Op hierdie blad wil ek nie net artikels plaas oor die neem van fotos nie, maar die sagteware om fotos te verwerk. Oral word Adobe Photoshop opgehemel as ‘n moet. Ek verskil egter daaroor want ek as persoon is nie bereid om sagteware te huur nie, al besit ek oor ‘n wettige CS6 lisensie. Van die goedkoper alternatiewe kan dieselfde doen, net op ‘n ander manier en kos ‘n halwe jaar se huurgeld. On this page, I don’t want to post about the taking of photographs only, but about the software to enhance them. All over Adobe Photoshop are stated as a must. I however differ and as a person I am not prepared to hire software, although I own a valid CS6 license. Some of the cheaper alternatives can do the same, but only on a different way and only cost haf a year’s hire costs.
