Plus Free Preview: Your Photo Our Look — March 2017

To all of you that have submitted photos for the Your Photo Our Look series… man, oh man… do you make it tough to choose photos to work with. There are so many good ones you have sent in.

ON1 Inspiration – A Crooked Path

When I sit down to post process an image, I have a concept of what the final photo will look like. However, getting to that final image is rarely a straight path.

ON1 Short Clip – Give a Dull & Flat Photo Some Pop

Just a few minutes in ON1 Photo RAW 2017 can transform a photo from dull & flat to detailed & vibrant. I use Develop to remove some distractions and then some basic adjustments to enhance the colors in the photo. I’ll then jump to Effects to darken the bottom of the photo with a gradient mask and “apply to”. Once I’m done I’ll boost the detail with Dynamic Contrast and finish off the photo by adding a spotlight vignette.

ON1 Live: A Landscape Workflow with Photo RAW

Watch the recorded version of this ON1 Live as I take a few of my landscape photos through my workflow in ON1 Photo RAW 2017. I cover beginner topics such as culling and previewing your photos in Browse, processing landscape photos in Develop and Effects, and utilizing Local Adjustments tools to apply edits selectively. I also show some more advanced techniques using the blending options in Local Adjustments and Effects. Toward the end of the presentation, I blend three photos in Layers to craft a scene creating a layered composite. There’s some Q & A, too!

ON1 Inspiration — My Ever Present Past

A prevalent theme in my photography is water. Whether I’m walking along the beach or walking through a city center, I’m drawn to water. Oceans, lakes, reflecting pools, rivers, fountains – I see one of these, and I reach for my camera. And the photo I share in this ON1 Inspiration episode is no exception.

ON1 Short Clip — Incredibly Powerful Presets in Photo RAW

Photo RAW saves both Develop and Effects settings into a single preset. What could be better than that? Saving luminosity masks, too! ON1 Photo RAW includes luminosity masks in saved presets.
