Thread Title: Scanning 1x3 Negatives

Bev Caine   Bev Caine
Converting from negative to digital.
Go to image - adjustments - invert
Go to Auto Tone, Auto Contrast, Auto Color
Go to Image - Adjustments - Vibrance and adjust vibrance and saturation.
From there, I opened Topaz Sharpen AI and followed that with Topaz Studio 2 and chose I look I liked.
I also tried removing some of the grain   Posted: 09/03/2020 19:26:50

Thread Title: Interest in Luminar Webinar

Bev Caine   Bev Caine
Are any of you interested in a webinar on Luminar 4. I believe I may be able to set it up if there is enough interest.   Posted: 06/02/2020 10:43:38

What would you plan on covering about Luminar 4?   Posted: 06/03/2020 14:51:51

I have a connection with their director of Education and if there is interest, I could probably get him to do a webinar of how to use the program, the effects, etc. It's really amazing in several respects. Changing a complete sky for example in less than 5 seconds is something I never dreamed could be done without having to hand pick out the leaves, etc. from the trees to keep them realistic. Plus Luminar 4 also offers "looks" etc. in an attempt to compete with Topaz.

Stanley, if I can get this put together, you should try to join in just as a learning experience and get some input on saving time and maximizing results

That's an interesting offer, except that I'm still working on Lightroom, and trying to get into Photoshop. So I don't think I could get much out of Luminar 4 until I develop my LR and PS skills more.   Posted: 06/03/2020 15:18:38

I also have Lightroom and PS but would be interested in seeing it.   Posted: 06/03/2020 17:17:47

Oh, I'd attend. I've attended many talks which were over my head. And I've always managed to get something from every talk.

I would love to have a lesson on masking in Luminar 4.
That is the program I use.   Posted: 06/04/2020 12:04:39
