It Only Takes One Hour

I’ve managed to condense my entire RAW workflow into just one hour of video tutorials. That means you can learn how I do it without investing countless hours or days watching painfully boring videos.

Learn at Your Own Pace

Rather than facing one huge video tutorial, I’ve broken everything down into 25 mini video tutorials, so if you’d like to repeatedly watch the video just about ‘sharpening’ for example, you can get to it easily and quickly.

The total time of all 25 videos is just over one hour. You can either watch them in the order I created them or just skip to where you need help the most.

Make Your Photos Pop Right Now

This is how I edit ALL of my images. No matter what type of shot I’ve captured, every single image that I publish goes through this RAW workflow first. Now you can learn my entire RAW image processing workflow from beginning to end.

From opening your first RAW file, to saving high quality TIFF files for print and web ready JPEGs. I’ll show you how it’s done.

Using my RAW workflow, I have won awards, competitions and been published in a variety of magazines and printed publications. Learn these skills and maybe you could enjoy the same success with your images.

Video Makes Learning Easy

Visual learning is often the easiest way to learn a new skill. With these 25 HD video screencasts, you’ll see my every move while I narrate and talk about every step of my RAW workflow. It’s the next best thing to sitting beside me without having to put up with my coffee addiction.

The MP4 video files are all HD 1080p quality and will work on both PC and Mac as well as all popular tablets.

RAW Files Included

I’ve included two RAW files that were hand picked for their glorious imperfections. These files require some correction and enhancement that perfectly demonstrates my typical RAW processing workflow.

You can follow along with your own computer and process the images in tandem with the tutorials. Through repetition you’ll become adept at this RAW processing workflow.

Learn how to edit your RAW files like a pro with my entire RAW workflow for Adobe Lightroom and ACR (Adobe Camera RAW in Photoshop).

System Requirements

  • Any Device that can play MP4 video files
  • Up to date copy of Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop with the latest version of ACR
  • Adobe Bridge (not essential but highly recommended)
