  • If this is the best file you have to work with, then a straight-up photo restoration won't get far.  Try some "artistic" filters or a program like Fotosketcher. The best I could manage with quick ...
  • For a subject like this, I think most people want to see every detail in those beautiful feathers, even at the cost of some added noise.  So I pushed the clarity, contrast and high-pass sharpening ...
  • You have set yourself the challenge to capture images in-camera.  That's great if it inspires you.  Artists define processes that are meaningful to them, and you have found yours.  More power to you. ...
  • Nice shot!  Three stops down at Jackson, you get ceiling tiles. Edited in an attempt to make a blurry P&S low-light snapshot look intentional ;-)
  • I tend to forget the EVF on my G1 exists. As an eyeglass wearer with bad astigmatism, heavy correction for nearsightedness, and now a progressive bifocal, there's no way I can see through a ...
  • Picasa (the free program you download onto a Windows or Mac computer) has an easy and versatile collage tool. Or you could visit one of the online photo editing sites: nothing to install, just ...
  • Harkening back to the OP's question, I'm cooking red beans & rice.  It's what you eat in New Orleans on Monday to recover from the indulgences (and expenses) of the weekend. Learn to cook honest ...
  • Sorry about that, I should have been more clear about my meaning in the prior post.  I do not think, nor did I say, that the bar charts mean nothing at all. They tell us what DPR visitors are ...
  • Replied in Bride for Play
    The closest I get to painting is running FotoSketcher.  I did smudge a few details where FotoSketcher left odd brushstrokes on her face.  Hmm... maybe I should investigate further the idea of ...
  • I really wish DPR would rename that site feature "DPR Articles Getting the Most Clicks."  Because that's all it measures.  There's nothing here about actual purchases or usage; it's only what ...
  • In my heedless youth, I often pulled all-nighters.  Sometimes working, sometimes partying.  Sometimes both at once.  Who needs sleep?  Eventually I decided to stop doing that.  Most of my friends ...
  • My cameras are almost always set to IA.  That's because I set them to IA when I put them away in their cases.  If the cat does something adorable or a tiger swallowtail shows up in the backyard ...
  • With landscapes I often start with a mid-tone contrast boost and then a highpass sharpen (17-pixel blur in this case).  Then I browse the G'MIC film emulation presets, which are a lazy way to see ...
  • Hey, that's a nifty technique!  Thanks.
  • You're already working with layers in Perfect Effects. They've simplified the interface so users don't realize it. Open a photo in PE and apply 4 or 5 effects to it (remember to click + so the next ...
  • As a sometime musician and actor, I "beg" to differ. While the end result may be of questionable value, these people are not begging. They are working for tips. Since you evidently enjoyed their ...
  • The camera and the PP are merely tools for getting the image you want and communicating what you want to say.  Sometimes the little seaside town is a lovely place to visit.  Sometimes not so much. ...
  • When you download photos from G+, you are downloading the edited versions, not the original files. You could copy an original photo in Picasa, make edits on the copy, and then upload both copy and ...
  • Well, I tried that color correction technique where you average all the pixels in the image, fill a layer with that color, invert the color and set the layer mode to overlay.  (Is there a name for ...
  • I like this solution best. IMHO the people in the background give the photo a sense of scale and depth and they are an asset to the image.  Whereas the folks in the foreground are too much of a ...
