  1. Well, it isn't only distributor sales to China that are affected – here's a $0.25 sale with a $0.15 deduction:
  2. No, I'm just trying to understand how this works, and why deselecting China doesn't prevent such sales, but opting out of distributor sales altogether does.
  3. So this means that deselecting China under Distribution will not prevent distributor sales to China, only sales through Chinese distributors?
  4. I got a clarification now. The part about "novel use" was a mistake (on the side of support), apparently you need to opt out of distributor sales to avoid these sales. Strange, though, that opting out of sales to China isn't enough.
  5. I received a reply from support; they say that to avoid these sales, you need to opt out of "novel use" (in April). Where do you see if a sale is "novel use" (I looked at the sales report and the sales history, but it doesn't say "novel use" anywhere), and are "novel use" all novel use prices this low?
  6. Same here. Three images to China, $0.15 (i.e. $0.04) each. And you cannot opt out of this?
  7. In the screenshot above, I only used the slider to exemplify the brightness of the Photography (P3-D65) preset with Maximum Luminance set to 50 – brightness isn't recorded in screenshots, and this seemed like the easiest way of showing how bright 50 appears.
  8. Is that with a similar screen? A custom preset based on Photography (P3-D65) but with Maximum Luminance set to 50, I get more or less the same brightness as with this preset and slider setting:
  9. I'm aware of the default of 160, what I mean is that it doesn't seem to be possible to set the brightness at a lower value than 50. If you set it at, say, 40, it will revert to 50. Here's an example. If I save the above preset, and then make a new custom preset on the basis of the above, Maximum Luminance has reverted to 50: I find that 50 is too bright to work with for a longer time.
  10. When customizing the Photography (P3-D65) preset, it would have been useful if there was a way of retaining the brightness slider or at least setting the Maximum Luminance below 50, which I find is much too bright to work with.
  11. Thanks for the comment, Mark. I'll wait until it's been confirmed that Calibrite's ColorChecker has been updated to work with Liquid Retina XDR displays.
  12. Thanks for your reply. I've watched an earlier video by the same guy – but not the one you suggested. I'll have a look at that right away. It's not for any specific purpose other than to make sure I'm looking at the actual colours of my photos when editing so that I have a reasonable idea of what they'll look like elsewhere.
  13. Any opinions on display calibration for a new MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021)? I was thinking of something like a Calibrite ColorChecker Display Plus. How much difference would it make, and would it be worth it in terms of colour accuracy?
  14. I wonder if anyone here can help answer a question I've had for a while and now finally am getting around to asking. Some photos have a smooth, photorealism-like quality – a little like this painting by Don Eddy, "Untitled (4 VWs)" (1971): (Source) Here are a few examples – I just came across these; I'm not particularly interested in cars, but noticed this particular quality/effect again – all from Lienhard Racing Photography on Twitter (if it isn't OK to embed photos from Twitter here, please someone let me know and I'll remove them and just leave the links):
  15. An adjustment mask is just a mask contained in layer, this feature should be in the Express version too. A variant is an instance of an image; "the primary variant" would be the main instance of an image. So if you have multiple variants (instances/virtual copies) of an image, you can copy the settings/adjustments from one and apply it to another.
  16. The adjustment mask issue is discussed in the Capture One forum. Quite a few users seem to be affected by it and Capture One support says that there's no workaround that they know of. Regarding destructive/nondestructive editing, what I meant was that Capture One and Lightroom, for instance, leave the image files untouched, and once you leave Capture One/Lightroom to continue working on an image in, say, Photoshop, you're working on an exported file (destructively) and can no longer go back and change previous adjustments in Capture One/Lightroom without then having to export the i
  17. I have regular backups, but the problem is that adjustment masks disappear after the program is closed, and I don't think they would be retained in the backups either. As for the keystone adjustments, I prefer editing nondestructively so that I can always go back and make further adjustments. So for now, I've returned to Lightroom.
  18. An update to this thread. I made the attempt to switch from Lightroom to Capture One, at least partly, after the update to Capture One 20. After spending 8 months now trying to use Capture One I've come to regard this as a mistake, and Capture One, the software and the company, as unreliable. The first major issue I ran into was the severe limitations of Capture One's keystone correction tool, and the fact that simultaneous vertical and horizontal keystone correction doesn't work (what should be 90° angles come out as anything but 90° angles). Though Capture One has con
