In Topic: Editing using a Graphic Tablet?

10 December 2014 - 07:50 PM

I have the same question in December 2014 as Nige Wade had in 2011 ... 


Santa is coming to town and asking if I want a GRAPHIC TABLET for editing in Lightroom / Photoshop. I'm the queen of backscatter - so thought a TABLET might be helpful.


Any thoughts about which is a reasonably priced, easy to use tablet for use with Adobe Creative Cloud.


I'm not a power use - so easy is good!


Thanks so much!

In Topic: Color Variations between Lightroom and Photoshop Elements

14 November 2014 - 08:14 PM

Honestly I didn't even know what an ACR version was - let alone whether or not they were compatible between programs ... but  Bill was right.

My Lightroom V. 4.4.1" uses ACR V. 7.4

Photoshop Elements V.12 uses ACR V. 8.5.0236


Not sure it those are incompatible - but I can see why they might be.


I have calibrated all my monitors to sRGB and set sRGB to the color space for both programs.


I'm still not able to open a photo, from native RAW in Lightroom, into RAW when I "open in"  PS Elements (it opens in JPEG). 


This is way over my head - but I appreciate you sticking with me.  Any other suggestions?




PS.... ADAM - the picture I attached is of Nadya with the sting ray ( from Alex Mustard's Digital Madness Week this September).  I tried the spot remover in lightroom - but I have SO many spots - that I need something more to fix them (unless I'm doing something wrong). Elements works a lot better.

Thanks for the reply Bill!  I REALLY appreciate it.

Sounds like a dumb questions - but how does one check that the ACR version is the correct one? 

Someone else suggested that the issue had to do with the image being in its native RAW format in Lightroom when I tried to bring it across to PS Elements.  They suggested saving the image a PNG before trying to bring the image into PS Elements.  I have tried saving as a TIFF and PSD - but not a PNG.  So very complicated for a novice like me.... 


In Topic: Color calibration for multiple monitors - on the cheap

Thanks for the info...  Sounds like I need to buy a device.  No "eyeballing it"


Spyder or colormunki ?  There seems to be quite a wide range in price - $80-$600 USD at B&H.

Which model do you recommend?



In Topic: WTB Nauticam Panasonic GX1 Housing

16 June 2014 - 08:46 AM

I have a GX1 Nauticam housing.  GREAT, compact, tough.  Nice thing about this system is that I can reuse all the lenses, etc.

I'm considering upgrading - but still on the fence.

Just had it cleaned and serviced since returning from Lembeh (kind of gritty there). 

Hasn't been wet since.


What all do you need?
