Re: three recent shots

Don't knock prophoto. It is 16 bit with a wide colour space srgb is the smallest colour space and is usually 8 bit. You want as much data as you can while editing. Yes your monitor may only see srgb and not all the data, and may give you a nasty surprise when printing. If you feel that srgb is the ...

Re: three recent shots

Srgb for web posting always. I ended up using it for outsourced printing to get better results. These are quietly beautiful just as they are but have potential to be even more. These will be great once you apply your magic. I’d probably start by overlaying the first on each of the others to see wha...

Re: Canna Whimsy - Fingerwork #4

I love hidden treasures and surprises. I look at the image and say - "blurred/textured flower, yellows and oranges". Then I say, "nice clock". And then, "OMG, she is looking at me! - she is beautiful". Love how she peaks out of the blue into the yellow. The notes on the right side strike me as an a...

Re: Corel Photo Mirage makes motion graphics easy

you know your clients - and your business, if you can draw in 70 bucks worth of business, then it is worth it. Perhaps even if you can draw in half of it, at least you will have a (perhaps temporary) attractive/cool image in your portfolio that might grab some attention. And, you are an artist - mea...

Re: A Rework

it looks great, now for an easy way to do this. I assume that if something is in zone 6, the goal is to keep it there, but to spread out the zone 6 values within it's zone? And then do the next... Seems like you need (or use?) a mask that identifies a given zone allowing you to manipulate it isolate...

Re: Blueberries - Fingerwork #3

Not sure about how to place the hatching across that spot, but will figure out something to try. The great thing about working in PS is keeping your layers intact so you can go back and revisit just one particular element without having to retrace very step. edit>transform to stretch that entire ha...

Re: Cloud storage recommendation

I think printing them is the right answer. No, not all 140 thousand of them, but your best hundreds. As actual prints, you will have a better chance that human hands will reach into a box and look through them with a smile on their face. Thanks Piet. You echo thoughts. When I die, I doubt anyone wi...
