Nansen's recent activity

  • I always suspected that the laws of optics and perspective geometry is different overseas...
  • Indeed, people should be informed, but not about Adobe specifically. Photographers must understand that the longevity of every computer software or software vendor is much, much shorter than the ...
  • There are three interdependent pieces of information: UTC ("world time"), location ("time zone"), and "local time". Knowing any two, we can derive the third. Most cameras will record only one item, ...
  • Replied in Embarrassment...
    ...of not recognizing a rhetorical question for what it was?
  • What is "GMT"?
  • Replied in UTC!
    For a whole lot of reasons, discussed here on numerous previous occasions, camera time should be set to UTC.
  • Adobe is doing nothing but maximizing its profit given the market condition. That company is not in a position to make strategic decisions that would be either good or bad for the whole industry. C ...
  • Replied in Trademark it!
    You must use your government name on the tax forms and on the driver's license application form. Everywhere else - whatever you believe your customers will accept most readily, for whatever ...
  • Yes, my omission - horizontal lines perpendicular to the optical axis. But my main point it this: if there are horizontal - and even vertical - lines in the picture, most experienced observers till ...
  • ...(that is in the very centre of the frame)... Correct if, as is quite common, the camera is pointing slightly "up" or down". This is OK, as we commonly point our head up or down. We do not ...
  • This is not the case. When observing the nature around us, we commonly tilt out head up or down to see something better, but we hardly ever tilt our head sideways to do so. We expect the same to ...
  • No, it would not. We expect the transverse camera axis to be horizontal, but we do expect that the lens optical axis might be tilted up or down . If that is the case, all lines horizontal in nature ...
  • Management of a large photo library and digital image processing ("editing") of a photograph are so vastly different tasks that I do not expect one program, from one vendor, to do both things ...
  • An observer with reasonable experience in photo geometry will detect that the camera transverse axis (presumably horizontal axis perpendicular to the lens optical axis) is tilted with a great deal ...
  • Both Photoshop and Gimp before, Gimp only after Adobe adopted "software rental" business model. All I need done, it does quite well.
  • Where, in the best of all possible worlds, there is no user data on the system partition. Why is that (user data on a separate partition, distinct from where the system software lives) not a ...
  • Your data should not be backed up in such a manner that it can be restored only on the same OS, from the same vendor as was the system previously used to operate on it. This is only one small ...
  • Cigarette smoking was another, long-lasting fad. The first to take it up were members of the upper socio-economic class. It gave people some pleasure, promoted social bonding, it was good for ...
  • While I agree with most of your post, I would have to see some numbers before taking the above as given.
  • Replied in temporary fad?
    This will change when the current fad of having a communication device constantly on you will come to an end. I'm not at all denying these things can be extremely useful, but having them on your ...
