Thanks to the generosity of ON1, we have a copy of ON1 Photo 2017 for the April raffle.
This powerhouse photo editor wowed the audience at the March meeting, when Chris Taylor demoed three of ON1 Photos extensive capabilities; replacing a drab sky with a bright blue sky and cumulous clouds; making localized changes to a photo to remove haze and give an illusion of a short depth of field; and using the content-aware eraser to quickly and easily remove distracting objects from your photos.
ON1 describes ON1 Photo 2017 as Your all-in-one photo organizer, editor, raw processor, and effects app.
As well, ON1 is including four extensive training courses from expert Matt Kloskowski.
The ON1 Photo 2017 license is valued at US$120 and allows installation on up to 5 Windows or Mac computers. Both stand-alone applications as well as plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom are included. Details at https://www.on1.com/products/photo-raw/
Tickets are, as always, a good deal at $1 for one, a great deal at $2 for three, or the unbelievable bargain of $5 for ten!
