You’ve got a folder full of images and you need to run some production chores on them, like converting formats or applying noise reduction. How can you quickly tell which images need work? In an article I wrote for CreativePro.com, I talk about how the filtering features in Adobe Bridge and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom can save you lots of production time by helping you quickly target files you need to work on, and tracking your progress.
Your portfolio should not just be about publishing and sharing, but should also support the goals of your creative career. In my latest article for CreativePro.com, I help you sort through the numerous options for creating a home for your photography online, including free social media sites, template-based fine art portfolio sites, and professional sales-oriented sites.
Digitizing an archive of film images can be a time-consuming process. In my latest article for CreativePro.com, I tell you how to use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (or Adobe Camera Raw with Adobe Bridge) to accelerate importing, editing, and organizing incoming film scans. You’ll get through hundreds of scans much faster and more efficiently than editing each image individually in Photoshop.
Photographers are taught to use the histogram to evaluate images, but it has shortcomings that limit its usefulness when editing. In my latest article for CreativePro.com I show you tools and techniques in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw, and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom that are better than the histogram for finding tone and color problems such as clipping and midtone contrast. You’ll be able to more effectively find out exactly where the problems are in your photos, so you can craft better-looking images more quickly.
To update Photoshop directly, start Photoshop CS6 and choose Help > Updates.
To download a manual installer for perpetual licenses: Download the update from the Adobe Product Updates page and install it manually. You can’t update a Creative Cloud license from this page, so only the 13.0.4 update for perpetual licenses is available.
To update an Adobe Creative Cloud license: Start Adobe Application Manager, and in the list of Creative Cloud software you have installed, click the word Update next to any of the applications with updates. Clicking Update for Photoshop CS6 will bring Photoshop up to version 13.1.2. Or, to run all available application updates at once, click Updates in the left column and then click Update All.
