Abba Shapiro introduces Perfect Photo Suite, eight powerful modules that allow you to enhance photos, add effects, swap backgrounds, retouch portraits, and convert color photos to evocative black-and-white images. Perfect Photo Suite can be used as both a standalone application and integrated with Aperture, Lightroom, and Photoshop. Abba covers both workflows, and delivers three different adjustment challenges, which help you test your skills.
This is an introductory course produced by RHED Pixel to help both beginner and seasoned photographers quickly realize the benefits of Perfect Photo Suite 8. We are honored to host this training in our library.
Now you may be asking yourself, when should I use Perfect Photo Suite and when should I use my native applications, such as Photoshop or Aperture or Lightroom. You know, you kind of have to make that call as you go. But in general, if I'm doing anything that might have graphics or text or where I want to be able to fix chromatic aberration, or do any kind of a lens correction, I may do that in Photoshop or Lightroom or Aperture. But when I actually want to start doing creative things be able to do things quickly, I'll step into Perfect Photo Suite.
It's really nice to be able to do masking very easily. I love the ability to be able to have the flexibility of doing really complex black and white and leveraging the ability to, you know, focus on one color and put vignettes on it, and get a real feel or a vibe for like a 1940's Hollywood look or a 1900's or 1800's black and white or antique type of image. So the best way to look at it is, what's the best tool for the job, and what are you trying to achieve, and then decide whether you need to step out of your native application into Perfect Photo Suite.
Or on the flip side, whether you can stay completely in Perfect Photo Suite, never having touched Light Room, Photoshop, or Aperture.
