  1. Sadly I can't see the first link. Can you check that you pasted it correctly?
  2. You assume correctly. But if you're shooting plenty loose, and there's no chance of losing anything important, you can still use it.
  3. Sorry, I haven't kept files back this far.
  4. Hi @Sara dubois, I've moved your question into Brian's area, because he's much more wise about these matters.
  5. Hi @georgedave, You're right, monitors are usually at fault. Which Spyder did you get? Yes, definitely. You want your screen to match your dark prints, so that you'll KNOW how dark they are, and won't edit them so dark again. I hope this makes sense. Can you elaborate on this? Where does your gamma show as 2.5?
  6. Yes. There's some discussion about this at the end of the Bridge Class.
  7. As soon as you've finished the Bridge Class, the Raw Class is the next one to take.
  8. Those days are gone. From now on, you do all your editing by yourself, with my guidance.
  9. This is definitely not true, I'm pleased to say. Your photos are great. Edit them properly, then give the full-resolution jpeg files to the client, and they'll be able to print them as big as a factory wall if they like.

  11. That's because you sent them those stupid tiny jpeg files!
  12. You did it! And I'm very pleased to say the focus is PERFECT ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ If all your photos are like this, you're a champion. Nothing to worry about.
  13. DNG is a raw file. You have to open it in Camera Raw first, exactly the same as you did with the last raw file.
  14. Leave it on that. Well, go and find them now.
  15. Now, we need to get back to your actual question. Have you found the raw files of your group shoot?
  16. You achieved it! Do you feel proud?
  17. PLEASE just do it, so I know you know how.
  18. And make sure you click here to change from Adobe RGB to sRGB the way it should be.
  19. Finally! A raw file! Go ahead and increase the Exposure slider so it's not so darn dark, then do the noise removal. Then press "Open" to bring the photo into Photoshop, THEN you can take the 100% crop to show us.
