In Topic: LR 2.7 and copyright notice

29 June 2010 - 08:30 AM

I am using Light room 2.7 and i have found how to add the copyright water mark but i need a magnifying glass in order to see it. i remember seeing somewhere that i can enlarge it without resorting to plug ins.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

thanks.



Try using this plugin. If you want to export more than 10 images at once you have to donate. Guess the minimum donation is 0.1$ so that should be affordable

not all fonts work, so try a few different.

In Topic: Stop whaling in Norway

12 April 2010 - 05:38 AM

Google translater has done a good job of translating this, which is impressive.

On the topic of whaling.

Norway is one of the three countries in the world who defy the international ban on commercial whaling. This is inconsistent with its reputation for being an animal-friendly country. Norway officially admit that at least one of five hunted whales must endure prolonged suffering before death occurs.


I think they capture at the moment is defined as non commercial. It is supposedly done for research or some such reason and they just happen to sell the byproducts, or was that the seals??

I haven't seen much about whaling in Norwegian media lately. After reading this post I decided to see what google would turn up on the subject. I found a few articles from mid February 2010 about the possibility that IWC is going allow commercial capture of whales again. The articles around this topic seemed more concerned about what to do about the meat, that none seems to want, than opposition the actual capture.

After that I could only find a few articles about how activists are trying to prevent whaling.

Which leads me to think that a letter written in danish to our (arrogant) prime minister is not going to have any effect.

In Topic: Need divecomputer logs

I have to say that would be a awesome piece of software to have. I have e-mailed you a export file of oa few dives, let me know if you need more.

In Topic: Focus light - What's needed?

16 March 2010 - 04:43 AM

I have been using a few different techniques for getting focus. I often carry a focus light mounted to my camera to shine a light where I want to get focus. I have also used my main tourch a halcyon 21w canister light to get focus, and then move the light cone out of the image before taking the image. If I forget to move the cone out of the image it will be overexposed in the area covered my the canister light, or underexposed everywhere else.
Lately however I have been experimenting with out focus light. Instead enabling the camera to fire the flash to help get focus. Since I'm using optical connection to my two inon z240 they also light up, an the entire underwater scene lights up. A few times yesterday I was unable to get focus this way. I then used the primary light technique to get focus, but the images always returned way to dark. So if the strobes are not able to light up the scene enough to get focus, they will not be able to light up the scene enough for a good image either. I'm able on my camera to use this teqnique even if the flash is not to be fired when the image is taken, so it seems reliable enough. Though I have only tested it on a couple of dive in Mexico.

In Topic: What to get for caves? Strobe, lights, other?

15 March 2010 - 01:36 PM

I have been taking some images in the cenotes of Mexico over the last weeks. Some of them can be found at this location: http://gallery.me.co...oisland#gallery They are sorted under sub albums one fore each cenote.
I'm using a Canon 7D with 2x Inon z240. I'm new to this out fit so I'm probably not using it to its fullest. But it should give a impression of how much light the z240 provides. The images are mostly taken in the cavern zone, or just inside the cave zone as my cave instructor didn't want me bringing the camera into the cave. But that is all going to change tomorrow when I reach 25 cave dives and are allowed to bring it all the way in.
