  1. - update 1 - In my opinion: A. Leaf - a simple cutting B. Background - cutting and blending A sample created with Photoshop Transform tool from 6 selection > Scale, Rotate, Skew, Distort, Flip Horizontal and Flip Vertical. Here a sample created only with Warp tool (puppet ward later) + above. What it can do to a bubble, check this link
  2. Good day everyone! I’m giving a simple SOOC image for a new game. This image consists of 2 easy subjects, no property release issue. It is easier to cut, clone, texture or whatever your creativity excels with or without composite of your own image. Should be an ideal image for everyone to sharpen your digital art skill or advance skillful members to show your expertise. Up to you for safe keeping or submit commercially if you want to (no credit required). But........... Please share best creation for the contest here and participate to help fellow members. Closing date: One week. I hope everyone giving your part and participate to give some life to the forum.

    A Message to shutterstock staff.

    I do agree with you. 17 uploads - 13 rejected, 11 uploads - 10 rejected, 9 uploads all 9 rejected. And expected another 18 soon Thank you very much SS for waking me up my other dormant site now willing to accept the same 36 files + 10 new with 44 approved, 2 revision (with reviewer notes which part to clone) and 0 rejection. At least that give me some motivation from my 2018 spending of thousands on 2 new bodies, tons of accessories for camera and studio.

    Please do not spam-upload!

    4 or 5 almost identical is not a serious issue, how about few hundreds of identical at one go. Can anyone tell, is that SS accept batch of identical images for creating timelapse video?

    External storage device

    Summarizing from all helpful members sharing their gadgets, if I am not wrong Portable 2.5” HDD = 8 users incl. me NAS Storage = 4 users I think Steve using Workstation, HodagMedia using IBM. Workstation = 3 incl. me Docking Station = 2 users My conclusion Portable HDD the winner (What to expect selling 0.33 cents per pop unless SS could give a raise) For those with portable, armored casing HDD (Mil-Standard certified) is a very good suggestion from Rudy, still worth it with just a little bit extra of price. My hp too, in Spigen MIL-STD 810G 516.6 certified armored casing. It’s proven, fully tested! haha Laurin is not included in above summary. He has 4 PC on his working desk, 6 monitor viewing 180 degree panoramic framing, lol. No offend, my friend. Still confuse???

    Hitachi HSGT was claim to be the top HDD with lowest failure rates at the moment but review rank Seagate to be the No.2 (a brand i avoided at all cost). HSGT technologies is owned by Western Digital. Similar to WD, Hitachi HDD do have many grades, price and specification as confuse as Mil-Spec . Some Enterprise Grade is not HSGT. For my coming HDD upgrade, I will not hesitate to try it. The advantage as what claim is that HSGT HDD was internally filled with Helium. So, its lift up the engine weight by 30%, run fastest and heart kidney last longer. Mine old HDDs are running so hot, was thinking to fill it with nitrogen, maybe last few more year before HSGT should be cheaper by then .

    Mil-Specs is not BS maybe the marketing was. Here Mil-Std 300gb HDD So far I only found this item Silicon Power 2TB Type C External Hard Drive If component quality was in doubt, this one possessed MIL-STD- 810F. Could ask them to send copy of certified Certificate, I am sure they have it. It is a beautiful design and I think the sales Engineer graduates from Harvard University. Anyway, it does not ship to my country and I don't worry much MIL-STD- 810F is for external casing or hard drive , maybe I am wrong. No pun intended. You must be very experience with Loctite. It’s good? For industrial application, we don’t use it. Do you have any idea about Devcon International from ITW Polymers Adhesives, North America? Their product was quite good especially ceramic coating and putty. I heard they worked for military in specialize adhesive for a long time and involve with NASA space shuttle too, it is true?
