  • That's absolutely correct. When you "buy" software you're really paying for a license to use it for some specified period of time. In most cases, that period is indefinite and that's called a ...
  • I believe you'd be okay if you instead use P (Program) mode.  Or, set a safe shutter speed and aperture in M mode and then use Auto ISO.
  • Maybe you were using one of the basic/green modes for some of the shots?  That might account for the camera switching to JPEG.
  • Agreed that it should be easier, but the penalty fee probably is justified because Adobe provides a discount for the commitment versus month-to-month. When you cancel prior to honoring your ...
  • Replied in Realism
    The issue, in my opinion, isn't the number of pixels. It's that on a screen we're looking at an image that is only visible because of light passing through it. In the real world, we're looking at ...
  • We view the natural world by reflected light, so I believe prints can be a better representation of reality. On the other hand, we've grown up enjoying movies and television, so screen and ...
  • There's quite a bit more to a photograph than just resolution and pixel density. Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I don't really enjoy the experience of viewing photos on a screen.  For that ...
  • There is a Tone Curve where you can drag the white and black points. I can't say whether this is exactly the same as what you're doing in LR because I don't use LR.  I especially don't know what ...
  • You should be able to use Windows Easy Transfer. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/transfer-files-settings-from-another-computer
  • I was with you until that final paragraph, which is very simplistic, to say the least. DxO OP obviously doesn't offer enough that would benefit your personal workflow to offset the lack of speed. ...
  • Perfect Effects 9 has several presets that might help without requiring masking manually, and they can be stacked for greater effect. Darken Sky Sky Enhancer Polarizer Graduated Blue
  • Even when sharpening is set to zero, you're still getting the baseline sharpening as defined by Adobe.  This is different from the default adjustable sharpening, which is simply a suggested ...
  • I work around that by keeping the number of files per folder relatively small. Actually, I try to do that with everything, not just photos. Organizing into subfolders helps me to find what I'm ...
  • There really is no such thing as a sooc raw image. The job of the raw converter is to interpret the raw data from the sensor in such a way as to produce an actual image that can be viewed. ...
  • I didn't say you disagreed about blown highlights. If you had accurately quoted me and kept the discussion limited to the actual topic then we could have discussed this intelligently. But hissy ...
  • The subject line of the post you replied to was Blown highlights, and that was understood to be part of the discussion. I was only attempting to put into context what I'd said about highlights in ...
  • You exaggerate the frequency and severity of the issue, as proven by the excellent results people obtain daily from Canon DSLRs. But when it does become important, the issue exists in the shadows, ...
  • The panel doesn't care, but you do if you want a specific size.  For example, if you want to ensure a 5-inch image on a 96ppi display then that's what you resize to.  Sure you could do the math ...
  • Replied in Blown highlights
    Unless a camera is faulty, blown highlights are caused by the photographer, not the camera. We can discuss recoverable shadow detail, and that's a valid topic, but I don't think there's a hardware ...
  • I mostly agree, but not necessarily in every case.  For example, to display an image when you have a specific target device in mind, dpi can be relevant. On the other hand, ppi has no real meaning ...
