    How far would you expect to pull the shadows up from ?

    My experience is very different from yours. I bought an a6000 a few years ago as a walkabout. I regularly pull the shadows up by a couple of stops (in Lightroom) - sometimes more. I've just gone back and revisited a 3 shot HDR bracket, at +-2 stops, and increased the underexposed file by 2 stops...

    Are inkjet photo printers any good?

    I use Ilford paper in my Epson P600, and generate my own ICC profile using a ColorMunki Photo. Ilford's downloadable profiles are only slightly inferior. The major (quality) paper suppliers like Ilford, Permajet, Fotospeed offer downloadable profiles and, I believe permajet/Fotospeed will send...

    Adobe flexing their muscles

    Went to Adobe support and got online help. After a few checks to ensure I was genuine they gave me a link to download LR6.14 and stayed online until I reported success, Mixed feelings. Disappointed that I had the problem because they really want us all to subscribe to CC, but pleased with the...

    Adobe flexing their muscles

    All the links I can find on the above 2 replies seem to lead to Lightroom 6.0 installer. I've already done this the kosher way via adobe's website using my paid for account. Still can't find a way to update the original release Doh!

    SSD and HDD ‘workflow’

    Firstly, note that I'm not a pro shooting assignments for paying customer, so I don't need massive storage capacity, RAID, etc.. However, I shoot sport so I may return from an event with 1000 raw files. My Windows desktop has a 500 gb SSD with the operating system and applications, and an...

    Best Post processing software?

    DAM means Digital Asset Management - where Digital Assets are your image files. When using Lightroom, you need to "import" your image files into Lightrooms database. This allows you to assign keywords, rate images etc and search the database using queries such as: keyword Camera type Lens date...

    Best Post processing software?

    Affinity Photo is a very capable substitute for Photoshop. However, the raw conversion capabilities fall a bit short IMHO. For raw processing I use ON1 PhotoRaw2020. You can make the raw conversion inON1, then send it to Affinity for pixel level editing without an intermediate step. Also you...

    Lightfield cameras?

    We had a demo of a Lytro Illium at our camera club a few years ago - by the UK agent. Initially, viewing via a digital projector, the results looked fine, and the technology seemed amazing. However, as soon as we started asking questions, about pixel count and resolution etc and the ability to...

    Are inkjet photo printers any good?

    I'm a camera club member using an Epson P600. Results are excellent. I see other members' prints from Canon printers and commercial print shops - it's impossible to tell which is which. I print at home for personal satisfaction. I can say "I took it, I processed it, I printed it, I mounted it -...
