    Hi, Ben, I’ve just watched both of your recent lessons on Collections and found them very useful, thank you.

    I notice that in addition to using Collections extensively you also mention using Keywords so I was wondering if you had any lessons or guidance on when you use Keywords in preference or together with Collections. Thank you for your help. Regards, Ian.

  2. Gerald Vincent says: on Smoothness of Masks vs Selections

    Hello Ben, A couple of points to add. When there are strong colour/contrast adjustments that are required, 8 bit masks can be definitely susceptible to banding. On one image in which I encountered that I used Topaz Denoise AI on just the affected area and it did a superb job of eliminating visible colour banding. Secondly, with respect to your comments about the excellent Color Range command being 8 bit, if there is a pre-existing mask on the layer that you want to apply the selection to, including simply a blank mask, the Color Range selection won’t first appear as a marching ants selection but will directly apply itself to the mask, including overwriting any existing mask. So, could this mean that it’s working in a 16 bit mode when used in that fashion? Thanks again for the tutorial! Regards, Gerald

    Another great tutorial Ben, thank you. I have a windows 10 PC, when I go to “Save As” in Photoshop there is no check box that says “Embed Color Profile” . I do have a box that is checked that says “ICC Profile – Pro Photo RGB”, is this the same? If it isn’t where do I find “Embed Color Profile” .

      Same thing. Embed Color Profile really means embed ICC Color Profile, which in your case happens to be Pro Photo RGB, but might be Adobe RGB or sRGB on other images depending on their source.

    Playing catch up during lockdown V3 here in the UK. This is brilliant.

    Another great class to start of the New Year. Been with you since the beginning and I still learn something new after each lesson.
