  • For portrait quality soft light the source of light needs to be diffuse, it needs to be as large ar or larger than the subject, and that diffuse source of light is normally limited to subject to ...
  • Only PSD files with a transparent background will work with Lightroom.  That is why I said to use PSD watermarks. To avoid pixelization start with your watermark image bigger than the final size.  ...
  • Had to fix a typing error above. Seems the older I get the more my fingers are becoming independent, typing what they want, not what I want.;-)
  • As Johanfoto said, if you shoot RAW, and you should, then WB isn't as big a problem. The post processing software will initially apply what ever WB the camera was set for but it doesn't cause any ...
  • Looks like it is working well.  the uneven lighting you have in the third image gives it a nice 3D appearance. I have a cheap xenon macro ring flash but the problem with it is that the entire ring ...
  • Yes, it works. As I said in my earlier post, don't forget that the front of the subjects are lit by the open sky, basically they are in shade. They would only be receiving about 2 stops less light ...
  • If you can't see a shift in tones where the two halves join then apparently the difference in WB wasn't enough to cause a problem, or the program somehow modified the WB of the images to eliminate ...
  • Thanks for correcting me. I didn't have Photoshop open to test the commands and misremembered the swap color command.
  • Replied in PSD vs TIF
    There are some editing programs that can be linked to Lightroom or Photoshop that only work with JPGs or TIFFs, not with PSDs.  That is one good reason for working with TIFFs instead of PSD.  ...
  • Glad to hear that there is a happy ending to your quest.
  • Without know what you want the lens for any answer would just be a guess, Please explain why you want a 30mm-35mm f/1.8 lens, what you want to use it for, then perhaps someone can offer some ...
  • Never forget that if you have a subject with their back to the sun that the front of the subject is in the shade, the front is still lit by the overhead sky. Typically the front is receiving only ...
  • +1 That is the only way I dodge and burn.  A single layer and if you go too far just switch colors and go back over it to lessen the effect. Think of what you do when you draw something with a ...
  • DNG is a RAW format. Basically a RAW to DNG converter simple repacks the RAW image data into a file with a different format. DNG is Adobe's attempt at an universal RAW image storage format. It is ...
  • There is a free Watermark Photoshop add-on from Thomas Zagler you might try. Thomas Zagler - Watermark CC You do have to have an active Creative Cloud Application in order to download the add-on. O ...
  • Bingo! That is the option you want if you are importing more than once from the same memory card without removing photos after importing them to your computer. An example would be if you are on a ...
  • As much as I love and use FastStone for JPGs I would never use it for RAW/DNG conversion. For RAW/DNG files I want a program that has a proper built-in RAW/DNG RAW converter, a program that will ...
  • Looking closely at the Haoge arm it looks like you will need to drill and tap it for a 1/4"x20 bolt, but that is a pretty easy thing to do. Please show us the result when you finish.
  • If you can load and work on the image by using Elements File>Open command it is a problem with Photoshop Elements Organizer , not Photoshop Elements. Check your Elements Organizer Import settings ...
  • If a date based image storage scheme works for you then that is great. I envy you having the discipline to fully keyword all your images. Unfortunately not keywording as much as I should is one of ...
