Questions & Answers: Episode 8

This is episode eight of a video series where I answer some of the questions I received during the week.

In this episode, I answer three different Photoshop related questions.

1.) In Episode 2 of your getting started in Photoshop series, is there a way to tone the reflections on the floor of the church windows?
2.) When I bring two images into Photoshop to swap out a sky, they’re of different sizes. Why?
3.) Some of the filters in my Photoshop are grayed out. Why?
