Register to participate in the 5-day photo editing challenge – it’s 100% free. This is for ALL skill levels including total beginners, and more seasoned photographers.
This challenge is all about playing around and experimenting with photo editing, even if you’ve never tried it before! I’ll show you how easy and FUN it is.
Here’s what one participant in the photo editing challenge had to say:
I can’t thank you enough for explaining Luminar AI. I have had the software for a few months and struggled with understanding functions of it. I’ve viewed hundreds of hours of tutorials and still came up missing bits of how to do things and why. Your five lessons have been wonderful to watch and now I get it. Great job and you are an excellent presenter. Thanks very, very much.Bob Mesloh
Each day will cover a different topic as follows:
- Quick edits
- Contrast adjustments
- Creative enhancements
- Portrait AI tools and editing
- Fixing and making corrective edits to your images
Get Darlene’s RAW files
When you register for the challenge you will get a daily email with a link to download the RAW files used in each daily tutorial and a link to go watch the video.
Get Luminar AI trial software to use for 7-days
You’ll also get a link to a free 7-day trial of the photo editing software to use. This has been provided by Skylum JUST for challenge participants! There is currently not a trial version available on their website – so sign up and give it a go!
This is a GROUP challenge and you will all be processing the same image.
Then all you have to do is download the file each day, edit it to your taste, and then share it with us in the comment section of the challenge page for that day. It will be fun to see all the different styles and variations of the same photo.
The idea is for this to be inspirational and fun!
Last time I ran a similar challenge over 2100 people participated. Based on survey results of those who completed it, this is what they said:
- 97% of participants surveyed ranked the challenge 4 or higher out of 5.
- 81% said their skills improved over the course of the challenge.
- Participants’ confidence levels went from 53% to 77%.
- 89% found it easy to follow along with the videos.
- 95% found having my raw files valuable.
So there is huge value in doing this challenge and following along with me – regardless of your current skill level with photo editing. Whether you’re a total newbie or a seasoned pro, there’s something in it for you.
Since participating and watching Darlene’s videos etc I have started shooting in Raw and using the techniques that were demonstrated to edit my photos. It has been so freeing and I can’t wait to do more. I was a novice at editing so this opened up a whole new world for me. I’m working with raw files now and I feel I have enough information to use Luminar successfully. I understand now why raw files give me so much more control of my photos.Susan Hurd, 7-day challenge 2019
