DxO PhotoLab 6 & ViewPoint 4

The RAW photo editing software that will take your images to the next level.
Intuitive tools delivering unparelleled quality!
Power and efficiency. Science and creativity.

SIX REASONS WHY DxO PhotoLab6 is the RAW photo editing software for you:

  • Unparalleled image quality – DxO’s unique DeepPRIME denoising and exceptional color science raise the bar for RAW processing.
  • Innovative creative tools – Master color and tone with powerful, creative editing tools that you won’t find anywhere else.
  • Powerful photo management – Search and sort your photos with simple, effective tags, keywords, and project hierarchies.
  • Legendary optical corrections – Market-leading corrections built on 20 years of research, giving you sharper images, free of imperfections.
  • Intuitive local adjustments – with DxO’s exclusive U Point (TM) technology you can make targeted edits without tricky masks.
  • No subscription – DxO’s software has always been free of subscription – once you buy it, it’s yours for good!

**Purchase (new user) for
$219 (OR – 4 pmts of $54.75)**

**Upgrade (current user) for $75 (OR – 4 pmts of $18.75)**

* * * * * * * *

AND…PAIR IT WITH DxO ViewPoint 4!

Geometric perfection!
DxO ViewPoint 4 gives you complete control over lines, angles, and shapes.
Adjust perspectives, fix distortions, warp specific areas,
and correct wide-angle stretching for perfect images.

  • Get the perfect angle, every time – DxO ViewPoint 4 can be used as a standalone application, as a tool palette within DxO PhotoLab, and as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic and Photoshop Elements.
  • ReShape: A warping tool that delivers magic – In some shots, details matter more than others. Thanks to DxO ViewPoint’s innovative new ReShape tool, fixing imperfections has never been easier. Choose a Distortion Grid that fits the image, then simply drag points to correct individual elements within the frame. You’ll quickly bring the world under your control.
  • Defeat distortions in an instant – Lenses aren’t perfect, but DxO ViewPoint 4 makes them better. In fact, even cheap optics can look pro once they’re processed with our award-winning optical correction tools. Draw on DxO’s renowned lens correction technology and fix barrel, pincushion and fish-eye distortion with a single click.
  • Get the right balance – When balance is key, you can achieve perfect poise with DxO ViewPoint’s powerful perspective tools. Choose from four methods to get exactly the results you need, no matter what the subject: Auto; 8 points; vertical and horizontal; rectangle.
  • All of the drama, none of the distortion – Wide-angle lenses are vital for tight spaces, getting close to subjects, and showing the dramatic scale scene. But that doesn’t come for free. A wide-angle will also stretch and distort anything close to the edge of the frame. DxO ViewPoint’s Volume Deformation tool can return a subject’s natural proportions in just a few clicks.
  • Flip and rotate your images with ease – Mirror your images through a vertical or horizontal axis in just a single click, and rotate your image to find the right composition.
  • Find your level the easy way – Landscape and architecture shots need a straight horizon. Anything else won’t do. ViewPoint 4’s upgraded Crop Tool makes this easy with full rotation control direct from the cropping box, so it’s easier to reframe your photos with absolute precision.
  • Get creative – Use the Miniature Effect tool to simulate a tiny world like that produced by tilt-shift lenses. The smooth bokeh produced by DxO ViewPoint 4 can also replicate a shallow depth of field, and can be used to reduce distractions and push the viewer’s eye exactly where you want it – something that can be very useful when adding text to an image.

Sunday Sampler Oct. 23

Today’s Sunday Sampler consists of cracked, peeling walls in the Historic Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary in TN. We visited there on Friday as part of a Fall Barns & Back Roads Workshop! Remember, you can always desaturate a texture to get the texture without changing the color of your image, or, especially in the case of the multi-colored one, apply a Gaussian Blur to turn it into a soft bokeh background! Enjoy!

WEBINAR REPLAY

What a fun webinar!
“How Do I Decide What Textures to Use?”

