    Thanks again Anthony for this video which I really needed. For years I have had the LR/PS combo package, but all of my work was done in LR. The only time I ventured into PS was to use the removal tools. For some reason LR has never been able to duplicate them. I'll now go to your beginners' videos and see if I can use PS more widely in the future.

    R.E. the tool well – Hi Anthony. I'm having problems in that I do not see a tool tip or "rich" tool tip when I hover over a tool icon. In Preferences, the "show tool tips" and the "rich tool tips" is checked. its driving me crazy. I am in the Photography workspace. Any ideas? (i have also unchecked and rechecked these two items and restarted PS to no avail),

    Hi Anthony, really useful introduction to PS. I was very cautious in entering PS coming from Lr but this simple tutorial made the first steps very clear. Thanks!!!!

    Never buying into a franchise at over £120 a year for the photo package, Affinity photo is the way to go, i got mine with a coupon code for £40. And there's plenty Raw editors too that are just as good as Lightroom, without the yearly subscription.

    Thanks Anthony for this video. I'm trying to get my head around Photoshop and this was a great help to me. I do my editing in Lightroom and when I select " edit in" Photoshop it opens Adobe Camera Raw by default. Is there a way to bypass Camera Raw and go straight from Lightroom to Photoshop?
    Regards

    Any idea why when I try and open a number of files as layers in PS from Lightroom only 2or 3 Of 6 or 7 will open and one by itself. The rest don’t open. Latest PS and LR on MacBook running Catalina. Thanks

    Thanks Anthony, always helpful tips. The handsome guy in the removing imperfections section looks an awful lot like his dad 😬. Keep up the great work!

    I think that woman is actually the chair of the department of surgery, who commissioned the kitchen renovation, rather than the carpenter.

    I'm glad you made this video. Most people making Ps. videos assume the viewer knows all this stuff. It's frustrating. I figured out how to do more of the intermediate stuff, but not the basic. Accordingly, I do the basic editing in ON1 2020, the move to Ps.

    Great video as usual. I'm not exactly a beginner, somewhere in the middle I suppose, but loving Photoshop.
    The couple of tips you gave on using Camera Raw within Ps, were very helpful.
    Already subscribed…keep up the good work.
