I've been playing with this the past few days and I really like it. Previously I've found converting colour negs to positives to be somewhat of a pain. This web tool is enjoyable to use for my low volume of conversions. The white and black point buttons allow for coarse adjustments and I can finalise the output image for crop, colour balance, spotting etc in my usual image editor. Colour negatives are quite low contrast, unlike transparencies, and jpeg has sufficient dynamic range to capture them. All in all a big thumbs-up from me.

Nilangsu: Does Elements allow the recording of Actions for batch processing?

Thanks in advance.

I have PSE2015 and it does not. It would be useful.

jannefoo: The photo with a rainbow is obviously fake. Rainbow's radius is too large to fit in an image taken with 100mm+ focal length (check the exif, the lens is 100-400mm). And besides, the sunlight is coming from the wrong direction...

When it comes to rainbows, no, there is not. The centre of a rainbow marks the direction precisely 180 degrees away from the sun. In this image the photographer has positioned the rainbow centrally . Therefore the sun must be coming from exactly behind the photographer, it can't be coming from the side.

The rainbow is centre of the image so the sun has to be exactly behind the photographer as that's how rainbows work, optically.

Miller_bike: Vertical video looks great on smartphones, it's the default format for both filming and viewing. That simple fact explains the rise of tik-tok, reels, #short etc. No point in fighting it. I think the format is best suited to short clips, that's certainly how it's used. Long form video will remain landscape.

Okay... It's not like people don't take vertical format still photos, is it.

ProCanonUser: Agree about Gopro. It is a tool that you really want to work, but it constantly frustrates you with freezes and empty batteries.

I have a GoPro H8B. It's capable of great results but it can be flaky. The battery life i can forgive as a technology limitation but a random freeze is maddening. It needs to be more reliable.

abe4652: Does this thing autofocus yet?

There is not a strong case for AF in action cameras. Take note of the word 'action' - action cams are not cosseted ILCs, they're small devices that get fixed to bikes, boats, boards, whatever, and used in rough and wet environments. They need to have no moving parts and be very robust. (Take note of the iphone advisory this week about not fixing them to motorbikes cos the iphone can fail due to vibration.)
