  1. There has been a lot of talk regarding highlight and shadows lately. Is there anybody here using that function in PS? Go to Image>Adjustments>Shadows & Highlights>Advanced. I find it a lot more useful than LR or curves/levels. Of course there is a YouTube tutorial from my fast talking teacher😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avr99WgsOKY
  2. This looks really good. Can't wait for it. https://9to5mac.com/2019/10/29/adobe-photoshop-object-selection-tool-sneak/
  3. 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 sligh
  4. I'd like to find out more about enhancing photo's. Not necessarily how to go about learning a photoshop type program, but more along the lines of what types of things you do to make an average photo stand out within the program. I understand the technical side of taking a photo. I even know a few things about processing film, but with digital cameras and no film, seems to me the processing side would be more along the lines of enhancing an image in Photoshop or other like programs. I'm curious to know if there are certain things that an average photographer can do on the processing s
  5. How do I just obtain the Photoshop download on the monthly deal? When I go to the Adobe site all I can see available is the complete package deal at over £20 p.m. I guess I'm looking in the wrong place but if anyone can confirm I can just download Photoshop and provide a link I would appreciate it. Thanks John
  6. How do I save a 27MB NEF file to jpg so it is at least 17MB in Photoshop CC? When I go to save as jpg, it goes to 8 MB and no higher.
  7. Hello, I am new in Photography but have gotten heavily into it. I take photo's daily as much as possible and spend a great deal of time learning how to post process the photo's in Photoshop better and learning the in's and out's of the program. I'm left with a few questions after going through countless other photo's from good photographers. First, I notice their photo's are crystal clear and usually devoid of noise. I've tried using reduce noise to reduce the noise in my photo's, as well as using a small surface blur, and even tried using a second layer with the i
  8. I was under the impression that the Photoshop "Image size" window was a reliable guide to the suitability of the size of my uploading image; however, this appears not to be the case. Moreover, the crucial part of the Alamy Image Manager's error message is unreadable, and won't scroll into view. Please refer to This Dropbox folder for screen shots. As you can see, Photoshop thinks the size would be 19.6M. Alamy's automated QC check obviously thinks differently, but I'm unable to read what it thinks. I've seen talk on this forum of some kind of Alamy image size checker, but I haven't found

  10. After my video "introduction to layers", this one goes much further. Adjustment layers, masks, blending modes, opacity, layer groups and clipping masks https://youtu.be/VSEx34l7Qy0
  11. I have been trying to update to Photoshop 2018. It crashes everytime and even the crash report crashes. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no luck. Anyone else have this issue and find away around it? Jill

  15. Since I upgraded to High Sierra OS 10.13.1 (from OS 10.12), my Photoshop (CS6) crashes whenever I use Nik Collection within CS6. My short research shows that there is an issue of compatibility between Photoshop CC (and earlier releases) & OS 10.13 High Sierra. Please refer to the following link. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-and-macoshighsierra.html Anyone who uses Nik Collection regularly with Photoshop, please do not upgrade your OS until the problem is sorted out between Adobe and Apple. To solve the problem, I decided
  16. New Lightroom video tutorial Cropping, import preset, chromatic aberration, lens distortion, transform upright. I look forward to your comments. Many thanks Preparing images for editing
  17. Photoshop: Just noticed that Photoshop 2018 was installed on my computer... I have the Adobe "photo whatever subscription"... BUT strangely, the previous version (Photoshop CC 2017) wasn't deleted??? Lightroom CC classic: Updated automatically... previous version WAS DELETED... I was asked to upgrade the Library, which I did... seems to be a tad faster? Or just my imagination? (All on a year old pretty descent PC running Windows 10...)
  18. What you think about the usefullness of post processing? I mean, thinking not only about pictures but also video, for stock the best is to provide low contrast (not dull of course), low saturation and low overall sharpness files right? These are the best items to provide to designers and advertisers, do you agree? Then they'll have more space to re-use our files for their purposes. So it seems you should pre-set a very minimal post processing from the initial RAW file and export it. What am i missing?
  19. When preparing images for upload I develop RAW files in LR5.7 and finish them as TIFFs in PS CS2. I prefer to add tags at this stage, rather than when the image has passed QC. I keep a spreadsheet with details of every image with caption, tags etc. In the spreadsheet I separate the tags using commas, and multi-word tags with Quotation marks and commas. When I copy and paste the tags into the "keywords" box in PS CS2, all is well until I "OK" the file properties box to close it. Then PS CS2 instantly removes my quotation marks, and tu
  20. Hi Community ... I am trying to find a photo editing software that is easy to use, produces high quality images, and does not require a monthly user fee (like the newest versions of Photoshop & Lightbox). I know Adobe Photoshop and Lightbox are the industry standard and produce exceptional results, I find them difficult and timely to use, and I do not always get the results I want. I like how easy Microsoft Photo Editor works, even though it is limited, but it compacts the image too much. I am also using an older version of Lightbox 5.7.1 64 bit, but it no longer imports RAW files for newe
  21. A Lightroom CC / Camera raw update is available details here: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2016/12/lightroom-cc-2015-8-now-available.html
  22. So, I have been experimenting with image stacking in photoshop and it has been a tad hit-and-miss. I know that this is used to great effect by macro photographers and I did have a bit of success with this but I hoped to use it more for landscapes and my theory was that it might help get some really sharp details in the foreground in particular. It seems however to be a difficult one to master - the slightest change in sun or shadow and the whole thing gets a bit rubbish. I did find that results imroved by keeping down the number of images to about 3-5 (I started with about 15 per shot and it g
  23. Hi I normally submit stock images but have an image I took yesterday which I want to submit as news. I've been trying since last night to upload it but keep having problems. I've read the guidance on IPTC metadata fields, and have asked alamy for the test image. The data is showing in photoshop, but its not showing when I upload it hence it keeps being rejected. I've been in touch with the news desk and emailed images over to them, and they can't see any data. Nor can I see the fields filled in from their test shot. I've tried entering it in lightroom, exporting as tiff to photoshop,
  24. I put off upgrading to the 2015 version of PS CC for quite awhile. Back in December I caved and upgraded. Having serious performance issues. Sometimes is runs okay, other times I could go and make a cup of coffee by the time it finishes with any adjustment. Seems to be an issue all over the web, tried a bunch of fixes (dropped history to 25, cache up to 2, disabled rulers, disabled generator plugin, no 3D) but none seem to work. And on the homepage where it shows recent images it never updates. Still shows the first images I used when I started the 2015 version. Before I go back to t
