  • 1. As others have said shutter speed is too slow. using a monopod or increasing shutter speed will help but most zoos wont allow tripods of monopods. 2. Does your camera have single point spot AF? ...
  • Lightroom is not Photoshop. It is not a pixel editor, which is what Photoshop is. Lightroom is a RAW processing package. It contains the Asset management features of Bridge (with some extras that ...
  • What exactly are your export settings used during the export? Are you using an export preset or manually configuring all the settings each time?
  • 1. Load canon's DPP software. It has an option to display which/the position of the focus point that was used. If the FP is not on the subject that indicates user error (you missed focus) but if ...
  • The author of that piece obviously should have taken a second glance and thought about what he was saying. The JPEG image is derived from RAW data. Unless the in-camera software is inventing data, ...
  • For whatever money you have the different brands are generally going to each have the same thing on offer. Yes the specs may differ slightly from brand to brand but in real world shooting the ...
  • +1 to all of Craig's comments I really wouldn't bother thinking about post processing the image until you have an image worth PP. You need to focus on your planning and composition first. The only ...
  • Yes but as you don't need to be sitting at your computer while it is doing them it doesn't really matter how long it takes. I realise it would be best if the OP could optimise all aspects of their ...
  • This is an important point. The 1 to 1 previews increase the import time (or rather they increase the time it takes after importing to prepare the previews that are used in editing). However that ...
  • Which one is faster when it comes to editing? You can go and watch TV or make a cup of tea while the images are importing so speed really isn't that important. You need to be sitting at the ...
  • Lightroom has Development Presets (a whole set of adjustments that can be applied to a group of RAW files with a single click). Lightroom comes with a bunch of presets installed. Many companies ...
  • +1 to what Keith said above. In addition the YN600EX-RT flash will not work with your existing kit (603 & 605 transmitters). This is because the YN600EX-RT is specifically designed to work with ...
  • Yes, you have a lesser latitude to adjust the image because the extra data from the original RAW has been discarded and no longer exists.
  • Then I guess Adobe are indeed the idiots responsible.
  • Replied in I'm Reborn
    They were volunteer projects (so unpaid)? In that case it was already a hobby (not a job - for which you would be paid). Going forward don't abandon good causes all together. Pick one or two ...
  • Sorry but that simply isn't how it works (nor should it be). Adobe write Photoshop. They provide a frame work for other companies to use in order to link their programs/plugins so that they work ...
  • It is the plugin's author that is responsible for keeping their plugin up to date with current technology. Are you running the 64bit version of CC2015? There is a 32 bit version that might work ...
  • Replied in Yongnuo? Why?
    Can't answer as to Mac but on PC I have done updates via Win 7 and Win 8.1. Haven't tried Win 10 yet.
  • Replied in Waiting
    There is a Chinese garden and Nunnery near me that has a selection of Lily Ponds. I go every year when the flowers are in bloom in an attempt to capture the perfect shot of a water lily. Sometime ...
  • But it is still a crippled/cut down version of ACR and the PSE editor still only works (for any useful editing) with 8 bit TIFF files, which is the point kodachromeguy was making.
