What analytics parameters do you rely on to track the performance of your technical content?
At the STC India Conference earlier this month; my colleague, Vikrant Rai, and I presented a session that discussed some key content-related parameters. Here is the slidedeck:
The Photoshop Generator feature offers great flexibility in the ways you can rename layers/layer groups to specify size and quality parameters. Stepping beyond the recommendations in the Help article, this blog post looks at some valid variations that you can use while tagging layer/layer group names.
Before we begin, let’s look at the conventions followed in this blog post:
While specifying the size parameter, it’s OK to mix and match the supported units—px, cm, mm, and in.
If no unit is specified for a dimension, Photoshop assumes it to be px.
While specifying absolute sizes, you can use the ? wildcard in place of a dimension.
You can add a hyphen before the quality parameter (suffix) to make your layer/layer group names more readable.
That’s all for now! Hope you have fun using Generator and other exciting enhancements in the September 2013 release of Photoshop. In case you haven’t already reviewed the What’s New, here’s the link.

If you’ve played around with the camera shake reduction feature in Photoshop CC, you might have noticed it works best with decently lit still camera images having low noise. The following types of still images are particularly suitable for shake reduction:
In addition, shake reduction can help sharpen blurred text in images affected by camera motion.
Here’s the documentation for the feature.
If I had to put my finger on the Photoshop CC feature that comes closest to “magic”, I’d pick Camera Shake Reduction. For most users, it is the powerful tool that deblurs pictures that got ruined in a sudden shake of the camera. For some, it breathes life right back into memorable moments that can never be captured again. Magic.
