Photographic Software Tips

The fourth post in this month’s themed series of useful photography information focuses on the big two photographic software programs; Photoshop and Lightroom. So, while the information is free, the software isn’t. Personally, I try to get as much right in the camera as I can. Photography is my hobby and I work on computers […]

Future Bookcovers

So, it’s a little early to think that anyone writing a NaNoWriMo novel is done, but I think maybe people could use a break. Hopefully, you all haven’t given up yet and are still writing.  But, I know it’s a hard slog, so I thought maybe taking a break to think about a cover for […]

Essential Photoshop Skills for Photographers

I’m not entirely sure I agree with this list, actually. I tend to follow the dictum that, as photographers, we should strive to make a better photograph in the camera, not in the computer. However, the reality of the modern age is that Photoshop exists and, well, the people who use it will tend to […]

Lightroom Workflow

I, personally, have used Lightroom for years.  I can do most of the editing I would ever want to do faster and easier in Lightroom than I […]

DIY eBook Cover

So, at this point, you should be just about done with your novel for NaNoWriMo. If you’ve kept pace, in the next 24 to 48 hours, you should be wrapping up your 50,000+ pages and breathing a giant sigh of relief. You’ll want to step away from the writing tools of your choice and take […]

Free 3D!

Well, as much as I love taking as realistic photos as possible and capturing the actual moment, I have to admit, graphic artists who start with photos and make them into more always impress me.  I’m especially impressed by those who create […]

Free Image Viewer, And More

Last week, I shared my favorite free image editor, but this week, I’ve got a bit of software that’s every bit as useful and important. But, really, it’s more than just a viewer.  This little gem can do every thing from slideshows to file format conversions to cropping.  It can even do some simple editing […]

Free Image Editing

Long-time readers of my blogs will know that I’m a cheap bastard. So, with that in mind, it shouldn’t be a surprise that I’m an advocate of free software.  I’m especially in favor of free software that can replace, or mostly replace, expensive, high-end software. As a photographer, I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with […]
