👋 Oi, mga repapips, Brian Dys here! I love music, photography, and creative stuff like UX design and art. This is a place where I collect my thoughts and works. Apart all these, I’m Jaycelle’s better half and Bryce’s dad. 🥰
Jaycelle partnered with Nature’s Apothecary to promote their Tea Starter Kit. They’ve got nice visual design on the box, leaflet, and on the tea containers too.
Jaycelle requested me to change the color of her blouse from red to mustard. It’s easy with an app, that’s true. However, before all those algorithms and automations, there was a semi-manual way of doing it — using selective colors in Photoshop.

Got a scanned or photographed signature with a messy background? Here’s an easy way of enhancing it to be in PNG with a transparent background.
In Adobe Photoshop:
- Resize the long side of the image to 1920px or higher
- Image → Adjustments → Threshold
- Select black-only via Alpha Channel
- Make BG transparent and save as PNG

Recently, a family member renewed a passport. The design is reminiscent of the one-hundered peso bill with its purplish color and “entched” illustration style. I like it.
