The overwhelming majority of questions I’ve been getting recently are around my workflow, and how I’ll continue to use ON1 as an extension to Lightroom and Photoshop. If you’re going all-in to ON1, there will, of course, be a ton of training for you to use it as a stand-alone. But I also think it’s important to know that they have a ton of Lightroom fans, that also like, ON1 – And that they didn’t leave us behind. In fact, our workflow remains pretty much intact, with a tiny change that you’ll see in this video.

(This Video is Open to the Public) I’ve seen a bunch of questions about how ON1 Browse works, and it seems that a lot of folks think it works similar to Lightroom’s Catalog. Well, it’s really quite a bit different and easier to work with in some ways, so I thought I’d do a quick video to explain how some organizing systems work, and how that differs from the way Browse works. Enjoy!
I hope everyone in the ON1 Plus community had a great weekend with the new Photo RAW prerelease. Besides enjoying family and turkey, I did a little senior photo shoot for some friends and put RAW through it’s paces as a standalone RAW photo editor and organizer. I thought I’d share a quick screencast of some of my first impressions.
I’ve had a few requests on editing night photos lately, so I thought I’d show you one of my edits from start to finish. Also, you’ll get a sneak peak of Photo RAW in this video, just to show you the power of having an editor built for a raw photo, that can take advantage of all that those files have to offer. Enjoy!
I shoot raw almost 100% of the time. But I’ve often wondered if I really need to. Sure, I know the advantages… but there’s so many times where I don’t need those advantages. So this past week I decided to try an experiment while on a trip. Part of the experiment was planned, but part of it was also unplanned, as you’ll see in the video. Enjoy!
I had an older photo drive attached to my computer looking for something, and I came across a photo shoot from a trip I took over 10 years ago. So I figured I’d go through the photos with you, taking a look at what I liked and didn’t like (about what I did 10 years ago), and even edit one of the photos. It was definitely a fun process and got me looking through my older photos again, so hopefully it inspires some of you to do the same. Enjoy!
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!
