ScreenFlow 8 Foundation - Part 2

Date : 8th March 2019

Duration: 45:08

Show ref: SCOM0819

ScreenFlow 8 is an amazing all-in-one solution for the capturing, editing and exporting of screencasts. This is a fantastic way for you to capture and spread knowledge, whether it's for friends, family, colleagues or even documenting processes or procedures for yourself.

Although both iOS 12 and macOS Mojave already have built-in capabilities for recording your screen, they are fairly rudimentary. ScreenFlow is truly optimised for screen captures and is also a full-featured video editor in its own right.

Due to the complexity and feature-rich nature of ScreenFlow, we're going to spread the tutorial over three episodes: the first episode, SCOM0815, introduced the basics of ScreenFlow. In Part 2, Don covers more hints and tips on working with clips on the timeline, gives you a tour of several of the inspectors, and shows you how they integrate with your screencasting and editing workflow.

The series will conclude in a couple of weeks with the third and final episode, where we'll look at some of the more advanced features in ScreenFlow 8.

Aurora HDR 2019

Date : 4th January 2019

Duration: 52:00

Show ref: SCOM0801

If you have ever tried to take a photograph that includes a bright sky and a dark foreground or one in a lowlight situation, you know the frustration in trying to figure out how to expose for various light scenarios. It can be difficult to do, even for professionals. This is where High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography comes into play.

This week, Todd explains what HDR photography is and shows us how to take multiple exposure or bracketed photos to get an optimal exposure. You also learn how to blend these photos using the Aurora HDR 2019 app on the Mac, as well as editing the resulting image and then sharing it as a print or for digital use.

Date : 1st January 2019

Duration: 06:11

Show ref: SCOM0800

Photos on iOS is great for accessing your photos on the go, but managing your library or making batch edits can be a pain.

In this week's tip, Mike shows you how to make easy edits on multiple photos using BestPhotos for iOS. You find out how to quickly delete photos or mark them as favorites, add location metadata, as well as clean up "accidental videos".

Tip - iCloud Shared Albums

Date : 18th December 2018

Duration: 05:11

Show ref: SCOM0796

The holidays are the perfect time to share photos with the people closest to you using the Shared Albums feature in iCloud Photos.

In this week's tip video, Mike shows you how to set one up, add your favorite photos, then invite friends and family to view it. He also goes over the Public Website option so your album is accessible from a web browser on any device.

HashPhotos for iOS

Date : 26th October 2018

Duration: 60:18

Show ref: SCOM0781

Think of HashPhotos as a way to augment Apple Photos. It works on your existing iCloud Photo Library but brings unique capabilities that simply don't exist in the Photos app.

You don't have to choose between Apple Photos and HashPhotos because they work together, allowing you to have the best of both worlds. Most of the features of HashPhotos act on your iCloud Photos Library, so if you create albums and folders in HashPhotos, they show up there, too. Edits you make to your images also carry over.

HashPhotos is incredibly fast, even on a giant iCloud Photos library, making it more efficient for some things than working in Photos on the Mac. But the real power is in the extra features, like adjusting the dates on photos, adding location data, creating film strips, and much more.

This week, Allison takes you on a tour of HashPhotos and shows you all of those features, using both iPad and iPhone.

With respect to the Camera application, most of the changes in iOS 12 are under the hood, while iPhone XS and XS Max bring in some new features.

iMovie is a fantastic video editing package built on the Final Cut Pro codebase and as such, shares many features with its pro-level cousin.

HoudahGeo 5

Date : 24th August 2018

Duration: 53:27

Show ref: SCOM0763

Handling the location and metadata for your photos can be an arduous task. Many photo managing apps don't make this easy and often times the metadata is only contained in the library and doesn't go along with your image files if you move them to another library.

HoudahGeo 5 is an application that streamlines adding location and other metadata to your files. The best part is that it writes that information to the files themselves instead of the library's catalog. HoudahGeo can also communicate with programs like Photos and Lightroom to make sure that those libraries are aware of the changes and perform the necessary updates inside the library.

This week Todd takes you on a tour of HoudahGeo 5. He walks you through the various ways to get photos into HoudahGeo 5 and then covers all of the geocoding and metadata options. You also learn how to add metadata to the files and share them with outside libraries. Exporting that added information to other services that read them is covered in the last section of the show.

