This course, which is the first in a photo editing series, focuses on global editing - things you can apply to an entire photo. You'll learn the basic photo editing techniques to take your photos straight from the camera through simple transformations that will have you (and your loved ones) saying WOW! You'll learn not only the RIGHT techniques, but also WHEN to use which technique in your arsenal. Even if you're a self-taught photo editor, I've got some amazing tricks you'll love, in the context of a workflow that will have you editing smarter, faster, and better than ever before.

You'll learn how to:
  • Identify the basic vocabulary of photo editing
  • Open, close, combine, resize and save images for print and the web
  • Crop without cropping
  • Control brightness, contrast and exposure
  • Bring out details in your photographs
  • Create gorgeous black-and-white and sepia-tone photos
  • Add texture
  • Improve your camera-to-finished workflow for all your images

In addition, I have bonus tutorials where you'll learn:

  • Photo management
  • Color management
  • Creative cropping
  • Noise reduction
  • Adding type to your photos
  • Sizing files for diptychs, triptychs, and collages (cropping-without-cropping)
  • How to make a before-and-after image to display your edits
