Retina Display Support and Photoshop CS6

I’m hoping to clear up some confusion with regards to Retina display support in Photoshop CS6. In December,  Adobe released Photoshop update version 13.0.3 (for Mac perpetual customers) and version 13.1.1 (for Creative Cloud members, Mac and Windows). So, if you have PSCS6 – through either the perpetual (“box copy”) or Adobe Creative Cloud membership (“subscription”), and you run the updater, you will have Retina support.  Here’s how to get the update:

1. In Photoshop, choose Help > Updates.

2. The Adobe Application Manager will launch. Select Adobe Photoshop CS6 and choose Update.

How to confirm that the Update worked

1. In Photoshop, choose Help > About Photoshop (Win), or Photoshop > About Photoshop (Mac)

2. For Mac perpetual customers, the version at the top should be Version: 13.0.3

3. For Win/Mac Creative Cloud members, the version at the top should be Version: 13.1.1

If you have a Creative Cloud membership (subscription),  there are additional features in Photoshop version 13.03. Click here to watch my Top 5 Features for Photographers in Photoshop 13.1 (Exclusively for Creative Cloud).

Adobe Photoshop CS6 for Photographers

B&H Photo and Video was kind enough to let me do a live presentation on Photoshop CS6 for their customers when I was in New York last month. Not only that, they recorded it and posted it to their site! Now I know that a 2 hour presentation is going to take a lot of effort to watch if you have a short attention span, but I think it’s worth it if you want to know what’s new in Photoshop CS6 for Photographers! Click here to view the seminar.

Thank you for making this happen Deborah and the B&H team!

Video Tutorial – Toning Black and White Photographs

In this episode of The Complete Picture (Toning Black and White Photographs in Lightroom 4 ), Julieanne explains the best way to add a color tone to an image using the Split Tone and Tone Curve panels as well as demonstrates how to save presets to increase your productivity.

Single Color Toning

Single Color Toning using the Split Tone panel. Examples include the Original Auto B/W Mix, Antique, Blue, Mustard, Sepia Midtones, Sepia Shadows, Blue, Cyan, Green, Magenta, Orange, Purple, Red, and Yellow presets.

Although this video was recorded in Lightroom, the same techniques are available in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6. Click to download the Toning presets for Lightroom 4 (JKost_Toning.zip)  and Photoshop CS6 (PS_JKost Toning.zip).

Note: here is an updated version of the Toning Presets for Lightroom 4 (Windows versions)JKostToningWin. I had use and asterisk in the file names which has now been changed to “0_” to keep the “reset” presets at the top of the list.

Color Toning using the Split Tone and Tone Curve panels. Examples include the Original Auto B/W Mix, Coffee Stain, Cyan/Yellow, Forest Horror, Orange/Yellow, Red/Cyan, Warm Strong, Warm Medium, Warm Subtle, Stark Winter, Warm Chocolate, and Weathered Marble presets.

To install: download and unzip the presets for Lightroom 4 or Photoshop CS6 (above) and place them in the following location:

Lightroom

• Mac (user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets

• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets

Photoshop

• Mac(user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Camera Raw / Settings

• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings

If you are on a Mac running Lion, the Library menu is hidden by default. To reveal it, hold the option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.

Note: The preset names differ slightly for each product as ACR does not support folders in the Presets tab and I wanted similar presets grouped together.
