  1. How do I merge the adjustment into background? I dragged the adjustment into background, and followed the other steps, but the dark background still exists.
  2. In trying to remove the white background from this image, I still seem to end up with a non transparent background. See the cover mockup file. How do I get a properly clear background? Peace_mockup.afphoto
  3. I managed to get it working, but it just makes it look like I have a skin condition. Is there a better way to light the right side of the image, or do I just need to get better at using dodge?
  4. I have the dodge brush selected, and am trying to use it to lighten part of an image, but nothing is happening. Where might I be going wrong? I'm attaching an image of the work area. Thanks
  5. I think this circles back to my initial question. How do I adjust the text frames so that they are equal in distance from the center? Changing the master page margins still makes no difference to the layout of the text frames. They only shift if I do so manually.
  6. Thanks Thomaso. I will go through these points and see if I can follow your guidance.
  7. Sub question: what is the fastest way to delete large numbers of pages?
  8. Having tried this, the actual layout does not change, even when reapplying the master to specific pages to check. Where am I going wrong?
  9. I'm looking at a proof of my new book and I'd really like to increase the gutter by a small amount. What is the best way to do this? I've tried just nudging the text boxes out on the master page, but my nerve is failing me - I'm not getting the info I need that assures me that the gutter is increasing by the same amount on both sides of the spread. All I can see is the x axis is changing. In Word it is simple, so I'm hoping there is a gutter control option somewhere.
  10. I have a pixel layer highlighted, but cannot change the color. How is this done?
  11. I'm not sure how to get this to work. I can't seem to select the rectangle I want to apply the brush to. The assistant adds mask layers, but I don't know how to work with them. The brush just does nothing to anything/everything.
