Having a Photoshop brain cramp.

I'm trying to draw a simple line but instead I'm getting this weird four-triangle shape out of the line tool. What button did I accidentally push to get this result? And more importantly, how do I get it back to just drawing a line?

Searching online doesn't get me any useful ideas.

Found it - I was making the arrowhead way too big so that it was distorted. Still not exactly sure how I made that happen.

Does anyone here have a Canon EOS R? I was in a store the other day and chatting to what seemed to be a very knowledgeable chap who raved about it, and said it was his only camera now. I really prefer the ergonomics of it compared to the Sony versions. 30mp is ample for me. Previously I have owned Canon cameras for years. Now being "Expensive" camera less and looking to get back into it with a full frame mirrorless, I am snooping around.

However, I read the DPREVIEW on on it and it seems to have a lot more don't likes that likes.

Unfortunately one never knows what reviews in the this world are impartial anymore, and that are not being paid for somethings they say.

Well these poppies spread even more. It is wonderful to look at them in my front yard. The bush in the middle is called a kangaroo paw because the red flowers resemble kangaroos paws.

I think there's a sense they may have rushed those out.

Canon has already announced new full frame mirrorless due to come out -- assuming not affected by the pandemic.

IOW, they announced a new model a year after those first R models. There seems to be some excitement for it, going to have high shooting rate and has some higher frame rate video modes.

Do you mean the upcoming potential EOS R5? Looks like it may / could be very expensive though.

On the first day back, we heard that Moab had shut down all lodging. We did get some nice shots in our 5 days in Page, even with the trouble growing. I am just starting to edit them. This is one from Lake Powell, where we rented a boat.

^ Page is a great place to spend some time. But I read that Navajo National Parks discontinued photography tours of Upper Antelope Canyon in December 2019. https://petapixel.com/2019/12/11/ant...ative-reviews/

They did, but you can still do a lot hand held, and other slot canyons in the area still have photo tours (when not shut for coronavirus).

This is Lower Antelope Canyon, hand held.

^ very nice - especially for handheld. I took the photo tour a few years ago, but it was still crowded. Our tour group was on the heels of the group ahead of us, and there was group was right behind us. We could use tripods, but it was almost too crowded to use them.

I just discovered a photo I entered in a contest for the White Pass and Yukon RR took first place. They titled it "steam passing" It was a fluke to catch the reflection in the window just right
