  • Monitor calibration is very important, easily among the most important things you can do for your photography processing. Unfortunately, there isn't a heck of a lot you can do with a Macbook ...
  • Replied in hornet (nt)
  • Rather generally, google is your friend. But here's a quick summary. You profile your camera for a given typical lighting (usually daylight, maybe also incandescent if you shoot a lot with such ...
  • You are confusing obtaining the proper WB/color for a particular image with profiling the camera. They are two different things. -- gollywop http://g4.img-dpreview.com/D8A95C7DB3724EC094214B212FB1F ...
  • Well, I suppose it's always better to have a separate profile made for each shot, but I certainly haven't found that to be anything like worth the effort. One or two camera profiles made for your ...
  • The purpose of the calibration is to measure and profile the colors of the chart when illuminated by some light source. For a 65K° source, the sun as described in the instructions is an excellent ...
  • Now you have a chance to switch to another piece of software. After you get used to the idea, you might actually find you've moved up in the world. I wouldn't doubt it. It's the prospect of change ...
  • You're welcome, Bat. JPEGs can indeed be edited. I am often amazed, given all the restrictions that the JPEG rendering imposes, just how much can be done with them in post-processing. With each ...
  • steephill, I, and others have mentioned making a custom camera color profile for LR/ACR. If you have the ColorChecker Passport, you can do this either using their own software, which likely came ...
  • There isn't. The initial rendering of your file in LR is with the default settings, which, except for white-balance, do not honor your camera's settings (saturation, contrast, sharpness, tone ...
  • I didn't say they were concerned with DR; I think you're right that they are not. That was not my point. My point is that the moment quite likely hasn't been captured: they most likely have at best ...
  • Well, sort of capturing the moment. If the DR is very high, it is quite unlikely they will capture the moment if they have little knowledge of how to shoot it or ill-suited gear. The moment as ...
  • Dear OP Batzorig, You've gotten some baleing-wire answers (all good), but you're real problem is not knowing how to use LR/ACR. They work virtually the same. And you've got to get a good book and ...
  • Replied in Yep.
    I'll join the "I Agree" crowd. I also am among those that use the native sensor aspect. But, when taking the shot I have some idea (but only a preliminary "some") as to what the final crop might ...
  • Unfortunately, you're just spitting into the wind in answering this guy – as is anyone who doesn't agree exactly with what he believes. He'll just come back with an umpteenth iteration of his ...
  • You've overused that "only irony" response. It appears to be the only thing you can say to those who join in anew and who don't happen to agree with your fatuous point of view. p.s. your signature ...
  • Oh, come along, mar2jeter. That is a preposterously presumptuous comment that can only be made in complete ignorance of the people who populate these forums. There are many here, to be sure, who ...
  • I would imagine there are indeed lots of professionals on these forums – but not necessarily professional photographers. That's actually neither here nor there. I've met many a professional ...
