Sooo…. since taking my workload into Apple’s latest version of Aperture, I’ve become a total lover of presets. I’ve created two of my own, and have a couple dozen others as well. It’s rare that I don’t do any further tweeking after applying a preset – but they do go a fair distance in cutting down my editing workload.
Haven’t checked out Aperture 3 yet? Apple is offering a free one month trial – so it’s a good time to look into it. It’s a great tool for amateur photophiles too, so don’t think that just because you aren’t a professional it’s not worth investing in a good processing tool. Learning how to properly edit your photographs can turn a good capture into a great one. And a good photo editing program is a MUST HAVE for anyone who’s involved in scrapbooking. It’s the ideal way to provide those special touches that can really punch your work up a notch (or even two or three). 🙂 So check it out: http://www.apple.com/ca/aperture/
Seriously, this is one program that should make it into your bag of tricks. 😉
Now… since I’ve been toying with presets I have to ask… Each photo shoot I edit seems to inspire a new one. So it won’t be long until I have enough of them to launch my own preset collection. Would ya’ll be interested in the TD Photography preset collection?
