In Topic: Layer Row Height

09 September 2012 - 10:40 AM

In CS6, the Panel Options for the layer panel allows you to change the size of the thumbnail, which makes the pallet rows taller. Is that what you are looking for? There is a tiny icon, a downward arrow head followed by four horizontal lines, at the upper right of the layers pallet. Click it, choose "Panel Options", and then select the thumbnail size. (I'll attach a screen shot of the the button.)

As a cs5 owner, you can get the first year for $29.95/month...It sounds like a no-brainier to me... :)

I got an offer to join Adobe Creative Cloud. I don't know anything about it or how it works. It appears to be a subscripion, but for what? Has anyone done this and do you like it?

The subscription is $49-ish a month, and gives you access to the latest version of all of the Adobe products (Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, Lightroom, Premier, After Effects, etc.), via download. I am a subscriber, and use Photoshop, Illustrator, and Lightroom. For me, it works because, while I can afford $50 a month, I never seem to be able to come up with $700 all at once for Photoshop. Adobe also has a "cloud" which is online storage for your PSD, etc. files, and access to that comes along with the subscription.

You do have to download the software; if you have a slow internet connection that could take a while. If you only own one Adobe product (like Photoshop), then just buying it outright and upgrading it every year is going to be a bit cheaper than the subscription, and, of course, you don't have to update it. If you own/use two, the subscription is cheaper, again assuming you update regularly. You can install the software on two computers that you personally use (like a desktop and a laptop).

I love it; it works very well for me. YMMV.


In Topic: How Do I Make The "sweet" Word Again

I don't use PSE, but I did copy the below from an adobe forums on the topic:-----
Normally in photoshop elements, you know that to change the layer opacity you use the number keys.To change the fill opacity use the shift key plus a number key. In the history palette it should say Fill Opacity Change.

Another way to change the fill opacity in elements is with layer styles. there is a layer style set that says Visibility with three settings. Ghosted (50% fill), Hide (0% fill) and Show (100% fill).