Tip - Live Photos Effects

Date : 31st July 2018

Duration: 04:22

Show ref: SCOM0756

Live Photos are a great addition to the iPhone and you can further transform them using one of three effects: Loop, Bounce and Long Exposure.

I love using the Long Exposure effect on any running water or fountains. It makes a huge difference on your photos, without the need for specialist photo equipment or in-depth technical knowledge.

However, when out and about recently, I had a brain freeze and couldn't remember how to access the Live Photo effects - not everything in iOS is as discoverable as it should be. So I thought it would be a great topic for a refresher tip video!

Tip - Photolemur

Date : 19th June 2018

Duration: 06:49

Show ref: SCOM0744

We've covered many applications for enhancing your digital images before, but never one quite so simple yet effective.

Photolemur uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyse your photos and apply selective enhancements to make them pop. No need for a multitude of tweaks to different settings; Photolemur applies them automatically. All you can do is adjust the level of enhancement and that's the beauty of this simple app. It works in either standalone mode for single of multiple photos, or it can be used as a plugin for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as an Apple Photos extension.

In this week's tip video, Don takes you through the different ways Photolemur can be used and shows off some of its stunning results.

Pixelmator Pro

Date : 27th April 2018

Duration: 45:03

Show ref: SCOM0729

This week we take a look at the next generation of an old Mac favorite, Pixelmator Pro. Pixelmator has been around for a while now and is a solid replacement for work normally reserved for Photoshop. The beauty of Pixelmator is that it has a lot of power under the hood for a very reasonable price.

Well, the Pixelmator Team has done it again by introducing an upgraded version: Pixelmator Pro. With its new interface design, the way it takes advantage of Machine Learning and Metal 2, as well as a host of tools for photo and graphics editing, Pixelmator Pro may just be the only photo editing application you need.

In this screencast Todd covers some of the basics of the Pixelmator Pro mainly as it relates to photo editing. He walks you through the interface so you know where to find what you need and while working on a photo project, explain the tools commonly used for editing and enhancing your images.

If you've upgraded your iPad or are just about to, why not repurpose your older device into a full-featured Digital Photo Frame?

Make use of iCloud Photo Sharing and create a shared Photo Album, then display it on the iPad in Guided Access mode. Gift it to friends or family, or keep it on your desk or shelf for a continuously refreshing photo display. You can even collaborate with friends and family and share photos to display.

This short tip shows you how to configure and set up your Digital Photo Frame.

Tip - Video Saving to iOS

Whilst apps like Plex are great for syncing video to your iPhone or iPad for offline viewing, sometimes you just want to download a video from YouTube or Vimeo at a moment's notice. This happened to me last month just as I was about to board a plane.

The good news is that with a little setting up and some specific apps, it is entirely possible to download video content for offline use, directly to your iPad or iPhone.

Adobe Lightroom Update

Date : 13th December 2017

Duration: 48:13

Show ref: SCOM0691

Adobe recently announced some changes to it's Creative Cloud options for Lightroom. With users moving more and more to mobile devices, Adobe decided to go towards a mobile-first solution for Lightroom. In the process, they've separated their desktop and cloud-based products, calling them Lightroom Classic for the desktop version and Lightroom CC for the cloud-based one. This has caused some confusion not only over the names of each of the products but also which one to use in your photography workflow. With that in mind, we thought it would be a good idea to do an update show on Lightroom.

In this screencast, we will look at the differences between the two versions of Lightroom, and go over some of the feature updates and user interface changes in each. We'll also take a look at some ways you can use features from both the desktop and CC versions in your photo workflow, using a real-world example.

Affinity Photo on iPad

We've previously covered Affinity Photo for the Mac but as announced in the 2017 WWDC keynote, Affinity Photo for iPad has now been released.

In this tutorial, Allison Sheridan walks us through Affinity Photo for iPad, the powerful image editor and Art & Design tool from Serif. This isn't a simplified version of the desktop app, but rather a full-featured version optimized for iOS and iPad.

Since we've already covered Affinity Photo for macOS in tutorials 560, 565, and 603, this tutorial focuses on the interface rather than how every single tool works.
