A digital camera or digicam is a camera that encodes digital images and videos digitally and stores them for later reproduction. Most cameras sold today are digital, and digital cameras are incorporated into many devices ranging from PDAs and mobile phones (called camera phones) to vehicles. Digital and film cameras share an optical system, typically using a lens with a variable diaphragm to focus light onto an image pickup device.  Digital cameras can display images on a screen immediately after being recorded, and store and delete images from memory. Many digital cameras can also record moving videos with sound. Some digital cameras can crop and stitch pictures and perform other elementary image editing.

I can use Fuzzy Select to find the colored areas I want. How do I then add a dark order to that region?

Right now, it just twinkles to show it is active...so how do I transition to actually use that region?

Thanks

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

I saw a video which had a long list of optional tools to be used in the Layers window, but I only see a few...

Layers

I have a Mac. Is that the difference?

Thanks.

I would like to buy a selfie stick for my iPhone 6 if it let me take pictures in a different perspective, and not of myself.

Sometimes, I want to be a few feet taller.

Can it be used for this?

What is the longest one I could get?

Can it secure my phone safely?

Thanks

I would like the ability to come back that image and update any element which I add today. Does each event go in its own layer?

Or, is there another way to be able to edit, for example, a line? I may want to reduce the line width a month from now...

Thanks.

On the following advertisement, I see an item in the picture that does not appear in the list of items at the bottom of the page...

Any idea what it is?

See attached image...

ALSO, I have a question about the size of the memory card(s). I see this has two at 16GB each. I also see a refurbished camera with a single 64 GB card.

Can you give me some ice how fast a 16GB card would fit with this camera? Let's say, distant shots require me the max resolution and file size per pic.

How many would a 16BG card hold?

Thanks

I see how to use Gimp for Mac to draw a line, but it's to thick. I want 1 pixel.

I tried using the Brush editor with no luck.

What's the trick?

I have Gimp 2.8.22 (Mac)

Thanks

On one image.

How do I do this? I assume a new Layer would be smart, but can not get this to work.

They are different heights and will need slight adjustments to dimensions.

This one does not work...

I do not see the second image...

Thanks.

Is it possible that I have some kind of spy camera around my shirt which also can pass me thru metal detector. And also send me the live stream video.

I am looking for the best flexibility for the money. I see it may cost upward of $600 to get a complete setup for the Nikon Coolpix P900.

What broader options to I have? It seems, multiple lenses would be useful. Like this one:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CQJHJ2E/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_bCf6T_c_x_3_w?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-4&pf_rd_r=7Q91KRWBTPT978JNBWFR&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=87d2a035-5f2a-50a4-93d7-a2960559aa53&pf_rd_i=3017941

And if I were to buy a model that was state of the art 3 or 5 years ago, I wold expect to see more of them selling used on Ebay.

Suggestions?

Thanks

I tried the trick with a telescope and shooting into the eye piece from my cell phone camera and my Canon. This did not work for me at all. Also, the act of pushing the button to take the picture throws the image.

I think I need to pony up some cash and get a digital camera I can use to shoot buildings at about 3-4 miles. I do not need great detail, like if it is some kind of product shot, though.

I need an "all in one" solution. Maybe even with different lenses.

I  do not want to buy new, though. I am happy getting used equipment at a discount. Especially since the odd are higher I could get all the various accessories,like remote trigger and extra lens(es) at one price.

Please give me some idea of the camera I could consider. It should be a model that is a 2-5 years old, that may have been pricey in its day, but it behind the curve by today's top standards.

These are recreational pictures I will take for my interest in architecture, and not in any way professional, but maybe the camera would be a former professional grade some years ago.

Thanks..

Free Tool: SSL Checker

Scans your site and returns information about your SSL implementation and certificate. Helpful for debugging and validating your SSL configuration.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I need to:

- add an image
- make changes to that image, like adding markers, lines, notes and labels

But I need to be able to move them and update them in subsequent sessions.

