Adobe Photoshop Hacks

There are many ways you can edit a photo using Adobe Photoshop, thanks to its many tools and features. Here are some Adobe Photoshop hacks every user needs to know for easier photo editing:

How to Quickly Whiten Teeth

According to PetaPixel, what you have to do first in order to quickly whiten someone's teeth in a photo is go to Layer, then click New Adjustment Layer, followed by Vibrance, and reduce it to -60. 

Once that's done, select the Vibrance layer and then the layer mask. Look for the Properties Panel, select Invert. After that, select the Brush tool and set the Opacity to 50% on the control bar. 

All that is left for you to do is paint over the set of teeth that you are planning to whiten. 

How to Create Black and White Photos

Creating black and white photos using Adobe Photoshop is actually a pretty straightforward process. To do it, what you will need is the Channel Mixer adjustment layer. 

Go to Layer, then click New Adjustment Layer, followed by Channel Mixer. Do not forget to tick Monochrome before playing around with the red, blue, and green sliders to get your desired black and white effect. 

How to Automatically Remove Objects

Removing unwanted objects automatically in photos can be done, but you will need 15 shots of the same view, according to an article by Hongkiat. According to the article, "With your camera on a tripod, take 15 shots of the same view, spaced 10 seconds from each other."

Once you're on Photoshop, click File, followed by Scripts, and then Statistics. Remember to choose Median before selecting the files of the 15 shots you have taken. 

Per the article, Photoshop will actually identify what is different in each of the photos and then remove it on its own. 

How to Duplicate Anything

One of the simplest Adobe Photoshop hacks out there, what you have to do to duplicate objects, layers, and many more is to select and drag while holding down the Alt/Opt key.
