Tim and Renee chat about some of the issues surrounding how easily human vision can be tricked, and color management concepts in general. They then discuss the questions and answers from the Ask Tim Grey eNewsletter for the week of May 19-23, 2014. This includes questions about using Photoshop Elements as an editor from Lightroom, the reality of JPEG compared to RAW, setting output levels for print and calibrating a monitor, the ability to remember colors from a scene, and a camera feature called "gapless on-chip lens design".

Tim and Renee briefly revisit the patent that was awarded to Amazon for photographing a subject against a white background, and then discuss Tim's switch from mostly writing books to mostly producing training videos for photographers. They then discuss the questions and answers from the Ask Tim Grey eNewsletter for the week of May 12-16, 2014. That includes questions about bit depth in Adobe Camera Raw, better matching with the Patch tool in Photoshop, inverting a layer mask in Photoshop, converting to 16-bit mode after processing an image, and sharpening in Lightroom for images to be published in a Blurb book.

Tim and Renee chat about a patent issued to Amazon for a photographic technique involving capturing a subject against a white background, leading perhaps to more questions than answers. They then discuss and expand upon the questions and answers from the Ask Tim Grey eNewsletter for the week of May 5 to 9, 2014. This includes questions about batch processing HDR images for a panorama, keeping file sizes reasonable in Photoshop, a possible myth about bit depth, whether Lightroom Mobile includes the Spot Removal Tool, and the pros and cons of using a lower resolution RAW capture if offered by your camera.

Tim and Renee chat about why so many photographers are (with good reason) confused by the concept of "the cloud" and "cloud computing". They then discuss and expand upon the questions and answers from the Ask Tim Grey eNewsletter for the week of April 28 to May 2, 2014. This includes questions about Photoshop in the cloud, moving the Lightroom catalog, blend modes and file size in Photoshop, deleting the JPEG from RAW+JPEG capture, and why a photographer might want to store photos in the cloud.
