Add a step in the action to rotate the image 90 degrees clockwise, then place the marquee in the top left, apply the fill, then rotate by 90 degrees anticlockwise.


JPEG file size is a meaningless measure, except as an optimization criterion for bandwith/diskspace considerations. Since JPEG is optimized to compress areas with little detail, while preserving fine detail, compression is dependent on the details in the image. There is no way you could produce a 20mb file from eg. a plain white image, no matter the ...


When it comes to color imaging of the night sky with a monochrome camera, the use of color filters is usually implied. There are two major sets of color filters that are commonly used with monochrome sensors: LRGB and narrow band. LRGB Imaging Standard color imaging, or "broadband" imaging, makes use of LRGB or Luminance + RGB filters. Monochrome sensors ...


If you want to do it the old fashioned way, you take a series of photos of the same thing with each one filtered for a different color. Say one shot filtered for red, one for green, and one for blue. Then you add the color to each gray scale image in post and then combine the three monochromatic images.


Try create a new layer and change the blending mode to multiply, then paint the colours you want on that layer. Notice it won't colour the black areas.


First, I can't emphasize enough that the look you are trying to achieve was not a Photoshop effect; it's the result of shooting a model in a tank (or pool or tub or what have you) of water to which something was added to make the water cloudy. Reproducing the look in post-processing is going to be a little on the tedious side, but this should get you ...


This isn't really an answer to your question as asked, but it isn't really just a comment either. The "simulate paper color" option probably isn't going to do nearly what you want. It's a bit heavy-handed, to say the least, and while it can be occasionally useful for perceptual purposes when preparing an image, if you could manage to save it and print it to ...


It looks like this filter uses a high black level and adds a yellow cast. One way to see this is by starting with the instagram version and looking at what it takes to make it look "normal". Here is my normalized version of the instagram version: I used the darkest area as the black level, which was (.161, .125, 090) in the original. I then use a white ...


I don't know of any "easy" way to fix an image like this. I don't know of any way that could be done purely in Lightroom either, although you could do some tweaking with the shadows and highlights sliders before bringing it into Photoshop for the full correction. It is possible to fix it, however, using a combination of dodge/burn for selective shadow and ...


As the other answerers have pointed out, GIMP misses certain features that you can find in photoshop. But then you are not limited to using only GIMP. I use the following free of charge programs: dcraw ImageJ ImageMagick Hugin GIMP dcraw allows you to have full access to your raw files, you can e.g. work with the raw data before any demosaicing is done. ...
