Richard Frederick's recent activity

  • It could be, in the future, that museums will count digital displays as their essential property in the same way they consider buildings, display walls, special lighting in today's world.  I would ...
  • We are all lucky to have today's heavily electronic digital cameras. However: Electronic cameras will not age as well as the mechanical models from yester-year.  One special problem is the removal ...
  • Thank you for the tip.
  • I, also, am interested in this question.  I have used PS for years and there are a few PS features I rely on that are probably not available in LR. PS had a feature called Picture Package that made ...
  • The print requires a coating of varnish, supplied by BC.  The last I knew (haven't ordered in a while) the only varnish that works on the metal prints is matt. I find their products to be very good ...
  • Replied in Question
    Are we discussing monitors for use in producing work for other display platforms - the usual function of a "monitor," or are we looking at the high resolution "monitors" as end display devices?

  • Replied in From an Amateur
    I am an amateur because I don't earn money from photography or printing. From an equipment standpoint, one large difference is that a pro plans his session and packs up what he needs for the job ...
  • I have a home printer (Epson P5000) and I print a number of images supplied to me by friends.  Most of these people have images of loved ones, sometimes passed on, and almost all taken by cell ...

  • Created question thread Circuit Board Longevity
    Compared to digital, I purchased far fewer film cameras over any given period.  I started in 1967 with Nikon and the earliest purchases were functionally close to later purchases.  Plus, they were ...
  • Years ago I had a 4880 and a local shop was an authorized Epson repair facility.  That shop closed down about five years ago and the only repair option is as you described.  For my P5000, I ...
  • I have had a similar experience with FedEx - except worse. For several shipments I have had FedEx state a delivery date or report "Out for Delivery," and then report a new delivery date.  This has ...
