Light Machine is a photoshop plugin, it offers several features centered around a shadow/highlight control, it also includes a sort of colour replacement tool. While it works pretty well in practice, I have to say though I'm puzzled by the companies logic, all these features are already in photoshop, and to be honest personally I prefer the photoshop shadow/highlight tool.

I suspect this happens more frequently than you might think, but most people don't understand how the card actually works and they think they are gone for good.
In a way the cards a bit like a hard drive, when you delete or format a card you don't actually wipe the data off, what you are doing is removing the index that tells the computer whats there and where it is, so it cant see the data. Data recovery software (and there's lots of different ones) looks for the actual data rather than the index, it then re compiles a temporary index so it can "find" the pictures (or whatever) then it usually downloads them to a computer.
Last night I popped the memory card in my card reader, ran the software and Bob's your uncle! 465 recovered photos, the best part of 4 gb worth, there were about 4 corrupted pics, probably caused by overwriting at sometime or other, as the pics go back months, and probably several wipes.
I can't think of anything much lesss flatering than rolls of fat "chicken fillets" hanging over to top of the dress.
And why the low necklines? I wonder sometimes how the dresses stay on, if it wasn't for the constant pulling up many wouldn't, and theres a scary thought.
I want to make it clear here I have nothing against big people, I'm no racing snake myself, but come on ladies please buy a dress that compliments your figure, or at very least one that fits properly.

Last week Peters new series started (going it alone) however not to be outdone (as usual) Wealthy Katie made news (on the very same day) that she was a kidnap target for the Russian mafia! However she wasn't too worried as her new boyfriend Alex Reid a cage fighter would protect her.
A few points Katie, first off if you aren't worried why are you blabbing it all to the papers?
Second point kidnappers usually don't kidnap the person with the money, that makes it a bit tricky to get the ransom, they usually kidnap somebody close.
Third point, the Russin mafia gangs have taken on the police and even army in the past, I don't think a cage fighter is going to scare them off love, they tend to come in AK47's blazing, a bare knuckle fighters going to have his work cut out punching all those 7.62 x 39mm bullets.

The first question I had was wheres the memory card in my Canon camera, yep a tog with a Canon digital SLR actually didn't know where the memory card was, she always downloads via a usb cable, and I wanted the card to put her pics on a laptop. Problem solved!
Next question was I have deleted all my pics off the memory card HELP! (different person) I do have recovery software which should get the images back ok, she told me on the phone she hasn't re-used the card, which is good news (if you re-use the card it writes over the images and then your knackered) as shes away I can't be certain of recovery until I try but in the past I have managed to recover images without any problems. Result pending.
Last question was a good friend has got a Fee warning on a Nikon camera, this means a lens problem of some sort, sometimes it's the lens not at the smallest aperture, other times it's a dodgy contact or, heavens forbid a faulty lens. Result pending.

The biggest problem I had was space, there wasn't any, when I started to set up I was told I couldn't use the room I had planned to use, I ended up in a corridor by the ladies loo.... now why does that seem familiar?? Oh yes last week.
Not bad for shots in a small corridor I think. Wayne

Megrahi was freed on compassionate grounds today.
There have been questions since the bombing many claiming Megrahi wasn't responsible, among others Iran were suspected of involvement as a revenge attack for the shooting down of an Iranian airliner by a US navy ship a few months before. Another claimed the CIA might have been involved and that the aircraft had been used for smuggling drugs as part of a covert operation (there were 2 inteligence officers on board) another report suggested the Israeli intelligence service might have been involved.
Whatever the truth we should remember the tragic events of the day.
Heres another thing about socks.... why do the always come in packs of three or six? Theres seven days in the week, or there were before we went metric and I don't think it's changed, wouldn't seven pairs make more sense, one for each day.

This survey was carried out by the college of Optometrists (so no vested interested then lol) So ditch those cheapy boots sunglasses and nip out for a pair of Oakley Blades for the kids. Yes they will set you back a couple of hundred quid each, and yes they do offer the same protection as the boots ones, and yes there's no flipping sun here anyway, but the college of Optometrists will love you for it.
