    At risk of sounding elitist, I don't think you guys really understand what cargo collective is. It's just an easy way to host online portfolios, it's not the next flickr/tumblr or whatever - I get that you guys are mostly kidding when you say that, but these sites aren't comparable as they serve completely different functions. Most of you don't have a real need for cargo collective. The whole point of the application/invite-only system is to keep people who just want to sign up all willy nilly from clogging up the site and it's community. It's not a photo sharing place where you can just dump whatever you feel like, these are meant to be polished portfolios.
    Yep. I understood this from the start.

    Why would anyone choose to pay tax if they don't have to? Especially on items that are hundreds of dollars, it adds so much cost.

    They dodged tax through legal means.

    Blame the government for being too lazy and incompetent to close legal tax dodging loopholes, while they taxed pasties on whether they're warm or not.

    Exactly, given the options I'm sure people will always choose to pay less. Once amazon charges tax I don't know what I'll do :(

    amazon still charges vat at 20% to you, but paid little corporation tax through very creative means

    That's a really great idea for getting more people into film.

    Also, I don't get the second pic.

    Edited:

    Looks like it accepts any phone.

    the little comic is supposed to be a humorous over-exaggeration of anger to the fact that the scanner is going to crop the scan of your negative.

    SpeedGrade is for grading, not color correcting. Open an Adjustment layer instead of linking between Premiere and SG.
    And yeah, due to SG not being originally an Adobe product, the interface isn't what you're used to. I assume we'll see it Adobe-like in CS7.

    I need a new computer and monitor setup, I'm using my netbook and it has a mild blue hue and 720p isn't enough definition so my sharpening is off sometimes. Are there monitors past 1080p other than macs? I really want to still use windows and have a good monitor. Just a pipe dream because I don't have money to fix my old PC, but I think it would be probably a better investment than any other stuff.

    I'm afraid that I can't help you as those are actual scratches and dust on the photos , I'm sure someone here knows how to.


    I'm sure I read that someone scans a black frame of film and overlays it on there photos which sounds like a way it might work.

    thanks anyways, i guess
    i'm pretty sure quite a few people here knows how it's done, so hopefully it's just a matter of time before someone comes along and will be able to teach me.

    That is a really sweet idea.

    Someone should take it to a club or an urbex evening and project images of ghosts without telling the other photographers.

    Yep, the best way is to scan a blank piece of film, and overlay it on top, with something like 50% opacity. I've never actually done it because my pictures naturally have them, being on film, but that should probably get you what you want.

    i don't have any blank pieces of film nor a scanner, so that's not really going to help me out.

    I'm very upset right now. We took second place in the PSA video contest. Sure we still won a $1500 grant for our school, but we won 1st place the past two years, and I was looking forward to have and extra $1200 in my pocket. :(
