    Re: Photo tool could fix bad images

    That's about the way I see it too. Hopefully, websites that protect against right-click downloading also will protect against this kind of unauthorized mining.

    It seems like there's always some...

    Re: Pre order leopard?

    I might just hold off & lurk in the discussion boards post-release before deciding to upgrade. As far as I can tell, the new features, though quite desirable overall, are not urgently needed in my...

    Thanks, Ray.

    I thoroughly enjoyed your RAW workflow chronology. The type of photography you do for a living is quite different from what I do. I take fewer images in the first place (by at least two orders of...

    Re: I am NEVER shooting raw again

    I'm sure you didn't intend it but one can infer from this statement that the additional dynamic range one can recover from a RAW file is only needed when the exposure is off. I'd like to make sure...

    Re: E-pro (E-P1) not enough resolution

    I keep hearing/reading about magazines demanding high-resolution images and this amazes me. So often, I am underwhelmed at the quality of images I see in some fairly upscale magazines -- noisy,...

    Re: E-pro (E-P1) not enough resolution

    No. I do a lot of landscape photography and tend toward smaller apertures. I'm a bit worried about diffraction limit issues at 10 MP and it could only be worse at 12 or 14. I also worry about noise...

    No thanks...

    ...though I can see why some folks might have use for it.

    I've never used any of the scene modes in any of my SLRs or DSLRs. As long as they don't get in my way, it's OK by me if they're there...

    Re: Here's the reason I put up with it...

    Well, if ISO 1600 is the reason to use Studio, I won't miss it. That's good to know. My ISO dial never exceeds 400 and only very rarely exceeds 100.

    These days, I use LightZone quite a lot and I...

    Re: Studio 2 is a total disaster

    I'm in full agreement with you, Doreen. With so many competent RAW workflow solutions on the market these days, I can't imagine what Olympus is thinking. It is interesting that Studio 2 was very late...
  12. Re: Hum... I wonder if ArcSoft built Olympus Software?

    Interesting... The last bullet in the feature list is "Support for Windows and Mac (including Mac Intel)" but there's no Mac trial download.:dontknow:

    Anyway, I downloaded the Windows trial and...

    Re: Photomatix Workflow Questions

    I've done it both ways but the best results come from multiple files exposed 0.5 to 1 stop apart. I have had some success improving images by using the Photomatix Tone Mapper plug-in on a single file...

    Re: Noise reduction in Lightroom?

    Lightroom does apply noise reduction to ORFs. It saves the user's settings in a database record indexed to the original ORF (or in an XMP sidecar file or both) and applies the noise reduction when...

    Re: Noise reduction in Lightroom?

    As Matthew said, your best bet is to wait for LR 1.1. Adobe has not released the SDK yet so third-party plug-ins are still a long way off. Supposedly, the noise reduction in LR 1.1 is a big...

    Re: Photomatix Workflow Questions

    As Marcof said, it all depends on the source images.

    I usually make some preliminary adjustments in Lightroom and then export 16-bit tiffs to combine in Photomatix. Once I'm satisfied with the...

    Version 2.03 has been up on this site for a while (trial version). I believe I downloaded it at least two weeks ago. :hmm:
