  • When checking sharpness, always use 100% zoom. Everything else is just a crude approximation.
  • If you really wanted to make it a once in a lifetime trip, Juarez might do it.  Or perhaps Rio, or any place in Afganistan.
  • Well, we don't know, do we?  Which is why I asked the question.  Seems like someone would know for sure if the proper permissions were aquired.  Anyway, I'm done with this on my end.  Sorry for ...
  • Matt Kloskowski has been working with On1 recently.  Google him if you don't know who he is.  He used to work with Scott Kelby.
  • I think that varies a lot by company.  But even the most technical customer support people don't know the answers all the time, and have to defer their  questions to the design engineers and ...
  • If you've already made your mind up, that's fine.  Do whatever you please. It is true that ACR and the LR Develop module have essentially the same capabilities (although there are some minor ...
  • The fact that the money goes to a charity probably does make it less likely that you'd get in  trouble for it, although I don't really know how I'd feel if I were the photographer and found out ...
  • I don't have a solution for your problem.
  • I think you are assuming too much about the technical support personnel.  Typically those are entry level positions staffed by people who partied more in college than the design engineers who know ...
  • This is very cool, but it brings up an issue I've wondered about. Presumably you didn't take the original picture that your painting was based on.  Are there copyright issues?  Especially since ...
  • In addition to what others have said, a few points: 1. Make sure that LR is updated to the latest version.  The "scan the disk" dialog sounds like a feature that Adobe added last year, but then had ...
  • 16 bit TIFF is almost as good as a raw file, to the point that you almost have to construct a targeted test case, and look very closely to tell the difference.  You may want to correct any white ...
  • I was curious, so I checked.  The D810 was supported first in LR5.6, so I have no idea why 5.7 didn't work.  However, the D810A wasn't supported until LR6 or LR CC.  Just in case that is the ...
  • I got Perfectly Clear as part of a software and training bundle last year.  My impression was that the adjustments possible from the tool were exceedingly "subtle", and not worth the time spent in ...
  • The surface pro is more like a notebook in the shape of a tablet.  It runs Win10, so there should be no issue running PS or LR, etc. I suspect the problem the OP originally had was that LR 5.7 ...
  • You have to wonder how much drinking was done before the voting. Another one that caught my eye was best tripod - a Manfrotto.  Huh?
  • Frankly, I think the hair adds to the picture.  I'd leave it alone.
  • JPEG is certainly a big part of the problem, but if you increase contrast too much, artifacts that were there, but largely unnoticeable suddenly show themselves front and center.  You may need to ...
  • If you look at the Lensrentals FAQ, in case of theft, they may require an investigation before clearing your liability.  Also, they specifically require a police report to be filed.  There are ...
  • That was a long time ago, but I don't recall having problems with 5.71, and I thought it fixed a bug or two.
