Struggling with new photography software

Vince has been working on a new photo programme which allows you to create a photo which stands out from the page and looks a little like a 3D image. I’ve used an example for this discussion. It has taken him ages to work it out and has involved a certain amount of bad language but it seems he has now got the hang of it although it still needs a bit more refinement. The two riders are husband-and-wife endurance riders and on this day they were on their way to completing an 80-kilometre ride. Do you like the 3D effect?

Wow, good job. That must be so interesting to see the original and then the 3D version of it. I love these aspects of technology, and a little cussing won't kill anyone along the way.

He had so much trouble with it but eventually he worked it out. It's quite a nice effect I think.

@JudyEv Oh yeah, I do like it. Well worth the effort, compliment him for me on it.

Yes, the 3D effect looks good. I wonder what kind of shoes the horses have got on.

A lot of the endurance riders, including these people, now use pull-on boots rather than having iron shoes nailed onto the hooves.

@JudyEv Aha. Because it's cheaper, less effort for a smith or better for the horses' hooves?

@MALUSE All of those I think. The boots are expensive but last a long time whereas a good blacksmith is also expensive and an ongoing expense. Occasionally one of the rubber ones will come off and if you don't notice it missing then you either have to go back for it or buy anothe rat a later date. If you lose one and can't find it it usually puts you out of the ride unless someone can lend you one for the day. Iron shoes sometimes come off on a ride and not too many are able to shoe their own horses so that is another problem.

Yes, he is a bit quicker each time and there is a bit less swearing so that must be a good sign.

@JudyEv When my husband does our taxes, he does a fine bit of low-volume swearing.

@Corbin5 It must make the task go faster or be less onerous or something.

He did a good job, those programmes are not easy to master and it takes a lot of time to have a perfect picture.

Some photos are easier to do than others so he is learning a lot of stuff as he goes along.

@JudyEv I have very little patience, so when something requires too much time, I usually abandon the project.

@LadyDuck I don't know whether to call Vince determined or stubborn? Which word do you think fits best?

It's a nice effect for some photos. It is quite a complex process but each time is a bit quicker with a bit less profanity!

I can understand how learning to use a new software can be frustrating. It can take a lot of time before you start making beautiful images like that one.

He would get a little way then do something wrong and have to start again. Several times he went off and did something else for a while but then he'd come back and try again.

I have a dodgy eye and can't see any 3D effect at all. I have enough trouble just working with Photoshop elements, so I won't be playing with anything more complicated

It's really only a little bit 3D but the process has potential.

It really does pop, and the picture is quite colorful.

I think this would be considered pretty simple 3D stuff although it impresses me.

Listening to the tutorial (over and over and over ) it did sound very complex. And if you got a step wrong it seemed there was no way out but to go back to the beginning and start again.

I love 3D. I used to want a 3D printer so I could make 3D things. New software can be tricky. I am glad he got the hang of it.
