Hi guys,

Anyone is using ipad Pro for part of the workflow?

For photo editing, sketching and publishing a video?

For photo workflow, I understand best is staying in front of big monitor. But how about using it as tethering tool?

For sketching with apple pencil, does it complete the workflow as you don't need another computer?

Same as video editing, does it complete the workflow and don't need another computer.

read up some review but would like to know any users out there that can share first hand experience.

thank you.

Computer Hardware / 2k or 4k monitor for photo editing?
« on: July 10, 2019, 06:22 »
Hi All,

Do you use a 4k monitor for photo editing?

currently using a HD monitor and thinking to get additional monitor so can work on two monitors. 2k(WQHD) and 4k price seems double, for your experience the 4k really worth for the double price?

Thanks.

Found out that login page is in istock esp, but after login I can't really find how to know how much royalties I have earned.

Just update my tax interview and how to i know how much I have earned and how to get paid?

Thank you.

Hi all,

my 128g ssd laptop suddenly lost the partition D:, the last time i used my laptop and D: drive is not accessible and showed message needs to be format. But after a restart it is not there any more, computer can be used as normal but I have no idea how to recover it.

try some software but can't get it back.

I wonder is it related to upgrade to windows 10 but it was running fine after upgrade and only happened this few days.

Hi All,

i try out to keywords in lightroom, was using bridge before

But it seems the lightroom always reset the keywords sequence as a, b, c..and on.

Is there a way I can keep the keywords sequence, as more important keywords followed by less important keywords.

General - Stock Video / remove a dust spot on video
« on: March 11, 2015, 07:54 »
Hi All,

I wonder is there an easy way to remove a dust spot on a video? i took the video on tripod, and a dust spot on blue sky.

I am using adobe premiere, I think I can put a tiff or jpg layer on the video and render it.

I try to look for a tutorial but can't find how to do it.

anyone can give some instructions? thank you.

I previous export mov to tiff and edit in lightroom and put back as video, but it takes time and waste hard drive space.

thanks in advance.

Hi all,

General - Stock Video / make for 4k video
« on: October 17, 2014, 00:36 »
Hi guys,

I made time lapse photos and since all the photos are more than 4k pixels on longer edge so I make it into 4k video.

but what is the right resolution for 4k video? do i need to set it to 4096 x 2160? what is the ratio?

I used quicktime which has option to convert to 1080HD but not 4k.

General Photography Discussion / sony A7 users discussion
« on: July 20, 2014, 16:58 »
hi all,

anyone got Sony A7, would like to start a thread for general discussion of this camera..

i just got A7 and realize my is the japanese version which the menu in japanese are not able to change to english. anyone know a hack?

i use this camera mainly with manual lense of nikon and pentax using some china made lense adapter.

I realize everytime i took a photo the digital viewfinder will just show the taken photo for a second or more (it seems the image is saved). Is this something can be fixed? i have used class 10 SD card which is still not fast enough?

in general i find the camera is good since i can use some manual lense, and the full frame image since produce better quality than my APSC DSLR before (which i don't really know the reason, the higher resolutions on FULL FRAME sensor?)

i also find some button of sony a7 is a bit strange, like the zoom on preview images is C2 which is awfully on top of the screen.

General Stock Discussion / Mirrorless camera-sony, olympus
« on: June 30, 2014, 02:36 »
Hi guys,

I am thinking of getting a mirrorless camera, like olympus em-1 or sony A7

basically i am thinking to get it more for ease of using and light to bring around.

anyone have experiences to share of it?

I have a question that sony is full frame camera..which mean a bigger sensor and won't have crop factor on lense.

will a full frame camera provide more details and resolution of images? there are a lot of talks about A7 and A7r, it seems A7r will give better for big printing output so for digital usage it is not necessary?

Illustration - General / use ipad as writing tablet
« on: June 22, 2014, 08:37 »

do you guys use it? try to search for it but didn't come out as any app..

i know it is not a replacement of wacom, but i think it is useful when one need a handwrtiing tablet with precision is not that critical.

Software / lightroom scroll wheel setting
« on: May 24, 2014, 05:41 »
hi all,

when i edit photo under lightroom develop page..

the below is the 'row' of photo..when i choose one photo if i use my mouse scroll wheel roll forward, it move to right, if scroll wheel roll downward, it move to left..it is ok.

but when it moves, it 'jumps' like with 8 photos in between, i wonder can i control the setting? like i will like if i roll it, it moves slow next by next photos..

sometimes i took a series of similar photos then if i move the selected photo is out of the screen or i just spend time like right roll and left roll.. looking for the photos. If i have to deal with it always it becomes a problem.

anyone know i can do a setting for the wheel roll in lightroom?

Hi all,

I am doing a panorama using raw files.. so i selected 12 files in lightroom and choose edit as panorama in photoshop..and select auto blend option.

But the final panorama is alighted correctly by not blended together, so it is with visible edges.

I tried to use 9 files or 10 files it seems the final panorama will blend together without problem.

I wonder what is the reason? due to limitation of file size?

what you guys do? should i merge the 9 files first and save as tiff files and merge with the rest of two files?

thanks.

Symbiostock - General / how to login own website..kind of silly
« on: October 27, 2013, 10:41 »
Hi all,

I think this is kind of silly question, but how do I login my own website for managing everything?

the symbiostock is a theme of wordpress so, we will login the wordpress interface to manage everything.

I got lost a bit where to login after a while.. i use 'please log-in' link on my website and i can login to wordpress dashboard.

But isn't the 'please log-in' is for user to buy image?

got a bit confused.. I hosted the site on godaddy, so does it mean I don't need to login godaddy after I set ftp and some basic setting?

Video Equipment / Sofware / Technique / MOV file questions
« on: October 17, 2013, 06:06 »
Hi all,

I use a pentax K-30 and i have a few MOV video files which aren't able to be imported to lightroom, but i can play it with quicktime.

Anyway, i am thinking maybe that few files have some problem so i tried to resave it into mov format using mpeg streamclip.

the original file is 17.01MB, resave another file as mov, and it is 263.85MB. Why the size becomes so big as they are same format?

Hi All,

I tried to figure out how to customize the basic look of my site, but have no clue.

basically i want to remove those link, and maybe only left 'login' link..



and also I wonder how can i display some images on my front page?

I saw some widget like latest images, featured images. How about if it is possible to display grid of my images on front page? or big thumbnail display as categories.

I have gone through some symbiostockguide but can't find the way..

thanks.

Shutterstock.com / panorama merge photos size
« on: October 06, 2013, 23:40 »
hi all,

I did some panorama merged photo which end up as quite big size, more than 10000pixel long size. What size you reduce to meet the minimum shutterstock requirement?

I saw shutterstock offer super size, but everything seems same price so it doesn't really make sense to offer the maximum size.
