    Hello. After I add images from a folder in the Contact sheet 2, all my images have a small white border around them and that looks terrible. Any way I could remove them?

    Excellent tutorial. I will note that "Patterns" is now under "Fill Layers". Took me longer than I’m willing to admit to find out.

    Marty, I have a suggestion for a tutorial "Composition with Triangles" Do a model and place a couple of diagonal words in the composition

    Thanks for this are very easy to follow. I have my photos in a mosaic but I have white borders around all the photos that I can’t get rid of. I cannot expand the photos to go beyond the grid so that the photos touch each other… What have I missed?
