  • No, I think you are really the only one that seemed to understand what I was asking. Obviously, I know how to feather a selection any myriad of ways. But, how do you reduce the feathering. Is ...
  • When I make a selection in Photoshop, how do I reduce the feather? There are several ways to seemingly change the feather, but I can only figure out how to add feather using those options. I tried ...
  • I noticed that on Amazon. I wonder why that is? It's not a price issue since more expensive cameras have the free returns signifier like seemingly virtually all products shipped and sold by Amazon ...
  • Well, you can't just sua sponte mention a Latin abbreviation and expect me to know it. I agree that technical skill and artistic prowess are far more important than which software one uses. But, ...
  • Created question thread Two Photoshop Questions
    When I am working on 14-bit raw files in Lightroom and send multiple images to Photoshop as layers, are the layers each a 16-bit TIF essentially? I want to maintain as much quality as possible ...
  • What does prn mean? Even some images focused at the hyperfocal point could very much use Sharpen AI's mode for out-of-focus images on parts of it because what a default DOF calculator considers in ...
  • Created discussion thread Sharpening Question
    I have a photo that is focused well without motion blur. I plan to print it very large. I will use Gigapixel AI at the end of my processing. Before that, I want to sharpen it properly. Should I do ...
  • Does that tool match histograms between photos? I have been looking for a way to copy a histogram from one photo of the same composition to another.
  • Yeah, I would too. I remember a video of a tattoo laser that damaged the sensor. The laser wasn't even pointing at the camera--the damage happened from the reflection off the skin. Moral of the ...
  • Based on the shadow, it looks like you shot this in harsh sunlight. The main rock looks a little overexposed, which creates the washed out look you don't want. If your phone metered for the whole ...

  • Okay, I'll try that next time I'm testing the lens. I didn't even think of that. Wouldn't the photo look distorted if the wrong distortion correction was applied? I would expect that a ...
  • Replied in Not a problem
    I appreciate the explanations about aberration. But I still don't understand why changing the aperture causes the focus point to shift enough that stopping down actually makes part of the image ...
  • Created question thread Is this field curvature?
    During the tests of my Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 E-Mount lens on a Sony A7Riv, I observed what seems to be some significant field curvature at 50mm. Below is a test photo (full resolution OOC jpeg) at ...
  • Interesting. For me, I noticed focus shift to the foreground rather than background. I wish they said more about it and how bad it was. Like, did stopping down actually make the foreground more ...
  • That's what I thought. I don't understand how the aperture could affect focus plane, but nothing else changed between shots. I was testing a Tamron 150-500mm f/5-6.7 on a Sony A7Riv when I ...
  • While testing a telephoto zoom lens for sharpness using a stone wall in my house, I focused (with back button autofocus), took a shot wide open, and then took a shot with the aperture stopped down ...
