  1. I’m a bit lost here.

    @0:33: Contrary to the intended purpose (“decrease the intensity of some of the greens”), most of the greens look more intense to my eyes after the modification. Also, there’s any number of techniques that would be far more suitable for this goal.

    @2:05: It may be my old eyes, but I saw no discernible difference between the on/off setting for removing CA. I’d expect the example used in an instructional video to be representative for what’s being demonstrated. And then the effect of this option is further *reduced* by moving the sliders in?

    @2:50: The image was allegedly shot with a 600mm equivalent lens, so presumably the Panasonic 100-300 was used. This lens exhibits virtually no distortion at the 300mm end, so why the heavy handed correction in that area?

    But what really struck me is that about 75% of what is being discussed in this video has nothing whatsoever to do with enhancing hair.
