Being a full-time professional landscape & nature photographer I am almost always dealing with natural light in my photographs unless I am using a camera flash for fill-light on an animal or flower for example.

Watch Doug Landreth of Photomorphis create a rich textural composite using ON1 Photo 10. With the Layers masking tools he is able to replace the sky. Then in Effects watch him stack; Glow, HDR, Color Enhancer, Dynamic Contrast, Vignette & Texturizer filters to create his own unique preset.
When using ON1 Photo 10, you may have seen the word “smart layer” pop up from time-to-time. Maybe this is in a window that pops up, asking you to choose settings, or possibly when trying to use a tool that is grayed out. I’m here to help you demystify what smart layers are, how to use them, as well as why you may want to start working with them in your post-processing.
I want you to bring the vision you had for the photo to reality. Watch me do some basic adjustments and styling in ON1 Photo 10. I use ON1 Enhance for some basic highlight and shadow adjustments and then jump into ON1 Effects for adding glow, detail, and to paint in light & warmth (white balance). I’ll then finish off the photo with a vignette.
Watch ON1 Guru Nicole S. Young knock out a background and replace it with something a bit more interesting in this comprehensive workflow video.
Masking through tree branches for sky replacements. This photo came from Pat Cassity, one of our customers who sent it in asking for advice on how to mask the photo. The techniques mentioned in the video also work for hair. Be sure to open the tutorial full-screen and crank up the quality so you can really see the results.
