In this post I am showing you some before and after shots.
I have been using Adobe Lightroom,almost exclusively for my photo editing.This is a very good program and gives a lot of flexibility.
Now,If I was a professional,I could take the photos even further in Lightroom,but I am not at that level.
Recently Steve made me aware of a fairly new program for photo editing.
I could try it for two weeks but after that needed to buy it.
Luminar from Macphun is an easy to use program, in fact it's so easy that even I can get amazing results with just a few clicks.
So here are two sets of pictures, which I have recently taken.
The first picture is edited in Lightroom.I should say that I start out with a RAW file
I thought this looked quite good.
Then I took that same photo into Luminar and with a couple of clicks I got this result.The color is more vibrant and the picture looks so much better.
I love getting sunset pictures and here is one, again edited in Lightroom and looks OK.
Once again,I took it into Luminar and this is what I ended up with. I am sure that in the right hands, the same results could have been achieved in Lightroom,but for an amateur like me, Luminar is much easier to use.
I have not been asked to make this post, nor am I endorsing one or the other product.
I am just sharing what I have experienced, as a friend shares with a friend.
I am always interested in what kind of editing program others use and so I thought you might like to know what I'm doing.
Whether you use any editing program or not, the important part is that you get out there and capture the beauty God has created all around us.
