    Step 1 – Installing Your Actions Before you learn how to create your own Photoshop actions, it’s important for you to try it first and see what they can do. Head over to our Photoshop Actions section and download some actions to try out. You can pick any action but we’ll be using the Instant Hipster actions to demonstrate this tutorial. ATN vs ZXP files Sometimes when you download any Photoshop action, you’ll get an ATN file, ZXP file, or both. The difference between the two is that the ATN file will load the actions directly into Photoshop while the ZXP file will install it…

    In many of my workshops, photography career articles, and classes, I’ll often share with my students the one amazing tool that will revolutionize their work, help attract new clients, and keep their spirits positive all at once. It’s personal work. Sure, maybe you’ve heard this before, but maybe you haven’t heard the true significance of why doing ongoing personal photoshoots are so important for you. For me, doing this has made my entire career.The past year has thankfully been very good business-wise (I’m a commercial photographer and video producer), but as we all know, we…

    Lightroom Killer Tips

  • Lightroom Mobile Tip: Selecting A Photo To Represent the Collection

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    15 Apr 2014 | 7:14 am
    Lightroom Mobile launched last week to a huge welcoming crowd at Photoshop World. Since then I’ve heard a lot of great feedback on it and I’m hopeful to see where things go in the future. Anyway, I had a cool tip to share that one of the blog readers (Brian) asked about last week. See, Lightroom Mobile uses collections on the iPad. When you’re looking at all of your collections though, you’re only going to see one photo that represents the collection. But sometimes that photo (that Lightroom chooses automatically) may not be a good representation of the collection for…

  • Converting To DNG After Importing To Lightroom

    2 Apr 2014 | 11:01 pm
    First off I just wanted to give a HUGE thanks to everyone that came out to my seminars this week in Indianapolis and Columbus, OH. I had two awesome crowds and, while I’m really happy to be on my way home, I had a blast getting to meet everyone who came out. Anyway, I’m on the plane back, and had some time to think about common questions I get. One of those questions is about converting to DNG and whether or not it’s possible to convert to it after you do your Lightroom import. See, the Import dialog has a Copy as DNG option in it. But what if you’re just adding photos…
  • 5 Random Little Things In Lightroom That Throw People Off

    31 Mar 2014 | 5:19 am
    I’m on the plane to Indianapolis right now, heading to teach my Lightroom seminar tomorrow (well, today when you read this). As I’m reviewing my notes, I realized there’s a bunch of little random things that people will come up and ask about throughout the day. Things that throw people off, have them searching around needlessly for settings, or simply things/settings that were just accidentally clicked on. So I thought I’d recap the top 5 I hear about. 1) Info Display – By default, Lightroom wants to put your photo “info” over the photo. Personally I hate…
  • Can You Apply Multiple Presets in Lightroom?

    jgilbert@photoshopuser.com (Matt Kloskowski)
    25 Mar 2014 | 7:16 am
    I get the question all the time… Can you stack multiple presets in Lightroom? The answer? You “kinda” can, but it’s not really stacking. See, each preset let’s you record a certain adjustment (Exposure, Highlights, vignetting, etc…) and it’s settings. So if I have my Exposure set to +1.00 when I create a preset, it’ll record that +1.00 as the Exposure setting as long as I check the Exposure checkbox in the Preset dialog (see below). Once I apply the preset to another photo it’ll set that photo’s Exposure setting to +1.00. No matter…

    Digital Mastery: The home of everything Ben

  • A Day in Penang

    admin
    15 Apr 2014 | 12:34 pm
    As our South-east Asian adventure continued, we sailed from Singapore to the Malaysian city of Penang. Like many of the other ports, we explored on our own here instead of taking a tour. This town was amazing for street photography, so I’m going to let the photos do most of the talking, but there was such a great mix of color, texture and light here. Many of the buildings were old and worn but still charming, and the temples were colorful and plentiful. We also found some fun and unique shops in the town, including “Ben’s Vintage Toy Museum” (not kidding) and a store…
  • Singapore: Shopping Malls, Food & Gardens

    admin
    4 Apr 2014 | 6:08 am
    Some of the busiest days we’ve had on this international trip so far were spent in Singapore. There is just so much to do there that we were often off the ship first thing in the morning and returning late in the evening. We were lucky in that the Crystal Symphony was docked there for three full days, and then made a round-trip voyage returning to Singapore two weeks later, this time docking for two full days. That made for five days of exploring time, and it gave us the chance to really get to know the city. Our arrival into Singapore was really interesting in that it was one of the few…
  • Brunei: Sultan Splendors, Water Villages & Mosques

