Virus scare.

A friend phoned to say that he'd bought a USB stick off Ebay (!), and that it had some files on it and that he couldn't format it to remove them. He'd plugged it into his 3 Windows machines - 2 Win7...

Re: Olympus Air A01

It seems to me that there's more to worry about with the image than colour balance and contrast. It seem very soft to me. Maybe as your set-up seems to be very light, that it's camera shake.

I always resize images to 1024 pixels for the longest dimension.

The quickest way is to use an 'imagemagick' command on a command line eg.:

Re: Lowepro 450 AW

I had a Lowepro shoulder bag for an E500. I was walking in the Cairngorms with it in rain. I thought 'No problem, I'll use the AW cover feature!'. When I got back to camp, the case had an inch of...

Re: Tay Rail Bridge

I travelled over the bridge in 1944. As we went over my Mum said "Look James, a submarine!". I didn't know what a submarine was supposed to look like, and all I saw was glass factory roofs on the...

Re: An expensive “Hobby”
