I have decided to spend my day learning how to process photos and work my camera. I know that taking photos is a huge part of the travel experience and what I will be showing everyone when I get back. But dang its hard to learn how to do it all!
I decided to buy Affinity Photo rather than the more traditional Photoshop. I did this for the price tag primarily. Photoshop runs at about $523 a month if you want all the bells and wistles, or $20 a month for just one of their applications. Affinity is a one time purchase for one of the applications of $40, meaning in 3 months I will have already saved money. That being said the adobe program is very nice, and there is definatly a learning curve in learning how to use the Affinity program. They make this easy with hundreds of videos tailored just for people like me trying to figure out their program. Plus, you really cant beat the price tag once you get over the fact it doesnt have the Adobe logo. Below I have some videos of people who reviewed the program and did comparisons if you are interested:
Along with figuring out the details of that program, I have to discover how my new camera works. I got a new canon digital camera that I need to make sure I know how to use in its entirity. I leave town in 3 weeks and I have until then to figure out how to work everything to an acceptable level. My goal is to get fast enough at it to modify several photos and upload same day.
So, here I go.. I am gonna get back to reading user manuals and playing with my face! Happy Saturday 🙂
