TIL to search date ranges in Google Photos

I learned something new about Google Photos. I can examine the photos taken between two dates by entering #date_range:YYYYMMDD-YYYYMMDD in the search box. I have images going back more than twenty years in Google Photos so a way to view a selection of those images is really useful! I haven’t […]

Drag the Lightroom Histogram

I discovered yesterday (or maybe rediscovered?) that you can drag the histogram in Lightroom to adjust the exposure of a photo. From right to left, these are the sliders affected when you drag: It can appear like a blunt, inaccurate tool to modify the exposure of a photo, but do […]

Adjust the time on your camera for daylight saving

If you’re in this part of the world, then daylight savings means the clocks went back an hour last weekend. Your phone adjusted itself, as did some other gadgets, but your oven probably didn’t, and your camera almost certainly didn’t update either. I couldn’t possibly describe how to fix the […]

Edna Egbert on the Ledge

Well, I bought several books recently. They’re all photography books, but I wanted to share one photo from the book I bought yesterday. The book is New York exposed : photographs from the Daily News, and you can read it online on archive.org or buy it in a few places […]

The best way to browse Instagram

Instagram is becoming a video site (mirror) like TikTok, isn’t it? I want to see photos when I go to Instagram. I don’t want to see reel after reel from suggested accounts just because I liked something random. I only ever post photos on Instagram, so this is a shout […]

My dog is the master of this

Any time we go out Diego does his best to let us know that we can not possibly go out without him. This is why I’ve been spotted carrying him around supermarkets in a special carrier bag, or been booted out of other supermarkets for having him in that bag […]

The old Nik Collection is still free

Nik Collection 4.0 was announced recently but comments here say that if you have a previous version it always shows an update warning that can’t be turned off. Within a couple weeks of usage, I received the on-screen notification when launching the software below telling me to update. However, clicking […]

Pick your best photos faster

James Popsys explains how he picks the best photos from his shoots. Video is pre-pandemic. It’s refreshing to hear someone mention going out to photograph and not mention social distancing. “In the field” shoot a black image if you see “the one” that works. In Lightroom import your photos immediately. […]

Howto: sync recent photos in Lightroom Classic

Lightroom Classic comes with 20GB of space on Adobe’s cloud service (Lightroom CC/Web/app) but did you know that you can sync photos to the cloud and then edit them on your phone without using that space? The original photos are not synced, but a smaller cut down smart preview is […]

HOWTO: Square Instagram images with white borders

I noticed that a lot of Instagram users, such as Alan Schaller to name but one, were posting images with thick white borders to make their images into the square images that Instagram favours. I like the striking look these images have in the Instagram gallery. I wondered for some […]
