Thanks for the manual info, worth knowing


Arguing with an idiot is like teaching a pig to sing. It's a waste of your time, and it only annoys the pig!

Zitat von signman
You just can't believe the way society is going, read this article and wonder....



That's not society Signman, that's some unelected knobhead in the council throwing his puny weight about in the form of hired thugs.
"Stuart Terry, coastal works manager at Poole council, said the beach was council land and it was 'standard industry practice' to seek permission before taking pictures."

Most towns and cities consist of council owned land, could they really handle the daily millions of professional requests for permission to shoot?
And the rest of us aren't in "That" industry so how do they tell us apart?
This quote says it all...."No bylaw exists prohibiting the taking of photographs on the beach."

As this was in a newspaper it is probably all fiction anyway.

Signman,
I am trying to turn a black and white wedding photo into a colour print.
I have PSP Photo X2 and can't find any way of doing it. Am I missing something or do I need other software?
Your guidance would be appreciated.
VM

VM, you can't turn a b/w photo into colour, you can turn colour into b/w.
The only way to do it is to hand colour it.

Volty, this is a sample of what you can do in hand colouring, photo courtesy of Phil.

You've got to be kidding.
I thought you were just coverting greyscale to approxmate colours at the click of button.
I've gone off the idea now but I will give it a try. I suppose the whole photo doesn't have to be in colour and the white dress is almost half the area anyway, and the grooms suit is about a third, there's a tree and a car roof, it might not be too difficult after all.

Thanks Signman.
VM

SB, and VM it's easy just like painting in numbers depending on what photo software you have I will post a little tutorial, if you so wish.

Thanks Signman,

I looked it up on Amazon. It's 3rd party sellers only and is priced from £50 upto £190.
The X3 version is available from Amazon at £19 so I might get that as most things will be in both books anyway.

I've tried replacing greys with colour but no matter how fine I fix the shade to be replaced all I get is an overall colour change..

VM, are you tinting the whole photograph, instead of colourising .
Hang fire I'll post a few instructions.
