    Thanks for doing these. I live in Lightroom so any help getting better with PS is appreciated. One bite at a time is my speed.

    Nice one! I’d forgotten about the distortion correction in the crop tool (been too long since I’ve used Photoshop to do basic edits!) :-)

    I love the second tip- I sometimes need it, and as a Lightroom user, never new such a tool existed in Photoshop. Thanks.
