    Probably a bit "overcooked" for most tastes, but I liked the way it came out.

    Sharkey got a reaction from pualv in Batch Processing of Open files?   
    Hello all,
     
    I use FVR to browse my images, it is fast, reliable and I like it.
     
    With that in mind when I have opened a number of images in AF how do I go about using Batch Processes on them? The ADD button opens the 'Finder' but does not show the files already open in AF.
     
    I realise I can choose from the finder by using the file names shown in AF but this seems counterintuitive and convoluted when my chosen images are already open IN AF.
     
    I regularly want to export jpg (small and basic) for my wife's use on the internet and my own postings and basic batch/macros are all that is needed.
     
    This oddity is my only question on this process.
     
    Regards.   Sharkey

    The forums are not "mine" and I will need to run this by other interested parties. I hope they agree with us.
    Even if they don't get split, I am willing to "tag" all the posts here, as long as the filter by "forum and tag" works well (i need to check). So seeing only the ones you are interested in should be easier either way

    Working for a printed output is different to backlit screens/web etc.
    The image produced in a digital studio/darkroom can and mostly is wrong until it is printed.
    Personally I over sharpen for web posting and this has been commented on, then when I have not done so the image has been 'critiqued' as soft. Go figure - I believe is the American response to this circumstance.
    My older inkjet prints are softer than I would like now but pleased the customer at the time. It is quite an expensive step but trial prints sent by mail for approval often save embarrasment.
    Oh as an aside. If your image is what you consider art then I think it is more a like/don't like response required and a possible reason.
    Personally my images drift towards the art side and away from the reportage or correct record of the subject so critiques no longer concern me. If I ask about a specific part or feel of the image it is usually to try and find a method that will give a closer representation of my intent (skill set improvement).
    Like/don't like good. Tell me what I have done 'wrong' NAH!. You have no concept of what I was trying to do - unless I have told ya!.
    Oh yer. Sellotape over the the end of a toilet roll was my first wedding filter. The bride did laugh (luckily) but also liked the result. That was one 40 years ago Hmmmm best forgotten.

    Hi Sharkey,
    from Affinity's perspective you should have no issues using dual monitors while using the app in separated mode

    Sharkey reacted to Old Bruce in Dual Displays?   
    You want the image you will be editing on the 2nd monitor and all the palettes on the first Eizo correct?
    I'll be honest, it has been years since I used dual monitors so that is several Operating Systems back but it worked with the caveat that at times various programs would 'forget' where the various windows were supposed to go. The Mac OS System Preferences was quite useful in setting it up, I got used to keeping it open all the time for maintaining the orientation. One of the hassles I had was just getting used to the cursor changing size as it crossed the border, I would lose sight of it.

    Yes. But it's actually more improvised than thinking about what I make out of this 'weird' tree shaped by the wind. Maybe it's similar to the part of humans who just use nature and do not respect it properly.

    Sharkey reacted to Chris B in Studio   
    Development weren't keen on making them open together from the View > Studio menu however, they have agreed to look at adding Library to the 'Left Studio' as currently only Macro is set to open.
    So once this has been implemented, you will have to just go to View > Studio > Enable Left Studio and both will be open. As long as that option is left enabled, both Macro and Library will open as default for any new projects.

    The Art of Computer Programming (TAOCP) - reference , I believe Mr. Knuth will say here at least, that to devise an algorithm is an Art of it's own.

    When will you ALL realise that these manipulations do NOT make original images.
    They are obvious, boring and derivative.
    Most ART is derivative Bach>mozart>>Beethoven etc....
    But really try and see that the application on of an algorithm written bt an algorithm is not 'art'!
    J'esus.
    Create or not create - but please do not believe that destortion and digital manipulation is creative unless!!!!!
    You, yourself can create and recreate that process your self.
    No apologies.

    Sharkey got a reaction from Lovemonkey in Posing daughter   
    The first edit was to me OK-ish.
    The second edit (working from the first) however left grey streaks because of the desaturation used to remove the 'magenta caste'.
    I realise this is all subjective.
    I would therefor not dream to try to do better as that is also 'subjective'.
    Realism, character, accuracy, point of the image capture; are three variables that are all up for opinion and on line comparison is usually disastrous anyway.
    I would have advised a little general desaturation of the young ladies face/ hair and a little sharpening round the eyes (not just the eye itself).
    Selecting a different colour balance may have also been a little more subtle.
    If the cushion (right middle) is in fact white and accuracy was a target then selecting that area as a visual aid when changing the colour temperature might also assist.
