A new computer program developed by scientists at Princeton University allows graphic artists to produce their own digital brushstrokes using algorithms, quickly and easily. The team created the program, called RealBrush, by combining graphics algorithms with data storage and retrieval techniques. Artists can use RealBrush to create, bend and shape a wide array of brushstrokes. The program includes effects such as smudging, smearing and merging as well. When using RealBrush, artists need to first create a few sample strokes of their own using anything from oil paint to nail polish. The user then photographs the strokes and enters them into the program’s library, which uses the samples as baselines indicating fundamental characteristics of the strokes. RealBrush can use the artist’s samples to warp and blend the original strokes into any curves or forms the user wishes.

Kitty Fisher's insight:

Coming across a great painting program...can take some research. RealBrush created by a team that uses algorithms. By bending and shaping , even smuding and merging. This will give your online painting, a real feel of a traditional canvas.

Watch: Jaw-Dropping Software Makes 3-D Models From Any Photo | Wired Design | Wired.com | Photo Editing Software and Applications | Scoop.it

"Tao Chen hopes that 3-Sweep, an incredible piece of software he created with a team of researchers from Tel Aviv University, can do the same for 3-D objects. And as Chen explains, making the 3-D experts irrelevant was never the point. “Our biggest goal is still to help novice users to do this,” he explains. For the team, led by Daniel Cohen-Or, the biggest challenge wasn’t necessarily working out all the algorithmic magic behind the model-making, but rather giving lay users an easy way to harness it. “It took us some time to figure out how to make a very convenient user interface to generate this stuff,” Chen says.


The video demo is genuinely jaw-dropping stuff. It takes us through a series of photographs, showing how with just a few clicks of the mouse, 3-Sweep can turn the objects inside them into resizable, turnaroundable 3-D models. The first two clicks establish the object’s profile; the third traces its main axis, with the software snapping intelligently to the object along the way, like a more sophisticated version of Photoshop’s magic lasso. The background of the image is filled in with something like Photoshop’s content-aware fill, allowing the object to be turned and repositioned anywhere in its environment. Basic shapes like beer bottles and jars are easy to pull out of their static surroundings, but we see how more complex objects, like water taps and telescopes, can be similarly mapped with just a little more legwork."

Kitty Fisher's insight:

As 3-D keeps making it's way into our lives, the 3-Sweep could be the next move for photographers? Whether or not you feel that this video demo is a bit *cartoonish* but the general idea is that one day 3-D printers will make it easy to turn our digital images into physical ones. As the future becomes more accessible to us, turning a drawing from a 2-D project could be soon an object you can hold in your hand.

Photoshop tutorial: Photo editing in Photoshop CC

Photoshop tutorial: Photo editing in Photoshop CC | Photo Editing Software and Applications | Scoop.it

Learn how to edit a photo using Photoshop CC's new Camera Shake Reduction and Smart Sharpen features and the Camera Raw filter.


In this tutorial we’re going to look at the most important new features and see how they work in practice, starting with the camera shake reduction function. Camera shake occurs because there’s not enough light coming into the camera, for the aperture and shutter speed settings, to record the image before the camera moves.

Kitty Fisher's insight:

We all like to capture those beautiful, sunset or low light photos. But when it comes to the low-light and an unsteady hand. Camera shake happens to us all, and finally Photoshop CC may be able to rescue the image.
