When one of the worlds fastest growing software giants ask's you to create an e-book from scratch you sit up and pay attention. Then you panic, and then you roll up your sleeves and get to work.
As passionate photographers Lisa and I work hard to capture and share our best images. Images, that are powerful, sharp and able to convey the beauty and texture of what we see around the world.
For years, like others, my go-to image editor was Adobe's Photoshop, but in the last few years that has been changing as I've dug into the power of programs like SKYLUM's AURORA HDR and more recently LUMINAR 2018.
It's worth mentioning that LUMINAR has just been announced as Apple's app of the year for 2017. When you think about the tens of thousands of new apps and programs that were released in 2017, that's one hell of an achievement and an impressive accolade!
When SKYLUM'S Vice President reach out and asked if I'd create an epic e-book to inspire photographers around the world, I was genuinely shocked but equally excited to be given this rare opportunity to reach millions of photographers and share some of our favourite locations.
The brief for the book was simple; To share twelve stunning, but little known epic locations that should be on every photographers bucket list.
The book is finsihed and available to you as a FREE E-book
when you purchase LUMINAR 2018
along with a special December deal.
I worked really hard to pack the book not only with beautiful images but with image info, camera settins for each of the photos, along with pro tips and ideas to help and inspire yoru own photography. The book was a labour of love but I'm proud and excited with the results and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did creatign it for you.
LUMINAR 2018 offers everything a modern photographer needs for photo editing, including new filters powered by artificial intelligence, major speed improvements, a dedicated RAW develop module and a forthcoming in 2018; digital asset management platform.
Users will also benefit from the new intelligent Sun Rays filter, LUT support, and real-time noise removal. With work-spaces that match different styles of editing, LUMINAR adapts to deliver a complete experience that avoids clutter and complexity.
LUMINAR 2018 has been re-built from the ground up for dramatic performance boosts. Existing filters deliver richer colors and depth in less time. A brand new streamlined user interface speeds up working with presets, filters, and masks. With the full support of pro options like layers, masks, and blending modes, complex repairs and photo composites can be easily accomplished.
It’s intuitive, simple to learn, powerful and best of all, it’s inexpensive. Most of my editing work today for both corporate clients and magazines is done using LUMINAR. I get the same results in 5 minutes that used to take me half and hour with Photoshop. The program ships with an impressive range of pre-set filters and is child’s play to learn.
You get my FREE E-book, along with a cracking deal with SKYLUM'S December deal. Which means LUMINAR 2018 is only $69 (usual price $99). Best of all the program is them yours and there are no monthly fee's, unlike Adobe's Photoshop (currently $18 per month)
LUMINAR 2018 is my go-to photo editor and I know you're going to love it. SO, buy a copy or take advantage of their free trial, and try before you buy. Either way have fun and I hope you enjoy the book. I'd love to hear your comments and feedback.
