If you need to re-open a PSD file to make further changes, correct an error or add a flare for example, there's a few hoops you need to jump through in Lightroom to make this work properly.
This video shows you a simple way to remove people from your images by using part of another backplate. Using multiple backplates shot on a tripod will make life easier but as this video demonstrates other 'similar' backplates can be used as well.
Before shooting your next location make sure you watch this video.
In just 10 minutes we'll show you how to optimise your shooting technique so you get the best from each location you shoot. You'll save time during both the shooting and editing process, as well as improving the quality of the work you submit.
We've put these videos together for those of you who are interested in tracking your own featured images. Currently this requires specialist software and all our tracking is done using VirtualRig™ Studio.
Whilst the results can be stunning we appreciate this is an expensive piece of software to invest in and would therefore like to make it clear that we're not expecting you to go out and spend money on it. We just wanted to share these tutorials so you can keep developing your skill set overtime.
If you would like to practice these techniques you can download a full working demo version.
In this video tutorial we show you how to check your submission using the smart folders in Lightroom, amend any errors, apply metadata and export for FTP upload.
This two part video tutorial will walk you through the editing process of a location, from getting the raw files from your camera to being ready to grade your imagery.

In this video we will show you how to grade your locations with a consistent look and get your featured images looking good. If implemented properly, the method shown here will allow you to grade imagery quickly, consistently and to a high standard.
