Watch me edit both “A Trip to the Forest (raw only)” and “The Magic Mushroom (in full)”. This video is exactly what it says; an easy to follow, silent editing tutorial that shows my entire workflow. There is no sound. You will only be able to watch me edit. Even with basic knowledge of Photoshop, you will easily pick up on what I do.

*New in this video are the added annotations to help clarify some of the thoughts behind what you see.
