Today we have another excellent use of the Blog & Inspiration Boards: Hot Off The Presses. Karen of KarenLeslie Photography writes, "I love using the Blog & Print Inspiration Boards to make my blog posts look crisp, clean & professional. So when I needed to upload the look of my website splash page and blog header, I looked to my design aglow products for inspiration. My website is my # 1 marketing tool, so making a great first impression is very important to me. Since I love how the inspiration boards make my blog posts look, I figured they would make a great graphic on my splash page. I picked some of my favorite photos from my Fall sessions and had a new design in minutes. I used the tag graphic for my logo as additional design interest. I then carried over the look to my blog by pulling apart one of the Inspiration Boards. I just took three of the frames, plus the tag (for consistency) and updated the slideshow header on my blog with new images.These templates are like having a graphic designer sitting next to me at all times. What I Iove about the Design Aglow products are that they are incredibly easy to use, stylish and customizable so that they fit my brand. I've already had several clients comment on how nice the splash page and blog look with the new design!" Thank you for sharing with us Karen! Enjoy your $75 gift certificate in the shop!
As photographers, we’re always on the lookout for new tools that will make our workflow faster and easier (while making our images look their best), and when we found Mastin Labs’ film presets for Lightroom, specifically Fuji Pro, Ilford B&W and Kodak Portra, we knew we had hit gold!
We downloaded and installed all three, and watched the included Getting Started tutorials Edit Your First Image and Using Tone Profiles that hold your hand and walk you through the presets and how they work.
The presets are incredibly easy to use, and quick to apply. And, we love that they are designed to replicate the films that we have known and loved.
