Most photographers would prefer to be out shooting, rather than sitting behind a computer editing their images. And when you have a large number of files to process, the task often feels like watching paint dry.

So, you’ve shot a portrait and it looks…ok. Good but not great and certainly not at the level of a professional image you might see in a magazine.

While we're not, generally, fans of "quick fixes" on images in Photoshop – why not get it right when you shoot it? – there's no shame in using Adobe's landmark image editor to make a boring photo look better. And in the below video from Photoshop maestro Serge Ramelli, he shows you how to do just that.

A colorful dragonfly alighted on a tree branch adjacent to the patio, so I went inside to grab my Nikon D300 and attached a Tamron 70-300mm lens. With strong backlighting, flash fill was mandatory, so I added an SB-900 speedlight to the mix.

CES is not a big imaging software show as evidenced by the short list of new products, though we did find a new camera profiling tool, updated monitor calibration tools, an old favorite Raw converter brought back to life under a new name, and software for editing on the fly and sharing photos.

 

ArcSoft introduced a Mac version of Perfect365. This software uses advanced facial recognition technology for one-click portrait touch-ups, letting you effortlessly adjust up to 21 individual facial features. Perfect365 allows you to add creative effects such as eye shadows, blushes, lipsticks, colored contact lenses, under-eye circle removal, and blemish removal. The software is available as a free download (www.perfect365.com) or in a premium edition ($39).

Using filters to directly capture infrared images has never been easier, but not all digital cameras have this ability and some have only a limited capability. If your camera doesn’t work with IR filters and your budget doesn’t permit converting your SLR for infrared-only capture, maybe it’s time to consider converting some of your existing RGB images into an IR “look” using emulation software.

Software programs for imaging can be simple or complex. The complex ones offer a steep learning curve and allow you to refine images to your heart’s content. Simple programs, although complex under the hood, allow you to make quick choices to create a wide variety of looks. And while they can be used for “instant” art, they also allow for nuances that multiply your options a thousand fold, using sliders that modify each look from the menu. One such “simple” program is Alien Skin’s Snap Art 3 (www.alienskin.com, $199 or $99 for an upgrade from previous versions). This is a plug-in and a standalone program, which means it works within the architecture of Adobe’s Photoshop, Lightroom and Elements as well as other image processing programs so you can create Layers from the work that can be further refined (leading to many more options) or within Snap Art 3 alone.
