Settling In

It’s been one full month since we arrived in Lincoln to move into our new home, and Brian and I are starting to feel fairly settled. I won’t have much of a photo space until the hardwood is installed, and because my Portland home-office consisted entirely of built-ins, I’m somewhat lacking for furniture at the moment. However, while I don’t enjoy my temporary office setup, I am excited at the prospect of a “clean slate”. In a few months, when I have my workspace set up and more permanent, I’ll be sure to share some photos. I’m in my office most of the day, so I’d like to keep it decorative and keep most of the “tech” stuff in my newly-installed shelving system in the closet, minus my giant two-monitor computer setup.

In the meanwhile, I’ve been working diligently on a new ON1 Photo preset pack, ONE Hundred Vol.2, in my online store. I’m really excited about this one and have had a lot of fun playing with it on my own images. It is filled with dozens of overlays and borders, all of which can be used in any layer-based application (so if you don’t use ON1 Photo then this pack is still extremely awesome!). Here are a few before/after examples of what I have come up with, and you can take a look over on the product page to see more. I expect it to be ready in a few weeks, so if you want to make sure you don’t miss the special launch promotion then click here to sign up for my newsletter.

    First of all, congrats on your new stage in life. It is a big step with wonderful new opportunities. Best wishes!

    Now, I am looking forward to ON1 Hundred Vol.2. I have a few of your overlays, textures, and On1 hundred Vol.1. I love the textures and overlays for my antique car photos. On 1Raw makes my edits fun and easy (sort of). The final look is unique and a style I think I will continue with for now. There’s a couple entries on my website. Thanks, Nicole.
