Photoshop Mix 1.1: New Features Thanks to Your Feedback —Adobe | Photoshop Blog
Photoshop is a wonderful resource, full of creative potential; to help streamline that creative potential, Adobe has included an insane amount of shortcuts that allow you to easily apply effects, swap tools and perform actions. There’s just one issue… there’s too many of them to keep track of.
VSCO has just released a free update for all five VSCO Film packs for Lightroom 5.6 and ACR 8.6 for Photoshop CC that is tailor-made for specific Sony, Nikon and Canon cameras. The custom camera profiles are designed for greater accuracy in developing film emulated images.

When it comes to photographing the elusive Milky Way in one of the most light-polluted major cities like Singapore, timing is critical. Most of the faint details will be washed out by the extreme light pollution and if we were to shoot the Milky Way under unfavorable atmospheric conditions, our attempt would be futile.
Unfortunately, most of the tutorials online only work in locations that are at least 2 stops darker than most of the dark locations in Singapore and so, we need to do more in post-processing to unveil the elusive Milky Way and more complex workflow is required if we’re shooting at much brighter locations.
