Mike: Every month I am amazed by the work you do with DXO Optics. After this month's image I decided to try it myself. I just downloaded the trial version of DXO Optics 10, so I can play with it for a month. I like the trial arrangement before making a $200 commitment.   Posted: 11/24/2014 11:09:10

Hey everyone, I've finally got around to working on my Photography website. Check it out and let me know what you think, and maybe how to improve it.

This tutorial text was written by Arnold Hubbard and was part of his comments for December.

I've taken the liberty of posting it here because the process is often asked about here and in other forums.

CROSS CHANNELS / CHANNEL SWAP
1 Open a Raw I/R photo (Do not change to mono )
2 Create an adjustment layer - CHANNELS
3 Slide RED channel from 100% to 0%
4 Slide BLUE channel from 0% to 100 %
5 Change RGB box from red to blue
6 Change RED channel back to 100%
7Change BLUE channel back to 0%
8 Create an adjustment layer - LEVELS
9 Adjust LEVELS then click on AUTO
10 Flatten LAYERS
11 Do any further adjustments :- BRIGHTNESS, CONTRAST , LUMINOSITY, SATURATION, ETC
12 NEUTRALIZE sometimes improves picture

There is no doubt that you can get a huge variety of results and I think this is all down to the weather conditions.
All my best results have been with photos taken in ” Good summer`s day weather ” - good sunshine, little white clouds well lit scene.
In poorer weather the blue can be much too dark and not easy to alter.

GOOD LUCK.   Posted: 02/09/2015 17:29:32
