Learn how to transform macro images of flowers into magical works of art using Photoshop, Lightroom, Snapseed, and Instagram.
- [Susan] Hi, and welcome. This course is all about how to bring your macro images of flowers to the next level. We'll go step by step through processing photos and explore how to best convey your vision. We'll adjust color and tone, create textures, direct focus, and walk through a number of amazing tools on desktop and mobile apps. Through editing our photos, we'll use combinations of filters and tools in apps like Photoshop, Lightroom, Snapseed, and Instagram, in order to bring the world of macros up close and personal. Thanks for joining me.
Let's have some big fun with tiny images.
First, brush up your botanical vocabulary. Then learn how to take your raw photos and start editing them into something more. Find out how to build texture, enhance color and tone, and direct focus to draw viewers into the areas you want to highlight. Susan switches between different apps on desktop and mobile, to show the strengths of each tool. Follow along to find the workflow that works best for you and your photographic style.
