August 29, 2015

It’s a funny thing about me; if I see a damaged picture, sometimes I just really, really want to fix it. It’s almost like my fingers start tingling for the Wacom pen so I can get started. It doesn’t happen every, single time, but when it does good things usually happen. So, I decided to take a little time and fix one of them… About 6 (working) hours later, I was done with the first one I picked. It wasn’t one of the worst, but it sort of spoke to me. [More]

Lightroom and Photoshop – Smart Editing

July 8, 2014

Lightroom and Photoshop are made to work together, and there is more than one way to move files between them. In this video, we will examine the workflow in which a raw file in Lightroom is sent over to Photoshop as a Smart Object. [More]

So I suppose you could say that, no, photo restoration cannot be done in ACR, but tonal recovery most certainly can! [More]

Your Phone Camera Photos Suck (Blur Removal Software Review)

February 13, 2013

No matter how good the settings on your phones camera are, they probably aren’t going to help out of focus or blurry images. You might try to take multiple shots of whatever you’re photographing, and hope at least one comes out halfway decent – that’s usually my main M.O., but if you are stuck with blurry or out of focus images, what can you do?
