  • I have the EM5 II and the EM1 II.  I never use the EM5 II these days.  Yes, the EM1 II is larger and heavier, but I LOVE it.  I love the extra  controls and features, but most of all I LOVE LOVE ...
  • Well one reason is that field is automatically picked up by a lot of programs as either the title or subtitle.  I use it for subtitle in the program I use for displaying photo galleries (the ...
  • Why should your copyright appear in the Caption field?  That's where Olympus puts their name.
  • It works! I thought I had tried this, but I just did it (again?) and it is not there. NOTE, if you clear the field in LR after import, you won't see it in that image but if you edit the image in ...
  • I don't see it on my EM-1 II.
  • I discovered almost by accident that a long zoom took "better" flower photos than a closeup lens because I too like the background being out of focus. I tried it because that particular lens ...
  • I'm certainly not going to follow 4 forums instead of one, so I probably won't be back much.   I don't even see a way to easily find my "favorite" forums. 1) How to do something and the things you ...
  • No, I really don't see the issue.  If you don't want to read a thread for goodness sakes don't open it.  The change in Adobe software is very very important for many of us doing "retouching".  It ...
  • I doubt very much if I would visit a PC talk or Mac talk forum because gee virtually all of my tools will work on either one and I would imagine few questions are related to the platform.  And if ...
  • If that is the subject of the forum, I agree.  Post processing. To me "retouching" is just fixing up, especially portraits and the like to smooth skin etc.  Color correction, levels, removing spots.
  • Only photoshop? Then I guess new forums will have to be created... But I don't like multiple forums. How about Lightroom? What about Plug-ins? And did someone provide a definition of "retouching"?  ...
  • I use two:  Topaz Denoise and Nik's Dfine.  (as well as LR's noise sliders). I've discovered that different cameras have different type of noise.  With my previous camera Denoise worked better but ...
  • The professionals and trainers I follow don't just use Photoshop bare...  Once you allow in plug-ins, you might as well allow in other programs.    I guess that forum would be useful, but it sure ...
  • Looks like we need a definition of "retouching". PC and Mac forums for software have been suggested, but really, almost without exception we use the same tools on PCs and Macs so I don't know why ...
  • I guess I got lost.  How do you do retouching without software?  You mean make it a place to just show off photos without a discussion of how it was done?  Or discussion of software only with an ...
  • https://www.on1.com/blog/tag/luminosity-masking/
  • Created discussion thread Luminar on Windows
    I installed the beta, but don't care for it as a standalone at this point.  I see it is supposed to be a PS plugin, but I can't find that feature in the Windows version.   They want me to buy it ...
  • Sticking with LR6 standalone for now.  I'm on Windows so I think I can keep it working for the foreseeable future, along with PS CS6 and MetaRaw.  I have old, even ancient by software standards, ...
  • It works properly for me and I've commented on the steps I use, so no more of that.  I certainly have location GPS data in the files.  To get the location FIELDS filled in in LR you need another ...
  • We have no idea that Elements will continue to be sold as standalone (or at all).  Its cataloging features are not nearly as advanced as LR and no one with a big catalog should consider it as an ...
