Tim and Renee kick off the podcast with a chat about a "wild" story (pun intended) of photos that were deemed to be in the public domain because they were self-portraits taken by a macaque. They then address questions from photographers about Smart Objects in Photoshop, issues with flattening photos, using a color checker or gray card, autofocus modes, and the concept of layers in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.

They then discuss questions from photographers about a missing "badge" in Lightroom, converting a large number of RAW captures to TIFF images, using the Image Processor outside of Adobe Bridge, the safety of Apple's MagSafe plug as it relates to hard drives, and working with a large scan from an 8x10 transparency.

Tim and Renee chat about shooting in a horizontal versus vertical orientation, and why Tim's photographs (and seemingly those of many others) tend to be horizontal more than vertical. They then discuss questions from photographers about the Oil Paint filter being removed from Photoshop CC 2014, image quality relative to sensor size, whether to sharpen photos that will be assembled into a high dynamic range image, calculating opposite colors, and creating actual copies from virtual copies in Lightroom.

Tim and Renee chat about the notion that hiring a professional photographer really does add value. They then discuss questions from photographers about a "Layer 0" being created upon cropping in Photoshop, whether the new Focus Area selection command in Photoshop CC 2014 is really a great new feature, some confusion about the latest release of Photoshop, and issues related to collections in Lightroom.
