  • 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.
  • copying the plug-ins to the plug-in folder of the new version will work for now but you will have to repeat this every time a new upgrade/version comes out. You need to copy them to a folder in ...
  • Interesting question. I did the same comparison. Original is from a Canon EOS 1Ds3 @ ISO 1600, Image processed in Adobe RAW with no sharpening and basic luminance/color NR adjusted by hand and ...
  • That's my understanding. It also means that the plug-in providers will have a single target for installation instead of having to create a new update (like OnOne have just done)  simply to ...
  • Apparently Adobe have changed the location of plug-ins to make them consistent in future and to avoid having to copy files every time the application changes. What you have done will work for this ...
  • The image circle is larger than a normal lens as you say, but you cannot "see" the entire image circle because of the lens mount (which is what I think you are asking). The portion of the image ...
  • Replied in Briony
    Briony, the upgrade process doesn't just seem complicated, it definitely is complicated. More complicated than any other software I use. I was looking at your new Landscape Pro software, but I ...
  • Yes. Try the Manfrotto spares site . Look for spares for your model of tripod leg.
  • Replied in Tom
    Don't feel bad. Anthropics' upgrade process is the most complex and badly-designed process I have ever seen for any software. I got into a real mess with v11 to v12 upgrade to the point where I ...
  • Well, I've downloaded it, installed and used it, and it's right there on the front page of the DxO website, so I don't understand what your problem is. Can you be more specific about exactly what ...
