Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Lightroom organizes your photos in one place, and makes them available on your computer, on the web, and on your mobile devices. Collections of photos sync to your devices—it’s like having your photo albums with you all the time. As your photo library grows, you can quickly find any photo based on when you took it, where you took it, and who is in the photo.


Adobe Photoshop Elements

Photoshop Elements is the basic alternative to Photoshop Creative Cloud (or CS) – but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have a lot of power. It’s now in its thirteenth iteration, and new features include an easier way to merge photos together, a new crop suggestion tool, extra effects and a way to create a combined Facebook profile and cover photo. More good news is that it’s now fully compatible with High DPI Windows monitors and has Retina support for Mac.


Adobe Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop is the predominant photo editing and manipulation software on the market. Its uses range from full featured editing of large batches of photos to creating intricate digital paintings and drawings that mimic those done by hand.


Topaz Remask

Topaz Remask is a very powerful plugin for Photoshop (and many more programs) to extract elements from your photos. Very amazing for portraits and many complex masking situations where you need to cut out objects. It makes selecting and extracting things very, very simple & very fast. I highly recommend it.”


Topaz Plugin Suite

“Topaz Labs makes so many great plugins for Photoshop (and many other programs) that I have to put a link here to the entire suite of programs they make! I have them all and can personally recommend them. Very easy to use, and very fun and inspirational. From making unique styles, to adjusting colors, to creating drama, to cutting out objects, all of the programs are very powerful, fast and easy.”


LRTimelapse

“I love this software to make time lapses! It is a fantastic plugin that works with Lightroom. Different versions of LRTimelapse support different versions of Lightroom, make sure you buy the right one for the version of Lightroom you are using!”


Photomatix 5

“Photomatix 5 is HDR photo editing software for fusing or tone-mapping multiple exposures into a single, high dynamic range photo. This Photomatix review details the pros and cons of the latest version of Photomatix, with screenshots from the program and sample photos that I’ve edited using Photomatix.
