This confessional, purging exchange makes me SOOOO happy to see the masters weep. Gives the little folk reason to rejoice and continue to plod. Thanks. Now, get on the stick. Matt

I feel seriously bad about being seriously lazy. I am so far behind in that thing... Still making headway learning things, but not doing enough doing!!! But am at least putting some energy into Death Dealer..
Oh heck I’m behind too. And I don’t do the stuff the way I’m supposed to of course. And I’m sure I’ve forgotten 90% of what I’ve done. But it was good practice to work with elements I hated. I want you to suffer too!
Ha!!

About forgetting - I agree, same here. I think that is why it is important to keep Doing. The end result doesn't even have to be good, it just has to have the repetition of the proper process (to burn it in).

I Do ctrl-alt-shift-E (the move) automatically now without having to think what it is. In fact, I had to Do it just to be able to type it in, but I can now Do it automatically. Such is learning.. Do - pull back - refine, rinse and repeat.
Hey I know that one too! I call it COSE but it’s the same, I got it on auto pilot. I think I learned it first because it was such a godsend. But still struggling with selections, Blend If, gradient masks, channels, etc etc. One day...

Ah, the secrets of the masters, leaking out in the dead of night. What does COSE/CASE do? Matt

In Photoshop, it grabs up every layer including the one selected and all those beneath it and creates a new layer of them, but still allowing you to keep those layers intact in case you need to revisit them or even use one of them again. It provides a stop/start point that is invaluable when working on many-layered composites.

In short, it keeps the photographer from going nuts/tearing their hair out as they get lost within the layers.
