      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

This is for all of us, and thought I should touch on this topic a bit since there has been a slew of new photographers hanging out in our ranks as of late.

THIS HAPPENED TO ME, SAVE YOURSELF don't let this happen to you.


I did some shooting over the weekend and much to my dismay when I started to Post process, I have a lot of work ahead of me to salvage my work. Not sure if this dust is from the sensor or maybe on my polorizer filter, but it sucks to have to fix in post processing.

Double check your cameras before each shoot. to save yourself the headache. Hecka cleaning cloth is cheap and so is a small blower. I can not beleive I let this happen to me, shame on me. But we have all done it. SO here are 2 examples I will post. First one is the origianl straight out of RAW conversion, second one has been fixed for the most part.

Just look for all the dark dots in the sky.


This one is fixed

definitely sensor spots, Paul! Mine looks like a mine field, I really need to get it cleaned. Good work cleaning it though.
