This is something I did last year and really enjoyed it and received a lot of positive feedback so I thought I’d try it again this year.
If you send me your unedited RAW or JPG photos I will use Luminar to edit them for you. These photos can really be of any subject, landscapes, portraits, macro it’s up to you. Read More
I know a lot of people who just really want a quick way to improve their photos. They don’t want to be spending hours on a single edit, using layers and playing with various different sliders. If that sounds like you then this post and video is perfect for you, we’ll be using two sliders and that’s it. Read More
Have you ever got home and edited a photo only to notice a dust spot or watermark? Add to that a random bird in the sky or something similar.
We’ve all been there and especially if like me your camera sensor is dirty and you’ve never got round to cleaning it. Read More
This video is part of a new series that I’ll be putting together. I’ll be showing you lots of quick tips that you might not have known that Skylum Luminar can do.
To start things off this is all about their libraries and albums. People may think that this is a feature only found in Lightroom but it is also part of Luminar. A place where you can organise all of your photos. Read More
Another part of the Aurora HDR 2019 series, this time I edit a jpeg photo from a Google Pixel 2. I hope this shows that you don’t need to just use this software for RAW bracketed files.
This was the photo that I started with, unedited and straight out of the phone. Read More
Ooo I've been waiting for this moment, this is the brand new Aurora HDR 2019. Let me make this clear, Aurora HDR is by far the best piece of software for creating HDR photos. If you want to take HDR photos you can read my full HDR Tutorial here. Read More
I wanted to show you a quick way you can find new presets and install them with a click of a button.
This photo was supplied by John from DadBlogUK, and you can see how I used a layer to enhance the tree.
You can download the original file and edit yourself if you wish. Read More
The all-new Skylum Luminar 2018, this year is faster, better and coming in 2018 file management.
This for me is almost the complete package and I think with the updates coming it really will be. I've created a short video to show you a few of the features that I think you will love. Read More
A complete HDR photography solution developed by Macphun and Trey Ratcliff.
For the FIRST time EVER it is also available on Windows...this is awesome news.
The user interface of Aurora HDR has been completely re-designed from scratch. Flatter, modern and ultra-responsive, every tool is exactly where you expect it. Read More
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. Read More
