I've finally got round to doing some PC maintenance, clearing out junk, unused software and archiving photos. Part of this was to try and stop Adobe Creative Cloud from asking me to update and install software, notably Photoshop, which I don't have......or as it turns out, I do!!
I have a monthly subscription for Lightroom (£8.50 ish) and thought that was all it paid for. It turns out that also gets me Photoshop, too!
I suppose I could look at it in terms of over-paying for Lightroom, but the monthly cost of £8.50 to have Lightroom continuously updated to latest version is absolutely fine by me, so Photoshop is then a bonus on top.
Anyone else had a hidden surprise in something you've paid for?
But then I should ask.....any recommended tutorials for Photoshop out there?!!?? Haven't a clue how to use it!
Welcome to the world of Photoshop, The basics are simple so just get stuck in. Layers may be your major stumbling block, so have a look here Photoshop layers also Lynda.com can be invaluable and a lot of it is free lynda.com. If you have a problem the web is full of info on photoshop.
Just a small point on buying PC mags,. you will spend a small fortune on mags, when it's all free on the Web.
On the have you had a surprise. Months ago I lost a valuable add-on to Photoshop. This was the Nik Collection an 'Add On' to Pkotoshop supplied by Google. On an early update to Win 10 I lost this program. Contacting Google they said they had no details of my ever buying it. So far mainly due to winter I've not got around to re-purchasing the program. Imagine my delight when two days ago I emailed google regarding the Nik Collection which is on special offer in the States. Low and behold they sent me the full program.
In case you are interested this is an excellent add-on to Photoshop and also Lightroom and is downloadable as a trial
Would you like another suprise Google are giving away Nik Software it initialy cost over £100 and you can now have it for free as a plug-in for Photoshop and Lightroom. It'a plug-in that's so good there;s no way i would be without it. Nik Software
I was pleasantly surprised when I bought some discs at Barnardo's. One was Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0 with serial number. 10 items for £4.90 special offer currently in all of their outlets. [Glasgow]
