How To Use The New Dehaze Filter In Adobe Photoshop And Lightroom

Posted on Jul 3, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jul 3, 2015

Being a regular visitor to China during my University Lecture tours and being an avid photographer, I have always been somewhat disappointed with many of the images due to the haze from the pollution in Northern China or the haze from the humidity in Southern China. The “fix” to remove the haze , at least to me, was a complex series of steps in Photoshop. As of the latest releases of Photoshop CC 2015 and Lightroom CC, that “fix” has been reduced to a click thanks to the introduction of the Dehaze filter in both applications. Before you get all excited, be aware this filter is only found in the Camera Raw area of Photoshop CC 2015 and Lightroom CC. If you have an older version of Photoshop or Lightroom you will need to upgrade.

How To Create HDR Images In Adobe Lightroom 6/CC

Posted on May 29, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on May 29, 2015

HDR – High Dynamic Range- as its name implies, is a method that aims to add more "dynamic range" to photographs, where dynamic range is the ratio of light to dark in a photograph. Instead of just taking one photo, you take three photos shot using different exposures. In simplistic terms you get the perfect exposure and then take one underexposed and one overexposed image. From there you use image editing software – in this case Lightroom CC-  to put those three images together and highlight the best parts of each photo.

This is a year ten digital media project I have created in 2015. It utilises photographic and illustrative skills in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. The task is a self portrait photographic print that includes hand drawn organic  and geometric illustrative elements.  The students are to create a print that is monochromatic and applies the gestalt principles and elements and principles of design in the final outcome. Image manipulation skills are key in making this work successful.

How to Use The New Face Recognition In Adobe Lightroom CC

Posted on Apr 28, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

Over the years I have travelled all over the world and taken thousands of photographs. Keeping track of them has always been an issue. Though I have used Adobe Bridge quite extensively for this task, I have started to migrate to Adobe Lightroom. This is because Lightroom offers extensive support for adding metadata that makes it easy to find photos later. The pain point, especially when it comes to recognizing faces in Lightroom, is it has been a manual process. You have to add the metadata. The crazy thing is the capability to identify and recognize faces has been part of iPhoto, Aperture, and Adobe’s own Photoshop Elements. No longer. As of the April 21 release of Lightroom CC/ Lightroom 6, the process becomes an absolute breeze. Lightroom CC now contains a facial recognition feature that not only focuses on the faces in a folder full of images but also allows you to search for photos containing those faces.

Video Editing with Photoshop Lesson Plan - Candie Witherspoon

Posted on Apr 13, 2015 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jun 22, 2015

I had never used video editing in Photoshop prior to this course.  I have used many other applications for that purpose in the past. Camtasia Studio is one that I have purchased and used for years because it also allows me to record teacher demonstrations on the computer as well as create videos and edit them.  I'm glad to know that I can do this in Photoshop too.  It will be a good opportunity for me to teach my Photography students a little video editing before they leave me this year.  I have prepared a lesson plan based on this course and the information and resources shared within it.  So do not be surprised if you see links to AdobeTV and Youtube videos that we viewed during this course. :)   Enjoy the lesson plan and feel free to copy it, tweak it, and share it with your fellow educators.   I have enjoyed this course.  I have been using Photoshop for 15 years or so, but there is ALWAYS something I can learn from courses like this, and video editing is a...

Understanding camera basics

Posted on Apr 8, 2015 by Dhanaraj Keezhara Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

Understanding camera basics Cameras come in lots of different shapes and sizes, but they all have a few basic things in common: a lens to focus on your subject, a housing (with a handle to hold it), and a mechanism to record the image. In most cameras these days, that mechanism is likely to be an electronic sensor to record the photograph digitally.  It can be more difficult to override the automatic settings on cheaper models, which might leave you feeling that you are not completely in control of the final image.

How To Create Grayscale Images in Lightroom 5

Posted on Apr 3, 2015 by Tom Green Last Activity on Jun 27, 2015

It should come as no surprise that a lot of the color correction duties usually handled by Photoshop are now being handled by Adobe Lightroom 5. One of the main reasons behind this is the tools in Lightroom are seen as being a lot more robust than their Photoshop counterparts. As well, Lightroom natively manages Camera Raw images without the use of a plug in.

Photography Book with inDesign - Lesson Plan

Posted on Mar 1, 2015 by Candie Witherspoon Last Activity on Jun 18, 2015

Here is a lesson plan that I will be using for my Photography Class as their final assignment this year.  I have used this assignment in the past few years but not with inDesign.  I have used the free BLURB book creator desktop app that is downloadable from their website where we set up a store to print and sell extra copies of our student books as a fundraiser effort for my photography class to help offset costs for the course on things such as software renewal, photo printing paper, lighting equipment, etc.  We haven't raised a lot of money, because most are usually satisfied with their one copy, but I share the link with them to give to family and friends and tell them to encourage them to buy more copies as holiday gifts and to let them know that most of the proceeds go to support our class and to keep it going. As my class photography final I make them create a book designed from their best photos that they took this year.  They are required to make adjustments and manipulations to... Read More

Create a promotional poster for a school event

Posted on Feb 21, 2015 by Jim Babbage Last Activity on Mar 28, 2015

Select an upcoming school event (Black History Month was one of my favorites) and have students work in pairs to create an event poster, using images they have created themselves, along with supplied artwork such as a guest speaker photo, school logo and promo copy about the event. Encourage students to research public domain imagery to help add more visual strength/relevance to the poster and to learn about copyright. During the creation of the poster, students should post iterations of the work on Behance, using WIP. Teachers and students can post helpful, constructive feedback during the creation process. Once the poster is finished, students should post the final work as a project, link it to the WIP and make sure that they share credit and attribution to their partner and list the external resources they used to finish the project. After the assignments are submitted, don't just grade them; invite a range of faculty and staff to view the final work and pick their top three posters. Once the result... Read More

Keywording In Lightroom

Posted on Feb 21, 2015 by Joel Aarons Last Activity on Mar 28, 2015

This workshop looks at how to manage the multitude of images we seem to collect by using Keywords, Filters and Collections. It is, by it's nature, a simple session. But I feel it's important as it addresses a very real problem many photographers have when it comes to organising and accessing their photographs. Attached also is my resource for the lesson - my "cheat sheet". Also the Dropbox link below downloads a zip file with CC images that would be used for this course.

Lightroom 5 - Advanced

This is a recording of a live webinar I did earlier this year. The title says advanced, but it is really more advanced than my beginner webinar. I go into more detail in the library and develop modules than I had time for in the previous session. I go over the advanced search features, for instance.  Link to webinar http://j.mp/1tNFKmx
