      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 .

Noise Ninja tips

Recommended Posts

Mike, make sure you download and install the ISO profiles for your camera from the Noise Ninja Web site. That way when you tell the program to profile the image it'll have the right profile. They're free and easy to install (instructions included). 'Course, maybe you already did that. grin

I haven't played around much with it at all, just usually using default settings, which has worked very well.

I also rarely use it to remove noise from the main portion of my subject, like a face, because it tends to soften things just slightly. So I do a lot of lassoing and selective noise reduction on shadows and some mid range areas when needed.

The first thing to do is go to their site and download the profile for your camera. It will make the noise removal more accurate.

Go easy on using it globally, it has a tendency to make skin look plastic and if used strongly can knock a lot of detail out.

It does work good if you use it only on selected parts of your photo such as a background. I also use it for sharpening, if you are interested in that technique let me know I can e-mail you the settings, though they are specific to the Mark IIN. Some experimenting will get you close though.

Hope that helps.

Ok, so I have the image open in Photoshop. I open the noise ninja filter. Now I click on "Profiles" and I load the appropriate profile for the ISO and camera? Is that right? Is that all there is to in unless I need to mess around with it some?

Thanks

Mike, I'm going from memory here, but I think that's all you have to do. You MAY have to close PS and reopen it once the profiles are loaded, but I'm not sure.

The directions, as I recall, are there on the NN site where you download the profiles.

Did you load profiles not only for the D80 but for your older camera(s) so you can do finer NN work on your older images?

I got the profiles loaded from the HSOforum. Just making sure I am processing the image correctly. Thanks for reminding me, I'll download the profiles for the D50 as well. Great idea. I know I have images that I could save from that one.

Thanks

Mike I actually use different numbers than the default numbers because I also do use NN for sharpening at times. They really are camera specific though. Don't be afraid to mess with a few of them to see how it affects your shots. You can always set it back to the default and start over again.

    • Way cool. Do you have some kind of protective cover to put over the panels when you going down the road?  Lot's of ice chunks and other road debris flying around in the winter. Even the road salt build up over time may not be good on them.
    • Bet there weren't any leftovers.....
    • jmercil......... In your last pic, are those PC fans up near the  ceiling?  If so, tell me a little more about your setup.  Fans only at the top, or top and bottom?  Some type of pvc flange where they wall mount?  PVC pipe in the walls? etc, etc.
