Photodex "How To" & Tutorials

Postby Aida » Tue Jun 26, 2012 1:34 pm

******** Updated in October 2013 ******

:arrow: A list [somewhat incomplete] of
TUTORIALS CREATED BY PHOTODEX over the last couple of years


:arrow: RECENTLY FROM PHOTODEX:
Intro to Masking in ProShow Producer
http://www.slideshowblog.com/2013/10/an ... -producer/
:arrow: Stay tuned for two more masking videos coming in the next few weeks that get a little more advanced and creative!

A JUNE 2013 UPDATE
Photodex training videos & demos on Youtube has currently 56 videos [3 hours, 42 minutes]. Here's the link:
ProShow Gold & Producer Training by Photodex
http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9C983417BCA6C8DF

Photodex, as you all probably know, has a blog [ http://www.slideshowblog.com/ ] - which is really worth visiting from time to time. I think the Photodex Blog could be quite useful to new users & intermediate level users of Producer.

:arrow: I've compiled a list of the Photodex tuts published between January & December 2012 [with direct links to each of them], thinking that some of you might find this list useful as a reference guide, specially if you’re a new user of the Producer software:

Thanks, Trulytango, for adding this item - Creating a Video Colorization Effect - to my list of Photodex tuts. It had somehow escaped my attention . . .

I've now added to my list the how-to's & tuts that Photodex has created since my original post this summer. These updates are at the bottom of my original post.

So then, this compilation of every tut & how-to by Photodex in 2012 is now all in one place! :) I hope newbies will find this reference list useful.
Happy Proshowing everyone!

Aida, you've done a wonderful job, one that deserves to be turned into a "sticky" so it never sinks down to where people can't find it. Perhaps a quick note to Mike can accomplish this. 8)

:arrow: A PHOTODEX TUTORIAL ON MASKING
An update on my list of tutorials by Photodex


Masking can be initially quite mystifying to new users of ProShow Producer. It certainly was for me. Photodex has just posted the first of three tutorials on masking. This intro to masking can be viewed here:

http://www.slideshowblog.com/2013/10/an ... -producer/
:arrow: From PHOTODEX:
Intro to Masking in ProShow Producer
This video gives you a great overview of using masks in Producer and we go through a simple masking example together.
:arrow: Stay tuned for two more masking videos coming in the next few weeks that get a little more advanced and creative!

Happy "Proshowing" :D

Aida, only if it suits you and you have the time to devote to such things: How about creating a blog where you could keep everything in categories, easily adding links to specific areas whenever they show up? It would supply a much better hub for such things than Photodex currently has.

Just a thought. A blog takes a bit of time to set up, but at least it's free. Free stuff is nice.

Note that on YouTube you can go to the ProShow Gold & Producer Training playlist for all 74 of their training videos.
They are sorted by date, but you are able to do a search.
Here’s the link.
