    Put the focus on me and my fiance and not the fence.

    Hi, I'm Caleb and I recently proposed to my girlfriend and my friend took pictures, but he isn't such a skilled photographer and focused on the wrong aspects of what was happening, this is one of the best pictures we got back and I was wondering if there was anyway you could get us into focus...

    Photoshop "Save" menu loses keyboard focus after switching back from another program

    It might appear as a silly question, but this problem gets increasingly annoyant, when one is confronted with it often ... The issue is this - since I often switch to my file explorer to copy the file name to later insert it in the Photoshop's "Save as" menu, it's quite cumbersome to always use...

    So, I began shooting star trails today with my Canon 550d and the kit 18-55 lens(because I don't have anything else) and I came out with this photo(RAW).

    "Zooming in" on photos

    I have some photos where the subjects are too far away, so I would like to crop and show them close up. The images are high resolution so sometimes it's not too bad, although sometimes they're not very in focus. I was wondering if there are any tips or tricks in Photoshop to help...

    Two-faced portrait (photomanipulation)

    Hi! As my first thread, why not post a picture of myself. I've seen some of these before, but not with the mouth open. So I gave it a try myself. I took the photos myself, so sadly it isn't completely in focus. Critique wanted. And ideas for a better background. (I'm bad at backgrounds :P)

    focus stacking - panel closes after alignment done

    I do a fair amount of macro work and focus stacking has been a standard tool for some time now. It's a technique that takes a modest amount of preliminary work and the procedure is absolutely rote once the photos are loaded. No thought or additional manipulation required. But I've been having...
