Hi Lemmy and llareggub,

Thanks so much for your repliesGrin

What I hope to record and show (video) is how I help restore peoples historic photographs, remove creases colourise etc but as you know it takes blooming ages but I volunteer (for free) to make a smile ......sooo I thought if I could record it and increase the speed so I could give a quick view of the work entailed and so people can see the difference.

There will be no talking as I hope to have some nice quick music so people can see the progression.

I tried that rob but could only find a thread about some software from 2010 but that was some time ago. I have never done a video before so was asking should I use software or should I use a webcam ?

Watermarking photos
Hi PeachesMum,

I have created a little "Action" that I made in Photoshop, I use it on a regular basis.

1.Create New blank layer
2.Use the Type tool in White to type your copyright
3 Make the type bevelled and set the blend mode to lighten about 30% normally does it for me

If you save this as an action it helps quickly repeat it on other photographs.

Unauthorised Image Usage.... and some.... ;-)
I was in a "local town" tourist information office browsing places to visit, when I overheard a conversation where they were looking for a photograph of the "local town" for the booklet. The lady in charge said that the image they had used was no good and they should "simply google" for a good one...!!! I was shocked for so many reasons, this area of the UK has the most talented photographers and a club but it had not passed her mind to just ask..Sad but she just thought it was ok to use images of the web..

Problems Setting and saving Colour Profile using "Photoshop Elements 11"
Hello,

I am trying to help a friend who has just started using Photoshop Elements 11 which I am not familiar with.

I have downloaded the colour profile from the external printing company and saved to the desktop. I then installed it on the C drive/Windows/System32/Spool/Drivers/Colour as instructed. I then closed down and restarted the computer.

When I try to convert to profile for printing I can not see the colour profile? What am I doing wrong??

Hi Andy,

It is good to hear from someone with a similar set up. I have not managed to try another test yet but I seemed to have tried all Fstops but no stars??? My ISO levels have been around 400 so maybe I will drop the ISO and try again starting with F8-f22ish

Nikon D7100 looking for a nice "Starburst effect" in my Night Photography
Hello,

I have recently upgraded from a D200 to a shiney new D7100 but have not managed to find my usual "star burst effect" on evening lights that I loved so much with my D200.

I most often use my Sigma 10-20mm which used to find F11 as the sweet spot for this lens and camera.

I have googled this camera but have only found one photograph that illustrates this effect, a 35mm at F16 has anyone any advice to help me?

Best Photographic Paper for a 6 x 4inch Printer
Hello

I am on my second HP Photosmart 335 Photo printer and I love it for doing quick prints.

The HP paper I had been using from PC World is now no longer stocked and to be honest is getting more difficult and expensive to get hold of.

HP Premium Photo Paper 240g/m2 was the original and best paper I started with
HP Everyday Photo Paper 200g/m2 I tried but the ink didn't seem to print as well..: (
HP Premium Plus Paper 280g/m2 seems ok but expensive and difficult to get hold of.

Does anyone have any recommendations of what different makes of paper would be good to try???

Astrophotography with a Nikon D200
I have been waiting weeks to try some Astrophotography and last night I got my chance, and here is the best of my first attempt.

I would really like some advice from people who take these types of Photographs with Nikon Camera's as I understand my camera is not the best type of camera for this type of photography.

My settings were ISO 200 F5.6 30 secs and used a little torch to light up the building, I had tried the ISO at 400 but there was just too much noise.

Questions I have in general is does noise reduce if I found a darker spot ? But any advice on the subject would be really great.

I tried this link before Christmas and I was really shocked!! what you do is go to a webpage showing your own images and then click the link, what it does is bring up any pictures that look to be the same or similar.

I found a Hockey team was using one of my seasonal pictures, a you tube user using them a profile pictures and a host of bloggers one of had even cropped my watermark.

Snapper thank you for the advice about the foam seal, I did not know this.

Eddie I have read the reviews thanks for finding them for me

Jonny your pictures are really beautiful, I have seen this filter advertised but I was worried about cross threading the filter on the lens, my husband says he should rent me out to test technology.

Andy and Jack have you had your lee filters long ? I have never used glass filters before as I use the Griturn filters which I replace once a year (scratches mainly)

Thanks for taking the time to reply

Hitech 85mm Pro Stopper 10 v's Lee Big Stopper
Have really wanted a Lee Big Stopper for over a year and now I have some Christmas money to buy one. I was considering the Lee one but am convinced it will be short lived as I am prone to being a little clumsy. Had looked at the Hitech but was put off by light leeks and colour casks but it looks like they have improved on this since 2010/2011.

Has anyone used the Hitech one ? Do I need a separate filter holder or can I just use the one that I have been using for my ND Hitech filters ??

Selling and Presenting Photographs to sell at a local Craft Fair
Hello,

I have been toying around with the idea of selling some of my prints at our local craft fair but have no experience of doing this.

I had thought of picking say 15-20 local works, getting them printing and mounted on board and then sealing them in a cellophane envelope with a few frames as an option. But what size should I print and mount to ??? also any advice on where to purchase cellophane envelopes would be really helpful.

The fair is to be held over Christmas at our local art centre.

Abandoned Building with Asbestos Warning
It is frightening to know that it was used so frequently in everyday products and it is causing so much pain and worry today, I am sorry Steven that this has effected you so badly.

The site was in Cheshire an old Building, that was not really secure as Dog walkers were using the grounds and the buildings were all open no doors or windows left. Perhaps people don't worry when these buildings as easily so accessible? On top of that if she takes a good photograph she then "moves" elements so nobody else can take the same photograph - words fail me!!!

Her disregard of my feelings after this day has put me off going out with her, I guess her car could have asbestos fibres in it ???

Thanks for all your replies on the subject.

Best Way to Back up Photo Work
I have been into photography for four years and have all my photographs stored on my PC but now it is full up and causing problems with the running of Photoshop. I am thinking about buying 4 external drives and storing a years worth of pictures on each drive but I have some files as a RAW File, PDF File and as a Jpeg file (for printing) should I save them all ? I was also thinking of printing the best work and then labeling them so I can find them at a later date on the external Drives.

I would love to know what everybody does and is this the best idea ??
