Automatically level and fix perspective of photos using the Upright feature in Adobe Lightroom 5

In this video, I show how to automatically level your pictures, and fix the perspective using the new Upright feature in Adobe Lightroom 5.

Using the Healing Brush in Adobe Lightroom 5

In this video, I show how to use the Healing Brush in Adobe Lightroom 5. You can use it to fix blemishes, remove unwanted objects, persons, and even foxes! If you’re used to using it in Adobe Photoshop, it’s basically the same thing, except now you can do it all in Lightroom 5.

Manually Synchronize Audio and Video files in Adobe Premiere Pro CC and CS6 based on Clip Markers

In this video, I show you how to manually synch audio and video files and merge them in Adobe Premiere Pro CC and CS6 using clip markers.

Automatically synchronize audio and video files in Adobe Premiere Pro CC based on aud

In this video, I show how to automatically synch audio and video files in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. You no longer have to do it manually.

The big advantage to merging the files like this is you can very easily move and cut the video and audio files as a single block, making your editing much easier.

From my experience, it doesn’t work 100% of the time, but it works often enough that it’s worth taking the 5 secs to try it.

Apply a Lumetri color correction Look to a clip in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

In this video, I show how to use the new Lumetri Looks in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. These allow you to apply a very quick color correction to achieve specific looks, from cinematic to sepia.

Apply a LUT using the new built in Lumetri plugin in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

In this video, I show a new feature which comes with Adobe Premiere Pro CC: the ability to add a Look up table (LUT) without any external plugins.

I find it much easier to use than the LUT buddy, taking only a few seconds to apply the effect, select the LUT file, and you’re done.

How to upgrade your Adobe Creative Cloud CS6 apps to Adobe CC

Adobe Creative Cloud CC is finally here, and in this video I will show how you can upgrade from Adobe Creative Cloud CS6 to Adobe CC.

This way you can have access to the CC version (a.k.a. CS 7.0) of your favourite Adobe applications: Adobe Premiere, Photoshop, After Effects, Speed Grade, Audition, Illustrator, and also Adobe Lightroom 5.0

Adobe Creative Cloud CC Creative Suite CS 7.0 Announced

In this video, I talk about Adobe’s announcement of a new version of Adobe Creative Suite, called Adobe CC, short for Adobe Creative Cloud. It is also known as Adobe Creative Suite CS 7.0.

They already released Adobe Lightroom 5.0 which for my workflow hasn’t really changed much yet, but I’m looking forward to some of the new features of Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects.

Notably their support of ATI video cards for hardware acceleration, auto-synch video and audio files in Adobe Premiere, and built-in support for LUT support and improved colour correction.

Visit www.adobe.com to find out more information.

And as soon as the updates are available and I have some time to experiment with it, I’ll provide tutorials and reviews on those new features.

Which new features are you looking forward to in the new update?

Processing a Timescape video taken from RAW images using Adobe AE and Premiere Pro CS6

In this video, I show how I create my timescape videos (timelapse + landscape = timescape) from RAW images using Adobe After Effects to do the colour correction, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. This is the simplest workflow I could find.

NOTE: I hear that Adobe CC CS7.0 will improve the processing speed of ATI cards, looking forward to that upgrade!

RAW images are a bit more work than working from .jpeg, but they offer you more flexibility in post-production. I’ll do another video to cover the RAW vs JPEG advantages and disadvantages.

Adobe Creative Cloud Review

In this video, I do a review of the Adobe Creative Cloud.

I have been using the Adobe Creative Cloud for over 6 months now, and it has improved my workflow quite a lot. I love the price structure – being able to pay monthly instead of a huge chunk, especially since I do both photography and videography, so in the old model, I would’ve needed to fork out over 2500$ for the Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection, and over 500$ a year on upgrades.
