Here is a few ideas for last minute Christmas shopping.
Get Luminar, the brand new Macphun editing software for MAC. Luminar is the new simple but yet very powerful editing software. Imagine a blend of MAC Photos, Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for only 69.99 CDN$. (from the app store)
Aurora HDR 2017 for MAC. A new version of this complete HDR software is available for 119.99 CDN$. There is good improvement versus the older version and you no longer have to choose between the normal and pro version. Aurora is the best HDR software in my opinion because it will let you take over so much controls in the creation process.
