    Well, I like this show and the lessons, but why the episodes are so large to view/download?

  2. Henrik says:

    Thx. guys….
    I would like to win… :-)

    Pete, did you look at my answer to episode 332 “creating a diagonal pattern”…?

    • Paul Miller says:

      Another great segment on Photoshop 3D.

      I wish my 2011 MacBookPro supported the 3D features in photoshop. When Adobe updates their products do you guys run out and buy new Macs?

      Apparently the on board graphics card in my Mac is not capable of supporting 3D. Can’t run out and buy a new card.

      Does anyone know of a driver?

    Fun and educational as always! I thought it was odd that on the bump map the seams and laces went horizontally but they showed up vertically on the football. Thanks for the help

  20. Sam S. says:

    Great show.

  21. Thomas Barr says:

    The iTunes version of the episode gets stuck in the Photoshop World commerical (around 37:00) and remains there until the video ends. Got to watch the end above.

  22. Chris Helms says:

    Great show again! It’s amazing what the current versions of Lightroom and Aperture can do with just one RAW format file. The information packed into that file is incredible and thank you to Serge for bringing that to warm 4GB of RAM light.

    See you next time!

  23. Robin says:

    Another great show!

  24. The FRENCH TIP blew me away! Wow. Just one file. COOL!

    COMPOSITE BOOK – Please!
    I want to learn more about it.

    Very useful tips. Since I don’t have Lightroom, though, it would be really helpful to know if LR tips work in Camera Raw as well (with work-arounds). Good show.
