After the digiFilm Y35 fiasco, one would think that nobody would ever buy anything from Yashica. However, the company doesn’t seem to give up and it recently launched three new cameras and two films on Kickstarter. And it seems that photographers are willing to give Yashica a second chance – the project has already been funded, 18 days before the campaign is over.

As if the digiFilm’s epic fail wasn’t enough, Yashica is now launching its own 35mm film. Yes, that Yashica, the company that trashed the iconic Japanese brand’s name by launching a plastic piece of junk version of the Electro 35.
The new 35mm film has been promoted on Yashica’s Facebook page, and it’s bad from the very start. The bad Photoshop job of the promo image shows that it could be just another scam, which has provoked a fierce reaction in the community.
Swedish-born Instagram star Johanna Emma Olsson recently posted photos from her glamorous trip to Paris, posing in front of some iconic locations. But it didn’t take long for her followers to figure out that something is fishy. At a closer look, it’s easy to see that the photos are fake. So, the Instagrammer got bashed by her fans and of course, the whole case got viral.
We’ve seen plenty of Photoshop fails in promotional posters or magazines (and this is my absolute favorite). The latest fail has been spotted in promotional pictures for The Apprentice, where fans noticed that some contestants look like they have three hands. Of course, people were quick to joke about it on social media. But BBC claims that it’s not a Photoshop fail, but that a “lightning illusion” is to blame.
Photoshop is a complex program, so it’s “normal” to have minor bugs and small issues. But, while minor bugs are usually forgiven, deleting files, even on rare occasions, is not something that should ever happen
We’ve found a somewhat rare occasion that can delete your file – and this is not a minor issue, this is a horrible fail.
Photoshopping female bodies has been a question of many debates. Getty Images, one of the largest stock photo agencies in the world, has just changed their rules concerning this issue.
According to their new rules, along with the submission of the images, you’ll also need to declare whether the model’s body size and shape have been digitally manipulated or not. If they have, you shouldn’t submit the images.
The new Tom Raider movie with Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft is coming next year. The trailer is out, and so is the official poster. However, Vikander’s neck looks so long in the poster that it seems to provoke more comments than the actual movie. And on Twitter, it’s slowly turning into a meme.
Photoshop version 3.0 was the version that introduced me to Photoshop. It came out at the end of 1994, and I discovered it the following year while in college. I had no idea what I wanted to do with it at the time, but it was still amazing. I’d never seen anything like it, and I wanted to learn all about what it was and what it could do.
I saw an image scroll up my Facebook feed today that Adobe posted way back in 2013. It was the picture below, with the note that the version of Photoshop CC available at the time would require 733 floppy discs. Today it would probably be closer to 2,000. But how does Photoshop 3.0 stack up against its future selves?
It can take a while to figure out what does and doesn’t work in Photoshop for new photographers. We’ve all been there. We’ve discovered some new tool or technique, and we go overboard. We think it looks amazing, we start doing it to every image, but we’re really doing ourselves more harm than good. In the long run, it’s all part of the learning experience, but the sooner we figure this stuff out, the sooner we can move on.
This video from YouTube channel Photoshop Tutorials, highlights five of the most common Photoshop mistakes photographers make. I’m not sure I entirely agree with the first one. I do in part, though. Why do something with a dozen layers if one will do? Aside from anything else, it’s wasted time. Sometimes, you really do need 100+ layers, though (but, please, learn to group them).
With so much information in the world, sometimes it can be hard for newcomers to sift through the noise when they want to learn how to use Photoshop. For me, I started by purchasing the software. I tried to work out what each tool did, then realised I was getting nowhere…although I did manage to somehow to put together this monstrosity of an image. This is one of the first manipulated images I created, beautiful isn’t it? A work of art that should be hung in the louvre (sniggers).
