What Photography Software Do I Use On My Mac | Vlog

What Photography Software Do I Use On My Mac | Vlog
   I thought I would do a video on what photography software I use on my Apple Mac for my day to day retouching. I know I teach how to use a number of different applications. But in this video I talk about which ones I prefer to use and why I may not use other programs that appear just as great.


   Here is a few links to some of the software I mentioned in this video:

Adobe Lightroom / Photoshop CC: http://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html
