Introduction and Purpose

Post by marktownley »

Hi All.

At request I have created a new section of the forum. The idea being this is where people can share and discuss tips and techniques for improving our final images.

Similarly, if you have a 'how do I...' question this is the place for it to go.

It's very easy for posts like this to get lost in the main body of the forum and quickly drop down the post list becoming lost. Hopefully this sub section will stop that.

Hi Mark,

Interesting new forum. Now we just need some volunteers who start this forum or some volunteers who post their images and ask if there is room for improvement ...
