Hey Folks,

It’s Wednesday which means the latest Episode (Episode 6) of my Photography, Photoshop and Lightroom Video Podcast Show is now online!

In this episode I kick off with a few Photoshop techniques to show how you can first of all create a completely bespoke background using just one image file; this is perfect for when you just can’t find the right background you’re after!

Then I show you a cool technique for giving your images the HDR toned look BUT in a way that means you have complete control over how much or how little you want of the effect. For the Lightroom section I go through how I first of all organise my files so that ALL of the images I have to retouch in my entire catalogue can be found with just one click and then how I prepare a series of images for retouching quickly and easily.

Hope you enjoy it.

As always if you have any questions or comments or maybe a tip, trick or technique you’d like to see in a future episode just drop me a line to or leave a comment in the section below.

In the mean time if you get the urge to share the video with anyone you know that you think might like to learn some FREE techniques/tips then that would be AWESOME!

Have a great Wednesday and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.

    Hi Glyn,

    Another great episode, and I like the tips, particularly the smart collection tip in Lightroom.

    In your Lightroom video Glyn, you refer to using the keyboard shortcut of ‘E’ to return to the Survey Mode. I think that was a slip of the tongue 😉 as you in fact returned to using the Loupe View to view the developed images of the magician.

    I find I often use the ‘Survey Mode’ (keyboard shortcut ‘R’) for selecting a number of images. It’s very useful to see how a set of images might work together, as it gives thumbnails of all the images you have selected on one screen. I often use it for viewing a set of images that I am going to use for a talk – it gives me a global view.

    I also am a big fan of using the compare mode (keyboard shortcut ‘C’ ) to look at whether one image is better than another. I often zoom in to see whether one is sharper than another. I sometimes shoot wildlife using the high-speed drive resulting in a number of similar looking images, but can find that some are sharper. This tool allows you to make a side-by-side comparison at 100%.

    Hope this helps others too
