What A Difference Dagbolt Makes
The makers of SHOTBOX are developing some photo editing software and I am lucky enough to be a tester. It is called Lightsage for SHOTBOX but it's URL name is Dagbolt. I'm not sure why there is a discrepency in names but I do know that this little software program works wonders on shiny surfaces! It has a "Glare Be Gone" feature that merges 2-4 photos and eliminates the glare from the lights inside the box. I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison of the same photos, one using the Glare Be Gone setting and the other being an unedited shot. Wow! Am I ever impressed! Look at how amazing the picture on the left looks, with no unsightly glares distracting from the picture! There is also the ability to do an auto-adjust of the tint and the tone which brighten and sharpen up the pictures. I think that Lightsage for SHOTBOX, AKA Dagbolt, is going to be my new best friend!

Below you can see the setup inside the box. Since my intent was to only capture an image of the scrapbook page, there was no need for props and backgrounds. I did use one of the anti-glare shields to line up my scrapbook page against the side wall so that I could get a straight picture of the page. It was a little bit trickier to get my camera to line up straight but I think I did pretty good with that! I used the topshot feature to take my picture.
