Black Friday Deals and a Discount Code


You might have guessed (after all it’s in the title of the blog!) that I love all things Mac. You might also know, if you have been here before, that I am a photographer. Well, we photographers are mostly digital rather than film shooters, even though film (or analogue as some call it) is having something of a revival.

Be that as it may, digital means (not obligatory) that we need a way of enhancing our shots or at the very least convert them from RAW, unless we shoot only Jpegs. Now, over time there have been photo editors (software that is) that have come and gone. Even Apple killed off the much-loved Aperture (shame on you Apple). However, Adobe has been around almost from the very beginning of the digital revolution, with Adobe Photoshop it’s premier product, joined more recently by Lightroom. With Adobe moving it’s product line to the cloud in the shape of Adobe Creative Cloud and the subscription model, others have entered the market to provide alternatives that don’t require a monthly subscription. One of those companies is Macphun, soon to become Skylum (more on that in a minute).

Macphun have released a whole suite of apps to provide editing tools for photographers. These include Creative Kit, Tonality, Noiseless, Intensify, Snapheal and FX Studio. Their leading products are Luminar and Aurora HDR, both now updated as Luminar 2018 and Aurora HDR 2018. Right now, if you click on any of the links above you will be taken to Macphun’s Black Friday Offer pages. You can also get a further $10 off by using this discount code (includes upgrades): NEWBELTANE.
