    1. Hi Rayon, please could you let us know where you feel he’s missed something as we’ve not heard this before and we would like the opportunity to address your concerns, could you please give us the timecode of when in the video, thank you. Also the action to create and open all of the layers used is available to download from our downloads section.

      1. Hi Karl, thanks for feedback. I believe the error was on my side. I watched it again and it looks ok. I probably somehow skipped time. My apology for that. However I think some photographers would like to see tutorial time/efficiency method if possible. Thank you.

  1. Hi karl. I know youre giving the actions as a part of the course but I would like to know how to make them myself, is that ok?
    I mean the hue adjustment layer and so on..
    thank you in advance

  2. Vicktor sounds like RollSafe, I love it. Best Tuts I’ve ever seen too. Thank you so much for this KT. Well worth the purchase price.

  3. Great video, some of this was beyond overkill at one point. I’m on a 4k monitor and couldn’t see many of the changes he was making.

  4. My $2000 ( LG 38UC99-W) monitor has a terribly hard time picking up those subtle hue and saturation changes on the video. Eizo upgrade in the future.. Good video, thanks guys!
