  2. Marko says:

    Thanks guys!
    How about a special add-on PSUTV episode?
    Like NIK vs. Onone…

  3. Miguel West says:

    Great show today guys! As a student of digital media, I think these tips and tutorials are great! Can I ask for some selection tips, maybe with the masking tool? Thanks a lot! Keep up the good work!

    Hey Dave you have been teaching some good masking lessons in the past, but I am still having problems removing backgrounds from subject with fine details like hairs without using a stylus tool. Please show something on masking.

    Good info!

  8. Ryo says:

    I would like Happy Episode 291 Prize

  9. Evan Rasmussen says:

    No matter what I do, the refine edge tool does not work as expected. You could spend an entire session just going over refine edge problems and how to work around them.

  10. Janet says:

    Great show! Would like to see a tutorial on getting your tool presets and brushes in order. I feel like everything I make is scattered around and I have to search. And how do I find them in their folders so I can copy them into a back up.
