      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

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.
