You've probably seen those cool panoramic images in Facebook where you can not only drag to explore the image, but even tilt and pan your phone to do it. Neat! I really wanted to add a panoramic photo I'd created in Lightroom to Facebook, but it didn't work. It turns out, there's a few things you have to do… and the path to figuring that out was a looooong one.

PhotoKit by PixelGenius is a robust tool for B&W editing, eschewing a fancy interface for traditional ideas that work very, very well. If you’ve transitioned from the chemical darkroom to the digital one, you’ll appreciate the terms and methodology applied here. But even if not, if you have an appreciation for black and white image processing, you’re bound to find PhotoKit an exceptional tool to add to your arsenal.

I’m going to kick off the “non-Aperture, non-Photos” posts with something crazy advanced. Luminosity masks are not for the faint of heart, but once you get your head around them, WOW you can do amazing things. I’m not going to try to teach you this stuff — I barely get it myself! — but I am going to point you in the right direction.

As we all know, Aperture is no longer being developed. However more and more third party applications are popping up on the App Store — some for very little money — that may fill in the some of the gaps while we wait for Photos to be released. In this post, so that we can take advantage of some of these new apps, we look at Aperture’s built-in “Open in Editor” command, and the significance of the few options it offers. We also look at the many options you have when saving at TIFF file from Photoshop. Warning… this is a really, really long post.

There are of course times when we need to go outside of Aperture for our work. It might be to access a single plug-in, or to use a tool in Photoshop that Aperture lacks, but in some cases it’s bigger than that, such as creating a large composite file. In situations like that however, Aperture doesn’t cease to be part of the workflow. In fact, it can be a critical component, where each individual file is prepped and managed before being sent off to another land.
