I’ll show you how to make your photos leap out of your computer screen with eye popping colours, sharpness and clarity in these 25 HD Photoshop tutorials. 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.

Most photographers use either Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw/Photoshop to process their RAW files.

In these videos I regularly switch between both of these platforms to show you the differences in the interfaces even though all of the tools we use are identical.

Both Adobe Lightroom and ACR (in Photoshop) have the same tools and functionality so it doesn’t matter which of these apps you prefer when it comes to RAW file processing. The steps we take will be the same.

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.

  • Up to date copy of Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop with the latest version of ACR
