Hello,

Thank you for visiting PhotoshopForums.com.

Today, I'm happy to announce our new forum organizational structure that has been literally months in the making. In considering feedback we'd received, Matt and I had some long discussions about how we could better organize the structure of our community and how best to execute it. We felt we were at a point where we had enough new posts coming in where we should be able to better categorize our discussions, rather than having such general, non-specific forums.

We dug deep into the community to get a sense for the most popular areas of discussion and we mapped out a structure, which we carefully considered and adjusted. It's the new forum structure you see today on our index page. I have to thank Matt and give him a lot of praise for this as his help and knowledge of Photoshop and this community was an irreplaceable part of this process.

I'll include the before and after forum lists below, for those interested in the gritty details. But, I hope that this new lineup makes it easy to navigate, share, help and discuss Photoshop and design related issues in our community.

Thank you for reading.

Sincerely,

Patrick

Hello,

We removed a post from this thread in error. It is included below. I apologize for the confusion.

Thanks,

"Image Manipulation" would be a better heading than "Manipulation", as that sounds a bit vague and possibly disturbing.

And "Technical" would be better described as "Technical Issues".

Hello neontester,

Thanks for the feedback. :) I appreciate it. I know I discussed this over private message with you, but I figured I'd reply here, as well, for the benefit of the community.

I think that the suggestion makes sense and I will keep it in mind. I think both ways make sense and that it could go either way.

We could have words like image or issues in most of the individual forums, like Image Export, Output and Optimization and Photography Issues, etc. But, it's a good suggestion and I'll definitely give it some thought.

Thanks again,

Patrick
