My Favorite Plug-ins from OnOne Just Got Better

Lightroom and Photoshop plug-ins are huge these days. Just about every person I run in to uses at least one (if not several). Well, one of my favorites from onOne Software, just got even better. Today they announced their Perfect Photo Suite 9 is available for download. They announced the new version last month at Photoshop World in Vegas, but it’s actually shipping (or downloading) today So what’s new? I’ll run down...

PLUG-IN: Show Focus Point Lightroom Plug-In

A while back I wrote a post on some features I’d love to see, but I really didn’t think would make it in to Lightroom. Well, one of those features was the ability to show me my focus points. At times, I’ll shoot the same photo but focus in different areas. As a landscape photographer, sometimes I’ll merge a few photos together (focus stacking) to get an ultra sharp photo. Other times, I just use one photo, but...

Lightroom Plug-In: If You’re Looking For Film Effects, Check Out Alien Skin Exposure 6

Super-Fast Browsing in onOne Software’s Perfect Photo Suite

Anyone that’s ever been to one of my smaller workshops or editing photos next to me knows that, while I do most of my work in Lightroom, I usually look at my photos in Photo Mechanic first. Why? Mainly because Photo Mechanic is lightning fast at showing you your thumbnails and even higher quality photos than Lightroom. Now, I don’t do this all the time.

Lightroom Analytics Plug-In

I just came across a Lightroom plug-in that looks pretty clever. It’s called Lightroom Analytics and it has absolutely nothing to do with making your photos better. But it’s free and it’s cool – two things that can’t go wrong in my book It basically looks at the info/metadata in your Lightroom library and creates a CSV file of all the statistics about the photos you shoot. The numbers themselves exist in...
