    Indeed - the main reason I have posted a few scans of my prints is for that very reason: so people can see what I do. If they elicit any considered comments on how I could perhaps improve them, that is a bonus (and on at least one occasion such suggestions have added to my arsenal of tricks).

    However, as already mentioned by others, there are a multitude of reasons why people do not post images. No conclusions should be drawn from the fact.

    Cheers, Bob.

    P.S. - I thought Members could not see the full Gallery?

    I have yet to produce a scan of any of my photos that doesn't look really bad once on the site.

    Getting a new scanner in the near future - so we'll see. Current scanner is coal fired.

    HI Ray. Good question. I think most here see this a primarily a discussion forum, and as some have pointed out, they are struggling with the process of getting image up, for various reasons. I would post more myself, but I have maxed out the disk space I am allowed, and I am not wanting to remove some of my images just yet.

    I agree, "Post more images" There is a lot of knowledge here but a fear to show. I don't understand it. We are a visual medium after all. So proof is in the print/image !.
    Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!

    Yes, please post more pics. After all a picture is worth 10,000 words and tells a lot about what the photographer is all about. In my opinion the image is what is important, not technical print perfection.

    I really enjoy the galleries here. Even if the scans are not top notch (most actually are), it's interesting to see what interests other members photographically. Some have pretty unique visions, some are specialists, others, like me take pics of everything that is of interest. Which in my case, is anything and everything. So post pics AND get in on the print exchanges. I've been hesitant about the print exchanges but I'm going to take my own advice and plan on joining up on the next round.

    I really like looking at the galleries and, as someone who is more enthusiastic than gifted, I'm sure I could gain much useful critique in posting some pics. However... I just can't get a worthwhile scan to upload. It might be because my scanner is not up to it, or i need to spend some more time learning to use it properly, but to spend £150 or so on a scanner, or £150 on a rodagon lens...No contest!

    Quinten,

    You should be able to find those drivers on the respective websites for the companies under their support area and if not there, then you should be able to find them by doing a google search for drivers, there are hundreds of websites that post driver downloads all the time.

    Some of us don't have scanners & don't want to get one. Some, like me, have one, but don't know how to get the best out of it & really couldn't care less about figuring it out. I'm always leary about putting scans of prints in my gallery because the online quality is always very disappointing.

    Oh yeah, where are yours?

    I've wanted to put some photos in my gallery, but have also been deterred by the poor quality I'm getting in the attempt. I'm not very good at scanning and the subsequent adjustments that must be made to make them look like the opriinals. But sometimes I think this may just be an excuse-some of the images in the gallery are great, is it because they are better to start with or because the photographer is better at processing the scans?
