Take your photography and photo editing skills to the next level with the help of Gale Zuckler in this on-demand webinar.

No matter how wonderful your image is out of the camera, it needs some adjustments and editing to truly sing. Photo editing/ processing makes a good picture great, and a great photo amazing.

If you’ve ever wondered how to make your knitwear photos as dynamic as those you admire, then this webinar download is for you!

There’s no need to learn PhotoShop to achieve the imagery you dream of. Gale will demonstrate and guide you through free, and inexpensive, user-friendly online software.

With this webinar, you'll learn:

  • How to use photo editing tools/adjustments to improve your photographs.
  • The best order in which to make photo editing adjustments.
  • Ideas of how to create a signature look so your images are immediately recognizable.
  • How to add text, graphics, and create photo collages of your photography.

You’ll learn how small and large adjustments in photo editing have a big impact in your photography. You’ll also learn how to remove small problems, and embellish assets in photographs.

Gale will cover the complete process in which to edit a photo, from deciding which photo from a shoot to work on, to straightening, cropping , adjusting overall exposure and then making smaller improvements such as reducing shadows, removing blemishes, fixing up colors, adding warmth and adding blurring to mimic depth of field controls.

Gale will also explain final touches that allow you to create a signature look to your photography, including adding text onto your imagery and the creation of easy collages or grids of images that display effectively online.

Great Photo Editing
For me, this webinar was the best value for money that I've received in a long time. The information was exactly what I was hoping for. After watching it just once, I feel confidant that I will be able to better edit the photos I use in my knitting patterns. I would love a follow up webinar by Gale Zucker one day.
