Wacom Tablet and Photoshop Brush size

Quick Tip: Do you use a Wacom tablet with Photoshop to edit your images? Have you setup one of the touch ring functions to allow you to adjust brush or tool size? Does the brush display only as a cross-hair instead of the circle that you expect?  If so make sure the CAPS LOCK is not set on the keyboard, turn it off and the brush interface should return to normal.

Trash the Dress Alternative.

 One of the hot trends these days with wedding photography is something called "Trash the Dress" where the bride dressed in her wedding frock is photographed as she basically destroys the gown. After spending a small fortune and hours/days searching out the gown of her dreams, the bride decides instead of storing it in a box up in the attic she will "Trash" it. She will wear the dress down to the beach and roll in the surf and sand as she is photographed. Is there a better option... of course there is.

  The Brides Project is a social enterprise who take in used wedding gowns donated by brides and resell them to new brides at a fraction of the cost, but the best part is that the profits are donated to cancer charities. A volunteer group who provide a memorable day to new brides and fund cancer charities in the process.. as they say "Fighting Cancer one Dress at a time". Win Win without the TRASH.
