      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 .

There was a lot of clone tool used here to get rid of some other branches to clean it up. He was standing in a forest intially and I shot straight into the sun so had some flare to fix but I am happy with the results. Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

Ya BUzz, I noticed the sensor spots, I had a lot more actually I just missed a couple while cloning. I need to clean my sensor soon. I am just a little leary about cleaning the sensor. I am sure I won't hurt anything I just don't know the best method. Time to search the forums, I think I saw a post about it somewere.

Paul, most use the Copper Hill method, and a quick online search will bring you there. The supplies cost me less than $30 and there are enough supplies to last me 10 years. Feels a bit hinky the first time, but after cleaning my sensors many times over the last few years it's just routine.

Dan (DBL) here helped me with my first camera cleaning (Thanks again Dan) and like Steve said, the first time is a little scary but then it's nothing. Instead of the cloning tool, take a look into the "patch tool". It works cleaner wonders.

Ahh yes it is hidden under the healing tool. For PC folks you right click the healing tool and it is one of the options. Mac.....well you will find it Steve. You know I learn more innovative quick tips about Photoshop talking with other photographers than talking about camera settings. There are so many cool ways that Photoshop can help with enhancements its unreal!

Select the Patch tool and be sure the Source option is checked in the tool options bar. Then select the area you want to fix left click and drag out the selection. Just like using the Lasso tool, which you could use to make the selection as well. Just switch back to the patch tool when you are done.

Now drag the selection to an area that has about the same color and texture as the area you want to replace - and just release the mouse button, and you have an instant repair. Works great removing lines under eyes, removing a spot, or other un-wanted parts of a photo.

Try it you I'm guessing you will like it.
