  1. Yesterday
  2. I would like to learn the method and make the subject darker. Thanks!
  3. Last week
  4. Cheers mate.. going by your guide "If the photo is approximately 3×5, scan it at 720ppi"... they are approx 3.5x3.5 in.... Keep at 720ppi

  6. Hi Damien, I have some old photos I'd like to scan - what DPI should I be looking at?
  7. Well I'll be damned, the original link doesn't work any more. Can you find it again?
  8. I found some that may work except your going to call me on focus.
  9. I have a Mac desktop running MacOS High Sierra and Lightroom CC. It is over 4 years old, and has 32 GBGB of RAM. Its hard drive has 3.12TBGB free out of 2.5 TBGB. The last time I shut down was more than a week ago, because I'm an idiot. I have never run a cleanup program.
  10. Hi @Bernadette, it could be a number of things. First, could you do this for me? https://www.damiensymonds.net/thread1.html
  11. Lightroom is covering some of my images with weird colours. Do you know why this is happening? Thanks
  12. I think I’ll convert the original image into black and white and see.

    Double chin

    I'm sure that is as best as it will get. Thanks Damien!
  14. Gosh, tough one. How does this look? https://max.mailbigfile.com/e847ce54e8afe9be7580fb35eb1ba0d4/listFiles.php
  15. Hi! I know this isn't the best picture with the best quality, but I need help reducing the double chin. I've tried your handy man method but for some reason I can't get it to where I'm happy with it. Could you please Damien give it a go? Thanks!
  16. The method is different for every photo. This is really rubbish quality because I'm working with a low quality web file, but do you think it has potential?
  17. We can make a silhouette from your photo, for sure. But it won't look the same as that one.
  18. I'm about to send off for a test print. I know it won't be the best but just to see if it is even at all good enough... Basically uploading as large as possible and have sharpened at this size. Hesitant to say the least...
  19. I have emailed them and the response was as follows. " Alan K Martin (Order a Print) Dec 1, 09:46 IST Hello Aymar, Thank you for using our service and reaching out to us! The system does 3 things: First, it shows the sizes that are the closest to the photo ratio. Second, it presents the sizes that can be printed using photo quality. Third, it presents only the sizes that are available in your customer's country. The system will always prefer to offer sizes that have an aspect ratio that is the closest possible to the aspect ratio of the original image in order to prevent image data loss. In order to get the best results and to enable printing of most products/sizes, the artwork should be uploaded in the size of 4000 px or higher in sRGB format, 300 dpi or more, so we can print as close as possible to what the customer sees on their screen, using JPG or PNG file type. Unfortunately, we cannot send free samples, but we offer our clients a sample request discount that takes 20% off from the total price from the first order. You should see the discount in the cart before checkout. (If you are logged in as the site owner) We are using the most advanced printing equipment and materials to achieve great print qualities. The paper stock depends on your customer location as we ship from local factories, but in most cases, we use Art Poly canvas, Kodak ENDURA professional photo paper with a fine grain pebble texture and Glossy “F” Kodak ENDURA professional photo paper with a glossy finish and many other great materials. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to contact me. With best regards, Alan K Martin Order a Print - Support Team"
