In this video from Phlearn, Aaron Nace walks through how to place a logo behind a person in Photoshop. The process is pretty straightforward but can vary in the level of complexity depending on how detailed the background is. You’ll need to select the subject from the background using something like the magic wand or the pen tool. Then, you’ll create a layer mask for your logo or text layer from the selection. At that point, you’ll be able to place your logo partially behind the subject. Check out the full video above for the complete walkthrough.
Amazon dropped the price on the Nikon D750 from $1996.95 down to $1696.95. This is the “ships from and sold by Amazon.com” offer. It’s still $1996 everywhere else.
This does not appear to be a gray market or refurbished item. It is listed as new and with a full Nikon USA warranty.
The price drop has caused the D750 to drop from a bestselling rank of 400-500 down to the top 80 in the Camera & Photo department. Not sure how long this will last but if you want a deal on the D750, you should jump on this one. Check it out here at Amazon.com.
Tamron has announced the SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro lens for the Sony A-Mount. It offers a max 1:1 magnification, Tamron’s USD AF motor and full-time manual focus.
We knew the lens would be coming when Tamron announced the Canon and Nikon versions earlier this year. The new Sony version differs from the Canon and Nikon models only by the absence of built-in Vibration Compensation due to sensor-based image stabilization in Sony A-mount bodies. The Sony version carries the same $649 price tag though.
The new Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro should ship next week and is available for pre-order here at B&H Photo.
