Download a Tim Flach Droplet | Practical Photoshop
Tim Flach is known for his extraordinary work photographing animals, taking them out of their natural habitat and shooting them in his studio. The resulting work is conceptually abstract and Photoshop is a big part of his workflow.
In this interview with the Adobe Photoshop blog, he describes how he works, what his favourite tools are and how using Photoshop helps him to create his distinctive style.
Speaking of the latest version of Photoshop, he says that his favourite new tools are the Content Aware Fill, which he describes as “extraordinary” and the Puppet Warp tool which he uses for fine adjustment. Aside from that, his favourite “traditional” tool is the Dodge tool, but he says he is careful not to over-process his images so that they remain authentic.
Another useful feature for Tim is the Droplet feature, which allows you to convert Photoshop Actions into “Droplets” which can be saved to the desktop. Put simply, this allows you to drag an image, or series of images, onto a droplet icon and a series of predetermined actions will be carried out on an image.
The folks at the Adobe blog have provided a download of Tim Flach’s 6-inch print droplet so you can see how it works. Have you created any droplets? Let us know in the comments box below how you use yours!
