    Latest newsletter Tip of the week

    Really enjoyed the latest Lightroom Queen newsletter, Victoria. Especially liked the Tip of the week. Thought I might add that for landscape photographers, it is usually in the sky area of our images that shows up the dust bunnies the most. And having to pan up and down as shown in your tip...

    Help saving TIFFs & JPGs in PS CC 2014

    Having a few issues saving files in PS CC 2014 First when saving JPGs, I prefer qualty @10 But PS CC 2014 in its wisdom keeps offering '9' each time I go to save a JPG. With TIFFs, it keeps insisting I save TIFFs with Byte Order set to Macintosh, when I prefer IBM PC. Can't for the life of...

    Question re: Keywording

    When I first started using Lightroom, I entered keywords with no hierarchy. For example, I had flower, flowers and pansies as three separate keywords in a 'flat' list A few months back, after reading a number of posts in this forum about keywords and the benefits of using hierarchical lists, I...

    PS CC 2014 ands plug-ins- Heads-up

    FWIW, Once I had a working PS CC 2014, I found out I had no plug-ins. Checking on the Adobe forums, it was suggested that we needed to copy the contents of the Plug-in Folders from PS CC to the plug-in Folder in PS CC 2014. This worked fine (so far) with Google's NIK plugs-ins and Topaz. It...

    Auto-mask brush in PS CC

    In Lightroom, we have the ability to use adjustment brushes with what is called Auto-mask. So if we were to apply an adjustment on a sky, the adjustment would not be applied to say a roof top. In PS CC, when we edit a layer mask, we painted with a brush to either hide or reveal something from...

    Suggestions for a Photoshp CC support forum

    I am one of the many who took Adobe up on their PhotoShop CC & Lightroom for $9.99/month (prices slightly higher in Canada) subscription offer. I have PS CS4, but to be honest, I only did the odd thing in it - mostly cloning. What I would like to find is a decent support forum, something like...

    Affordable printer with colour management.

    I don't print often. I do occasionally print note cards / greeting cards. I have in the past few months moved to calibrating my monitor and using colour management in my image processing. I have used commercial Lab printer profiles for some recent prints (5x7 & 12x18) Will probably do so again...

    Wasn't sure where to post this, so apologize in advance if this is not the place. Just needed to say that I am extremely happy with the fix Adobe did to the healing brush in the final release.

    Question re: resolution in Plug-in edits

    Using LR5.2 RC with both NIK & onOne Perfect Photo Suite plug-ins. When we send an image out to the plug in, LR asks a number of questions such as file type (PSD, TIFF, etc), Colour space (ProPhotoRGB, Adobe RGB 1998), etc) and Resolution. I shoot with an old Canon 5D. Images are 4368x2912 as...

    I have very little experience with printing. While I have taken thousands of images, and even sold a fair number online via sites like RedBubble, I've not really printed any of these images myself.

    Default Sort order issue

    Is there a preference somewhere I'm overlooking that I need to set so LR5 stops changing the sort order on me? When editing images, the edited image gets thrown to the end of the film strip. So I switch back to the Library module and change the sort order to Capture time. Works fine for a...
