Hi all! Whew! Its been a while huh? Well, not really :-) It’s only been a month since I’ve been in here coaching. But I’m happy to announce that I’m your new guest coach for the month of February.
ON1 Plus started as “12 Months with Matt” 2 years ago when I used to work for ON1 full time. Then, last year, we rolled it into ON1 Plus and this website was born. It’s really cool to see where the community has come since then, and I’m happy to be back with you guys for the next four weeks. And even though I don’t work for ON1 anymore, I still use/teach the apps, and I’ve got some cool stuff planned for February.
The main thing I wanted to cover this month was Layers. Raw edits are great, but there’s going to be times where you need to work with multiple images and layers are the key for that. In fact, even if you don’t ever go into the “official” Layers app in ON1, you use layers all the time when you use Filters in Effects or even (in a way) the Local Adjustments in Develop.
I won’t take up much more of your time other than to say Hi again. And to also let you know that Hudson and I will be doing another Reverse Photo Challenge. If you didn’t see last years, it was a blast, and we got a ton of great feedback on it. The new challenge survey is open now go vote! And of course, Hudson will be joining me for the monthly photo critiques, and I’ll have a live Q&A Febuary 22nd, register now.
I’m really looking forward to hanging out with you guys over the next month. Take care and let me know if you have any questions.
PS: I know I used a few “Hudson and I” or “Hudson and me” phrases here. If they’re grammatically incorrect in any way, I take full responsibility and kindly ask that you resist your urge to point it out. Instead, just ask photography/editing related questions. Remember… the wise man’s proverb from the days of yore: “If you correct people’s grammar, just remember that nobody likes you” :-)
