  • I just upgraded from ACDSee Ultimate 10 to Studio Ultimate 2019 for $69.95. (USA) - Kjell
  • Replied in ACDSee
    I would buy before I get a subscription. If you need whatever a new version offers, upgrade. But in the meantime you have likely paid more in monthly fees. - Kjell
  • Replied in ACDSee
    The principles of what you are doing basically remain the same whatever program you are using. As long as the capabilities are there. I often use PhotoShop Youtubes as guidance for whatever I try ...
  • Replied in ACDSee
    Some years ago, I did a comparison with my own images between the major softwares doing RAW conversions. ACDSee Ultimate  was my choice. Since then, it has kept up improving. Now, with layers, 90% ...
  • To begin with, but.... While Youtube's might refer to earlier ACDSee versions without new features, they are likely the same for basic stuff. Perhaps you try to narrow your search too much. The ...
  • Replied in Floral Girl
    Back in the 70's, I used to spend countless hours in the darkroom with lithfilm and something called Agfacontour film to accomplish images similar to this! It is a little easier nowadays...
  • I do not get why mirrorless cameras have a prism shaped hump. However unfortunately, for left eye users like me, more smudge and unwanted nose directed operation on the touch screen, is a huge...

  • I use the UV filter as a protection for the lens. I rather get a scratch on the filter than on the lens. It also will also function as a shock absorber.
  • Back when I was using Lightroom, I was very annoyed by the sidecar files that had to accompany the image when I moved files within my computer or to an external harddrive. I do not understand why ...
  • If I get you right, I see this as a good thing. I am seldom certain what the end result is going to be like when it comes to size if it is going to be framed and hung on a wall. My crop does not ...
  • Sorry, the 6.5 was a typo. Thanks guys for your help. Guess what, I already have a M37 to M42 adapter, so I am halfway there!
  • Thank you. - Kjell
  • Created discussion thread M37 thread mount
    I have what appears to be a great lens that I would like to use with my m43 system: It is a heavy lens that by just handling it screams quality: Tele - Takumar 1:6.5 135mm. M37 screw mount. Any ...
  • Great job so far, when it comes to technique. But if I were you, I would continue coloring the rest of the photo or just the person and the bike. If you color the whole image, I would choose a ...
  • As somebody else said above, this is a - Photography - site. When the usage comes down to photography the lead position of Photoshop diminishes. For me, (as a former professional in the film era), ...
  • I think there is another contributing factor; Piracy. Logic tells us that a $700-800 software is a much bigger target by piracy users than the more reasonable priced ones. I bet a large part of PS ...
  • I would have done exactly what you did. I seldom center things and since the bird is looking one way, space is needed in the same direction like you composed it. I like the vertical lines that are ...
  • I used to do all post processing in Gimp, but when there is a need for help beyond your abilities, you're in for trouble. Acronyms and developer's lingo made things tough to comprehend. Nowadays, I...

  • Agree with Michael and his Geez. For me, Luminar is a way to quickly double check what can be done.
    1) I do the "groundwork" in ACDSee Ultimate, and I am overall very happy with the results for my...

  • A couple of years ago, I got trials of all major RAW converters including some freebies, and scrutinized a few images converted with the default settings, since I was not in the mood to learn how ...
