On Light Field Cameras - Focusing on the Future article (134 comments in total)
In reply to:

spitfire31: "And since light field cameras capture 3D data through a single lens, it'd be much easier to shoot 3D films - all of the parallax problems presented by stereoscopic cameras would disappear."
This I don't understand. 3D is 3D BECAUSE of parallax, corresponding to roughly the distance between the eyes.

How can a single lens on a static camera provide two different viewpoints necessary for the brain to reconstruct a 3D experience?

If you close one eye, does the world go flat?
You still see depth, but the effect is not as good as with two eyes.
Our eyes/brains do the same thing.

MaticB: Cool!

Picture 23, Why can I not find round specs like those?
Very nice set of images. Old pictures do not need to be 'arty', the sense of place and time is enough.

On Adobe leaks 'Lightroom Mobile' app article (212 comments in total)
In reply to:

drshuayb: I purchased Lightroom 5 recently and I opened a few raw images of my living room on it and I have to say that canon's digital photo professional program rendered the colors (especially the leather couch) almost perfectly whereas LR gave my couch much more yellow to it than it actually is. Any suggestions please??

Hello

I do find that is a curious statement as I have just done a comparison with a virual copy. All parameters default, just varied the process version. To my eyes 2012 is much less yellow, than 2010 or 2003. Playing with the quarter tones would have no effect on the colour. a different calibration would have more effect.

On Photoshop Gradient Tool: Part 2 - Adjusting Images article (87 comments in total)
In reply to:

Spectro: this is actually a useful article. Most of the tip article in the past yo have to dig around on this site. Most people using photoshop might already now this, but still good for beginners.

Hello

I don't think that this was mentioned, but you can use curves and levels to adjust the layer mask directly and that you can add to a layer mask by experimenting with the various gradient options like overlay and multiply.

Reilly Diefenbach: Now this I can see, especially for $49. Lightroom's ease of use instead of the clunky DXO interface and as good or better geometric correction. Good idea.

Hello

Thanks for your reply.
I would really like to try the plugin for Lightroom, but it will not load,see previous message.What is the name of the plugin and what folder is it in, as perhaps the installer has not actually installed the plugin?

Hello Olivier
Got your reply, I was looking in the wrong place.
It would be good to try out the plugin in Lightroom, but as far as i can see it does not offer any more than the correction tools in Photoshop, so would not be inclined to buy the plugin at UKP49

Hello Olivier

Still no message. Why not post it here? Also could you give me the folder and the name of the plugin to see if it has been installed? As I said the Photoshop plugin has been installed.

Hello

No response to the above, perhaps there will be one for this.
I have installed the tryout, which works in Photoshop CS5, but get a 'error occurred while attempting to load this plugin' message.

PS OS is Win7 pro

Hello

It seems a Euro version is 49 Euro, but a UK version at UKP49 is the equivalent of 61 Euro, but prices include taxes.
49 Euro is actually UKP 40
