FotoFlexer on-line editor

Na webu je celá řada on-line foto-editorů. Zcela náhodou jsem narazil na jeden, který je méně známý a při tom zajímavý bohatostí funkcí. Nabízí jak klasické funkce pro úpravy fotografií, tak některé art-funkce, které se opírají o zásobárnu efektů. Může si tak přijít na chuť jak amatérský fotograf, který hledá operativně dostupný kvalitní nástroj, tak fandové, hledající cesty jak obohatit fotky pro pobavení. Najdete ho na adrese: http://fotoflexer.com. Ocení mimo jiné rychlost reakce na povely a podpora komunikace se sociálními sítěmi.

Backgroung Burner - on-line service - review

The Background Burner quickly removes the background from any image or photo. The patent-pending technology does all the work automatically. You can upload an image by dropping it on the page, or by clicking "choose file." The technology will isolate the object you were intending to capture and melt away the cruft. Because it's hard for a computer to guess right every time, developers include a simple set of tools to perfect your result. For best results, choose a contrasting background. When the on-line editor ends the automatic work, you can see more burned options to choose from. If you don't see a perfect thumbnail, click "Touch up"on the thumbnail image that's closest to your desired results. The Background Burner will make several different "guesses." Pick the one that's the closest to what you want. You can always pick a different guess later, if you don't like the results. Don't be precise, just put marks in the general area and let the Burner figure out the details. You can download the Background Burned image as a JPG to get a white image background, for a transparent (alpha channel) background, download as PNG. Every time we use the tool, it learns from your results. The more we burn, the better and faster results you get.
Possible use cases: Make cards, brochures, or other graphic design, design a picture for your Twitter or Facebook profile (add new background as you see fit!). Use the url: https://www.bonanza.com/background_burner

AKVIS MakeUp - review

AKVIS MakeUp improves portraits and adds glamour to photos, giving them a professional look. The software lets you retouching small defects on a skin, making it radiant, beautiful, pure and even, as you can see on artistic images. It is amazing how much a good complexion adds to rejuvenating and freshening up a look! Stylish, glamorous photographs have become the hallmark of the fashion industry. But not everyone knows that before a photo hits the pages of a magazine, it is subjected to thorough processing.
These tricks of professional photographers are now available to everyone!
Just open a portrait with AKVIS MakeUp and click on the Run button. The software will retouch and freshen up the skin without changing other aspects of the photo. There are two modes – Express and Advanced. In Express mode you can do the correction with a single click using the default settings, while in Advanced mode you can choose the tone of the skin more precisely using the eyedropper tool and play with more parameters to find the golden mean between glamour and authenticity. In Advanced mode you can achieve special effects, for example - High Key Lighting, which blows out harsh shadows and thus removes small imperfections and the shadows under the eyes. The features of a face become well-defined and the portrait appears in the best light. The software is ideal for processing marriage photographs or graduation party photos. On such special occasions people try to achieve a perfect result – flawless portraits of the main participants.
Thanks to Batch Processing feature, you won't need to process every single picture, but just apply the chosen settings to the whole folder with the event shooting. 
AKVIS MakeUp can be useful to the fans of social networks and blogs to improve their profile pictures and add a touch of glamour to the albums.

EXPOSURE5 – review

This is not the first time I am reviewing the Exposure from AlienSkin. You can still see the All-in-One Slideshow-review of the Exposure 3 here: http://www.akamonitor.cz/product-reviews/exposure3 .
In my new review, you will find short list of newest enhancements ( for reader who know the old review ) and a short list of main features of  the Exposure ( for reader who need an overview.)   This will be just a taste of many more Exposure features.
What is new in the last (5) version:
- The redesigned user interface in Exposure 5 reduces distraction and provides new ways to quickly find your  style.
- much wider range of textures and new controls to subtly combine them.
- the preset browser now uses thumbnails for a more visual experience.
- You can quickly filter by categories like Black & White or Color.
- You will find specific looks with fast searching by name or description.
- In Exposure 5 you can tag your favorites so you can get back to them later.
- Your most recently applied effects are automatically remembered.
- The darker theme helps you focus on  your image and matches other tools in a professional workflow.
- The new Lightroom-style collapsible panels allow  you to see only the controls you care about. Tools that get out of the way provide more space for your photo.
- Exposure 5 has even more texture overlays that add creative details for vintage or Lo-Fi looks.
- You can now separately control light leaks, borders, and dust & scratches.
- Focus on What’s Important Exposure’s updated user interface lets you work with fewer distractions.
- Exposure 5 fits into any workflow. It integrates seamlessly with Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, and now Aperture.
- Exposure now works as a standalone application too. This helps you quickly batch process multiple images and supports workflows that don’t use plug-ins.
- Exposure covers a huge range of looks from throughout the history of analog photography.
- Exposure covers both black & white and color in one unified product, so there is no need to switch tools as you explore ideas.
