Editing Software is my Friend

Editing software is very useful, don't you agree?. Some people can do away with editing software and they use their cameras and studio tools to do all the special effects. I however, still depend on editing software for certain reasons (shy). Take for example, look at my portraiture below. In order to give a painted-like look, I edited these photos. What do you think.

Special thanks to Jennifer and Siti for agreeing to be my model.

NEW GEAR

Oh I am so excited. I wish this model come earlier than my D60. It is reasonably cheap (RM2228) and yet it performs better than D60. It is said that it has bigger LCD monitor (3 inch) and have excellent noise reduction at high ISO. To all Nikon lovers out there...would you consider this?

CalVB > You should join. No regret.

Judy > Did I? Sorry to hear that. I'm sure you shoot good photos.

Eynda > Combination of Photoshop CS4 and photoscape.

AiShiang > I guess so.

PEte > I'm sure you will get one.

LadyViral > Hahaha did not want to overdo it. Wanted to mantain the original look. Go and get one.

Norris > depends on many factors bro. Such as the material, lense, range etc. Susah mok madah. Can opt for Sigma or tamron.

AhLost > Hahaha...it all depend on individual.

Rudy > You are right. But i am planning for D90. What do you think?

Ms Tikot said...

Kmk x pernah pakei photoshop. Selalu pakei photoscape jak. Klk coba main ngan photoshop ;-)

Mei Teng said...

What do you mean by painted look? I don't think my editing software has this option.

Which editing software are you using?

Life Ramblings said...

what a cool gadget and i'd love to own one.

Willie said...

Faizal > ada baca review kamera ya dalam digital camera magazine. Nang bagus komen sidak. Sidak madah kamera ya boleh dianggap sebagai average DSLR. Surf u internet.

MsTikot > Pelbagaikanlah software. MEsti best.

IvyMetaga > Ku gik nunggu kawu gik.

MeiTeng > Editing software does not have it. You just have to blend and keep on trying all the functions. It's a combination of CS4 and photoscape.

LifeRamblings > I'm sure you will.
