Tutorial Thursday November 25

For today’s tutorial, I’ll review some of the Q&A from Tuesday’s webinar.

Q: Does a file stay in RAW mode after processing in Snapseed (or other programs).

A: No. Like in Photoshop or any processing program, a RAW format is the camera’s capture format. A file cannot be saved in RAW after processing. Some phone apps allow saving as a TIF file, but most save as a JPG file.

Q: I was asked how I moved images from my phone to computer or moved my logo image from computer to phone.

A: If you’re a Mac computer and iPhone/iPad, you can just use Airdrop. Another viewer mentioned she uses PhotoSync to transfer files. I have an iPhone/iPad but am a PC user. I use a handy item called a DuoLink (it plugs into my Apple device on one end and has a USB plug on the other end for the computer) – SEE IT HERE

COMMENT: One of the apps I demonstrated was Stackables. It seems that this app has been retired (bummer!). It seems to have been replaced by “Formulas – Photo Lab Effects and Custom Frames”….however, this app has not been updated in 5 years, so it may not be a good replacement for newer phones and updated operating systems! I also demonstrated Mextures, which was updated 6 months ago (some comments on the app mention that it is slow – I have no problem on my iPhone 8+ or my iPad).

COMMENT: Another great app – that I didn’t mention in the webinar – is iColorama. It is extremely powerful, though a bit involved to learn (I don’t know enough about it yet to teach it!). It’s one of the things on my “to do” list (why does that list seem to get longer instead of shorter?!).

CLICK HERE FOR A LIST OF THE APPS USED IN THE WEBINAR (I also note which ones are available for Androids as well as iPhones, the prices and the icon for the app so you know you’re getting the right one.

And…see further below for the Black Friday Special on JixiPix Apps for Desktop/iPad!

Tutorial Thursday November 11

This article is from Outdoor Photographer, and is a good reminder of “Everyday Items That Belong in Your Camera Bag”.

LUMINAR NEWS!
IMPORTANT UPDATE!

Today Skylum announced some of the awesome new features of the upcoming Luminar Neo!

Dust RemovalAI — When capturing images in the field, artifacts can be introduced from dust on the surface of a lens or dust that finds its way onto the sensor during a lens change. After using AI to automatically detect these artifacts, Dust RemovalAI removes them to provide a spotless result. Now, artists can easily fix ruined photos, clean distracting spots in images, and save their beautiful memories.

Line RemovalAI — Used separately or as part of SkyAI, this new tool automatically removes unwanted power lines and phone lines from the sky in landscape photos. Whether editing photos of weddings, landscapes, or popular sightseeing spots, automatically getting rid of unwanted lines allows artists to focus on making powerful images, not cleaning up distractions.

Overlays leverage the power AI-enabled compositing
Skylum has already revealed RelightAI and Portrait Background RemovalAI, two tools that use Layers and the new MaskAI feature to help artists move beyond photo editing and explore compositing as a tool for creative expression. Overlays, graphic and photographic elements with a transparency channel, are yet another way for artists to break out of the photographic box.
To light the creative fire, Luminar Neo includes a rich library of free overlay content. Our community of artists and ambassadors regularly add new overlay content to the Luminar Marketplace, which is directly accessible from within Luminar Neo. Finally, using MaskAI, creators can create and save custom overlays to be used across their body of work.

Luminar Share

After editing comes another important yet sometimes tedious step in the artist’s workflow: exporting images from desktop to mobile in order to share them. Today, the sharing process is complicated and requires third-party services. Syncing to cloud drives is helpful, but what is really needed is a round-trip experience that fully integrates mobile devices with desktop editing. Luminar Share does exactly that. With Luminar Share, we aim to completely remove exporting complications and give artists the possibility to share their work in one click directly from the desktop.

