Re: Blending multiple images

Rex
 

Gentlemen,

Thanks for the replies.

I don't have the new book yet but based upon the fact that I bought Canyon Conundrum only a few years ago, I imagine that I will buy the new one in a few years time!

I am already familiar with blending layers but figured there was some magical / mysterious method of merging versions of the same image rather then as explained.

Future compatibility has nothing to do with the cloud announcement. It has to do with the fact that one way or another, there are going to be future versions of Photoshop, with unknown capabilities and incompatibilities. No matter what third-party plug-in, extension or add-on you have, nobody can guarantee that it will work in any future version, until they get a shipping copy of that version to test. Same way with OS.

If I understand Giuliana's post correctly, she is suggesting that the panel will probably work, with some modification, in the CC version of Photoshop that is now scheduled for release in June. But again, until the shipping version is finalized no one will know for sure.

1) Is it working with the current cloud variant of Photoshop 6.x?
Yes.

2) My understanding of the cloud service is that the program still runs on your computer, the licensing turns it off promptly if the subscription lapses, and Adobe ships frequent updates. Photoshop updates raise the spector of surprise incompatibilities with add-ons. Should this be a concern and has Adobe addressed this with developers?
If Adobe disables Photoshop then it doesn't matter what plug-ins you have. All new versions of Photoshop have had some difficulties with existing third-party products. I haven't seen how Adobe treats its developers in a decade or so, back then they treated them pretty well IMHO. I don't know whether that is still the situation and I doubt that anyone would say otherwise publicly, because nobody wants to cheese them off.

Creative Cloud - Photoshop in, Lightroom not

Michael Jahn
 

I saw this today on John Nacks blog - Winston Hendrickson talks about why Lightroom isn't going subscription-only while Photoshop is, where he acknowledges that Creative Cloud doesn't (yet) offer a lot of interesting photography-specific services, and more in a short interview with DP Review.

Re: Is the PPW Panel's future "cloudy"

Hi Joe

All considerations made by Davide are correct, I just add some more news in reference to the PPW panel .

For the moment, I can definitely say that the panel will work, as it is now, on all the CS6 versions.

I can't say what problems I may face for the final and public release of PS CC but as everyone knows we are willing and daring climbers and not let ourselves be intimidated by the slope of the mountain. Some would say *steeper is better* and I like challenges ;-).

At the moment Adobe hasn't yet released the Configurator CC version and I hope will be made available within a short time. If this does not happen I have already studied the solution to release a PPW working version that can be installed on PS CC as standalone installation and I'm waiting for testing through AEM CC.

I'm working also on the version that will be available through Adobe Exchange panel for both CS6 and CC and that will live on the cloud.

For the time being the first tests performed with my other extensions (CPT and False Profile) that are actually delivered for CS6 as standalone installer and also as cloud service (Adobe Exchange panel) inside Photoshop CS6 all seems to work well even for PS CC.

The PPW cloud version and the standalone version (if possible) for PS CC are on the way to be cooked .....we will see whether they will be good to eat when ready!

Best regards
Giuliana

Re: It's all in the cloud

Henry Davis
 

Yet Dan and others have been able to make use of what comes in the
box. I agree that it could be made better for power users but this
might overwhelm the typical user.

Remembering back to the evolution of separation methods it makes me
wonder how much effort the core Photoshop team at Adobe puts toward
understanding and weighing their attention to different user groups
(e.g. printers, photographers, website builders etc.)

As for the cloud/subscription business angle, I'm sure my dislike for
it makes me a dinosaur in the eyes of the forward-thinking whiz kids
at corporate Adobe. It's sort of like the feeling I had watching
Photoshop move away from its first users (who were mostly in print
shops).

The scheme works until it doesn't work - no connection, replacing bum
hard drive, getting a new machine etc. But, it needs to work every
time you need it - without the slightest hitch.

New book: errata (?)

Let's see if Dan agrees:

- Pag. 148: caption of Fig. 6.3. To be more precise, the last two images have also Color Boost, as stated in the text.

