Description

Masking in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom is not easy. You have a whole new interface with several new mask additions and they threw out the concept of the Adjustment Tools like bad bathwater. Several items have been rearranged and the whole Add, Subtract, and Intersect Mask thing… Forget about it!

Or should you forget about it?
Would that be the best idea for your workflow?

Absolutely not! The Masking area in ACR and Lightroom that came packaged with the Photoshop CC 2022 release is incredible! While there are several changes to the way we worked in the past, it is all for the better, I promise.

In this course, I will help break down some of the barriers you may have with the Masking tools. I will supply you with knowledge and some incredible presets that use the principles of my Zone System Express as their base.

After this course, not only will you be making better masks with the presets I have built, but you will know how to make your own and how to use this new feature to its maximum potential!

In this RAW Masking Course, You Will Learn:

► How to Install Masking Presets
► The Principles of the New Masking Section in ACR 14 and Lightroom
► Difference between and use of Luminance and Color Range Masks
► How the Zone System relates to Masking in ACR
► Intro to the ZSE RAW Presets!
► Understanding “Math Masks”
► Complete RAW Workflow with Masking Section and Presets
► BONUS – How to make your very own MASKING PRESETS!

•••The Course in a Nutshell•••

•  10 unique video tutorials
•  100 minutes of education
•  37 ACR 14.0 and Lightroom Presets for ULTIMATE Masking Control
•  Access to all PDF’s and Follow Along Files

    Blake, you’ve done it again. We, your students, are the best-fed kids in the photo art world. Gawh (yea, I know, it’s not a word except in comic books) your mind is an engine, you share and you teach. You take coal and turn it into diamonds in weeks, you’re an alchemist without the magic and tricks and on top of that, YOU SHARE. I can’t wait to see what strikes you next! Thank you!

  2. f64 Elite Member

    Wow. You’re right, Blake. I’ve just finished my first run through and I did a little experimenting along the way. Now I’m looking forward to a rerun and letting your education package sink in. Thank you very much.

  3. f.64 Elite Member

    Thanks again for a VERY WELL DONE educational series. I probably would have not explored this new addition to ACR without you providing this course and just gone ahead with my ‘old, as usual’ workflow in ACR before going into PS.

    Blake, thank you for jumping on this Lightroom/ACR upgrade as fast and as thoroughly as you did. You’ve done it again! — given me the basics and then the tools to apply them. The fun part is the experimenting that follows. Also, your subsequent Black Friday video (I already own all the products) was absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!

    I love everything Blake does on education. I learn so much and this is again really something that makes working on my images so much more satisfying. As Blake says: it works on any kind of image. I’m not a landscape photographer. I photograph animals, but it works great on my images as well. Also when Blake explains something it’s not dry and technical. It’s very easy to understand and always great fun too.

    I’m still learning how to use ZSE-RAW effectively in Lightroom and in Photoshop. The most significant problem I had with the program was in installation. I use both Mac and PC machines and the same problem existed for both. Instead of the icons shown in the install video I only saw zipped files. After many attempts to install the files I finally dragged the zipped files and the system was installed.

    I encountered difficulties with generating the masks and with the differences between working with both Lightroom and ACR. However, after mistake after mistake, persistence paid off and I am fairly confident I can mask almost any area and subject.

    Firstly I would like to thank Blake for this outstanding course on raw level image processing using new masking features within Camera raw in Photoshop 2022. Thew concept of having zone masking with the aid of luminosity and color range masking in raw level is simply incredible and Blake has done a fantastic job in guiding through this process step by step in a very lucid manner. I am very thankful to Blake for this course.

    I have found Z Express awesome! I can see the formidable potential, but am struggling to realise the potential for myself. I do not have as much time as I would like, so have struggled onto a plateau of learning based on your tutorial videos. I intend to go back and review the videos. But I feel there is an opportunity for you to create some further tutorial videos giving worked examples. It would be good to have a course for which I could sign up for Elite membership for a number of months over winter and learn to a new level.
    Many thanks, I have enjoyed the product.

    Zone System Express RAW is a game changer. I am still reviewing the videos to learn the process, but as Blake has stated, do not spend too much time on his images, get out and do yours. I can now do things, that frankly I was too lazy to learn, or the process was too difficult to make part of your editing routine. I do not own Zone System Express 7 for Photoshop, but to make all of these edits in RAW is more than I could have hoped for. Thanks Blake for taking what Adobe is giving us and making better and easier to use. Gary, Tampa

    When I saw the training for this I was a little skeptical at first. After all I was already using Blake’s Zone System Express and Palette Effects and all the associated training. I figured armed with that I could apply those concepts to the new masks in Lightroom/ACR.

    In truth I probably COULD have after a lot of trial and error, since Blake’s earlier education materials were so comprehensive. However, I decided to purchase the training and presets in order to bypass all that extra time …

    So glad that I did!

    The ZSE Raw presets coupled with the education has really enabled me to jump right in and apply zone system thinking at the raw level. I now find myself re-visiting older edits to see what I would have done differently at the raw stage of processing.

    This was well worth it!

    Blake has done it again!! The Zone System Express – RAW (ZSE_RAW) course dramatically altered my workflow. Blake not only explains and demonstrates ACR Masks and Presets but offers Presets as well. I now think of ACR Masks in much the same way as Masks in Photoshop. My workflow in ACR now creates a much more natural, ready to edit image in Photoshop. I find myself creating fewer Layers and Mask in Photoshop than before resulting in smaller files. (I cannot wait to start creating my own Presets.) But do not think that ACR Masks are the same as Photoshop Masks, Blake explains and demonstrates these differences in his video ‘RAW Masks vs Photoshop Masks’. For serious image processing The Zone System Express – RAW (ZSE_RAW) course is a must!

