Consider going to https://alternativeto.net. You can enter an app or tool and see what alternatives there are. I've used Magisto (https://www.magisto.com). I haven't used Spark Camera (https://www.sparkcamera.com) but it looks interesting. Enjoy!

For Mac, you might be looking for any slideshow application, be it LibreOffice Impress, Apple's Keynote or MS's Powerpoint.

As we search for individual photographic interpretations both left and right of natural or lifelike characteristics, it is vital this journey that almost always contradicts nature in one form or another, should also be subject to full disclosure of intent: the integrity of the photographer is center stage, and as a consequence, the art world, including both ...

This answer is: Thoughts on how to shoot sunsets so you end up with the best capture of the actual colors present in the scene BEFORE you do any post production. The best way to get the "soft, peachy-pink coloring" is to shoot when the colors are soft, peachy-pink. Every sunset has different colors and qualities. Shoot dozens of shots of all exposure ...

Part of the problem is the original image. Read up on copy stand photography. Things that help create a better image: Get a chunk of heavy glass. You want plate glass, not float glass. Plate glass is ground flat. Float glass has ripples. Ideal is a piece about 3/4" thick. This has to be larger than the pages. You can use glass as thin as 1/4" but you ...

You can recover 'gross' detail using curves, as mentioned in Hueco's post. You can additionally desaturate, leaving an essentially black & white image. This will be somewhat more legible… however, fine detail cannot be recovered because it has already been lost in the jpg compression, leading to these ghosting artefacts around the edges of each letter… ...

The problem of using simple color modifications on the raw document is that they apply equally to text and to background, so you are often limited in what you can do. My favorite technique with Gimp is to: Use the "Wavelet-decompose" filter to decompose the image in its frequency components Bucket-fill the bottom layer ("Residual", the very low frequency ...

I highly recommend you use instead a document scanning app like Genius Scan. The algorithm to straighten, enhance black and white, and save to pdf is built into those programs and it it far more useful than dealing with jpgs. But, if you must, you can use any editor to modify the “curves” of the image: The normal curve line is on the 45 degree line. Note ...

Adjustment LAYERS are non-destructive in Photoshop. You can delete or disable them at any time and get back to where you started w/o any losses. Adjustment layers only add data to the file; as shown by the file size (document size can be selected in lower left of the UI). The problem with 8bit vs 16bit is the accuracy of the math (digital edits are all ...

There can be less color in the result, yes. In a pixel, each color channel can take only one of 256 values (2⁸). Each adjustment transforms these 256 values to some other 256 values. But there is a constraint: for any pair of two values of input, the highest value of the two must remain the highest (otherwise you get an effect called solarization). If you ...
