Using the Develop module, I’ll teach you my steps to fixing the brightness and contrast on landscape photos. I love to spend time in Local Adjustments and mask in brightness or contrast in certain areas. Follow along with me in this video and I’ll teach you another hot tip for making color pop – with a new feature in ON1 Photo RAW 2018!
Category: ON1 Photo RAW 2018 Develop
See how to create a dreamy landscape with Photo RAW 2018. We will do some quick corrections in Develop and then pop the trees with Local Adjustments. Then jump over to Effects to add Dynamic Contrast and the Sunshine filter for a touch of glow.
If you need to clean up the edges of your masks in Effects we are adding the Blur and Chisel Mask tools. The Chisel Tool is perfect for removing halos that may remain along the edges of your mask. It will remove just a small amount of pixels from the edge. The Blur Tool is perfect for only blurring or feathering the edge of your mask. Softening the edges of your mask will allow for a more natural transition when blending photos together.
A new local adjustment feature is just for noise. This allows you to decrease or increase noise locally which also allows you to selectively control the amount of noise in certain areas of your photo.
One of the new options in Photo RAW 2018 is the ability to paint with color. This allows you to paint with a solid color or replace the color of an object in the photo.
Create as many versions (or virtual copies) of a photo as you need. A version lets you keep different Develop and Effects settings, as well as different retouching, crop settings, and meta data settings on different copies of the photos without actually creating a real copy of the file.
