I have reworked my video tutorial on dodging and burning via an overlay layer and the brush tool.

It is nearly seven minutes long with a 720x576 window and high quality audio.

It is a Windows media movie (a .WMV file). I have tried many different audio and video codecs with Quicktime and Flash. Similar quality for Flash is twice the size, nearly 20MB. Quicktime is nearly 30MB.

This video is a template for forthcoming videos, so I am very interested in feedback. It includes zooms, cursor highlight, visual and sound effects for mouse clicks, and sound effects for keypresses.

The file will stream if you use Microsoft Media Player, but if you use a slower connection, you'll need to be patient. The file is 9.8MB.

If you need Microsoft Media Player, there's a link on my site. There are versions for different flavors of Windows and Mac OS.

Enjoy!

I look forward to comments from people who view the video.

Cheers,

Mitch

Glad it helped.

I added a Quicktime .MOV version of the dodge & burn video.

Now Mac and Linux users can take a look, too.

I quickly added your home site to my favorites. I use PSE3 and it worked very well with it. Please keep up the great videos, so that us old folks can learn new techniques. Thanks, Shelton
