I’m not a drone photographer (though I do look longingly at the DJI Mavic every time I see it at Costco), but I do occasionally take photos with my iPhone from airplanes. Not the same, but when it comes to issues faced by drone photographers, there is some overlap:
- Low or Extreme Contrast
- Chromatic Aberration
- Small Sensor
AirMagic was made to target these issues and works using an easy drag-and-drop interface. For those using drones, your camera model is automatically detected and camera-specific optimizations (such as lens correction) are applied.
If you’ve ever used Photolemur, AirMagic’s user interface will be familiar. It is based on the same clear and simple design – but the number crunching and AI wizardry under the hood is very different.
AirMagic supports batch processing, enabling photographers to improve multiple photos simultaneously. Depending on the size of your photos and computer specs, it can process up to 4GB at once! This means less time behind the computer, and more time out flying and photographing.
Aerial photographers can put their own creative touch on their images using the five built-in Styles. The software supports all popular image formats, including raw files, and can be used as a standalone editor or as a plugin with Lightroom and Photoshop.
