    Another C1 vs LR observation

    Adobe sent an email with a free trial to return to using their products. So I thought I would see where Lr currently is compared to C1. With us figuring out how to do sharpening in Lr for Fuji files correctly some time ago. Both editors are capable of good results. This time I noticed something...

    Linux users: more advice required.

    I havent switched yet, but I have sacrificed an external portable to Mint 19, which runs beautifully on my 2010 Macbook White, and have imported all my photos to Shotwell and have been playing with that + Rawtherapee... What are the rest of you doing? I’ve only looked at whats in the software...

    Mac and iOS users: RAW Power.

    If you don’t take a look at RAW Power, you’re nuts. Inexpensive to buy, and tons of features for photo editing... Alas, the latest for Mac is not compatible with High Sierra, I havent yet installed on my Mini which is not even running Catalina and probably wont... But on iOS13, its wonderful...

    Interesting times at On1

    I always liked their software but havent updated since On1Raw 2018... Might be time to take another look. https://www.on1.com/blog/new-on1-360-on1-photo-raw-2020-5-on1-photo-mobile-for-ios-ipados-and-android/

    Using a neutral gray backdrop with blending modes for portraits

    I intend to make a series of portraits of my parents generation, aunts and uncles. So I wanted a portable consistent backdrop. I really like the Annie Leibovitz using a custom Oliphant backdrop style look. The backdrops while absolutely stunning are pricey. Maybe one day. So I use a Wescott...

    My back and forth between LR and C1 finally at an end....

    Almost the entire time I have shot with Fuji, I have mainly used Capture One for my raw processing/editing. At one point even leaving Photoshop for Affinity Photo. This was due to C1 handling the Fuji files much better than LR. And on my editing computer, C1 ran faster. Some time in the last...

    Cropping Recommendations

    Maybe it's isolation, maybe boredom, maybe age, whatever... I need to re-check cropping advice from experts. Do I crop in Lightroom to the desired presentation; only crop for print or export; crop a virtual copy for a Collection? What is considered "Best Practice" in 2020?? Thanks.

    ACDSee? How is it these days?

    ACDSee has a sale going on. Does anyone have the current Mac version? What is it like? I remember the Old Days when it was lightening fast, slightly limited, no DAM, and Windows only. I have not seen it in awhile (obviously) and was hoping to get a quick update from people I respect. Thanks in...

    Workflow 2020

    I have to admit, with 15 years of digital photography I've never really honed a workflow. I used Lightroom to sort and develop and once in a while I'd finish in Photoshop or a plugin like NIK or Luminar, etc. When Adobe went subscription only, I wandered off to try and find something else but...

    Messing around with Photolemur 3, Luminar 3, DXO 9

    Early this AM I received an email inviting me to enter a contest and receive a free copy of Photolemur 3. So I did. It appears to be a fully automated program for improving photographs. I then played with the same photographs using DXO 9 (using one of the HDR presets) and Luminar 3 (using a...

    Mucking about with HDR software.

    It's not a secret that I'm a keen software collector and tryer-outer. When I was putting the 2020 version of On1 Photo RAW to the test I was disappointed with how it merged a 3 photo exposure bracket from the X100T (+1. 0, -1). So also owning Aurora 2019, Photomatix Pro 6.1.1 and Franzis HDR...

    For the users of Adobe products via the Creative Cloud, there is an update around.

    I randomly took two photos of a deck we were cleaning. One was for the front part and the next was the back half. I didn't make any effort to align them or anything. A while later, I received a notification that my new 'stitched panorama' was ready for viewing. Huh? Well, when I looked at...

    Correcting horizons: is less rotation always better?

    Hi to all signal processing experts. Sometimes my pic is off by 2.5 degrees; sometimes by -0.14. Intuitively one could imagine that the image degrades less if you have to perform less rotation. Then again, rotation by a multiple of 90 is effectively lossless. I currently assume that the image...

    Luminar 3.1.1

    Some time ago, I bought Luminar and am pleased with it. A couple of days ago, I downloaded the latest version -- Luminar 3.1.1 -- and it definitely boots faster ... noticeably faster, even with my ancient Dell workstation that is running Win10 with only 4 gigs memory. I'm impressed. Cheers, Jock

    File sizes from different editors

    I noticed something while comparing final images from LR Classic, C1, and Luminar 3. The file sizes were different from each editor. The LR file being the smallest around 12mb. C1 around 22mb. And Luminar 3 at 30mb. All were edited as closely as possible, using the same color profile at output.

    Is anyone using Affinity Photo? At the moment it's only available for Mac but there is supposedly a Windows Beta arriving later this year. I'm curious if anyone is using it and, if so, what they think of it.

    Sony Software for camera connection

    Good day. After a post about focusing, I came in front a problem of "precise" focusing. Idea is, if possible, to view on comp. the same image, in real time, as on cam. This way the focusing should be easier, convenient. Is it possible, does something like this exist? Going on with...
