    Filter to find photos with Brush Adjustments

    Just a quick question: I was wondering if there is any way possible to make a Smart Collection of photos, that use either a particular Adjustment Brush adjustment, or at least any photo that uses said adjustment? Or, probably the same thing, a way to filter out photos that use said adjustment?

    Dealing with Smoke

    Quick question. I was at a reunion last night and shot a bunch of candids, some of which were done when the locale decided to pour smoke into the area. I shoot using RAW, so there'll be some playroom, but would I be correct in thinking: The Contrast, Blacks & Clarity sliders are what I sould...

    Completely off-topic: help me identify this texture

    I was doing some graphics for my brother-in-law's band, and kind of got stuck at the logo. They had a graphic against a bright white background, but nobody has the original layered file, or where to get it. I managed to cut out and restore it reasonably respectably, but what I'd LIKE to do, is...

    PSD Templates as TIF?

    I have several PSD Templates for Flyers, most of which came as a PSD file in CMYK mode. I was just wondering if anyone knows of any disadvantages of saving them as TIF, would doing so lose any of the info from the PSD format, color information or otherwise hinder customizing them?
