Lesson Info

Share for Commenting

We have a few new ways where we can communicate and collaborate with clients. So if you've made an image and you wanna send it to a client, but just to have them review it, you're not gonna give them the final image yet, and you just wanna hear their comments. What additional changes would they like you to make? And then you can interact with them. You can check off what they commented on, comment right back and all that kind of thing. Let's take a look at how it works in Photoshop. With an image open, I'm gonna go to the upper right where I find this bright blue share button. I actually wish it wasn't blue 'cause it's the only part of Photoshop's interface that's not for picking colors that's bright and vivid. But if I click on share, then it gives me a little bit of an explanation and just has a continue button. And now here it wants me to save this to Adobe's Creative Cloud. And I'm just gonna call this test because I wanna remember that it was used for this class. And I'm gonna cli...

ck save. So now after that's done saving, it's actually saving it to Adobe's cloud servers, then I can share it with someone. Once it's done uploading, then I can see the options for it. In the upper right is a gear icon. If I click on it, I can choose, if it's only people that I invite can access this, and therefore only people I type in their email addresses can access it. Or I can make it so anyone that gets the little link that I could put on a website or anywhere else, could get access to this. And what can they do? Can they comment? And can they save a copy of that image? I don't want them to be able to save the image. I want them to just be able to comment. But I wanna to do it where I just send a link and it's not just for specific people. Therefore, it can go to a bunch of people if I need it to. I'll hit the little left arrow here to go back. And now down at the bottom, this text has changed to tell me that anyone with the link will be able to change this image. I'm gonna click on the copy link choice, and it says copy to clipboard. Now, if I were to switch to a web browser, and I were to paste that link in, and let's take a look at what's loaded. First off, there's a special version of Photoshop where you can actually make edits right in your web browser. But that particular version is not supported by my browser, which is Safari. I'd have to switch to Chrome to use that. But for now I just wanna show you the commenting. So I'm gonna close that little bar that was there. So here I can see my image and up here it tells me my zoom percentage. I could zoom up to a 100% if I wanted or zoom out to whatever size I want. I'm gonna choose fit to screen. Then on the right side is where I can comment. And you're gonna find both a little pin and a little pencil. If I end up grabbing the pin, I can then move my mouse on top of the image, and I could click somewhere. Let's say this building over here. And I just click. Now I've told it where I'm gonna comment about. And on the right side is where I can type in my comment. (keyboard clacking) And I'll hit submit. And then it's going to send that over to Photoshop. So if I actually return to Photoshop right now and I still have that document open, well, if I come in here, I can open a window that is called comments. And it might take it a few moments, but eventually that comment will show up in here. And I'll see a pin in that area. But instead of waiting for it right now, I'm gonna go back to my browser to show you more. Let's say, I wanna brighten this area. So I'm gonna this time grab the pencil icon. And I'm gonna draw around the area that I think needs to be brightened. And then I can put in my comment. (keyboard clacking) And I'm gonna do one more area again. I'll use that pencil and I'm gonna draw right down here, and I'll today, retouch this out. (keyboard clacking) And hit submit. Then let's return to Photoshop. And, oh, I can see them now. If they don't show up here, I think you can click on this little cloud icon, kind of force it to refresh. But I can see who commented. And if that person did not have an Adobe ID, there was an area where you could type in their name. But I was signed in as me, so it automatically grabbed my name. And if I'd like to see these, I can click on this. And right down here is a little thing with an eyeball on it. If I click on that, it would hide those. Click on it again, it will show them. And so let's say that I made one of these changes. Maybe I retouched out this area down here. Let's hide this. And I'm just gonna go over here to my spot healing brush. And I'll make a quick change to that area. I'm not gonna try to be too precise, but I'll just do something that's visually obvious. Okay, then up here where I can say... Here it says retouch it out, I can choose reply. And I can say, (keyboard clacking) how's that? Hit submit. And if I were to return to that browser window or reopen that file from that link I originally used, I'd be able to see this particular comment. Well, since I've already changed that area, I don't wanna see that on here the whole time. So over here is a little checkbox called resolve. Well, I'll click that, and now that will disappear from my list. And it tells me it's been moved to resolved. I'll close that. And I could work through each one of these changes that were needed to be made and each time hitting resolve as I finished it until my entire list was cleared out. But then you might wanna look back and say, what have I resolved? So in the lower right, there's this little funnel icon. And if I click on it, I can show things that are resolved or things for particular days. Or if more than one person was commenting on, there'd be a list of people here. And I could see just comments from one particular person. But in this case I'm gonna choose resolved, so I can see that list once again. And I could just turn it back off or hit clear to stop viewing it. Let's close that comment panel and let's close this document. And if you wanna get back to the document... And you might not see it here in your recents. If you wanna get to it and it's something somebody else has shared with you if you're in Photoshop and you're in the home screen, which is what you see right now, if you are in the main part of Photoshop, click this little icon in the upper left that looks like a home to get back to here. And right over here, it says shared with you. And if you click on that things that were shared with you to your email address, that's your Adobe ID, that's where you'd be able to get back to them. You would also be able to tell if you had comments if you were in the Creative Cloud app. They'd show up in the upper right corner with a little bell icon. Adobe has also released a new version of Photoshop that runs in a web browser. And therefore you could open the same image we just worked with and actually make some edits to it without actually having to have your desktop computer with you. You could be in a library, anything like that, to access the web version of Photoshop, which has very limited features. Go to photoshop.adobe.com. And if you do, it'll ask you to sign in. And here's what it looks like. I've just gone to photoshop.adobe.com, and that will cause it to load this page. It'll have you sign into your Adobe ID. And on the left side it says web apps. And there you see Adobe Photoshop (Beta). So with that choice chosen, I can scroll down. And down here will be all of my cloud documents. In here, I could click on this particular document and it'll take it a little while to load. But once it does, you're gonna find a limited set of tools on the left. And on the right side, you're gonna find layers that you could turn off and on. And you have things like adjustment layers, layer masks and so on. So if I wanted to make some of those changes here, I could have come over here, and right there is a spot healing brush. So if I wanted to remove an object from within this image, I could have come over and let's say that I just needed to do some further retouching over here. It works much like what you would get in Photoshop. You're just gonna find that it's an extremely limited tool set that is here. When you're done, you can go to these three little bars up here and that's where you're gonna find the choice of save. So you can save that back to the cloud. And then if you need to get it in the main version of Photoshop, you can either click on this button, open in desktop app, or you can just go to Photoshop and go back to that home screen once again. And if you're on your files, you should see the files that you've saved to the cloud, and you could open the image from there.

Holy cow! I hope you already know everything about these programs before you start this class, and are ready to be off to the races! I watched the first part twice and still didn't quite catch everything. Ben slowed down a bit afterward and was fairly easy to follow throughout the rest. I appreciated the updates, but would like to be able to take a few notes next time.
