Victoria Pavlov

Victoria was born into a musical family and started practicing music at the age of 3. At age 6 she discovered painting. Victoria spent all of her time in a painting studio to master her craft. At age 14 she had her first big exhibit. She was introduced to the camera by her uncle and to Photoshop by her teacher. Since that time she became “The Photoshop Artist.” A canvas, a camera, a Wacom tablet, and Adobe Photoshop are the clean canvases where she can create her art. One of the biggest passions in her life is using Photoshop.

Q. Is there any way to delete the list of files in the Open Recent list under the File menu? A. Yes, and it’s very easy to do. You can delete your recent files listing by simply going to File>Open Recent>Clear Recent File List.  Q. I tried Perspective Warp but I’m having trouble understanding how to use it correctly.  A. When you take photos of objects that you want to combine with other photos, unless you planned ahead, the perspective will likely be off. Perspective Warp is one of the best tools in Photoshop when you want to match the perspective of a layer against the ba...
