Free new presets for Camera Raw
I’m delighted to see that author Jack Davis & the folks at onOne Software have teamed up to release more than 100 presets designed to work in Adobe Camera Raw. Available previously for Lightroom, the set of presets has been expanded and refined for Camera Raw. According to the site,
PhotoPresets with One-Click WOW! tackle only one development parameter at a time allowing you to optimize your image at each step to create the look you really want without sacrificing any one quality. You start with adjusting your images color and tone and then add effects like black and white conversions, tinting, split-toning and vignetting.
Good training for scripting Photoshop
At Photoshop World on Friday, Jeff Tranberry & Tom Ruark from Photoshop engineering presented a very popular four-hour session on scripting Photoshop. Despite having printed out 150 copies of their training hand-outs, they found that the pile disappeared very quickly. A number of attendees asked me for info on where they could find the materials, so I’m pleased to report that Jeff has posted them on his Web site. The info (freely downloadable by anyone) ranges from basic to more advanced & includes a number of sample scripts.
Jeff notes that people can ask questions via his feedback form. For additional resources, he points out Deke McClelland’s Photoshop CS2 Actions and Automation title (6.5 hours of video training from Lynda.com) and Chandler McWilliams’s Adobe Scripting title.
