  1. Jason (verified owner)

    I have been using Palette Effects since it’s inception and have been very pleased with the education and the panel that comes with it. The reason I purchased this product was because of my experience with Blake’s other panel and education – The Zone System Express. I was so impressed with the Zone System Express education and panel that I knew that Palette Effects would not disappoint. My hunch was correct and I also use this education and panel (in conjunction with the Zone System Express) in my post processing workflow.

    Both panels along with their educational videos have completely changed my workflow. I went from a workflow that consisted of random kamikaze style editing in Lightroom and Photoshop to one that I systematically use every time I post process. Seriously, this education and the accompanying panels are amazing. I would highly recommend both of them and would encourage you to get the Zone System and Palette Effects bundle. You won’t be disappointed.

    Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know. Blake really did a great job of teaching me color theory and how to apply it to my images. The Palette Effects panel makes it ever so easy BUT Blake explains the “whys and hows” behind the panel so I can make even better use of it – and as he says, it’s not a preset, it is a tool that I can use and manipulate to my specific images to apply my artistic effect. Now if I can just quit walking around my house and seeing complementary colors and analogous color schemes popping up everywhere!!

    The Palette Effects is allowing me to CREATE beautiful images! But the most powerful is the Education, I can not believe how much I’m learning, every video is like a book that I can read over and over and learn new things every time. Thank so much.

    The education section on Color Theory alone is worth the price of the class. The education package also teaches you the hows behind the buttons and effects on the panel so that you understand what is going on when you apply an effect, and understand how to modify that effect to fit your creative vision. While I bought the package to speed up my workflow, I ended up learning so much.

  12. Steven (verified owner)

    Every photographer who has not studied painting should get this. I just finished the course and now have a good basics on color theory. I will need to watch the videos many more times to “own it” and use it to the fullest extent, but now I have the tools I need. I started my 1st darkroom in 1962 and started digital in 2005, so have lots of experience in photography but I have always been lacking in color theory until now. ( I let the print lab fix the colors and never was a painter). Thank you Blake!

  13. Ralph (verified owner)

    been editing for years. technical but no color grading understood the benefits but no clue as to how to do it i bought infinite color panel and exposed to benefits. You have shown me how and i love your approach. It is the workflow that makes it work
    thank you

    Great to use with ZS6. The training material is the best part.

  15. JoAnn (verified owner)

    I’m only on the tone module bust have learned so much already. It’s awesome.

  17. Annale van Schijndel (verified owner)

    I am already proficient in the use of Photoshop, but the way you have structured your panel allows me to use it to express my own creativity. I particularly like having learned the principles through your in-depth tutoring. Your video tutorials were pitched at the right pace and detail to suit me. I also enjoyed your dodge-and-burn panel bought previously; it has taken my processing to a new level.

  18. Robyn (verified owner)

    I still haven’t had time to sort right through it but I’m excited at the prospect of owning something that will benefit my photography editing.

  19. Tomasz Tomaszewski (verified owner)

    I was very impressed with education that comes with both Zone System Express and Palette Effects. It just boosts you confidence to a new high. I would recommend this both education bundle to anyone immaterial of skill level (expert or beginner). Believe me you won’t find this type of detail education anywhere.

  21. André (verified owner)

    Love it!

  22. Jeff (verified owner)

    I have just started the training videos, work is getting in the way! I love your teaching style and your passion for your products. I am enjoying the training videos immensely and can’t wait to start using the palette effects.

  23. Ralf (verified owner)

    Brilliant, step by step approach, I learn a lot!

  24. Natalie (verified owner)

    I watched Blake’s 7 hour free workshop and saw how amazingly easy the Palette Effects are to use. I also liked that he is raising money for such an important cause and felt it was the right time to buy these amazing tools!

    Very well documented. No problem with the installation on my iMac Pro

  27. Alberto (verified owner)

    Some videos with which I think I learn a lot about color. Thanks.

  29. Malcolm (verified owner)

    Illuminating and inspiring

  30. LeRoi (verified owner)

    I really wanted to take my photo editing to another level and didn’t know how to. When I came across your course on Color Theory, I thought that this would be a step in the right direction. It was! And, Palette Effects quickly became a part of my workflow.

    I really do enjoy listening to your passion as you impart your knowledge and the humour you put into it at times. I’ve learned so much!! I’ve watched other videos of people trying to give simpler tips and it makes me want to stick pins in my eyes to ease the pain.

  31. Daburlison (verified owner)

    Excellent product. Palette Effects has greatly improved my post processing. I highly recommend it.

