Import the image to Instagram Apply the "Lark" filter Export the resulting image Sorry, but I couldn't resist. I'm not real familiar with the Lark filter in Instagram nor am I familiar with the labels Gimp puts on certain controls, but based on the images above, here are the differences that I see between the first image (which looks much better to my ...

Google NIK plugin is free now. It comes with an output sharpen and allows you to select the viewing distance of your print as well as different settings in regards to print resolution, etc. NIK was $150 but Google now offers it for free. After installing it the options will be located in the filters menu. Pretty handy.

Removing an object is not really “magical” work. Your goal is basically to cover up the information you don’t want in an image with information you do want. Here are some core techniques to remove objects from image. Clone Stamp and Pattern Stamp Tool: This tool allows you paint into your image with your mouse or stylus. Eraser and Brush Tools: Paint flat ...

My two cents: You are new in photography and you are not very good in painting... Do not push yourself too much, but make a real effort to learn. 1) The photo. Here is a greeeeeeat photoshooot of a coca-cola pinup style session. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBUsA-AoRBg If your photo is good, the result is good... so you need to learn photography, ...

Unless you just mean the overall yellow/brown tone, no, you can't do this by adding a filter. You need three things: a model, setup, and lighting. "A model" might seem obvious, but: posing like this isn't innate. It takes skill and practice. You probably need to hire a professional model — or else someone you work well with and a lot of patience. By setup,...

When you turn down the highlights and turn up the shadows, a glow effect appears at the boundary of these two areas. What causes this? I don't mean to be flippant, but turning down the highlights and turning up the shadows causes it. I think what you really want to know is why doing that causes a "glow." I haven't looked into it beyond messing around with ...

higher bit depth of raw files makes the files less susceptible to posterization during editing information from shadows and highlights can be retrieved more easily in raw files in some raw editors, the edits are not done to the actual data, but are included as recipes. So if you make the image super bright, save, open and make it dark again, you don't lose ...

JPEG compression quality is not the main limiting factor for the images coming out of camera. Also, it could well be possible to store sparse data to JPEG files - i.e. saving absent channel values as 0 - and make it comparable to RAW file size or less than that. Following aspects are the reason for using RAW files: the image which camera gets from the ...

There is a lot more information in a raw file than in a processed jpeg file (or an 8-bit PNG or TIFF). When converted to jpeg many things are "baked in": White balance, black point, white point, gamma correction, other properties of the response curve from dark to light values of each pixel, etc. Once that information is gone, it can't be recovered. ...

It is about the accumulation of errors. With a higher bit-depth, RAW files can handle more processing before you start seeing banding and quantization artifacts. You will eventually see those with RAW files that are manipulated too just later. So the primary advantage indeed comes from bit-depth. Another common concern is compression artifacts. When you ...
