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.
