  2. I’m grateful for your excellent guidance. Mine’s a PC desktop. Future topics “LR Output” (slideshows, books, print (screen/print calibratio?)).

  3. Hi Colin,
    Love this tutorial. I want to try this with my family pictures. I am using a PC Laptop with Windows 10, and Photoshop CC 2018. I would like to know how to match colors, on some of my pictures that have gotten discolored spots in the older photos.

  4. Great tutorial as usual but I cannot find the link to the photos you used and I would love to try this out.

  5. Hi, I work on a laptop and do not have a wacom or pen and I have researched them but found it confusing and prices are so different I just went back to my laptop…………lol

  6. My initials are PC, so that’s what I use. I just wish I could get a little more RAM and a new, faster processor. I have been using the same one for 60 years and I forget a lot. LOL
