Existing Content

Content covers image capture, processing, printing, as well as, art, color theory, human vision, optical illusions, image organization and more. Find answers to all of your questions including material found nowhere else.

Craftsmanship, composition and creativity topics, as they apply to photography, are covered completely and are up to date.

Coming Attractions

1. Little regarding the basics of photography has changed since the site began in 2009, but the same isn’t true of image processing. Processing is well covered in the existing content, but needs to be bought up to date.

2. Also, although  the existing material is complete, several thousand five-hundred word posts is not the best presentation format. Enter eBooks & Videos.

Plans

1. Image Processing – How-to’s for Affinity Photo (AP) and AP compatible plugins (e.g. Nik & Topaz)  are my future focus. Adobe “rentals”  are covered in the existing content, but nothing new will be added.

2. eBooks & Videos – Posts covering selected topics, will be gathered into eBooks and/or videos. As an example, see the Affinity User Guide eBook in the flip box below.
