How to Print 11×14 Borderless Prints on Canon’s PRO-100 Printer


The Canon PRO-100 printer driver cannot handle printing borderless 11″x14″ prints. Apparently, this size was not included since it was not considered a standard photo size at some point. I have a Canon PRO-100 color printer and often want to print an 11″x14″.

I found this workaround on https://www.redrivercatalog.com. This technique will work on other Canon printers, including PRO-10 and PRO-9000 etc. The steps below are for Photoshop 2022 but should work equally well for Photoshop Elements. The concept is valid for other photo printers that do not include an 11″x14″ setting.

1. Crop your photo to be a 14″x11″ (WxH), assuming you are printing a landscape aspect ratio photo.

2. On the menu, click Image > Canvas Size.

3. As shown in the figure below, set the width to 17-inches and the height to 11-inches. Move the black circle in the middle to the square on the left.

4. Click Ok.

5. Click Menu > Print> Print Settings.

6. In the Print Settings set the options below:

o Photo Printing

o Borderless

o Select desired paper

o High Quality

o 11″x17″ paper size

o Landscape Orientation

7. Click on OK.

8. Verify settings then click on Start Printing.

Note: If you are printing an 11″x14″ (WxH) portrait photo, set the width to 11″ and the height to 17″ in Step 3 above. Then move the circle from the center square to the top square in Step 3.

That is all there is to it.

Easily and Consistently Copy Your iPhone Images to Your PC


My normal way to import my iPhone images and videos into my PC is to use Lightroom IOS. This automatically loads them into Lightroom Desktop and Lightroom Classic, with the original stored on my PC. This works without any problems. But sometimes I want to copy them to my computer without using Lightroom.

I have had mixed success doing this, whether it is copying them to the MS Photos app or Adobe’s Photoshop Elements. A quick Google search revealed I am not the only who struggles to do this. There are several iPhone apps that are available to do this. I have found a free iPhone app, Simple Transfer, that so far work consistently in these situations.

In this I have included an AppTip Sheet, that briefly describes how to use Simple Transfer. As the AppTip Sheet illustrates, consists of an iOS app on your iPhone and Simple Transfer – Desktop running on your PC. The apps even allow you to convert the Apple’s High Efficiency image and video formats to those that are more compatible with Windows as it copies them.

Collection of My Previous Posts on Lightroom Classic


I have been using Adobe’s Photoshop Elements for over twenty years to manage my large collection of photographs and videos. In 2019, I switched to Lightroom for that task. Almost three years into using Lightroom, my workflow continues to evolve. I still use the Organizer in Photoshop Elements and continue to be a volunteer beta tester for Adobe. But, now my use is generally focused on using Elements for special projects and the unique features it provides.

Lightroom Classic’s Library module and the Organizer in Photoshop Elements 2022 have many capabilities and features in common, but there is no question that Lightroom is more powerful than Elements since its target users are professional photographers and prosumers. For the past three years I have written and published here articles primarily directed to using Lightroom’s Library module.

For those of you who use the subscription version of Lightroom Classic, you know that it is constantly being updated and evolving. Hence a few of my earlier articles may not reflect exactly more recent versions. The principles remain the same. These articles are best used by new users and reflect my own experience as I get to know Lightroom Classic and become more efficient in using it. Below is a list of the blog posts I have published over the years.

Please note, these are listed in reverse chronological order, with the most recent at the top of the list, and the very first one at the bottom.

Look for more in the future. Until next time…

Installing Canon’s Print Studio Pro on My New PC


I recently retired my six-year-old desktop PC. Although I had upgraded its components over the years – things like more memory, a SSHD, and new graphics card – its CPU was original and could not handle the newer features of Photoshop and Premiere Elements adequately.

My old PC was loaded with a ton of software. Many of the programs I no longer need or use. As is the usual case, buying a new computer for me is an excellent opportunity to do some house cleaning. 

Another major effort for me is transferring the over 100K photos and videos from my old computer. For me that means not only copying the photos/videos themselves, but also, the Photoshop Elements 2021 and Lightroom Classic catalogs. that went reasonably well. Cleanup of this task is still ongoing, because there are a lot of photos that I plan to delete as time goes on. 

