    One of the more interesting questions of science is why the theory of evolution has not eliminated lefties from the gene pool. Some use that fact to argue that the theory is false.
  • The history of mankind holds many philosophical questions that great minds have debated for centuries. This ain't one of them.
  • Thanks for the suggestions. Update: Upon closer inspection and intense interrogation of wife operator - The batch of 6 missing raws were made when the camera drive mode was set to continous with ...
  • Created discussion thread Sony RX100M6 missing some Raw files?
    Bought a new RX100M6, sent it with my wife on a trip to Germany set to jpeg+Raw. She shot 497 images, but only 490 of them recorded Raw. Seven Raw images are missing on the 64gb SD card. Not in a ...
  • Working OK here on Win10+CC 2019. Might try resetting preferences. Example: After my CC2019 update, the "Alt-Del" and "Ctrl-Del" would not fill anything with foreground/background color. Resetting ...
  • In my experience, Nik Silver Efx does a better job than Lightroom/ACR or Photoshop when pushing things to the limit. With only subtle changes, not much advantage. The main difference I notice is ...
  • Thanks all, both questions answered. 1. Abandon Auto Mode. No way to make it work. P mode and S mode will work fine for the wife. She can handle those OK. 2. After 10 more trips thru the menu ...
  • Created discussion thread RX100 M6 - New user questions
    Just got an RX100 M6 for the wife. Been using an RX10 v0 for a few years. First 2 stumbling blocks. 1. I hoped Auto mode would work for her. But in initial around-the-house test it is using very ...
  • Because some of us have OCD and like to keep things neat and clean. We like to eliminate unwanted file formats, color profiles, menu items, plugins, etc. So when we are fishing around for ...
  • Yes, there is. You can remove some, but not all. Go to the "File Formats" folder for your installation. Probably something like: C:/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CC ...
  • Sailor Blue, The first link you provided does go to a download of an old version of the lens profiler, dated 2012. That program has no provision for downloading user made profiles. The PDF user ...
  • Make a pure white screen - a PSE layer filled with white, or any utility like Notepad. Does it look blue to you? If yes, then your eyes or your monitor are bad. Probably the monitor. Is it calibrated?
  • I ran another round of "bench" tests. Shooting a stationary target at the same distance and same settings as my sample post above. Test 1: With IS on - 40 shots fast. 3 seconds or less between ...
  • That fake texture looks a lot like this technique from Phlearn. The Emboss step is the key. 1. 50% gray layer, softlight 2. Add noise, about 30-50 3. Blur that just a little (1) 4. Stylize/Emboss ...
  • Thanks for the responses. These shots, and all others where I see the problem are hand held. When I first got the Canon 5D4 I noticed an increase in camera shake blur. Some good discussions on ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon 70-200 Image Stabilization Error?
    I've had the Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS for over 10 years and occassionally I would get a mysterious out-of-focus shot in the middle of a sequence. Maybe 5% of less. Now I've "upgraded" to the new ...
  • Jim B, Thanks again, and I concur. I see negligible loss of detail in brighter areas of little or no color, like your target. The difference shows up more in darker areas with RGB values below 80, ...
  • Thanks to everyone for the responses, especially Zeee and Jim B who have taken the time to run tests and show results. I've continued to run tests and it seems the issue involves two aspects. One ...
  • The hype on the new Adobe CC 2019 version of Camera Raw (ACR 11.0) claims that Process Version 5 will give "better rendering for high ISO images." I assume that means when noise reduction is ...
  • Somebody with a lot of time and a high tolerance for scientific writing style, please read this and give a summary. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3037488/ I think it says that when ...
