Re: ON1 effects software is free

Hi Elaine,
You can use it as stand-alone software too so you don't need PS or LR to use it :).

Enjoy your trip to Madeira. I'm sure the weather will be better than here! The flower show sounds like a great opportunity for some wonderful pics - I look forward to seeing them at one of the meetings :).

ON1 effects software is free

I can recommend this either as a plug-in for Photoshop or Lightroom or if you don't have either, you can use it as a stand-alone programme. Very quick and easy to turn images into Black and White etc.

Re: Bluebells at Arga Fen

Hi Elaine,
It would be good to catch either the early morning or later afternoon light. I think members might be keener at catching the good light in the later afternoon but I don't mind. Ian is up for the afternoon so shall we say 2:30pm?? Does that fit in with you?

Bluebells at Arga Fen

The village grapevine, plus Amanda recently visited Spouses Wood (next to Arga Fen), says that the bluebells are already out in Hill House Wood. Worried that they may not be at their best on 6th May, the committee have decided to bring the photoshoot forward to Saturday 22nd April. How does that sui...

Re: Oil and water

I like 1, 3 and 4. They remind me of the macro images taken through a raindrop https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/or ... c17311.jpg. Would love to have a practical session on either.

Re: The Slice Gallery Permanent Exhibition

And just to reiterate what Robert said - there is space at the far end of the wall next to his display for up to four more exhibits. A shame to leave this space empty. Hopefully one or more of our newer members might like to take up the challenge. I have a feeling that it was thought best to leave ...

Re: Chinese Whispers December 2017

Hi Trevor,
Yes, I've sent Joe an image (in fact I sent him two as I changed my mind so it's definitely the second image you should be using Joe).

Re: The Slice Gallery Permanent Exhibition

You should be able to see Robert's post and images now.
The forum doesn't display a user's first post in case it is spam. I have to go in and approve it - which I've now done. I assume that is why the images didn't appear on the email - just in case they were something untoward.

Hi Trevor, I may be going bonkers but I have the visit to Ely in September and the review of those images in October along with other Architecture images. October has the London NIghtshoot trip but we plan to review these images in Feb along with other night/moonlight images so that members that did...

Re: Chinese Whispers December 2017

As the print size file that Trevor requires will be very large (in memory size), rather than send through email, it's a good idea to use a file sharing link. I have added one to our Dropbox account which you can use. Just upload your file using this link https://www.dropbox.com/request/7I0jwQRO22wlZ...

Re: December meeting

Hi folks, I've put the 2016 Retrospective Images on the website http://colchestercreativeshots.net/videos.html so those that weren't at the meeting can see them and we have a permanent record.

Re: Ideas for 2017/18 meetings

My suggestion for a photoshoot is Maldon/Heybridge/Blackwater barges.
I'm still thinking about subjects for themes.
