      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 .

Night Photos

Recommended Posts

Wanted to try again to take some night time photos untill my sister stole my camera and took this one, I told her it was just beginners luck. I wont tell you what her response was... Anyhow I cropped it and took out the light pole unfortunatley you can see where it was. (i have to work on that) There are spots on the lens I think its her finger prints. Any suggestions on making it better are ALWAYS welcome.

Dee Dee, I think the spots are dust specks on the sensor. If she used a smaller aperture, say f11 to f22, those specks show up more easily. The more you stop down the aperature the plainer they become.

My pp on things like removing objects from sky is to use the cloning brush (with a fairly large brush selected), making sure I've got a feathered-edge brush instead of a sharp-edged one, and sample from the color immediately alongside the thing I'm trying to clone out so it's not easy to see. You can also decrease the opacity of the cloning to help mend edges that are still visible.

I use photoshop CS2 for this. Not sure what you're using. There are quite a few ways to remove objects, and mine is only one of them. Others have other ways that are just as good.

With the light towers gone, it's a gorgeous composition, begginer's luck or not. gringrin

Dee Dee, with a vertical tower like that, I'd grab a sample just to the right of the bottom of the tower and drag it all the way up the tower. It will keep duplicating what's just to the left of the tower, erasing the tower. Then go to the lower right side and do the same thing. I do this at 100 percent opacity and then go in and mend and blend with opacity around 50 percent.

It's just a matter of practice and experimentation. The more of both you do, the better the results.

That sure is purty. All it needs is a flock of geese flying by.

Actually, fingerprints on a lens won't normally show up in a photo. Anything that close to the lens would be so out of focus, that it would be rendered invisible.

DeeDee, I think that looks great. I know where the poles were and I really can't tell. If I didn't know where they were I'd never be able to tell. Very good job with the cloning.

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
