  • Much would depend on how the networked drive appears to the Mac. OSX native programs [iPhoto, Aperture] expect a unix-like file system and may not be happy putting their catalog on dos/windows...
  • It is likely that you are far from reaching the iPhoto's limits as an organizer, but there may be times you need to do more detailed editing than iPhoto's native capabilities. I believe that The...
  • Good thing my fingers know what to do without looking at the labels¬†;-) [last reply typed on an iPad]
  • Many Windows actions were copied from the Mac, with Windows using the 'control' key since PC keyboards lack a Mac style 'Option' key.¬† To select multiple items either Option click each item to add...
  • Added 3 photos to their gallery

  • I use an Olympus FL-36 - this is the same flash as the Panasonic FL360, just cheaper. Any flash compatible with four thirds, with through the lens metering will be suitable. Check the usual...

  • The price difference is mostly for the brand name, and is partially offset by the bundled software [I believe the Leica version bundles either LR or Elements]
  • You may need some experimentation - many cameras write both raw & jpeg versions of the image. If the raw file format is not recognized, iPhoto may simply import both and use the jpeg for the master...
  • It all depends on the capabilities of the lens - a non autofocus lens K mount lens won't do autofocus, and an old screw mount lens will only do 'stopped down' metering no matter what screw mount to...
  • Replied in viewing jpeg's
    You *don't* have a card reader?

  • I think the problem is that when you are 'copying' the image from the iPhoto GUI, what is copied is the preview JPEG that iPhoto generates from the raw file. [same action happens when you drag and...
  • The symptom you describe is Safari cashing [abend]. You can view the logs inside the 'settings' app. I have a first gen iPad with IOS 5.1 and Safari crashes often. You can install alternate...
  • Oops - just saw you already have Lightroom - the pro level apps [Lightroom & Aperture] offer many more bells & whistles than iPhoto, but the principals are the same [non destructive edits, never...
  • Stick around for a bit, and the next round of Lightroom vs Aperture 'discussion' will start. In the meantime, I would suggest getting started with the iPhoto application already on your Mac. It...
  • Since the message is from Lightroom - does the app have its own trash bin? [or are you referring to the system trash bin?]
  • Memory cards are formatted for re-use as soon as the first backup after import completes [Apple Time Machine]. If I'm away on a trip where I'm taking lots of photos, I tend to have a card for each...
  • Probably when the files were copied to the sd card, they were not in the 'dcim' directory hierarchy the same way [same 'place]' as they would be written by a camera. Common camera import actions...
