    Vertical Guides

    I use vertical guides and Transform -> Skew constantly when editing real estate images. Recently when I need to pull an additional guide it takes me out of transform as soon as I click on the ruler, my macbook pro is still working the prior way and allows me to pull more guides while remaining...

    Spot healing Brush

    forever I have used this tool, now instead of painting black over a blemish it is drawing a circle, i used to be able to paint out electric wires etc now it just draws a circle and can't figure out how to get back where I was.

    OK, my standard workflow is Open as Layers in Photoshop from Lightroom. I blend the layers, merge, align verticals. Simple Control +S, Control +W and I am back in lightroom. I just installed the latest CC of LR & PS. I just noticed that the save Tif file is huge, the two I send to PS are 56 Mb...

    Actions Actions not working properly

    Ok, switched to SSD, new Wacom tablet reinstalled everything. Some of my actions work about 50% of time, especially my auto align layers. I have redone the action (several times) and still no luck. When it doesn't work the auto align windows pops up and it hangs with about 30% progress. It falis...

    Large brush

    I am ready to install a ssd to pick up performance but whenever is use a large brush, say over 1500 px my computer goes into a spinning circle (used to be hour glass) to apply the effect, anything else I can do, I have an i7, 32 gb ram, windows 10.

    Real Estate photo Editing

    I have gotten so busy in my real estate photography business I can't keep up with the work. I am always working late Sunday night trying to finish the previous week.

    From Lightroom I frequently do edit in --> open as layers in photoshop, i normally blend two layers (ambient & Flash) for my workflow. when finished in photoshop and saved back to lightroom the file type is a tif, is it possible to save back as raw or nef, the reason I ask is a new lens only has...

    Layer Alignment

    Quick update, I have found that by not doing the lens profile prior to exporting to PS most of the alignment issue are much better, one problem is I was using a new Tamron 15-30 and I can't apply the profile with anything other than a raw image but I tried with the Nikon 14-24 and applied the...

    Layer Alignment

    It will disappear if I continue to brush. I typically brush at 100% Opacity and 6% flow just to add the tad of ambient desired, when I first begin to brush you can see the misalignment and if I continue of course then it will paint the area over completely and sharpen, both are sharp just...

    Layer Alignment

    It just surfaced for me recently, I did go with a new gear drive head, it does have a tiny bit of slop, maybe the culprit. I have been blending a little ambient with my Flash shots, love natural light.

    Layer Alignment

    I already use heavy Manfrotto tripods, like is said in the beginning I also use a wireless shutter release. When using back button focus my D800 & D810's hold the focus, I do not refocus, the only thing I touch is the shutter dial on the rear. Just seems that if I use the auto blend option I see...