Obviously, the JPG (or other format) would be the format for output, but a Gimp file format must retain these object details in the file itself so they can be saved, then updated.


How do I do this with Gimp for Mac?

I have a Mac and need a basic image editing tool, bot not as basic as PaintBrush.

I need to ad line and text and various elements, and have the ability to change them later. I find I cannot edit a "flat image file" because I am limited to undo, and can not save the file and edit it later.

Why options do I have? I want a quick learning curve and hope I do not need some expensive tool.

I know for $29/month I can get an online license to Adobe, which totals $360/year! But I may consider that service for a few months IF it has tools I can use.

Thanks.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to display the volume meter on the screen for my Vixia HF G20 GD CamCorder.

I am using a RODE Wireless mic... and it works...

Bt there are times we would like to see the screen "volume bar" on.

When I check eBay for:

4" aperture refractor telescope

I see interesting stuff, that is $150 or higher. But at the bottom I see prices around $60.

For example:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astronomical-Refractor-Telescope-w-Phone-Mount-Adapter-Kids-Toy-Fast-Free-Ship-/172455991465?hash=item28272d98a9:g:TlgAAOSwA3dYKmzX

Can I photograph a building that's 3 miles away with this? Or is this for the star-gazing only?

Thanks.

I need a telescope which has a much longer focal length for shots that are 3 miles away. I need a digital camera, obviously.

What URL's could you point me to that would get me a camera that can do this, without breaking the bank?

eBay, Buy It Now can sometimes produce a good deal. And that's where I would look for a used camera...


Thanks

I happen to live in a hilly area and see some shots about 3 mile away that I wold like to make more clearly.

I recently bought a Canon 25X optical zoom SX620 HS

which is a pretty handy camera for closer shots and fits nicely into my pocket. I am happy with the camera but would be thrilled if I could get better detail on shots that are 2 to 3 miles away.

I have not played with any adjustments yet (out of fear) but are there settings that could make picture less granular?

Thanks.

I see an image with the following description...under Fair Use.

"This image is a faithful digitisation of a unique historic image, and the copyright for it is most likely held by the person who created the image or the agency employing the person. It is believed that the use of this image may qualify as fair use under the Copyright law of the United States. Other use of this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement.

I do not get it.

Please explain if you can .

I need to photograph and take videos at great distance, but find the device:

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/838756-REG/Canon_520_B_PowerShot_ELPH_520_HS.html

too grainy.

How do I max out the resolution? I think such a great camera may work fine for me, if I could adjust it.

Thanks.

1) I took a picture and found the resolution too low. Can I make it higher res? iPhone 6.

2) I just ran the latest OS update and when I take pictures, then plug in the phone to my Mac Book, I see now new picture available for import. What's that all about?

How can I get the picture onto my MacBook short of emailing them to myself as attachments?

We have 2 large screen / HDMI input TVs.  We've been paying for 2 cable boxes - 1 is a (whole house) DVR and the other is just a cable box.  There's only 2 of us in the house / we never watch tv on both TVs at once.

I can return the 1 cable box and save about $12 a month, I'd like to be able to feed the 2nd TV (now without a cable box) with a signal from the HDMI output of the DVR cable box.  Yeah, we have to run between the 2 TVs to change channels, etc.

What's the max cable length for an HDMI cable and still have a usable signal at the far end?

I'm familiar with coax and A/B switchboxes and signal splitters to get the signal to both TVs (and either use the A/B switch or just splitter depending on signal quality). But don't know about HDMI.

Is there an equiv to a coax splitter for HDMI? Does signal suffer? or is it digital so it's OK if we are within that max length above?

Or is there an A/b box to split hdmi?

And is there a way to get the remote's signal from the 2nd TV down to the first? (that gadget that you clip the lightsource in front of the DVR box's infra red receiver?

is all of this going to cost more than the $12 / month?  or do you have some other ideas?
