Display archivesTutorial: multiple artboards in Photoshop

December 20th, 2015
In the recent update of Photoshop CC 2015, Adobe introduced multiple artboards. You can now have as many artboards as you want in the same file, perhaps for multiple versions of a design. I just published a thorough tutorial on the feature in my Mastering Photoshop Layers course on Udemy. If you already purchased this course, you immediately have access to the new lesson at no additional cost. So happy holidays!

Display archivesAfter Effects tip: move the in-point or out-point of a layer

October 5th, 2015
I just discovered a great tip for After Effects: let’s say you pasted a layer from one composition to another, and the layer is very far away from the CTI, which you’re probably looking at. Rather than zooming out, scrolling, pushing, etc, and rather than manually typing the time code for the in-point in the layer, just press “[" (the left square bracket key). That moves the layer, so the in-point is at the CTI. Alternatively, press "]” (the right square bracket key) to move the out-point of the layer to the CTI. In either case, the duration of the layer will remain unchanged.
