TAKING PICKTORIAL RAW PROCESS PROGRAM FURTHER WITH EXTERNAL EDITORS

Picktorial, as so many of you now know is my favorite raw processor especially for my Fuji X raw files on my Macintosh computers.

Picktorial as a stand alone program has incredible power but like other programs also has the ability to use great plug in apps like those from Google Nik.

Watch this video to see just how easy it is to use in programs of your choice such as Lightroom, Photoshop, On1, and so many others.  By simply accessing the software you can make changes, save changes which automatically go right back into Picktorial as a separate and new version of your file.

 

PICKTORIAL SOFTWARE FOR PROCESSING RAW and ALL IMAGES ON A MAC

PICKTORIAL SOFTWARE FOR PROCESSING RAW and ALL IMAGES ON A MAC IS ONE OF THE POST POWERFUL RAW PROCESSORS TO DATE BUT IT IS ALSO JUST EXTREMELY SIMPLE TO LEARN AND USE.

If  you are a Fuji X shooter then you will finally realize just how great your images can look.  No more Adobe Lightroom artifacts and no more excuses about getting to the perfect post processed image.

I shot all of these images using the Fuji X Pro 2 and 50mm 2.0 Fuji Lens. I processed the images below with Picktorial 3.0 xxx

The software, Picktorial is one that I have been working with for several months and have tested it against Adobe Lightroom, Phase One Capture One, On1 Photo Raw, and MacPhun Luminar.

It has proven to be the best of the best.  First, it is simple to use. Second, it has more workable powerful tools than any of the others in just the right combination to make your images scream of the screen or paper.  Third, the company’s ability to respond virtually instantaneously to suggestions is unheard of in the software industry in my own personal experience.

It is in my opinion the software that Fuji X users have been looking for that resolves the sharpening issue of leaves in trees and similar subjects that other software simply smears.

You have in hand universal adjustments for everything but even more important is a set of brushes and gradients for locally adjusting pretty much everything and anywhere in an image.

It has to be the best software I have used in years.

You can get a trial version that will undoubtedly lead to you purchasing this Mac Only program.

Picktorial 3.0

I do not have a financial or personal relationship with Pictorial or the founders of Pictorial.  I have paid for my software, I use the software and love the software.  I am not obligated in any way, shape or form to the company and they are not obligated to me.  If I found that the their product was not one that performs then I would not be writing about it or posting other bloggers opinions.

D I S C L O S U R E -In case you needed to know

I have been writing and posting articles about a software product for the Mac which has been making a lot of old Apple Aperture users quite happy because it can directly read your old Aperture libraries.

But because I have been posting so much about this young, startup, brilliant company residing in Tel Aviv, Israel, I am concerned that I had a hidden agenda for supporting this company and their product.

So here it is folks.  I work with several different software products all of which are alternatives to Adobe products.  Picktorial, On1 Photo Raw and MacPhun Luminar.  They all have their sweet spots and they all have had one time or another, bugs.  Picktorial is the one company that has been highly responsive to the needs of photographers and has continued to refine the product on a constant basis.  Other companies are polite, but slow to fix things and worse cannot admit to user issues.  The shining star has been Pictorial.

So why have I published so many articles, mine and others about Pictorial?

First off I love young, start-up companies who come to market with a product that works and continues to get better and better.  When it comes to software I like a product that does not get in my way and simply produces the results I expect in a simple and easy to use manner.  I also appreciate the fact that I am able to give these young folks input and have them listen and do their utmost best to implement serious functions and their version 3.0 is proof enough.

I do not have a financial relationship with Pictorial or the founders of Pictorial.  I have paid for my software, I use the software and love the software.  I am not obligated in any way, shape or form to the company and they are not obligated to me.  If I found that the their product was not one that performs then I would not be writing about it or posting other bloggers opinions.

That’s it. 🙂  Try their software.  Click here

This article posted on PetaPixel is going to do just that for you.

How important is exposure in photography? What are the components of exposure? What is the “Exposure Triangle”? These are the questions I will attempt to a
