  • Created discussions Gallery question - am I dumb?
    Hi there.  I just can't figure something out about uploading a picture to My Gallery here in DPReview.  The maximum upload size is specified at no more than 20 mb, with a maximum of 30,000 pixels...

  • Never mind.  I found the answer right in front of me in System Preferences > Displays.  Duh.
  • Created discussions Dual Monitor question
    I'm working with two monitors for the first time, and I have a quick question.  My main monitor is directly in front of me, and the second monitor is to my left.  In order to get to that second...

  • Thanks for your help everyone, I really appreciate it.  New computer is on order - an iMac with every upgrade possible, except for that I bought the RAM from Crucial.  Interestingly, I get a 10%...

  • Created discussions Flirting with disaster
    This morning, I was walking down a sidewalk chasing after my 3-year old son, carrying my 5DIII. Attached to the camera was my 24-70 2.8 II, with the lens hood attached in ready-to-shoot mode. I...
