You look a tad foolish being sure you know what Mark was referring to. Maybe he was, but you’re not inside his head (I hope for Mark’s sake).
Also, there’s no drama in the factual statement And no, you can’t use another program and get these ‘labs’ to do the same work, even if you were told where they were.
You would be lucky to get anywhere inside the facilities. And no, these are not ‘labs’ by a long shot!

There you go! Still on the first page and already resorting to name calling. That was quick. I was about to say "you surely know what rhetorics and hyperbole as a rhetorical tool are" but now I am not so sure you do.

The "drama" is not in the facts about your "undisclosed locations," whether you call them facilities, labs, or "labs." The drama is in the underlying assumption in that statement that no other combination of software and publicly open labs can produce results as good as those in Apple's secret facilities. I've seen a number of comparative tests, across the world, and while Apple might come up high, they are by no means always the best in those tests.

I've printed two photo books through MagCloud. A 100 pager and a 64 pager. I was very pleased with both, especially with the very low prices. The Covers are high gloss, the interior pages semi-gloss. I'd judge the color reproduction to be very good if your files good. Probably less quality than the much more  costly publishers out there such as the Apple licensee. I'm in the midst of a 64+ page book featuring my Southwest USA images and have no qualms about using MagCloud again. Here's a screenshop of their current pricing:

Very dramatic image and very nice too  Smiley

Mark, may I ask if you have used or applied a software filter/tool onto this image and if so can I ask which one? It's just that it also has a very smooth sort of polished look to it, which I also like  Smiley

Hi Peter,

Is the layer you are trying to distort the 'Background' layer and if so it is probably locked with a small padlock icon showing to the right of the layer?

If it is, then either turn the background layer into a normal layer by double clicking on it and then follow the on-screen instructions to convert it to a normal editable layer, or you can duplicate the background layer (Ctrl+j) and then work on the duplicate layer above the background layer, before flattening the image back down to a single background layer once again after adding your corrections to the image.

I cannot remember, but doesn't CS5 have the 'Lens Correction' filter? If so, you might find this easier to work with for correcting keystoning and it should also work with a background layer directly, without any of the need for doing the above steps  Wink

Peter,
The LuLa forums used to be well populated with seasoned photographers and some pro's whose goals seemed to be more directed at working around problems, sharing tricks, and experiences and anecdotal stories.  Overall I learned a lot about how to make better images and what gear was good, etc.    Now there are one or two posters that tie up every thread, artistic or not, with long winded posts with lots of charts and other stuff to prove exactly what?  Probably only to show what they know or think they know to the rest of the world in a very pedantic and selfish way.  As and example some years back when the topic of color aliasing came up, it was always about how to work around it - such as stopping down, stepping back, caprock filters and so on.  It wasn't about who was right and charts and stuff, it was about getting images made and making good images.   I really miss those days here.    I post my images elsewhere since there is no reward for posting here. 
Eric

I agree Mark, but I am sure you were not referring to the NDA part of it, but to this drama:

"And no, you can’t use another program and get these ‘labs’ to do the same work, even if you were told where they were."

I briefly checked the CFV-50c back (not sure that has a H mount considering it is styled after the V-series)

The CFV is a fixed V mount, so it can't be used on a H camera.

To gain access to that modern CMOS sensor, you'd need a H5D-50c, or a PhaseOne IQ150/250 - both of which are out of your budget - or a Pentax 645Z.

For critical work, I am looking for an update that would provide 10 bit 4:2:2 through HDMI-out.  If and when that happens, you might see a few cinematographers and DPs adopt this camera as a part of their arsenal. 

It would have to compete with the high quality, flexibility of raw and affordability of Blackmagic's offerings.

I donno, Seamus. It isn't if you wait long enough, but sometimes you feel you just shot the greatest thing since Behind the Gare St. Lazare, and it isn't until after you've posted it and checked back to absorb all the kudos that you find somebody has pointed out that it's more like behind the pruning shed than behind the Gare. At that point you begin to see where you went wrong and swear you'll never again post in haste -- an oath you'll probably violate before the weather turns.

This only started happening after I did the Option Command and I started up Aperture and rand the 3 options: Repair Permissions, Repair Database and Rebuild Database.
