  • MyPaint is a free painting program, with a canvas, settings and brush engine specifically made for paintings. The newest Gimp also have these MyPaint engine integrated. In Gimp you use the brush ...
  • I didn't pay attention to his right leg. So, for this, there is only one explanation. Do you know the first Back to the Future movie, where the part of Marty and his family starts to disappear? htt ...
  • If you talk about this one: https://www.theguardian.com/cruk-cycle-300/2018/jul/13/one-reluctant-cyclists-attempt-to-ride-300-miles-in-a-month-week-one#img-5 It is not edited poorly. The arm is ...
  • This is by far the best conversion I have seen in this topic. Good idea at making the important middle part bright, so it stands out. May I ask what steps or settings you used for converting to ...
  • The thing is, the image lacks a bit of contrast. The blue background and the foreground colors aren't very contrasty, so you get greyish image, if you convert it to grey colors. I think, this ...
  • Here is my version. I used Gimp to edit the original. The steps are: (1) Automatic White Balance and Automatic Color Improvement (50%) (2) St ...
  • Just my opinion, but I like the uncropped version better. There is a little room for the eye, so it does not look like fully busy.
  • I agree on Darktable , a raw converter. I use it since the start and it got better and better. Good software similar to Lightroom, but free and cross platform, if you ever decide to jump off ...
  • I understand that she have other things to do than searching for plugins. My point is, if she switch to Chrome, then she needs to do the same as a new Firefox Quantum. She can't use legacy Firefox ...
  • The main selling point (ok no selling here) of ESR is it does not change or add functionality. It get updates too, but security updates only. If regular Firefox get new features or important or ...
  • I see a lot of people doing this. If you change to Chrome, you also give up your plugins. So, why not upgrading Firefox then? There are a lot of new or updated plugins to the new system. What type ...
  • I wish every camera would handle firmware updates like this.
  • I have the RX100 and I use Ubuntu since 2008. When I tried to update the firmware several years ago, I didn't manage it with Linux. I even considered to use Virtual Machine and I think it worked, ...
  • Windows 10 isn't good at scaling too. I use 1440p/165hz with Windows 10 for gaming and Ubuntu 18.04 (a Linux) for everything else. And Windows 10 is so bad at scaling. For photography editing, I ...
  • Yes off course it shouldn't be that small. How about 4gb internal memory? Its safer and faster than any SD card could be. Not all cameras should have it, but some could do. Edit: And a move to ...
  • I wonder too. Internal memory is faster than any SD card out there. Not because of the card, but because of the connection. Even smartphones have internal space and old point and shoot cameras did ...
  • Replied in Project 365
    The best thing I ever did in photography and what improved me most was a full 365 project. That means, doing at least one photo a day and post it (posting and explicit editing is optional). That ...
  • Why those fake terms still exist? I find it disrespectful not typing the name of the company.
  • On the other hand, one could argue why you don't delete the bad and ordinary ones. I am not talking about private photos or if you have any other reason not to share. I talk about photos you could ...
  • To me, its part of photography to shoot and learn for yourself and select those photos for sharing. I see the selection as integral part. There are photos for yourself only, for family only, for ...
