  1. No, haven't tried that. Thanks for the recommendation 😊 Will give it a try and let you know how it went. Should have brought and used my hand steamer... 🤦‍♀️
  2. Hey Damien, while editing this image I noticed that I'm bothered by the wrinkles in the dress. What would be the best way to go about getting these wrinkles out? I tried cloning and the spot healing brush, but the result has not really been satisfactory to say the least. I think I need expert advice here 🙂
  3. Damien, you´re the best! It worked!!! I installed the DisplayProfile App, made my own hideous "toggle" Profile, then recalibrated one more time, and it worked! 🙂 Thank you again so much!
  4. OK! Thank you! I´ll try and let you know if/how it worked!
  5. Also I just realized that my profiles aren´t saved as ".icc", they´re saved as ".icm". Could this be part of the problem in any way?!
  6. Just installed the app, thank you! The TOGGLE.icc link doens´t work. Would you mind to reactivate it for me? Thank you!!
  7. I have recalibrated already about 10 times. Switched from native white point to to D65 and back again, tried the big and the small number of fields, and changed the names of the files where the profile gets saved in. One time the icon turned grey for a couple of minutes, but then it showed red again, saying I should calibrate my screen. 🥴 It's really odd. I'm running the newest Windows version, and have installed and re-installed the xRite software twice. Just to make sure. I have plugged in the calibrator in different USB ports. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Usually I save the profile, it makes that little confirmation sound, and everything is fine. 🤷‍♀️
  8. Hey Damien, I have been trying to calibrate my new Acer Monitor with my XRite i1 Display. The monitor is connected to my laptop. I have calibrated a BenQ SW2700 before with this combination (this laptop and this i1Display) with no problems. This time though the XRite software seems to not wanting to save or recognize the calibration. I was able to save the settings that resulted from the calibration under a "User Profile" in the monitor´s menu, so the calibration result is there when I turn the laptop/monitor on, but the Xrite software keeps telling me that I have never calibrated this monitor and that I should do so (and the task bar icon shows red instead of green). So - how do I get the software to acknowledge that I did have calibrated the montor already, and to turn this tray icon from red to green? Or should I even bother (settings are saved in the monitor´s custom user profile, and I could set a reminder to recalibrate elsewhere)?
  9. Worked like a charm. Thanks so much again!
  10. Thank you so much! I'll give it a try! ?
  11. Good morning, Damien! I'm wondering what method you would suggest to dry Mr. L's pants?

    Just thought about this again. Even though she is not a client and more like a friend, I will still have to break the bad news to her, have a slightly uncomfortable conversation on the topic, and on top she will be disappointed and probably even a little sad that she will not get this image delivered. I could have spared both of us from this pain by checking/culling first and throwing everything out that's not good enough. So, yes, thanks again for this great reminder!

    She's not a client, she's my Au Pair. She knows I was practicing and experimenting during that shoot (and failing here and there obviously). The other 2 seniors I photographed during this Parachute/Senior session received a soft proof gallery with images I doublechecked before sending out, and where I was 100% sure that I was in the safe zone. ? I've read this article of yours before, very good point. Makes total sense, and is a very important reminder.

    Ok! Thank you for! Painful lesson on always continuously double checking shutter speed/settings while shooting...

    I'm wondering if I should throw this one out? She loves it, but I'm not sure if the focus is good enough to not be embarassed when she posts it on social media ? I'd love to know what you think.
