The Golden Light
► Read more [ j.mp/1NgS8Tw ]

This is a 3-shot panorama of the interior of Solitude Palace just outside of Stuttgart, Germany. The source photos were shot just after sunset which created this nice golden glow because the interior was lit only by the lamps that you see in the image. Some of the lighting effects were also added in Lightroom during the post-processing stage. I will publish a tutorial on this type of re-lighting soon.

Boost the resolution of your photos without buying a new camera
► Read more [ j.mp/1BaZGT0 ]

You have to take more than one photo of a scene and then combine them in a smart way in Photoshop. Check out this article by Ian Norman to see how it's done. 
We’ve seen it in plenty of thriller/crime solver TV shows and movies: upon reviewing some grainy and very low-resolution surveillance footage, someone inev

+Elias Mahfoud Yep. And half pixel shift is exactly what is used e.g. in the new Olympus E-M5 Mark II Hi-Res mode.

Peter Lik is killing it... or is he?

So allegedly, Peter Lik has sold over 100,000 photos for $440 million last year. 440,000,000 bucks??? Now you tell me that there is no money in photography anymore. ;)

Is that for real or a marketing lie stunt? What do you think?
Last December, the art world balked when photographer Peter Lik announced the world's priciest sale of a photograph: a single black-and-white print titled

I am skeptical too. After all, he would do (and say) anything to make himself appear more interesting to buyers. But having said that, I am sure that he makes millions. Maybe just not that many...

My next book: Big surprise coming up tomorrow. Don’t miss it!
► Read more [ j.mp/1AuQN83 ]

I am in the process of finishing the manuscript of my next book Unleash the Power of Lightroom Presets. As a little preview, here is the cover as it will appear on the iPad.

Why am I writing a book about presets?

...you may be asking. Because the preset features in Lightroom are much more versatile and powerful than most people think. There is a whole framework of different presets that helps you make your work much simpler, faster and more creative. Especially develop presets - when use the right way - can transform the way you are editing your photos in Lightroom. And I will show you how.

What's the big surprise?

You'll be able to take advantage of this book and even be a part of it much sooner than you may think. You'll see tomorrow...

Free-hand Blending in Photoshop
► Read more [ http://j.mp/1AOfoBx ]

Blending selective adjustments into an image in Photoshop is one of the key skills you need to master. But what are the tools and techniques you need to really control the area and the intensity of an adjustment you blend in?

In this video tutorial, I am going to show you a simple and yet powerful technique to gently blend in any adjustment layer and give it just the right strength. I am going to use a Quick Selection and the Brush tool to brush in a Curves layer in a very controlled way.

How to shoot high-quality panorama images
► Read more [ j.mp/1MAPwiS ]

Panorama images have something intriguing. They give you a different view of the world around you - a view that does not resemble the way you see a scene with your own eyes or the way a single photograph depicts a scene. But creating a proper panorama is not easy. To avoid visible artifacts in the final image, you need some special equipment, and you need to set it up and use it purposefully.

In this article, I am going to show you the right gear, the procedures for setting it up correctly, and the techniques for shooting a high-quality panorama image.
