The Open command and double-clicking aren’t the only ways to get images into Photoshop. Learn new ways to more efficiently open images in Photoshop, individually or several at once, and directly from other applications such as Adobe Lightroom, Apple Photos, and Adobe Bridge instead of having to export and import through the desktop every time. Add new tricks to your toolbox, become more efficient, and open up new creative possibilities.
You’ve come back from a trip, and you’ve loaded your travel photos from your memory cards onto your computer. What next? Adobe Community Professionals Melissa Piccone, Jesús Ramirez, Theresa Jackson and I walk through some of our favorite Photoshop and Lightroom tips for travel photos. My segment, which is about creating panoramas in Photoshop and Lightroom, starts about 30 minutes into the recording. But it’s worth watching all four presenters.
Watch the show, originally streamed live on March 16, 2017:
Note: Watching the recording requires the Adobe Connect web browser add-in, which is available on Macs and Windows PCs but not on all desktop and mobile platforms. (My understanding is that when an Adobe Connect presentation is live, you can watch it on any devices listed in the Adobe Connect system requirements.)
Some new displays use a color space called P3, which is different than the sRGB and Adobe RGB color spaces that designers and photographers have used for years. Is P3 an improvement, or a complication? I answer that question in an article I wrote for CreativePro.
That article refines the observations about P3 displays that I originally explored in an earlier article on this blog, A look at the P3 color gamut of the iMac display (Retina, Late 2015). I wrote the earlier article when Apple first starting shipping P3 display built into the Late 2015 iMac. Today, Apple includes P3 displays in their top-of-the-line iMacs, MacBook Pros, iPhones, and iPad Pros.
iziExport is an Adobe InDesign plug-in by Revolumedia that makes it easier to convert InDesign documents to WordPress posts, so it’s an intriguing option if you’re interested in converting some of your InDesign documents for publication on a WordPress-based web site. I reviewed iziExport for InDesign Magazine (November 2016).
In an article I wrote for CreativePro, you’ll learn some simple strategies to help you get a great answer more quickly in the Adobe Forums — a free community-based resource for questions about Adobe software such as Photoshop and InDesign. Many forum members use Adobe software in production every day, so they can have useful insights and are sometimes aware of problems before they’re officially documented by Adobe. I’ve participated in the Adobe Forums for many years, and am now an Adobe Community Professional there.
