    Hi Eddie,

    I did these in photoshop using some of the picture filters. I was asking about your camera to see if it could shoot RAW photos. If shooting RAW I could do some nice HDR (high dynamic range) editing for you. If you can let me know what your after I may be able to play around with it a little more.

    Below is an example of what can be done using a RAW photo file of my dogs. 1st photo - original, 2nd - photo HDR, 3rd photo HDR converted to B&W and background removed.

    Original


    HDR


    HDR converted to B&W

    I never heard of RAW before and will look it up. I just take lots of pics for fun and delete most of them. Karen and I are going on a cruise in a couple of months and we thought it would be fun to make up some tshirts with Tyler TX on them and use pictures of Oscar, then post them on FB while we are in different places. I really like the black and white without any background, but your dogs look a lot better then the one of Oscar. I'm also wanting to see if I can convert a picture of him into a graphic of just one color. Solid and empty areas that look like him, but would be of any color, but just one color.

    Thanks,
    Eddie

    I looked up the specs on your camera. The current one doesn't support a RAW file but the SX50 does. Nothing you really need but does allow a lot more latitude when editing and also allows for creating HDR photos. The pic of my dogs in B&W are due to using a raw file and converting into HDR for more detail and highlights. Another thread would probably needed to get into all the details. I'll play with the photo of Oscar a bit tonight.

    and people seem to take it as gospel, without looking it up for themselves.

    I suspect brin was not getting it directly from the Gimp homepage.

    I've been using Gimp for editing since about 1998. My main use lately is a little resize script I run all my 4K by 3K pixels digital pics thru to make them 800x600.
