Triple Processed RAW

In this lesson, you’ll learn how processing a raw file multiple times and masking the results into a single composite image can allow you to save otherwise unusable images. In the process, you’ll learn how to transfer multiple raw settings from ACR or Lightroom to Photoshop and how Smart Objects make the process easy.

The raw image is included as a downloadable file so you can practice the technique. Please post your results and discuss your process and success or frustration in the Masters Forum Facebook group.

Note: The downloadable practice file for this lesson has been compressed into a .zip archive. Double-click on the file to extract its contents before attempting to use the file in Photoshop or Lightroom.


    1. That white thing is an Apple Magic Trackpad, which is a Bluetooth “mouse” and I use to control a second computer. That computer is connected to a large TV that is right behind the camera and contained my notes/outline for what I’m teaching. I just use it to scroll as I progress through a lesson to make sure I don’t forget to cover something. If you ever see me glance up and to my left, then I’m most likely looking at my notes since it’s on that side of the camera.

  1. As usual, very good as your norm.
    Last time I ask about the hub, and thanks for the answer. I notice that there is a bigger white rectangular thing on hour right hand side, what is that ? Just curious ….

    1. Hi Peter. I’m not sure what you mean by “bigger white rectangular thing on hour right hand side” are you referring to something in the Photoshop interface, something in the image, or something on the web page that hosts the video?

  2. Very informative. Thank you. I wanted to mention that your video library is messed up after the last additions. The videos don’t sort properly by date. This video appears about 1/2 way down on the list.

    1. I added a total of 10 videos on Monday, this one being the first… so it should show up 10th in the list when viewed by date. Please email if it is acting differently on your end and then we’ll look into it.
