Lesson Info

What is Virtual Staging? What Tools Should I Use?

In this lesson, I'm going to talk about virtual staging which is making an empty room look like a home by adding furniture. You've probably seen this before. Perusing through Zillow listings, something feels a little bit off and you realize, oh, wait, that furniture isn't real. That picture on the wall isn't real. That TV. Screen. It has the same show exactly on every channel at the same moment in every room, it helps sell a home because it shows people what it could possibly look like and it makes it more of a home than just an empty house. The tools aren't perfect though and I'm going to talk about a couple options for you to use online, but there's actually been a super exciting development while I was recording this class with Adobe Photoshop where you can actually use generative A I to have within Photoshop, create artwork for the wall furniture right within the app and it's included with Photoshop. I'll be covering how to do that. In the next lesson. There are tools like homes st...

yler dot com, which is an online app where you can actually upload your photos. It include, they have a bunch of furniture and stuff. This is probably the simplest method. It does cost money to use these tools, but the results are ok and it's easy to use. Then there are the done for you. Options like box brownie dot com. There's other services out there too, but you're going to be paying anywhere between 1030 $50 per photo. And unless that's something your agents paying for, then that's likely not something you're going to do yourself. There's even more complicated software like Autodesk 3d Max, which is Diy, it's a completely separate application. If you're interested in, you can check that out. But I don't teach that myself. I am going to teach you how to do this in Photoshop using the new Generative A I method and you get pretty close to the results you'll find in homes styler and box brownie. It takes a little bit of time and practice, but let's head over to Photoshop and see how to do it.

The course is a comprehensive learning experience and Philip's passion and expertise in photography and teaching are evident throughout the course. Key highlights for me included mastering lighting techniques, photo blending for high-quality interiors, and advanced strategies like the 'Flambient' process. This was straight forward, and easy to understand. I live in Australia an grateful that you kept the information relevant to any country.

Hey Philip, Just want to thank you for putting in the time and effort putting this course together. I’ve been shooting for 20 years but never really spent enough time on PS. This course really focuses on what you really need to know. Everything is really straight to the point. Philip provides images so you can follow along and really get a good work flow going. I personally enjoyed the

Overall, the completeness and depth of this course are excellent. The only thing that needs improvement is during the editing portion. Philip's voice was fading in and out even when the volume on my computer was set at 100%. His voice was excellent during the photo shoot portion of the course.
