  • An image dot (pixel) has a combination of 3 colours, a printer needs at least 3 dots to reproduce that. The OP (and you) have conflated ppi and dpi.  The typical mantra* is that an image requires ...
  • You are not going to be near enough to fill the spot meter with the bird so the auto iso will always end up exposing for the sky.  Manually set everything, expose for grass away from the sun or ...
  • My approach would be: 1) Tether your camera to the PC using Canon's EOS utility.  Set the location to save the photos as specified below 2) Install XAMPP on you Windows laptop.  This will make the ...
  • Yes I was following what you were posting and didn't intend to confuse the issue.  It seems to me that any organisation that doesn't understand the terms googles and copies the same nonsense into ...
  • This topic comes up a couple of times a year and beginners are often confused by even more confused organisers. A search for photo competition rules 300 resolution will bring up a number of ...
  • Until a few years ago Canon had a well orginised Digital Learning Centre (Center) site. It is still there but a struggle at times to find content: Another look at DPP - other items available using ...
  • You can open the file with a decent text view/editor, even Wordpad.  Other than any 8 bits stuff it is fairly legible even if incomprehensibile. It starts with the line SQLite format 3 so it may be ...
  • Firstly confirm which lens you are using, 18-55? IS or the older version or the STM. Check that you are not too near, see minimum focus distance: https://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/lenses/cano ...
  • Chris that post, for me, clears so much up, and that is not to dismiss several other posts which I have bookmarked as a reference. I've marked it therefore as the answer to my question and will now ...
  • You've be connecting your Huawei phone to your computer!!  They told you not to.
  • Some really good stuff here and whilst it might be too late for my OEM Windows XP there is stuff I need to get on with to protect my Windows 7. One other question though; how portable is the ...
  • Just a thought but would this stand a chance of working. Put the existing XP drive into my "new" hardware (it's an HP Elitebook 8440p and a few years on the clock now).  Run the Recovery ...
  • @CAcreeks, I presume you're using VMWare. I'm not heavily into VirtualBox and had no criteria in mind when I installed it. I have a WinXP install and the SP3 iso as a CD. @Billiam29, thank you for ...
  • I'm running VirtualBox on Linux and want to run my XP system under it. I've put the XP drive in a caddy and used Macrium Reflect Free to make an image which I then, using the same software, ...
  • I nearly always use Spot, or Centre Weighted average, taking care on the actual subject luminosity, as it is usually the centre of the image that I'm trying to get right in those circumstances and ...
  • A suggestion for you.  Take a sunset using RAW, but with the WB you think you should have used (just for comparitive purposes).  Open the RAW and play with the WB setting until it is neutralised.  ...
  • Replied in Bitdefender
    I forgot to mention and it is always worth using to check that your AV is correctly installed and that is the EICAR test file.  It is downloadable from the Eicar web site, it is just a text file ...
  • Replied in Bitdefender
    Because the second thing I did was run a scan.  The first thing I did was backup. I suspect somewhere in the history of this forum is my post on this issue.
  • Replied in Bitdefender
    It's a long time since I tried Bitdefender Free but I had to abandon it when it cleaned a number of critical files of mine and there was no way to restore from the vault.  Has it improved since ...
  • DPP has had fairly regular upgrades so it may have improved quite a bit since you used it but nonetheless it is still a global editor and any work on a particular area of an image will need ...
