ON1 Short Clip – Give a Dull & Flat Photo Some Pop

Posted in , , , , , ,

Tagged with , , ,

Just a few minutes in ON1 Photo RAW 2017 can transform a photo from dull & flat to detailed & vibrant. I use Develop to remove some distractions and then some basic adjustments to enhance the colors in the photo. I’ll then jump to Effects to darken the bottom of the photo with a gradient mask and “apply to”. Once I’m done I’ll boost the detail with Dynamic Contrast and finish off the photo by adding a spotlight vignette.

    Thanks, Scott. That tip on “apply to neutrals” to target the road was excellent advice. I probably never would have found that one!

      Sure thing, John. Those Blending Options are very, very useful. Keep them in mind!

    Thank you Scott, for showing apply to neutrals. If there are other examples from the choices that would be great to have short tutorial on.

      Will do, Raj. If you’re in ON1 Plus, check out Blake Rudis’ recent video on the blending options. Fantastic rundown of the options and controls.

    Thanks a lot. I learned a lot of new stuff… The movable vignette for example.
    These videos are very educational… I love them
