Video Corner #158: How to Use CMYK Color Channels in Adobe Photoshop

As I attempt to get caught back up on all things going on around the Corner after being out of town on a family emergency the past week, expect a flurry of blog posts, starting with the ‘Photoshop Monday’ Video Corner (which obviously should have been posted yesterday). The video today continues on from the past couple (that discussed the RGB channels and LAB channels in Adobe Photoshop) by looking at the CMYK channels (which is primarily used for printing). While these short, weekly videos are packed full of great tips and tricks, if you want to get the most out of Adobe Photoshop, you may want to check out the Total Training Online and DVD Software Training full packages (like photography classes, but you can do it all online on your own time). I’ve used Total Training myself, and I highly recommend them - check out their library of online classes today.

Video Corner #119: Controlled Viewing Conditions

Two weeks ago, in our continuing look at DIY Photography in our ‘Photography Monday’ Video Corner videos, we learned about monitors & calibration. Last week, we learned about “Delta E Tolerance” - what it is and how to test your tolerance with the Pilot Color Tolerance Exercise (you can see that video here). This week we look at “soft proofing” with controlled viewing conditions. If you only take one thing away from this particular video, pay close attention to how the different light temperatures can make such a huge difference on how your photographs look (starting around the 0:55 mark). Now imagine what impact different lighting can have when you’re actually taking photographs!! Something to think about before using those cheap Wal-Mart lights again…
