  • Take a look at the Helicon Focus site - there's an article there that compares results using a macro rail and using focus change between frames.  They also sell remote control software to automate ...
  • Replied in DxO OpticsPro
    Since we don't know what your requirements are, we can't answer that. Read the comparison on the web site - hey I'll make it easy and give you the link - then you can answer the question yourself: ...
  • I've used ALCE for years, it's probably my most-used plug-in and it's brilliant for controlled local contrast enhancement. Yes it's a bit slow and you need to be careful about using it with images ...
  • Since you have Lightroom, look up or search for "Lightroom metadata template".  Lightroom (and Adobe Bridge or PhotoMechanic and others) let you set up a template with the metadata that you want ...
  • Once you know the trick it's really easy. Simply open Photoshop. After you have opened and registered Photoshop by itself, you will have no further problem. I guess the reason is that Bridge is a ...
  • OK, I'm not trying to defend Adobe, but as far as I am aware, any CC-compatible software that uses plug-ins does now install them in the common folder.  It's only older plug-ins that were ...
  • As stated above, Adobe have provided a way to carry plug-ins from one version to the next. You have chosen not to implement the perfectly simple solution. I'm not a huge fan of Adobe, but do you ...
  • Don't move the plug-ins to the version folder, move them to the common folder.  I upgraded to 2017 and all my plug-ins were exactly where they had been because I followed Adobe's advice when ...
  • Google 'smartphone control canon dslr'. Take your pick. Easy
  • There is nowhere near enough dynamic range in your shot to even need to use HDR. A single RAW image would be enough, if properly post-processed. Go find a real example with high DR. You need a ...
  • I reckon you are over-thinking the whole thing without actually taking some pictures, processing them and then understanding the results you get. My objective is usually to get an image from the ...
  • This is confusing. 2 stops is greater than 1 stop so if anything, 2 stops would be overkill, not 1 stop. In any case the determining factor is the DR (Dynamic Range) of the scene. If the DR is ...
  • Replied in disappointment
    One possibility is that you are using a CPL filter to solve a problem that it can't really help you with, i.e. distance haze. You can reduce that a bit but you will get better results with ...
  • Either you're confused or you've managed to confuse me. What you've got is a normal type of ball head with a separate panning function like many other ball heads. If you want to do a panorama with ...
  • Replied in Not me
    I have been using OnOne (now touted as On1) Photo Suite (now Photo) for many years and versions, but I had my fingers burned when I pre-ordered On1 Photo 10. That was simply a new presentation of ...
  • Take a look at Sunwayfoto. Lots of choice, good quality, at a reasonable price.
  • Replied in Logical solution
    Surely the logical solution is to put an Arca-Swiss clamp onto your monopod? Or am I misunderstanding your inquiry? It's kind of the whole point of using a quick-release plate on your camera, so ...
  • You can force Ps to work in a straight line: I assume you are using the clone stamp and you have a consistent "line" that you can clone into your chosen edge. Select your source, click on the point ...
  • Replied in Focus Stacking
    If you already have Photoshop, it will do focus stacking. Google "Focus stacking in Photoshop" for tutorials.
  • Fair enough, but Adobe makes no distinction between OS's (whatever derogatory term you wish to use) in their instructions. It's up to you what you decide to do.
