Adobe Lightroom 2 review

No Comments »

Liz Masoner, About.com Guide to Photography, has recently posted her review to Adobe Lightroom 2.0

Wow! Its not often I get really excited about new software but…WOW! If you want a program to organize your photos, develop them, output print packages, create slideshows, and start your web presence with a great web-based photo show this is the software for you! Unlike Photoshop, which is created for powerful editing, Lightroom 2 is for developing your images. Lightroom 2 allows you high-precision control over the color, light, tonal ranges, and even vignetting of your images. And then it integrates with Photoshop in those cases where you need pixel-based editing (such as removing a power line).

Creating the best synth starts with the right photos. This small tutorial will help you understand how to take photos that Photosynth can use to best advantage.

Microsoft Live Labs Introduces Photosynth

No Comments »

Microsoft Live Labs introduced today Photosynth, new approach to photo sharing, to share or relive a vacation destination or explore a distant museum or landmark with your digital camera. You can use Photosynth to transform regular digital photos into a three-dimensional, 360-degree experience. You just take a few dozen of digital photos – the number depends on the size of the place or object – with overlap between each shot, from various locations and angles. Then goto Microsoft’s Photosynth Web and generate your own synth creations…

Microsoft Photosynth

REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 20 – First there was the snapshot, and then came video. Now there is Microsoft Photosynth, a new service from Microsoft Live Labs that goes far beyond how you now view, experience and share photos.

You can share or relive a vacation destination or explore a distant museum or landmark; with a digital camera and your own creativity and inspiration, you can use Photosynth to transform regular digital photos into a three-dimensional, 360-degree experience. Anybody who sees your “synth” is put right in your shoes, sharing in the same sense of exhilaration and wonder that you did at the time, with detail, clarity and scope impossible to achieve in conventional photos or videos.

May be you have already heard it, but I just want to repeat it once again.

Scott Kelby has come up with a really fun idea to push the release of his new book, Lightroom 2 for Digital Photographers. On Saturday, August 23rd, there will be PhotoWalks around the world. These are absolutely free events hosted by volunteer leaders in cities around the world.

Each PhotoWalk will last about 2 hours and end up somewhere to eat (or drink). This is a great opportunity to meet other photographers of all levels in your area. You do have to sign up in advance as participation is limited to 50 people at each location.
