  1. OMG, please please bring out your DAM software. I do not trust Adobe with regard to the future of LR Classic. My experience with LR has been extremely buggy with it's connection to my online galleries and sharable "collections". It doesn't connect 99% of the time. I need a DAM that I can manage client shot approvals (with notes and favorites) quickly and easily, and on the phone. No big deal right? Just whip out that software? Please help me dump Adobe.

    rasterise after crop

    I understand. I try to do all of my noise reduction in the "developing" stage when it is still raw format.

    rasterise after crop

    Thank you Leigh and Fixx, So, it seems that if I want to preserve every little bit my images in layers, I should avoid rasterizing layers. I have rasterized layers (images) in the past, and not realizing that I was set to 96 dpi, the image became degraded, but I didn't notice until later when zoomed in. Previously, I was only rasterizing to make the box and handles more manageable on a cropped image. But now, I work in 300 dpi, and I will avoid the raster and just deal with the less convenient box/handle placement. Does this reflect the way any of you are working? Thank you.

    rasterise after crop

    Sorry to bump, but maybe I was not making a clear question. Exactly how does raterise work on a pixel layer after cropping that layer? Does the DPI setting matter to rasterising?
  5. Hello, After cropping a layer which contains an image (pixels not vector), I have been "rasterising" that layer, so that the bounding box resets. This works well for me, but I have a question: Does rasterising an image (which is only pixels) change the quality of the image? Does it change the pixels which were available to edit before rasterising? I work at 300 dpi, and have not noticed any change. But, I don't really understand what is being done to the image when I rasterise. It is not a vector, soooo....?
  6. Hello, just a plus one here. I am applying a Live Gaussian to a layer. A square grid is VERY visible on this effect layer about 125 px by 125 px. Of course, I didn't choose to put a grid there and it is killing the effect. Is there a fix ? If you want , I can post a pic to help explain? Thanks, Thaddeus. iMac 4gHz quad, late 2015.

  7. Hi , I'm new to AP. Right now, I am doing many many touch-ups on product shots, very zoomed in. Needing to remove dust and fibers. Huge pain in the rump. I miss the "remove dust and scratches" filter from PS, but I am trying to learn AP !!!! So, I had been doing most of my touch up with the stamp tool, when thought to try the Paint Mixer Brush. It's brilliant, but I can't find any tutorial on it anywhere. Or even examples of how it works. So , I have just been guessing. Can someone make a tutorial please ? --I guess that you pick your color by alt+click ?? Then paint away.... --auto-load occurs every time you click ? --hardness is for the definition of the edges of the stroke ? --flow is how fast it runs out of the color ? --Should I set blend modes ? --what happens to the blend modes if I don't ? --favorite uses ? Thanks so much. Are there any plug-ins which would make fiber and dust removal faster ??????
