    I want to digitize my photo albums. As the albums need to go to my ex-wife, I want to scan at the best possible quality (size is not a major issue). I have a scanner, which does a decent job, but it will be quite hard to fit some of the pages on the scanner glass. I have found that taking...

    Is it possible to develop presets for Unsharp Mask in PS CS6?

    I use Unsharp Mask quite often. I find these presets from Kelby very useful: Is it possible to develop presets for these? I have searched the web, but could not find anything. [/FONT] [/FONT]

    Editing vintage or not so vintage scanned photos in PS (1)

    Yes, I like it. I am not sure if one needs to bring in some sepia?? What editing tools did you use and if you used PS, what were your settings, as the original scanned ones are app 10 MB big. I therefore will not be able to use your image. Thanks a lot for helping!

    Editing vintage or not so vintage scanned photos in PS (1)

    Yes, these ones do have a charm of their own. Can you suggest any better settings? I want to print and display these photos. I just attached a few of the photos that I want to use in the second post. I thought of framing them, with a central bigger one- I actually like the last one in the...

    Excessive grain/noise after editing in PS CS5 RAW

    Thank you, Steve. Two questions: 1. If I want to print pictures, the closest to what will be printed will therefore be what I see on Photoshop? 2. If I want to show a lot a photos on my laptop to friends/family- what programme will be the best and fastest to scroll from one picture to another...

    Excessive grain/noise after editing in PS CS5 RAW

    What is the best programme in your opinion to view edited photos especially to see how close they will be to printed gloss photos? I do not print photos myself, but use a local shop.

Your opinion...

    Export function in bridge not working

    Thanks for your answer. This is really amazing!! I suppose a second option would be to export to my hard drive and reduce the size and then upload to Facebook? If I do this, I have read that the size should be 700 pixels in length, but I'm not sure how to do that.

    Shadows/highlights in PS 7?

    I found this excellent tutorial on how to change shadows, etc. It included the ability to change the amount, the tonal width and the radius, BUT, I cannot find it in my PS 7. Is this function not available in Photoshop 7? If not, is there something similar?

    I am not sure that this will display well, but let's try: I have a Canon 450D that takes excellent pictures. If I open PS to edit, the quality of the picture is not what it should be, making editing difficult: This is the picture as saved on my PC: The best area to look at is to compare...
