Most astrophotographers employ Adobe Photoshop at some point in their workflow when processing astro images. But how well?
In this 3.5-hour workshop Alan will demonstrate many tips and techniques for using Photoshop to process everything from simple nightscapes, to time-lapse night sky movies, and to stacked deep-sky images, with the focus on working with raw images from DSLR and Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens cameras.
The emphasis will be on making those raw files look great by employing a “non-destructive” workflow using smart filters, adjustment layers, and masks, highlighting techniques often overlooked by astrophotographers who learned Photoshop many years ago and have never unlearned their bad habits!
Alan will show you how to transform images from raw to rave, employing only Photoshop. He’ll show you how to end up with images good enough for the RASC Observer’s Calendar or Handbook cover!
