Hi, I’m Jordyn Witko, part of the MuseCam team!
We’re beyond excited to release MuseCam to the world. I’ve been shooting and editing photos for a decade and with the launch of MuseCam, I’ve finally found a replacement for Adobe Lightroom. I now have a user-friendly application equivalent in power to desktop software at my fingertips.
Not only does MuseCam combine all of the most important features needed to edit your images, but your edits are saved at maximum quality, which is extremely important to photographers or anyone looking to showcase their work.
Below, I wanted to highlight how to use MuseCam to post process a photo.
Here is the original image that I started with:
To begin, I normally like to compare different presets on my image to figure out which mood fits best, then I tweak the preset to complement the photo I’m editing. I think our presets are one of the main draws of the app. Each preset was meticulously crafted, resulting in a diverse and unique collection of looks. Keep in mind, experimenting is key. Each preset will look different depending on the image.
1. For this particular image, I chose the preset TR08 from the ‘Tropics’ pack. I love how it converts the blues into green/ aqua hues!
2. Using the HSL tool, I then brought up the saturation of the aquas and blues to enhance the sky even more.
3. In the curves adjustment, I lifted the blacks and shadows to give a faded look so that the overall contrast was not so harsh. For a more in-depth look at how curves work in MuseCam, visit our entry “Using Tone Curves in MuseCam.”
4. Since the reds in the skin tones looked a little too pink for my liking, I adjusted the orange and red hues to make the skin more subdued by adding more orange and less pink. I also changed the blue hues to more aqua to brighten the sky further.
5. In order to cancel out any remaining harsh reds in the skin tones, I brought up the green highlights using the curves adjustment tool.
6. I then added a tiny amount of vibrance to make the colors pop more. A little goes a long way with this tool!
7. To finalize my edit, I applied film grain to add texture and play on the vintage feel.
Here is the final edit!
