  • Sam:   For what it's worth, I think you are absolutely correct. A company that advertises "support" should know the answer to your question, or admit that they do not.  It should not be your job to ...
  • In my experience, tech answers from On1 will be fairly superficial, and a long time in coming.  Most answers (if you receive any at all) will be boilerplate.
  • Created discussion thread On1-10.5 Upgrade
    Advertising for On1-10.5 indicates that this upgrade needs to be purchased. However, Release Notes implies that 10.5 is a free upgrade for On1-10 owners. Is this correct ?  Anyone upgraded yet?  ...
  • Let me see if I understand the impact of this On1 Fall release Right now I review thumbs based on RAWs in On1-Browse.  I transfer selected image to PSCS6, and then to ACR which does the RAW ...
  • CS6 not PS6 ! Before I discovered that flattening the layers would solve my problem, I simply selected the transparency pixels of the canvas (by selecting the Inverse of the Image) and used the ...
  • Since you are using PS, seems easiest to do this using the "Image Size" and "Canvas Size" controls under the "Image" menu.  Perhaps someone has already mentioned this. First open the Image Size ...
  • After taking a coffee break and playing with PS a bit I learned that I had forgotten to flatten the image before trying to extend the canvas.  All seems OK after correcting this dumb oversight. Sor ...
  • Created discussion thread PS6 Annoyance
    Recently used PS6 "Canvas Size" to extend the canvas size for a jpeg image.  Found that the menu's color option for the canvas was grayed out and the result was a non-color transparent-pixel ...
  • Lots of stitching programs out there. Try Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) from Microsoft Research. http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ICE/ A truly amazing stitching ...
  • Its mostly a question of how complex your selection (or mask) is, and how much time you are willing to spend refining it. The obvious example is a tree with lots of bare limbs against a bland sky.  ...
  • Replied in On1 Software
    I've used the On1 stuff for a couple of years, and am currently using On1-Photo 10.  A standard part of my workflow -- select image in On1Browse, transfer to PS for RAW conversion in ACR, basic ...
  • Thanks to all for the info.  I'll give RT a try, and report back.
  • I've generally been using ACR for RAW conversion before editing in PSCS6 and assorted plug-ins.  Works fine for me, but your mention of latest RT sounds intriguing.   A few questions: 1.  Is RT ...
  • Consensus seems to be that Wacom "small" tablet is best for photo editing on 22" monitor. Looks like more than one "Wacom small".  Just to be clear, is the lower priced  "Wacom Intuos Photo Small, ...
  • No list that I am aware of. The bugs (like missing graphics in Browse, or inability to "Send to" some apps, or occasional crashes when masking) are easy to deal with on an ad hoc basis.
  • I find On1 to be s a useful addition to my workflow, but several bugs remain in latest release.  Fortunately there are work-arounds for most of these. Hopefully improvement will continue within ...
  • I think Topaz DeNoise is the best NR out there.  Easy to use, generally effective. Note that except for "stand-alone" and "batch" modes, DeN6 is the same as DeN5
  • This is the way I work: RAW conversion and basic editing in ACR, followed by selective editing in PS with NR in DeN plugin (as required) Then, further stylization using plug-in (Topaz or On1), ...
  • Replied in Guitar program
    This brings back memories.  Haven't heard the words "Picture Cooler" or Ronnie in more than 5 years.  Used PC a lot back then; wrote some masking guide included with product.  Then "advertising" ...
  • Thanks for the video.  I'll take a look. In answer to your question -- I shoot in RAW fromat and I convert results using "Adobe Camera Raw"
