    Messing around with Photolemur 3, Luminar 3, DXO 9

    Early this AM I received an email inviting me to enter a contest and receive a free copy of Photolemur 3. So I did. It appears to be a fully automated program for improving photographs. I then played with the same photographs using DXO 9 (using one of the HDR presets) and Luminar 3 (using a...

    Mucking about with HDR software.

    It's not a secret that I'm a keen software collector and tryer-outer. When I was putting the 2020 version of On1 Photo RAW to the test I was disappointed with how it merged a 3 photo exposure bracket from the X100T (+1. 0, -1). So also owning Aurora 2019, Photomatix Pro 6.1.1 and Franzis HDR...

    Creative Cloud app update.

    For the users of Adobe products via the Creative Cloud, there is an update around. I had lost the Mac taskbar icon for CC so contacted Adobe help via an electronic link to get the Icon reinstalled, Mr Singh facilitated a reload of the CC app and believe me it is a radically different look so if...

    Loaded up Catalina yesterday only to find that any new changes made within Photos can not be saved. Anyone else having the same problem? The problem is noted on the Luminar website.

    Google Photos AI

    I randomly took two photos of a deck we were cleaning. One was for the front part and the next was the back half. I didn't make any effort to align them or anything. A while later, I received a notification that my new 'stitched panorama' was ready for viewing. Huh? Well, when I looked at...

    Adios Adobe

    Just cancelled my CC plan, moved over full time to Capture One Pro for Fujifilm and Gimp a few months ago and haven't looked back.

    Apple Mac Users only: Acorn

    I've been using Acorn off and on for about 4 years. Its in constant development and is available to buy from the App store, or from the app website. It became my go-to once I had given up on Photoshop (I preferred it to Pixelmator which I also own), because there are many similar features...

    ACDSee Anyone?

    Just wondering if anybody uses this. I was very tempted by an offer last week of two licences for the price of one which was cheap, anyway. Comments?

    Correcting horizons: is less rotation always better?

    Hi to all signal processing experts. Sometimes my pic is off by 2.5 degrees; sometimes by -0.14. Intuitively one could imagine that the image degrades less if you have to perform less rotation. Then again, rotation by a multiple of 90 is effectively lossless. I currently assume that the image...

    Luminar 3.1.1

    Some time ago, I bought Luminar and am pleased with it. A couple of days ago, I downloaded the latest version -- Luminar 3.1.1 -- and it definitely boots faster ... noticeably faster, even with my ancient Dell workstation that is running Win10 with only 4 gigs memory. I'm impressed. Cheers, Jock

    File sizes from different editors

    I noticed something while comparing final images from LR Classic, C1, and Luminar 3. The file sizes were different from each editor. The LR file being the smallest around 12mb. C1 around 22mb. And Luminar 3 at 30mb. All were edited as closely as possible, using the same color profile at output.

    Software Ever wonder what goes into creating a film "filter" presets in software? Interesting article at Wired

    An interesting article over at Wired about how the team at VSCO go about creating their film filters for their apps. https://www.wired.com/story/vsco-film-photo-filters/ It's a short article but something that I had not really thought about before and, after reading that, I'm not sure if I...

    Apple Apple announces Aperture sunset date, suggests migration to Adobe Lightroom Classic or Apple Photos

    If you're still using Apple's Aperture on your MacOS machines, even though Apple discontinued updating it back in 2014, you'll be facing an upgrade decision. MacOS Mojave will be the last version of the OS that will support running Aperture "for technical reasons". Apple's suggestion is to...

    Slick post processing with two programs

    Shot this today at Peebles Island: crow waaaaaay up in a tree and heavily backlit. So I ran it through DXO 11's backlighting correction: then sky enhancement from Luminar 3: I think I like the result. Cheers, Jock

    Post-Processing on Chromebook - Mostly Snapseed

    Disclaimer; I've been on a JPG only workflow since moving to Fuji XF several years ago. I do take RAW back-ups for critical shots, but oftentimes they're just insurance, I've yet to really use them. I can upload my photos using a USB-C reader and they can be copied to the local file system and...

    Software help for editing newbie!

    OK.... I've been taking photos for over 20 years and when digital came, I slowly embraced it and realized its potential. The thing is, I have never gotten into shooting in RAW or editing of any kind (I just stuck with JPEG and got some good results so never got round to the more complex...

    Affinity Photo

    Is anyone using Affinity Photo? At the moment it's only available for Mac but there is supposedly a Windows Beta arriving later this year. I'm curious if anyone is using it and, if so, what they think of it.

    Sony Software for camera connection

    Good day. After a post about focusing, I came in front a problem of "precise" focusing. Idea is, if possible, to view on comp. the same image, in real time, as on cam. This way the focusing should be easier, convenient. Is it possible, does something like this exist? Going on with...
