  • So the easiest solution would be to light your shoot to stop light hitting the backdrop. If you use flags to prevent light spill there will be a lot less clean-up to do in post. There is in ...
  • While I agree that printing them out and shuffling them around is good, you might also try the book making software from one of the many online photo-book printers. Not necessarily for the final ...
  • You can certainly hire someone to edit it for you. However I am pretty sure they are going to do the job by asking you... "Why these 80 images? What is the story that binds them together into a ...
  • If that panel isn't showing click on the toggle arrow on the right. If the problem is that the wrong options are showing choose from the drop down list on the left.
  • Nothing else is important.
  • I agree with Karen that there is a market for anything. How big that market is I couldn't say. Personally I wouldn't buy one because, if I was in the market to buy a photo print (which I do) I ...
  • +1 to TacticDesigns post. In Lightroom you edit once output many times in whatever format you need. Even better you can save Export Presets... so if you regularly export for a particular web forum ...
  • Yes It is for people who want to edit mainly on tablets/mobile or don't have much local storage (but are willing to pay for over-priced cloud storage). If you use classic as your primary version ...
  • The plugin can be found at http://www.lightroomfocuspointsplugin.com/ Two important points to note.... 1. if you focus and recompose the active focus point will show as where you moved it too, ...
  • Replied in My brain
    I did a all of those... but I think at it's most basic I spent time thinking about what I wanted to shoot and why I wanted to shoot it. I do way more pre-visualisation and seldom shoot random ...
  • People can memorize music after hearing it just once, others pictures or text. I can't memorize my own phone number. My cousin can accurately list all the food ingredients in whatever she is ...
  • Replied in My brain
    None of my camera gear improved my photography, it just made it easier to achieve certain images. My brain, on the other-hand, dramatically improved my photography.
  • But it's not illegal and doesn't violate the terms of service. It is perfectly legal for me to download my photos from FB and the ToS make clear that if you don't have the rights you shouldn't do so. ...
  • Ultimately you get what you pay for. Online photobook companies are good but they are not top of the range. The book I had done by Mixbooks was very very good, colours were excellent even from my ...
  • It is no different than, for example, Facebook's download button. It allows me to download my own photos but it also allows others to do the same. The fact that you are able to make a copy of ...
  • Replied in Storage is cheap
    When I set up my NAS I realised that buying bigger drives would work our cheaper that buying small and then replacing them.I have 14TB of space (all my DVDs and music live on there too.) I keep all ...
  • Or rather clarifies. Seems that, yes, while the terms of service do allow Instagram the right to sub-license that does not mean that they actually grant such a sub-license. They have stated ...
  • Non destructive means that it does not alter the original source file.
  • None of which changes my answer. A piece of software won't help when some mad person is in your face. You either learn to handle the moment and deal with the person or you stop shooting in the ...
  • 1. Not heard of any (consumer level) product that automatically blurs faces. 2. A man had a go at you for taking photos of him when you weren't . Blurring faces after the fact won't stop idiots ...
