  • This is a fun thread!  You guys spend time in more interesting places than I do ...
  • I agree, there are limits to how much you can crop and still expect decent IQ.  There's always a trade-off and we all have to find the balance that works for us.  There are times I'd rather wind ...
  • I agree that we've long since passed the point where the number of pixels matters for printing or for viewing on anything like a normal-sized monitor screen. But I like to photograph wildlife.  And ...
  • The problem is right there; you just said it.  She wants you to spend more time with her , and not out pursuing your own solo hobbies. People have very different ideas of how much togetherness is ...
  • Do your raw files contain enough detail in the shadows and highlights that you can work from a single photo? Or do you need to stack bracketed exposures? See if anything here is useful: ...
  • Some people enjoy the sport of capturing the image they want in camera, and they prefer to do little or no PP. Some people enjoy PP as part of the creative process. And some people are primarily ...
  • My little ZS20 does a good job in daylight. I don't like to haul a tripod into the woods, so I settle for handheld even though it's hard to get a steady shot at the far end of the zoom (especially ...
  • Photography has so many different purposes. What's "legit" in one context might be "cheating" in another. If your goal is to accurately document what the sky looked like, then you're working under ...
  • Replied in URL to try
    There are downloadable versions. Sort of. The Film Emulator site is based on color lookup tables developed by Patrick David and released to the free/open-source software community. (thanks, Pat!) T ...
  • Ah, I see you already have PE.  Might as well download the 30-day trial of B&W and see what's different.  I'm kinda curious myself now ;-)
  • I agree with Bob, at this price it's hard to argue and you might as well get the entire suite.  I haven't tried B&W, but I think Perfect Effects and Perfect Layers are very well-designed ...
  • Very true.  I use UFRaw + GIMP as my normal workflow.  The 8-bit color depth in GIMP's current stable release has never been a problem for me, since any major highlight or shadow recovery takes ...
  • GIMP might not be the right software for what you're trying to do. It does not work with RAW files and it was not designed for quick/routine photo edits. The classic Adobe workflow is to develop ...
  • I feel your pain, and it has nothing to do with technology.  Your problem is expectations.  Somewhere along the way, you stopped taking pictures for fun and decided it was important to get them ...
  • A fine cat with a grand pink nose.  Worthy of an oil painting.  You know, lately I've been making an effort to photograph my friends' aging pets.  It's a simple thing to do, but those shots can ...
  • PSD is a reliable, easy dtp program, well designed for beginners and families. The project templates are the most useful feature since they can save you a lot of time on page layout for basic ...
  • This looks like a job for Freaky Details. http://www.madkeanephotography.com/fad/ I think any method for increasing local contrast will get you headed in the right direction. http://www.cambridgein ...
  • Way back when we were running VisiCalc on Apple II computers, my coworkers would debate the relative merits and risks of proprietary software vs open standards. This is the same conversation again. ...
  • Such a cutie.
  • Zenpmd, what's your operating system?  Darktable is a fine LR alternative for Mac and Linux.  If you're on Windows, look at RawTherapee and Photivo.  Photivo is so complex it frightens me (and I ...
