  • I do like InkPress Rag Cool & Warm Tone a lot, and there's more choice of sizes. The 100% cotton aspect is v. important to me.
  • Replied in Carbonite...
    With your equipment, I really couldn't say precisely! I think it may also vary with the type of file. Just run it day and night and you'll soon find out.
  • Replied in Carbonite...
    Yes they will. It's just that with so much data it's going to take weeks for you to upload it. Fortunately it will work in the background, and pick up where it left off if you power off.
  • My D: drive is a mere 89GB. I decided to backup with Carbonite because a v. old smallish local usb disk failed. I have used Carbonite for years for several TBs of graphics without incident: when I ...
  • Just avoid Asus Cloud like the plague: cheap in theory, impossibly expensive in time and labour. Took TEN DAYS with constant interruptions to backup my D:\Drive (docs. no programmes or graphics), ...
  • Rather you than me if you're thinking of doing it yourself. My method is much easier at my end than that would be. And still looks marvellous.
  • Yes. NO glue between laminated print and plexi glazing, plexi is just plonked on top of print with no gap. Not the cheapest, but really effective in the long run. I can't print 20 x 30 or 24 x 36 ...
  • For a really big print, I frequently put my mounted-on-foamboard-and-laminated print under anti-UV plexi into a plain modern-art frame. Print is thus protected from atmospheric pollutants and ...
  • Replied in DXO questions
    Clarity: Clearview is the thing you are looking for. I find 50% is a good starting-point, does wonders for skies with clouds, as well as for stonework, makes for some graininess in some areas. I ...
  • My old but v. good laptop never gave me any sort of trouble this way. It was my big desktop that jibbed. Frankly I believe that since I had tried nothing more for a number of days, it was just a ...
  • Well, as the OP I say, people, rejoice with me. Having tried every suggested avenue to no avail, I decided to give up the unequal struggle. Just now the whole problem has solved itself without any ...
  • It's a week since I posted this: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4300327?page=6#forum-post-61411173 with an up-to-date link to the DxO Forum.
  • You should definitely take in the fact that the cheap printer is only ever cheap initially. Broadly speaking, you will spend less of a small fortune on inks if you buy a bigger one, with much ...
  • 'Tis mystery all ... But in  my experience the same effect may be observed with the strong yellow-green bias (indeed entirely missing wavelengths) of all the kinds of fluorescent.
  • I think what I am saying (and all my Sigma experiments are years old as I say) is that unuseful light is what the meter sees but which doesn't illuminate as much as the meter thinks it does. My aim ...
  • My test is years old, but if you will look hard at these four frames made over a couple of days https://www.flickr.com/photos/22905474@N06/sets/72157623126455146 of a tungsten-lit space you will ...
  • Every so often I see this said/written. And every so often I have to repost my findings with Sigma sensors, e.g. here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/35948286 The only difference from my ...

  • No gamble, it's out.
  • I do know that: just my little joke when frustrated by anything Microsoft.:-)
