Quick Lux now available for Lightroom

Just a quick heads up to let you know that the Lightroom version of Quick Lux is now available. It’s taken a while to port it but it’s finally finished. Just like Film Candy it’s not exactly the same as the Aperture version as there are too many differences in both Applications. It’s a lot more comprehensive though and there’s lots of good stuff in there.…

36 Hours in Paris – A New Photography e-book by yours truly!

Ok, I know this isn’t directly Aperture related, but anyway … (I actually did use Aperture while I was there for the initial sorting and cataloguing of the images)

Just before Christmas I got to spend a little time in Paris and I used that time to get some travel shots of the city. I’ve been wanting to start writing more about my travels and turn my travel photography and experiences into books, and so I thought that this was a good opportunity!…

One of the limitations was that it would only work for Photoshop CC. Well, after considerable head scratching and googling along with some substantial trial and error I finally found the way around the Applescript bug that prevented it from working.…

How to quickly find your Photo Stream Projects

If you use Aperture to manage your Photo stream photos from your iPhone, one of the things that you may find frustrating is that Aperture litters your Library with projects every time a new month comes around.

A Workflow for sending Raw files to Photoshop from Aperture

I’m pretty excited about this, so stay with me, as this is a bit technical. If you work with Photoshop and Aperture regularly you already know that when you edit a file in Photoshop from Aperture using the “edit in…” command, you’re sending a flattened Tiff or PSD file. One of the things that I get asked over and over again is if there is a way to send the Raw file instead, so you can use Camera Raw to make adjustments.…
