Programme
Action!*
Get faster and faster with pre-recorded set of instructions for Photoshop.
You may have heard of Photoshop Actions before, but do you know all the tips and tricks? Never noticed - for example - that when you include "Save" in an action, it may overwrite previously saved files?
Learn from Stefano the strategies to avoid issues and discover some of the best actions available online.

It's not only History.
Track your steps in Photoshop and get more from History panel.
One more time… do you know that little menu on the top right of each Adobe panel? Well, another little world of possibilities hidden in a small icon. Learn how to use the History panel at 100% with Stefano Virgilli.

One PSD, many layouts.
Show many versions of the same file with the Layers Comps panel.
Few things are certain in life. One of them is that your boss / your client will ultimately change their mind about your design. So, if until today you have saved a Photoshop file for each layout version, it is time to change your workflow. No more file1.psd, file2.psd, file3.psd and so on. Stefano will show how to create multiple Photoshop layouts in 1 PSD file only.

Goodbye overexposure.
Save your pictures even when white is clipped to 255/255/255.
First of all, this will NOT work on all of the pictures. However, you will be able to rescue some of them. In particular, have you ever "lost" the wedding gown's decoration in a "flat white matte"? Stefano will show you how to create custom made shadows that can make the difference.*
