This forum gives you a very limited time to edit posts. This is to prevent posts being edited some time after posting and the threads hence becoming non sensical.


Rather than edit the post, simply add another post to your thread with the new/changed information. This has the added benefit of bumping your post back up in the forum.


All the best



In Topic: Mac Pro graphics card choices with Lightroom

19 June 2016 - 06:27 AM

Hi Carol and Drew,


Thanks for both your inputs. My Mac Pro is a late 2010 so I am OK at present for the latest OS version.


I ended up getting a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2048 MB card. It is  flashed version, but it has two DVI outs which suits my current set up and will output 4K via its Display Port for the future.


It has sorted out the performance problems with Lightroom and Color Finale.


My externals are a G-Tech 4 Bay eSata RAID and an Orico 5 Bay USB 3 RAID. I use the internal drives as a 4 Bay RAID too. I also have an old Drobo (which is not very good) for some already redundant backups.


Thanks again for your inputs



In Topic: magic filters?

19 June 2016 - 06:03 AM



When you do a global what balance correction in post, you create a (global) color shift. This typically means that you end up with very washed out/grey looking blues in wide angle scenes when underwater as the white balance target (sand/aluminum tank etc.) is actually quite blue due to the lack of red light.


What the filter does is to remove some of the blue light from the capture, which means that you can effect global correction (either underwater or in post) and retain the deep rich natural blues that actually occur.
