  1. Also, support for multiple monitors?
  2. My apologies if this has been covered before. How multi-threaded is Photo? Just trying to figure out if the new iMac Pro is worth it. Standard iMac is 4 core i7. iMac Pro is 8-18 core Xeon. Will it make a noticeable difference? Kind regards, Jason Berge.
  3. Thanks Owenr. Will this work within a selection? If so then it may just accomplish the same effect as "Channel chopping" Yay! Will have to give it a try over the next few days. The work book has arrived, and I am slowly working my way through it. Soooooo much Adobe to unlearn. It is a real struggle for me, as I have been using PS for nearly 30 years and don't really think about what I am doing, it is all just automatic. Kind regards, Jason Berge.
  4. Sorry, I have been away for a while and not looked in on this thread. Thanks R C-R But not at all what I am trying to do. "Channel Chopping" is an old technique where you take the tonal information from one channel, copy it and then paste it into another channel to drastically change the colour. The benefit of doing this as opposed to using something like selective colour or hue saturation is that preserves detail and texture. With SC or HS, if you make huge colour changes, eg red to blue you loose contrast in the individual channels, and therefore everything flattens out and looses "Shape" I have bought the workbook, should arrive soon (shipping to New Zealand ) hopefully that will have some clues in it. Thanks, Jason.
  5. Kind of. Seems much more complicated and convoluted than it needs too be, creating extra layers and channels. Why can't you just select and view individual channels easily, and copy and paste directly between them, without having to create all the extra stuff? Will work, but needs work, if you know what I mean. Cheers, Jason.
  6. Hi I have done a bit of a search but can't find what I am looking for so I thought I would ask. I am a long, long, long time Photoshop user (25yrs+) but have begun using AP for a variety of reasons. So lots of UN-learning to do. I have watched most of the tutorials I can find on "Channels" but can't seem to do what I want, which is of course frustrating because I can do it in PS in my sleep. What I am trying to do is "Channel Chopping" i.e. copying and pasting channels to alter colour and tonality. By way of example, editing a tomato, in CMYK it may lack definition and shape after conversion from RGB as the M and Y channels would be saturated. To add shape and form you would look at the individual channels and perhaps copy the C channel and paste it into the K (within a selection of course) to increase the shading and restore the "volume". I can't figure out how to do this in AP. I can see and choose individual channels, but can't seem to copy and paste between them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Jason.

  7. Hi, A suggestion for a feature related to the print side. Please ad support for Hifi offset printing, i.e. CMYK + other colours such as RGB (Opatone) or OG (Hexachrome). I know these are very niche, but that is my point. I am a photographer that is looking to produce hi-end photo books, and it is very hard to find software to create anything beyond basic CMYK separations. Most certainly not with Adobe stuff. Once the files are separated layout software will pass it through to the PDF if you do it right, but the initial separations, and accurate soft proofing and CC is pretty much impossible with current software. Old versions of Photoshop (CS2) can do it, along with plug-ins, but Adobe got lazy and dropped support. Once again, I know it is niche stuff, but for those that need it, it would be a huge win to have current software that they can use. Kind regards, Jason Berge. www.shoot.co.nz