    1 Apr 2014 | 5:45 am
    Our next port of call would provide a stark contrast to many of the previous ones in Indonesia. Whereas in earlier ports, we saw a lot of extreme poverty, in Brunei we saw a lot of extreme wealth, especially when it comes to anything relating to the sultan, who is one of the richest people in the world. His palace has a whopping 1,788 rooms! He does spread the wealth around, however. Both healthcare and education is free to all citizens, and there’s also no personal income tax. The city is very nice and the streets are very well-maintained. In Brunei, we visited a museum focusing on the…

    After visiting several Indonesian ports, we finally moved on and stopped at Kota Kinabalu, our first port in Malaysia. We decided to explore on our own here, as we did for many of the other ports. What’s nice is that Crystal usually runs a shuttle service from the ship to the center of town. (The only exceptions are when the country we’re visiting has restrictions against it.) This makes it easy to explore a lot on foot… if you don’t mind long walks in the Southeast-Asian heat! In Kota Kinabalu, we first walked to the local market and actually ended up spending a lot of time there.

    It’s not every day that you get to visit one of the UNESCO wonders of the world! We were very lucky to have been able to visit the spectacular Borobudur, the largest Buddhist temple in the world, on our stop in Semarang. Semarang is on the Indonesian island of Java, on the southern edge of the Java sea. We took the tour to Borobudur because it was quite the trek to get there from Semarang. Not only was it a three-hour bus ride, but the traffic gets so bad there that we had police escort cars the ENTIRE way there and back, with their sirens on and everything. They would stop traffic and lead…

    Spring time in New York City means it’s time for Macy’s Annual Flower Show.  Due to renovations in the Herald Square store, Macy’s held the past two Flower Shows in a tent on Broadway.  The first year was a huge disappointment but last year’s show was spectacular.  This year, Macy’s held the show in their newly renovated show and I am missing the tent! Aside for the large red dress display near the Broadway entrance, this lackluster show is more like a spring sale display than a true flower show.   This year’s theme is “The Secret Garden”,…

    Have you ever gotten the urge to grab your camera and go out and shoot in the middle of the night?  Photography at night is an adventure.  You stumble around, set up your tripod, guess at a starting exposure (not really), stumble around some more, probably freeze your butt off, take forty two shots of the moon, stumble around again and on and on.  You'd thing that Hollywood, making big time epics, would avoid all that stumbling at all costs.  Actually, they usually do.  Next time you're watching a movie where the hero (heroine) is out wandering around in the dark,…

In today's image I sort of took the long way around to get to the finished image.  It went from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (LR) to Adobe Photoshop (PS), back to LR for tone mapping, and once again to PS to replace the HDR sky and back to LR for storage.  There's two reasons for the trips over to PS.  The first was to create the HDR image.  The second was to replace the…

    Everybody loves keyboard shortcuts, and today on TipSquirrel, we have Lightroom 5 Keyboard Shortcuts for you! Learning keyboard shortcuts can help boost your productivity and can be the key to a smooth and consistent workflow. In addition, you’re taking some of the work away from your mouse, and that can be a benefit if you tend to suffer from repetitive motion stress. There are a few Lightroom 5 keyboard shortcuts everyone should know – for example, the big three in my mind are “G, E, D” (for grid view, loupe view, and develop module view). And there’s “R” for the crop tool.

I’ve taken it a few times now and I can’t say it gets any easier, but I like doing it, and I certainly like getting the results (so far).

This abstract Photoshop technique has you interacting with the image, pushing pixels around, and it can be as much fun as finger painting, but without all the mess.
