It’s been a jet fueled couple of weeks here at Design Aglow. From our recent obsession with Pinterest which launched the creation of our first Pin to Win contest (hurry, it ends the 26th!), to the launch of two brand new gorgeous products, to a fabulous Open House hosted in our new Portland studio earlier this week (two words: donut bar)... we’re gearing up for a fun and fast-paced summer. Bring on the Vitamin D (just don’t forget your sunscreen)! For months we have been looking forward to getting to know our Portland community. And we finally were able to say hi to 50+ Portlander photographer friends at the Open House on Monday, along with our industry guest of honor, Finao. The Open House was a blast! We enjoyed mingling with creative locals in between bites of donuts. Portland-based Blue Star Donuts, aka our new BFFs, catered the event with fan favorites such as Maple Bacon and PB&J and our office personal fave, Blueberry Bourbon Basil. If you were able to swing by, we loved seeing you and can’t wait to do it again soon! As you know, we are fiercely dedicated to helping improve your personal and professional workflow so you can juggle everything better while saving time and money. In the past month we’ve released not just one but TWO game changing marketing products we are loving right now: the one-of-a-kind Virtual Postcards and gorgeous Hand Lettered Poster Printables. Both are customizable, and both are complete Design Aglow originals — you won’t see anything like them on the market! Be sure to stay tuned this summer… we’ve got some BIG things coming up! Until next time~

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.
