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.

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 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!
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.
There’s probably going to come a time where you want to put some great looking, professional and beautiful text on to your photos. After all, if you’re going to add text to a nice photo, why ruin it with yucky looking type. So I thought I’d round up 3 ways that I’ve used that work really well. Now, in full disclosure, when I really need to add type to an image I use Photoshop. That said, my typography skills aren’t where they need to be, so it never really looks that good.
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!
We are so excited to kick off print week! Each day we’ll be covering a variety of topics to help you get your image from the digital darkroom to the wall. Soft-proofing, monitor calibration, printing yourself, sending prints out? We are covering it. Here’s a short print week introduction video that will let you know what to expect in the days ahead.
Keep your landscapes razor sharp in lower light with wider apertures. Watch this new tutorial to see how I capture this low-light Patagonian landscape image in multiple frames at varying focus settings and then RAW process, composite blend, and finish edit the scene into a single, tack-sharp image. Software covered includes ON1 Layers, ON1 Effects and the Lightroom Develop module’s basic, noise reduction and sharpening panels.
