    @kayla-weaver, and @austinvinar, you’ll be glad to know that it’s finally here!

    I’ve promised a video tutorial for RAWTherapee for a long time, and it’s finally gone from the “To-Do” list, to the “Done” list! I apologize for making you wait so long. 🙁

    (You’ll want to watch it in HD so that you can see everything clearly.)

    If you have any feedback, please let me know! As a biased judge, I’m sure there are things that are obvious to others that aren’t so obvious to me!

    Download RAWTherapee here: http://rawtherapee.com/downloads

    There’s a wealth of information about RAWTherapee on RawPedia here: http://50.87.144.65/~rt/w/index.php?title=Main_Page

    Things to remember next time:

    • Use a better microphone. (Fix the microphone hiss)
    • Don’t jiggle the mouse around so much.
    • Don’t say “Ummm” so many times! 🙂

    Thanks a lot Ezra! My editing improved just watching that. You know, I never noticed any of the things you said to remember for next time. Well, except maybe the hiss, but it wasn’t bad at all. You explained it very thoroughly and made everything so simple. Thanks a lot for taking the time to put this together. It saved me hours of expermenting and messing up.

    You are very welcome @austinvinar! I know exactly how you feel when trying to learn new software. I remember when I first downloaded the free trial for Adobe Lightroom. I was so lost, it wasn’t even funny! I found a few video tutorials online, and that helped me so much! I felt much more confident in my editing abilities after watching someone edit a photo and explain how and why they did what they did. So now I’m trying to return the favor! 🙂 I know that there are good tutorials online for lots of different software, but whether they’re decent or not is the question. I have looked and looked for a RAWTherapee video tutorial, and I never found one that was really good to recommend to other Christian photographers.

    I think that is one area where Lenspiration can grow, is in good, decent, high quality training videos. @jamesstaddon is already doing some of that with the PRO Webinars and Critiques, but I think we need some technical videos too, like software tutorials. 🙂

    Very good tutorial! Not only for RAWTherapee specifically, but for a general approach to editing no matter what software a person might be using. I noticed the microphone hiss or “hum” or whatever it might actually be! Although it was not terribly distracting. I did NOT think about the mouse jiggle or that you said “Ummm” too many times! I did, however, think that you sound a lot like your Uncle Hoshea 🙂

    This just makes me so happy! Thank you @buddingphotographer.

    This is what is both so discouraging and so motivational to me; to offer descent alternatives is what keeps me going day in and day out. I’m all for it, @buddingphotographer! Which technical video should be next?!

    @buddingphotographer! Which technical video should be next?!

    I’m thinking either a Lightroom tutorial, or a GIMP tutorial. Plus, there is more that could be covered in RAWTherapee too.

    Maybe with practice my tutorials will improve to the point that I can actually make one worthy of occupying a spot in the Video Library! 🙂

    I’ll take a GIMP one. =) I know how to do the basic edits, but don’t know the real in depth stuff. By the way, my clone and heal tools in GIMP stopped working. Any suggestions?
