I wanted to test my new noise control plugin Dfine 2.0 from Nik Software, so went looking for a really nasty lighting situation that would use ISO800 on my Canon 50D. Here is the results, original working title was DOF OFF . Other RAW processing was upon loading in Adobe Photoshop CS4, believe me at the original size the ISO noise was a lot more pronounced. The plugin also works in Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture 2.1
p.s. I hate the crop, but it was the only angle I could find to get just one of the ‘off’ labels sharp and the others blurred.

Have a Wacom tablet? Then why not control the opacity of your brushes using the pen just like pencil and paper. This video shows you how to set-up Photoshop CS4 brushes to respond to brush pressure on Wacom tablets. The harder you push the more opaque the brush will be. A bonus at the end shows how to set this globally across all the brush presets with one button click rather than setting up on a per brush basis.
I want to give a big thank you to Lisa Sage for pointing me in the right direction on the global brush setting, Lisa is an amazing artist and you should visit her web site at http://www.sagefamilystudios.com.
