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

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. Anybody who has ever attempted a beauty retouching project in Photoshop understands just how difficult it can be. It requires a deep understanding of facial structures, skin tones, make-up and more. However, Reallusion’s latest offering of FaceFilter3 PRO puts expert-level retouching tools directly into your hands. 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 ...

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 »

Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 Review

Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 Review

Following on from the release of its Creative Cloud suite of applications, Adobe has updated Photoshop Elements. Version 12 introduces new effects, frames and filters, as well as the Content-Aware Move tool previously seen in Photoshop CC. As in previous iterations, the main photo-editing interface provides access to tools such as levels, exposure, colour, cropping tools and red-eye removal. When it comes to its new effects, textures and photo frames, these appear to have been inspired by the Instagram generation. To access these, you’ll need to have an image open in Quick Edit mode and click the appropriate tab in ... Read More »

Retouching Actions for Photoshop – Smooth Skins 2

Retouching Actions for Photoshop – Smooth Skins 2

Improving upon an already outstanding set of Photoshop actions is a task that requires developers to somehow outdo themselves for their customers; however, when they respond to their end users, the results lead them to smooth sailing in the often rough seas of the creative professional products. Once again, Digital Heavens cruises past the competition with their effortless set of skin-retouching action sets that take users on a gorgeous ride. In the original version of Smooth Skins, the actions allowed even the grittiest of portraits to be refined. It was done in such a way that your results could go ... Read More »

DXO Viewpoint 2

DXO Viewpoint 2

ViewPoint 2 uses the company’s lens database to correct an image. It installs as a standalone app or an Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, or Aperture plug-in. Lens distortion, which is the first panel in the sidebar, is corrected automatically, based on DxO’s database. The Perspective tool corrects vertical, horizontal, 4-point, and 8-point distortions. You can find the first three in other apps, as well (Capture One Pro 7, for example, has an identical perspective-correction tool); however, the 8-point correction feature in ViewPoint 2 is unique and offers dramatic improvements in perspective correction. The 8-point perspective correction allows you to place the ... Read More »

Windows Solution for Multiple Displays: Actual Multiple Monitors

Windows Solution for Multiple Displays: Actual Multiple Monitors

Flexibility and real estate are essential for my animation and graphics workflow, and I’ve always used multiple displays, but the toolbars, menus, and other items that I needed on the second monitor were a bit cumbersome. I’ve tried many products to solve this dilemma, but nothing ever really captured what was needed—until now. The Actual Multiple Monitors name really does describe what it is and what it does! As I dived into this review, I was surprised to find many robust features. First, the program offers the most-requested functionality of having a taskbar on each monitor. This allows you to ...

Emulsion Emulator for Photoshop : Exposure 5

Emulsion Emulator for Photoshop : Exposure 5

This incredible hybrid of past, present, and futuristic analog film effects has come a long way from its first release. Most notably, insofar as new features are concerned, Alien Skin has given its vintage-retro-loving plug-in a new, darker user interface and preset browser. Navigating is faster, and performance improvement isn’t solely dependent on your hardware, making this a noticeable upgrade for fans of previous versions. While Exposure was always great at reproducing favorite film emulsions and effects, version 5 provides more control and precision to create a richer, more dynamic look. Another noticeable improvement is in the appearance of the ... Read More »
