Photoshop contest

A Photoshop contest, or sometimes Photoshop battle (often abbreviated to PS Battle), is an online game, in which a website or user of an Internet forum will post a starting image — usually a photograph — and ask others to manipulate the image using some kind of graphics editing software, usually Adobe Photoshop, however other editors are commonly allowed, such as Corel Photo-Paint, GIMP, PaintShop Pro, Paint.NET or even Microsoft Paint. People can also use video editing software to create these images, such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Kdenlive, OpenShot, or NCH VideoPad.

While Photoshop is the industry standard image editing program, Adobe Systems, the publisher of Photoshop, discourages use of "Photoshop" to refer to anything other than their photo editing software, to prevent their trademark from becoming generic.

Humor[edit]

A large part of the humor in many of these contests involves the use of internet memes.

Such contests have recently seen increasing participation on many blogs and forums. The popular internet community Reddit has a community called r/photoshopbattles devoted to the contests.

A more "underground" variety of these image manipulation jokes involves the blending of celebrity faces with nude or pornographic images commonly known as fake nudes, often combined with references to movies, music, magazines and other forms of related popular culture.

Photoshop tennis[edit]

Photoshop tennis (also known as Photoshop Pong or Photoshop battle (similar in its function to a "DJ battle" or "rap battle" in hip hop music) is a game played through sequential alternating photoshopping of an image. Photoshop tennis originated in graphics-related internet forums in the late-1990s/early-2000s, and shares an earlier history with online image games such as SITO's "PANIC" (started January, 1994).[1] The game was made popular by art director Jim Coudal in 2001 as "Photoshop Tennis".[2] The matches on coudal.com have since been renamed Layer Tennis,[3] as they are no longer restricted to the use of Adobe Photoshop.

Each match of Photoshop tennis is generally played with two competing players.[2] The players pick a starting image, or one is "served" by a player, then another player makes some sort of alteration to the image in any chosen image editor (matches are not exclusive to Adobe Photoshop). They then send the altered image to the other player or players, usually via e-mail or by posting the image to a Photoshop tennis forum, who then edits that image and sends it back to the first player. This process goes back and forth until a predetermined number of rounds have elapsed, or the players otherwise wish to end the game. When the final round is over, there may be an independent judge who determines who has played the best shots, and declares that person the winner, or players may play without a clear winner. Sometimes extra rules can be enforced, such as sticking to one particular software package, or keeping to a particular theme.

Goodby, Silverstein & Partners built a competition around social media to promote Adobe's Creative Suite 3. "Layer Tennis" challenged creative professionals to create a piece of art and pass it to a competitor, who would modify it and send it back - 10 volleys total in a virtual stadium. A commentator provided play-by-play, explaining which Adobe features were used, while the audience posted comments and voted for a winner in each match. Interactive banners promoted Adobe's "Creative License" theme. The contest, promoted entirely through word-of-mouth, drew more than half a million viewers over the course of the "season." The revenue jump year-over-year in the third quarter was 36 percent ahead of where CS2 had been at the same point in its sales cycle.

Interactive Banner Ad from Adobe

layer_tennis1_thumb.jpg

I interacted with a banner ad today, and actually enjoyed it. Adobe’s Creative License campaign is currently on display at Coudal Partners’ Layer Tennis page and is a clever bit of unobtrusive and playful banner advertising - I’m shocked to even write that sentence.

layer_tennis2_thumb.jpg

It’s a good integration of the message and a decent pun, but it’s also a sweetly made tiny little interactive experience. Basically the slider reveals more or less ‘crazy creative stuff’ with a little audio. I must have slid the slider back and forh, oh, at least four or five times and I even clicked on it to go an visit the predictably over-glossy microsite, which I soon bored of.

If that sounds like it isn’t much of a triumph, have a think about the last banner that engaged you. I can’t think of any. It’s nice to see people thinking a bit more creatively (appropriately for the brand) about these things.

How to Mask a Subject in Photoshop Using the Subject Select Tool

The ability to create masks in Photoshop is one of the core features that allow for layer-based photo editing.

In this tutorial, we're going to show you how to use the Select Subject tool to create a mask in Photoshop. We'll also show you a trick to create a more complicated mask. Let's get started!

