“The creation of a photograph rarely stops when you press the shutter. While a great photographer needs the skills to capture brilliant pictures with their camera, they often need to polish their in-camera creations during post-production. With film, it used to be that any necessary edits and enhancements were done in the darkroom. Now, with digital, it’s done on a computer, usually accompanied by an Adobe editing software. Regardless of the type of digital camera you use, once you have your images on your PC or Mac, Lightroom and Photoshop allow you to organise, enhance and manipulate to your heart’s content. Whether using Adobe’s beginner-focused Elements or its powerhouse software, Photoshop, there are countless ways to improve or transform your photographs. Add to these the intuitive workflow system of Lightroom,…

photoshop. the digital photographers’ choice!

PHOTOGRAPHY IS ABOUT creativity, always has been. Since its inception, photographers haven’t simply been content to document their surroundings but have sought to enhance, embellish, beautify and distort their imagery, be it via the darkroom or with in-camera techniques. Adobe Photoshop, Elements and Lightroom are just tools in the creative arsenal, though they happen to be damn good ones – the best possible. Everything that was done in the film darkroom can be recreated in these softwares, and far more besides. Images that are now appearing in this digital age are really pushing the boundaries of the imagination. So if you haven’t already jumped on the Adobe bandwagon, it’s really time to take that leap. You’re missing out on the chance to explore your creative self. Even if your ambitions…

which adobe editing software is right for you?

LIGHTROOM, ELEMENTS OR Photoshop Creative Cloud (CC)? it’s a question many photographers ask themselves, especially now the full version of Photoshop is more affordable than ever thanks to a monthly subscription. many who once recoiled at the hefty price might be tempted to give it a go, but is it the right choice for you when compared to lightroom or the even more affordable Elements 14? that’s what we aim to help you decide here. Photoshop and digital photography are the perfect pair to the point that the noun ‘Photoshopped’ has become synonymous with most types of photo editing. however, while professional image quality is expected with Photoshop CC, the extensive tools in lightroom and even Photoshop Elements may be more than adequate depending on your budget and level of skill.…

photoshop elements 14

Buy for: £79.10 Upgrade for: £64.81 Bestfor:Newphotographersandthosewithlimited editingskillsorbasicambitionsfortheirediting “CAPTURE THE MOMENT now. perfect the photo later’: it’s adobe’s sell for the latest version of elements and it’s suitably fitting given it’s designed for photographers who prefer auto over manual mode, or find their skills in their infancy. In essence, elements is a stripped-down version of photoshop CC that’s much easier to use but is still loaded with easy-to-use features, such as one-click Quick editing options as well as Guided and expert platforms for when you progress in skill. the Guided interface is ideal for new amateur photographers, while the expert mode looks and functions similar to photoshop CC, making it perfect for budgetconscious Weekend photo Warriors. It’s the cheapest option by far – you can own elements for the same cost of renting photoshop…

You can quickly organise your entire library of photos, efficiently make common global edits and even make selective tweaks using the Adjustment Brush – frankly, there’s very little you cannot do, so why do you even need Photoshop CC? if your shots need no significant changes, well, you don’t – Photoshop is for when you want…
