When asked how this idea
Nataly Tikhonovich, the MyPhotosoft editor, said, "This site
started with the first single step of any journey - buying a digital
camera. The first thing I did with my pictures - I tried to remove
the red eye effect. First with the camera's accompanying software,
then, naturally, with Photoshop. The new facility and knowledge were
coming to me as an avalanche - adjusting colors, shooting raw and
converting, adjusting raw photos in a converter and almost forgetting
about under- or over- exposure. And learning the myriad of
possibilities Photoshop provides. You try them. You learn more and
more, and at some point, people around you start saying that's
great, how did you do it?"
"That is when I
thought of sharing
observations, thoughts, knowledge and ideas with others. Not only
with those who are around, but to all kinds of people everywhere.
Those who are just starting out with digital photography will get
much benefit, and even those who are already professional might
discover a program they haven't tried".
MyPhotosoft.com is aimed at
answers to its users' questions and helping them to find their way
among the multitude of photo software programs. It features original,
even exclusive series of full-length reviews of various digital photo
software with lots of example images, comparisons of similar
programs, their performance, and ratings.
"We intend an
to every review. We plan to demonstrate use of the programs so our
users will see the results right on the screen. Tutorials and tips on
Photoshop and other photo editors and plug-ins are there, too" -
But even more importantly,
the site is
meant to be interactive. The site has free registration and all
registered members have an opportunity to upload images, write
comments, submit new material, and discuss articles and tutorials at
the Forum. They can bring their opinions, question, and ideas.
"There are a few
full length reviews and user forums in one place. And they are
usually targeting quite a narrow audience. We are building a
community of all those who deal with digital images, whether they are
professional designers and photographers or just ordinary people who
have a digital camera and want to get the best results from it."
