BESTSELLER NO. 13 in 2020
  • Fancierstudio lighting kit with background stand and three 6'x9' muslin backdrop.
  • Lighting Kit includes two Lightstand, two x 4 light heads, 8x45 Watt bulb, two Softbox 16"x24", Boom Stand with Arm Sandbag, 16"x16" softbox, and 105 Watt CFL bulb, Three 6'x9' Muslin backdrop in ( Black, White And Chromakey Green), Deluxe carrying case included.
  • These CFL light bulbs rated for 120v for USA standard. Please make sure before buying if your country uses 220v please do not use these bulbs they will pop or blow.
  • Benefits of lighting kit: Continuous lighting is always on, and the obvious advantage to working with continuous light sources is that unlike strobes and monolights, which take a great deal of practice to learn before you understand what changes will look like in a shot, what you're seeing in the real world with continuous lights will closely resemble the image that you're capturing. What you see is what you get and that makes it simple to adjust light positions and output as needed.
  • Benefits to a soft box is that it produces light which is more even than light coming from an umbrella. A softbox emulates the soft, directional lighting usually produced by natural window light. It softens and diffuses the lighting from the attached light source by transmitting the light through a diffusion panel.

JetPhoto Studio - a Free Image Organizer/Browser/Editor for Mac

JetPhoto Studio wants to be a do-it-all iPhoto replacement, at least judging by their advertising. It's free, but is it that good?

For instance, I no longer use the built-in email client for Mac (Mail.app), but Thunderbird, from Mozilla. Likewise, while I keep Safari around, I tend to use either Firefox or Camino, two very capable (and in Firefox's case, very customizable), open-source web browsers. In other areas, such as office applications, there are a number of alternatives to Microsoft Office, although the best at the moment is the Java implementation of OpenOffice, called NeoOffice.

In other areas, unfortunately (or not, depending on your point of view), there are slim pickings. For instance, although there are numerous open-source music players for the Mac (MPlayer, VLC, Play, Cog and ToolPlayer come to mind), none of these players distinguishes itself as an alternative to iTunes, at least as far as managing a library.

The same can be said of iPhoto. Although there are numerous commercial alternatives to iPhoto, I've yet to find a free option that compares to iPhoto's ease of use, library management, light editing features and connectivity options.

I was browsing through Apple's new software listings, when I saw a program I'd never seen before, called JetPhoto Studio. Advertised as a "feature-rich digital photo organizing and web publishing platform," I immediately downloaded and installed it.

And discovered that - at least for people who have thousands of photographs, JetPhoto Studio won't be an exact replacement for iPhoto. Where iPhoto allows the user to keep all his/her photos in a single place, interacting with them in a unified interface, all the while keeping them separated and organized by albums, JetPhoto Studio, while it has albums, has no way of grouping albums into a whole library, or else further dividing an album into smaller chunks.

With JetPhoto Studio, each time you import photos into your album, they are simply tacked onto the end, just as they would be in iPhoto. Unfortunately, where you would be able to group them into an album with iPhoto, here you can only view them as a flat library.

There are organizational niceties, however, and this will be a saving grace for many people. For those used to tagging MP3 files, for instance, JetPhoto Studio uses a similar idea, although it calls them simply Keywords. By the judicious use of Keywords, a JetPhoto Studio user can in effect group each batch of photos into an album, by giving each photo in that would-be album the same Keyword (the Keyword, of course, must be unique to that album). Then, to view only those pictures, simply perform a Keyword search for that unique identifier, and lo-and-behold, those pictures (and only those pictures), will be shown full-color (while the rest are grayed-out). It's not a perfect solution, but is definitely workable.

One other area where JetPhoto Studio again lags behind iPhoto is in editing options. I understand that someone looking for in-depth, fine-grain control over their editing will not be using a shareware application, and JetPhoto Studio does have crop, adjust, and image enhance tools (for color balance, brightness and contrast), plus a few extras, like converting an image to black amp; white or sepia tones, but the tools, while effective, are a bit clumsy to use. Still, they do work.

One unfortunate aspect of the editing process, however, is that each edited photo is given a place in the album. That's right. I took a desktop wallpaper, and converted it to sepia tones. Then I took the sepia-toned image and applied the auto enhance tool. I now have three copies in my library (the two edited versions, plus the original). I like the fact that the original image is kept around, but I have no use for each editing step to be preserved. It would be nice, since Core Image effects (built into the Mac operating system), are non-destructive, if a "recipe" of my edits could be saved, and the edits shown, but not alter the original until I'm done.

As potentially negative as this review is threatening to turn, however, there are some very strong points to JetPhoto Studio. The main one, by far, is in how easy it is to share your albums, and in how many different ways. You can:

Save an album as a Flash Movie

Save an album as a Lightbox Web Gallery

Save an album as a Google Map Gallery

Save a photo as a phone wallpaper

Upload an image (or album) to your Flickr account

Upload an album to your JetPhoto Server

There is also an option to make your images ready for the web, by cropping, resizing, and adding watermarks. There are no options to make photo books, birthday and greeting cards, or posters, as in iPhoto, but there's enough that if you really want to share your creative work with the world, you absolutely can, and in a very simple fashion.

And it should be mentioned as well how simple it is to import your photos into JetPhoto Studio. I don't have a digital camera, so was unable to check the support for different brands and models, but importing from a camera is one option. As well, you can import your photos from an iPhoto library, a process that seemed to go very well for me. You can also simply drag photos (or folders of photos) into an open library, and they will automatically be added. Finally, an option I love. If you have a folder of photos sitting on your hard drive that you want to convert, simply rename it. If the folder was called Photos, simply rename it to Photos.album, and it will automatically be seen by JetPhoto Studio as one of its albums, and treated accordingly.

As I said at the start of this review, JetPhoto Studio isn't going to be the perfect replacement for everyone. I think, however, that for people who don't need the sheet power of iPhoto, and just want something that lets them keep their photos together in one place, organized in an easy-to-understand fashion, then JetPhoto Studio is a good choice. If you'd like to try it out, head over to its home page, and give it a download.
