Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

DisplayCal has been mentioned and I downloaded and installed it to see how it would work with my ColorMunki Photo. After installing the Argyl CMS the software ran, but didn't recognise my ColorMunki...

Re: Car modifications - is it or isn't it?

The warning notices on motorways are pretty much discredited and ignored, because they're rarely updated as soon as the need for a warning has long gone. There may be fog on a motorway and a warning...

What, traffic cameras? Perhaps have microphones on them?

So who are the 'they' who are going to enforce it, then? *shrug

Re: When

Looks like the harbour's carved out of the solid rock. Does it get much use, considering all that effort?

Re: Wet day in Llanelli

That looks much better. I don't know why the maker of the plate made the writing offset in the first place. It just looks weird.

I think that the plate should be hung with the grass level, ignoring the writing!

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

I also have a Colormunki, but have never been able to calibrate a printer satisfactorily, in spite of refining the calibration with sample prints. It's something I need to get to the bottom of.

Re: Olympus Air A01

It's easy enough to increase the saturation or vividness using Photoshop, Faststone or Rawtherapee, but as I've been looking at imagemagick recently:

I tried 'Go Advanced' three times in order to include an image in a post, every time I received a page not working message and also lost the message I'd already typed out!

Re: What planet is this???

The last one is stunning and I'm sure it would win competitions, though I'd be inclined to trim a bit off the bottom to reduce the 'squareness'.

No, I don't think so. He wanted to keep it on a keyring and they were in a sturdy metal case that looked like the loop wouldn't break.

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...

Try pumping up the 'vibrance' in the first image.
