Fine Art Border Tools Plugin for Adobe Photoshop Video (Podcast 745)

Fine Art Border Tools Plugin for Adobe Photoshop Video (Podcast 745)


Visit Library for MBP Pro eBooks

Just a short audio episode today to let you know that I’ve just released a video to walk you through how you can use my new MBP Fine Art Border Tools plugin for Adobe Photoshop to resize and add borders for Web and Print, as well as adding a watermark. I’ve just released an update that enables you to now save multiple watermark image files and easily switch between them, improving the flexibility of the plugin, so check out that update if you’ve already bought FAB Tools. I also include a demonstration of how you can layout and print images on roll media or larger sheet media to save money on stocking lots of smaller media sizes, and we trim them in two different ways as well.

I’ve embedded the video below, so please check that out, and if you’d like to pick up a copy of this new plugin, you can buy it from the Adobe Exchange Creative Cloud marketplace here.

NextGEN Pro Gallery Review and Walkthrough (Podcast 583)

NextGEN Pro Gallery Review and Walkthrough (Podcast 583)

This week I’ve created a video to review and walk you through the NextGEN PRO gallery that I have recently implemented on my web site. As you’ll see, it isn’t perfect, but it’s a very feature rich gallery and lightbox solution. With e-commerce built right in, it will save a lot of time as we can configure pricing and the types of products available on a high level and just assign them to the entire gallery. It’s also possible to apply different settings to individual images, as we’ll see in the video.

The podcast audio for this week is a short introduction to let you know about the video, but I also have a message from a gentleman named Curtis Cunningham about his new “Wonderful World of White” Kickstarter project, which I’ve inserted into the audio too. So please do listen to that with the above audio player. You can see details on Curtis’ web site and on Kickstarter.

Please do check out my video below though, as I get into NextGEN in all its glory, and as you’ll see, it’s although I’m happy with it, it’s not without its faults, which granted may be caused by my server, but everything else is running fine. You can check out the resulting galleries as I’m now using NextGEN to serve up my still photography portfolios here.

If you are interested, you can check out and buy NextGEN PRO here: https://www.imagely.com/wordpress-gallery-plugin/nextgen-pro/

Do let me know how you get on in the comments below, and I hope you run into fewer issues than I seem to be seeing.

Podcast 297 : Silver Efex Pro 2 Walkthrough & New Features

Podcast 297 : Silver Efex Pro 2 Walkthrough & New Features

Nik Software improved on perfection when they updated Silver Efex Pro to Silver Efex Pro 2, and today here’s a video Podcast to take a look at how to use this amazing black and white conversion plugin and touch on some of the new features.

You can also view the embedded video right here on your iPad, thanks to a recent Vimeo update!

Don’t forget to hit the full-screen button Full-Screen Button in the video window to view the video, erm, full-screen. If the full-screen button isn’t available, click on the Vimeo link and go full-screen from there.

Note that there is an iPod/iPhone version of this video in iTunes, but when watching on a computer, the video above is better.

One thing I forgot to touch on is that you can also add a vignette right there in Silver Efex Pro 2. I did touch on this in my video last year, so take a look at that too if you are interested.

Don’t forget that if you decide to buy Silver Efex Pro 2 or any of the plugins from Nik Software, use the code MBP15 for a 15% discount on your purchase.
