Adobe Lightroom 5 – five favourite video tutorials

Despite the recent controversy regarding its move to Creative Cloud (and CC’s pricing model), Adobe still produces a fantastic, stand-alone piece of software for photographers, called Lightroom. It’s also part of the Creative Cloud, which is subscription-based, but the standalone-product is more than sufficient for most photographers and also – [...]

Heeeeeeeere’s FLICKR!

In a way I feel like posting this now is a bit pointless as it’s probably been discussed a million times everywhere.  And perhaps your conclusions are similar. But here it is. Flickr is likely to become cool again. There, I said it. OK, it’s clearly been helped by the [...]
