  2. As a photographic newbie I have made a habit of always looking for new courses by you as they have always carried me ahead in my learning, and I’m thrilled to begin this new course on printing which has thus far been a frustrating and confusing topic for me. Even though I’ve just begun this course it’s immediately prompted a question regarding post processing. Learning on my own I began by assuming that PS was the one and only program to learn and I diligently set about doing so with good success. Along the way the name Lightroom would pop up here and there and I would try not to get distracted by dismissing it as some kind batch processing program for wedding photographers. The release of LR 4 finally prompted me to actually take a look and I’ve fallen in love. With my limited experience I’ve now concluded that for adjustments that go beyond the original, as-is content of an image PS is needed, but for adjustments within the original, as-is content of the image (what i call Ansel Adams [AA] adjustments) LR does just about everything needed and in a more direct fashion. But as I see you and other respected instructors still go for PS for AA adjustments (I’m trying to discipline myself to deal with power lines, etc. at the shot) I feel like I must be missing something. The only thing I now really look to PS for is it’s smart object facility for plug ins like Silver Efex (which, btw, I’m using less and less upon learning all I can do in LR.) Sorry to go on, but I think this is a very timely and confusing issue for newer digital photographers (especially given the huge cost difference) and I would love to hear your comments.

  4. Ben:
    All thru the course you used levels adjustment layers, sometimes using separate layers with masks to work on separate parts of the image. Why levels and not curves? Wouldn’t you have had more flexibility with curves?

    I’m surprised because many of the other courses I’ve taken on Photoshop stress the use of curves over levels. But here you use levels exclusively.

    Just curious. All in all, it’s a very informative course. I’ve taken pages of notes.
    And, I have a better relationship now with the levels adjustment layer than I had before %-)

    One more comment is about setting print size in PS. In the workflow I’ve adopted, I’m never sure what the actual print size will be at the start. I know the paper size, and I know that I want at least 1″ margin between the image edge and the edge of the paper, but after cropping the image to the way I want to see it, I don’t really know what the actual image size will be. So I use the print dialog box after
    cropping to let me interactively adjust the image on the page to the way I want it, and then read off the actual size off the dialog, cancel out of the print dialog, and then go to Image Size and set the image to that size (with resolution at 360). Now I can proceed and be sure that the image will be exactly as I want it when I get to the print step.

    @Brian: LR is basically Bridge+Camera Raw plus an asset management database and a print module, plus more. It’s perfect for the general photographer, and there are many advantages. However, there are times when you do need to go to PS to do things you can’t quite do in LR. LR 4 is a major major improvement over previous versions. And has some excellent courses on LR4. Still, knowing both is a great advantage. And with some experience with both you’ll learn when to use one or the other, or both!

  10. Cancel a front camera design, WIFI function is also lacking, inevitably some regret, but fortunately is still equipped with GPS. Nokia 5230 5800XM always inherited the brick shape, including more we said earlier this gorgeous 3.2-inch 16 million color 640 * 360 screen,Keyboard layout is also entirely consistent.

  12. An early decision you must make is how you want to access to the stock
    market. If you want to be a passive trader and leave the management to an industry professional, mutual funds are good options that provide automatic portfolio diversficiation.
    If you are more of a do-it-yourselfer, then picking and trading your own stocks is possible too.
    Splitting your investment between both is a choice that some do as well.
