Macphun Creative Kit

While on the Mac subject (from yesterday :)), one more thing for Mac users. If you are looking for a set of tools to enhance your photography, you may try out the Creative Kit from Macphun. As the name says, it’s available for Mac only. You can look at this kit as an alternative to offerings from Nik (Google) or Topaz, as it give its own way to accomplish some of the same results, but also different ones.

I’m working on a bigger article about these applications, but since that can take a little time, you might miss on quite a great offer from them right now. In the preparation for an upcoming big update, they are offering a pre-order for the whole Creative kit (Snapheal Pro, Noiseless Pro, Tonality Pro, Focus Pro, Intensify Pro, FX photo Studio Pro) with a huge 80% discount (thats 89usd instead of 455usd, or 99euro instead of 504euro), and you even get the current versions right away.

So if you think that this could be interesting for you, head over to the Macphun site, for more info, to try out their trial version or to order the Creative kit.

This shot came out a bit busier than I thought it will be. With all the lights and all their reflection, there is so much detail here, that it’s a bit hard to decide what to look at first. But thats one of the reasons HDR photos look mostly better when seen quite big, so one can take all the detail in :)

This is a HDR from 3 exposures, created in Oloneo PHotoengine, finished in Photoshop.