  32. Alvin (verified owner)

    Nearly finished with the training – this goes a long way to providing (nearly) infinite color and tone control to any part of the image – a monster lurks under those buttons – it’s way more than a finishing effect – great for those occasions when the weather is less than ideal at a prime location!

  33. Terri (verified owner)

    Blake doesn’t just explain the buttons, but the theory and reasoning behind them. For many, he shows how to do it manually before showing the button shortcut to save time (and memory). As his promo states, it is the education that is the most important part of Palette Effects.

  34. Rita (verified owner)

  35. Edward (verified owner)

    I have stopped all of my subscriptions for Photoshop and camera training except f64 Elite. This is the best money that I have ever spent on training. Blake offers GREAT support for his products and he WILL answer your emails. f64 is the best way to learn Photoshop and photography related items and to save a lot of time using Blake’s tools AFTER he teaches you what is going on before you click the button. This is a great investment!

  36. Rudi (verified owner)

    Help! I’m addicted to Blake’s tutorials!

  37. Jean-Francois (verified owner)

    Helped me a lot in reducing processing time. Thanks !

  38. David (verified owner)

    I’m only beginning to get a feel for the possibilities of Pallette effects but so far it is awesome.

  39. Robert (verified owner)

  40. Tim (verified owner)

    Awesome addition to my workflow

  41. Murali (verified owner)

    Fantastic ,easy ,speedy and great asset in my workflow.If only you can include the texture effects as described in your tutorials,it will be ‘The Swiss Army knife’.Love to see that in your next upgrade of Palette effects.

  42. Joni (verified owner)

    I have studied books, watched YouTube….all helping me learn the complexity of PS; but to have some one present a clear, connected explanation and then have some tools to move into the intermediate/advanced editing in one package is incredible. Thanks

  43. Randahl (verified owner)

    I am working through the included eduction videos now but I have already learned several new techniques to improve my images. Great bundle!

  44. Mark (verified owner)

    I am working my way through the videos. You are giving me knowledge and tools to reach my visionary goals in a logical sequential manner. I like your explainations of how you built the one click buttons. Your painting principals background gives you an edge over anyone else I know that understands PS.

  45. JohnL (verified owner)

  46. Reg (verified owner)

    I’ve had the Palette Effects panel for a week and I’ve just been working with the powerful black and white section so far.
    I have to say that I really like it a lot.
    The clear explanatory videos are excellent.
    They have helped me to understand how to use the tools on my own images and I’m looking forward to getting into the colour section next.
    Please let me know when you have another sale – I’ll go for Zone Express and Dodge/Burn panels

  47. Wayne Henson (verified owner)

    Try so hard to bring out the artist…. And this is really helping

    Just started playing with this. I have been a PS user for years but this “ups my game”. Awesome!!

  50. Gary (verified owner)

  51. Kevin (verified owner)

    All you need to know about colour and improving your photographs. Helpful video content in the course.

  52. Sin Wah (verified owner)

    My favourite section ? The in-depth explanations.

  53. Antony (verified owner)

    A little bit Long-winded and at times you speak too fast.

  54. SALIM (verified owner)

    This was a very good investment I made and it will really help me with my post-processing. Love the panel! It makes my work so easy.

  55. Mick (verified owner)

    You are my fav educator to use one of your fav comments, awesome! I am slowly getting through the lessons but trying to avoid the urge to jump forward to start applying the effects before completing the course. Should I still be working the tone and colour in ZSE and not touch tone and colour in Palette FX. I am concerned about using both. Where does Dodge and Burn Pro fit in the mix. If at all? I have saved all your latest sharpening actions but where should they fit in the workflow? Very please that the workbook is a black and white pdf as easy to bring off on my cheap office printer and does not need my Epson 3880. The manual I have found can be printed and ring bound by local print shop for £24. Thanks again Blake for your invaluable training and advice. Keep up the great work.

  56. Charles Fleischman (verified owner)

    I just started to work with Pallete Effects and I have used the Black and White adjustments. It’s relatively easy and intuitive but I have to review it several more times to become comfortable. I especially like your explanations and the background and I have tried to generate the adjustments as you described them.

  57. Jaap (verified owner)

    Need time for learning, and time is my bottleneck 😒

  58. Alvin (verified owner)

    The photos in the color tutorials did not have enough colors for me, I thought they were kind of drab. Other than that I like it.

  59. garry (verified owner)

    The instructional videos packaged with this extension are first rate!

