The best photo editing apps for your smartphone

Who hasn’t experienced this situation before? You’re at some place taking a picture of the perfect moment. Of course, you want to share the snapshot right away.

Lightroom tips and tricks

Hey guys, If you enjoy taking pictures a lot and work with your camera intensively, there’ll be no way around image editing sooner or later. Maybe, as you play around with colors, brightness and contrasts, you will discover one more passion – at least that’s what happened to me. 😉 While editing you get the ...

Are Digital Artists the new stars in photography?

Have you ever thought about your opinion on photo editing? I’m not talking about the kind of post-editing that’s supposed to make models even more flawless by retouching half of their legs and adding quite a bit to their upper part of the body.  No, I’m referring to the photo editing that makes sceneries, parts ...

Sigma sd Quattro RAW development: what’s better, SPP or Lightroom?

But what can you expect if you shoot DNGs with your sd Quattro and subsequently develop them in Lightroom? Is it silly to expect an equivalent output ...

Lars van den Brink and his hidden object images

I hardly know anybody who wasn’t enthusiastically looking for Walter as a kid. Children (and adults like me ;)) all over the world are fans of the red- and white-striped, dressed up character with the typical bobble cap and the black glasses. Staring for several minutes at one and the same image and still discovering ...

Comparing the Sigma Photo Pro 6.3 vs. 6.3.2

I read in the dpreview forum that even pictures which were taken with older firmware-versions, will benefit from the more accurate automatic white balance and the more realistic colour rendering of Sigma Photo Pro 6.3.2. To see for myself, I developed six pictures that I took with my DP2 Quattro with SPP 6.3 and 6.3.2. ...
