    Question question about Camera

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know if there is a new program of the camera to make it more interesting?

    Or could somebody write software for it, so we can take like black and white pics or create movies?

    thanks.

    Welcome to pinstack. The best way I know of would be to load the pics to your pc and add effects using photo software.

    Re: question about Camera

    The camera itself won't take videos at current. I'm unaware if there is a way to make an "animated' video out of lots of photos, but perhaps someone else knows.

    As far as good free software for image editing, I tend to use IrfanView (free) to do very basic manipulation. There's a way to convert to greyscale (Image --> Convert to Greyscale) as well as Sepia (Image --> Effects --> Sepia). There are actually a bunch of simple manipulations in the Image --> Effects menu.

    For more advanced photo editing and for all my photo storage and catalog needs, I use Adobe Lightroom (Not free in the least) and Adobe Photoshop. But I'm a somewhat serious amature photographer. For light use, Adobe Photoshop Elements works pretty well and it's under $100. Other than that, there is Gimp which is free but might only run on Unix / Linux. It's pretty nice though.
    As always, just my opinion...

    Good advice...

    Going from Photoshop to Gimp isn't too bad.

    I agree that it's not user friendly, but neither is photoshop. With photo software, if you want it done right, you have to learn difficult programs. Cheap programs do nothing but ruin otherwise good images.

    Gimpshop does make it a little easier by mimicing the photoshop layout, but I am a photoshop guy through and through

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I would recommend photoshop elements! Its cheap and does all the basics of photoshop. If you have a digital camera, look in the box to see if it came with any editing software. Most do. Probably not the best, but it should do basic editing.

    Gimp is free but its far from user friendly. If you come from a photoshop background, you may not have a problem.