- Pag. 291: I think that Dan wrote the new book before the last Italian political elections, so perhaps he'll have soon to revise Alessandro's statement about Silvio. By the way, does the fib refer to the Arno or to Silvio? :-)

- Pag. 309, right column, last line: a typo? "were" not "wer"

- Pag. 450 Index: L channel, characteristics of, 97, 102... Are you sure about those two pages?

- Pag. xxvii, Florentine steak. Sorry, I agree with Alessandro, that's an American Florentine steak. Why? well, I am Italian AND from Florence!

When to remove noise (alternate take)

Francis Corvin
 

In the light of the recent discussions regarding noise removal, I was
wondering if the subject was really appropriately dealt with through
RGB channel noise reduction..

As a photographer, I deal with noise at the outset, i.e., when
decoding the RAW picture and turning it into a TIF.

I wonder whether we have the slightest chance, when dealing with RGB
channels, to do a better job than DxO, Nikon Capture, Canon DPP or
Camera Raw (to cite only the most widespread):
- Noise processing algorithms are getting increasingly sophisticated
and keep evolving
- When dealing with RAW files, noise processing software has access to
richer signal: conversion to TIF causes irreversible loss of information
- Additionally, RAW converters also have access to a host of
additional information (e.g., has dark-frame subtraction already occurred)

Standing at the relatively unskilled end of the operator spectrum, I
have a clear view on where it is *not* useful for me to spend my time
;). But the question is for skilled operators (and by extension
unskilled people like me who have to chose in which direction to
develop their skills): if one of the key benefits of Dan's workflow is
speed, why spend time on a tricky process when that can (and probably
should, and probably is) be done when converting the RAW?

Re: Is the PPW Panel's future "cloudy"

Davide Barranca
 

With Adobe's recent announcement that they are dropping uncloudy CS products I am concerned about the PPW Panel and Photoshop V.whatever. Do I need to be?
Time will tell, Joe - I'm afraid that's the only reasonable answer so far.
At the MAX conference there are a couple of speeches related to extensions (today or tomorrow I guess) so I'm eagerly waiting to know what we should expect.

1) Is it working with the current cloud variant of Photoshop 6.x?
Yes. They are just the same, perpetual product and creative cloud one, there's a difference in the numbering convention (13.0.x vs. 13.1.x) but that's all.

2) My understanding of the cloud service is that the program still runs on your computer, the licensing turns it off promptly if the subscription lapses
Today, you've 99 days of offline work (for annual plans + 7 days grace period) then you've got to go online for validation. 30 days for monthly plan. These numbers may be subject to change, who knows.

and Adobe ships frequent updates.
I really appreciate your optimism Joe.

Photoshop updates raise the spector of surprise incompatibilities with add-ons. Should this be a concern and has Adobe addressed this with developers?
As far as I can tell, PS CC has "just" moved the folder where Extensions files are deployed, so there shouldn't be compatibility issues (but Giuliana has the latest word on the subject of course).
True, scripting and extensions have had compatibility problems, but as a platform they're more robust now compared to CS4 (it's an unfair comparison, I know, it was bug-ville).

While Configurator panels could be different beasts because of config files, my flash panels ported flawlessly to CC (stroke of luck?) while I've had problems with scripting. Go figure.

To summarize, it really depends on the resources Adobe will put fixing problems and implementing new architectures for the extensibility layer.
While I'm not very much optimistic for the former (we still wait for a bugfix to a PS crash when extensions open secondary windows, but the PS CC release temporarily halted CS6 development), it may appear something new on the latter, hopefully.

How much easy will be the devs life in the future, is a question I'd like to have the answer for myself too :-)

I wouldn't be that much explicit Hector, yet my understanding is that Adobe is more interested in providing "smart, complex tools for average users" rather than the opposite. Let me explain, because stated like that it can lead to misunderstandings.

