  1. DxO Optics Pro is a very advanced raw converter (i.e. a program for converting raw images). Lightroom has a very advanced raw converter and functions as a very good image database (essential when you start getting a lot of images to look after) as well as a number of other things such integration with Google Maps and fairly advanced printing. It would not be possible to use just DxO Optics Pro to manage a large image collection - a database (also called a DAM) is essential. Photoshop is a pixel image editor, far superior to any other pixel image editor on the planet. It used to be absolutely essential to do pixel editing and most people used Photoshop or Photoshop Elements but that is no longer the case and many photographers are now using an advanced raw converter alone. For me, life would not be worth living without Photoshop but I can understand how photographers can function without it. Ha ha. Great. Thanks for that info. I reckon I'll be o.k with DX0 for 5 minutes. Will get Photoshop when necessary. Vickie.
  2. By the way, All, I recently found a British based web company - Photo4me - which turns your photos into canvases and sells them. I saw Arterra and Joseph Clemson on there... Vickie..
  3. Hi John. I mean Santa. The above is exactly what I have bought. Thanks. I found a code for free DX0 version 9. Am now using it. Thanks a lot for suggesting it. Not asking you how to use it, but in your opinion, is it very inferior to Lightroom or Photoshop? It's fine for me at the moment, and I haven't made use of all the modules available yet.... Cheers. Vickie.
  4. What exactly are you looking for? In what way should it enhance a photograph? You know, one of those magic filters that eliminates camera shake, motion blur, and noise by increasing light levels A neutral undensity filter Mwah mwah. On a more serious note, you're fortunate to have an Sony RX100 which has an excellent night scene mode. Not a filter as such, but a special way of combining multiple frames taken in low light to reduce the effects of noise and camera shake. There's a forum thread on it here. Yeah I saw that thread. Appreciate your help. I am going to do a lot of practice with the 3 night modes on my camera. Thanks, Vickie.
  5. Huh? Newbie Twat me was asking the forum 'which lens should I get' - for my un-interchangable lens camera.... So I'm getting some filters instead now. I wanted my camera to zoom in further, without losing the quality. Am otherwise very happy with the rx100. I had accidentally bought a Nex 6 without the right (kit) lens first. Rather liked it though. Will probably try to get one for my next camera. I am not worried about having a small budget or buying second hand. My £200.00 second hand rx100 is good enough for (the strict) Alamy. I agree it's the skills of the photographer that matter more. Though there must be a good few things expensive equiptment can enable you to do. We'll have to make some money from photography! There are so many things I haven't got around to photgraphing yet. Like you say, you could spend months in just your own area. I also have no interest in photographing things that don't interest me. For people that like it, it's probably a never ending process, so definitely should be enjoyable. I haven't done much research on architecture yet. Just like the look of buildings and am judging each scene individually. You like my goat! I adore the pre-raphaelites firstly. Dante Gabrielle Rossetti is my all time favourite. Also love Klimt, Munch, Mcintosh, etc, etc. I can sit looking at paintings for hours. Great to hear your opinions. Vickie.

  7. What exactly are you looking for? In what way should it enhance a photograp Possibly the same way a polarising one does. Colours, contrast, saturation! Actually mostly brightness.
  8. While (I'm) on the subject of filters - Have been browsing all different types of uses, but haven't seen and would like one that enhances night photgraphy. Anyone know of one? Thank you, Vickie.
  9. Appreciate your advice. Good to know the above could 'replace' a lens, also. Cheers.
  10. Actually, I can't find any single thread filters for sale....!
  11. I think you might be right. I have just bought lovely cheap Hoya ones. Not double thread. I'll just change them when I want a different one. Thanks or your help.
  12. Hi Allan, This is starting to make sense! But the shop I'm buying from asked me if I need a single or double thread... Vickie. I have never been asked that when buying filters. Think someone may be having a larf. Allan Some confusion somewhere. I know I know nothing! Thanks a lot All. Vickie.
  13. Hi Allan, This is starting to make sense! But the shop I'm buying from asked me if I need a single or double thread... Vickie.
  14. That does help, thanks. I know I need a 49mm size filter. I want to know if it should be single or double thread. I might be confused. Don't really wanna know the ins and outs of screw designs! Vickie.
  15. Hi all, I am getting a Polarising and a Close up filter for my rx100 i. i can see they will screw in to my filter adapter, but I don't understand the Threaded Type business. Could anyone please tell me how it pertains to rx100 i and/or screw in filters? Been looking high and low for this info... Thnks, Vickie.
  16. Absolutely. I meant 'best' in terms of technical quality (still learning...). I wouldn't submit rubbish content photos though, cause no-one would buy them... Wouldn't they? Oh damn it, I may as well delete this one then. Thanks for the tip Naughygoat. Ha ha. You're welcome. I am a helpful NewBeeee
  17. If a special effects filter/process is used though that intentionally puts what looks like dust and grain on an image, I wonder at which point Alamy will see it as an effect, or will see it as an imperfection? After all, effects like that are supposed to look realistic, so it may just look like imperfections that shouldn't be there. I suppose it depends how obvious it is that it's supposed to be some sort of effect. Geoff. Yeah, I read that here before. Agree with you that Alamy could keep its contributors more informed. Don't know why everything needs to be a guessing game!