I have to admit that sometimes I have to go back and review, because there’s so much to process. When you put it in use is where you notice progress; the nice thing about all this process is that you can go back and review as many times as necessary. I always say to my self that it’s not how fast you get to the goal, but if you’re enjoying the journey. That’s the way I look at it.

    This programme works well at the moment and promises to automatically improve as time goes by. See Blake`s recent video comparing masking in Photoshop with masking in ACR. At present masking is better in Photoshop, but as it has only just been introduced in ACR, it is likely that Adobe will refine and improve the masking in ACR. Don`t let that put you off purchasing the new Express RAW as it works very well in practice in targeting specific areas for masking both tones and colour

    The new mask system for local adjustments in Lightroom opens possibilities that was only reserved for Photoshop people before. First though was: Hey I’m fully familiar with all that Lightroom stuff and NO, by any chance, I don’t need any preset anymore at all. Nonetheless I could not resist to buy it for the fair discounted initial price (your charme, Blake). But I have to say now: This is a really big helper to save a lot of time and I rarely use Photoshop anymore. Highly recommended as complimentary addition to the ZoneSystemExpress panel for Photoshop !

    Blake.

    I had been enjoying the recent Masking upgrades in Lightroom as soon as they came out. I hesitated a bit on purchasing the package but realized that it was a very reasonable investment, especially considering all the helpful information you have provided with your videos. I am really glad that I did. With the ZSE Raw you have provided me with so many more options and tools to work with. It is definitely part of my workflow already. I have been processing a few hundred images from a recent trip to the west coast of B.C. ( before the devastating floods), and with many of them I feel like I am now (re)creating an experience. Thanks for your help.

    Mostly using Zones rather than Regions without contrast+ adjustment. I find the contrast adjustment quite agressive and the highlights and shadow ajustements to extreme. I have created my own presets with highlights and shadows at -50 and +50 respectively and less contrast.

    The ZSE Raw system does make editing easier – and forces me to consider tones, colours earlier in the workflow and on a consistent basis before further editing. In short, another good addition to the products with related education Blake provides.

    The Zone System Express Raw has been incredibly helpful – I got it at the discounted price so also very cheap!~ The videos are good but I’m still struggling with the difference between Intersect & Subtract in the masks … and when to use which. Will become clear I’m sure as I practise.

    Purchased your ZSE RAW course and practiced the tools while watching the videos. Your presets and videos have helped tremendously in understanding what’s “under the hood” and how to apply. Great product and tutorials!

    Still adjusting my workflow but like the enhance flexibility in LIghtroom. Still learning. Biggest issue removing junk. I like to remove/heal stuff before major adjustments to tone and color. For removal I prefer photoshop.

    I see this product big for my iPhone dng. New iPhone 12 Pro max is now my ‘back pocket camera’ I always have with me.

    ZSE RAW makes the intricacies of the new ACR features much easier to navigate. It gives me the ability to achieve the ACR subtleties quicker than if I took hours studying to learn what ZSE Raw guides me to.

    Excellently crafted and presented set of Raw Zone presets, having been a film zone system user in 5×4 & medium format. I have also found the zones ones great at enhancing the shadow and highlight shoulders in scanned transparencies, along with taming any Kodachrome purple skies.
    Thanks Blake, wishing you well in keeping up with your terrific work (and enthusiasm). Hopefully, like I, you will be able to continue enjoying doing the things you really love in ‘official’ retirement.
    cheers

    Once again, Blake’s virtual tutelage has raisef my understanding of PhotoShop and specifically, the Adobe Camera Raw tool. A powerful and complicated tool, simplified and a whole range of creative options presented.

    The practice of F64’s Zone System Masking is the master key to unlocking ACR processing.
    Blake if I have told you this before, then at my advance age please allow me to repeat myself. There is no one better than you on this subject.
    Thanks.

    ZSE RAW is a good compliment to the ZSE package for Photoshop. I liked it so much that I gave it to a friend as a Christmas present.

    My trainers eschewed presets, but your theory and practice provides a comprehensive dynamic system with intuitive profiles and presets that allow one complete control to develop the canvasses. I rely on your readily available developments, but as my abilities and styles grow I may be able to make my own applications. Tx

    Very good interesting tuition – now bought ZSE7 panel and course that will carry things a bit further. Will review once I have completed it.

    One of the best courses I’ve seen in a while. With all the recent changes to the masking capabilities in Lightroom and ACR, you might not realize the new capabilities there and how they can change both your workflow and your planning on how you want to process a photo. Great course – Thanks!

    These presets promote a systematic workflow to address post processing whether you want to just finish the edit in Lightroom or then proceed further onto Photoshop. These are not just another set of random presets. This is a great starting point for Zone System editing.

    Once again, Blake has hit a home run with ZSE Raw! I’ve used it now for about a month and I’m getting get results in ACR without going into PS. In my workflow, I used to go to PS to finish off my tone and color corrections. Now I’m pretty much done in ACR and use Pallet Effects 4 (another Great Tool for Blake) in PS to work on Effects. Your Photos will come alive in ACR using ZSE Raw!

    After a rather cursory look at the material in a foreign language for me and compared to the products purchased so far, they are at a high level. I recommend it to anyone who cares about their development as a photographer and wants to spend as little time as possible on photo processing and get the best results.

    I love what Blake creates for his customers. If you aren’t one yet then I highly recommend that you remedy your situation. This purchase brings me up to date with all of the F64 education.

    Awesome product! My workflow starts in Lightroom and not every photo requires the surgical processing of the Zone System panel in Photoshop. The Zone System RAW allows me to do the same Zone System workflow in Lightroom (or Camera Raw) easily and quickly! Great job Blake – thank you for creating Zone System RAW!

    I am having fun learning to use it. As always your tutorials are clear and hence very useful.
