  • How is this a valid or worthwhile comparison? The RAW is just that, RAW - unprocessed. Of course it is going to look worse than a RAW that was processed by the camera and has then been saved as a...
  • The magazine is going to pay the editor, the designer, the printer, the postal service, and many others. Why would you work for free in that case? Just going to go ahead and quote Richard as he...
  • As above AE Lock does nothing in manual mode. The meter will continue to take readings and they will change depending on what is in front of the camera but the exposure remains fixed unless you...
  • Software improves and so do my skills. I may be able to do a lot more with the image in the future than I can today, provided I have the source files.

  • Replied in Mixbooks
    I used Mixbooks (mixbook.com/) and was very happy with the quality, plus the user interface was fantastic. I used it to make a photo book as a birthday present for the mother in law.

  • I don't believe there is any actual "crop" tool that can do this (cue someone popping up with a link to such a tool). However you can do it by creating a new layer, drawing the shape you want for...

  • When you shoot in JPEG the camera does post processing on the image according to the style you selected (portrait, monochrome, landscape etc). This is what you see on the camera LCD when you...

    People have done exactly what you say they wont. I has approached to shoot a couples house house, a guys 50th Birthday (ok so not an Orgy, but close) and a Rugby Tournament.
  • It is impossible to give you more t.han a rough example of the sharpening settings we use as they will differ for different types of photo. Settings of X, Y, Z may be great for the image we are...
