  • I usually write a "letter of agreement" which is a simple contract with a less-scary name.  It clearly specifies what the client wants, what I want, and what we will do.  It goes like this: 1) ...
  • Good point. That's when you say "my instructors at the University of Whatever taught us that..." Or "when I worked with Company Name we had a policy that..." You reference whatever sources of ...
  • I am not a pro cinematographer nor photographer. I do, however, earn my living as a marketing communications consultant. Often clients ask me to do things that I consider, in my professional ...
  • Give it a try.  I like the interface and have gotten excellent results with it, although I haven't even begun to scratch the surface.  Many, many, many tools to play with.  It's like graduating ...
  • Another example: G'MIC - Details - Simple Local Contrast. For my taste this is over the top but it shows what you can do with one filter. You can try it here online: https://gmicol.greyc.fr/
  • On Windows, I have File menus in Analog Efex, Silver Efex and Color Efex as well as HDR.  No trouble using these programs standalone to open files, make edits, and "save as."  The only trick is to ...
  • Like a lot of abandoned Picasa users, I have been complaining that Google is redesigning its entire photo platform for the least demanding users.  Users who don't organize photos and only want to ...
  • Hey people, listen up! Fifteen minutes after I posted my edit above, I got an email from my husband. He says he has a two-for-one coupon for BK Whoppers and wants to know if I'd like him to bring ...
  • Aw man, between this and those fish tacos somebody posted, I'm so hungry I'm starting to hallucinate.  :-D Just some quick messing about with Smart Photo Editor because dude, look at the colors
  • AdobeRGB is great.  All you need to do is convince everybody who looks at your photos to buy new monitors, recalibrate their equipment, activate in-browser color management and change their workflows.
  • This is a shot of blue sky with small subjects.  There's only so much to be done in PP if you're happy with the exposure and white balance and you're not looking to add any "special effects." A ...
  • I installed it in March (not sure if it's the same version they're promoting this month) and tried to run it standalone, but I could not get the software to run properly in Windows 7. Hard to edit ...
  • Gee, everyone is talking about depth of field. I thought the important thing about a portrait lens is to avoid distorting the subject's facial features. You want a flattering shot and not some ...
  • Read this: http://blog.patdavid.net/2013/05/hdr-photography-with-foss-tools.html
  • But... but... if you edit those out, how will CSI identify the killer?  Enhance! :-D
  • A lot of people here have invested a great deal of time and money in camera equipment.  We have practical reasons (wanting to get better photos) but we are also, to some extent or other, investing ...
  • Zenda would like to invite all of you to continue this pointless argument while zooming with your feet closer... and closer... Zenda prefers to zoom with his freaking enormous paws, but he's not ...
  • Picasa is a non-destructive editor.  Nothing you do in Picasa makes a permanent change to the image file.  If you want to transfer the .jpg file to a thumb drive, there are two ways to do this and ...
  • Sheesh, as the standup comics would say, this is a tough room.  Any shot you like is a keeper until you get a better one.  Give it a crop, bring up the shadows, do a high-pass sharpen and dodge ...
  • Depends.  Often a soft brush gives a more natural effect than a hard selection.  The brush gives you more control over where to apply the layer effect, since you don't necessarily want to apply it ...
