  • Thanks; I always appreciate your insights.
  • Created discussion thread Calibration Practicalities
    I'm trying to learn a bit about the practical side of monitor calibration and hope that you can help. I do my editing under various lighting conditions throughout the day. Does this mean that I ...
  • Thanks; very helpful. My plan is to calibrate for daytime room lighting and also for night-time artificial room lighting.  Make sense?  How would I switch between the two profiles --in Windows 7 or ...
  • Created discussion thread Monitor Calibration and Windows 7
    Interested in seeing if monitor calibration makes a difference in my image editing or workflow. Will experiment with Spyder5 Pro and my Dell 2209WA monitor, using Windows 7 and Intel integrated HD ...
  • OK -- so an application needs profile info from my recently calibrated monitor, as well as color-space info to produce "correct" output colors from a specific image  Likewise, another calibrated ...
  • Thanks.  I'll be sure to read the references you cited. I guess the crux of my (mis)understanding is that I thought that the purpose of monitor calibration is to bring parameters in line with an ...
  • Thanks.  That's exactly what I thought. My question is: "I can see that an application needs to know the color space of its input, but why does it also need to know know about monitor calibration ...
  • I see this change as well during boot-up.  I always thought this was because the OS is adjusting from its default state to my monitor calibration info stored in its Look-Up-Table (LUT).  Monitor ...
  • Created discussion thread Some Basic Color-Management Confusion
    Here's a color management question that has probably been asked a million times. When I calibrate my monitor the results are stored within my PC's OS (W7) so that RGB colors, brightness, gamma, etc ...
  • I've been wondering about the need for monitor calibration. I know all of the "pro-calibration" litany, and in the days of the CRT-monitor which changed its profile regularly over time this made ...
  • Thanks I'm using ACR 9 with PSCS6 and Win7 Nothing in lower left but "Image Size" and "Save" options There is a selection for Spot Removal Brush at top menu, but no "Visualize" option when I select ...
  • Created discussion thread Dust and Blemish Location/Removal
    I seem to recall a "Dust and Blemish Identifier/Removal" Action (or Preset) for PSCS6.  Something that would make spots more visible and perhaps even remove them.  Sort of like the "Viability" ...
  • I sometimes use Clarity to provide the finishing touche after editing in PSCS6 and the On1 family of plug-ins,  While I'm sure that PS and On1 can duplicate all that I get from Clarity, I find the ...
  • If refurb means "open it up and do some brain surgery" I'd be a bit cautious. However there is another approach.  I purchased my FZ1000 from B&H as a "previously owned" item.  B&H (a Panny ...
  • I use PS for the reasons cited.  If I need a LR editing adjustment I can generally get it from the ACR front-end to PS.
  • I used Nik for a while -particularly for B&W conversion.  I liked the U-Point technology, which was (is still is) fairly unique. Unfortunately Google does not really support Nik-- certainly not ...
  • Replied in On1 vs Topaz
    MrPB -- I think you made the right choice.  You'll never be bored again! Have fun!
  • On1 certainly has a masking capability, and its built into each module so you don't need to interrupt your workflow to use it. Easy for both editing ans easy extraction,   Full set of masking, ...
  • Replied in On1 vs Topaz
    I can relate to your comments regarding On1 vs Topaz vs Nik. I use them all, and find that On1 is the most convenient.  I use this PSCS6 as a host and like the fact that I can stack filters ...
  • What I like about On1 -- Well integrated modules; a ton of filters and presets, with the ability to customize them to your needs; able to to stack filters (effects), without returning to the host ...
