Hands-on Photo Tips: How to remove halos in your HDR images

/
Are you getting halos in your HDR images? Sometimes, you find the perfect setting in your HDR software, but right at that setting, halos start showing up and ruin your image. These ugly bright fringes around high-contrast edges are a well-known and common problem in HDR photography. In this video, I will first go over some tips to avoid halos in the first place. Then I will show you how to get rid of them in Photoshop by darkening those halo regions selectively.

Hands-on Photo Tips: Creating a Non-destructive Vignette

/
Darkening the edges of your photos can really help you in getting more depth and in leading your viewers' eyes to the important elements of your photo. This is called "vignetting". In this video tutorial, you will learn how to create a vignette using non-destructive editing. That is, you will not change the pixels of your image in any way. Instead, the vignette will be on a separate layer on top of your image, and you can turn it on an off or change it at any time, independently of your work on the photo. I will show you how to do this in Photoshop.
