  1. If you can provide a crop of the shirt that doesn't show the subject's face then he won't be identifiable, hence there is no need to worry about a model release.
  2. Because you shot in RAW, when you edit the images, you can give them the sRGB colour space.
  3. Yes, it's possible in Elements (including 14), but Damien doesn't have any tutorials on it. You should be able to find quite a few tutorials via Google.
  4. All the tutorials are here: http://www.damiensymonds.net/tutorials.html
  5. You can find the "multiplicity" tutorial here: http://www.damiensymonds.net/2010/05/what-do-you-do-for-kicks-on-weekend-i.html
  6. Don't mind him, he is just not a fan of the film look and prefers clean edits. Damien also hasn't used the Mastin presets. If they can't easily be used later (after global adjustments) then I'd say they don't really fit with Damien's recommended workflow, but experiment a little and see.
  7. For any guests who would like an overview of how to sign up as a member, see below: 1. Click the blue Sign Up button at the top 2. A Sign Up form will appear for you to complete. See below for an example of how to fill it out. (If you click or tap on the below image, it will enlarge on your screen so you can see it more easily). Tips here are: Your display name can be whatever you like (if it's not already taken). It doesn't have to be your actual name, but choose carefully because you can't change it without help from an administrator. Type your email address carefully as you only enter it on the form once. Fields with a red star are mandatory. There is quiz question you need to answer to prove you are a real person and not a spambot. The answer is Photoshop You need to accept the terms of use and privacy policy. Click on Create My Account and you are now a member. You should receive a confirmation email in your inbox. If the process didn't work: Check that you completed all of the mandatory fields (that have a red star) Check that you ticked the box to accept the terms of use and privacy policy Make sure you got the quiz question right. The answer is in bold above. You might have entered your email address incorrectly - if so, start the process again.
  8. Hi Bek, I just tried to upload a 7.2MB jpg file and it worked ok. Is it one of the accepted file types (gif, jpeg, jpg, jpe, png)? Can you please post a screen shot of the error message you are getting?
  9. If you taper a shirt, you take out some of the bulk and make it fit more firmly.
  10. I observe this on my laptop too, but to my eye it's a brightness shift. If it really is a brightness issue, there could be a solution to your problem here: http://superuser.com/questions/471073/how-to-prevent-laptop-screen-brightness-from-changing-when-un-plugging-battery-p The process is to enable Powershell commands, make a script (i.e. copy text into a notepad file), save the notepad file in your Windows folder and make a shortcut in your Startup folder. The script ensures that even if the power source changes, the brightness of the screen will not change. So sign in as an administrator and follow these steps: 1. Run Powershell (search your computer for "Powershell" and run the desktop app). Check your current Powershell policy setting by typing Get-ExecutionPolicy. It will probably return the result Restricted. 2. Change Powershell policy to Unrestricted by typing the command Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted (More info here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee176961.aspx). This will allow the script to run, otherwise it will be blocked. 3. Make a notepad file containing the script. It looks like you need to combine the two scripts on that superuser thread (copy the script text from user Jacopo Irace's answer, then DrNT007's answer). My notepad file ended up looking like this: 4. Save this file into your Windows folder. Give it a file name with no spaces in it and make the extension of this file ".ps1" Make a shortcut to this file in your Startup folder. If you try it and this doesn't fix your problem, reset your Powershell policy: go back into your Powershell desktop app and change your settings back to Restricted by using the command Set-ExecutionPolicy Restricted. And you can delete that script file if you want to.
  11. Mark sections as Read If you visit a section and see a solid star next to the section name, there are new posts & replies in that section. If you are not interested in that topic area, you can mark the section as read (without actually reading the posts) by clicking the star. It will then change to an outline of a star. The benefit of doing this is that it will clear those posts out of your Unread Content feed (accessible via the Unread Content link in the top right corner). If you want to mark everything in the whole site as Read, scroll down the bottom of your screen and click on Mark Site Read. This will clear everything out of your Unread Content feed in one go.
  12. There is a lengthy thread here on how to do various things on this site, however the top things to do are: 1. Make a shortcut icon on your phone or tablet 2. Set up automatic notifications so that you will be notified of replies on all of your posts 3. Follow whole topic areas you are interested in (eg Help With Editing) so you will receive emails about new content 4. Set up your member profile and add a profile photo if you want to 5. Come and say hello here! When you visit again, check on what's new via the Unread Content view (link in top right). Maybe even ask a question!...
  13. @Kim Rose, as Samantha said, you can add a home screen icon to your phone and this acts like an app for the site. Instructions on how to do that are here.
