Most of our videos are specific to our software, but some of them also cover Photoshop tips. Here are a few of our videos that cover Photoshop techniques.

This tutorial shows how to make and run a batch action in Photoshop.


The video below shows how to edit your images non-destructively using duplicate layers or smart objects.


This one uses Photoshop Extended to edit a video file.


This one shows how to use the color gradient editor found in some Eye Candy filters such as Gradient Glow and Fire. Photoshop’s gradient editor works the same way.


Lastly, this video contains shortcut keys and navigation tips for zooming and panning around the preview image. The majority of these techniques work in Photoshop too.

    If I upgrade to Blow Up 3 from Blow Up 2 do I need to uninstall Blow Up 2 before installing Blow Up 3?

      Hi Greg,

      No you don’t have to uninstall your version of Blow Up 2 in order to install the new version. Both versions will be available in the file>automate menu as well as in the filter menu in Photoshop.