A question that I am often asked is, “HOW do you decide which texture or textures to use on your image?

I did not choose textures ahead of time, just the images I used! You don’t want to miss this replay!!

AND…PAIR IT WITH DxO ViewPoint 4!

Geometric perfection!
DxO ViewPoint 4 gives you complete control over lines, angles, and shapes.
Adjust perspectives, fix distortions, warp specific areas,
and correct wide-angle stretching for perfect images.

  • Get the perfect angle, every time – DxO ViewPoint 4 can be used as a standalone application, as a tool palette within DxO PhotoLab, and as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom Classic and Photoshop Elements.
  • ReShape: A warping tool that delivers magic – In some shots, details matter more than others. Thanks to DxO ViewPoint’s innovative new ReShape tool, fixing imperfections has never been easier. Choose a Distortion Grid that fits the image, then simply drag points to correct individual elements within the frame. You’ll quickly bring the world under your control.
  • Defeat distortions in an instant – Lenses aren’t perfect, but DxO ViewPoint 4 makes them better. In fact, even cheap optics can look pro once they’re processed with our award-winning optical correction tools. Draw on DxO’s renowned lens correction technology and fix barrel, pincushion and fish-eye distortion with a single click.
  • Get the right balance – When balance is key, you can achieve perfect poise with DxO ViewPoint’s powerful perspective tools. Choose from four methods to get exactly the results you need, no matter what the subject: Auto; 8 points; vertical and horizontal; rectangle.
  • All of the drama, none of the distortion – Wide-angle lenses are vital for tight spaces, getting close to subjects, and showing the dramatic scale scene. But that doesn’t come for free. A wide-angle will also stretch and distort anything close to the edge of the frame. DxO ViewPoint’s Volume Deformation tool can return a subject’s natural proportions in just a few clicks.
  • Flip and rotate your images with ease – Mirror your images through a vertical or horizontal axis in just a single click, and rotate your image to find the right composition.
  • Find your level the easy way – Landscape and architecture shots need a straight horizon. Anything else won’t do. ViewPoint 4’s upgraded Crop Tool makes this easy with full rotation control direct from the cropping box, so it’s easier to reframe your photos with absolute precision.
  • Get creative – Use the Miniature Effect tool to simulate a tiny world like that produced by tilt-shift lenses. The smooth bokeh produced by DxO ViewPoint 4 can also replicate a shallow depth of field, and can be used to reduce distractions and push the viewer’s eye exactly where you want it – something that can be very useful when adding text to an image.

Luminar Neo
Next Extenstion Revealed!

Skylum revealed this week that the next in the first batch of 7 Extensions will be “Supersharp AI” releasing in November. The first extension was HDR Merge, then Noiseless AI, which have been released. In November, we will get the releases of Upscale AI, AI Background Removal (for non-portrait images), and Focus Stacking in addition to Supersharp AI. There will be one more release in December, which has not been announced yet.

If you already own Luminar Neo as a purchased product, it would be beneficial to switch to the new yearly plan for just $79 (renews at $99). This gives you access to all 7 extensions releasing in 2022, AND any extensions that release in 2023 up to your renewal date!!

If you do not currently own any Skylum products, you can get the subscription for $89 (renews at $99).

And if you purchase the subscription now, you get an additional 3 months FREE!

If you wish to not do the subscription and just purchase the extensions, they sell for $219 (reg. $299) for only the seven 2022 releases. Any extensions released in 2023 would be an additional cost.

I know people tend to shy away from software subscriptions, but in this case, I think it’s a really good deal!

Nature First
The Alliance for Responsible
Nature Photography


If you are a nature photographer – or any photographer that cares about our natural resources – please keep reading to find out more about Nature First, The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography.

Keep reading to find out more about the seven principles of Nature First, and find out how you can make a difference (it is FREE to join the organization!).

