Now that Photoshop CC is shipping, be sure to check out this episode on Adobe TV, (Adobe Photoshop: Favorite Features for Photographers), where Julieanne will demonstrate her top 5 favorite features in Photoshop CC including the new Upright perspective correction, Radial Filter, and Advanced Healing Brush features in Adobe Camera Raw 8, Image Upsampling and Smart Sharpening, Live Shapes for Rounded Rectangles, and Camera Shake Reduction. (repost)
If you own Photoshop CS6 and are moving to Photoshop CC, you might also want to watch this video (Julieanne’s Top 5 Features for Photographers in Photoshop 13.1), to learn about the new features that were added to Photoshop 13.1 (released back in December 2012 for Creative Cloud Members).

In this episode of The Complete Picture (Converting Images to Black and White), Julieanne demonstrates the best way to convert images to Black and White as well as how to save presets to increase your productivity. Note: although this video was recorded in Lightroom, the same techniques are available in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6. Click here to download the presets for Lightroom 4 (JKost Black & White.zip) and Photoshop CS6 (PS_JKost Black White.zip).
Original Image, Default B/W Mix, Auto B/W Mix, Portrait B/W Mix +ROY
B/W Sat-100, B/W Sat-100 Lum+ROYP, B/W Sat -75 Vintage Look
Note: The preset names differ slightly for Photoshop and Lightroom as ACR does not support folders in the Presets tab and I wanted all of the Black and White presets grouped together.
To install: download and unzip the presets for Lightroom/Photoshop (link above) and place them in the following location:
• Mac (user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Mac(user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Camera Raw /Settings (put the presets loose in the Settings folder – not in a subfolder)
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings
Note: If you are on a Mac running Lion, the (user)/Library folder is hidden by default. To reveal it, hold the Option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.
