Corel AfterShot Pro 2 Review

Corel AfterShot Pro 2 Review

AfterShot Pro is an image editor aimed squarely at photographers. It can’t tackle graphic design tasks or create photo montages. Instead, it focuses on organising photos with tags, ratings and labels, and optimising their colours and details. This is particularly useful for people who shoot using their camera’s RAW mode. RAW files have the potential to deliver much better image quality than the camera’s JPEGs. It’s down to software like AfterShot Pro to unlock this potential – as well as to keep track of these RAW files, which can’t be read by most Windows software. AfterShot Pro isn’t the only ...

Five of the Best Android Apps for Photography

Five of the Best Android Apps for Photography

The cameras on smartphones and tablets are getting better and better. Gone are the days when all you could produce from your phone were grainy, poor quality images. It’s got to the point now that the camera on your phone is arguably leaving compact cameras obsolete. After all, your smartphone is always with you and therefore so is your camera. It’s compact and allows for almost instant upload to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Instagram Instagram allows you to take photos (which are then cropped into a square) and add one of 19 filters, all of which ... Read More »

FaceFilter3 PRO Review

Quality beauty retouching is a difficult thing. Professional retouchers spend years honing their craft and coaxing pixels in their efforts to beautify portrait shots.

They’ve taken the years of experience gained from in-depth study of portrait retouching and crafted a rather ingenious set of tools to provide even amateurs with the ability to beautify ...

Wacom Intuos Pro Review

Wacom Intuos Pro Review

Wacom turned 30 in 2013, and to celebrate it gave its pen tablets a shiny new look and name. The Intuos Pro range, once known as Intuos 5, is designed for those of us looking to take painting and editing more seriously. The new models now come with the wireless adapter kit straight out of the box, and enabled us to edit freely without getting tangled up in loose cables. The wireless adapter uses a small battery pack to power the tablet, which requires charging up through the day before it’s ready to use. The battery tucks neatly inside the ... Read More »

Adobe Photoshop Q and A

Adobe Photoshop Q and A

What are the Mac and Mac LCD anti-aliasing options in the Type menu used for? There may be times when you’re designing a project in Photoshop CC and you’d like the type in the design to mimic what it would look like if it appeared in a Web browser. Simply choose either Mac or Mac LCD (PC: Windows or Windows LCD) under Type>Anti-Alias. This will create semitransparent/ shaded pixels around the text that will give it a crisper look, mimicking what you’d see in the browser. What’s the difference between the Adaptive Wide Angle and Lens Correction filters in Photoshop? ... Read More »

Topaz Restyle – Photoshop Plug-in for Photographic Effects

Topaz Restyle – Photoshop Plug-in for Photographic Effects

Digital photos offer rich, clear, and dynamic image quality; however, the lighting, color, and clarity can make the difference between another nice landscape, skyline, or portrait and one that can hang on a museum wall. ReStyle from Topaz Labs makes its debut to fill that need and set the scene for creating photos with compelling richness and quality. From the familiar interface that Topaz fans know, ReStyle does what its name suggests: It allows the user to introduce seemingly limitless combinations of tones and visual styles. Between the creatively named presets and its ability to mask/select specific photo elements, ReStyle ... Read More »

Portraits as Still Lifes

Portraits as Still Lifes

The intersection of portraiture and still-life photography is a fascinating area to explore and express symbolism of emotion, history, and perception. In my opinion, the simpler the inanimate object, the richer the final portrait can be. With a person in the image, there’s no reason to be heavy-handed or cliché, as we are naturally fascinated by pictures of people. Photography allows us to gaze at a person, and the addition of the object encourages our minds to create new combinations of meaning. An egg is among the most symbolic objects with great religious and cultural meaning for life, hope, and ... Read More »
