May Cover This month we explore pro raw converters and image-editing options. While our reviews feature products that pose an alternative to Adobe Photoshop, they will handle many of your image processing needs. We also explore the use of image stabilization with tripods to see if they are friends or foes. Finally, beauty shots of New York City’s Eventi Hotel/Beatrice luxury apartments were a key part of Jon Ortner’s assignment for the property developer, but to find out what inspired his on-the-fly creativity, you’ll have to get down to street level on page 120.

The pixels that make up a digital image each have an "address",
a code that defines color, brightness and shades. When we make images with a
digital camera or from film with a scanner we are creating a matrix of pixels
that altogether create the illusion of a continuous tone image. These codes
are not dyes or even densities, but specific information as to how the computer
will interpret the colors and tonal values on the screen. It is only when we
make a print that we leave the "digital" world and enter the world
of dyes and pigments. Because each pixel has a code, basically a bunch of information
that is composed of bits and bytes, we can alter that code to change the "address",
or color and tonal look of every pixel. In this lesson we'll use the Replace
Color dialog box, found in most versions of Photoshop, or under other names
in other programs, to illustrate the point and give you an easy, fun way to
play with your pictures.

Low Light Exposure

Tripods and Image Quality

There are many ways to work with monochrome images, including selective adjustment
of tonal values, contrast and even image color that can emulate toning. In this
installment of our Web How To's we'll play with colorization, adding
color to selective parts of a monochrome image that can make it look like a
combination hand-painted (with photo oils) and toned photograph. You can paint
in selectively with brush tools if you like, but this how-to deals with a more
simplified approach.
