Great Promotions from Macphun!

Just learned about two great promotions from Macphun Software!


Aurora HDR is powerful, easy-to-use HDR software for Mac users. You’ll want to check out this promotion that includes lots of free bonuses!


Macphun is also running a huge promotion on their Creative Kit XXL. This is a bundle of amazing tools that includes great editing software, eBooks, textures and lots more. If sold separately this would cost $2,000. The special bundle price is now $129. Check it out!


Color Camera Club of Westchester (CCCW)

Thanks to CCCW for an enjoyable evening of conversation!

I was pleased to be invited to CCCW to present a talk and demonstration on the use of textures in fine art photography.

The talk included a short powerpoint on post-processing and several images were taken through workflows that included Lightroom, Photoshop, and plugins from On1 and Topaz.

Some good offers and more information on the tools can be found here:

On1 Software

Topaz Labs

On1 Photo 10

On1 (formerly OnOne Software) has released version 10 of its very popular set of software tools.  The tools work as a standalone product and/or as plugins for Photoshop, Lightroom, and other popular software programs that enthusiast and professional photographers use every day.

I’ve been using their products for many years, and this particular version is my favorite. The included Resize tool is in my opinion, worth the very reasonable price of the whole suite of products.  If you already have previous versions, I think you’ll find the upgrade price to be well worth it.

Check it out by clicking this link.  There are free trials and you might even find a free product, when offered.

Topaz Price Reduction

I use several Topaz products in my post-processing workflow to create special effects, make black and white images, and for sharpening, noise reduction and much more.  I just learned, and want to pass on the information, about a special “Black Friday” discount of 50% on a suite of their products!  If you are interested in checking it out, click here.  The individual products are great, and the discount on the full suite is amazing (and for a limited time)!

If you decide to get the discount (which applies to the full suite only), make sure you click on PRODUCTS in the menu at the top of the page and enter the discount code of BLACKFRIDAY2015 in the shopping cart to see 50% off the regular price.
