Re: Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

Affinity Photo has launched version 1.7.1. Something flashed by as I was working on an image so it seems to have happened automatically. The speed problem is much better and the Nik Collection now...

Re: Olympus 12-40 or Panasonic 12-35?

I am a huge fan of the 12-35mm, I bought it before the 12-40mm was launched. I have tried the latter and while undoubtably it is a very fine lens, I prefer the Panasonic. Light and very very good...

Re: The Farne Islands

I wear hearing aids as I would guess so do many on the forum. For registered wearers, you can get a Disabled Railcard for £20 which gives the holder and one accompanying passenger about 30%...

Re: Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

I'm a big fan of Affinity but have to say that since the 'upgrade' to version 1.7, certain tasks such as selection refinement run much more slowly than previously, difficult to be exact but I'd say...

Re: Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8

I can't help you but if there is one lens in my collection that I will never part with, it is the 12-35mm Panasonic, mine was bought before the 12-40mm was introduced by Olympus. I've tried the...

Re: Ralph Gibson: an exhibition of his work

I think I made my point rather poorly. There is a great deal of overly prescriptive direction given by experts who propound a methodology that suits them without considering other options. ...

Re: Ralph Gibson: an exhibition of his work

I still donít really understand the supposed advice from Dorothea Lange to Gibson regarding having a point of departure. Well I know what it means but she also said that if she knew in advance what...

Re: Printing

Just a quick referral back to my earlier post regarding Simlab. Yesterday at 16.38 I received immediate acknowledgement of my order. Twenty seven prints on five different paper sizes. At 17.28, I...

Re: Printing

Hi Walti

This month’s Black & White Photography Magazine covers 6 labs in case that’s the way you go. I use Simlab, about £1.50 inc. VAT for 18”x 12” print. This means that I can reprint edits...

Re: Recommended reading

I gave up Photoshop two years ago in favour of Affinity Photo and have never regretted the move. I’m about £200 ahead and saving £10 a month. The main thing however is that AP does everything I...

Re: Little black number with a red carnation...!

Henry, totally agree about RW. I was thinking about ‘Dopey Photographers Revue’ and several magazines. I’m now going to stand in the corner.

Re: Panasonic 100-400 Photo Show saga. Buyers warning.

While it's prudent in this day and age to be cautious, I can think of a shedload of good reasons why a lens repairer would want to operate from home. A few years ago, I ran for a train, the zip on...

Re: Street Photography by Nick Turpin

I watched the Turpin video and so wish that I hadn’t wasted my time. Where was the mood of the street? There we had a plain hoarding, the Tower and a guy recumbent looking at his smart phone. I...
