Big thanks to everyone who supported us in our launch of our very first photography video – PL Level 1 Photography Basics. Since the launch, we have enhanced the video quite a bit by cleaning up the sound, adding more visuals and text to guide our readers better. In addition, we have just added a brand new Chapter 11, with detailed menu guides for four different camera types: Nikon Entry-Level DSLR, Nikon Pro-Level DSLR, Canon Entry-Level DSLR and Canon Pro-Level DSLR. That’s another 3.5 hours of video that we have added to the already extensive 5 hour course! And that’s the beauty of this course – we will continue to enhance it in the future and if we feel that something needs to be added or changed, we will do so, making our courses some of the most thorough, up to date and complete photography courses out there.
We have also completely reworked the video compression to reduce each file size without impacting the quality. As a result, we were able to compress the content by as much as 50%! If you do not feel like downloading all the videos one by one, we now have an option to download all the videos via a single ZIP file, as requested by some of our readers. This ZIP file is pretty big in size, but it will contain everything, so you can start the download and walk away from your computer. Once the file is downloaded, you will be able to extract all the videos from it.
If you have previously purchased the course, you will be able to re-download all the files by visiting the My Account page on the top menu of the site.
In addition, if you prefer to receive the course on a USB thumb drive, we have a few of those in stock, ready to ship today. Once you go to the product page, select “USB Stick” from the “Media” drop-down on the top of the page and you will be able to add it to the cart. And those who have already placed the order for the USB sticks, we apologize for the delay, but we wanted to put the latest and greatest material on those drives before we shipped, so those are going out this week!
