    Updates; 2 ver; how do I clear one?

    When I get a Ps upgrade prompts Ps appears on the like twice. One for v 20 the other for v 21. I'm confused by this, How can I have 2 ver of Ps? I've looked in Program files 86/Adobe and see no PS files. I've looked in Program files/Adobe. In that folder has Ps 2020 AND Ps 2019. Should I...

    Stop test resize when sizing box

    Thanks for your response. I know that option but I've never checked it. But as I told John after I rebooted my computer things returned to normal. I know, Weird.

    Stop test resize when sizing box

    Hi John, Thanks for your response, do I recognize you from the Lr forum? I'm not sure I follow you on this. The term "point text" confuses me and I don't recall a "paragraph Text" option. But it doesn't matter because everything is behaving normally again. Appears to be one of those things...

    Stop test resize when sizing box

    I did not enter the "free Transform" tool, which I am familiar with, and because I didn't activate the tool when I activated the "Text" tool I am confused by the fact that the text window is behaving as though I had clicked on the "free transform" tool. I tried clicking off the text layer, into...

    Stop test resize when sizing box

    Lately I've been frustrated with what appears to be a new feature in Ps. When I finish creating text and want to change the layout, all text in the box changes as I change its shape. This is new, it's never been a problem before and I can't figure out how to revert it back to "normal" where the...

    Distribute images from layers onto a grid of a larger format poster

    I just finished the project and the Script made it happen. I was able to run several trials, creating wide masks and dividing them into portrait segments. I finally landed on 7, that got all the images onto the page in neat rows. Loading the images was so easy and I was able to adjust each on...

    Distribute images from layers onto a grid of a larger format poster

    I just added a grid with 1-inch squares. That makes create masks on the fly much easier.

    Distribute images from layers onto a grid of a larger format poster

    Hi Paul, Having a great time with this script! It's is making the layout really easy! And it makes being creative easy! It would be nice if I could change the dimensions of my masks in the Properties palette but I can't seem to figure out who to deactivate the chain.

    Distribute images from layers onto a grid of a larger format poster

    Here is the poster file I'm trying to sort out. The images are all too small; my client wanted that size, he also wanted that poster size, so obviously, the images must be way bigger. They are all the same width but some are taller than others, and the tower shots are off size on both sides...

    Distribute images from layers onto a grid of a larger format poster

    Hi Paul, Everything installed and I have the Action palette in Button Mode. I added a document, then loaded it with 32 images. Then I selected one of the images and clicked "Create Mask" but I get "You need to have made a selection". What am I supposed to select?

    Distribute images from layers onto a grid of a larger format poster

    Sure, I'd be happy to, but don't expect much in the way of photography. The images I am commissioned to organize onto a poster are the work of a very amateur photographer friend and most of his photos don't deserve the light of day! Some are downright awful, but he refused to allow me to cull...

    Thanks, I thought that was the case, but I wanted to be sure.
