  • That's a very nice job thanks.  The red shirt is marginally a deeper red but more importantly the skin tones are quite respectable and that was the issue I was battling with. I get a strange effect ...
  • Apart from hiding the IP what is the benefit though?  I'm thinking more in terms of security of the data being transmitted.
  • I may use it in the future but my immediate need is for a trip to Asia and the Singapore server is paid for only, whereas it is included in TunnelBear's offering best I can see.  The 1Gb sounds ...
  • Indeed but I supplied the RAW so cropping was always going to be PP.
  • Thanks for that, they now are offering 500Mb/month which is ample. This may sound a silly question but with a smartphone a VPN is I assume only necessary when connecting via Wi-Fi?  If connecting ...
  • As always you guys do a good job and demonstrate your understanding of colours and tones plus seem to make better use of your tools. I'm using Canon's DPP and have fiddled without getting the same ...
  • Nice attempt there Babine, and usable, though we still all look as if we've come out of a sunbed having been in too long.
  • As I said don't have the skill/eye for this sort of correction.  I've tried with various curves but just don't seem to be able to get the balance right nor the artificial look of the skin which is ...
  • Thanks but it is the skin tones that I appear to have lost.
  • Created discussion thread Help: Flash burn out rescue
    Whilst I realised that the images were a bit bright I thought I'd be able to rescue them but either they are too far gone or more likely, I don't have the skill. The RAW is available here for ...
  • Created question thread Free VPN for low usage
    There seems to be lots of options out there and hard to know what to trust.  I primarily am looking for a free VPN and Android App for < 1Gb, more typically 250mB/month with no (intrusive) ads. I'm ...
  • I don't know why you are telling me this.  I've posted how my problem was solved and I have not mentioned  iPhone.  You're not spamming are you?
  • For about as long as I've done email I've accessed my Yahoo a/c via POP3 using Pegasus Mail. The mail arrives as individual files in the New Mail "Folder" and whilst they are called *.cnm they are ...
  • Just in case anyone comes across this the problem seems to be that WhatsApp couldn't cope with the phone being dual sim and SIM2 being set for Data. Took Sim2 out and the SD card just to be safe, ...
  • Created question thread Android transfer to new phone again!
    Well I posted a couple of years ago about getting my wife's WhatsApp from her old phone to her new one (https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/58857001) and somehow succeeded so feeling that I'm ...
  • Faststone, Tools->Batch Convert->Advanced options AFAIK just about any image processor has these sort of options, Irfanview is another that I regularly use.
  • Glad you've sorted your issue.  Be very wary about relying on the DPI figures embedded in JPG EXIF info.  On the whole a figure is only inserted there for the purposes of not leaving the entry ...
  • It is clear from the rules that they do NOT want TIFF or RAW files, and that they do want JPG, and similarly, provided the JPG is not cropped, a low compression (high quality) setting will be more ...
  • parfocal You would get the accuracy you wanted if you used Live View and zoomed in, probably even better accuracy if you used contrast detect focus.
  • Have you actually tried your 100-400 for close-ups?  One of the reasons I bought mine was to be able to take close-up/macro of critters such as butterflies etc without having to be right on top of ...
