written by No Comments posted in Taking Pictures

As promised, an update on the Fotor HDR post I did earlier (Fotor HDR wants to replace… ). The first pass at anything new is usually, ‘how does it stack up against what I already use’. Which can be good if your current solution is your only path. In my case, I have always experimented […]
