I’m enjoying experimenting with this way of editing photos in Pixelmator Pro.
Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.
It does feel easier and more precise than other tools.
Actually I start with the default Machine Learning quick fix. Move to Curves Adjustment IF I want. Finally I might tweak specific colours.
This pic was much improved, for example, using Curves Adjustment. Cluttered, I played around to make the texture of the art work on the wall more 3D.
Here’s the photo before being uploaded to Instagram. The Instagram version is compressed. Lower quality.
I’m still using the Apple Photos app to move pics from cameras ➙ to folders ➙ to my Flickr master archive.
In fact, Apple Photos is a surprisingly good photo editor now. Less powerful than Pixelmator, but fast and easy for those I’m not posting online. It does have Curves Adjustment, as well.
In fact, Apple Photos has an Extensions tab where you can quickly pull up all the Pixelmator tools without opening that more powerful app. Cool.
