Capture One just announced that they are working on the ability to merge multiple images into HDRs and stitch images into Panoramas. This is especially important for the company since new users tend to compare Capture One Pro directly to Adobe Lightroom Classic…
Now, with the announcement that these features are ‘in development’, Capture One seeks to even the playing field in this respect. The company has been on a roll. Earlier this year, they announced a new “Export” interface that caused a little flutter among long-time users, and the Magic Selection Brush, among other improvements.Read More »Capture One Announces HDR and Panorama Features
Lightroom Classic can be slow at times. When you’re making adjustments, or when previewing images, there is often a lag before the image is previewed. This is an indication that Lightroom is not working as fast as it can be.
Many times, a simple configuration change or hardware upgrade can make all the difference.Read More »How To Make Lightroom Classic Run Faster

Affinity Photo is an application that has been spoken of quite highly in the recent past. Affinity by Serif has created a suite of apps that take on Adobe’s stalwarts, Photoshop, Illustrator, and In-Design head-on. While doing so, they’ve added in their own twists, with innovations that will make you smile, and wonder why things weren’t always done this way.
They’re also new to the field, so the apps need to prove themselves before professionals consider switching to Affinity Photo, Designer, and Publisher full-time. In the meantime, one of the important questions that need to be answered is: Do Affinity Apps support Adobe file formats like .PSD, .AI, .PDF, and .EPS which have become industry standards over the course of the last 3 decades or more? Let’s find out…Read More »How Well Does Affinity Photo Handle Adobe PSD files?
Graphic designers and photographers often have to apply a series of actions or processes to multiple images from a photo shoot. This can get tiresome and the entire reason why we have computers is so that we can avoid doing boring repetitive work, right? That’s where batch processing of images comes into the picture, and I can tell you that batch processing in Adobe Photoshop has saved me a ton of time and grief over the years.
Now that I’ve started using Affinity Photo more often, I’m happy to note that has a very feature-rich tool that allows you to batch-process multiple images in a fast and very efficient manner. In fact, I wished that some of the options that it had were available in Adobe Photoshop too! So, let’s look into how you can use the “New Batch Job…” command that’s in Affinity Photo’s ‘File’ Menu, and let’s also compare it to the tools that Adobe Photoshop has to achieve similar results.Read More »How to Use Batch Processing in Affinity Photo
My initial experience with Affinity Photo was a mixture of wonder and disappointment. Wonder, because I loved the way that they had reinvented the photo editing experience (for someone who grew up using Photoshop), and that the editing experience could be so different: in some ways better than Photoshop. But frequent software crashes spoil the user experience and are never part of the deal that one makes with their tools. Here’s how I figured out why Affinity Photo keeps crashing, and how I sorted it out.Read More »Affinity Photo Keeps Crashing Frequently? How To Stop Frequent Crashes

You pick up a Hasselblad 500C for the first time, and if you know enough about the camera itself, and its maker, you feel the weight of history in its heft.
I know what Becca Farsace is talking about in this video as she describes using the Hasselblad 907X mirrorless V System camera with the CVF II 50C digital back.
To a new user, this strange camera, with its strange form factor may be something of a mystery. However, to me, the Hasselblad 500 system is something that takes me back to my childhood.Read More »The Hasselblad 907X 50C Is A Slow Camera – It’s How It Should Be