  60. Jay (verified owner)

    Blake is a great educator and his enthusiasm is contagious. He has made this very important but complex subject quite accessible by explaining the concepts and then distilling that knowledge into application through panels. There is a lot to learn here and mastery of the material will require revision of topics a few times and experimentation. By including ways to mask image these panels become self sufficient. I expect to get most of my post-processing done through PE3. One area that was a bit short of my expectations was Workflow. It did not meet my expectations in terms of selection of the images-architecture, interior design, portrait but not enough example of landscapes. I admire Blake’s work for his landscape and I got interested in this program for the same. I think it will be a great idea to include at least one landscape image which includes application of most important feature of the palette. Overall great value for time and money invested.

    Good course

  62. Bjoern (verified owner)

    Works wonderful and easy. Not cheap, but worth the money

  63. Jean-Pierre (verified owner)

  64. Brad (verified owner)

    Palette effects is awesome. I am partially colour blind, so it helps me to get colours in my images balanced and “normalised”. The colour theory tuition is clear and very well presented, with passion and enthusiasm. Thanks Blake.

  65. Anthony (verified owner)

    Vastly increased my understanding of colour in image processing. Viewed all of the video training (can be overwhelming and time consuming) but necessary to understand the background and tool use. I am reviewing a few of the videos again to enable me to actually have a go at using the tools – tone, colour and painting tools. I already paint areas of my images using colour layers in Photoshop so this tool set particularly appealed to me. Sometimes it is the simple stuff that I struggled with – took me ages to figure out how to turn the build pallette screen off to get back to the image (just press exit cross) but that’s me. Got a feeling that I will be using the tools for both mono and colour images a lot once I have got used to them. Can recommend the tool set. Thanks Blake.

  66. Heinrich (verified owner)

    I am a Photoshop beginner and find Palette Effects very helpful

  67. Larry Buckley (verified owner)

    The education package is great, way too much to take in with the first watching therefore; will have to go through again. The palette effects panel works great, it takes practice to get familiarized with all of it’s capabilities. All in all it rates very high in regards to the bundle.

  68. John (verified owner)

    Using Palette Effects for just a week, I am able to use Photoshop to draw out the best from my photos. Moreover, the education videos are outstanding. You explain complex details clearly yet without oversimplifying the features of Photoshop. As a result, I can see myself using it at more advanced levels. Thank you for a great tool and educational experience.

    A tremendous amount of material backed up by Blake’s expert tutorials. Not a bunch of presets but a venue to launch your creativity!

  71. William (verified owner)

  72. Tony (verified owner)

    Still working through the videos. Processing the information and lessons. Your approach is logical and thorough. I especially like that you leave the layers in so that it is possible to customize beyond the button presets.

  73. Oliver (verified owner)

    Awesome masterclass and palette.

  74. Gerard (verified owner)

    Amazing! this is great stuff

  75. Donald warden (verified owner)

  76. John (verified owner)

    Blake’s best yet (and that’s saying a lot!!) Would give it 6 stars if I could. Would highly recommend going SLOWLY through all the education and do a lot of experimentation. For those that are somewhat color blind (like myself), you can easily use the Analyze Palette #2 and then use the Eyedropper on the Color Picker to easily see what colors you are dealing with. If you’re anything like me, it will likely cause you to re-assess previously work. However, it is so much fun and I have radically improved many photos that I used to think were good. I also find Blake’s personal work ethic incredibly impressive and inspiring! If you put in the work, there is no way you won’t regret this purchase.

  77. Mike (verified owner)

    Great course on color theory and Photoshop.

  78. Eric (verified owner)

    Enjoying Blake’s tutorials very much. What i like about PE is that Blake make it easy for you to be in total control of final result. Blake makes a confusing topic into manageable one.

  80. Frank (verified owner)

    There are plenty of opportunities to get the best out of my photos. It is a very good tool.

  81. Les (verified owner)

    I have just opened the Palette Effects bundle and only gone through the first section of B&W training so far, I am going to have to do it again to fully understand what is going on, but I was blown away with the control I had to make great a black & white image so easily. While watching the training for the first time I practiced on one of my own images and it jumped off the screen – excited! Blake’s tools and training are excellent, I can’t wait to progress from the B&W section onto the colour theory. Cheers Blake.

  82. Ray Grace (verified owner)

    It’s early days at the moment. The panel was easy to install and the very comprehensive instructions di help considerably. I’ve only had the bundle a week or so and have had little time to play with it. I’m gradually working my way through the video tutorials where, at the moment, I have completed the ‘Tone’ section. The videos are very thorough and it’s impossible not to be infected by Blake’s enthusiasm. I can say that having used the Tone section on some of my images I have found the pallette extremely easy to use and the results have been promising. I’m sure that, as I progress, the same will be true of using the Pallette on my colour images. I’m looking forward to dipping into it further.

