    Photobucket changed terms of usage to sell your photos (via biometrics) to train AI and opting you IN by default

    Photobucket has announced it will change the terms of usage for other service and automatically OPT YOU IN by default (if you do not reply to them in 2 weeks) to allow them to use biometric information (any information that can identify you including face, fingerprints, body, specific aspects of...

    Photoshop's AI - are we moving away from "photography" into the realm of pretence and artifice?

    Some thought provoking points being raised in this article Coming from a more journalistic / documentary style myself, I do balk at this

    Nikon Showcase Nikon AI 300mm f4.5

    This lens requires a bit of physical strength, in order to carry it all day. No wonder there is a big tripod collar on the lens. It's there for a reason. Second thing I noticed when shooting with the lens was the minimum focus distance of 4 meters. No macro stuff with this one...

    Nikon Question about pre AI/ P Nikkor lenses and FTZ adapter

    Hope everyone’s day yesterday (it’s just gone midnight where I am) went through stress free - as it’s over, I thought I’d get back into the gear related discussions. I just wanted user confirmation (maybe experiences?) from anyone of using pre-ai Nikkor lenses with the FTZ adapter, that is...

    Sony Sony A7 iv with Sony 35mm f/1.8 (and helped by Ai)

    More nightclub shots from Electrowerkz in Islington North London. The first 4 are real people but backgrounds and a couple of bits (like the web) were added in PS Generative Fill. It's quite good fun....addictive actually! Nice bunch of people there. 3 floors of boom boom boom music and...

    With AI here - do I really need a camera?

    I've kind of already hit the point where I feel like any shot I am about to take has already been done, so why am I pushing the shutter. But not with AI, I am wondering why I need a camera at all. Fantastical pictures will be at everyone's finger tips such that taking a more "traditional"...

    AI Are there EXIF or any metadata tags for "AI" applications?

    A conversation about Photoshop's "Generative" fill features got me going down the proverbial rabbit hole and I ended up playing around with it to have some fun experiment. I was surprised by how easily I could start with a literal blank canvas in PS and then use the generative tools to generate...

    Adobe Ai (Beta)

    Spent all afternoon playing with Adobe Ai. It's an interesting proposition that not all (photographers) will like....but some will love. I am half way between the 2 but only because my satisfaction rate is predicated by my lack of "Ai Eloquence". All the photos attached to this post had pretty...

    On1 Photo Raw 2023 vs ACDSee and Topaz Photo AI combo 2023

    Attached is a photo of a photo that I processed both in On1 Photo Raw and in ACDSee with sharpening and Denoise handled by Topaz Photo AI. I tried to duplicate the same overall luminance and color in both, and "sorta" tried to duplicate the cropping level. Shot with an Olympus EM10 and a kit...

    Big LR update- AI NR (Lightroom and Classic)

    Yesterday (April 18, 2023) Adobe entered the modern noise removal arena. Yesterday’s release includes real AI noise reduction in Lightroom and Lightroom Classic. I have been a big fan of DxO Photo Lab for the Deep Prime noise reduction. Until now I think it has been the best there is with Topaz...

    LR AI DeNoise vs Topaz AI DeNoise

    A month or so ago, I needed some help to rescue some portraits I had done during a Northern Lights tour. After downloading several different trials, I ended up going with Topaz Photo AI. I found it to work really well on people in my portraits as well as for my Northern Light Photos. But I was...

    Software Interesting Find For Topaz Photo AI - Upscaling

    I was working with pictures from the Minolta Maxxum 7D and Minolta 135mm lens today. Ran the RAW files through Lightroom, but decided to see about using Topaz Photo AI for the sharpening. Topaz Photo AI auto detects and states what it thinks it needs to do. To my surprise, for a lot of the...

    Ai generated images / art

    Ai is having an increasing influence in photography. Certainly in our phones, but also in editing software and, more recently, in cameras themselves. With this in mind, I thought it might be interesting to have a thread composed of images generated entirely by ai. This is a trend (like it, or...

    Micro 4/3 How is the E-M1X and OM-1 with Animal AI Tracking (Specifically dogs)

    Hello, a bit of a out of left field question (don't ask me why am I using a baseball saying, I don't even understand baseball and I don't even know where, when or how I even heard it): How is the Olympus E-M1X and/or OM-1 handing the autofocus with Animal AI Tracking (I don't remember if it has...

    Upgraded to Mercalli V6 AI

    After 4 years or so of using V5, I saw that 6 was out. Now with Dual IS on my G9's I get very steady video. That being said sometimes you just need the extra or have to save an important take. 5 was very good, 6 is magic with the AI. I have a 12 core / 24 thread with 12 gig GPU and 3600 mz 64...

    Nikon Showcase AI, AI-S, and AI-P Lenses

    Didn’t see a thread for the lovely vintage Nikon (and more modern Voigtlander) glass we have in F mount! Was testing a 105mm f/2.5 AI-S this evening and loved how beautiful the rendering was. I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I figured I’d make a thread and see what vintage examples others...

    Software OM Workspace (former Olympus) new AI Noise Reduction

    With the release of the new OM-1 camera, OM System has released an updated version of Workspace as well. (This piece of software is underrated in my opinion - anyway) It comes with a new AI Noise Reduction add-on that will work with the new OM-1 orf files, but with some Olympus models as well...

    Manual Lens Nikon 35mm Ai f/2

    I find 35mm to be a very versatile FL for shooters looking to achieve many things. I do a lot of hiking, & this beautiful little lens is usually invited. jt

    Nikon Fun with a 45/2.8 AI P

    Have a new lens to work out and went out to do so. Hint of cool in the air, frost warning for tonight, the birches are mostly changed already and the maples have begun.
