PW141 - Lightroom 3 Tips - Picture Packages

In this Lightroom 3 video tutorial we take a look at Picture Packages - an extremely useful feature for event photographers wanting to print and sell their images at the event. We see how to make a picture package layout, customise it with your company name and website and even make a custom package that uses more than one image.

PW140 - Tutorial 21, Chapter 3 - Northwest Wales Sunset

Today we complete our free photoshop video tutorial showing how we turned that badly exposed RAW file into a bright, colourful and interesting seascape. In this show we do some dodging and burning using a bitmap layer and then we use a curves layer with overlay blending mode to darken the corners as a vignette. Finally we use a neat technique for adding a lens flare to the image without the filter making a destructive edit.

PW139 - Tutorial 21, Chapter 2 - Northwest Wales Sunset

In today's show we show you how to use the lightroom adjustment brush and graduated filters to boost contrast and colour and add a sunset glow on the horizon. We then move over into Photoshop for the rest of our tutorial where we begin with some dust spot removal with the spot healing brush tool to deal with lens and sensor dust. Then we use a curves adjustment layer and paint on its layer mask to boost the oranges in our horizon glow.

PW138 - Tutorial 21, Chapter 1 - Northwest Wales Sunset

Today we start a brand new tutorial showing how I turned a very challenging exposure into a very pleasing seascape with rich blue, purple and yellow tones using Adobe Lightroom and then Photoshop. In this episode I use colour balance and graduated filters to add the colour toning and some sky darkening. I also bring back detail in the very light and dark regions by using the fill light and recovery sliders.
