My first portrait (part II)
Due to that and the comments that some of you left in the post, I decided to start using Lightroom and, a few weeks later, I’m totally addicted to it. This program provides me with every tool I need for photography editing and it salvages photos that otherwise I would have thrown away. This is an example of a photo that was totally crap, but I’ve been working with (What do you think?):
I’m going to keep GIMP in my computer for now because I believe GIMP and Lightroom can complement one another (GIMP has many of the functions of Photoshop).
I won’t make any negative comments about GIMP because I don’t have the experienced to critic it. Also, I’ve realized that GIMP works better in a Windows platform and I use Mac (GIMP works through X11 in Mac). There are, for example, some important pluggings that you can download for GIMP, but they only work in Windows (I think), so I wasn’t able to explore GIMP properly.
If there is somebody who has more experience, negative or positive, with GIMP, please let us know what you think. As I said, I’m going to keep using it for now, so I’ll keep you updated.
I hope you started the week well!
