If you’re looking for a free raw photo editor, a new option has just appeared online. Filmulator is a simple raw photo editor based on the process of developing film. It’s easy to use, and it’s an open-source app, so it’s free for everyone to download and use it.
Many countries are in lockdown again, and many of us are stuck at home. If you don’t feel like learning and being creative, that’s perfectly fine. But if you do – this is the video for you. Spending time at home is ideal for mastering editing skills, and Nigel Danson has seven suggestions for you.
In his recent tutorial, photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich drew our attention to some major mistakes we make when editing documentary and travel images. Now he’s taking things to a higher level. Mitchell has just announced an in-depth tutorial for editing these kinds of images. He guides you through editing one of his photos, so you can follow along, one step at a time. Even though you can edit Mitchell’s image, it’s not about following a certain trend or replicating a certain look. The goal is to learn how to edit a documentary photo of life to be lifelike.
As I mentioned a gazillion times before, we all make mistakes and we learn from them. But some mistakes are more common than others and they persist even though they’re “rookie mistakes.” In this video, Mitchell Kanashkevich draws your attention to them and gives you five tips that will help you to stop making them.
When you edit a landscape photo, it’s easy to get carried away. I know I’ve been guilty of it even years after being into photography. And many times, it’s not even easy to see when you’ve gone overboard. In this video, Mark Denney gives you six signs that will help you recognize when you’ve gone too far with the image editing. And when you learn to recognize them, they’ll help you improve your post-processing skill.
Capture One 21 has been officially launched today, bringing with it some workflow speed improvements and some much anticipated new features and enhancements. For a start, Capture One finally has a Dehaze tool. It also now supports HEIC files from Apple devices, as well as ProStandard camera profiles to help create more true-to-life colour.
When it comes to workflow, a new Speed Edit function lets you make rapid edits to either a single image or to multiple images simultaneously for batch editing. Optimised and more efficient asset management lets you more quickly sift through your files, and an improved importer speeds up bringing those files into Capture One in the first place.
Let me ask you a question. Is this photo REAL or FAKE?
This might be a difficult question, because the answer depends on what you define as real or fake.[Read More…]
If there’s one thing the Slow Mo Guys know, it’s… well, slow mo. The clue’s kind of in the name. They produce some of the best slow-motion video in the world because it’s what they specialise in. They live it and breath it. In this video, half of the Slow Mo Guys, specifically Gavin Free, walks us through his editing process and his sound design workflow.
While it might be obvious to some, most of the sounds in their videos aren’t actually what the camera is recording (because it’s usually not even recording audio). Sometimes it is, but certainly not slowed down as much as the video is. Often, though, it’s usually a collection of random other sound effects that just feel right for the mood Gavin wants.
