  • Hello

    Hi all. I am from Jamestown RI and I have been using Lightroom for several years to process my RAW files. Over the years I have made several attempts to get into PS - all ending in total frustration. I joined RetouchPro for inspiration and knowledge from all you experts out there.

      The problem is the export option. I use the "Original" file option and with this I can still...
