    What level of photo editing is too much?

    All good points. Photoshop is overkill for most well shot knife photos that just need a little tweak. (no software will save a poorly shot subject) I do most of my photo processing in Light Room. It is much more user friendly and intuitive. And this comes from someone who has PS in his job...

    What level of photo editing is too much?

    Good answers all. I'll add that good PS work is unnoticeable. Much like salt. If the meal tastes salty or the photo looks like it was beaten with the PS hammer it is too much. A little goes a long way. IMHO, an over PS'd image can sow the seed of distrust in the viewer...

    I got that too, today. The name was Dennis Adams. Trustingly (because it is knifedogs) I clicked on the link and then thought "OOOOOOH NOOOOO" So far so good. Thanks for looking out for us.

    How do I multi color sheaths

    I used a flat brush and a (semi) steady hand on these. Only dyed the edges on this one... These are two toned. The two toned sheaths were done with the lighter dye first. Then the darker dye. Darker will cover lighter, but not the other way around. The groove and indents from the...

    Anyone care to critique my maker's mark?

    Week 7 photo contest voting is CLOSED- Cell phone pics

    I voted for Pocketedge because the entire knife is in focus, evenly lit and well represented. It could've been a little higher in the frame, but that could be easily fixed with free cell phone software such as the photobucket or photoshop app.

    Week 8 Photo Submission thread CLOSED - Black and White...

    Snody Texas Hunter kit blade. :D The usual light tent shot. Converted to B&W with some grain/noise added because that's the way I like my B&W… gritty :)

    I've seen a bunch of Buddy's work and can emphatically say that he is not a one trick "knife on the table" pony.

    Anyone care to critique my maker's mark?

    Speaking as the full time graphic artist that I am… One of my favorite design sayings/philosophies is: "Less is more, more or less" The first half is so true, the second half means that rules of thumb (& thumbs) can be broken :) I'd lose the outline of the state… when reduced it'll get too...
