Free Photoshop Alternatives For Editing Photos

Photoshop has been the darling of the design industry for decades. It’s a fantastic program that has led the way since the release of Photoshop 1 on the Mac way back in 1990. However, not everyone can, or wants to, pay the $699 that Photoshop costs. Thankfully there are a lot of free Photoshop alternatives available for photo editing. Some of these are very basic and are suitable more for only basic photo editing, whilst others are feature rich applications that give Photoshop a run for its money.

HDR Tutorial – Almost everything you need to know about HDR Photography and HDR Tutorial

[Image:stuckincustoms.com]
HDR is short for High Dynamic Range. It is a post-processing method of taking either one image or a series of images, combining them, and adjusting the contrast ratios to do things that are virtually impossible with a single aperture and shutter speed. I would say that about 75% of my images use the technique, and if you are new to it, then you may notice a slightly different "look and feel" to my photographs. You should also probably note that HDR is a very broad categorization, and I really hate categorization. My process starts with using basic HDR techniques, but then there are many more steps to help the photos look more... let’s say... evocative.

What makes a good photograph(er)?

Whenever we share a memorable photograph on personal portfolios, blogs, flickr, facebook or any other social media websites and expect visitors to add their feedbacks one very common feedback we have got is "wow", "awesoem", "amazing"... and after these words we recieve "which camera", "any post processing done?". And if our answer is affirmative then further responses come which directly translates into the words like "you guys have expensive cameras, photoshop skills. No wonder your photographs are good and pleasing to eyes". Does these words put a photographer on a backfoot in defensive mode? Or rather contemplate his journey towards the good photograph? It always has been later in my case.
Most of the commnets are of the form "you guys have expensive cameras and lenses". Does this directly mean that only expensive cameras can take good photographs? I cannot refrain myself to share a short story here.
