Last month, Skylum introduced a brand new software named Luminar NEO. Since it’s the company’s third image editing tool, lots of users were left confused. Who is it for? What is its main purpose? And most of all – how is it different from the two older Skylum’s software, Luminar 4 and Luminar AI? Well, we’re finally bringing you the answers to the questions that might have been bothering you.
Most phone photo editing apps allow you to remove unwanted objects from your photos. VSCO has finally decided to join the party and it has introduced the new Remove tool to its app. If this is your go-to editing app, from now on, you’ll be able to remove unwanted objects without leaving the app.
I remember when I started shooting RAW and discovered Lightroom back in 2011. I was thrilled and overwhelmed by all the possibilities that were suddenly before me. And even though I wasn’t all that new at photography, it sure felt like it since this was a whole new world.
If you can relate, Nigel Danson has a video for you. He gives you seven simple Lightroom tips that you should definitely know if you’re new to photography, shooting RAW, or Lightroom. And trust me, they work, and they’ll help you raise your editing to a whole new level.
Recently, Capture One released their latest v14.3 update. It came with some great new updates like the Magic Brush, but their attempt to “streamline” the user interface experience seems to have made quite a lot of their professional users pretty upset. At least, that’s what the feedback on social media suggests.
As PetaPixel reports, the Output Tab has been removed along with specific associated features – breaking many workflows for photographers and editors. Some feel this is Capture One essentially trying to dumb down the interface for the more casual consumer and not their core professional user base that’s driven much of their growth since the product was first launched.
Norway has introduced a new law aimed to tackle unrealistic and potentially dangerous beauty standards. From now on, any social media post made for promotional purposes has to clearly state if the photos or videos in it were altered. Those who don’t do it will be fined or even end up in jail.
Unless we use precise adjustments or a grey card, some cameras tend to make the white balance a little off. This especially holds true for phone cameras, and I must admit that my Nikon doesn’t do a great job in some conditions, either. But it can be an easy fix. In fact, there are several ways to make it just right, and Cristi Kerekes presents you with three of them that he finds the simplest and the most helpful.
DxO has just announced Nik Collection 4. There are some new features like Meta Presets, whereas some old features have been improved, including interaction with Photoshop and Lightroom. So, let’s see what’s new and what’s pimped up in the latest Nik Collection.
If the name James (Jamie) Fridman rings a bell, that’s because his work has probably made you laugh out loud at least once. Jamie is not only a Photoshop wizard but also a man with a fantastic sense of humor. And when you bring those two together, you get hilarious Photoshop creations you’d probably never think of.
Jamie accepts submissions from his followers with requests to edit their photos. Like many other retouchers, right? The catch is that Jamie takes his clients’ requests very literally, so the work he sends back is quirky, unexpected, and downright hilarious.
If your editing software is not available to you for any reason, using a browser-based one is a great option. Colorcinch is one that recently appeared, and it’s a pretty capable and fast option. It’s also free to use (although there’s a paid premium version too), so let’s see what you get and how it works.
This is the final part of a five-part series on the free and open-source Lightroom alternative, Darktable by photographer Chris Parker. Chris didn’t write a post to accompany the fifth video in the series, but we didn’t want to leave the series of posts unfinished, so here we are.
If you missed them, check out parts 1-4, covering Getting started with Darktable, Importing your images into Darktable, Processing your RAW files in Darktable, and Exporting images from Darktable for editing in another application. Another application like GIMP (which is also free and open-source). And that’s what this final video is about.
