In this video tutorial, I show you how to easily color grade your GoPro footage both manually and with using GoPro Luts. When filming with a GoPro it does a really good job capturing stunning photos and video. The contrast and vibrancy of the content is good and ready to share. There are sometimes however you want to take your footage to the next level and do your own color grading.

If you decide to do your own color grading it is important to shoot in a flat color profile. GoPro offers two color profiles “GoPro Color” and “GoPro Flat. The flat profile basically has low contrast and low saturation thus allowing you to set your own levels in the grading room. You enable the flat color profile by enabling ProTune and selecting flat as the color option.

With today’s powerful software and tools such as LumaFusion and the iPad Pro series, it is now possible to do professional level editing on your mobile devices, this includes the use of Luts.  Watch our video tutorial showing you just how easy it is to color grade your GoPro footage in LumaFusion on your iPad Pro. I go step by step to get you up and editing in no time.

Air Magic – Automatic Drone Photo Editing App From Skylum

Published

on

Earlier in the week Skylum, the makers of Aurora HDR and Luminar launched a new software app called AirMagic. This new software is engineered specifically for editing photos taken on drones and it does it automatically. Let’s face it not all of us are editing guru’s, purchasing, learning, and mastering editing software like Photoshop or Lightroom can be time-consuming and expensive. There is a huge learning curve to get good results out of high-end photo editing apps. Not to mention some folks just don’t have time to spend hours upon hours editing shots they have captured with their drone.

This is were software like AirMagic comes in, this intelligent software can analyze your drone photo and make it look incredible with just a few clicks, the best part is there is no learning curve, AirMagic does everything for you. I was able to get my hands on a pre-release version and have been playing around with it for several weeks and I must say I am very impressed. This software can detect what drone the photo was captured with to make any adjustments needed for every specific drone. If you want to change the look of the finished photo they have also included some different styles that can be applied. If you have many files you want to edit, no problem, AirMagic can open up multiple files at a time for quick and easy batch editing.

One thing however that I wish they did include is a way to manually change the look, the software is geared for automatic editing, but it would be nice to be able to adjust some aspects of the editing for those who like to tinker. They do however include a strength slider, so if you find you want to tone things down a bit you are able.

All in all, this is a fantastic drone photo editing app for beginners and for those who don’t have a lot of time. If you just want to shoot photos with your drone and then be able to share them on social media without a lot of fussing around, AirMagic is definitely for you. I highly reconded the AirMagic app to all drone photographers, both beginners and seasoned.

Watch my demonstration of AirMagic working its magic on my demo video below.
