- [Voiceover] I think it's time to get our feet wet…with the Gradient Mask tool.…We're gonna work on this body of water right here.…Yes, I know, I know, I'm sorry.…I could not resist that.…Normally with a gradient mask we're working on the sky.…The sky is fine, but this water to me is a little…too bright, I think it's detracting from my main subject,…which are these pillars right here.…So let's fix it.…And that's easy enough to do.…First thing I'm gonna do is create a new later,…and we'll just call it Water, 'cause we're probably…gonna do all sorts of things to it,…and then let's choose Gradient Mask,…so I'm gonna go to my brushing tool here,…hold down, and choose Gradient Mask.…
Now as I draw, in this case I'm gonna draw from…the bottom up, I'm gonna hold down the shift key…so I go in a straight line, and you can see…they give you this nifty indicator, isn't that cool?…That shows you the intensity of the mask, and it goes…from 100% to 0% over the length of that line there.…So I'm gonna take it up to right about here,…
In this course, photographer, author, and educator Derrick Story embarks on an in-depth exploration of Capture One Pro. The course structure mirrors the design of the software itself, with chapters that step through each of the tabs in Capture One Pro, from organizing to editing to refining to outputting images. Derrick investigates Capture One Pro's intuitive library structure, its robust editing tools, its tethered shooting mode for going directly from camera to computer, and its photo printing and sharing features, including options for creating web pages and slideshows straight from Capture One Pro. These tutorials are ideal for former Aperture users who are looking for a new photo editing application, as well as current Lightroom subscribers who are interested in Capture One Pro's more powerful import, color grading, and tethering features.
