  • Hello Ray As a Zimbabwean (albeit now living in Kenya) I am overwhelmed by your wonderful painting of Cecil, a national icon of African wildlife. Naturally, I am outraged by this heinous crime. Ple ...

  • Thanks, Ray - will follow up.
  • Hi Ray - lovely work as always. I wonder if you can recommend a good video tutorial to show how to do smudging to your standard. I've had a penchant for trying this technique for some time and ...

  • Submitted a challenge entry Bardsey Island, north Wales
    The spirituality and sacredness of the island, its relative remoteness, and its legendary claim to be the burial site of King Arthur, have given it a special place in the cultural life of Wales, attracting artists, writers and musicians to its shores. (Wikipedia)

  • Greetings to you to from sunny Kenya and thanks for your comments. I may be wrong about added sharpening - there is just a certain "gritiness", for want of a better word that makes an image look a ...
  • Thank you for your response. I see your point about different programs displaying different renditions. It shouldn't happen but, evidently, they do. I don't carry out edits and resizing in ...
  • Thanks for your response. The image doesn't change nor does the size. I'm pretty sure something is changing, though!
  • Created discussions FastStone question
    I have been using FastStone Image Viewer for some years as I like many of its features. One thing that has been nagging me, though, is that in full screen review, all images seem to have some ...
  • I had this problem soon after I got my 5d3 a couple of years ago. As I live in a third world country, I had to make a local repair. I used a suitably sized hypodermic needle just big enough to ...

  • I've recently bought a Dell Precision M3800 which is essentially the same as the latest XPS15. I can report that there is no issue with the processor or overheating - I have yet to hear the fan ...
  • Hi there - I am about to order this laptop and my only small concern is the FHD 1920 x 1080 screen. I understand this is not an IPS screen. I haven't been able to find a review of this version so ...
