    Select - Focus Area of image

    Yes. The "Focus Area" feature only selects areas of an image that are in focus, thereby leaving the un-focused areas to be masked. You would have to experiment with the settings.

    Old PSD layers (large files) not compatible with photoshop CC

    Hello. I've also never had to deal with this error. I did some searches, and I cant find any feedback on "these layer files are not compatible with new version of photoshop". Are you sure this is how the error reads? It actually reads "layers" or "layer files"? Could it have read, "Could not...

    Specific How to duplicate a Topaz 'Flux' effect

    Hello and welcome to PSG! What makes you feel that Topaz Labs will stop supporting the software and it's effects? It could take many hours of intense experimentation in order to figure out how to even come close the the Topaz effect. The Oil Paint filter, Gaussian Blur, and a Dry Brush Filter...

    Remove black spots from copper statue

    Here's a quick example. Just quickly laid down a base with the Brush Tool after cleaning up the area with the Healing Brush Tool. Some of the solid areas I just had to paint over.

    Remove black spots from copper statue

    Hey. As usual there may be many ways to accomplish this in Ps. Typically used color overlays will be difficult because the statue is not one consistent color I would probably start by making a selection of the outside boundary of the entire statue. The I would pick out small areas and do the...

    Moving a folder in organizer

    Yes could be Adobe Bridge. It helps when the correct names or terminology is used. Better still is a screenshot if they're not familiar with the names or terms. Makes it easier to offer help.

    Printing Question

    Well.......not really. You can use an action to recreate guides to a specific document size. As of Ps 2014, there is a new guide layout option under the "View" menu. You can set up your guides and then save them as a preset, which you can then load into a new document. You can use a...

    Printing Question

    You can. Just adjust the size in the original PSD file, print, adjust to the next size, print...........and so on. If you need to keep the original file size, back up or convert back to original size. Having the extra files is not a big problem. You would of course name them appropriately, place...

I tend to have more editing options and control over the printed outcome doing it in this...
