MacOS 10.13 High Sierra was released back in September 2017, but Wacom users who upgraded noticed that their tablets wouldn’t work. Wacom has approached DIYP to let the community know about the latest news: they have released a further driver update that lets your tablet work with High Sierra MacOS system software.[Read More…]
A few months ago, Adobe announced a revolutionary feature that would let you select subjects in Photoshop CC with a single click. The latest update is now launched, and the Select Subject Tool is available. With this tool, you can select the subjects automatically, which should help you significantly speed up your editing workflow.
It may be DXOMark’s highest scoring mobile device camera ever, but the Google Pixel is not without its photographic flaws. Quite a few users have reported getting flare or “halo effect” issues with their camera when it’s not even in the shot. The thing with lens flare, though, is that it’s a physical hardware issue. This is why DSLR and mirrorless lenses come with hoods. They block the light from entering the lens and reflecting inside the optics causing flare.
While Google acknowledge that the problem exists, and will be addressing it, they are combating this hardware problem with a software solution. The general idea will be that some algorithm will recognise the flare, and then mathematically subtract it from the image. So, it’s not really eliminating the flare, just faking its removal in software.
We all like a little salt and pepper every now and then, but we aren’t huge fans of Photoshop adding it to our photos at random. Last month we dug into how Photoshop CC 2015 was adding salt-like artifacts to images when using the healing brush. Needless to say, this didn’t go over well with photographers using the feature.
Yesterday, Adobe released Photoshop 2015.0.1, a much-needed update that corrected this issue along with a variety of others, including crashing issues for both Mac and Windows users.
The 2015 release of Adobe Creative Cloud brought many new features, and for that we were happy. Now we (or, at least I) am happy once again.
Adobe has just rolled out the first official update to Premiere Pro CC 2015. Along with fixes to audio and workflow problems, the new update promises to correct performance and stability issues. That is what makes me happy.
The latest release of Adobe CC has brought with it a number of exciting updates to the world’s most popular image editing and creative publishing suite. Among those updates is the new “dehaze” feature in both Lightroom and Photoshop Camera Raw. While various techniques have perviously existed to accomplish the same thing, now users have a simplified and intuitive process for eliminating that annoying haze and breathing more life into their photos.
Though it is almost as interesting to see what applying dehaze on an (almost) haze free photo will do. Reddit user Mefaso shared his experiment and I have to admit that it is quite awesome if not over done.
Adobe has announced their 2015 release of Creative Cloud, packed with new feature and updates that are enough to make almost anyone want to switch over to the subscription platform.
In addition to updates for video, photo editing, and image manipulation, Adobe has added features such as CreativeSync to give you a seamless workflow between mobile and desktop applications.
Joining Sony’s system of over 60 lenses are the ZEISS Distagon T* FE 35mm F1.4 ZA wide angle lens, an FE 90mm F2.8 Macro G OSS lens, an FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS hi-magnification zoom lens and an FE 28mm F2 wide angle prime lens.
The lenses are all currently listed as “New Arrival” shipping within 7-14 business days at B&H, but that is most likely a mistake as they should be available in April, July, March (in two weeks time, so this one is correct) and May, respectively.
The new α E-mount lenses are accompanied by two sets of ultra-wide and fisheye converters, one for the newly announced 28mm lens and the other for existing APS-C E-mount lenses.
Sony has also released a software update for several FE full-frame E-mount lenses that will shorten start up time.
