  • They are about the same price now but Painshop Pro is usually much higher.  The new version of PSP Ultimate is $100.
  • I downloaded and purchased Affinity when it was first released for Windows. It is a nice program and would suit most people's needs completely. They've released a few updates as well, which helped ...
  • My work takes me into underground coal mines frequently.  That field of white crosses has an impact.
  • Sounds like a Pro question. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/1014
  • Yes, there is plenty of software available for adding watermarks to images. Will that prevent someone from stealing or using the images if they really want to, of course not.  :) Watermarks are ...
  • Avast for XP didn't install? https://www.avast.com/windows-xp-antivirus
  • Search engine rankings increase with time.  The longer your website is there, the higher the rank it gets as it get cred as an "authority." It also helps to take photos of things that not everyone ...
  • Wordpress websites are indexed through Google and other search engines just the same as any other website. Try it for yourself.  To test, search Google for Columbey National Park.  See if my ...
  • I was going to say the same but thought it might sound rude. Another suggestion is to host your own image galleries with an NAS drive that's made public.  The photos are online and publicly ...
  • Matt Klonkowski's short YouTube videos for On1 are easy to follow.  I especially like the short vids where he tackles submitted photos. I don't have the attention span for watching long videos or ...
  • I use Wordpress hosted on my own websites.  Wordpress itself is free; you do have to buy a domain and pay for hosting though. It gives me the most flexibility with the organization, style, and ...
  • Created discussion thread Dawson Cemetery.
    As many as 9,000 people once lived in the coal mining town of Dawson, New Mexico.  The town site is on private property and off-limits but the cemetery is accessible to the public. In 1913 an ...
  • Yes, no matter how good or interesting the lighting is, I always wish for better.  :) And it's a lot of effort, for me at least, to predict good lighting and be somewhere interesting when it ...
  • I used AVG on XP for many years until I switched to Avast a couple of years ago. As I recall, I fled AVG when the program started spamming my computer with nonstop popup advertisements and phony ...
  • I'm a bit fascinated with this Microsoft-created hysteria over using "unsupported" products (oh no!).  Just how much 'support' do you really need?  A marketing breakthrough in psychology, for sure. ...
  • You used a very wide angle lens that emphasizes the foreground grass in the lower portion.  And having direct sun on that section really accentuates that area.  But there's nothing there. Then my ...
  • Did you really think MS would "sanction" a registry edit to extend their product's lifespan? Did the link work or not? Of course they ended official support, it's a relatively old operating ...
  • Yeah, I'm accustomed to Nikon cameras and their free Capture NX software in which you can change many settings after-the-fact, the exact same as setting them in-camera. White Balance, Picture ...
  • Never used any of those. But I see that Cameta Camera is selling that kit via Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Nikon-20-9MP-Camera-NIKKOR-16-80mm/dp/B0741QJVWF/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1505674905&sr=8- ...
  • Well there's no rule about it.  :) And it's nothing new; certain film types were preferred for their exaggerated saturated colors.  Look at old post cards, for example, or scanned Kodachrome images. ...
