- Hi, I'm Russel Viers, and I take a lot of photos. With six kids, there's always something to capture on camera, whether it's football, lacrosse, school plays, or something else. I also started my newspaper career in 1981 as a reporter photographer. So in my life I've taken my share of shots. For the past 14 years I've been teaching Photoshop to publishing and print professionals around the world. As an Adobe Certified Instructor in Photoshop, I'm called on to speak at conferences as well as on-site training to show techniques for better photo reproduction.
But what we're going to cover in this video isn't better photo reproduction, it's faster photo processing. In this digital camera age, it's not unrealistic for me to shoot a thousand photographs of my son's football game. Shooting is easy: just hold down the button and hope. What kills you is the processing time. Sorting through until you find all of the good ones, separating them from the others, cropping, adjusting color or converting to grayscale, uploading to your web gallery or placing the document. It all takes time.
I'm going to show you how to breeze through images using Bridge and full screen preview, how to rank the photos so you quickly mark the ones you like, and then open them all for synchronized image adjustment and more. When you're done watching these eleven techniques to help you process your digital photos faster, you may very well save hours a week or more. And that's time you can spend doing the fun part: taking more photos.
