  • Replied in C&C
    I don't think #3 is over sharpened for printing OR for web viewing. It is just too sharp when I look it at full size.
  • Replied in C&C
    IMHO, the third picture is oversharpened, the second one looks great, and the first picture does not have enough DOF. That said, these are your pictures and should be how you like them, not what I ...
  • Your description matched my experience, except I never discerned even a slight color shift when merging my inks. Of course, I didn't go back and reprint the same pictures, either, but I was just ...
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    Photoshop 6 is a 16 bit program, so it will install only on 32 bit operating systems. I think there is a 32 bit version of Win10, so that might be an answer although I think that a newer version ...
  • I'd just buy another monitor to leave at the weekend site.  I know it doesn't answer your question, but it would solve your problem.
  • I did B&W development and some Cibachrome, but sent color negatives out. I really don't miss the darkroom. Lightroom and Photoshop smell ever so much better. :)
  • Replied in Simplicity
    I was one of the ones who didn't understand what Sabrina was trying to point out. I was looking for sharpening halos, and the sharpening looked about right to me. Once I realized you were talking ...
  • I wasn't being critical of anyone for bracketing exposures. It is a useful technique, particularly when shooting critical scenes.  I was taking only personal shots, and only had my vanity to worry ...
  • I don't recall bracketing with my old film cameras either. My first "real" camera was a manual focus, no-light-meter Petri. I got pretty good pictures most of the time using the Sunny 16 rule or ...
  • Replied in Canon upgrade
    Last Friday I shot a Great Grey Owl with my 80D and a 400mm f/5.6. May not be the hardest creature to shoot, but I live well outside its normal range, so I was excited. I have no complaints about ...
  • Replied in Canon upgrade
    I hope I didn't say the 80D was better than the 7DII. :) The 7DII is an awesome camera, particularly for sports and wildlife. The focusing is superb as is the frame rate. I think the 80D sensor is ...
  • Replied in Canon upgrade
    I was in a similar position and recently upgraded my T3i (600D) to an 80D and have been delighted with the upgrade. I looked at the 7DII as well, and it is a fine piece of equipment, but it is a ...
  • Replied in Windows ads...
    Thanks for the heads-up. It has not yet hit my system, but if it does I know how to stop it now.
  • Replied in Simplicity
    Sabrina, it looks like you removed some hair and blurred the texture out of the background wall, but I still don't see any halos, either. Can you be a little more specific? Thanks.
  • You are giving yourself the same answer as the others have been trying to tell you. No matter what setting you use for creating your video, it will not look exactly the same  on everyone else's. ...
  • My first guess is that Lemming51 is correct, although it is possible that it might be a shutter curtain problem. Perhaps the photographer's hand in front of the flash? It is too asymmetrical to be ...
  • As suddenly as it appeared, the problem seems to be gone. Hasn't happened in the past several hours. I made no changes here on my end since the last time it was failing. My guess is that Olga was ...
  • I ran Malwarebytes and a/v scans in safe mode. All clean. But I don't believe it is malware. Flashtalking is one of the largest commercial ad servers and not something hackers use. My guess is that ...
  • Qimage does all that easily. It is also the best print quality you will get. It has a lot of other features, but it is worth it to me just for the quality.
  • Olga, When I wrote that original message I had no idea if anyone, let alone you, would be answering it. I was addressing it to the "royal" you, meaning the DPReview staff. DPReview is surely the ...
