  • One cannot compare a raw to a jpeg and one cannot crop a raw. Any comparisons shown here are between an OOC jpeg and someone's attempt at converting a raw file to an actual image (in whatever format).
  • is to get yourself over to CameraNu in Urk, Cameraland in Alkmaar or Kamera-express in Rotterdam and get some face-to-face advice. I have had excellent experiences with Urk and Alkmaar in the ...
  • For those who are interested as to how one could use Darktable in combination with a DAM application such as Digikam, I just ran a few screenshots as well as the OOC jpeg and the final raw ...

    I suppose that might be Digikam where you can right-click a raw file and choose to open with any raw editor of choice (as shown below)

    Opensource being the free software ecosystem it is, it seems you have two options: either choose not to use Darktable until it does what you want or get actively engaged with a user group that ...

    ??? Why would you assume GMIC is "a bit mapped editor"? I do not think anyone would mistake it for that to be honest. GMIC is a CLI-based mathematical image manipulation platform which can be ...
  • Obviously something is triggering Norton's suspicion but this one is a false positive for sure. I don't use Windows so I'd suggest getting some help on the Symantec user forums.
  • Replied in Where?
    If you attempt to download it from anywhere but the source site itself, there might be crap packaged with it. GMIC itself is open source and very safe but as with all software, try to avoid ...
  • Thanks Jim. I still have a Sigma 17-70 (the non-HSM f2.8-4.5 model) on loan to my daughter which I intend to start using for a while until I decide what to do - ask for a repair quote on the Tammy ...
  • Created discussion thread La Palma (warning: 12 images!)
    One of the Canary islands, off th coast of Africa but part of Spain and the EU. Volcanic island with excellent vibe and stunning nature. K-5 IIs capture with the Tamron 17-50 and Pentax DA55-300 ...

    Both are compromise lenses which exchange good image quality for other important things such as ease of use and/or weather-resistance. The more of a zoom-range, the less the IQ of the lens. A lot ...

    Your "limited knowledge" is quite sufficient here, I'd say and you are spot-on. No combination of 3 parties would result in 76 parliamentary seats necessary for a coalition majority in the ...
  • +1 !! His retoric is flawed, his reasoning non-existent. By any standards, even Pim Fortuyn was a way better populist (even though with similarly abject ideas) with about ten times the intellect of ...
  • Replied in Why
    Why spend time to make one software program emulate another? RT is for anyone but it does things its own way. Once you have twiddled the sliders enough you can save "recipes" to make things easier ...
  • On a PC is rather a wide term. I use Rapid Photo Downloader by Damon Lynch but I suppose that wouldn't help you if you have a PC running OSX or Windows.