A native mobile app, Luminar Share connects the photo library on Android and iOS mobile devices directly to Luminar Neo. Using a QR code pairing tool similar to those found in WhatsApp, Signal, and other synced messaging services, Luminar Share creates a secure link between a mobile photo library and Luminar Neo. Advantages include:

  • A completely secure and private connection
  • Automatic, round-trip synchronization of photos and edits
  • Direct sharing from Luminar Neo to social networks (e.g. Instagram)
  • No additional cost for cloud storage

Skylum is looking forward to growing and developing in the mobile field, and Luminar Share is the first big step towards that goal. From photographers sharing their work to influencers sharing a new look or a new adventure, visual storytellers of every stripe will find Luminar Share to be a great resource. At launch, it will be available for Android and iOS mobile devices.

Availability

Luminar Neo ships this winter with Luminar Share, Dust RemovalAI, Line RemovalAI, and other exciting tools. Early-bird pricing for the Luminar Neo application and plugin includes a 30-day money-back guarantee from the time of shipping. Luminar Neo will also be carried in both the Microsoft Store and macOS App Store.

LUMINAR NEWS!

Today Skylum announced some of the awesome new features of the upcoming Luminar Neo!

Dust RemovalAI — When capturing images in the field, artifacts can be introduced from dust on the surface of a lens or dust that finds its way onto the sensor during a lens change. After using AI to automatically detect these artifacts, Dust RemovalAI removes them to provide a spotless result. Now, artists can easily fix ruined photos, clean distracting spots in images, and save their beautiful memories.

Line RemovalAI — Used separately or as part of SkyAI, this new tool automatically removes unwanted power lines and phone lines from the sky in landscape photos. Whether editing photos of weddings, landscapes, or popular sightseeing spots, automatically getting rid of unwanted lines allows artists to focus on making powerful images, not cleaning up distractions.

Overlays leverage the power AI-enabled compositing
Skylum has already revealed RelightAI and Portrait Background RemovalAI, two tools that use Layers and the new MaskAI feature to help artists move beyond photo editing and explore compositing as a tool for creative expression. Overlays, graphic and photographic elements with a transparency channel, are yet another way for artists to break out of the photographic box.
To light the creative fire, Luminar Neo includes a rich library of free overlay content. Our community of artists and ambassadors regularly add new overlay content to the Luminar Marketplace, which is directly accessible from within Luminar Neo. Finally, using MaskAI, creators can create and save custom overlays to be used across their body of work.

Luminar Share

After editing comes another important yet sometimes tedious step in the artist’s workflow: exporting images from desktop to mobile in order to share them. Today, the sharing process is complicated and requires third-party services. Syncing to cloud drives is helpful, but what is really needed is a round-trip experience that fully integrates mobile devices with desktop editing. Luminar Share does exactly that. With Luminar Share, we aim to completely remove exporting complications and give artists the possibility to share their work in one click directly from the desktop.

A native mobile app, Luminar Share connects the photo library on Android and iOS mobile devices directly to Luminar Neo. Using a QR code pairing tool similar to those found in WhatsApp, Signal, and other synced messaging services, Luminar Share creates a secure link between a mobile photo library and Luminar Neo. Advantages include:

  • A completely secure and private connection
  • Automatic, round-trip synchronization of photos and edits
  • Direct sharing from Luminar Neo to social networks (e.g. Instagram)
  • No additional cost for cloud storage

Skylum is looking forward to growing and developing in the mobile field, and Luminar Share is the first big step towards that goal. From photographers sharing their work to influencers sharing a new look or a new adventure, visual storytellers of every stripe will find Luminar Share to be a great resource. At launch, it will be available for Android and iOS mobile devices.

Availability

Luminar Neo ships this winter with Luminar Share, Dust RemovalAI, Line RemovalAI, and other exciting tools. Early-bird pricing for the Luminar Neo application and plugin includes a 30-day money-back guarantee from the time of shipping. Luminar Neo will also be carried in both the Microsoft Store and macOS App Store.

Sunday Sampler November 7

Today’s Sunday Sampler began as rust. I created 3 versions in pastel colors – great for lightly texturing an image (remember, you can always turn a texture to B&W to get the texture without changing the colors of your image). Enjoy!