  83. Giorgio (verified owner)

  84. Peter (verified owner)

    In the beginning I felt as if I had bit off more than I could chew. However, after watching the videos a few times and experimenting on my images, my confidence is gradually growing. An overall great product

  85. Martin (verified owner)

    I must first look to your videos. The first impression is good.

  86. Kathy (verified owner)

    I love this new tool and the education about color theory and the use of color. It’s a real time saver and I now have more ways to create a better audience experience. Thank you for all the hard work that went into this bundle. I highly recommend this product.

  87. Marilyn (verified owner)

    Was skeptical re whether I would like or could learn Palette Effects III. I LOVE it, Blake’s teaching style fits my learning style perfectly, and the panel is truly amazing!

  88. Michael (verified owner)

    I am taking my time will take me a lot longer than normal to get through it, really like and enjoy what I have seen

  89. Thomas (verified owner)

    Hi Blake. Since I was watching your tutorials for a long time it was my first time to purchase an app for PS. You really did a great job. Congratulations. Even if I am a skilled Photoshop user since PS3, PE3 will help me a lot to process my pictures with more efficiency. Your detailed knowledge about tones and colors and how to work them out in PS is the base for this great tool. Would buy it again 😉

  90. James (verified owner)

    I have purchased all 3 of Blake’s panels (CLIR, ZSE and PE III). I can say that all of them are great additions to my workflow . I find the more I use them the more I get from them and the tutorials seem to have more in them every time I view them. These are products that keep on giving and worth every penny.

  91. Kim (verified owner)

    As with all of your products and training, PE is top notch. I’m only now dipping my toe into the water, but this will definitely change my use of PhotoShop!

  92. Edward (verified owner)

    Excellent Photoshop Plugin, highly recommended for those who will want to take their creation to the next level, taking advantage of Blake Rudis Artistic background in developing a very useful tool to speed up the editing process.

  93. Patrick McCloskey (verified owner)

    A thorough explanation of colour theory and colour grading as well as a plugin to implement both. Blake’s enthusiasm for teaching the subject is the best part of the package; the plug-in is a bonus. I wholeheartedly recommend this course.

  94. Alvin Robinson (verified owner)

  95. David (verified owner)

    This is such an excellent course. I am half way through it, and am enjoying it so much and learning heaps from Blake. Thank you so much for sharing your years of knowledge Blake.

  96. GARY (verified owner)

    what can I say been following Blake for a while now and thanks to Blake he has unleashed the full power of Photoshop for me before that it was just another piece of software to process raw photos .. his courses and panels really help to understand Photoshop and the tools you have available to you it is nice to have complete control over your photos and the way they look instead of some 3ed party software plugin software preset .. can’t say enough ..

  97. David (verified owner)

    The Palette Effects bundle is well put together and puts phenomenal power into the user’s hands. The education pieces are integral as you would just be shooting in the dark using these amazing tools without it. I’m still working through the video education, but so far I have been impressed with how Blake logically builds the modules so your knowledge builds on itself.

  98. Bob (verified owner)

    Working my way through the Palette Effects Education Bundle has been an interesting experience – more interesting than I expected. I bought the course because I wanted to learn more about how to use color. The course delivered as expected with respect to color theory, but it went well beyond expectations. I’m sure that the concepts in this course will lead me to create images with deeper emotion and impact. And the Panel and Blake’s workflow information will facilitate my process.

  99. Wanda (verified owner)

    Well done!

  100. Patric (verified owner)

    Although I have worked with Photoshop for many years, I didn’t know that I can have such control over my colors. One of the best purchases I have made.
    Blake not only delivers a system, but also includes an education that in an pedagogical way gives you the knowledge to put your own style on your photos.

  101. Ingeborg (verified owner)

    Excellent course . Has made improving my images so much easier than before. Thanks

  104. Lewis (verified owner)

    I am excited about the opportunities Pallette Effects offers. The aids for Colour Theory and the tools for enhancing colour harmony are excellent. Colour dodging and burning plus enhancements are fairly easy to use.

  105. Thomas (verified owner)

    Buy it! You’ll not be disappointed. Then, study all of Blake’s tutorials that accompany the PE3 Panel, and then practice, practice, practice! You’ll come away from this experience with so much more Ps knowledge than you had before buying it and your photos will show it!
