New Sony A850 and A900

The Sony A850 and A900 are full frame cameras that pack in 24.6-megapixels on that big sensor.  The cameras appear at the top-end of the Alpha system line up.  At first blush, the A850 appears almost identical to the pricier Sony A900.  After delving deeper into the A850, you’ll discover that there’s really not a whole lot of difference between it and the A900.
Because of the similarities between these two cameras and the fact that I reviewed them simultaneous, I decided to publish one review for both cameras rather than than two separate reviews with only minor changes in the text.

Sony A850 and A900 Key Differences
The differences between the A850 and A900 are so minor that it seems hard to justify the purchase of an A900 over the A850, given the $700 price discrepancy.  The A850′s frame rate covers 3 fps, compared to 5 fps on the A900.  Additionally, the A850 viewfinder coverage is 98% of the frame, compared to 100% coverage from the A900.  Finally, the A900 includes a wireless remote, which is an excellent option; however, those who opt for the A850 can take some of that $700 they save to purchase the same remote for $30.

The A850 and A900 have a great auto-focus system inside.  You get 9 AF points, which can be selected by the user.  The center AF point is center dual cross type for extra sensitivity.  There are also 10 assist AF points.
The focus speed is quick and accurate on both cameras – even in low light.  If you’ve read Photography Bay for a while, then you know that I like to use a single focus point, selecting individual points as necessary depending on the composition.  Adjusting focus points is straightforward and easy with the joystick.  As noted earlier though, if you like to change focus areas (e.g., Wide AF area, Spot AF area, etc.), then you’ll have to jump back to the quick menu.
My main gripe with the AF system is frame coverage.  Nothing in this class of cameras stacks up to the frame coverage on the Nikon D700.  While I’ll equate the speed of the AF system of the Sony cameras to the D700, the frame coverage and focus point options just don’t stack up for the A850 and A900.  As a result, I end up with a lot of “focus and recompose” shooting.

Image Quality

With 24.6-megapixel, the A850 and A900 deliver in the resolution department.  Files from the Alpha cameras are 6048 x 4032 pixels in size.  With resolution like that, you can take advantage of the cropping space.
The color reproduction is solid straight out of the camera.  I really like the results from the A850 and A900 – in good light.
In lower light, if you bump the ISO speed, then you can get in trouble pretty quick.  The 5D Mark II and D700 easily have a stop or two advantage over the A900 and A850.  Shooting over ISO 1600 would be ill-advised for the Sony DSLRs.
Previously, I published an ISO comparison for the A850 and A900, along with the 5D Mark II and 7D.  Below is a short sample taken from a 100% crop of the test scene.

Neat Image

This component is especially strong in images taken at high ISO/ASA rates. The noise reduces the visual quality of digital images and resulting printouts. Some image processing operations, like sharpening, make quality of noisy images even worse.

· Premium Noise Reduction and Image Sharpening
· Advanced Noise Filter to reduce noise and grain in digital images
· Neat Image incorporates the most advanced noise reduction algorithms in the industry that surpass the quality of all classic noise reduction methods and even that of the wavelet-based methods. Although the wavelet-based methods were developed only 10-15 years ago and still considered relatively modern, Neat Image uses an even newer and more efficient approach to noise reduction. This approach enables drawing a more clear distinction between noise and details in noisy images. This helps Neat Image reduce more noise and better preserve true image details in digital photos and scans.
· Complete control over the noise filter to achieve desired level of noise reduction
· Neat Image provides direct access to virtually all important noise filter settings. For every channel component and spatial frequency component of input image, you can adjust the noise level estimation and specify how much of the detected noise must be removed. Default filter settings work very well and if you want to tweak filter then the complete control is under your tips.
· Smart Sharpening Filter to make images look sharper without amplification of noise
· Neat Image includes an intelligent sharpening filter. Working together with the noise filter, the sharpening filter makes the image look sharper without any degradation of image quality (which is usually inevitable with noisy images). Neat Image sharpening has a halo-free mode.
· 16-bit image support to fully utilize capabilities of modern image acquisition devices
· The professional editions of Neat Image fully support 48-bit RGB and 16-bit grayscale images. This capability complements the recent advances in both hardware and software technologies (for example, Photoshop CS2 / CS) used in professional digital imaging.
· Photoshop plug-in and standalone application
· Photoshop-compatible plug-in to integrate Neat Image noise reduction in Photoshop-based workflow
· Using Neat Image plugin in the convenient environment of Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements, or another compatible editor) you can apply noise reduction exactly where it is required: in a layer, channel or selection. Using Photoshop selection tools, you can apply noise reduction with different strength to different parts of the image. You can use Neat Image plug-in as a smart filter in Photoshop CS3.

Photoshop Toolbox

The toolbox contains 28 icons and around 60 tools, and it can seem bewildering if you're not used to it. Never fear — it all starts to make sense once you get to know your way around the various tools, and understand how they're grouped together.

This tutorial gets you up to speed with the Photoshop toolbox, and each of the tools it contains. By the time you've finished reading it, you'll be well on your way to working proficiently with the Photoshop toolbox, and you'll have a good general understanding of all the tools in Photoshop too.

