  1. Intentional camera movement is exactly what it says: you move the camera during exposure. I spent some time deciding whether ICM is just a gimmick or a valid technique -- I think it's both! Done well, it's very striking. Here's a couple of examples I shot yesterday ... These are a couple of the Christmas decorations at Shugborough, Staffordshire (UK), the National Trust property that was the home of photographer Patrick Lichfield. Here they are again in "proper" photos ... The dashed appearance in the second shot is down to the LED lights, which flicker at 100 Hz (mains frequency is 50 Hz), and something I hadn't expected. HOW-TO It's a very simple technique. Set your camera to a slow exposure, from, say, 1/4 second or much slower, depending how much movement you want. In bright conditions you may need a neutral density filter. Press the button, and as soon as you hear the shutter open move the camera. Simples! Remember that the trails will go in the OPPOSITE direction to the camera movement. You may need to have several goes to get the hang of it, and before you get a shot you like ... but that's not unusual in photography! There are quite a lot of ICM photos on the internet to give you more ideas, and there's quite a bit of variation in the kind of results you can get: interesting, abstract or just weird.
  2. Hello there, I installed the attached ICM on Windows 10 and associated it with the printer. The AD print dialog does not allow selection of this profile (though it shows other user-installed profiles such as the one for my monitor). Xerox VersaLink C500_C505.icm
  3. The default "stock/generic" color profiles available to choose from for printing do not include any CMYK options for color laser printers, only a variety of RGB profiles.
  4. Hi, I'm quite new to digital photography and am trying to understand profiles. I've read coranda's post https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/11293-ap-printing-with-icc-printer-profiles/?p=48255 and generally can follow that. However it still doesn't solve my problem. My aim is that I'm trying to create a jpg with a profile built in which I have downloaded from a printing company. It's not an icc file but has the extension icm Following the company's instructions, I downloaded the icm profile and copied it to Macintosh HD/Library/color sync/profiles where it now sits with various others like Black & White.icc, etc. Following coranda's print instructions... "In the print dialogue, at the bottom, there should be a button that says "Show Details". Click that. There you will see a drop down list that probably has "Affinity Photo" selected. Click on that list and choose "Colour Matching" and make sure that "ColorSync" is enabled." This did produce a drop-down list and the Fuji icm was there. So I guess if I had that printer sitting here beside me it would work. However I want to generate a file that I can email to the printer for them to print, so it's not quite the solution. Following the soft proof instructions, I added a soft proof adjustment layer, but the Fuji profile was not listed - it has many profiles of papers and devices listed, but not the Fuji one or any of those in the path mentioned above. If it did I guess I could export the image as normal with the profile built in. If I do a file/export to generate the jpg, I had expected to find some way to pick up the profile as in the case of printing. However I don't see any way to do that. Can anyone please explain how to get this profiled file? Thanks Stuart
