Sweet! Looks like you are on the right track now.
guys, would the extension tubes help in a situation like this?
Ill get some sample pics with all scenarios tomorrow.
I love the 100mm lens. The only issue that I see with me using it is that it might be too much of a macro for what I need it for. A 60mm me do better for me? Since I take top down photos the tripod has to be really high to get the complete coral in the picture. the 100mm is very intense.....
no, youre fine, get a topdown box from melevsreef.com.
Then use one of your regular lenses in the top down box if the macro is too much.
Trust me, you will get the hang of its strengths and weaknesses.
Great tutorial - What's the main difference between Unsharp Mask and Sharpen in PS?
ill have to get back with you on that one, lol.
I just got my copy of CS 4 for my Mac, so ill be knee deep in it for a few nights.
No rush Jr lol. From my experience, Unsharpen seems to make the images more "grained" for some reason. Maybe I'm typing in the wrong #s.
I assume I just need a magnification "filter" to put on the lens yes?
junior, you can keep a copy of cs4 on my laptop. ya know, just for safekeeping. i won't use it, promise
man, i have a hard enough time with cs2, not ready for all the new stuff is cs3, let alone cs4
no, you actually have to get closer with one of those...oddly enough.
Its more of post production, and brighter lighting, and, and, and.
I havent done it in a while.
worse case, i bring by my 150mm macro.
so far the flow of things is just a whole lot better.
I only had elements on my MAC so i finally got a full blown CS version for it.
I have elements 5 I believe and a Nikon D40X. Every time I try to open a raw image file all I see is a bunch of programmers gibberish where the picture should be. I don't even see the adjustment controls. what the heck is going on here. Please help me, I'm running out of hair to pull out.
try uninstalling and reinstalling the software, and then go to adobes website and download the latest version of camera raw.
try that, and let me know.
I'll give it a try when I get home.
Any tutorial with Photoshop cs2? I tried opening a .NEF with photoshop but would not let me...
I have installed Camera Raw Plugin but still will not open. I even tried the DNG Converter but it wont even convert my .NEF to .DNG
CS2 will not open RAW files from current DSLR's, if it did, you wouldn't buy a new version.
So CS3or CS4? I might as well as get Photoshop Elements, it's cheaper.
Yup, Elements, or Lightroom 2.0
