In the lower part of the "save" popup you should see a drop down options for saving to tiff, both with and without compression.

keyboard cloning controls?

Am using HF6 on a Mac, and with previous HF version I could press the option key to reset the cloning source. Very handy with difficult clones. With HF6 is there any way to reset the source other than hitting the brush button over and over with the cursor?

small mushroom, 74 image stack

This mushroom is about 20mm across, captured in a stack of 74 images. There was a bit of retouching needed where the software got confused, and some depth blur needed details cloned back in. But otherwise was fairly easily. Final processing was in Lightroom 4.0. Gear: Olympus e-510, 50mm macro with ...

Re: Macro lens question

The answer will depends on your intended use. More focusing steps allow for finer adjustment, but sometimes with larger subjects, a direct-coupled lens is best. My experience is limited to 1.0x (1:1) magnification, but often I feel that with some lenses the fine focus adjustment is too fine. Much mo...

Re: Moving camera vs lens focus change

One consideration is that with a rail one is limited by its length. That can be an asset or a hindrance, I guess, but my case I've often included infinity, or large objects, in my compositions. Stacking works very well across the whole range of a lens' focus, if needed. My cameras don't allow for re...

Re: Retouch redo function

Okay, thanks, Stas. I realize there's only so far you can take an older computer. My current solution is to take better photographs, and to be patient as the cpu does its work. Retouching a stack of 50 last night went okay.

Retouch redo function

I'm a new user of the pro version and am on an old mac G4 power book with 758 mb of ram. Though some of the HF functions are slow-ish, the speed is okay, surprisingly fast even, at 1000 mhz. Except for retouching. As the number of "undo" steps increases, undo becomes painfully slow. By 10K steps, un...
