  • The best way I've found to do this is with hair/fur brushes. Cut our the main subject slightly inside the edge, with a slightly soft line. Then, on a separate layer, set your clone tool to a ...
  • I smell a rat. There are several there that are called "real", but were clearly post processed for saturation, contrast, etc. Very likely with Photoshop. It seems the test calls only images that ...
  • Wow! That means thousands of "retouchers" and millions of images are not "proper." Probably downright ugly.
  • Just make sure you buy one that can be returned. A very old thread here indicated the failure rate was about 70%, meaning 70% who try a drawing tablet for Photoshop/LR work give up and return to ...
  • Created discussion thread Color Management anyone?
    Somebody loan these guys a profiler.
  • How about "Snapshots" in ACR? Seems like the same as LR virtual copies to me. Results are saved in the one "master" XMP file. I use snapshots all the time to keep track of different options, but ...
  • Lightroom uses an "embedded" version of ACR. So, sorry, you're stuck with the old version from the time you bought LR. Bridge and Photoshop use an external version (8bi file), so you can sometimes ...
  • Thanks, got it.
  • Created discussion thread How to kill view finder preview?
    I'm shooting a lot of dogs at play in the park, fast moving subjects. Using servo plus tracking focus on the EOS R is working well, about 80% in focus. But I'm bothered by the preview that appears ...
  • Same here under new Photoshop. Similar action works fine. Don't have CS6 to test. Can you be more specific on what error you get? What do you mean by "hangs". What is the state of the document you ...
  • You misunderstood. The keyboards on the Surface Pro died, not the Dell. Most of the time I used it as an E-book reader and browser, so I flipped the keyboard back, out of the way and just used the ...
  • Thanks to all for the replies. You helped me understand and advance my learning. FYI - the table below shows another round of testing. This time with my most compute intensive items, the Topaz AI ...
  • Created discussion thread Laptop faster than desktop?
    I got a new laptop for Photoshopping when traveling. I did some performance testing and I am surprised that the laptop is faster than the desktop on several key functions. That does not make sense ...
  • The yellow circle on the mouse arrow is a function of his screen recording program. Don't know which one he uses, but most screen recorders have such a feature to make it easier for the viewer to ...
  • After I got the latest Photoshop/Bridge/ACR updates installed, plugins fixed, etc., I decided it was time to delete older versions. I used the Creative Cloud app instead of Windows to uninstall ...
  • Created discussion thread Topaz AI system disk bloat.
    While chasing down some bloat on my Windows 10 system I discovered some significant duplication of Topaz AI plugins. On my system drive I had two separate Topaz Program folders. One was named ...
  • After 15 years of this question it's hard to believe people still suggest using Actions. Use the Image Processor. That's what it was designed for. Google it or Youtube it. Even simpler and faster ...
  • No problems here in 2 days on Windows 10 ver 1903. Don't notice it slower or faster. I see a few reports by people who can't find it to install in Creative Cloud, but no reports of slowness or ...
  • I've not tried it, but the Adobe DNG Profile Editor lets you push values all around on a color wheel. Maybe that would work to create a color swapping dcp. However, there are other tried and true ...
  • Updated yesterday, ran a few tests. Verdict = still a big step back from the old "original" version. Painting the "tri=map" is no better or worse, but the first compute is still much worse than the ...
