Hey all - I finally downloaded Paintshop Pro x8. To say the difference in the end result is night and day would be a complete injustice! I haven't ever cared one bit about photography until now, and I've had no previous experience. Here are two of the most recent shots I took before getting decent software - keep in mind they're some of the best I'd taken and both had pretty remarkable conditions! And now, post-decent software, here's one from yesterday and one from today: Seriously, take the plunge - I was using Picasa before but real postprocessing software has opened my eyes to what our birds are truly capable of. And, droning was fun before, but this is just ridiculous - this evening I was driving home when I saw that magnificent sky in the last picture, so I pulled over like I was having a stroke and got her in the air. Learn a. how to do HDR (high dynamic range, which most of our shots will be since they'll likely involve both bright sky and dark land) and how to use layers in the software - neither one is difficult but they're complete gamechangers. Happy flying, all!
