    Since the majority of photo edit applications...Lightroom, Capture One, etc have the ability to use presets for a once click edit, do you use them? This is more for people who shoot RAW, but it can be applied to those who also use presets on jpegs as well. I am curious how the response will...

    I don't like the way these look.

    I know this isn't the best photo I've taken and I'm not looking for a serious critique because its overall, a snapshot. I was about the head out the door for something and I really liked the way my cat, Luke, was laying in front of the door with his paws out front and the expression he had. So...

    Choosing the right monitor for ~1000 USD

    Greetings everyone, I need your advice regarding what a 27 inch 4K monitor I should choose for ca 1000 USD.
