I have copies of Lightroom and Aperture, and they sit on my computer doing nothing! I'm too lazy to place all of my photos into either of these programs, and then name them for purposes of easy finding.So I keep adding new photos every day, and still don't do anything!
Coming back to the the subject of these programs, they are multi-tasking, or in other words, they can do several things.
1. They collect all of your photos in 1 place
2. You can add titles and ratings to them (best to worst)
3. You can improve the quality of the image in them like the basics of Photoshop
I was up early this morning, and decided to check my e-mail. I found a message from DXO informing me that there was a new version of Optics Pro 8, and that I could download a 31 day trial.
What's good about adding your name to mailing lists from companies is that you get informed about new updates and versions. I had written about Optics Pro on my other blog. Sadly, I'm not getting very many visitors, so I don't write many new posts there.
The reason that I'm writing a post about Optics Pro 8 here is that I wanted to show you what such a program is all about. It might even help you to organize all of your photos (Just like I might do 1 day!). I'm not going to bother comparing this program to other programs. It's up to you to decide what's best for you, in terms of ease of use, cost, speed, or any other criteria that you use to determine buying software. What I didi find right away is that the program is fast! Normally some of the other programs have a slight delay when you press any instruction. With this program it moves fast!
The program allows you to do many corrections that you would normally do with your camera software or Photoshop or Corel.
The image on the left is the camera image, and that on the right is the "corrected" image.
In the workspace mode, you can do you "corrections". What any of these program do is to always create a new file, rather than replace or update he photo. In this way, you always have the "original"
This menu allows you to experiment with images like people used to when the B & W or colour darkroom was around. There are all kinds of menus that you can use to alter or improve your photos. By the way, DXO has many software programs to do all kinds of experimentation of your photos!
The Vibrancy command moved to -100.
