers

Layers Palette Group Sorting Question

If you create a Group in the layers palette and then drag existing layers into the Group, they are placed at the bottom of that Group's stacking order by default. Is there a keyboard combo that will force the layer to be inserted at the TOP of the Group's stacking order instead I tried all the typical key combos to no avail...Thank You!

Magic Wand tool comes up Rectangular Marquee tool

I'm using Photoshop 5.0, and today I'm running into a problem. When I click on the Magic Wand, it sometimes brings up the Rectangular Marquee tool. Or at least the symbol for it. I can't draw a rectangle. I have to close everything down and restart. Sometimes that helps, sometimes not. Needless to say, I'm not getting a lot done.

CS4 Extended - Panels Problem

This happens from time to time. When opening a document in Photoshop the "layers" and "adjustment" panels are automatically collapsed. I've been through every option I can think of to have them expanded when I open a document. I've also tried various workspaces but they all collapse the panels when Photoshop is opened again. Is it possible to corrupt panels in some way

Error message "required resources not found" Argh!

, I'm at my wits end with a sudden Photoshop CS2 error I'm getting on my Mac running OS X Tiger. An error message pops up when I try to do virtually anything in Photoshop, particularly when I mouse over an value-entry field in a pallette, for example the Character pallette which has fields for font size, width, ledding, etc. Could not complete your request because the required resources were not found. Here's the error message I always get: "Could not complete your request because the required resources were not found." Usually when I have an error, I can find someone else on the net who has experienced it, and use their fix. But I have yet to find anyone with this error in any forum. Anyone have a guess as to what I could do to fix it Adobe's site is a mess, so I'm not posting there. But I've already tried trashing prefs, re-installing Photoshop, running Disk Utility, etc. None of the usual tricks are working with this one.

How to alter a part of an image

. I would first off like to thank you for a wonderful forum and for a chance to ask for assistance directly. It always amazes me to see a group of professionals and enthusiasts willing to offer their immense knowledge and their precious time for nothing in return. That is why I am particularly grateful for this forum. Anyway, I am an absolute newbie to Photoshop and pretty much to graphics processing as well, so my question I guess will be an easy one to answer. I have an image whose part I would like to alter. To be more specific, I need to change the Batman sign in the sky to a letter "B". I'm guessing it is done with a selection tool, but that's where my idea ends. What is the easiest way to go about this I have always wondered how this thing is done because it is used to often is today's image processing, but never had to find out the answer myself. Thank you very much in advance.

Selection Brush and Turning the Image

I recently just got Photoshop CS2 and there are some of the simpliest things that I cannot figure out. I use to have Photoshop Elements 4.0 and these things were easy as pie, oh well, hope you can help. On CS2, I cannot find the selection brush tool anywhere! could someone tell me where it is located. Or if there is a better tool that has "replaced it" and does the same thing Also, when I move images into another "box" it isn't giving me the outline of the image where I can easily resize it and turn the image at an angle. Is there something I need to do to make it give me the outline [sorry, I dont know the actual word for what it is called]

Problem Transforming/Feathering

Zero, Do you mean you want to make the whole fireball bigger by x pixels Also, is the fireball the only layer in the document I ask because most images open with the background locked and certain functions won't work on a locked layer. To unlock it, you need to convert the background to a layer. You can do this by double-clicking on the background layer in the layers palette, or by going to Layer-> New-> Layer from Background. Then to enlarge the fireball, Ctrl+Click the layer icon and drag the resultant bounding box to the new size. , No problem Zero, Keep Crunching!

The dredgeful end-of-file...

