    Great show! There are times I have to edit pictures taken by others from a point and shoot camera or phone . Would be possible to show a tip on how to make the best of these type of pictures, when it comes on one’s way.
    Thank you.

    Love you shows and the tips you give.

    But would you up the volume? I have to turn up my speakers just a bit. I have iTuens turned up as high as it will go.

    Please keep up the good work.

    Hay Guys that was a great show. Thanks Cory I used your technique to bring three images of the moon over a building to create a really nice one.

    Thanks again all of you for a great show.


  25. That was a phenomenal episode guys! Great work as usually and I actually do use the default bubble pattern, not for bubbles but to make a cool effect. If you completely fill a layer with the bubbles pattern, then you add a spherize filter with -100 as the amount and repeat this a couple times. You create what I call the ridiculous speed effect(right before ludicrous speed, lol). I have used this effect many times and you can create it in a couple seconds.

  26. Dustin Ohman says:

    I particularly liked today’s tips. Good tricks guys. When can we get a photoshop GAL in the weather center? A little glam might boost the Neilsen ratings. The set is begining to remind me of a man cave so give the girls a chance.
