  • Created discussion thread 'Best' online user gallery
    OK just looking for opinions on what everyone thinks is the 'best' on line gallery. Somewhere that you can post 'quality' images and get 'quality' feedback. I've used a few and mostly use 500px but ...
  • The problem with working with the file is that everyone has 'flattened' the arms. No texture or shadow. In reality working with the raw file would give you the best chance of recovering some ...
  • I agree about not relying on presets. They work differently on different images. Learn to use levels and curves etc. regards
  • Just a comment on the comments. I earlier may the comment about the purple tones. But on reflection I'm not so sure. Joshua Tree is subject to haze/pollution, just as is most of the south west. As ...
  • The type of screw driver you use will depend on the type of screw you want to tighten. Likewise the type of saw you use will also depend on the task at hand. My point being that no one tool will ...
  • +1. Tone down the purple just a tad but don't eliminate it. Nice photo over all though. Well done. regards
  • Replied in Snowbirds
    A couple from Colorado. regards
  • Thanks. HDR gets a bad wrap. HDR software is just a tool. Understanding how to use that tool is where much of the bad wrap comes from. Often simple tests can be a good starting point. regards
  • These sorts of comparison tests can be very misleading. There are too many variables. For starters unadjusted RAW files can give 'strange' results. ie was white balance correct? Jpegs have way too ...
  • Need more information to get an answer. The output is related to the input! What files size etc are you putting into Photomatix? regards
  • Yeah. I almost ended up with a broken leg and in hospital. So the lens wasn't so important at the time. (I was checking the camera while walking over rocks!!!). I'm also of the mind that the lens ...
  • I have the same issue with my D7100 and Tokina 12-24. Happens more often than I would like it to. I haven't been able to pin point a cause. But it often happens in very cold weather. I have turned ...
  • If I remember rightly AfterShot was sold as a cut down version of AfterShotPro initially. Then it seems Corel has quietly let it slip away as it was competing for the Pro version. I also looked on ...
  • You need to look up the Corel site and compare After Shot 3 with After Shot Pro. I think you will find many 'extras' in the 'Pro' version. I nolonger use ASP so I can't give a direct answer. Best ...

    There is always an upside. The fires will kill off many pine beetles.  As for climate change!!! Well choose what ever facts or data you like to support your side of the 'debate'. History, real ...
  • The reality is that NX-D won't get you far down the editing road. While it is an excellent raw converter, for Nikon raws, as you have discovered it is somewhat limited with the lack of tools and ...
  • Nice one Ray. Colours suit the character really well. regards
  • I can get onto the AfterShotPro forum. But as soon as I click on the PSP forum I'm sent to the Corel Australia site. Promoting PSPx9.  If this is Corels idea of selling us PSPx9 then it will be ...
  • Thanks but that link also gets me to the Corel promo page. Every Google search I do comes up with the same results. regards
  • Created discussion thread Corel PSP user forum ????
    I often use the Corel user to user forum. (PSP). Today when I tried it all I got was a Corel advertising page. Every other link to the forum results in the same promotion page. Anyone else having ...
