The other day I was watching a PS video tutorial and suddenly noticed that when an adjustment layer (curve, level, or solid fill, etc) is added, also a white mask is added to the layer automatically. So I checked my PS (CS6) but it wasn’t the case. To double check, I looked at my PS CS6 reference book (Martin Evening), the illustrations also showed white masks with adjustment layers. I must have turned something off inadvertently. I looked through menus and preferences etc and searched it on the internet to correct it but no success. Could anyone please tell me how I can have it back? I use masks a lot so this automatic addition of layer masks will be a time saver in the long run. Sung
So glad I discovered this. I've been told by many in the forum to check my photos for sharpness at 200% on a Retina Display screen and have been doing so for some years now on my MacBook Pro when I am out and not able to use my iMac which has a regular screen, since the Retina Display screen makes everything appear so sharp. No more! I was toodling around on Adobe's site and came across this method for making the display on your Retina Screen emulate a regular screen in Photoshop, which means I get a better sense of how sharp an image really is, whether I may want to downsize slightly, and what any noise may actually look like. It also makes me more comfortable that I haven't oversharpeded my RAW photos when I view them this way. I thought this might be helpful for others who rely on their laptops while traveling. I still use 200% to check for dust. http://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2013/01/viewing-photoshop-cs6-in-low-resolution-on-a-retina-display.html Read the first paragraph - the rest tells you how to download the correct version, etc if you have problems. I'm sure most of you are familiar with Julianne Kost, but for any photo newbies or those who just want to keep up with what's new in Photoshop and Lightroom and keep improving their skills, I highly recommend Julianne Kost's blogs and tutorials. I've taken classes with her at PhotoExpo and read her stuff/watch her videos a lot. Great way to learn & keep my skills sharp. There is so much you can do in Photoshop and Lightroom, that there is always something new to learn. If you have other tips for checking sharpness, feel free to add them to this discussion.
Hi Does PS CS6 still crash when you use NIK plugins with High Sierra? I am aware that my question is not going to be of any interest to most people, but I am certain that amongst some of the regular people in the forum, NIK collection is a important part of their workflow. Therefore any recent experience in this matter will be valuable to me. It is inevitable that I will have to upgrade to High Sierra at some point so I want to be prepared. I don't use NIK Collection all the time but I use it in certain circumstances. Someone suggested me that I can run two operating systems (with a partition). It sounds fairly easy and a good idea. But how practical & easy is it to jump between two operating systems? For example, you work on an image in PS with High Sierra and reopen it in PS with Sierra in order to put it through NIK Collection, then bring it back to High Sierra? Is it fairly simple straight forward? Or is it very cumbersome process? Any advice or experience will be very much appreciated. Many thanks Sung
