  • Thanks. It looks interesting. My only issue is speed! A 6000x4000dpi jpeg is taking 6 minutes or more on a new i5, 8gig laptop. Is that 'normal'? I use tiffs that are 150meg+ so speed is an issue ...
  • My understandng is that the 32bit v 64bit plugin issue is not a PSP/Corel issue but rather an issue for those writing the plugins. ie it wont work in 64bit because it hasn't been written for 64bit. ...
  • Mikes may guess is that most folks don't want to listen. Every program has a learning curve. I think the truth is that we/I can't afford the time to hit that curve and come to a realistic conclusion. ...
  • When you install PSP you have a choice of 32bit, 64bit or both. Installing both is easy and is no big deal. When you hit a 64bit issue simply using the 32bit version is no big deal. regards
  • From time to time I'll use PSP's noise reduction but when you have the DeNoise plugin with many more controls then it's hardly worth it. PSP's noise reduction isn't bad. It's just not as good as ...
  • No I doubt the program has much to do with the results. It's more a case of how you use the program. Any program. Photomatix is more than capable of natural/realistic results. Over cooked HDR is always
  • Here's an interview that my be of interest. http://phlearn.com/phlearn-interviews-adrian-sommeling regards
  • Depends on what you want to photograph. I had a D7000 now a D7100. 'Almost' always have my Tokina 12-24 attached. Either camera, the combination will give great results. The D7100 has a few more ...
  • Replied in HDR C&C
    Forgot to mention. If you use two HDR layers, one 'realistic' and a lower 'over cooked' one, then erase the top layer where you want to and you can get the best of both world. HDR in itself is ...

    Yes just put a bit more punch into the blacks. I can see detail. So if I can see it there's enough there to bring out. Maybe you need to 'cheat' a bit but that's ok. With you lower layer you can ...

    I like these types of industrial subjects. Well done. But I must add a couple of comments. I would like to see a touch more contrast. And I also think that there is more you could have 'milked' out ...
  • Wide angle would help but programs such as PSP and Photoshop have tools such as Warp which can make a difference. I still think that planning is the key. Almost impossible to line up random photos ...

    Ray one of the biggest 'got ya' is the light and perspective. Unless you 'make' your own photos it will be 'almost' impossible to find enough photos with lighting directions and perspectives that ...
  • Anyone considering trying PSP here's a web site that compares commands between PSP and Photoshop. I'm not aware of how up to date it is. http://video-books.net/paintshoppro/tutorials/photoshop_to_p ...
  • Steve I've never use an Adobe product so my comments come with that caveat. If you strip away all the non photographic tools in Photoshop how close to PSPx7 does it become? Rather close I guess. ...
  • He was featured in a recent magazine. Remember those? Made of paper with ink on it! From what I recall there is a lot of planing involved and lots of different images merged and edited. Nice work. ...
  • I can't help on the tutorials. The only comment I can make about Photomatix is not to over do the sliders. I would start with the 'Photographic' preset and play from there. Good luck. It's great ...
  • Replied in Oh, wow...
    Yup completely nuts. But nice photos just the same. regards
  • No other comment other than to say I had/have several Fujis. I wanted to jump to a dslr. So I choose Nikon. (D7000 then D7100). But if Fuji had a 'good' alternative at the time I may well still be ...

    Paul we are also Australians and will also be in the area in June/July. (We have our own vehicle and time is very flexible for us). We've been there before and have a few 'opinions' on what to see ...