I have  a Canon PIXMA P-100 printer. Reinstalling its driver and Canon’s  Print Studio Pro gave me trouble. The documentation is good, but somehow I struggled to get it right.

So I wrote an AppTip Sheet for myself to document my steps. That is the subject of this post. Just maybe there may be someone out there who has had similar problems. 

Here is the link to the the AppTip Sheet.

Just Finished a Brand New eBook


I have written three eBooks on Photoshop Elements and published them on Amazon. But the last one was Photoshop Elements 14 – The Organizer Revisited Again. Photoshop Elements (PSE) has been improved and enhanced significantly since then, and I figured it was time to write another one.

Photoshop Elements 2021 – The Organzer Plus has just been added to my books on Amazon. I have been working on it the last couple of months.

New eBook

The finished eBook has 241 pages and 315 figures. As with my other eBooks, this one essentially only covers the Organizer module of Photoshop Elements. For the most part, I leave the Photo Editor to other authors. Even if you are using a slightly older version PSE, there is still plenty of helpful information for you in this eBook.

If you end up buying it or reading it for free through Kindle Unlimited, let me know what you think.

Until next time…

360-Degree Panoramas Webpage


If you have followed my blog, you know that a lot of my posts deal with 360-degree panoramas, either taken with my drone, or more recently my Insta360 One X camera. My posts have often dealt with my efforts to stitch the individual images together and then effectively project them to be able to use the mouse to scroll and zoom.

About a month ago I added a dedicated webpage to focus on both my efforts and some of the results. Currently most of the examples were created using Momento360.com projections. The link to the webpage is shown at the top of this page. Later I will highlight other sites and software.

Stay tuned.

Until next time, stay safe.

Creating High Contrast Landscapes Images Using Photoshop


In this post, I am going to demonstrate how to bring out detail in landscape photos using traditional/legacy commands in Photoshop.

In more recent versions of Photoshop, we have new commands such as Clarity and Texture that essentially do this. But sometimes it is fun to revert to the old way. Besides, there is always that potential to better control the final result.

In this demo, I will be using Photoshop 2020, but the same techniques can be used using Photoshop Elements as well. I learned this technique from Dave Seeram in a magazine article he wrote several years ago.

One Way I Process Photos From My Insta360 One X Camera


In this post I am going to illustrate how I currently process 360-degree photos from my Insta360 One X camera. There are other workflows and programs that can be used. Right now this is what I do.

I have put my current workflow into an AppTip Sheet. To some extent this is a personal AppTip Sheet, in that the storage locations are unique to my software and computer. For example the unique nature and file format for the One X does not make organizing and editing using Lightroom Classic or Photoshop possible until the very end of the process.

Screen Your Photos in Lightroom Classic


Unless you make a conscientious effort to screen your images and videos, you very quickly end up with so many that even if you have them tagged, it will be difficult to quickly find those few images that are worth further work.

After a photoshoot, you can easily end up with hundreds of images. I take a lot of sports action photos. I generally have my camera set on its burst mode. After photographing two or three softball or soccer games during the weekend, I will come home with about 300-400 images. Amongst these are probably less than 50 that are even worth saving.

In the AppTip Sheet linked in this post, I describe a method that I adopted from an eBook by photographer, Chris Marquardt (https://chrismarquardt.com). It is only one of may ways that can be used to quickly go through your photos to end up with only the very best.

How to Use Lightroom Classic Keyword Tags – Part 1


It has been awhile since I have posted any tutorials, so I thought I better do one. Actually, I was going to post one big one, but I have decided to break it into two or three parts.

Although Lightroom was initially developed to help professional photographers manage their huge collection of photographs, it has evolved over the years.

It has steadily acquired more advanced editing capabilities. Now more and more people use it for their prime photo editor and only draw on Photoshop CC when they absolutely must. Consequently, most of the current written information deals with the Develop Module, sometimes ignoring the Library Module or using it incorrectly, thus generating unnecessary problems for themselves.

In Part 2, I’ll cover how to quickly find your images using your assigned keyword. So stay tuned. If you found this to be helpful, please give it a star rating at the top. Better yet, please leave a comment or share it with others. Thank you.
