If you’ve ever wanted to enhance the look and feel of the sun in your photos, there’s some cool tricks we can do when we combine a bit of brightening with the Sunshine filters (for some glow). In this video, I’ll walk you through a technique I use quite a bit in Lightroom, but it translates really well over in to Effects too. Enjoy!

Introducing Hudson’s next full video training course Approaching the Scene. It will be available to stream and download for all active Plus members January 2017. Hudson was kind enough to share a sneak peek with us of what he’s been working on. Check it out:
A while back I wrote a blog post about a few ways/apps to use to add text to your photos. Keep in mind, these were not suggesting alternatives to using Photoshop or InDesign, or Illustrator or whatever manual program you have to adding text. These were some ideas I thought helped you with adding nice and professional looking text to your photos.
I always show people how I shoot bracketed photos so that I’m covered when I get back to the computer. A popular question that follows up (and I’ve been asked a few times here on Plus), is what do I do with those brackets and how do I pick the best photo. Well, here’s a quick tip in both ON1 and Lightroom that’ll help out.
As you get ready for ON1 Photo Raw, and start to think about organizing a little more in ON1 Browse, Albums are sure to come up as a topic. So, in this video, I thought I’d talk about 2 ways that albums can help out vs. a traditional folder-based organizational system.
If you’ve watched any of my videos you know I’m a sucker for the “Big Softy” Vignette filter in Effects. But if I’m spending a little more time with my photo, and I know I’m going to do some layered based editing to it, I also have another trick for adding vignettes that tends to look a bit more natural. With a duplicate layer, and a quick blend mode change, it’s actually pretty simple and fast to do. Enjoy!
Last week I saw a few questions about adding and searching with keywords in Browse. Coming off the video I did on the Favorites/Watched section in Browse, I thought this video on keywords was a great follow up. If you have a complicated photo library (I don’t), then keywords can definitely help you find/organize your photos at a deeper level, and a lot of people use them (I personally don’t). But there’s a trick in Browse to making keywords work a little better and it actually involves that same Favorites/Watched panel that we looked at last week. Enjoy!
The Favorites/Watched area in Browse is a pretty powerful little section of the app that goes unused by a lot of folks out there. I thought I’d do a quick video that shows you how it’s different, and a little behind the scenes of how it really works and when it’s best to use it. Enjoy!
In just about any software app out there, you’ll find there’s different ways to do things. Everyone has a specific workflow and way of doing things that works for them. ON1 apps are no different. In Effects for example, there’s various ways to add filters and I’ve noticed over time that everyone gravitates toward one side of the screen or another when doing it. So I figured I’d do a quick video showing you some of the different ways, and hopefully open up a few little tips and tricks for you. Enjoy!
I always see a lot of questions about moving from Photoshop to ON1 and when it’ll automatically create a new layer. So here’s a quick video that goes over some of the options you have, as well as a quick shortcut if you ever need a new layer, even after you’ve returned from ON1. Enjoy!
Last week I did a video on the ways to jump to Lightroom from ON1. One of the questions that came up involved applying ON1 presets in Lightroom. While there’s no direct way to apply ON1 presets in Lightroom, there’s an awesome little tip about how you can batch export photos from Lightroom, and have ON1 automatically presets to the photos without you lifting a finger (well, after you lift your finger to kick off the batch process that is) :-)
Anyway, here’s a quick video on how to use the Lightroom Export dialog to apply your favorite ON1 presets. Enjoy!
I always see questions about the various ways to get over to ON1 from within Lightroom. There’s the Photo > Edit In menu and there’s the File > Plug-In Extras menu. They each work just a little different so I figured I’d do a quick video on the best practices to use. Enjoy!
Hey there everyone! A while back many of you submitted photos for Hudson and I to edit. We still have a ton of them left which is why we haven’t opened up submissions again. This time around I found a couple of photos that jumped out at me as being good candidates for some stylization. Enjoy!
