- [Voiceover] He, and thanks for joining yours truly, Derrick Story, while we explore Enhancing Product Photography with Aperture. Getting just the right look for your products shots is important, whether they're items to sell on eBay, documentation for insurance, or an assignment for hire, such as a brochure. The professional editing tools in Aperture can help you correct color, adjust exposure, and eliminate nagging dust spots and imperfections. A few of the techniques we'll explore include smoothing unwanted textures in fabrics and surfaces, adjusting product color for just the right look, changing backdrop hue and intensity to perfectly match the subject, highlighting a specific part of a product to direct the viewer's attention.
We'll also take a look at plug-ins for Aperture to help you expand your creativity with working with product shots. So take your studio imagery to the next level by joining me for Enhancing Product Photography with Aperture.
