Corel Custom Photo

Photo House 5 reduces image acquisition to a couple of simple steps, with icons clearly showing how to input an image from a CD, digital camera, scanner or the Web. Corel Photo House 5 supports most common file formats, including Web-compatible formats such as JPEG or GIF, with an Interactive Slider and Live Preview to help find a balance between file size and image quality.

Retouching images is a simple matter, and everything from the lighting to the colour range of your image can be adjusted. Imperfect images can be improved using the sharpening tool. The ever-popular red eye fixing tool is there, a ‘must have' for family photos. Old photos can be brought back to life, improving contrast and removing scratches and other marks with few hassles.

Custom Photo also allows you to remove objects from one image and place them in another. Drop your older brother into a volcano or place yourself next to Greg Norman; it's just a matter of pushing the pixels around.

Some of the effects available are truly professional, with edge transparency, motion blur and auto F/X edges to provide results that would please most graphic designers. CYMK conversion, not available on many home user graphic packages, reflects the serious nature below the consumer surface of Custom Photo.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
