      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 .

Opinions Please!

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone. Well, I was messing around with Photoshop some more and used a technique I found online to do some work on this image. I would like your honest opinion on this technique. I won't tell you my opinion so it won't sway yours. Please be brutally honest. I have nothing invested in this image so it won't hurt my feelings.

Thanks

It seems a little over-sharp almost a little grainy to me and due to the sharpness I find the bush in the background very distracting. I do like the contrast of colors on the truck.

Mike, would you post this in a B&W version as well? I think I'd like that better.

I like the effect of the heavy contrasty look, but think it might play better for me in B&W. The extra saturation brings out sharp spots of color in the subject and BG that are distracting my eye.

In the end, it's your eye, not mine, that determines if your art satisfies you. smilesmile

Yeah I think if the bush wasn't there it would definitely work. The altercation best suites the ol truck. I'd also like to see it in B&W. Cool pic

The B&W looks good. Any way you can just select the truck and apply the technique to it? I know the magic wand tool and the lasso can be difficult with all the objects this background has.

not that i know much about photography, but i think there's something about that weird spot of orange in the background that distracts my eye from the truck..... in the edited one, it pops much more for some reason..... otherwise, i like the effect on the truck itself....

If you really want to get wacky in photoshop, I would try a black and white background and the truck in full color.

Mike, some nice examples of different techniques. Always good to look at processing in a different light. I like the saturated, grainy look in the first and like the BW conversion as well.

    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor. 
    • Thanks for the humor.
    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.
