Why Auto Hiding Your Edit Pins Can Help

Hi y’all. It’s Tuesday, and Benjamin Warde has a quick little 60-second (or less) video on why Auto Hiding pins can be awesome when you’re working with the Adjustment Brush.

Not too shabby, eh? 🙂

Hope you found that helpful, and we’ll catch ya back here tomorrow (well, that’s the plan, so stick to the plan). 😉

Best,

Creating The “Tilt Shift” Look in Lightroom

Mornin’ everybody — glad to see you here today. 🙂

Normally, we’d go to Photoshop and use its Blur Gallery “Tilt Shift” filter to create the “tiny town” look made famous by Tilt Shift lenses — where you photograph a scene from a high angle, (maybe on a rooftop or from a hotel window), and then applying this effect makes the scene look like a tiny toy model. Anyway, here’s a way you can do the whole thing in Lightroom.

Cool that you can do the whole thing right within Lightroom.

OK, ready for a cool Photoshop technique?
I did a step-by-step tutorial over on my daily blog on how to create a drop shadow effect that was inspired by “The Gallery at KelbyOne” winner Mark Wegner’s portfolio. When we showed Mark’s work, one of my readers asked how to create a similar shadow effect, and that’s what I did today over on the blog.

Hope you find at least one of those helpful.

Stop by back tomorrow — it’s very possible that I’ll have something unusually super cool to show you (OK, it’s more than possible). 🙂

Best,

-Scott

P.S. We’re around 60-days from the Photoshop World Conference in Orlando (we’re not doing Vegas this year – just Orlando) so come out and spend three days with us learning and laughing, and making new friends. Click right here to watch the official trailer (betcha it makes you wanna come to Orlando with us!).

How The “Flow” Control For The Adjustment Brush Brings Awesomeness

It’s Tuesday (and I’m back from my quick one-day trip to NYC), and it’s time for a Lightroom Coffee Break with Benjamin Warde. This one is about what the often misunderstood (or avoided altogether) “Flow” slider does when you use it with the Adjustment Brush. This is really a helpful one to know.

Thanks Benjamin — now we’re all going with the flow! (Sorry, I couldn’t help myself).

Tomorrow on “The Grid” it’s Stella!
Pulitzer prize-winning photo editor, the wonderful Stella Kramer, is my guest tomorrow on The Grid, and we are super psyched. PLUS, she’s doing a special “KelbyOne Members Only” Webcast where she’s critiquing member-submitted Websites and it is going to be an incredible eye-opener, so don’t miss it.

Who: Stella Kramer
What: The Grid (our live weekly photography show)
When: 4PM ET tomorrow
Where: http://kelbytv.com/thegrid

Check out the official trailer for Stella’s class on Building Your Portfolio: Editing and Sequencing Your Photos (below)

Love, did I mention love?
Today is a day…of love. Happy Valentine’s Day everybody and I hope you get a big ol’ giant red heart filled with chocolate or B&H Photo gift cards (both are totally appropriate).

Hope you have an awesome day…of love. 🙂

Best,

-Scott
