    Hi Nicole, thank you for this post. I have downloaded the Perfect Suite 9. I would like to know if you rebook on the On One Software covers the 9 version of the suite?
    I enjoy all of your posts and photographs. Thank you again.

    Hi, I understand that your product target here is OnOne but after watching the live hangout made back in November 2014 I see that Photoshop is also used in workflows so the question is “Out of the two softwares what one in your honest opinion gives the best results for masking out and in?” I ask because I own both CS6 and Suite 9 and want to do some CityScapes at dawn or dusk as shown by one of your Co host’s Matt Kloskowsk in his DVD about the subject of CityScapes. Many Thanks.

      It all depends on what is being masked (and who is doing the masking). I prefer onOne for things like the image used here, but there are instances I would go to Photoshop for other types of masking. onOne works really well when there is a distinct color different between the subject and area being masked out, so in those cases I turn to onOne.
