  • One other thought not as related to fixing the image. An aperture of f/22 will not give you the sharpest image due to the diffraction blur at such a small aperture. You will end up with a better ...
  • Using Raw would make pulling out the sky details a lot easier and without the posterization in this ACR adjustment:
  • You may have already made your decision and gone with neither one. I have used both Lynda.com and KelbyOne and it depends on your learning style.  Lynda is more classroom style with more detail and ...
  • Hi Andy - A few thoughts - What you see on the web is of course someone putting their best foot forward and not the noise of a Raw file (e.g. noise reduction software etc) - The perceived noise in ...
  • Content Aware Scale in both vertical and horizontal Gradient dim of lower rocks and upper mountain Raise tone or bighorns Basic tone, clarity, vibrance
  • Thanks for sharing pureseer.
  • Hi Martin I only use JPEG when I know I going to a final use (otherwise store in original format).  When targeting JEPG I first resize to pixel dimensions needed.  240 to 300ppi for prints and ...
  • In your image, based on the shadows of the people near the beach, the sun is to the upper right and in front of where the image was shot suggesting that either a lens hood was not used or was not ...
  • Banding is often caused by extreme processing e.g pushing part of the image into the blacks and then another step to bringing them back out of the blacks. With 8 bit images this will cause ...
  • If you see this in the same position in the full frame all the time you will want to check out your sensor for contamination as well as the lens you are using for the same.  Lastly you might have ...
  • Sorry about that. I found a couple problems with my description. Updated instructions Assuming you want 30 pixels of image outside the border and then 5 pixels further in for the white stroke: - ...
  • Hi sunshine I am sure there are many ways to do this. Here is just one way for exact easy pixel positioning (though other approaches are better for non-pixel positioning such as percentage distance) ...
  • Hi Ian - If edits are done where the changes are stored in metadata the image of course is not damaged.  Similarly if non-destructive techniques are used in editors such as PS where you don't edit ...
  • Hi Jam Assuming you are referring to the spot healing tools: I use both as they have different capabilities/features. In ACR all changes are stored in metadata instead of in the pixels or an ...
  • Hi pureseer Your welcome. Calibration typically has a step to set the brightness.  However, System Preferences on a MacBook Pro has a setting to change the brightness automatically as well as the ...
  • This suggestion may not solve your problem either. If you don't mind after you have editing pixels with whatever Photoshop tool having it turned into a Smart Object which then can be edited in ACR ...
  • Hi Pureseer Your results are a perfect case-in-point why the comments by Ken Rockwell are not spot on. Even in is post he mentions he calibrates his monitor which also means he is using color ...
  • One way to do this is in LR Preferences, General Tab, Import section uncheck the box that says treat Raw and JPEG as separate images.  Only Raws are imported for editing yet the JPEGs are noted as ...
  • Replied in John
    I agree it's not fun so here is one titled THE BUSINESSMAN LUNCH Stock image from http://www.freeimages.com/photo/1152796 and adding some content aware   fill.
  • Well Countrybutterfly, as you can see there can be a wide interpretation of "any idea" in your question. I can't top the examples already given so will just give a plain old approach.   If you ...