Where to Find the Select Subject Tool

To access the Select Subject tool in Photoshop, go to Select > Subject at the top of the menu bar.

You can also access it if you're already using the Object Selection, Quick Selection, or Magic Wand tools. With these tools active, you will see Subject Select and Select and Mask as options at the top.

Getting Familiar With the Layout

Before we dive into the fun part, let's have a look at the tools, modes, features, and settings that will come in handy when you're creating masks.

When you enter masking mode after choosing Select and Mask, there are three menus to work with. The one on the left contains the selection and navigation tools.

They include the Quick Selection tool, Refine Edge Tool Brush, Brush tool, Object Selection tool, Lasso tool, Hand tool,and Zoom tool. Each of these has a specific application and works in tandem with the other menus.

The Properties Panel

The properties panel is where the localized and global adjustments are located. Most of these features are located on the left under Properties. There are two options on the top bar as well, namely Select Subject and Refine Hair.

View Mode

In View Mode, you determine the best view for creating your mask. There are preview options such as Show Edge, Show Original, Real-Time Refinement, and High Quality Preview. The color and opacity can also be adjusted here.

Refine Mode

In Refine Mode, there are two options: Color Aware and Object Aware. Either one can be used to refine your mask.

Edge Detection

Edge Detection tells Photoshop how to process the edges around the masked subject. For example, you can extend the edge by turning the slider to 250 pixels. Checking the Smart Radius box tells Photoshop to shape the edge according to the precise contours of the subject.

Global Refinements

Global Refinements may be needed for some masks and not at all for others. The four sliders include Smooth, Feather, Contrast, and Shift Edge. There are two additional options to Clear Selection or to Invert the mask.

Output Settings

The Output Settings are important because it determines how the new mask is applied to your image. Your options are Layer Mask, New Layer, New Layer along with Layer Mask, New Document, and New Document along with Layer Mask. There is also a box option to Decontaminate Colors.

How to Create a Mask With Select Subject

For this example, we're going to mask a tennis ball. You can download the image from Pexels if you'd like to follow along.

Masking a round tennis ball may seem like an easy task at first glance. But most tennis balls aren't perfectly round. Plus, they have bits of protruding fuzz. This makes it near-impossible to create a realistic-looking mask in just one click.

Let's look at how the Select Subject tool will help us mask this tennis ball:

  1. With the image loaded in Photoshop, press Ctrl + J twice to create two layer copies.
  2. Select Layer 1 in the middle of the layer stack. Go to Select > Subject.
  3. A selection will be made around the tennis ball. Click on Select and Mask.
  4. In the Properties panel, choose the red overlay from the View Mode.
  5. Go to Output To at the bottom and select Layer Mask from the dropdown menu. Click OK.
  6. Select Layer 1 Copy at the top of the layer stack. Go to Select > Subject.
  7. With the selection of the tennis ball made, click on Select and Mask at the top.
  8. Enter the following values in the Properties menu on the right: Radius - 1 and check the Smart Redius box, Smooth - 19, Feather - 24.4, Contrast - 8, Shift Edge - +2, and check Output To Layer Mask. Press OK.

We now have two layer masks sitting on top of the original image. The Layer 1 Copy represents Photoshop's automatic selection using the Subject Select feature. The top layer represents the custom values we've entered to create the best possible selection of the tennis ball.

Inspect the Layer Masks

In order to inspect each layer mask, uncheck any layers underneath the one you're looking at. We're going to examine the Layer 1 Copy. Uncheck both layers underneath to see the mask.

Layer 1 Copy Mask:

Notice how we've created a soft selection here, where a little bit of the fuzz appears. It's not what the tennis ball looks like in the original image, but we'll fix that later.

Next, let's inspect Layer 1 by unchecking the Layer 1 Copy above and checking Layer 1 as shown below.

Layer 1 Mask:

This mask was selected by Photoshop. Notice the edges around the tennis ball are dark, solid, and jagged? This copy is also far from perfect. But we'll show you how to combine these masks to reap the best of both for the final mask.

Refine the Layer Masks

Now, we're going to take the best of both layer masks to create the perfect mask for the tennis ball. We're also going to create a solid black adjustment layer to replicate the black background of the original image, adjust the opacity, and perform a simple trick to perfect the final result.

