Alt Photo Mushroom Test


Jeff's mushroom photography is surprisingly popular, so we brought you more. The original purpose of the project was to test Alt Photo. At the end of the article you'll see what Alt Photo can accomplish out in the field.

David Mecey


Jimmy has been getting to know David Mecey, an accomplished photographer who started shooting for Playboy in 1979. David attributes some of his success to experience with film. He particularly loved Polaroid 669 and relies on Exposure to give him that same look. Read Jimmy's article to see more samples of David's work with beautiful models and uses of Exposure.

Blow Up and Gallery Wraps

Marilyn Sholin wrote an article for us about how she uses Blow Up to prepare her artwork for printing. You can see some close up samples of how much better Blow Up performed than Photoshop.

Speaking of printing, we have a free Photoshop panel that helps prepare photos for gallery wrapping. Jeff explains gallery wraps and shares a 10% coupon code for printing at APC in the blog article.
