Photoshop Tips and Tricks:
Most people work WAY too hard at adjusting in Photoshop and there are tools and techniques that make it easy, quick and give you better quality than what you might be getting right now. This isn't new to CC 2018, either. Nope...these tools have been around for a while, but hidden away so most people don't know to use them.
Some of what you'll learn: how to adjust multiple images simultaneously (better than Actions), how to balance color with a click...or fine-tune with two simple sliders (goodbye Color Balance or Variations), convert photos to black and white in a click, but still control contrast, shadows, and adjust specific colors to shades of grey, save the same images as both color AND black and white, resize images during save, crop multiple images with focal length simultaneously (image cropping 500 portraits at once), and much, much more!
