Expand Apple's Photos for Mac OS X software with editing extensions that add new photo-enhancement capabilities.
Hi, I'm Derrick Story, professional photographer, writer and publisher of The Digital Story. And welcome to this course on enhancing your images with Photos' editing extensions. How do you improve upon the original? By encouraging others to contribute. And that's what Apple has done with Photos, by opening it up to third party editing extensions. During out time together, I'll show you how you can find, download and use third party imaging software to work on specific areas of your photographs.
Some of the topics I cover include: applying interesting color effects to add visual interest to your images, converting your pictures to black and white and applying effects on specific areas, adding a gradient screen to the composition, using sophisticated cloning and erasing tools, improving portraits with skin smoothing and teeth whitening and integrating your favorite image editor, such as Photoshop, with the Photos' work flow.
Photos is evolving into an exciting platform for editing and sharing pictures. These extensions bring much welcome power to a modern, friendly, photo management app for Mac users. So please join me as we explore this software and use it to improve our pictures.
In this course, photographer, author, and educator Derrick Story demonstrates his favorite editing extensions for performing local adjustments. These tools round out what already exists in Photos, providing the photographer with a complete image editing toolbox. Step-by-step, he selects an image from the library, explains how he wants to change it, and then chooses the appropriate editing extension to complete the job.
