  • Chruchill by Karsh. Well known story that the photographer snatched the ever present cigar from Chruchill, which ticked him off and gave this expression. Note: I first used a word different than ...
  • I'm not familiar with the Hasselblad, but it has to be like any other digital in that some white balance must be set in-camera at the time of shooting. That WB, be it right or wrong, is placed in ...
  • Replied in Static Elec ?
    You might try dust removal techniques from the film days (darkroom). Get a 1/2 to 1 inch soft, natural bristle artist brush with a 6 inch minimum handle. Soak the brush in a mixture of 9 parts ...
  • I've used Adoramapix, Blurb, and Shutterfly. They all do what you ask. The bit about "installing a frame" is an advanced step in each and may require more learning curve, but doable.
  • Google "Long Exposure skies" and you will see hundreds of images like that. No special retouching after the fact. Might add -night (minus sign+night) to that Google search because otherwise you ...
  • Created discussion thread What's wrong with my finger?
    I got a Microsoft Surface Pro 4. My first device with touch screen. Most of the time my "touch" does not work. Dragging, swiping seems OK, but when touching on a link or button I have to do it ...
  • I suspect you have a cache problem. Bridge is notorious for cache problems, and those problems are often system dependent, i.e., can't be easily reproduced on a different system. My Adobe Bridge is ...
  • Vischa, As I suspected, you are comparing the difference between the Exposure Adjustment tool inside Photoshop with the Exposure slider in ACR or Lightroom. The result you are seeing is NOT the ...
  • Vicsha, I downloaded your 2 files but could not reproduce the problem you show in the original set of thumbnails. But then I re-read your OP and realized you are seeing a difference only when ...
  • Dear Luke, You are in the murky waters between accurate color and pleasing color. Shooting snow scenes makes these waters even more murky because human vision adjusts colors in the mind. And our ...
  • I do a lot of B&W and have used a variety of Photoshop techniques and 3rd party apps. When an image has no special challenges, the B&W adjustment inside Photoshop works good for me. It has a wide ...
  • Precision control is 20% mouse and 80% mouse pad. About any Logitech mouse will do. Check out Razer mouse pads. Then get a roll of teflon tape, put some on the mouse feet for the smoothest ...
  • Some do, some don't. You need to test. Hold your glasses in front of something neutral (paper, gray card). Take a photo of that. Process that image, set white balance on the areas outside the lens, ...
  • Not sure I understand, but maybe converting a layer style (drop shadow) to its own layer will work? Once on its own layer you can transform it any way you want. Here's how: ...
  • No problem with a long history with Canon. But I have one Sony (RX10) that hates it if you change the sd card outside of the camera. Refuses to accept the card, insists on re-formatting in-camera.
  • If you know what you want, LR, ACR, or Photoshop will work fine 99% of the time. If you don't know what you want, then you need a plugin or preset library that lets you cycle through dozens or ...
  • Ditto here. I spent less than hour with Auto Tone and wrote it off for the same reasons you list. Only for the lazy, or untrained, I think.
  • 500 vacation shots times 10 frames per shot would be 5,000 raw images, not 10,000. Do you, by chance, work for the Trump administration? My last Euro trip yielded 750 images. Only 13 of those were ...
  • This is a good technique. It's been around for a long time. Not sure who the original author is. But it does have some drawbacks. Hand holding for multiple shots gives a significant challenge to ...
