A New Article For Digital Photo Pro Magazine…

Which is better: a video tutorial, or a magazine article? If I’ve learned anything selling online video tutorials, it’s that there seem to be two distinct types of learners out there. Those who learn best by reading. And those who would rather watch video. How do I know this? Because it never ceases to amaze me how the group that purchases video tutorials, never, ever, read the instructions! :-)

But that’s another story. Anyway, a few months ago I cooked up a new video tutorial on the new 2012 Process Version Highlights & Shadows controls. The video is a bit dense, and I was never really sure if it clearly communicated what I wanted it to. If you haven’t seen it, you can find the original posting and links to the free video, here.

In any case, I had another shot at it this month, only this time in written form. Trying to adequately describe a subject this complex in 1500 words is a totally different kind of challenge, but one that I gladly took on. Writing articles for Digital Photo Pro Magazine is one of my favorite things to do. You can find a list of all the articles I’ve written for them at the bottom of my “free stuff” page, here.

If you’d like to go directly to the new online version of the article, click here.

As always, comments are welcome. I’m especially interested in your thoughts comparing the two if you’ve both watched the video, and read the article.

Both versions work well for me – the written one is clear and has the advantage of one being able to return to particular points more easily than in a video. However, the video has the advantage of your great speaking style which is always encouraging, reassuring & enthusing.
