    Specific Gift for my mother

    You wont have an issue if you print it yourself yet if you take it to a photo printer, they typically will crop the image to fit the aspect ratio of the print size.

    How to use brush tool "undestructive"?

    Same experience here. There is one case, as I understand it, where the saved PSD does not grow (much) is when a linked file (as opposed to an embedded file) is brought in as an SO. All PS does is save the link to that file instead of a copy of the file. I don’t use them much yet linked files...

    How to use brush tool "undestructive"?

    It would probably help if you included ideally an image of your Layer stack and image and/or a step by step on what you are doing because it is hard from just the conversational text to know for sure what you are doing. I will answer the best I can by trying to divine what you are doing without...

    How to use brush tool "undestructive"?

    Hi Gore.m I am not aware of all of your requirements so hard to target all of my suggestions accurately. No, if you need precision masks, I do not know how to do that in ACR. If you stay away from "replacing" pixels (i.e. painting pixels on an overlay layer) and want to "adjust" a limited...

    How to use brush tool "undestructive"?

    Hi Gore.m Here is an example of smoothing your background all within the same Camera Raw Filer or ACR adjustments. They left is the original and the right is smoothed. This can easily be done in a variety of ways. For the above, I just used the adjustment brush with sharpness and clarity...
