  • I think the spatter brushes are used in this to make watercolour effects.  Key settings are Tight Long and an opacity of about 65%.  You can make out the brush settings in the video.
  • I have an XPS 17 9700 with a 4k display.  I calibrate with X-rite i1 Display pro puck and profiler software.  No problems.  No premier colour.
  • I had my cataracts fixed 8 years ago, including new lenses put in.  Marvellous results.  I use my display at a calibrated 80, maybe 90 at most. Higher brightness settings on my XPS 17 are ...
  • Replied in Corel Painter?
    I use Painter a lot for making photo paintings and think that some of the painterly effects you can get with customised Artists Oils and Sargent brushes  are quite pleasing.  I use version 20 and ...
  • Replied in Landscape Pro
    Up to now I have used Studio 3, Landscape 3 to change skies.  I like both Landscape Pro, studio3 and PS.  PS does a nice job but both are very useable.
  • This treatment works very well.  Lovely colouring.
  • Problem is back now in PS version 20.
  • I retreated to an earlier version of PS, and version 20 of PS shows no problem so it is obviously some incompatibility with the latest version of PS. Just have to hope Adobe fix the problem in a ...
  • Thanks.  Resetting preferences did not help unfortunately.  I see this flashing effect only in Photoshop...not for example, in Corel Painter.  I don't think it's a driver effect. The effect is seen ...
  • ...and now it's happening when I open Photoshop:
  • Created question thread What is this, please?
    In Photoshop (latest version CC), when I select 'save as' the screen flashes momentarily (but long enough to be visible) like this: ...it happens as it transitions from the file image to be saved ...
  • 17" - display of my Dell XPS 17  9700.  Screen calibrated with i1 Display Pro.
  • Thanks.  I did not care for the tired look of ESET and the huge scan times so have moved back to Norton.  Norton even seems to stay where I want it on the desktop now.  That will do me.
  • ...and UK's Which? consumer magazine rates ESET top, and well above Norton.  I like Norton and may reinstall one day.  Maybe next time the Norton 360 icon will stay where it is put.
  • Just to report that the This PC icon now seems to have put down roots in the right place - for reasons I can't fathom. Norton 360 kept moving.  This irritated me so I uninstalled Norton and ...
  • Created question thread Strange Topaz Restyle workspace
    Just loaded Topaz Restyle as a plugin into Photoshop and it has settled incorrectly:. I tried changing some of the parameters in the Photoshop workspace parameters but could not correct the strange ...
  • Sorry you have this problem too.  It had never occurred to me that an update may be the culprit. I hope they fix it soon in another update. It is intrusive.
  • The answer turns out to be that the black shape in the diagram/photo is not solid. It is a plastic tape loop attached to a connection plate. You pull it up and it disconnects the connectors. Memory ...
  • Replied in DesktopOK
    Thanks.  I'll check that out.
