It has been a phenomenal month as a guest coach. We discussed the Luminosity Making feature in Photo RAW quite extensively. If you were a novice before I hope that bumped you up a couple of notches. If you were an amateur Luminosity Masker, I could only wish that you are more comfortable using it.
Let’s wrap all this Luminosity Masking stuff up to one killer conclusion! We are going to talk about some advanced concepts here, but by the time you are done, you will be prepared to take on the Empire!
Tethered Shooting is a new feature in ON1 Photo RAW 2018.1 – coming soon. Get your photos to your computer instantly and apply import settings in a flash. Initial release will support Canon and Nikon with more manufacturers to be added in the near future.
Here’s a short video on how to best setup and use a Wacom pen tablet with Photo RAW. I’ll talk a bit about what tablets I use, and show you how I set them up and use them in my editing workflow. We’ve had a lot of questions about pen tablets in the Plus forums, which led us to create this video. Remember to use the Ask a Coach Plus forum if you have questions or things you want to learn more about. It drives this type of community content. Below the break are links to the tablets I showcase in this video.
Hello Everyone! Thank you to those that uploaded a photo to be critiqued this month. The individual photo critique videos are posted below.

So we already talked about the Science behind Luminosity Masks and how to use them with Landscapes.
This week we are going to look at how we can use Luminosity Masks with Portraits. Don’t read too far into this, in reality, it is no different than using them with Landscapes. All of the principles remain the same we just have to decide where we want the viewer to focus. Luminosity Masks can be instrumental with portraits, they are not just Landscape tools!
Soft Proofing is a new feature in ON1 Photo RAW 2018.1 – coming soon. Soft proofing is the ability to view a simulation of how your image will look when printed based on specific printer and paper profiles. This new feature coming to ON1 Photo RAW 2018.1 will allow you to simulate what your photos look like when they are printed on certain types of paper.
Black & White tones are great for creating a beautiful seascape photo. A powerful tool in ON1 Photo RAW 2018 allows for greater control and creativity in your photo editing. Specifically, Luminosity Masks allow you to selectively edit and apply effects to just the tones you want. If it sounds complex it REALLY isn’t. In fact, this technique will help your photo editing workflow become faster and more efficient. This works particularly well when editing landscape photos (or seascapes such as this one), and is perfect for enhancing a boring sky.
It’s never been faster to get your photos from your camera into ON1 Photo RAW 2018. A new feature coming soon in the ON1 Photo RAW 2018.1 update, Import, will allow you to download, back-up, rename and add metadata and photo settings all in one step. Import will detect any camera or memory card that you have connected to your computer and allow you to copy them to your computer (import them) into ON1 Photo RAW 2018.
