Re: Seeking suggestions on best workflow

I've never used the speck removal tool, so am unsure if it would work on these images as some of the birds that need to be cloned out are quite large (not a typical speck). The image dimensions are 6000 x 4000 and some of the birds (including extended wing/movement blur) are up to a fifth or sixth t...

Re: Seeking suggestions on best workflow

Just wanted to add a quick follow-up and say Jonathan's suggested workflow has been working remarkably well. Of course, the downside is the number of images that I've had to do this on!!

Re: Seeking suggestions on best workflow

Holy smokes Jonathan, what a unique suggestion. Can't wait to play with this one.

Sort of figured I would have to do at least a little bit of the manual stuff for each image.

Seeking suggestions on best workflow

First, I have been away from the computer and Internet for the last 1-2 weeks (5 year old grand-daughter visited from out-of-country so everything, I mean everything, else stopped until she recently departed), so just discovered the latest PWP8 news. Congrats to Jonathan, et al, (if there is an et a...

Re: In praise of the Watercolor transform for more than watercolor effect

Charles2, I have used the Watercolor transform quite a bit over the last couple years and almost always use it with the dimensions at the same size rather than the default 2000 pixels, while also somewhat reducing the default 75% edge darkening slider. This results in a less "extreme" effe...

32 bit (Photoshop)

I have traditionally used Nikon's proprietary software for it's raw files, an aftermarket image sharpening program, then used PWP on the resulting 16 bit/channel file in an attempt to get the best quality image. However, I recently read some comments from a photographer who praised the benefits of o...

Re: PWP 8 Progress Update

Didn't know if we are supposed to be using the new PWP 8 Beta thread yet for a PWP 8 question or if that is reserved for when the Beta version comes out, so thought I would ask on this thread. It appears that Soft Light and Hard Light (as well as Absolute Difference and a couple others) are no longe...

Re: Watercolour question

Thanks Jonathan, I sort of figured that the banding was part of the WC result. Just thought I would ask anyway. Tried all the masking tools and found them needing as much work in the cleanup as the cloning itself. So many different tones/hues that make masking difficult to get all the areas. I'll ju...
