Store News & Updates for 2019

Greetings and welcome to the first update for 2019 of what’s going on on my store! I have a few new and updated products in the works that I wanted to tell you about, and also to give you an opportunity to give me feedback should you wish to.

eBook Updates

I will be updating some of my eBooks over the next little while. I have also taken my Capture One guide out of circulation for the moment, as I am writing a new version. So here’s what’s currently planned:

Capture One Fuji Guide

The original version of this was quite old and with the release of version 12 of Capture One, it was getting too out of date to update. With that in mind, I am working on a completely new guide, specifically for version 12. It will be a complete re-write. It may take a little while, but I hope to have it out in the first half of 2019.

Fuji Lightroom Guide

I will be putting out a minor update to this in the near future. The changes will be relatively minor, and will focus on updating terminology for newer versions of Lightroom. It will also add mentions of newer Fuji cameras such as the X-T3. While the advice and settings for the X-T3 are pretty much the same as older versions, this is causing confusion to some readers, so I will be adding specifics to address that confusion.

This will be a free update, but it will be the final update to this version of the guide. Any future version will be a “second edition” and will be a new book effectively. This is free update is currently scheduled for sometime in February 2019 but this is only an estimated date. It may be delayed.

X-Transformer Guide

There hasn’t been any significant change to the software that warrants re-writing or updating the guide at the moment. I will be examining it to see if there is anything that needs to change in the future, but for now, this will remain at the current version.

Lightroom Presets

I will be tidying up the numerous presets available on my store. I am considering bundling all of the older presets into a single bundle, and the older individual packs will be discontinued. This will apply to the oldest presets that were originally designed for version 4 through 6. I understand that some people are still using this version of the software, but it is not possible to continue to provide support for this, as there is no way to create older presets from the newer versions of Lightroom.

As I am only a small independent photographer, I don’t have the resources to maintain multiple versions of Lightroom. If you had previously downloaded some of these stand alone packs, they will still be available from your account, but they will no longer be available for sale outside of the bundle. I don’t have a set date for this yet, but it will be sometime in the first half of next year.

Capture One Training on YouTube

I have been doing a number of screencasts and tutorials for Capture One on YouTube lately, and these cover the express version as well as preliminary videos on Capture One 12. I am updating these regularly, so check them out if you’re looking for more Capture One information.
