Have you ever taken a series of photos only to realize that a different person had their eyes closed in every photo? Ugh.

Or maybe someone is looking away in one photo, but everyone else looks great and you just wish you could replace that persons head?

In this free Photoshop tutorial video, I show you my technique for replacing a head.

A photographer asked me if I could show her how to remove a cold sore in Photoshop. This might seem tricky due to the size and placement (edge of the lip), but with a bit of Photoshop know-how, this fix did not take long.

After I recorded the Photoshop screencast, I thought it might be useful to show how this can also be accomplished in Lightroom. Several of the newer photographers that I mentor don’t have Photoshop and I didn’t want them to feel left out!

As such, this week’s free video tutorial is a two for one! Enjoy!

Last week, I shared a few quick tips for improving Autumn photographs using Lightroom. In this free video tutorial, I share how to significantly improve a photo using the radial filter tool. This incredible tool was introduced in Lightroom 5, and it’s an incredibly efficient way to effect change in specific areas of your photographs.

The two photos that I share were taken in the exact same location, one week apart. What a difference a week makes, the leaves were gone!

    Great tutorial, Heather! This technique will greatly improve the time it takes for me to make an image pop. Thanks for sharing!

When I say, “one minute,” I mean that it takes me that long to make these particular changes when I’m not explaining the techniques. I think it’s mostly a matter of knowing what to use and why.

Understanding your toolkit is essential to an efficient workflow.

When a photo appears on my screen, I know immediately the changes I’d like to make.

In this two for one free video series, I share some of my techniques for the adjustment brush, as well as how I approach panel management.
