  • Well just in case it becomes difficult to find again I've just ordered 5 of Colorplus and also 5 of HP5. Thanks for the heads up. Dave
  • Hi Roland, You may remember that your 5100 is the one I bought off you in March 2015. It still gets used and although I'm reducing the number of cameras I have  I'll not be letting the 5100 go. ...
  • If you want to stay with Picasa then I’m sure you’ll be able to find a copy of the exe file to re-install it on your new PC. Not sure if you are aware but there are several tweaks that can be done ...
  • Thanks for the video link. As I've mentioned before I prefer reading (quickly) a manual pdf and then if that doesn't give me enough info on a particular subject I'll search out a video.
  • You are quite correct. Thanks for the tip. It's all starting to fall into place after having read a lot of the user manual for Luminar Ai which isn't so different.
  • Having worked for both Japanese and US hi-tech companies in the past I agree that culture can have an influence on how code is structured. I'm still surprised that Sky Ai and Enhance Ai are in ...
  • Well I have copies of Photoshop, Lightroom, Affinity Photo, DXO...and none of them are what could be called perfect.... but I get your point about Neo. But it is far less mature than the others ...
  • Thanks to everyone who responded so far. I have seen several videos but to be honest they all seem to take a long time to explain things that I can read about much quicker. If after that I am still ...
  • Okay, to semi-answer my own questions… Now I’ve found Sky Ai and Enhance Ai under Favourites. Portrait Background removal is under Layer Properties>Masking. TBH that doesn’t seem very intuitive. So ...
  • Created discussion thread Luminar Neo v1.1
    I decided to try out (on a one week free trial) Luminar’s Ai and Neo yesterday. From what I had read it seemed likely that Neo was going to eventually replace Luminar Ai as it was based on an all ...
  • Thanks Overrank. I'll keep them in mind. Dave
  • Some great examples, Alfred, of what 110 is capable of. I have the Pentax auto 110 as well as the Minolta 110 SLR. It will be interesting to see what quality scans can be achieved by the labs ...
  • I assume that was a UK company in which case could you let me know who that was. Thanks
  • I totally agree with you, Overrank, that some previous replies are so definitive despite not having much of any idea of the specific requirements of the questioner. In summary there is no perfect ...
  • Yes, I interesting to try doing that for 110. Also interesting to compare results with those "professionally" scanned.
  • Yes, the AF on the KM5400ii is something I'd not want to forgo. My point about no affordable scanners was not about 135 capable ones, of which I'm aware of what's on the market, but one that does both
  • Thanks Alex for the link. As I said that's a camera I've never heard about. Looks very capable.
  • Alex, Some beautiful shots. I have to admit never having heard of a Pentax Z-1Pro. How were these scanned? Dave
  • I can only offer my personal opinion which may or may not be relevant to others. Before I re-discovered film photography I wanted to digitise a few thousand 35mm slides and negatives. With many ...
  • With great respect to Overrank, these sort of questions rarely lead to any definitive conclusion as people’s situations and requirements differ immensely. For example: • Is the scanner needed for ...
