The NIK Photoshop plugin collection’s been a staple in my system for many years. It’s sharpening algorithm, it’s controls have always had a strong place along with all my other plugins, and I’ve made great use of it throughout the years.

A few years ago, Google bought it, and made it FREE! That was great, and they even updated the software a few times. But, on the Mac, they stopped updating past OSX 10.10 Yosemite, on Windows, they stopped updating past Windows 8, and for Photoshop, their last compatible version is with Photoshop 2015.

THANKS GOOGLE, for buying something, ensuring it’s not profitable for you, and leaving us in the lurch…

OR DID THEY? Thank goodness for One1. They’re releasing the version Photo Raw 2017.5 in just a few days. MacPhun is not only excellent on the Mac, but they’re finishing up their first BETA of their Luminar and Aurora HDR software for Windows machine. Both of these have options very much like those offered in NIK, and they’re committed to continuing their development for years to come!

By the way – my FAVORITE software for Up-Rezzing images (when necessary) used to be Genuine Fractals – which is now On1 Perfect Resize – part of their Photo Raw software!

To check these apps out – take a look here:
On1 Photo RAW – and check out their On1 software, and On1PLUS – an amazing and unique training center for the use of On1 software

MacPhun Software – and check out their current deal with Plotagraph Pro! Don’t forget to use coupon code SGANS_DISC on checkout, if you choose to buy the software.

I’m finally about to upgrade to Sierra… Bye Bye, NIK….

For some time, you’ve been seeing me post about excellent deals on MacPhun’s AuroraHDR 2017 software.

Well, I thought it might be nice if you got a chance to see some of the ease, power and flexibility of the program in a simple demo. Please note – this demo is based on a single image – I don’t have a camera capable of auto-bracketing (taking multiple exposures of a single shot). Here, you’ll see how we can use a preset, AND adjust that preset, and I’ve chosen a realistic look for the final image. In the future, I’ll demonstrate how we can make some more “artistically interpretive” choices, but this, I think, is a good overview.

To get AuroraHDR 2017 plus tutorials and bonuses for a 55% discount, please visit this link prior to April 1st, 2017.

This month’s Aurora HDR 2017 + Trey Ratcliff training offer is still live but there are only a couple days left to claim it.

Aurora HDR 2017 gives you tremendous control, either manually, or via preset for all your HDR photo needs – from realistic lighting improvements to full-on artistic image interpretations. The most amazing thing is, you don’t even need an HDR capable camera with bracketing capabilities. The enhancements that can be done with a singe image – even a smartphone image, is amazing and beautiful. Just take a look at their intro software page for an example of what can be accomplished with a click or just your own enhancements (slide the slider on their intro image).

The offer ends Saturday, April 1st for the package of Aurora HDR 2017 software and Trey Ratcliff’s Complete HDR Tutorial for a 55% discount – that’s $89 for this software that will change the way you work with images. Take your images from “nice” to “I must put that on the wall” beautiful!

For an initial purchase of $89, or Upgrade pricing starting at $49 for users of Aurora HDR, and is $69 for Aurora HDR Pro users, you get:

  • Aurora HDR 2017, The world’s most advanced HDR photo editor for Mac.
  • Trey Ratcliff’s Compete HDR Tutorial 3.0: Perfect for everyone who wants to learn to shoot HDR images from beginners to advanced users.
  • 6+ Hours of instruction
  • Trey’s RAW image files

The folks at MacPhun don’t rest for a minute! Luminar’s only been out for a short time, but as of tomorrow (December 16th), there’s going to be a great update with new features like Batch Processing, a Dehaze filter and a new Golden Hour filter for your photos. All the new stuff is listed on MacPhun’s Blog.
