Adobe released a new feature in Lightroom Classic CC a few week ago that saw a new slider added to the Basic panel of the Develop Module. This slider is the Texture Slider.
Every now and then a company does something that makes you go wow!!! Why hasn't that been done before? Take Dyson for example, they re-invented the Vacuum Cleaner and the Fan. Very household items that we would be using the same crappy bag and cleaning the blades of the fans, if that company hasn't gone and questioned. Why? I love Peak Design for the same reasons. They do things that bigger companies won't because they just want your money!! Peak Design has been known for their Kickstarter campaigns that have gone far and beyond any Kickstarter in the past. They create great products...
In this video I share a very useful tip for Long Exposure Photography. What your camera does when you take a long exposure is that it will wait the same length as the exposure to process the image.
Some say I’m lucky that my job gets me to travel the world but actually most people don’t understand that its not as glamorous as it seems.
A few months ago, I discovered this very cool software called JPEGmini Pro which is designed to optimise your JPEG file size without compromising the quality of the image.
A while ago, I created a blog post to talk about my travel backup strategy and it was received well by you guys. Now I decided to create a YouTube video to share this information.
Happy New Year reader (well depends when you are reading this)!! it was the start of new year when I published this. So I hope you are having a great year. As you or your loved ones spoil you over the Christmas and Holiday season, I’m sure there are some of us who have got our first camera or upgraded to that “next” camera you wanted.
So did I!! I bought an Fujifilm X-T3 which was on sale after Christmas and I had my eye on it for quite sometime. Hence I was keen to setup this camera with my own preferences. But this time I decided to document it as a video which you can watch on my YouTube channel.
Luminar 3 is out now and available on pre-order (until 18th December). After this date you can purchase the software directly from Skylum and download the bundle.
Skylum recently released an update to its Luminar 2018 editing software which uses AI (Artificial Intelligence) to enhance the sky in any image that has sky (of course). It a FREE update that is available to all its current users who have Luminar 2018. So I decided to put this new slider to a test. Found a few images with different kinds of sky on my computer and loaded them up in Luminar 2018 to put this new feature to the test. To my surprise it works pretty well and its very clever in terms of detecting where the sky is and only enhancing it. Try the slider...
Printing is not something most of us do often. We take tons of photos but they simply sit on our digital devices such as phone, computers and tablets. We are so used to consuming photos on our digital devices that we forget that printing was ever a thing back in the day of Film. Reason #1 - Put Those Megapixels to Work Each and every camera that comes out pushes the boundaries and envelope of the number of Megapixels that can be packed into a camera. So if you don't print, you are simply wasting those Megapixels that are in your camera. All the photos sitting on your computer, phone or...
