Join Wetpixel in Isla Mujeres for the 2017 Sailfish Safari. We will be there from 16 to 22 February 2017, snorkeling, photographing and filming these amazing charismatic animals and the stunning baitball action that results when they hunt the sardines that are in the waters surrounding the island during the winter.

There are a few spaces available on the workshop that I am running on behalf of Alex Mustard to the Red Sea from 11 to 18 July. As Alex can't be there, he will be presenting the topics via video, while I am running the feedback sessions and any questions that arise.


Alex has promised that his video sessions will cover many of the "new" techniques in his book!


If you are interested, please get in contact with me via PM or via email


Many thanks



Mac Pro graphics card choices with Lightroom

07 May 2016 - 11:09 PM

My 2010 Mac Pro has a Nvidia FX4800 graphics card installed. Lightroom 6/CC2015 can use Graphics Processor Acceleration to speed up and make controls more responsive in the develop mode.


Despite it having Open GL 3.3, the FX4800 is one of the cards that Adobe do not support with Lightroom's GPU acceleration.


So I guess the question is, for those that have cards that support it, firstly, which cards are they, and secondly, does it seem to make big difference?


Separately, I tried to install Color Finale yesterday (for Final Cut Pro) and it needs OpenCL 1.2, while the FX4800 only has 1.1... :(


Thank you!




What is allowed in this forum!

04 April 2016 - 08:28 AM

Dear all,


I have note that commercial trip organizers are posting link to trip reports about their own trips in this forum.


May I remind all commercial posters of our commercial posting rules:  


In your area of commercial endeavor, only factual posts and support posts are allowed. So if you are a housing manufacturer or retailer, you can post opinions about diving destinations, but not opinions about any underwater housing on the market (including your own).


Hence, if you are a commercial operator, you may not post opinion trip reports about your own (or other's) trips. If you lead trips or sell them this pretty much precludes you posting about them.


​Please note too, that links to external sites are not ideal. If you plan to post a trip review, please post your pictures, text and video into the forum, rather than linking to an external site.


Many thanks
