Quiet Moments – My Year in Review

I’ve created a slideshow as a simple way to look back at my year through the images that I’ve posted using Lightroom mobile to my Instagram account. I find this yearly exercise yields interesting insights about where I am in my life and allows me to reflect upon the places that I’ve gone and the experiences that I’ve had. I would strongly encourage you to create a collection of your own images for the year to see the path that you followed in 2015.

Working with the Libraries Panel in Photoshop CC

With the addition of linked Smart Objects, Creative Cloud Libraries are now more powerful than ever. In this video, Julieanne will demonstrate the Libraries panel’s new features and enhancements including sharing assets using linked Smart Objects as well as create a Library from a document in a single click in the November release of Photoshop CC 2015.

Note: As I mention in the video, Option (Mac) -dragging | Alt (Win) -dragging a graphic from the Libraries panel will place it into the document without linking to the the Creative Cloud Library (allowing you to work  the same way as in previous versions).
