    Adobe's Inconsistencies

    Well that just makes me crazy! What is Adobe doing switching stuff around? Now I have to think!

    I don't know how many people use illustrator for anything, but what drives me nuts there is that you can't type and sample of text and toggle through the fonts. You can do it PS but not in Illustrator. Adobe needs to be consistant!


    Thank you for pointing that out, though, because I thought I was loosing it. Sometimes the <> keys would work on everything but the healing brush and sometimes they wouldn't. In 6.0 they always worked on the brushes. Grrrr.

    Still using v6.02.. I decided to upgrade on even numbers on PS and odd numbers on Illustrator :-)

    Healing brush sounds very useful to me..Think I'll download a demo someday soon to see it in action..

    As for the file browser/palette discussion..
    I added a cheap secondhand 19" screen next to my 21" screen.
    The 21" shows only the menu bar and status bar, all palets are on the 19"screen. This uses about half the screen size, so in the other half I ususlly keep windows explorer/mac finder open.

    Cheaper than an upgrade, but alas no healing brush... is it really worth it?

    Try the "[" and "]" keys. They work! Sanity restored!

    The hardest thing I found switching from 5.5 to 6.0 was the text tool changes. As a web designer, I use text quite often, and this took a lot of getting used to.

    And SHIFT/TAB gets rid of everything but the tools palette, in case you prefer that method.

    Or...see attached.

    It makes all of the open pallets slide just out of site (you can see the edge so can tell where you left them).

    you can download it as a demo... fully funtional .. forever I guess... but each day the nag screen stays on a bit longer... think it's just 17.00 anyhow...

    If you try it give it a little time... and whenever it seems to be annoying you wherever you are working... remember to just hit the "tab" button as usual..

    Got it, thanks for the tip, just what I needed. Greg

    ps.. I was fortunate enough to get the beta test version from a sister who received it.. but doesn't do photos... I like it just fine...

    I like the "browse" feature .. always kept "paintshop" on the pc just so that I could find things ... move them around etc..

I've only used it for about 1/2 hour, just to try some of the goodies. I think the file browser is great, and the healing brush and patch tool are something to behold! I did have a problem at first trying to browse in the file browser. When I would click on the + sign next to Desktop, I received the message that Photoshop could not complete the request due to a program error. I'm not even sure why I did this, but I switched users on XP, tried again, and everything was fine. I still can't browse the files under my account. Weird!! Just thought I'd let you know in case you have the same problem.

    PSP has had all the photo tools and scratch tool and auto this and that for 3 yrs in PSP7. Although I love PS, Painter, I still use PSP for most work, not for it's brushes.

    Lisa,

    Thanks very much for the link. It looks like they have a lot to offer. We'll probably be seeing a lot of new tutorials popping up all over the place. Thanks again.

    "I was afraid to ask cj if she still liked the interface improvement device (i haven't been thrown out of better places)... "

    RonDon, there aren't any bouncers here, and I definitely want you to stay -- you are a good addition to the site.

    As for the interface improvement program, it worked very well with my PShop 5.5, although I had some computer crashes after I loaded it AND one other program -- not sure which had some incompatibilities with my setup. Since my new PShop version 6 arrived, I was going to compare PS6's palette well and the interface improver - but I couldn't figure out how to make the palette well work. I read the manual, the Help file, some websites, but finally searched the newsgroups via Google (why didn't I do that earlier -- I know they usually have answers) and found what I was doing wrong. Now that I can use the palette well, I don't think I'll need the interface improver anymore -- but it really helped my PS5.5. Thanks, RonDon for the recommendation.

    Now, be good or I'll get the boot out

    Well I was afraid to ask cj if she still liked the interface improvement device (i haven't been thrown out of better places)... so I'll leave that alone and thank Lisa for just what I needed to see.. ..
    For some reason... reading the manual never worked for me... looks like some usefull stuff there at your link.

    Thought you might like to see a great link with PS7 Tutorial. They have a great tutorial on Channel damage and repair.

    RonDon -- thank you VERY much!! I like it -- it works like Doug's menu here on the site. Don't know how it'll work with my new version 6, but I'll try it out until then.

    Doug, you're right, of course, but even though I've learned a number of shortcuts for my most used tools, I still want to check the options palette and see my history palette. It's probably just a combination of habit and lack of experience, but it seems cumbersome to tab back and forth. I do use the tab when I'm looking at a draft image. This new program allows me quicker access to any palette I want, and for me it's more intuitive to just move my cursor to the palette rather than use the tab key.

    Hey cool! I never saw that before. That looks like a feature Photoshop should have by default. Especially if the user has a smaller size monitor.

    PS6 vs. older versions
    by kathleen
    hey dj

    have you had ps6 long enough now to report on your impressions and specifically the pluses and minuses over the earlier version you had? what was hard to learn/get used to? You using it exclusively now? inquiring minds need to know . . .

    How do I get work as a retoucher?
    by Benny
    Hi, I have worked as a photographer in the past and because of my interest in photography I have spent a lot of time trying to master Photoshop which I love. As it is hard to make ends meet as a photographer in a small country town and I'm sick of having to work weekends, I'm thinking about a career...

    Logitech, NuLOOQ Navigator. Review.
    by ScubaMargie
    I suppose in a way you can call me a bit of a technophobe, new technologies are a bit scary. When I first plugged the Nulooq into the computer it lit up with little blue LEDs and I recoiled from it because I wasn't expecting it. I was excited that it had arrived and wanted to use it but was unsure...

    Beginner woes...
    by klassylady25
    I've been on here for some time and the more I watch the more discouraged I become. Mind you that doesn't mean that I'm going to stop trying but everytime I see your pictures come out so well, and you talk about this techique or use of that tool, I think that I may never come to a place of excellence....

    Photoshop 7
    by Rick
    Hi all.

    I've just gotten a copy of photoshop a number of weeks ago and I've had a chance to play with it extensively for the first time a few days ago.

    Oh. My. God.

    It makes things much easier. It is an absolute snap to remove wrinkles and creases...
