With A Little Help From Microsoft Photos

'Digital Moments - Post-enhancing your images with Microsoft Photos is equally a competent way of getting a well-balanced render of your images'

I do a fair amount of LRT (Light Rail Transport) hopping, on the weekends, where I would first take the train, either to the city or in the opposite direction, dropping off at interconnecting stops along the line, to do the loop before coming back to join the main route I was originally on.

Olympus E-P5, Lumix G 14mm F2.5 Asph.
While most of the trips lately were done with film cameras that I was trying out, this is a rare occasion where I took the digital E-P5 out with me.

On this trip, I had the camera mounted with the Lumix G 14mm F2.5 Asph. and this is one of the shots I came back with, a quick five-frame on one of the lines I was on.

Back on the desktop, I am also warming up (rather slowly) to the new image-editing software from Olympus, Olympus Workspace, which replaced the older Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) a few months back. Between the two, I do add in edits with apps from a standalone version of Google NIK Collection and even Microsoft Photos in the process workflow.

When things get a bit bothersome while working on either of the two, I will go for a shortcut and have the image or images post-enhanced on Microsoft Photos, as with the images posted here.

Post-enhancing images on Microsoft Photos

The enhancements are done on the 'Filters' section of the apps, where you can go for automated enhancement by just clicking on the 'Enhance your photo' image, or go further and have the image rendered with the menu of filter effects.

You can go further with the image development by going for the 'Lighting Adjustment' menu where you have more options with 'light', 'Color', 'Clarity', and 'Vignette'. Getting images which are just right for web publishing is a no-brainer with the app.

The good part about using Microsoft Photos is that the app is installed with the version of Windows you are using, you can access the 'Edit & Create' interface by clicking on any image you have in your image folders, and using it is very easy and intuitive.
