These tricks are really great, i've been taking photoshop classes for the past 2 years as part of a photography degree, i've learned more in one afternoon doing your tricks than from that class in the past two years. Is it possible do cover colour management and colour profiles soon?

Wow, what a compliment! I'm so glad your getting so much out of the tricks.

Color management and color profiles would be a great subject for the podcast. I will definitely look into putting one together.

Thanks again listening,
Kent

I'm an art student with no previous photoshop experience and I really am getting a lot out of your tricks. Thanks.

I do enjoy your podcasts, but in this episode there was an error:

At around the 4:51 mark of the podcast you say to "drag the slider that says Hue next to it" when you meant to say "drag the slider that says Saturation next to it".

Keep up the good work

Your podcast is fantastic! It's kind of freaky, almost, because you sound like someone I knew from high school... Anyway, this was my favorite trick of yours. It made my non-artistic picture look so nice. Very exciting.

Many thanks for the fine tricks. Do you think you can advise what type of photo these tricks work best for i.e. outdoor landscapes, people shots, etc. Could be helpful for some, oh and myself.

Thanks again. Great instruction.

YIEKS! I did make a mistake in this show. Thanks for pointing it out. It was supposed to be saturation not hue.

I'd guess that this particular trick would work best with landscapes, but i could see it working with portraits too. Since this trick is non-destructive, you can always give it a shot and on any photo to see how it looks.

Thanks for all the great comments,

This is an excellent trick. I had to listen to it a couple of times and then check out the screen shots on the website, but it has fantastic results. This is an episode that would benefit from a video podcast!
