This year we were spending our holiday in Croatia. It was a great and short holiday, as usually.
Croatia’s Adria is one of my favorite places for summer relax. The sea is clear, the beach is rocky, just as I like it. People are kind (yeap, they live from the tourist) and very professional. In any restaurant you could speak Croatian, English, German and on some parts near Italy even Italian. The food is high-class and you could just occasionally make a mistake by entering in any of their restaurants, – as almost all the restaurants are at same (high) level. – This is true for the seaside, for sure, for other parts I’m not sure.
I really like their old towns beside the sea. This year we were wondering around Istria.
We were at visiting Labin, Rabac, Pazin, Rovinj, just to mention few.
Today, I’m uploading pictures only from Labin, just few.
More to come soon.
Today is D day! Or at least for Bibble 5.
Today at Photokina Bibble Labs is about to introducing Bibble 5, with lots of new features.
Stay tuned, because (I think) this is going to make a big blast.
Well, its been a while when I last wrote about my Mac adventure. This is the third part and the fourth post on this topic. (To find them all, just click the “apple project” category.)
Meanwhile I bought the same Mac I’ve been testing. So no doubt, I liked it, (for the price I get it.)
To be honest, small things does count (double):
- size – it fits my photo bag
- weight – not too heavy, I still can carry my bag if I do not pack it up with too many lenses
As you might know I’m a Ubuntu guy. I like Linux, OSS and I enjoy using it.
Once I was a C/C++ developer working on Windows, creating Windows applications. So I know Windows quite well (not much changed). Nowadays each time I have to sit in front of a Windows machine as a devloper I’ll get frustrated, as my productivity drops by at least 40%. Okay, it might be only because I am out of practice, but I beleave that at least 20% is because it so much easier/faster to work with Linux. – Just think of the console, Eclipse speed, and no reboot
Now as so many of my friends raved about the Apples, I’ll give it a try.
The MacBook with its small and firm design caught me. My first thought was, it would be perfect for photo companion, and it could help me out on trips as a replacement for my desktop developer machine running Eclipse and other Java stuff.
So here am I, today with a borrowed MacBook and ready for adventure.
If you’re interested in how an Ubuntu guy can cope with the Apples, stay tuned.
I’ve been playing with LensBaby 2.0 a bit.
I don’t know how, but all of my LensBaby pictures are soooo spooky. I like it. But, khm… Is that something wrong with my brain?!
If you’re serious about photography and you own a dSLR, you probably shoot all your photos in RAW quality. As RAW contains much more information than a simple jpeg or tiff, you need to process it. And that processing is essential step, so you need a good software for it.
Under Linux you’re somewhat limited, but only in quantity… You might be missing Adobe LightRoom, or CaptureOne, or whatever. – Do not forget you still can run a Windows inside of your Linux with VirtualBox or vmware, if you’re addicted to some of those software.
After a lots of post processing, I’m glad to present to you The Ladies and The Hair Dresses
New macros, for insect lovers…
Oh, oh, I’m getting soooo excited! Bibble 5 from BibbleLabs is comming soon… – well… not that soon…
There is a sneak peak page at BibbleLabs with screen shots!
It looks like the user interface will get much better, – it looks really similar to LightZone – and if you take closer view… we might even get versions?!
The other thing you can notice on the second screenshot is layers, select tool…
One plus screen shot in the forum…
I just can’t wait to put my hands on it.
Go Bibble, goooo!