This has happened to me not once, but three times now. First on a sketch, and back then I didn't know what was wrong. And then it happened to an image I had been working on for more than 9 hours. That's what I call a wasted day. And just now, I found my graphical manuscript for my comic wasted, I mean, what the f*ck! What kind of software is this I thought that for it to be so tremendously popular and widespread, surely, it should protect the work you do at all costs. Some software I know of has functions to protect and recover a file if the system crashes or fails, not f*cking break it down! I can't possibly have a large amount of backup copies of all my work lying about; it will just make me feel irritated because of the lack of structure, not to mention the amount of space it will eat up. It ain't my job ensuring that my work is kept safe despite unexpected events, that's the softwares responsibility. And if it cant handle a simple crash (or, as it may be in this recent one, a power failure of the block in my town) then I dont know how I possibly will be able to work with this software in a real workspace in the future, if the danger of loosing even greater pieces of work than what I have done recently, and by then, I will have much more to worry about than the loss of the file itself. Do I need to say deadline\t Any response from Adobe regarding this I tried to check their site, hell, even make this topic over there, but they seem to run some elitism model where only a selected few are granted to voice what they have to say, bastards.

CS File Browser

I have a question concerning the file browser in CS. I have been using two monitors for some time, having all my tool palettes on one monitor and using the other monitor for photo editing. I would like to have the File Browser on the second monitor with my tool palettes, so I could leave it open all the time. I haven't found a way to move the file browser to the second monitor. I can click and drag the tool palettes from one monitor to the other with the mouse, but when I click in the title bar of the file browser and try to drag it to monitor no. 2, it will only move off the edge of one monitor, and not move over to the next. Anyone have a suggestion of how to move the file browser from monitor one to monitor two Also, CS will not let me drag a photo from monitor one to monitor two. It would be nice to be able to display multiple photos currently open in CS - on either - or on both monitors. Can this be done, if so, how

Getting alpha channel transparency to work

sorry in advance for being a complete noob and asking a question that probably has a very simple answer, but: I'm just getting to grips with photoshop and I'm trying to do something that I could previously do with other image software. I want to 'paint' the transparency of a layer using the alpha channel. So when I paint black on the alpha channel it makes that part of the layer completely transparent, and white makes it completely opaque (and grey shades are in between). From what I understood of the help, this should be possible by just creating an alpha channel and painting in it. But when I try and then click back to display the RGB channel to look at the changes I've made, nothing actually changes. Whatever I seem to do to the alpha channel it doesn't actually affect the layer's transpancy at all. Hope you can help, and like I say it's probably something really simple that I'm missing, but I'm used to just editing the alpha channel and having that instantly update the image with other software. Cheers.

I cant believe its not easy to "CROP" single layer?

I have looked everywhere and it seems I'm either a complete idiot or Photoshop is completely biased to deal8ing with single images and makes anything multiple image extremely complicated\t I'm designing a brochure and I have a background image and some text layers and other layers containing various pictures etc. that I arrange around the brochure etc. I drag my image onto the canvas where I resize to suit my taste, so far so good! Now what if there is a bit of the picture that I want to crop I CANT seem to crop the layer that the picture sits on without removing the rest of the canvas I have seen all kinds of info talking about inverting this, copying, that and deleting the copied, resizing a layer to the pixel dimension etc. etc. etc. blah blah blah!!! WHY cant I just crop the image and have done with it Rather than jumping through hoops! eg, simplest thing in the world to do this in MS publisher or even word I must be thick\t But please help anyway!

Save my Soul PLEASE!

I am working on a picture using Photoshop CS6. It is a round picture and I am trying to to get the text to wrap around the top and then around the bottom. I have the text I want on the top, but I am having a heck of a time trying to get it on the bottom. I am quite new to PS, but I can usually find a tutorial and figure it out without a problem. That is how I did this whole project. There is just one thing I am stumped on. Every tutorial I have found only shows me how to do the text all the way around the circle, and that is not what I want. I want part on top and part on the bottom, but to still go with the flow of the circle. I really hope I am not confusing anybody. I have attached a picture to give you a better idea what I am talking about. See how I have the word "Oceanview" at the top, well now I want to add another word around the bottom. Any step by step help and I would be forever great full. Thank you so much in advance.
