    Well, after 5 (embarrassing years) of Photoshop I did not know this simple trick! Thx so much for spilling the beans!

    I love the Contract/Expand Selection functions in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements; I use them all the time. This is a great tutorial, very thorough and informative, useful for pretty much any Photoshopper whether they are a beginner or advanced user.

    This is a silly question but the filter gallery is greyed out. I am editing a raw file which is in 16bit. How do I get it to be 8bit?

  6. Yanikon 24 Nov 2008 at 9:38 pm

    @ Ian

    Go into Image-Mode- 8bit :)

    Thank you for placing these great tutorials on-line. Because I am unhappy about the way my pictures look on-line, I was researching information for the correct way to crop and save for best quality. I want the highest largest photo to be displayed for quality; I am not concerned about my photos being stolen because zenfolio provides watermarks to be placed over pictures, etc.

    Just like your example in the video, I normally change the dpi to 300, but in the future, I will not do that.

    I will continue to search for the correct way to put pictures on the web. So I won’t have to put a note on my website stating “pictures may appear dark but this is not the final product.” I want my clients to immediately be proud of their pictures and want to show them off which in turn will be advertisement for me.

    Thanks a bunch!

    hi, thanx for you great tutorials.

    I don’t know if you’ve switched to CS4(today being march 2009), but the select-modify-contract no longer works if the border of a selection reaches the end of a canvas. I was wondering if you had a work around for this, like changing settings…?

    (the way i do it is just temporarily expand the canvas a little, make the selection and modify(contract), and then erase the temporary canvas that was just made. its alittle annoying.. :) )

    @ AlpineSoul

    Sorry but I’m still on CS3. I’ll only upgrade this summer when I upgrade my computer. :)
