Sync Settings in CC

With Photoshop CC 2015 now released (along with many others), it’s time to update. First, CC 2015 rocks! One of the “pains” in updating Photoshop is getting the new edition just like the old one. Well, this is pretty dang easy. Under Preferences you’ll find Sync Settings. The dialog above appears. As you can see, you can sync amongst all your machines everything if you want (which includes custom tool and Actions!). This is such a HUGE time saver, wanted to make sure you knew this feature was...

A Test Time Lapse Testing “Exposure Smoothing”

I love doing time lapse (latest one I shared)! Been doing them for a long time and quite often, I do them just as a way to remind myself of the time and place, not to be shared. The D810 has a new “exposure smoothing” algorithm that is part of its Time-lapse that I wanted to try out prior to hitting the field with it (this was shot from our deck). Time-lapse Photography is in My Menu so I selected it, set Interval to 15″, Shooting time to 6:25′ hours, Exposure smoothing On and got ready to go. The rig, D810 / 24f1.4 AFS loaded with Lexar 128GB SD (I have video saved to the SD slot) with the battery fully charged and hot out of the charger. The Time-lapse feature in the D810 (like in the other bodies) processes and saves the time lapse as a .mov when done.

What I Used at PSW – Wacom 13HD

I’ve had a number of folks who came to my Landscape Class at Photoshop World ask what I was using when finishing images. I had the Mac Retina and the Wacom 13HD. I never leave home without either! They both have the same footprint, they both fit in the Think Tank 2nd Brain and they both greatly speed up my work in the digital darkroom. As you can see in the video, the Wacom 13HD is a portable Cintiq, a monitor and tablet combined into one unit. It’s pretty darn cool technology and as you saw in class, it permits great speed and creativity. So there’s your answer to what I was using on...
