    doesn't matter what software you use if you can set a custom white balance in your camera. As the other guys have said, you need a reference white or grey (18%) card and then you're all set. But if you add more lights later or make other changes, you need to re-calibrate.

    Its a 2 minute process.

    You need a white balance card for that. The gray card is for determining exposure.

    I only run pics through Photoshop when I need to do a batch resize when I forget to switch my camera setting back to 2.1MP.

    Hah! The ever-present orange bow tie - perfect. Like your new logo as well - very clean and fits your store look & feel. Wes stands for "With Exceptional Service." If your wife is named Pam, I'd freak.

    Am I the only one who has noticed a pattern....[​IMG]

    Also, @jebarne is the first package I have ever received that had a sticker on the outside above the address label with his business name and website. Well done!

    This is a common scam. They'll send you a fake PayPal payment receipt email. Always check your funds before you ship, or make sure payment is received on eBay.

    My niece called me her "favorite drunkle" from an early age and no one ever corrected her...and it stuck.

    I figured it should be featured, I get so many requests to purchase it. Probably 2-3 a week during tweed season. Plus every time I scrolled down, I confused my cordovan avatar with Koala T's

    HUGE SHOUTOUT to Brian for helping me photoshop the orange bow tie into the logo.

    You and your word puzzles. I tell ya. My wife is Holly. My friends call her the Hollinator.

    Having an issue with a seller right now.

    I bought a pair of florsheim by DB navy wingtips that had laces and were advertized as such. I get them and find that they're the laceless version with elastic under the tongue and laces for show. Seller won't accept a return. I start a case and they have yet to respond.

    How should I do this?

    I wasn't looking for loafer-ish shoes. I wouldn't have bought them if that had been anywhere in the description.

    I am looking at Ebay, and I wonder, what should the shoulder measurement be compared to the measurement of my shoulders? I measured my shoulders edge to edge, but I believe that jackets measure from seam to seam.

    Florsheim x Duckie brown makes laceless wingtips.

    Here's a previous ebay listing for a similar pair:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Florsheim-by-Duckie-Brown-Laceless-Leathe-
    r-Wingtip-Oxfords-Navy-10-5-/161302813111

    I wouldn't have bought them if I had known they were the laceless option as they're built differently. Seller's claiming that it's just a tongue gusset, which in this case it's not.
