  1. Hi Damien, I Could use some pointers. I used save for web action for which i had separate set configured for Instagram which would limit size to 1024x 1024 at max. That action used to work fine for more than year. I guess recent upgrade resulted in some changes? I tried to troubleshoot and found that canvas size step is where things going wrong. Somehow my watermark is coming up by size 1215x271 and somehow that worked fine for earlier images. (which makes no sense as for Instagram i'm defining max size in 1024 px. and watermark size is coming as 1215 px. ) Now at that step, photoshop is "increasing horizontal size of vertical picture by adding blank space". I revisited steps and saw .. in example, your watermark length is coming around 200px .. what am i missing here? how come my watermark (which is nothing but "@Rahul Lele" is resulting in 1215x271 ? Appreciate your input here. attaching example of "increasing horizontal size of vertical picture by adding blank space"
  2. Focus check please. i think the frame is in focus but not sure about the eye. Not sure if this is keeper.
  3. Hi Damien, I'm using bridge for more than year for now, but this is one thing i miss from lightroom, (A Lot) . Can you please help me with "How to do it in Bridge ?" I often to retrospective, before i delete pictures, i look at them on summary basis. Lightroom helps me achieve this, However I can't do this in bridge effectively. Here is screenshot from Lightroom. I can check my keeper images across, various levels like .. how many keepers for a lens .. for a Setting more than ISO 4000 or f stop. This kind of helps me identifying areas i need to work on while taking pictures. Somehow .. when i try to do that in bridge, count doesn't update. In case of 7 files, it doesn't matter much, i can calculate and manually keep track. But for my 50 mm there are total 168 images, Lightroom gives me report in few clicks. 24 one star - Blurred, off focus, beyond argument, delete now. 44 two stars - argument can be made but delete.. 81 three star - group that will go into 4 or 5 stars. 19 four star - candidates for five stars. clearly above rest of the set. I simply can't get this out of bridge, is there simple thing i'm missing ?
  4. Brush tool is behaving funny i guess ? on PSD file, it works fine .. absolutely fine. If i'll try something on JPEG ( No good reason to do it, i was just wanted to compare edited file against Out of Camera, wanted to increase brightness of JPEG at selective portion.) it started giving me this .. Only rim will be selected response. Screen shot attached. when i came out of quick mask, only green portion was selected. Any clue ?

  9. In that case, we'll lose those pixel rest of the way ? wouldn't that be loss ... i mean .. since this is for saving JPEG for web .. .. this is going to be save as thing and i guess thats why it's ok ?
  10. Figured it out. There is setting buried in .. "Show cropped Area". Every time there is update, Adobe takes liberty to update few settings for you 🙄 I checked it ... Now i can see picture like i used to see earlier and (for me) it makes much easier to crop image to my liking. I still see those crazy color blocks above in picture once in while but I guess its about my laptops processing power or cache capacity. Thank you for those steps.
  11. It is not going well. Since this was taking long time, i kept it on the side. (for a long long time. ). All steps are coming well except for Crop step. I want to manually decide crop. When i come to that step, all screen go to black and some color strips like it used to come on very old television sets.) when i try to change crop it goes all crazier. Attaching screenshots. This step is killing me. I got all steps in my workflow settled and once this step is done, i'll be able to start posting my pictures to facebook and instagram. Can you please help ? Probably not related to this or may be thats the issue, any Crop tool update in photoshop CC ? I don't know if its just me but earlier when i used to draw crop, i could move image or crop just fine, now ... its so annoying .. that i'm thinking to use light room just for the crop feature given how easy it is there and how painful this crop is turning out to be.
  12. 20 % Too much faith in Tamron's Image stabilization and 80 % Overconfidence (That i'll get away with this) .. thats what killed this entire photoshoot for me. Lesson learned (pretty hard way !!). Thinking about it .. i should have just revisited .. what i was doing in terms of overall settings. .. i was very nervous that day .. got carried away .. looking at just histogram .. thinking exposure is good. .. Thank you for input though. I won't repeat this mistake again.
  13. Focus check please.
