Join Ben Willmore and me as we reveal how to edit with curves. Step-by-step instructions include basics of masks, layers and the curves tool itself…

Categories: ,

When you learn how to use masks, layers and curves non-destructively to edit effectively, it changed everything. So, I brought in Ben Willmore, author of over a dozen Photoshop books, who has taught hundreds of thousands of people how to use Photoshop in addition to being in the Photoshop Hall of Fame.

Ben watched how I edit in curves and designed this program to teach you everything you need to understand about the tools in order to master my editing techniques. Join Ben and me as we take you through masks, layers and the curves tool. I will edit an image in BOTH of my styles, dark and rich and light and airy. Ben will then take apart ALL of my steps and walk you through them. He will also offer many tips on how to speed up your workflow.

This class will become your go to class for understanding how masks, layers and curves work. And, do not think this is ONLY for beginners. I learned a few new tricks today as well.

And, for the final piece of the excitement, Ben and I created and designed a RAY OF LIGHT brush that is BRAND NEW and optimized for the most beautiful light effect you will ever want to create which is included in your purchase.

Ben is flat-out the best Photoshop instructor I’ve ever worked with. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Read the reviews on this page!

    Absolutely love this video. The way Ben explains everything,it makes it very easy to understand. This is a video for everyone. For those who are new to photoshop, start with this video, it is a game changer, and for those who are not new to Photoshop it will show a different way to do things with curves. Amazing!!

    I’ve been in business for 11 years, and this has completely changed my post processing workflow. Used in conjunction with Meg’s editing videos, you will be surprised how much cleaner and more dramatic your editing will improve. I highly recommend Zero to Curves … along with all the other Zero to ____ courses. I have them all except for 2. So much knowledge to be gained! Thanks for all the excellent products, MBL!

    If you are on the fence about this one, GET IT! It is perfect. It helped me understand the fundamentals of light and color, explained so brilliantly by this course, and until then, I didn’t realize how much I was missing out. Its like purchasing windows for your house before the foundation is built. Get the foundation! Well worth the $$, I’m a moderate user of Photoshop, and learned a lot, yet it was so easy to follow, it starts from the beginning for those that have never used Photoshop before. Fantastic investment!

    Fantastic course!! Ben and Meg make curves easy understand and also demonstrate what a powerful and versatile tool curves is. If you only learn one thing in Photoshop, it NEEDS to be curves! Your editing will absolutely go to the next level!

    This was my first coarse I bought and it changed my editing life! I pretty much did no editing in photoshop and now I couldn’t edit without photoshop! So worth the money!

    This opens up a new world of processing images for me. I thought I used curves well prior to this tutorial but was sadly mistaken! After watching the first video I edited one of my images along with the lesson and created a new level in the look and feel of my images. Love what is being taught here:)

    I really loved this workshop as it teaches you how to use curves to create the looks you want. I have previously used brushes and actions to get the same effect but sometimes they don’t cut it or they are more destructive than using the methods taught in this workshop. I learned so much and recommend it, especially if you are just starting out and don’t know where to head with your edit. It’s all good to say have the idea of the edit in your head then start but I never could come up with the idea in the first place until I started watching Meg’s editing series. Thanks so much for passing on your valuable trade secrets to us so we can flourish!

    This zero workshop is by far my favorite one. I own a few of Megs edits and curves was always the one thing I struggled with when trying out her techniques. I couldn’t figure out how to invert or how to use the black/white brush. I found that this edit truly helped me understand curves and I am excited to apply it to my editing here on out.

    Meg! This is an EXCELLENT resource for those learning to edit like you! It was brilliant to include Ben Willmore so that he could explain the technical parts, while you worked your magic on the image. I will refer to this video many times, I’m sure! And it’s so worth the $!!! Thank you!

    I’ve watched this at least 10 times since I purchased it. Even though I’ve been using PS for over 15 years, I’ve never used curves. This really is a game changer for me. The way this is designed, even a newbie can pick right up and have no problem learning Meg’s techniques. Well worth the purchase price!

    I’ve never ever used photoshop before. This was incredible. Not only did I learn a great editing skill, but having Ben teach “how” to use photoshop as well was incredibly useful. I can’t wait to buy all of Meg’s videos!

    Hi Meg. I downloaded the Ray of Light brush but it doesn’t seem to be working. It’s just a circle and I received an error message 3 times when trying to install it, stating something about “broken pipe”.

    Got sooo much out of this class! First one I bought and was the best starter course to learn Meg’s techniques. I’ve been using photoshop for years with actions and this is a game changer!

    I love Meg’s work. Her vision is amazing. I was really excited to buy this, but debated because I have an ok grasp on Photoshop. I usually google and look thing to teach myself. I felt in a rut though and wanted my photography to improve. Most of what was taught in zero to curves, I knew. I did learn a few trick. So I did walk away learning something. I’m glad I bought it on sale. It’s a pretty good class if you don’t know much about Photoshop.

    Over the years I have learned a lot of different ways to edit in photoshop but Curves was always the one tool I simply could not grasp. This comprehensive class gave me an understanding of what Curves are, how they work, and how to use them to get much more refined results than using premade photoshop actions.
