  1. 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):
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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

  7. I ended up with an enormous amount of keywords after using the Alamy bridge Lightroom plugin (my own fault, as I stupidly transferred all keywords from Alamy back to Lightroom), and I've spent many hours deleting unnecessary keywords from my Lightroom library. As I had to go through the keywords to find the ones I wanted to delete, using the minus button would have required a lot of scrolling up and down.
  8. After following this thread, I decided to give Photo Mechanic another try. I'm sure it's every bit as good as people say, when it comes to functionality; the interface, though, is a little clunky and somewhat reminiscent of Visual Basic, which is a shame.
  9. This is a good idea. Has anyone here asked Alamy if they would consider this?
  10. No, just highlight the individual keywords holding control and then click the minus button. I'm not quite sure I follow you here. If you have a long list of keywords and you want to delete keywords further down the list, you have to first scroll down to highlight the keywords, and when you do that, i.e. scroll down, the top section of the keyword list – where the minus button is located – disappears from view, so you have to then scroll back up to the top of the list in order to be able to click the minus button.
  11. Not entirely sure what you mean by this but you can delete more than one keyword - in fact you can delete all if you want. Highlight the ones to delete then click the minus symbol in the top bar. You're right! I wasn't aware that it worked with the minus button, I always used the Delete option in the contextual menu, which for some reason only deletes the last of the selected keywords. In any case, if you have a long list of keywords and you want to delete some further down the list, you'd then have to scroll back and forth between the minus button and the keywords in question
  12. Unfortunately, while Capture One is good for many other things, it's terrible when it comes to cataloguing and searching.
  13. I use Lightroom too, and I am happy with it in this regard, except for a few quirks, such as not being able to delete multiple keywords at the same time.
  14. I assume the same rules apply to moving images. There's quite a lot of digitized orphaned small gauge film footage on archive.org – though, of course, not for sale. One of the libraries there, which is something of a goldmine if you're interested in stuff like this, is IICADOM – The International Institute for the Conservation, Archiving and Distribution of Other People's Memories.
  15. One of three 0.63 cent (after deduction) sales today. Koenji, Tokyo. (The other two from Tokyo as well.)
  16. From one of the people who left SS because of the censorship issue (Twitter thread):
  17. I just found a couple of my photos credit to Mauritius Images/Alamy/me, here: https://www.eurowings.com/de/horizons/familien-urlaub/kopenhagen-kinder.html Carbon Date estimates that the page was published on October 18; the photos haven't been invoiced yet though. I assume it takes longer for distributor sales. I tried searching for the photos on IM too without any luck.
