Recently I was asked what programs would be good for someone with no history in photography editing but they could learn to use them to edit photos quite easily. I decided to answer that question with a short video that takes a quick look at what I recommend and why.
The two programs I strongly recommend for beginners are these:
Platform software and general editing
- Adobe Lightroom 5- is just US $149, or you could upgrade for $79.00.
A Creative Filter Program, easy to use and comes with everything bar the kitchen sink
- Perfect Effects 4– From OnOne and has a huge variety of Filters.
You can always purchase Perfect Effects 4 in the OnOne Photo Suite 7 which is a combination of OnOne’s best photography programs all rolled into one neat bunch. I personally have the suite and it can come in handy when you find you need to enlarge a photo or want to use a black and white editing program.
The Lightroom 5 Presets I recommend in the video
- 75 Lightroom presets from Trey Ratcliff
