  1. Re: New Photoshop ‘Select Subject’ Feature Gets Even Better

    I have had good results with Topaz Remask. Once you get to know the interface it produces a good mask, especially for tricky things like hair and trees.
  2. Re: Is the obsession with analogue gearing an obstacle to art?

    Ahh, but the really real artistes use ancient cameras and antiquated techniques and toxic chemicals because they know that THAT is art. A performance, like getting shot with a bullet.
  3. Re: Eco-Pro paper developer -- some observations

    I usually develop Ilford MG FB prints in eco-pro 1+9 for 3 minutes. I have not done extensive comparisons with other developers, but the contrast seems fine and the tone neutral.

    Wall-mount the enlarger so the head when full raised goes to about 6" below the ceiling. Then have your cabinetmaker make a base cabinet with an adjustable shelf instead of a top, so you can set it...

    Re: colour version of Rubylith

    I may be wrong, but I believe when rubylith was used for masking color images, it was the B&W lith negatives that were masked and not the originals. So no version was made just for color.
