Photo AI is the newest Topaz plug-in, and it combines sharpening, noise reduction, and upscaling features in a single application that uses AI-based technology to deliver impressive results. In this presentation, I discuss the software and several use cases for how to incorporate it into your own photography workflow.
Topaz Photo AI is part of the Topaz Image Quality Bundle, which is available here.
This week, we’re discussing image sharpening. If you’re not sharpening your images, you’re probably not getting the best quality out of your files. In-camera sharpening can be particularly poor, and often leads to more noticeable noise. We’ll walk you through the steps we use to sharpen (and apply noise reduction) and the tools we use to do it.
This week, we’re discussing some of the (somewhat) hidden features in the iPhone camera app, including portrait mode and the new RAW capture feature available in the iPhone 12/13 Pro models. We’ve found ourselves re-thinking our photo workflow for iPhone photos in ways that we didn’t think possible!
Adobe’s DNG “digital negative” raw format was developed as an open standard over 20 years ago. What originally started out as an alternative raw format 20 years ago has instead morphed into something quite different, but incredibly useful. This week, we discuss the pros and cons of DNG files and how we use them in our own photographic workflows.
This weekend, get ready for a total lunar eclipse! The eclipse takes place the night of May 15th and ends early in the morning on May 16th. Most readers in North America will be able to see a total or partial eclipse.
If you want to photograph the total lunar eclipse, you’ll want to be prepared. Read my article How to Photograph a Lunar Eclipse for all the tricks you’ll need to capture this celestial event, including lenses and camera settings.
