Here’s a short video on how to best setup and use a Wacom pen tablet with Photo RAW. I’ll talk a bit about what tablets I use, and show you how I set them up and use them in my editing workflow. We’ve had a lot of questions about pen tablets in the Plus forums, which led us to create this video. Remember to use the Ask a Coach Plus forum if you have questions or things you want to learn more about. It drives this type of community content. Below the break are links to the tablets I showcase in this video.
There have been a number of questions in the Plus Community Discussion Forum this winter that relate to monitor calibration. For those of us who like to print, having your monitor calibrated for color and brightness is absolutely key to getting prints that look like your edited image on screen. In this video I’ll explain why and show you how I calibrate my monitors. Below the break are some links to the tools I use in this video below the break as well as some links to learn more and test your monitor’s performance without hardware.
Happy holidays everyone. In this short video I quickly go through basic settings for both Photo RAW 2018 and your camera in different capture situations. First I talk about how to set up the camera differently depending on whether you are out to capture a landscape on your tripod or working with moving subjects and changing light conditions. Next I go into some of the basic preferences, settings and customization that I think you should consider using in Photo RAW 2018 before you even start editing an image.
Happy holidays everyone! Here by popular demand is another Your Photo Our Look video. We asked the Plus community to submit their RAW images for us to edit up our way in Photo RAW 2018. In this edition I edit three Plus member’s photos. After raw processing the first image of a couple in a crowd, I use one of Photo RAW 2018’s stock Effects presets to give the photo a modern look and then add a Blur filter in Effects to make the couple stand out. Next I test the limits of Photo RAW’s ability to process an extremely high contrast landscape scene, boosting the shadows with a combination of local adjustments before removing some distractions and finish process the image in Effects without using presets. Finally I raw process, remove distractions and use one of my Winter Classic Effects presets to add character to a lovely winter scene of a barn in the woods.
Tis the season, and I hope everyone is enjoying it with family. We are doing a another Your Photo Our Look this month and need your RAW files! It’s easy to submit. Simply send us a link for your raw file using a cloud storage service of your choice such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Apple iCloud, etc.
