Welcome to PSKiss Product Photography Toolkit step-by-step free tutorial

After you installed and opened the panel in Photoshop, you are ready to start working on your portraits

Working in “Button Mode”

All you need to do once the panel is visible, is to click on buttons. It’s truly that simple.

Each button in the panel launches a filter that allows you to manipulate your photo, quickly and easily. In this tutorial you will learn what each and every filter does.

The work with the panel is progressive – Each filter starts with the results of the previous one. Note that each filter creates a separate layer of it’s own, so the original image stays untouched. This layer has a unique name given by the filter. Please do not change this name, it is used by the very useful Merge All button.

At the bottom of the panel are 4 workflow assistance buttons.
These are explained at the end of this tutorial.