The toolbox

The screenshot below shows the toolbox in Photoshop CS3. (Other versions may differ slightly, but the basic tool layout is the same across all versions.)
  • Click a tool icon or name in the image below to find out more about that tool.
  • Most of the tool icons actually represent a group of related tools. A little black triangle in the bottom right corner of an icon signifies a tool group. When you click a tool group's icon in the image below, you can read descriptions of all the tools in the group.
  • All tools have shortcut keys so you can select them quickly. You can see the shortcut key for a tool by hovering the mouse over it in the image below. (This also works in the toolbox in Photoshop itself.) I've also included the shortcut keys in the headings for each tool — or tool group — description.
  • To quickly cycle through the tools in a tool group, hold down Shift while pressing the shortcut key.

The following sections give you a brief description of each of the tools in the Photoshop toolbox. Some of the descriptions include links to other articles where you can find out more about the

Studio Background PSD Files

More Studio Backgrounds are available now

Photoshop format (PSD) is the default file format and the only format, besides the Large Document Format (PSB), that supports most Photoshop features. Because of the tight integration between Adobe products, other Adobe applications such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects, and Adobe GoLive can directly import PSD files and preserve many Photoshop features. For more information, see Help for the specific Adobe applications.

When saving a PSD, you can set a preference to maximize file compatibility. This saves a composite version of a layered image in the file so it can be read by other applications, including previous versions of Photoshop. It also maintains the appearance of blended layers in the future.

New photoshop Cs5

Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended


Photoshop turned twenty years old this year. That may seem like nothin' but a number, but when you look at the Mac platforms it's migrated to and from, and the fact that it's had 12 versions, Photoshop's twenty years have seen a lot of changes for one application. From System 6 on the Motorola 68000, it was then ported to PowerPC, then to OS X, then to OS X Intel, and now to Cocoa and 64-bit. All this while adding the features that make it the meaty image editor it is today. One look at the laundry list of major additions in CS5 makes it clear that Adobe isn't anywhere near done with the product. The new feature list is unrelenting:
  • Wet media brushes
  • Content-aware fill and heal tools
  • Improved masking/chroma keying
  • Camera RAW 6
  • Puppet Warp
  • Mini Bridge
  • Data-based lens distortion correction with custom lens profiling application
  • Local adaptation tone-mapping
  • Faster realtime 3D engine
  • Repoussé 3D features and HDR image-based lighting
  • New floating color picker and eyedropper
Of course, all of these features also appear in the Windows version, which has had 32- and 64-bit flavors since version CS4. Let's not forget that Windows 7 just came out as well, so Adobe's had its work cut out for it with this latest installment. I've been working with the betas and the release for a while now, so let's see how it all worked out.

Top five image editing software......

1. Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is the winner by a landslide, garnering over half of all the total votes.
Photoshop is what comes to mind when image editing is involved there’s very little that can be said about it that hasn’t been said already.
The license to distribute the program was purchased by Adobe Systems in September 1988.
Photoshop has 15 versions........

2.GIMP Software

GIMP has a huge set of retouching tools that will allow you to perform advanced image retouching and manipulation. The GIMP outputs your work in many common formats like JPG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, and even PSD (Photoshop’s native file format).
GIMP is a popular open-source image editor. Often lauded as the "free Photoshop," it has an interface and features similar to Photoshop. Image Manipulation Program. It is free software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and authoring.


Fireworks is also a similar software as Photoshop.    It excels in several areas over its big brother Photoshop, namely in high-fidelity prototyping of sites and a workspace environment that’s optimized for web designers. It is also a raster and vector hybrid, being able to work with raster-based images and vector-based graphics better and more symbiotically than Photoshop.


Inkscape 0.48 now has a preference that allows users to take advantage of multi-threading for the Gaussian Blur filter. This filter makes one of the biggest impacts on Inkscape's performance when in use. Mariana Sing uses blur throughout this image for subtle details, smooth color transitions, and numerous effects. Thankfully the blur operation is now faster than before when using a multi-core or multi-processor computer.


Pixelmator 1.6.4 is first in the world to add a new JPEG compression/decompression engine, called the libjpeg-turbo. JPEG Turbo, as we named it, brings 2x faster JPEG compression via Pixelmator’s Export for Web feature. Remember, Pixelmator has a real-time preview for optimizing images or slices for the Web, so JPEG Turbo makes that preview even more instant.

Create action

An action is a series of commands that you play back on a single file or a batch of files.
For example, you can create an action that applies an Image Size command to change an image to a specific size in pixels, followed by an Unsharp Mask filter that resharpens the detail, and a Save command that saves the file in the desired format.
Most commands and tool operations are recordable in actions. Actions can include stops that let you perform tasks that cannot be recorded (for example, using a painting tool).
Actions can also include modal controls that let you enter values in a dialog box while playing an action.

To use the Actions palette
You use the Actions palette to record, play, edit, and delete individual actions. This palette also lets you save and load action files.

Photoshop Actions palette

A. Action set
B. Action
C. Recorded commands
D. Excluded command
E. Modal control (toggles on or off) 
To display the Actions palette, choose Window > Actions.
To expand and collapse sets, actions, and commands, click the triangle to the left of the set, action, or command in the Actions palette. Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) the triangle to expand or collapse all actions in a set or all commands in an action.
To display actions as buttons (Photoshop), choose Button Mode from the Actions palette menu. Choose Button Mode again to return to list mode. You can’t view individual commands or sets in Button mode.
To select actions in the Action palette, click an action name. In Photoshop, Shift-click action names to select multiple, contiguous actions and Ctrl-click (Windows) or Command-click (Mac OS) action names to select multiple, discontiguous actions.

Action palette looks like this....

Photoshop actions can make your life much easier if you know how to use them.
There are many free Photoshop actions on the internet today and we will learn how to make our own actions instead of doing the sameboring work repeatedly.
