PRISCILLA TURNER's recent activity

  • By the same token, it's MUCH more sensible to be lefthanded when you want to write in a Semitic language.
  • I learnt the basics from my father in the 1950s on one of those, glass plates, bellows, rising front and all. It was HIS architect father's basic instrument. My father did the development for me. ...
  • That certainly holds for my 2200 using the modern rebrands.
  • https://matshop.com/mats/single-8-ply-archival-mats-solid-color-core/ Or look in matshop.ca if north of the Line.
  • These two DP1 shots were made in quick succession from my balcony handheld (so not in register) with almost identical lighting conditions, the first with the converter, the second just plain and ...
  • See my 2014 postings on W/A converters: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53832007 The Nikon W/C 75 has always been the only option AFAIK if decent IQ was wanted. But I haven't tried it on ...
  • Have a heart, I'm in my 81st year. Been learning English and other languages ever since 1938.
  • 's just my standard little joke when Microsoft misses the boat, nothing personal let alone ignorant of history:-)
  • I NEVER trust ANY programme that lets "different than" pass as good English. "Different" is not a comparative adjective. Because of the Latin dis - prefix it governs "from". When Bill Gates is good ...
  • The lack of IBIS is a v. major drawback in any system for me, and its presence is one of the best things about my Pentaxes.
  • 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 ...
