Talking Another Newbie

Hi All - I'm David, a retired scientist from Cheshire UK. I've been an amateur photographer for many years and I also enjoy image editing, particularly with The Gimp. Other processing interests are HDR, smoothing and sharpening algorithms, and monchrome.

Cheers

David

Re: Another Newbie

Thanks for the welcome guys! I do use theGimp a great deal so let me know if there are specific points. I'll probably post something shortly about a plug-in called G'MIC, but I need to search through to see what's already posted.

Cheers

David

Re: Another Newbie

Hi Boofers - I converted a Fuji FinePix 6900 to take IR images by removing the IR filter from the sensor. This worked quite well, but I have difficulty in finding time to do more.

Cheers

David

Re: Another Newbie

First post on the site, found it by searching for info about Raynox close up lenses. Been an amateur photographer for many years with mainly Minolta gear, recently went digital with a Fuji 602, now using a Panasonic FZ50, a brilliant camera if I may say so. I use Paint shop pro 7 for tidying up my work, must admit I haven't mastered it by a long shot, Layers has me completely lost. Must mention I am English born, actually a yellow belly, wonder how many are familiar with saying? Cheer's
