LiveStream: Joe Unboxes the new Boris FX Optics for Photoshop

August 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


August 17
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


HoustonPhotowalks Photography Club


Happening online

I will be experimenting for the first time with Optics, the new photo editing software from Boris FX. The live stream will start Monday around 1pm. Feel free to join in as I fumble around trying to figure out new software. 🙂

The live stream will be on our facebook page:


There is a new blog post on HoustonPhotowalks.com about the new software from Boris FX called Optics. Boris FX is known for their Academy Award Winning visual effects applications for the film and entertainment industry.

They recently released a new product just for photographers called Optics, and offered HoustonPhotowalks members a 15% discount.

In the same spirit of other “unboxing” videos, where people open new products for the first time and show them off, I will do an “unboxing” video of Optics. It will be a livestream broadcast on our Facebook group. So far, I have installed the software, added my license key, and opened one image to make sure the software is working — but I have not edited anything.

You can watch me as I use the app for the very first time, and hear my reactions and review in real-time. I’m most interested in seeing it’s level of speed and performance, and how easy it will be for a first-time user to figure out.
