PHOTOSHOP 2015.5 – Big Changes

If you just updated photoshop to the new version via creative cloud which is Photoshop 2015.5, there are some big changes especially as it relates to Refine Edge and Masking.  I’m just now starting to review these changes and naturally it’s slowed me down a bit.  I’m sure I’ll get used to them eventually lol.

Here’s an article that explains the changes and how to modify your preferences.  Also the video below explains the major changes.  To go right to the changes related to masking, skip to 13:56.

Change is always difficult and it annoyed me that I had to learn something else but seems it’s the way of the world these days!




Expanding Horizons – Replacing a Color

Have you ever wanted to know how to change the color of flowers, balloons, or someone’s shirt in photoshop?  Take a look at my newest video (just under 8 minutes long) on how to replace a color nondestructively so you can go back and change the color later with just a click of a button.  Oh the joys of technology!  The techniques shown here are useful in so many other applications, not just replacing a color.

As a side note, I’ve ordered a headset with a microphone so the audio quality will be a lot better in the future.  Thank goodness for iMovie to reduce the noise in post production.  It’s still not that great but it’s a lot better than the original, trust me.  OY!
