You’d better get busy! Pick some great images for us again this time.

Seminar 7, Sunday, February 3, 2019

It’s the middle of winter, it’s cold and dark outside in the evenings – so I am hoping you have booked your time for the upcoming Post Processing Seminar. It’ll be at 7:30 pm on February 3 at the usual place, the Museum of Natural History. There will be two seminars: 

Landscape Focus Stacking (15 minutes) – Darryl Robertson
What it is, why you should use it, when to use it and how to do it. Quick, easy and amazing!

Post Processing / Introduction to ON1 Photo RAW – Laszlo Podor
This time we’ll review a relatively new product, that is very powerful tool and a good substitute for Photoshop and Lightroom on both Mac and Windows computers. ON1 Photo RAW 2019 is the third version of Photo RAW – ON1 started developing plugins several years ago and replaced their Perfect Photo 10 plugin suit with ON1 Photo RAW in 2017.  The recent versions of their product can be used as plugins from Photoshop and Lightroom, but it can be used as a standalone product, as a replacement for Lightroom/PS combo. There are lots of features of their product, so we’ll be cherry picking and look at some of the features that are useful for any photographer.

  • ON1 browser / user interface
  • Develop Module
  • Effects
  • Layers
  • Adjustments – local and global
  • Masking – luminosity masks and more
  • From RAW to finished image

 The previous years’ similar seminars were workshop type seminars, this time, since it’s an introduction to a new (new to most of us) tool, it’ll be a regular seminar. But if you wish, you can bring your laptop or tablet and follow the presentation.
If you have any questions or if you would like to see some specific features of ON1 Photo RAW, please let me know. You can e-mail me or we can discuss some of the questions after one of the next meetings.
