Affinity Photo – correction

In my previous reviews of this excellent software, I made a mistake regarding its focus stacking, saying that the individual layers in the stack cannot be edited.

This is incorrect. See this Youtube video for details.

To my mind Affinity is simply fantastic and it offers a real depth of features. But this mistake on my part shows it’s really worth digging into it before concluding it cannot do something.

I’ve done quite a bit of focus stacking in Affinity and the results have been consistently excellent. Knowing that I can also tweak the result just adds to my respect for and confidence in this software.

Image sharpening & noise reduction

Topaz A.I.Sharpen can not only sharpen images but correct slightly out of focus and blurred images.

Topaz A.I.Clear both sharpens and removes noise. It is the best noise reduction program around.

Photoshop and Lightroom Alternatives

Exposure X4 is the best alternative to Lightroom as far as image browsing and management goes. It is also a decent RAW converter and image editor.

Affinity Photo is the complete Photoshop replacement.

RAW Development

Skylum Luminar is a full featured RAW converter with a basic image browser. Its shadow recovery is the best in the business.

Photolemur is an automatic RAW converter, based on Luminar. Its results are very decent with facial detection and enhancement.

Photo Ninja is a purists RAW converter. It is not as fully featured as the others but it produces some of the best results, especially if you are prepared to build camera profiles.
