Collated by Ken Payne

The following video tutorials were collated by Ken Payne. Time and technology have moved on. There are references on the page to Lightroom 5 and 6 which Adobe no longer supports. You have to buy into the Adobe CC plan. Many people have switched to other software such as On1 and Affinity.

These links are provided as an aide-memoire. The Digital Imaging Group cannot be held responsible if you find that many of the techniques described no longer work effectively.