Follow these steps:

  1. Create a Solid Color adjustment by clicking on the adjustments icon at the bottom right of the screen.
  2. Change the color to blackby dragging the circle down to the bottom-right corner of the box as shown below. All the values should be at 0. Then click OK.
  3. Select and drag the Color Fill 1 layer down belowLayer 1.
  4. Change the Layer 1 Opacity to 50.
  5. Now for the trick; activate the Layer 1 Copy and press Ctrl + J three times.

Notice how some of the fuzz re-appears? We now have a more natural-looking tennis ball. This is because duplicating a layer will double the effect and create a more accurate mask.

Masking Made Easy With Subject Select Tool

Photoshop is always improving its selection and masking tools. It's now easier and quicker than ever to create more refined masks.

Give this tutorial a shot; you'll be amazed at the detailed results you can get with the Subject Select tool.

A hush falls over the small crowd of spectators. Minutes tick slowly by. Suddenly, adobe layer tennis, a player volleys. The announcer cries out, "Rush has ditched his first direction and turned around with a colored filter, practically obliterating the layers underneath."

Welcome to Photoshop tennis, an online contest in which the players are Web designers, a Photoshop document is the ball, and a send button is the racquet.

Courtside seats are available to anyone who logs on during a live match, and instant replays are always available.

The rules of the game are simple.

In Photoshop tennis, two designers send an image document back and forth, adding one layer for each turn.

The document is posted to a website in real time, accompanied by announcer commentary.

The match ends pretty much whenever the designers decide they've had enough. Sometimes it's hours later, at which point "audience members" vote on a winner.

Photoshop works using a system of layers -- background, foreground and innumerable layers in between, each containing a different element of the image.

The prize?

It's a great way to show off your chops," said its inventor Jim Coudal, founder of Coudal Partners, a Chicago advertising and design agency.

Coudal, who describes the game as an "international, cooperative, quasi-competitive, independent thing," came up with the idea this summer on a slow Friday afternoon while he and an online pal "whacked a file back and forth" to kill time.

Soon after, Coudal was contacting designers he knew and respected to adobe layer tennis in official matches.

With four test matches and four official matches completed, Coudal's site now gets around 1,000 visitors a day, mostly folks from ad agencies and design shops, according to server logs.

Designers are now contacting him, wanting to know how they too can play.

"We get amazing comments from people," Coudal says. "It's only four weeks old, but people are already convinced on what is the right and wrong way to play it."

Like many other sporting events, Photoshop tennis was postponed following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the East Coast. The next game is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 28.

Voters, he says, prefer a back-and-forth that tells some sort of story versus, say, adobe layer tennis, a match that delves into more high-minded explorations of typography or color.

Easier said than done.

"It was fun, but it was also hard and frustrating," said designer Michael Schmidt about a recent match, which he won. adobe layer tennis sitting there waiting for someone to fuck up your graphics. Someone is pulling a design in one direction, and somebody else is trying to pull it in another direction. He can take something you've worked on for two hours and he can kill it in a spate of two seconds."

Competition is abundant in the design field, where critical recognition is important resume fodder.

But in the competition for jobs, designers are not fighting an opponent so much as hoping what they've done is better than everybody else's.

Photoshop tennis gives designers a truly new experience -- the chance to kick butt in real time.

"It is about winning, hampton tornados football the opponent forfeit the game," explains Schmidt, who runs his own design website, k10k. "It's cool in that we have nothing like that. When we have websites, we're all very supportive of each other."

If the game contains any meta-message, to use design parlance, it is a tribute to Adobe Photoshop's market saturation. The software has 4 million users worldwide, according to the company.

"It doesn't seem like there's any software as ubiquitous as Photoshop," said designer Rosecrans Baldwin, who has announced several matches. "People never adobe layer tennis consider that there are other tools for graphic design out there."

The software's worldwide popularity means that designers from around the globe can communicate, visually, using a common language.

"I think the larger issue is that the separation of physical and geopolitical space between like-minded individuals is getting less and less all the time," said Coudal, adobe layer tennis. "Games like this allow relationships in this odd modern online environment to grow."
