    Re: Photoshop Tips and Tricks

    Best advice, learn the short cuts.

    One is how to make your brush smaller or bigger - on a mac, hold down ctrl + alt and drag your mouse (brush) right or left.

    A website I have found extremely helpful in learning how to use Photoshop has been Photoshop Tutorials | Photoshop Essentials

    Lots of tutorials with real-world examples showing how you might put various techniques into use in a real world situation.

    Re: Photoshop Tips and Tricks

    OK all you Photoshop Gurus. I'm so new to really using Photoshop, and photography in general. However, occasional I shot some pretty good shots, in my opinion, but the problem is when I go to have them printed in 8 x10, or 11 x 14, the full shot is chopped. I have tried to re-size in Photoshop, but I either distort the picture or crop out some of the shot. Isn't there and easy way of resizing without distorting? Is there a setting on my Nikon d5100 to change the size to where I don't have this problem?

    The short answer is no. You have two choices that you can do to fix it. One is to print in sizes that don't crop the picture. The other is to shoot leaving room to crop without losing anything of importance.

    Re: Photoshop Tips and Tricks

    As Don said, print in the right ratios for digital prints. 4x6, 8x12, 16x24 etc. Other wise you need to set up your image in Photoshop to fit inside a 5x7, 8x10 frame with lots of room on each side. If I print on 5x7 or 8x10 I make a new Photoshop PSD window and size it to either 5x7 or 8x10 inches and set DPI to 300.

    I open the image I want and drag it into the new window. I then size it within the frame borders of the pre-sized window and leave room for borders and matting.

    Re: Photoshop Tips and Tricks

    Does anyone have a problem with the liquify filter crashing in photoshop CC creative cloud? If so, has anyone found a solution. Even happens if I try to use it on the tiniest selection, the dialogue box opens, then crashes CS6 CC

    Cheers