There's a good deal of technology embedded in PS - take Camera Raw as an example. ACR is a very complex tool, architecturally speaking. It embeds the recent Local Laplacian filtering by Sylvain Paris (which is the core of the revised Clarity algorithm and I strongly suspect is involved in the dynamic range control in the new set of sliders for Process 2012 too, see here: http://people.csail.mit.edu/sparis/publi/2011/siggraph/).

Photoshop, which desperately needs a better blurring algorithm, has been left without it. They could have been implementing it, but I guess pencil pushers had no reason to accord resources to that kind of development (another blurring filter? there's plenty of'em).

So while the technology is available, Adobe management is more willing to build ready-made, complex tools (as ACR, the Shake Reduction, etc) rather than making available those algorithms as "dumb-but-powerful" building blocks for us to put together our own workflows and complex tools - fitting our needs.

Take the Sharpening action by Dan in the PPW. I don't want a similar Adobe's provided "SuperSharpeningWoohoo Filter" - make us have the latest algorithms as building blocks to let Dan put together his own Sharpening workflow more effectively.

That said, I understand that their approach is perfectly reasonable - as a user base, those willing to play LEGO with filters are the minority. So I've rescaled my expectations.

Re: It's all in the cloud

The problem with adobe is...
they buy out the competition as in the past like 'digital darkroom' &
'photostyler'
and in turn they kill innovation.

So adobe spends twenty years doing nothing.

Dan Margulis has to come up with a 'MMM' PPW, panels and color boost
tricks that adobe is not interested in. Adobe
is not interested in innovation, just longevity. That means ver.1.00,
1.001, 1.002 etc.

The rest of us has to invent new ways of doing things with adobe's
archaic tools. Adobe is 20 years behind the times.

If in the past good products led to more upgrade revenues and

Which is generally speaking the only thing consumers can do: either
they buy something or they don't buy it.

Besides the fact Photoshop is in the lucky position of lacking an
actual competitor (that eliminates the option: "buy something else"),
users may (should?) feel like they've kind of lost a degree of
freedom. To pay or to pay - or not to play. Adobe is compensating that
with a fatter offer, time will say whether the user base will like it
or not.

IMHO, it's rather beneficial that Adobe has undertaken the switch to
the SaaS paradigm so quickly - it will help the company focalizing the
efforts.

As a side effect, I'd say that this sudden switch will leave room for
new competitor products growth: that may fill the gaps Adobe has
created making the apps lineup subscription only (clearly pushing away
some professionals which needs don't fit the scheme).
Competition always leads to better software, which is what we're
interested into, eventually - whether it will be Adobe's or someone

OK, what do you think, are the above a sufficiently low-profile

Re: Blending multiple images

Doug Schaefer writes,

If I have 2 files to blend, does it matter which one is on top?
No, if you were going to use Luminosity mode when #1 was on top, use its inverse, Color mode, when #2 is on top, and vice versa.

If you were going to use a certain layer mask when #1 was on top, invert it if #2 is on top. Same result in all cases.

If three or more layers/files/images to blend, How does one determine which to start with and which is next, and next, and so on?
By guess and by gosh. At least, that's the way I did it. In the video involving eight versions of the swan, I stacked in the chronological order in which each version was made.

I can guess I can decide which part of which I like to use and go from there. But is there a more "scientific" way?
Not that I know of, which doesn't mean that an optimal method doesn't exist.

It's all in the cloud

Denton Taylor
 

Ah, here's more! New Photoshop!

