Smart Keyboard vs Magic Keyboard and MacBook Pro Keyboard (size comparison)

This video is to show the size differences between the Smart Keyboard for the 10.5" iPad Pro vs. the Apple Magic Keyboard and the keyboard on my 15" MacBook Pro.

I feel the Smart Keyboard is still too small to use for anything long form. It is fine for Twitter, but, for any serious writing, I will probably connect my Apple Magic Keyboard to my iPad Pro and type on that. Of course, this is my personal opinion, so results may vary!

How To Change Text Color In Affinity Photo On The iPad

It is not obvious how to change the text color in Affinity Photo, I really wish the developers would move the color wheel to the text selection panel, or at least link to it from there. The way they have hidden the color wheel is not very intuitive!

Yes, the 10.5" iPad Pro with Smart Keyboard will fit inside the Leather Sleeve. It is snug and it will stretch the leather, so be careful, that Leather Sleeve is expensive.

I like the sleeve, I don't mind paying the price as I know it is a quality leather product. I am not saying it is worth $129, I am saying that I don't mind paying $129 for the Leather Sleeve!

Luminar Neptune - The new Accent AI Filter with Quick & Easy Workspace

Macphun has released a massive update to Luminar, which they are calling Neptune. The main feature of this update is called the Accent AI Filter, and what this filter does is it takes a photo and analyzes different areas of the image; such as the dark and light areas of the image, the structure, colors, and other parameters. The Accent AI Filter will automatically make adjustments to intelligently fine-tune what the image needs to create a stunning photo. Thus, making the work of the non-professional and professionals alike easier with a much more simplified user-interface.

Noble Monochromatic Preset Pack for Luminar

The Noble Monochromatic Preset Pack for Luminar is a $6.99 preset pack that features 9 filter/effects that can be applied to your photo inside of Luminar. With this monochromatic preset pack, the ideal photos would be architecture or portrait, in my opinion; but, of course you can apply to any photo you feel is worthy of the effect. I do like the black/white look that the effects in this bundle offer. I enjoy applying these effects on aerial shots of buildings or architecture. Check my demo video above for an example of all the effects that are included in this preset pack. “9 monochrome presets that will give you precise control of detail, shadows, highlights, and delicate tonality. Macphun Team collaborated with pro photographers to create this pack for perfect black & white photos.”You can purchase the Noble Monochromatic Preset from the Macphun website:

This pack was developed by Macphun Team in collaboration with pro photographers, and works great with all types of images.”The Essentials preset pack is probably my favorite of the preset bundles that I have installed on my machine. I think the effects look great out of the box. Most of the effects are ready to go, where I don’t have to make any additional adjustments other than maybe toning down the overall effect of whichever effect I chose to apply to my photo.
