I loved this tutorial , real interesting, it was sparking idea’s the whole way through.
Hi Aaron! Thanks for the tutorials! I hope we can get back to the advanced tutorials like colour grading and colour corrections. New AI tools.
Great Tutorial. Learned a few new tricks, refreshed some others. Always fun to hear Aaron explain things
Loved this tutorial! Lots of techniques that are useable in many different images. The pace was good and the images and examples great.
Dude….. Amazing stuff as usual. 10 stars
I didn’t expect this subject was going to have a lot of new information for me but I was wrong – again. I’m glad I found your tutorials, they’ve turned out to be a total game changer. Thank you!
This tutorial really caught my eye as soon as I saw the announcement email as I have to create a lot of images incorporating text and graphics for my work. It can be a real struggle to get the text/images to play nicely together sometimes, especially if the background is busy or parts of the subject are where I wanna place my text. I’ve always loved the effect of cutting out the subject and overlaying it on top of the banner/graphics etc but I’d never tried it before as I thought it would be too difficult. The lessons in this tutorial show some really effective solutions to make your text stand out on busy backgrounds while still making your subject the centre of attention. I loved how each lesson used variations of the same basic technique to provide the repetition required to lock it into memory so I can actually remember how to do it later on. I also loved the way that Aaron critiqued his own work as he went along, and he wasn’t afraid to say when he didn’t like the look of something. He then proceeded to tell us why and demonstrated various ways to correct it. I’ve come away from this tutorial armed with some really cool techniques that are going to up my game when it comes to working with text and graphics on images. I (almost) can’t wait to start work on Monday so I can start putting it into practice 😀
