Gone to the farm for the weekend.  I'll still be answering questions, but much less frequently than usual.  Thank you for your understanding.  Damien.

    It's no biggie, you just need to go to the Layers panel submenu (the three little lines) and choose "Panel Options". Presently your thumbnail size is set to "None". Change it to something bigger.

    Come on, it needs to be a LOT more blurred than this, if you want it to match the one you linked above.

    It's almost like having an Intel or AMD CPU...each motherboard manufacturer utilizes the Architecture of these chips and then design motherboards around it, with some overclocking things or doing other performance tweaks. So you will have a Intel Motherboard, Asus Motherboard, a Gigabyte Motherboard, MSI Motherboard, etc. All of them use the Intel i9 CPU chip. Some will use the AMD Ryzen CPU, etc. So in this example, NVIDIA is like Intel, and AMD is AMD. I have found that the NVIDIA drivers play really well with Photoshop and it just works with all sorts of stuff across the board. In my humble opinion, the NVIDIA RTX 3070 is the "Best Bang for your Buck" model. If I were buying a computer today, I would be getting a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB based card, and would pick the MSI one. They are built better and their customer support has been historically better.

    NVIDIA is the creator of the Graphics Processor. Other companies buy these GPUs and put their own things on them, cooling strategies, etc. but the performance should be the same across the board. I found this thread: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-difference-between-Nvidia-and-companies-like-MSI-Gigabyte-and-Zotac MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS all make good stuff. ANY of those $1300 cards you linked to I would buy. It's too bad that they cost $1300, in reality they should be about $500AUD.

    Brian, thank you so much for all this information. I think this has now convinced my husband to stay with Clean My Mac. BTW, videos were great!

    He's pretty terrified about the recovery, but he had absolutely no cartilage left in his hip joint, he's awake and looks good. Thanks for asking

    Thank you. The DisplayProfile is now working. I have no idea how or when it became functioning. Happy it works.

    I started with full opacity. I did the edges first, and then filled in the rest. Because I'd used 100% brush opacity, this meant that some areas were too dark. So then I used a low-opacity black brush to gradually reduce those areas until the blend looked right.

    Hi My name is Chris. I am relatively new to photography, I bought my first DSLR last year. I mainly have interest in portrait and street photography. Although I have grown in my editing ability, I am mostly self taught. I hope to grow in my knowledge of editing and Photoshop.

    Yep, you got it. Use Image Processor, and include an action that resizes and sharpens. Exactly as discussed at the end of these instructions. https://www.damiensymonds.net/act_web.html

    Not crazy at all. I mean, it's a bit hard to let photos go that you know aren't as good as they can be, but it's what we have to do sometimes. Generally you'd do the ACR editing the same as normal, then at the last minute, increase the Contrast slider. Also be generous with Clarity.

    The contrast issue must of just been my old screen. New laptop is pretty much bang on ( I had to adjust the white point to 6500 ) but I wish the entire population would calibrate their screen. So much better!

    Ah yeah, that gels well.

    Hi @SLS, sorry about my delayed reply. I was doing the grocery shopping I don't have any "clever tricks" for you, I'm afraid. It will begin with Levels using the eyedropper tool, and careful masking. After that, very painful, painstaking cloning. Download this PSD file to see how I've done one of the glares so far.

    Ah, bugger. Covid, what a drama. I got the SpyderX Elite today though, so that's going to give me a starting point at least!

    Yeah Run, don't walk, to the Raw Class re-sign-up page. This is dreadful.

    Hi, my MacBook Pro keeps coming up with a connect to wifi and saying it needs a critical update. It won’t let you do this and I took it to Apple and they suggested wiping and starting again. Which I did! it still won’t start properly sometimes I have to restart in safe mode but then it still might take a dozen times of restarting to even get in. it’s doing my head in. Any suggestions?
