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.
