Photo Critique!

So, here we go again, exploring the boundaries of excellence, speeding through the intersection of bad and good (paying no attention to those stop signs), and having a fun time looking at each other's photos and making comments and suggestions! You won't want to miss the excitement!

    Picasa is good for what it is, but it's just very slow (compared to Aftershot) and limited in capabilities. Aftershot doesn't replace GIMP, though, for really digging into editing. I wasn't crazy about the price, but it really was worth it for me.

    Adam, that was me!! Thanks for sharing this great tid bit! I have tried free versions of other programs (Lightroom?), but wasn't thrilled with the price tag to get the features I felt I already had with GIMP & Picasa. I will definitely try out Aftershot's trial to find out what I think!! Thanks again!

    I heard that someone was interested in Linux photo tools at this event, so I thought I'd post since I use Linux exclusively at home.

    There are a few options - free RAW processing tools like ufraw (one image at a time) or Raw Therapee (more like Lightroom in that you can organize and process) work, but they're fairly limited and buggy.

    I ended up purchasing Corel's Aftershot Pro (formerly Bibble), as it's very fast and feature-complete. I'm reasonably happy with it. Looks like it's $60 right now, and they do have a trial.

    Great fun! I didn't realize we were going on safari or I would have dressed more appropriately . . .

    I'll be showing the images on a 42" flat screen TV

    October 23, 2012

  • Edward C.

    Resolution for the images should be original camera files at full resolution and finished jpeg files at 1920 pixels by 1280

    I only shoot film and print, so does that leave me out of this critique?

    October 17, 2012

    • Edward C.

      Not at all, Rock! Just bring up to three prints preferably 16x20 or larger.

    What file resolution do you want? 72? 300?

    Bring your three choice images, both the original camera file (RAW or jpeg) and the edited version (jpeg) for this event. A USB jump drive (flash drive) is best for transporting the images.

    How do you view the images? Does one have to print or screen show?
