My wife is an alumni of Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS and is looking to help defray the costs for a student there to attend a 4-week course at her job (the Dauphin Island Sea Lab).

If anyone following me is up for donating a little to help the student to attend that would be AWESOME! Plus, the lab is a non-profit so the donation is tax-deductible.

Please help! Every little bit is appreciated!

I'll repost this with a fix shortly, but for anyone seeing this old post, the correct paypal link is:

THANK YOU

Hey ! Want to try a developer that doesn't conform to the status quo? Filmulator emulates the way is developed! The number of sliders are minimal, but the results do not disappoint.

One of the enhancements recently brought to RawTherapee is a threshold slider for the Sharpening and Microcontrast tools, coded by Ingo. It lets your photos appear to be more sharp and have more texture while suppressing the oversharpened-look.
Compare the sky and rock in these screenshots:
The first: no sharpening.
The second: regular sharpening tools.
The third: new AMaZE+VNG4 demosaicing and RL Deconvolution in combination with the threshold adjuster.

Mine doesn't have four famous fellas in it, but I was walking around with some fellow photography nerds! :)

Switching Themes

I finally get around to setting up an alternate dark style for my website and to persist the choice users make.

I also get to tie in an amazing book I get to read to my kids "The Dark" by Lemony Snicket. :D

Heathers should not be a documentary.

It appears image upload are working correctly for me again. :)

So here's a Mairi in B&W. :)

@patdavid I see that my instance is using the latest stable release while mastodon.social is using v. 2.4 rc3 which came out 3 days ago

Is anyone else seeing image upload problems, or is it just me? This image is also cropped funny... :(

Here's the actual file from Flickr:

flickr.com/photos/patdavid/275

Compare it to what gets uploaded and you can see something is wonky...

I noticed while making a new post a moment ago that it appears that uploads are being cropped funny? Any ideas on who I can poke @Gargron ?

For reference, here's the actual image from Flickr: flic.kr/p/Hw5TSw

I'm uploading a copy of the image to demonstrate.

'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And loves dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
