Thanks Greg, that was good.  I will try it again. 

Ganna -  I have taken blank 255,255,255 skies and pinned it.  Result was a constant blue throughout the sky.  It is not natural looking.

I tried hdr pano.  Has to be on a tripod.  kinda messy.  Get the best one done flat, then copy settings and do each.  Then save and then do pano.  But this one I used tilt shift.  I guess I could do focus bracketed hdr pano.  More software /hardware is a little slow when it comes to hdr.  Seven hdr&...

I have posted a few images here.  One problem I have is the sun.  Sometimes I shoot towards the sun and the sky goes white.  Duh.  In this pano, the only choice is early morning (too foggy) mid day terrible sun, evening a little better.  I tried 10 am.  The sky is light blue on the left and darker a...

I just installed PS CC without reinstalling CM.  So Mike's installation program was not a factor.  CC has a plugin folder by default, but no filter sub folder.  So, I copied the filter file from CS6 into a new subfolder filters.  It worked.  So. sorry about the bad typing.<br /><br />program fi...

Doug.

LR CC?  There is LR 5.2 when you get the CC you get the latest Lightroom Version.  In any case, Lightroom does not use CM.

I use ACR or Lightroom before CM.  The heavy lifting of color correction goes to CM.  Far superior product.  <br /><br />However....  most in badly exposed images or troubled images, I would use ACR twice with different exposures to do a one HDR.  I will sometimes help the image with a shadow or hig...

A help suggestion.  Every once and a while go over shortcuts.  PS and CM use keyboard shortcuts.  It is hard to absorb all at once and later your usage changes. 

I re-read my documentation at least once a year on my cameras and essential software.

Go to CM.<br /><br />Do mask, curve mask to taste.<br /><br />Click on save button (It looks like file folders)<br /><br />Cancel.<br /><br />Add mask to layer.<br /><br />Highlight mask and alt-click to make the screen white.<br /><br />Paste CM mask.  Control - V works (sometimes) or is it file or...

Heck, I really miss the sportfinder!  It was a pentaprism replacement that allowed the back screen to swivel up.  On a Canon F-1.  Great camera, I miss it.

I do not miss eye controlled focus.  It did not work for me.

Thanks again Greg.

Lizard tail sort of equals highlight shadows?

Apply red channel inverted to the mask and blur, then lizard tail sort of equals Bigger hanmmer? 

Got my new monitor!  Nice.  I will fool around for a while then post.
