Editing Sony A7iii RAW Photos from Jared Polin

Editing Sony A7iii RAW Photos from Jared Polin

The A7iii is the latest full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony and it's their 'entry-level' one. It's a 24.2mp all singing all dancing, 690+ focus points, touch-screen, 4K recording camera. 

Priced at £2,000 for a professional camera it's not too expensive, don't get me wrong it's expensive but not compared to D4 iv or D850.

AI Photo Editing using Photolemur

AI Photo Editing using Photolemur

I often get sent new bits of software and most I just dismiss. I'm happy using Lightroom, Aurora and Luminar and between them, they do exactly what I want. 

The other day I was asked if I wanted to try a new piece of software that uses AI to edit the photo so that you don't have to do anything. The exposure, colours, etc are all sorted for you. You load a photo and the software does everything for you. 

This is called PhotoLemur and I think you'll like it.
