filibuster's recent activity

  • Here is one strange phenomena I found with SoftMaker (free). I do energy spreadsheets for myself and 15 other customers, and switched to SoftMaker when MSOffice failed to run after the latest ...
  • Another +1.
  • Relatively confined to the back garden since early March, but with some astonishing weather and bedding plants arriving just about every alternate day, doesn’t mean to say I’ve had much time to ...
  • The caterpillar was having a late breakfast, so it was a matter of persistence. The camera was tripod mounted. Then I just reamed off the stacks shooting if I recall, approximately 200 images, in ...
  • You’ve had a few days to mull it all over. Did you arrive at a conclusion? I found that the largest file size I could work with, that enabled ‘Pyramid Max Contrast’ was 5850 x 3900 pixels ...
  • And I, scarcely a couple of hours ago, have uploaded a slideshow created in PTE. Here for your perusal if interested. K If it ain't broke, fix it until it is! filibuster (Bromsgrove, ...
  • I have the same experience with the Canon M6 MkII. (You didn’t mention the camera you use, but it may have a bearing because of file size). My experience, seemed to relate to the file pixel dimensions.
  • Hi Doc. I use my own personal script created for Corel’s Paint Shop Pro. It applies a modest amount of tone mapping to lift the shadows. A tad of vibrancy to the more muted hues. And a pinch of ...
  • Replied in Linux flavours
    I’ll argue for Matay :-D On account of it sounding posher than Mait !!
  • Replied in Linux flavours
    And mine happens to be Mint Mate. I only mention it, because no one else has. This was the first Linux I had installed some years back, and so pleased, have not found the inclination to try ...
  • Hi and thanks for your enquiry Sean and Simon. Office 2019 Pro was my version. And the update was courtesy of the offered Windows Update, sourced from ‘Settings’ >> ‘Update & Security’. ‘WhatsApp’ ...
  • 2004 was not a joyous experience for me. The installation went peachy enough, but then a serious problem. My version of Microsoft Office simply would not run. I switched to Libre Office. The ...
  • When evaluating a shot like this from mikee_j. Should due consideration be given to the in-camera ‘Picture Style’ setting? For example, here is a shot left-hand image ‘Picture Style – Neutral’ and ...
  • Replied in Greetings Ed
    192 shots on the card. But all I needed was just the one cluster of 16. Worth the time taken I reckon, even just for the a single frame to post for my adoring fans! :-D:-D
  • M6mk2+18-150mm kitted with extension tubes. 16 images focus stacked in 'CombineZP'.
  • Harold, your images are always visually stunning. But this is on a different planet, yes?
  • Replied in R2D2
    Always good to hear from you R2. The garden at Filibuster Towers, has been enjoying the benefit of remarkably good weather here in central U.K. Most of my colour is in pots and planters, and the ...
  • This beast has taken a shine to my Buddleia bush, so it is well nourished. I gather it will progress into a Mullein moth, which on my ‘Google’ searches, is about as drab as they come. Yet the ...
  • Captivating images as always Ed. My M6 came with the 18-150 as you may well recall. It is now housed on the M6II, and I have not felt a need to keep spending, other than adding a couple of ...
  • Replied in My try
    Thanks for the input and comment Ken & R2. The focus stacking feature was one of the factors that drew me to the MK II. It is very useful tool, and furthermore, a fun feature to deploy and ...
