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:


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.


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.

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:

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

I saw a 360 degree camera the other day and thought they might come in handy for me. Maybe I wold use it while I am giving a virtual tour, for example.

What kinds of things are they good for? And bad for?

They seem impossible to edit...

Is it so the viewer can have a "Google Earth" kind of sensation?


Can any one recommend a free CAD viewer which also allows for very simple editing (just adding labels).  It needs to be able to read dwg files.

Thanks for the help
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...

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?

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.

Please remember that the non-free content criteria require that non-free images on Wikipedia must not "[be] used in a manner that is likely to replace the original market role of the original copyrighted media." Use of historic images from press agencies must only be of a transformative nature, when the image itself is the subject of commentary rather than the event it depicts (which is the original market role, and is not allowed per policy)."

I do not get it.

Please explain if you can .

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


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.

I'm interested in making some short animated .gifs of actions that I'm taking on my desktop computer. (e.g. showing where to click or demonstrating the effects of some action on my computer). Would like a really simple, streamlined way to make the recording and get it saved as an animated .gif. A cross-platform (Mac and Windows) option is preferred, but I'm open to solutions that only work on one or the other if what you like isn't cross-platform.

Any of you have advice on what ways you like to do this or software you recommend for it?

I am testing out whether the lower resolution will work out in my book, since the lower cost is a bonus.

Could someone please post two images from the web, one of each resolution?

I see people upload pictures onto Yelp and Yelp provides Share links for Facebook and Twitter. But sharing an image URL is not the same as sharing the image itself.

Are those images in the public domain?

I do not see any warnings or requirements for attribution. But I would not use this image unless I learned it was indeed public domain.

Does anyone know?

I have a JPG file that I would like to swap the pixels, left to right, and create a mirror imagoes the picture. I use a Mac.

What tool can I use for this? The image is best kept private, so a program running locally is best.

I do have Paintbrush and ColorSync Utility installed.


I've probably titled this thread incorrectly... however i'll try and explain what i am looking for.

I built a Wordpress theme a few years ago that has several different 'template' components added to it, such as:

- gallery
- text boxes
- testimonials
- video boxes
... etc (+30 other UI components)

I offer this theme to my lower tier clients... those that have a very small budget, and just need a quick website presence up and running.

I would like to be able to sit with a client, and present all of the UI components in some form of 'wireframed' or 'cartoonised' view and NOT the real life view of each component, so that i can build the layout of the site with the client there and then.

I know i could just build it using the real life view of each UI component, however clients start obsessing over the aesthetics, colors and fonts... which i rather propose via a completed design at the end.

I have thought about printing each of the UI components on a piece of card, but I don't always get a chance to sit with my clients face to face... so instead I have designed to built a draggable UI website with all of the wireframed UI components available to move around etc.

But... i still need some tool to create all of these UI Wireframe components. Can anyone recommend a tool for creating UI Wireframe Kits?

I was also looking at building a page with all of the Ui components and then using some magical photoshop style to 'cartoonise' the UI.

Any other …
I get problem that 1st picture file is NOT 256*256 and 2nd file not 480*800, while I did already adjust the files by IrFanView. How to ensure no problem?

I'm creating an html5 banner using Google Web Designer. I've created the banner and published it. When I view the published version I noticed that it takes sometime to load.

Someone else on my team is also creating HTML5 banners. The banner that he creates loads instantly even though it's a larger file size. We compared our files and other than the actual assets, the way the banner was created and published is the same.

I'm constantly reviewing various web and app designs from my team.

We use a very traditional approach, which involves printing the designs, and then marking the changes with pen:

- crossing out sections we don't need
- adding notes about UI
- drawing on top of them

Can anyone recommend software that will allow a team to collaborate on a screenshot.

- turn markup on and off
- delete various markup
- add new markup and note
- add comments

Thank you in advance for your help.
I'm getting a logo done by someone through fiverr. I'm not a graphic designer, though I've done some simple editing with the GIMP. My understanding is that a vector file format is a requirement if I want to be able to edit or resize the logo image without losing quality, and that a .psd file can provide that as well as allowing editing of text components of the logo.

I've been given a .psd file, but it appears to just have a single layer in it that loses quality if I increase the size. Also, to be able to change the text in the logo, I was expecting each type (ie combination of font/size/colour) of text to have its own layer, and be editable as text.

For quality graphic design work, is there a standard way logos would be delivered in vector format to allow editing of them?

Should components of the logo be editable as text like I describe above?

Can anyone share an example .psd file that demonstrates what I describe above?

I'm happy to share a copy of my logo files with experts by private message, but I'd rather not share it in the body of the question. Thanks!
Is there a way to have the Adobe Creative Suite program auto-save as you work on it to the local computer. We work in a networked environment so all files are saved on the server - however some times the server might become unavailable and we would want to have a current version on the workstation so that we could continue to work.  We don't want to change the default saving protocol in this process - when we actually choose save it will save to the server.  This seems to be available in a lot of CAD type programs. Not sure if it is available in Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.  If not built into the program any utility that would do the same thing would be appreciated. So the idea would be as we are working, every x amount of time the work we are doing is saved locally.  When we decide to do an actual explicit save it would be saved to the server.
Hi Experts,
Can I embed a .jpg image in using Base64 in my vb.net application.  I have no problem when the image is a .png, but .jpg's don't show up.

Here is the code I am using in my vb.net app:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim TEST1 As String
        TEST1 = TextBox1.Text
        WebBrowser1.DocumentText = TEST1
    End Sub

Open in new window

Works great when the code I enter in TextBox1.text is something like  <img src=""data:image/png;base64, ...

but when it's a .jpg file it doesn't work.
I even tried changing the code in TextBox1.Text to something like <img src=""data:image/jpg;base64, ...
But it doesn't work.

Do I have to convert my .jpg images to .png?
If so, how?

thanks in advance,
