Still in love with Perfect Photo Suite 7
Last week OnOne Software launched their Perfect Photo Suite 7 and VisualPhotoGuide.com had the privilege of reviewing the new software. If we were impressed by Perfect Photo Suite 7 last week, we’re in love with it now. See how Perfect Photo Suite 7 transformed this picture of a cockatoo in a tree.
When I first discovered editing software as a child photographer, my favourite thing to do was juxtapose elements from one picture into another. I’d spend hours painstakingly cutting out my friends and inserting them into one large group shot. When I was finished, people who didn’t know each other leaned on each other and sat on each other’s shoulders. It was tedious work and although the end result impressed my family and friends, it did not fool them. Perfect Mask achieves this seamlessly.
I can’t get over how easy it was to remove the sky in this photograph, using the Keep and Drop droppers, even with the branches in the way. The branches did keep me from using the quick Remove Background button, but it was still quick and simple. OnOne Software offers a great how to video, and as you can see, the effect can be achieved in less than two minutes. Remember to double click the Magic Brush (that’s the brush with the little snowflake). I missed that step and spent many hours trying to figure out why my sky wouldn’t disappear. Once I went back and watched the video, I kicked myself for missing the step and then it was smooth sailing, and I think the picture is much more interesting with the new sky
Snap into focus
The round focus bug tool was the feature that I was most anxious to use. I found it even easier to utilize than the Keep and Drop features. The hardest part was picking which of my pictures to alter. This was the first cockatoo I saw when I got to Australia but he was well hidden by the tree branches. You can see how the cockatoo stands out after being treated with the focus brush. For a quick run through watch the video provided by OnOne Software.
I finished my cockatoo picture off to turn this less than extraordinary picture into a dynamic image I can share with family and friends who are interested in seeing what it’s like in Australia.
