Academy and Emmy Award-winning software developer Boris FX is dipping its toes in the world of still photography with “Optics”: a new standalone application and plugin suite that brings some of the company’s feature film visual effects to the world of photo editing.

Optics is described as “the definitive digital toolbox for photos,” but what it offers is maybe better described as a comprehensive mishmash of filters, presets, lighting effects and lens flares… with some masking technology thrown in for good measure. It’s honestly hard to tell what Optics is primarily meant to do, because it does so much.

Capture One has jumped into the preset game with the release of the Beyond Collection: two new ‘style packs’ that allow you to apply “the feel and character” of various film and black & white “looks” to your photography, with some customization options throw in for good measure.

The style packs aren’t technically “presets,” hence the name Beyond. What sets them apart is the fact that each “style” comes with 3 options for contrast and 8 options for “authentic film grain” so that you can further tailor the look of each style to the photo you’re editing. Furthermore, each

Moments ago, Ted Forbes over at The Art of Photography uploaded a video that you probably saw coming: a deep-dive on the brand new menu system that Sony debuted with the Sony a7S III. If you’re wondering how the menus have changed, and what Sony did (and didn’t) address, this is a great resource.

Putting so much emphasis on a UX redesign might seem silly, but the dated and confusing menu system on all of the Sony a7 and a9 cameras so far has been a huge source of frustration for users and bad PR for Sony. Even after all

If you’re new to photo printing, the most recent video from Sid at StyleMyPic should be required watching. In it, he covers what it means for a color in Photoshop to be “out of gamut,” and how to use Photoshop’s Proof Colors and Gamut Warning views to get your prints looking just right.

As any experienced photographer will tell you, the brightest and most saturated colors available to you on a monitor are considered “out of gamut” for the standard CMYK color space used for printing; in other words: the printer can’t create those colors and trying to print them
