By David Pierce and Vlad Savov
Cameras are everywhere. There’s one in your laptop, two in your phone, and probably a pair in your tablet that you’ve never used. There’s maybe one in your doorbell, even, or strapped to your head while you bomb the slopes. We’re taking more pictures in more ways and sharing them in more places than ever.

So, with that idea in mind, I gathere..

Go Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Vibrance and reduce the Vibrance to “-60”.
Next select the Vibrance layer in the layers panel and specifically choose the layer mask. In the Properties Panel (Window>Properties) select the “Invert” button to fill our mask with black to hide the desaturation that we just imposed on the Vibrance layer.

Shutterbug had some hands-on time with the two new Canon DSLRs ahead of this morning’s launch and have included those images in this story. While the design of the two cameras is slightly different and the 77D is aimed ..
Though it was announced late last month, the new 24-megapixel Pentax KP DSLR made its official debut at the WPPI show in Las Vegas this week and we put our grubby little paws all over this compact yet rugged APS-C sensor-based DSLR. What impressed us most was that despite the camera’s slim build – it weighs only 1.4 pounds and is small enough to fit into a laptop bag – the Pentax KP looks and feels like a serious pro-level DSLR.
It’s also weather resistant and while we haven’t had a chance to seriously test the new Pentax KP out yet,&n..