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- At Adobe MAX, The
Creativity Conference, Adobe
(ADBE:$46.70,00$-0.31,00-0.66%) today announced
Adobe® Photoshop® CC as part of a major update to
Adobe Creative Cloud™ (see separate press
release). Photoshop CC pushes the boundaries of
possibility, offering a powerful new creative
process, legendary imaging magic, and greater
creative freedom with new tools and workflows.
Adobe Photoshop CC will be available, exclusively
to Creative Cloud members, in June.
Adobe’s desktop apps, including Photoshop, were
previously known as Creative Suite® (CS), and
will now be branded CC to reflect that they are
an integral part of Creative Cloud and have been
reinvented to support a more intuitive, connected
way of creating. Photoshop CC includes a wide
range of innovative enhancements, including new
image deblurring and sharpening features to
improve design workflows, and new Camera Raw
capabilities. This update combines Photoshop
standard and Photoshop Extended features to
deliver greater accessibility to 3D tools and
image analysis, while Creative Cloud integration
offers flexible collaboration and sharing capabilities.
“With the ability to quickly deliver new
innovations, we’re empowering photographers and
creatives to push the boundaries in digital
imaging and design,” said Winston Hendrickson,
vice president of products, Creative Media
Solutions, Adobe. “Our customers will no longer
have to wait 18 to 24 months to access new
Photoshop innovation. When a new Photoshop
feature is ready – whether it’s the next Healing
Brush or something as mind-blowing as Content
Aware Fill – we’ll deliver it via Creative Cloud.”
New Features in Photoshop CC
Photoshop CC brings a wide range of new features
and enhancements designed to unleash creativity
and boost efficiency whether perfecting
photographs, designing for online and offline
media, creating 3D artwork or shooting video.
A fleet of new tools introduce the most advanced
deblurring and sharpening technologies to date.
The new Camera Shake Reduction tool analyzes and
corrects for blur from camera movement to produce
a better image. The all-new Smart Sharpen tool
uses adaptive sharpening algorithms to minimize
noise and halo effects while producing
high-quality results. With intelligent upsampling
users can increase the size of an image – large
enough for a billboard – without pixelating the image.
Adobe Camera Raw 8 brings three new photo-editing
capabilities to Photoshop CC. The Advanced
Healing brush allows photographers to “heal” or
“patch” images with a brush stroke instead of a
circular area. The new Radial Gradient offers
powerful controls to draw attention to the focus
of an image without applying a standard vignette,
and the Upright tool automatically straightens
horizons and applies perspective corrections
without distorting the image. Camera Raw edits can also be made to any layer or file within Photoshop CC.
For designers, improvements to rounded rectangles
add the ability to adjust corner radii at any
time. Users can also now select multiple paths,
shapes and vectors at once, providing a faster,
easier workflow for working with multiple objects.
In previous releases, Adobe Photoshop Extended
was released as a separate application comprising
all Photoshop features as well as 3D and image
analysis capabilities. Beginning with Photoshop
CC, all Photoshop Extended features will be
integrated within one application, providing all
users with advanced capabilities for 3D image editing and image analysis.
Photoshop CC is the first Adobe desktop app to
include the ability to post files directly to
Behance from within the application, showcasing
work immediately and integrating peer feedback
into the creative process. Behance is the world’s
leading online creative community, with over 1.4 million members.
Photoshop CC includes all the Photoshop feature
innovation delivered exclusively to Creative
Cloud members over the last year, including:
Smart Object support for Blur Gallery and Liquify
effects, Conditional Actions, and CSS support for faster web design.
Adobe is also previewing a new workflow from
Photoshop CC to Edge Reflow CC that will enable
creatives to build web designs in Photoshop that
can easily be turned into responsive websites,
viewable across devices. Adobe expects to update
Photoshop CC with this new capability this
summer, underscoring the constant steam of
innovation delivered to Creative Cloud members.
“I capture thousands of images for my 'Day to
Night' projects and am always looking to improve
my creative process,” said Stephen Wilkes, an
award-winning photographer, whose work has
appeared in Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated,
Time, Life Magazine, and The New York Times
Magazine. “With Photoshop as part of Adobe's
Creative Cloud, I don't have to wait every year
for a new set of tools and features, like Smart
Sharpen and the new upsampling capabilities, to help achieve my vision. I'm also excited about
the integration with Behance. As a photographer,
the ability to connect to a global community of
artists, art directors, and designers is very inspiring.”
