  • The story goes, Augustus DID pick and prepare his own food. Livia had the figs poisoned while still on the tree.
  • Replied in 130 CO2?
    To the contrary, I think we as humans are given to routinely placing too much weight on our own ideas of "common sense". Just because someone feels some proposition conforms to, or runs counter to, ...
  • But that seems a perfectly reasonable and even conservative (small C) projection. Look, it's gone down more steeply in the past ;)
  • The amount of work involved in creating your own lens profile, and the payback for that, depends on several things. First, you need to have the facility to print out one or more black-and-white ...
  • Look, there are two ways to manipulate people through misinformation. The first way, is presenting false stories as fact. These then either compete directly with TRUE reporting within the public ...
  • There's a square button with an icon showing a dot on a curve, in the lower right of your screenshot. Click on that to put the Tone Curve into a different "points" mode where for the separate ...
  • Loupe deck.
  • You can change this to 16-bit, also the colourspace. But yes, the physical consequences of external editing are certainly an important consideration. However, that aspect would be no different ...
  • These other programs are editors which can directly alter the content of a bitmap image. Lightroom is specifically NOT that kind of program, and never claimed to be so. One would not think of ...
  • I know. He can't even spell "vegetaryan".
  • Median is good for eliminating individual people, who appear in a certain place within only some images within a stack, but not all of them. That's because a person within ONE given shot can be ...
  • Replied in I use PSD
    That may have been a typo: for the very largest files . there's no option but to use PSB . PSD won't go beyond 2GB; TIFF may allow 2GB, or otherwise up to 4GB max. Note: Photoshop also has upper ...
  • Replied in I use PSD
    No, but it can go 'sideways' or 'forwards'. By 'sideways' I mean: the image you have taken to PS returns to LR as a newly imported separate image version. And from LR you can then re-invoke ...
  • I've found the Microsoft utility "SyncToy" helpful. There are lots of other similar apps. Even if I was using Dropbox for its cloud backup ability, I would probably still use SyncToy also - to ...
  • So as to obliterate the image below, no - Lightroom is not a painting program. Think of this option as more like marking up text on paper, with a 'highlighter' pen: if you couldn't still read those ...
  • In Lightroom and ACR, all the tonal adjustments work ' in luminosity ' - all the colour adjustments such as White Balance etc, work ' in hue ' - automagically. Only the RGB option for Tone Curve ...
  • Absolutely you can; when adding areas onto a local adjustment "mask" / for erasing areas out of a local adjustment "mask", you can e.g. use the keyboard shortcuts 1-9 for 10% to 90% flow, with 0 ...
  • Nazism was never eliminated as a political tendency, nor as a set of 'ideas' (or, better, of figmentary notions and rhetoric). It was only removed from power, and from current political dominance. ...
  • also, there is a single set of Default Develop adjustments for JPG. This is not camera model-specific. It can be tweaked and updated away from the initial default, which is basically zeroed out ...
  • I'd forgotten that option - thanks for the correction. I guess it may depend on how high-res your camera is, as to whether a noticeable performance difference is seen.
