A few Software bits and Pieces
There’s been a few software related announcements recently that I haven’t had time to cover as I have been traveling recently. Some of these are also things I wouldn’t normally be interested in so I’m just going to cover them quickly, and rather than go through them all individually, I thought that I wold cover them here in a quick roundup post.
The people behind Picktorial announced a new version of their software with improved asset management features. I have been trying to review this, but I can’t seem to get it to work properly on my old mac pro, and I haven’t had the time to try it properly on my newer laptop. If you’re interested in this software, there are details of what’s new on the company’s website here.
Skylum Air Magic
Skylum, the makers of Luminar, have launched a new piece of software called “Air Magic” aimed at drone photography. Based on the company’s AI technology, it is an automatic enhancement tool aimed at aerial photos. I don’t have a drone, or am particularly interested in aerial photos, so it’s not something that I’m interested in personally, but if you are interested, it’s due for release shortly, and you can find out more here.
Cinematic Looks for Luminar and Lightroom
Speaking of Skylum, the company has partnered with Los Angeles–based commercial photographer Ilya Nodia, to create a set of Hollywood-inspired looks — suitable for both Luminar and Lightroom — based on 12 outstanding movies. 4 of these are available for free. You can find out more details here (I will try and review these in the near future!)
