    Hi, it has been awhile since I have needed to use Lighting Effects on my Mac using PS CS5, but I discovered that it is no longer there. I Googled it and some of the suggestions were that it will only work if you use 32 bit mode and 8 bits/channel. I tried that but it didn't re-appear in my...

    CS5 Zooming Glitch

    Hi all. I have recently run into a problem when zooming in and out of files in PS CS5. When I am zoomed to 50%, 100%, 200% etc my lines appear smooth and clear, but when these values are changed even by 1% all lines (even vectors) become jagged and distorted. It's quite irritating when trying to...

    Photoshop, automatically re-load images when you start photoshop?

    I'm using Photoshop for the first time, and have a lot of images open that I'm working on for a project. My question is, if i close Photoshop, when i reopen it, will all my images still be on, or will i have to reopen all of my images. If that makes sense? I'm using cs5 FYI.

    Problem With Custom Shape Tool

    I just got a new computer and installed Photoshop CS5. The only difference I'm aware of between the old and new computers is that the old one was running the 32-bit version of CS5 and the new one has the 64-bit version. On my old computer, the custom shape tool had nearly 300 vector shapes to...

    CS5 vs. CS5 64-Bit

    Just got a new computer yesterday and successfully installed CS5 (from the original CD I purchased years ago). But it installed two versions, one that says CS5 and one that says CS5 64-Bit. I briefly researched this and saw a few articles saying that 64-bit is faster if your computer can...

    When I cut a detail from an image already in Photoshop & proceed to paste the detail into a new blank document, I get this mysterious soft border, as this around the detail image of my dog.
