Two of our members, Steve Eckhardt and Andy McGarty, gave demonstrations of the software they use for photo editing.
Andy started first, using Darktable, showing how the different tools available could be used to improve a portrait image. This was followed by Steve demonstrating how the use of templates and other tools in Luminar were able to improve the image of a harbour scene.
Steve went on to give a demonstration of Aurora 2018, with its categories and tools, and how to export the edited image.
Andy gave another demonstration of Darktable, this time showing the conversion of an ordinary colour shot into a punchy mono image. Finally, Steve demonstrated the AI features of Luminar to make changes to foliage, sky, adding objects etc. to an image of a church and churchyard.
A very interesting evening generating much discussion.
