Macphun Creative Kit 2016
6 powerful photography apps and over 500 creative tools inside a single, easy-to-use pack. Creative Kit elevates your photo editing experience and helps achieve fantastic results faster than ever before.
Macphun’s Creative Kit is a super-impressive entry into the bundled photo editing app arena, rivaling packages like On1 Photo 10,the Google Nik Collection, and Topaz Labs’ vast collection. Its flexibility, ample supply of presets, and excellent performance help a wide range of photographers—spanning amateur to pro—get quick results.
Why purchase a suite? Because chances are that over time, you’ll need all of the included utilities, and the deep discount available for the package makes it a good investment for use as either standalone apps or plug-ins.
Creative Kit is an exceptional bargain at $130 for the complete package, as opposed to paying prices ranging from $30 to $60 for individual app components. A pro kit, which includes a training package, is available for $155. Tryouts are free.
Review on: Macworld
Software developer Macphun has announced a new package designed to help photographers to combine multiple exposures into HDR images. Created in partnership with HDR specialist Trey Ratcliff, Aurora HDR provides tools for producing a wide range of effects via both manual controls and a collection of pre-sets. The pre-set looks are a combination of standard styles as well as Signature Pro sequences that emulate some of Trey’s favorite workflows.
The new application, which is available only for Mac users, features layers, masks and brushes for selective editing, as well as texture blending and radiance controls. The company points out that the software can be used to create very moderate and natural looking images as well as the more extreme tones and colors most people readily associate with HDR.
TIFF, RAW and JPEG files are supported for combining within the program, and the company promises a friendly and easy-to-use interface. Aurora HDR can be used as a standalone application or as a plug-in for Abode’s Photoshop and Lightroom, as well as Apple’s Aperture programs.
