Solar Eclipse Editing in ON1 Photo RAW 2017

Posted in

I’ve been asked at least a hundred times about info on viewing, setting up, shooting, camera settings and everything around the Solar Eclipse yesterday. While it’s all very important information to know, I’ve actually never photographed an eclipse before. So I figured I’m probably not the right person to write about or tell you how to do it. I can definitely help with what comes after though!

Last week I got a question about editing the photos, and I realized nobody is talking about that part – especially those cool photo composites you see where multiple phases of the eclipse all appear in one photo. In this video I’ll take you through some steps in ON1 Photo RAW 2017 to create these composite images you are seeing of the Eclipse.

Also, my photo makeover series has been super popular and I think it’s because I take your photos and edit them, rather than my own. So, next week, I’ll be hosting a free webinar to do just that with your eclipse photos.

    Thanks Matt
    I live in the UK, apparently Cornwall did see a partial eclipse, or would have if the normal British Summertime precipitation, had not got in on the act… :(
    Is it possible to down load the eclipse jpegs that you used in the demonstation? As I suspect that it would be fun to use them in a faked photo?
    Best wishes David Price.
    ps. the cutting out skills could be useful for other types of layered photos.
