Photography Software

As part of our processing workflow, we mainly use Adobe Lightroom, however we also use a range of plug-ins and other software to achieve the best results. Here are some of the software we use and recommend.

Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop

Our starting point for all our images is Adobe Lightroom. This is a fantastic piece of software that we use to catalogue and start our editing processes. It is simple to use and has many features that allow you to be creative with your editing. With so many plug-ins available within Lightroom (check out the other software listed below) it handles all our requirements. The creative cloud version includes Lightroom (Classic & CC versions) and Photoshop at a reasonable monthly price of AU$14.29 / US$9.99.

ON1 Photo Raw 2024

ON1 Software

It works as a plug-in for Lightroom & Photoshop and as a standalone, which is an awesome alternative if you do not have these. No subscription is required and it is available for both Mac & Windows. At the heart of the software lies Develop & Effects which includes everything you could possibly need for creating the look you want. The hundreds of filters and presets are stackable, allowing for endless creativity. Click here to check it out and use “WIDESCENES20” in the coupon code at checkout for up to 20% discount.

ON1 Standalone Plug-ins

ON1 Standalone Plug-ins

ON1 Photo Raw is the flagship product, however, ON1 realises that not everyone wants to move from Lightroom, Capture etc. So, they have several standalone apps that can be used as a standalone or a plug-in to your favourite editing application. These include ON1 Photo Effects, ON1 HDR, ON1 NoNoise AI, ON1 Portrait AI, ON1 Sky Swap AI, and ON1 Photo Keyword AI.  Use “WIDESCENES20” in the coupon code at checkout for a further discount.
