In Photoshop CS6 for Photographers, author, photographer, and teacher Chris Orwig explores Photoshop from the perspective of the photographer.
The course details the features and techniques behind enhancing and retouching photos, preparing them for print and online publishing, and much more. Chris demonstrates how to make basic edits in Camera Raw, develop and save color profiles, work with layers and selections, tone and sharpen, and retouch images while retaining their natural character.
Chris also shares some creative tips and project ideas, such as converting a photo to black-and-white and enhancing a portrait with hand-painted masks. The course also covers workflow details, such as organizing images in Bridge and Mini Bridge, optimizing Photoshop preferences, and calibrating your monitor.
Here we're going to take a look at how we can export and render our projects, so that we can share what we've done with others. There are couple of ways that you can access the menu which allows you to export. One technique that you can use as you can click on this little arrow icon to open up this dialog or you can also go to the file pulldown menu and here you can choose Export and then Render Video. Both of these techniques access the same menu, and this menu allows you to export this file. I'll go ahead and name this one out as Annika and then dash surfing.
We'll save this in the same folder, and then down here, we have a few presets which are really helpful. We can use a preset of high quality or we can change this. Let's say that what we want to do is we want to view this on our iPhone or maybe an iPad. Here we could select that preset, and then by doing that, you'll notice that it'll change a few of these settings, so that this will work well on a device like that. Next in regards to our size, we can also customize this as well, so that we can view this on different devices.
After having done that, it's really quite easy, all that you need to do is to click Render. Now the one thing to think about is that when you're working with video files, this rendering is going to take some time, because what it's doing is it's taking these video files which are actually pretty big and now it's making them smaller. It's building all that we've done inside of this document and really compressing and optimizing it into another file format. And because that's going to take time, you want to think about how you integrate this into your workflow.
In other words, you'll want our render when you don't need to work on Photoshop, so that that isn't really distracting you or taking up your time, because here you can see as I click around Photoshop is locked down, exporting, and rendering this project. So, what I typically like to do is to render these near the end of the day, so that this can happen in the background, so that you're not just sitting there waiting for that file to render or export. And after you finish the exporting process, what you can then do is take that file and copy it to a device or you can upload it online for others to enjoy.
And that note, that wraps up our conversation about how we can work with video in Photoshop.