Nature First was launched in the spring of 2019. So far, it has members in over 40 countries and many of the world’s top nature photographers are members. Nature First exists to promote responsible nature photography through the seven principles:

The Nature First Principles were developed to help educate and guide both professional and recreational photographers in sustainable, minimal impact practices that will help preserve nature’s beautiful locations.

Some of the Earth’s greatest landscapes and treasured natural areas are threatened by increased visitation and general lack of care. We aim to preserve these places by building an alliance of responsible photographers and cultivate a community of local ambassadors and partners to help spread the word.

I am pleased to announce I have become an Ambassador for Nature First! I first read about the group just over a year ago, and I firmly believe that we ALL have a responsibility to protect our natural resources, and to encourage others to do so as well.

“How Do I Decide What Textures to Use?”

A question that I am often asked is, “HOW do you decide which texture or textures to use on your image? What is your thought process and where does one begin?” I’m going to do some “live” edits and show you my process. I will not choose textures ahead of time, just the images I’ll be using! You’ll see exactly how I decide on textures to try, then if I’ll keep them or trash them! This will be fun!!

Due to the fact that I won’t have the textures pre-selected, the notes for this webinar will be available a day or two AFTER the webinar!

Nature First
The Alliance for Responsible
Nature Photography


If you are a nature photographer – or any photographer that cares about our natural resources – please keep reading to find out more about Nature First, The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography.

Keep reading to find out more about the seven principles of Nature First, and find out how you can make a difference (it is FREE to join the organization!).

Nature First was launched in the spring of 2019. So far, it has members in over 40 countries and many of the world’s top nature photographers are members. Nature First exists to promote responsible nature photography through the seven principles:

The Nature First Principles were developed to help educate and guide both professional and recreational photographers in sustainable, minimal impact practices that will help preserve nature’s beautiful locations.

Some of the Earth’s greatest landscapes and treasured natural areas are threatened by increased visitation and general lack of care. We aim to preserve these places by building an alliance of responsible photographers and cultivate a community of local ambassadors and partners to help spread the word.

I am pleased to announce I have become an Ambassador for Nature First! I first read about the group just over a year ago, and I firmly believe that we ALL have a responsibility to protect our natural resources, and to encourage others to do so as well.

Please consider joining Nature First and help make a difference

SPECIAL SOFTWARE DEAL!
ENDS TOMORROW!

In my last webinar I briefly mentioned Rebelle Software (by Escape Motions). It’s not one that alters a photo, but lets you actually paint and create art! It regularly sells for $149, but for the 10th Anniversary Sale you can grab this program for JUST $10!!! Yes, you did read that correctly, just $10! I already got my copy!

They also make Flame Painter (reg. $89.99), Amberlight ($89.99) and Inspirit (reg. $29.99). You can get each of these for $10 as well!! I have Inspirit on my iPad (it creates mandalas).

Yesterday I did the bundle of Rebelle/Amberlight/Flame Painter for $30. I have an older version of Flame Painter, but this one has even more effects. I’m not an artist by any stretch, but I think these will be fun!

Again, these are not products that you use with actual photos, but that you can create art and various effects with.

Check them out on their website HERE

OFFER ENDS TOMORROW, OCTOBER 13TH, 2022

A few people have asked me if I will do a webinar on these products. Yes, as soon as I can learn them myself!! In the meantime, you can check out videos from Escape Motions on their YouTube channel HERE!

NEXT WEBINAR

Join me on Tuesday, October 18th at 4:00 p.m.
“How Do I Decide What Textures to Use?”

A question that I am often asked is, “HOW do you decide which texture or textures to use on your image? What is your thought process and where does one begin?” I’m going to do some “live” edits and show you my process. I will not choose textures ahead of time, just the images I’ll be using! You’ll see exactly how I decide on textures to try, then if I’ll keep them or trash them! This will be fun!!

Due to the fact that I won’t have the textures pre-selected, the notes for this webinar will be available a day or two AFTER the webinar!
