In my last post, I talked about masks in After Effects, specifically the new motion tracking feature for rigid masks. In this post, I’m again focusing on video composition, but instead of compositing using masks, I’m going to talk about keying. Keying is a technique for selectively removing areas of a video based on content [...]
For whatever reason, I thought that if you merged two Lightroom catalogs you would lose the History states from the images that you had made adjustments to in the Develop module. But it turns out that you don’t! So, when I work on location with a location catalog and make change to my images in […]

However, with that deal you had to be a previous owner of Photoshop CS3, CS4, CS5 or CS6. Unfortunately this […]

In this episode of The Complete Picture (Adobe Camera Raw as a Smart Filter in Photoshop CC), Julieanne demonstrates how to take multiple exposures and combine them into a single 32-bit HDR file that can then be edited nondestructively using Adobe Camera Raw as a Smart Filter in Photoshop. In addition, you’ll discover how powerful […]
I like to think of After Effects as an animated version of Photoshop – many of the same general techniques apply: selection, masks, blend modes etc… The primary difference being that the content changes over time when working with video. In general, masks work exactly the same as they do in Photoshop – you use [...]

There are two choices in the Image Sizing area of the Workflow Options in Camera Raw 8.2 that I didn’t understand the difference between: Width and Height and Dimensions. Well, thanks to Eric Chan, now I know! • Width & Height: One would use this option to resize using both the image width and height. […]
Last week I had the opportunity to present an incredibly fun topic to the DC/MD/VA Creative Professionals user group… GoPro Cameras, Quadcopters, and Adobe Creative Cloud. Thanks to everyone who attended. This topic is a personal interest of mine, and I had a great time. There were great questions and great conversations all around. For [...]
After visiting quite a few agencies and talking to some freelancers in various countries, I have noticed that it is quite difficult for you all to keep up with what is regularly coming to your Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. Here’s a new mailing list.
One of the benefits of capturing Raw files and processing them in Lightroom is that I can easily create derivatives of those files as needed. For example, if I need to send some files to a publication as PSD files or if I want to post some of the images to my blog as JPEG […]
The Move tool has an option (on the Options bar) to “Show Transform Controls”. Checking this option displays a bounding box around the selected layer(s). Not only does this help to show which layers are selected but can also be used to quickly transform an object without having to select the Free Transform command (by […]
With the Move tool selected, Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) -dragging a layer in the image area creates a copy of the selected layer(s). You can also Option (Mac) / Alt (Win) -drag in the Layers panel to duplicate a layer – select the layer(s) and drag (up or down) until yo see a heavy […]
I travel with an iPhone, and iPad, a Jambox, a Nike FuelBand, etc. All of these devices charge via USB and all of course came with their own chargers. Rather than bring all those separate chargers with me I tend to look for multiple port USB charges that I can plug into one AC […]
