  • Is there a reason you set the paper type to glossy?  I'm NOT suggesting that's causing the problem you're experiencing, but the ET-85xx printers have a setting for luster papers and that setting ...
  • Rather than trying to get images that look closer to you through gear, have you tried cropping the images taken with just the lens and no teleconverter.  Your R& has a 32 megapixel sensor, it ...
  • I doubt Canon or Nikon have declared DSLR's "obsolete".  There are still things their top-of-the-line ultra-expensive DSLR's can do that haven't yet been duplicated in anyone's top-of-the-line ...
  • You might have your monitor/screen brightness set too high.  There's a difference in luminosity when viewing a picture projected on a screen to what you see with the same picture under reflected ...
  • Except we always do capitalize it, maybe because we're using it as a noun, not an adjective? If you check a dictionary, "raw" can also be a noun.   Just sayin'.
  • Ninety-nine percent of the answers I receive are technical explanations, FACTS, and the other are the opinions of professional photographers, and are sound information based on observation and ...
  • Replied in What size? /nt
    I'll be using plenty of mats that size, too.  I was having trouble finding the bigger sheets from a source I could count on to get them to me intact. I think it would be easier to get a new family ...
  • Good to know!  I never have anything I need to do with the scraps from a larger sheet and they just clutter up my spare bedroom/hobby room.  Thanks!
  • Replied in What size? /nt
    Big?  Really?  Uncut mat board at 32x40-inches is about as small as I've found for DIY mat projects. I admit it's a bit of a butt-pain to mat and frame 13x19 prints, but I'm lucky I don't have more ...
  • It's Photoshop.  Not sure what switch I clicked, but it added ti to a file this morning, so I know where to look. Thanks everyone for the suggestions.  I appreciate the help.
  • Your birthday?  Get off my compute, hacker!
  • I'll be cutting my own mats, but Redimat offers good prices on pre-cut mats - if the windows are true to the dimensions and not undersized. I can't get a complete frame as cheaply as I could at ...
  • At the moment, I'm framing 6x9-inch prints and I can find premade metal frames for around $20 with everything except the print, mat, and hanging hardware.  I'm not sure where I'll look when I ...
  • Thank you, I'll check.
  • Created question thread What's doing this to my image names?
    I was sorting pictures and ran across a number of them with "3.48.09 AM" appended to the file name, as in "IMG_0001 3.48.09 AM.JPG" and it isn't limited to JPG's - it appears on PSD'd and PNG's ...
  • We had to learn to cut mat board by hand back in high school (gee, I just dated myself, didn't I?) so I understood the basics. I only had to learn the proper techniques for using the cutting ...
  • Thanks!  I have relatives who live not too far from Portland and could pick up a sheet or two for me - saves shipping and minimum quantities if I'm willing to wait until they come to visit. Thanks!
  • I agree with the 3:2 aspect ratio. I decided to start cutting mats because I was tired of cropping pictures to fit standard 8x10-inch store-bought frames (I am NOT going to start making frames in ...
  • I own an ET-8500 and I agree with your every word. I don't have the problem you described with borderless prints (which I also rarely if ever make) but my ET-8500 doesn't like 4x6-inch glossy paper ...
  • Aw, gee, I was only telling the OP about my experience with both printers, now I have to respond to a technical challenge, too? The Epson ET-8500 has a theoretical advantage in resolution over the ...
