In the first Lesson of my Photo RAW and Photoshop Workflow I just want to give you a mild introduction. This course is an extension of the first course I did back in April of 2016, Photo Workflow Mastery. The Mastery Course covers the topics of Tone, Color, and Artistic Effects in great detail. It may be a good idea to refer to it for a refresher as those topics will not be covered in as much depth.
I just wanted to take the time to say hello and give you a brief introduction before I guest coach for the month. So here it goes!
I am Blake Rudis of f.64 Academy, and I am passionate about high-quality photography education. I wasn’t always a photo educator, though.
I want to thank everyone in the Plus community for such a fun and productive past year. It’s been my privilege to coach such a passionate and engaged group of photographers all working together to improve your art. You guys are incredible!
As amazing as 2016 has been, 2017 is going to be even more exciting. We’ve got four brand new courses coming, new coaches, and of course all the critiques, challenges, and interactive content that the Plus community has come to expect.
Blake Rudis is kicking things off with us as a guest coach for all of January. The emphasis will be on workflow and editing. Buckle up, it’s going be fun!
Matt and I have had such an incredible experience coaching the Plus community this past year. We’ve been consistently impressed with the steadily increasing quality of the critique submissions each month and December’s Fall Photo Critique Gallery was no exception. You guys really knocked it out of the park this time. Bravo!

See how to get your work exported from Photo RAW 2017. It’s easy to share right from Browse, Develop and Effects. You can also see how to share your photos using the free ON1 iOS app, Photo Via.
ON1 Photo RAW 2017 works hand in hand with Adobe® Photoshop©. In this video, Dan Harlacher shows how to integrate Photo RAW with Photoshop to create and style a panorama. He also shows some quick tips along the way.
Watch the recorded version of this ON1 Live as I take a few of my landscape photos through my workflow in ON1 Photo RAW 2017. I cover beginner topics such as culling and previewing your photos in Browse, processing landscape photos in Develop and Effects, and utilizing Local Adjustments tools to apply edits selectively. I also show some more advanced techniques using the blending options in Local Adjustments and Effects. Toward the end of the presentation, I blend three photos in Layers to craft a scene creating a layered composite. There’s some Q & A, too!
One of the most important new features is the non-destructive editing found in Photo RAW 2017. It makes it really easy to apply edits and settings to many other photos at once.
One of the really handy features in ON1 Photo RAW 2017 are the new local adjustment layers and local adjustment tools. They are available with both Develop and Effects and shared between the two modules. They allow you to selectively apply edits or effects to certain areas of your photo.
