I've just discovered this useful-looking photo editor.

on-line editor

You have to register first. Looks useful if you don't have any other form of editor. I believe it is pixlr.

35 more editors, some just for fun but a few are worth looking at.

I still wonder whether there is a call for a Photography / Photographer's forum! I don't mean for pictures but for sharing useful information such as this or for posting queries.

I think that it is relevant given that Corfu and Greece in general is so photogenic.

Any thoughts?

Would that not come under the umbrella of the "Technology" forum?

I don't think so, really. It's very specific.

Perhaps "Art Forum" or "Artistry Forum" or a more generic term but also open would be better. I mean if it was something like say "Creativity Forum" for example, then that could encompass photography, painting, drawing, handicrafts, etc and not be limited to just photographs.

Would you limit it to just that of Greece? - kind of a stupid question but it being a mainly Corfu based forum it does beg the question.

It's amazing how a thread can take on a life of its own  :) :)

AC's comment about expanding it to include various art forms is great and certainly worth considering.

I think what Bob was suggesting was something more specific about photography - technical and art. I would be very happy to contribute to that.

On an aside, I'm planning a "Mastering Digital Photography" course in the new year as something for photographers to do through the dark winter months. It's been delayed for a while (I intended to start it in December) as fate has overtaken me and my computer is in for a repair job.  At the moment it is planned to hold it in Doukadis, but also at other locations if there is a demand.  Anyone interested please PM me.

Were we to do this, I think that I would keep it to all matters photographic. If there is a call for a forum on specific art forms, they would of course be considered in their own right.

I do feel that so many could benefit from specific discussions on photography as almost everyone involves themselves in it in one way or another. Just look what the advent of mobile phones incorporating mega-pixel camera's has done.

I do feel that so many of us have access to cameras of one sort or another that many could benefit from the sort of help or guidance they might get on a forum such as this. My reasoning is that they are more likely to feel comfortable asking questions amongst people with whom they are familiar.

I belong to many groups that are technology and photographic related and sometimes I truly flinch when a novice user asks a question that  results in them being belittled by so-called experts who are so far up their own backsides! I am confident that this would not occur here!

What I have found in the past to be generally missing, is some kind of guide for mobile phone photography. Before that statement is pooh-poohed, the times they have a-changed and modern mobile phones can now come with photography apps that are as fully functional as a decent DSLR in what they can do. Many more people possess and use a mobile phone with a built in camera than carry around dedicated cameras. Unfortunately many of those people don't know how to get the best out of their phone cameras.

Obviously the mobile phones lack certain features, but just look a the Nokia Lumia 1020 mobile phone which comes with a whopping 41Mp camera. That's better than most "affordable" digital cameras your average holidaymaker will possess.

As for the apps to make them work, well other than the basic point and shoot app default with most mobile phones you can also get apps which are fully functional and which can perform various specialised shots.

I have found the following guide quite helpful. Although it is based on the Windows Nokia Lumia mobile phones, the general overview could apply to many other camera phones.

AC,

This is part of my argument. I think that it is essential for people to make the most of what they have available in the hope that they become further interested and will then hopefully expand their interest into an absorbing hobby.

I think what Bob is suggesting is a forum where the artistic and technical aspects of photography can be discussed. These can be applied to any format camera from mobile phone to large format camera.

Quoting Bob,

"I belong to many groups that are technology and photographic related and sometimes I truly flinch when a novice user asks a question that  results in them being belittled by so-called experts who are so far up their own backsides! I am confident that this would not occur here!"

--hear, hear!

A separate forum would be helpful as the photographic info would be concentrated in one place where it would be easier to find it when the need arose for that "tip" one had read about a few months ago.

Here's my two cents -  Best advice I ever got  from a photographer. He said "The best way to get a good photograph is to get close. And then get closer".  It works for me. 
VINI  VIDI  VISA.  I came,  I saw,  I did a little shopping.
