  • It's probably because Coloredge screens are expensive and for a niche market really. Most people aren't going to spend that much on a screen or care that much about colour accuracy. Mass market ...
  • No version of Lightroom has converted any manufacturers raw files to DNG on importing by defult. You can tell it to do this but you do not have to. The import options in LR6 are the same as before. ...
  • When processing RAW files you can make the colours pretty much look any way you want so any manufacturer colour traits you may see from in camera jpg files are irrelevant.
  • You cannot do this. LR does not contain Camera Raw. It uses the same processing as Camera Raw but it is not a plug in in LR.
  • You'll just need your LR4 serial number. In my experience I just needed the last one.
  • You don't need the previous version of LR installed to install the upgrade version. All you do is install LR. When you start LR it will ask for the serial number. You input your number for LR6. ...
  • Using an external disk for the photos will slow things down as the connection to the computer is slower than if the disk is in the computer.
  • Is your monitor calibrated? Are your colour management settings in the relevant software set correctly? If not then this is probably the reason.
  • Replied in USB2 to USB3
    A USB3 port should work with a USB2 device with no problems. The standard is designed this way. There is no such thing as a USB3 to USB2 cable. The only difference between USB 3 and 2 is the ...
  • A tele lens would be very useful in Nepal. If you wanted to take a pcture of just one mountain or detail on a montainside or down in a valley a wide angle would be useless as you would be too far ...
  • A lens with a longer focal length than 50mm is most likely to be useful for motorsport as you won't be close enough to use the 50 most of the time. The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II doesn't have the best ...
  • Unsharp mask is a particular method of sharpening with certain parameters - radius, threshold, and amount.
  • The amount of sharpening will depend on what is in the picture to some extents.  There is no one value to use for everything. DPP/LR/other RAW converters don't create a new RAW file.  They just ...
  • Replied in Mov files
    Windows Media Player in Windows 7 can play .mov files without any extra software.
  • Replied in Photoshop CS6
    The CC versions are still installed on your computer.  They do not run in the cloud.  They work perfectly well with not internet connection.  The only time an internet connection is actually ...
  • Replied in Photoshop CS6
    Well if you save them as layered TIF files other software can open them just fine. Of course editing the layers wouldn't be so easy but you would have the image in a readable format.
  • As long as you have a relevant monitor profile for whatever mode your monitor is in then images will look the same when viewed in colour managed applications.
  • Replied in Photoshop CS6
    The CC version is installed on your computer just like other software.  You download it and install it.  The cloud bit refers to Adobe periodically checking the licence over the internet and some ...
  • NEC wrote the Spectraview software to fully control the advanced hardware calibration features of their PA series monitors.  That is why it is so effective. Datacolor write software to enable their ...
  • If you have to do this your screen is too bright.  If everything is set properly then no adjustments are necessary.
