bobbarber: I dunno.

Max makes his case well, but the self-righteousness factor is a little too high for me. There's nothing to argue about legally, but often when people take work like this they aren't thinking in terms of theft. That doesn't make it right, but there's no need to go full death-battle snarky mode either. Just correct them, and stay courteous.

Here's a weird analogy. You earn income from trade of services, which you're supposed to report to the IRS. So if the neighbor brings your kid home from soccer, that's income. You can figure out what it is pretty easily from checking UBER rates. Everybody report that? Didn't think so.

I mean, charge your $25, but tone it down a notch.

Disclaimer: I don't make a living from photos. If I did, I'd probably have a different take.

"charge your $25," That's exactly what he did but the company refused to pay.
"but tone it down a notch." The attitude was brought on by the company's d***head response.

That'll teach them. I bet they don't do it again. :)

dudewithcamera: I looked at her gallery of images on the source NYT article. She is finding interesting compositions. But this is curating, right? Not creating?

"Editor" might be accurate. She's organizing and arranging and presenting the work of others.

Alex Efimoff: What about the copyright side of these photos?

After browsing the Google Permissions info, I think she's good-to-go as long as it's not for commercial use.
Where she could get in trouble potentially, if she's altering the images from how they appear on Google Maps or Google Earth.

On article Are the NLE wars beginning to heat up? (33 comments in total)

The limitations are so significant that they should just call it a "free demo." And there's nothing revolutionary or groundbreaking about free demos; software companies have been doing it forever.

On article Simple demo shows the power of a polarizing filter (133 comments in total)
In reply to:

(unknown member): It is an essential tool for many types of photography, especially landscape photography. One of the few filter effects that can't be replicated digitally at this point. It can make a huge difference in some situations. But make sure you use a high quality one which doesn't introduce glace, softness or weird colour casts

Hoya is barely OK but may work for you. I get a weird color from my Hoya CPL and have moved on to B+W.

In reply to:

stevo23: I always carry one. And yet, I prefer reflections and glare and most of the things a polarizer gets rid of!

Sometimes I want the reflection, sometimes not. The thing is, you only get to choose if you have one. :)

On article iOS 11 will cut photo, video size in half (82 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pooya Rastin: Nice move. I Hope camera manufacturers do the same someday.

iPhone jpegs are already heavily compressed, and look like it. Maybe the new process won't suck quite so bad?
Given the un-upgradeability and un-expandability of Apple products, the net result of smaller files could be an overall plus.
I'm curious to see some sample images.

Bobthearch: User replaceable? It looks like they had to disassemble the whole d*** thing first.
All I want to know, how to install a sound card, a USB card, and additional hard drives? Stupid useless iMacs...

The real savings happens when building a subsequent system and you can re-use half of the components. Keyboard, monitor, sound card, optical drives, case...

On article Phase One introduces 'Styles Packs' for Capture One (62 comments in total)

I wouldn't have guessed the market for Capture One and the market for presets would overlap much.
And considering the price of Capture One, you'd think they'd be pretty generous with in-house presets and plugins.
On1 fills my email folder regularly with in-house and third-party preset offers, for free. You can buy the entire On1 program for less than the price of two Capture One preset packs. :)

It is interesting to read about how professional photographers shoot in pro sports arenas. But to suggest that everyone else would get better photos if only they used the same techniques, ridiculous.

Karroly: A budget AF-P DX 10-20mm? Interesting...
But not for my D5200 unfortunately...
No thank you , Nikon !

Yeah, it seems like the D3xxx and D5xxx series cameras would be ideal mates for a lens of this sort, lightweight and inexpensive.

I'd of picked this over the Tokina 11-16 ATX-Pro. More compact, less than half the weight, and at least a hundred dollars $$ less expensive.
But sorry Nikon, you're a few months late. Reacting to the market instead of leading it...

On article Imaging Resource selects best cameras for backpacking (29 comments in total)
In reply to:

theRose: Isnt the point of backpacking that you travel very simple and you meet a lot of people? Which mean your gear needs to easy to hide and relatively cheap so you can replace it if it gets stolen? Or is my backpacking experience strange?
These cameras are to me very professional but easy to carry stuff but not something I would bring to a crowded hostel!

I rarely see any other people when backpacking, hiking, or camping. That would defeat the entire purpose of going!

It seems to be something like Google or TinEye reverse search, except you have to register and upload photos to your account.
They don't actually copyright register your photos. If they find an identical photo being used online they have no way to determine whether it's an authorized / legitimate use, or even if the copy they've registered is the original. And it doesn't matter anyway because even if they find unauthorized use, they don't do anything about it.
There must be something I'm missing.
