Lightroom CC 1.1 is out, with tone curves, split toning, a full screen view, and a new Adobe Sensei-based Auto feature.

RAW Power for iOS Hands-On

RAW Power takes over from where Apple Photos leaves off when editing raw images. I look at the new iOS version for DPReview.

Astropad Studio Review at Macworld

I’ve always looked curiously at photographers who use Wacom digitizer tablets to assist in editing their photos. Does it really help? More important, is it worth paying several hundred more dollars? I already have a perfectly good tablet: the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. At Macworld today, I review Astropad Studio, an app for both ...

Affinity Photo for iPad Review

As someone who’s been using the iPad for editing and working with photos since the very beginning, even I was surprised by how capable Affinity Photo for iPad is.

After writing the review of Lightroom CC for Macworld ...

We don’t often see lightning here, so I was thrilled to sit in my living room with all the windows open and watch the display. And then I realized I should try to take ...

Macworld Reviews iMovie 10

Serenity Caldwell reviewed the new iMovie 10 for Macworld: iMovie 10 review: a lot to like, a few quibbles. As a longtime iMovie user (and author of several books and articles about it), here’s one line that particularly stood out: The app’s fast enough now that it doesn’t need you to downscale your HD clips ...

Add a timestamp in iMovie

My latest Macworld Create column looks at a relatively simple feature: adding a timestamp to your footage. It’s much better than the old days when cameras would burn the date and time directly onto your footage (and the typography is much better now). I also reveal how to fix footage that has the wrong date ...
