Me too

I had a similar problem. I printed a 48-bit .tif file on 11-by-17 inch paper. The image itself was set up to occupy half the page. The print came out as a stack of six bands, each one with wildly different colors, except the middle band was accurate and the last band was black and white. As best as ...

What's embarrassing is that I tried to click on the message box that Winfriend posted.

Histogram in transformations -- adapt to masks

I liked the innovation (PWP7?) that when applying a mask in a transformation that displays a histogram, it becomes a histogram for the masked area only. I hope it will carry into PWP8.

Re: Mask and operation time issue

You can make up to four masks without a transformation using Transformation/Masks Still confused. A mask made this way still seems to be attached to one of the images, the one that was highlighted when clicking on Transformation/Mask. Then if I go work on another image, perhaps in another column of...

Curses on videos. Text is so much easier to study an important paragraph, zip through a paragraph not relevant to me now, etc.

Mask and operation time issue

Apparently, we cannot make a mask until we begin a transformation. One consequence is that every applied mask operation entails waiting for the transformation to recalculate, too. For example, I open Equalize and begin a mask by brightness curve. Every time I add or move a point on the brightness cu...

Re: Blank/black image preview--new monitor

For what it may be worth, below are the settings I use for a NEC PA series monitor. The monitor stores its calibrations in an internal lookup table rather than in the graphics card of the computer, so if the BenQ does the same, the settings are worth a try. I calibrate the monitor to Adobe RGB color...

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

"what your aim is - increase contrast, maybe??" No aim; the recipe I gave looks different to me than adding contrast (whether by combining an image with itself through Soft Light or by other means). It is a special effect, different from the overt watercolor effect, each helpful in particu...

In praise of the Watercolor transform for more than watercolor effect

The Watercolor transform can add drama without turning the photo into a watercolor painting.
