  • I shot jpg for about a year when I first got a DSLR. Mainly because I viewed conversion as more work. After screwing up some settings and getting lots of grief trying to process blue images I ...
  • I use Photoshop a lot, but not just for photography. I make posters, signs for my business, logos, illustrations, and other things for websites. I used to use GIMP, but I find Photoshop to be much ...
  • I got a Kirk L-bracket for my camera. I used the allen wrench that came with it to attach it to the camera. I suspect the allen wrench is now in my collection of random allen wrenches but I don't ...
  • I just checked with a photo I took a couple days ago. I had imported the photo into LR but hadn't done any editing. I looked at the .xmp file (I have LR generate sidecar files at import time). It ...
  • I disagree. Paper prints are the only photographs that have lasted 150 years or more. Stating that the future is purely digital is predicting the future, a notoriously imprecise exercise. As far as ...
  • Replied in It is not dpr
    I do this periodically. I generally delete or disable any add-on that I don't recognize. One of my computer gripes is unknown processes. On Windows, if you look at all the programs installed on ...
  • Replied in lightroom?
    On my version (LR5.5) if you are in the develop module, go to "Camera Calibration" and at the top of the panel there is a way to select the processing used by LR. Default is 2012 (current) ...
  • I signed up a while back and I'm generally happy with it. I get the latest updates as they occur. I use LR whenever I take any pictures (RAW only) and I use PS at least two or three times a month. ...
  • One of the things I'd like to see in future cameras is a two-button reset that would restore user settings, analogous to (but separate from) the two-button reset to factory settings. An additional ...
  • I have a D4 and a D800E. I'm pretty happy with them so I'm not planning to update soon unless some disaster befalls them. However, there are some missing features I just might consider an update for. ...
  • I believe that has always been the case. Even pre-internet, mail order purchases were taxable in the state received (at least for states I'm familiar with). An out-of-state seller was not ...
  • Don't know how to do it automatically, but getting to full screen in PS is easy. Doesn't involve actions or things like that. Ctrl-0 (zero) goes to full screen. Ctrl-1 goes to 100% That's on ...
  • Replied in Slideshow Bob
    Never tried that, but I think Microsoft Movie Maker will do the slide moving and zooming. You can add text boxes with Photoshop or GIMP. If you're using MAC, I can't advise you.
  • Not much into video. I'd buy the D810 (or possibly another model) if it had: Bracketing for focus. Would help focus stacking. The ability to store user settings in camera and restore them by a ...
  • I recommend you learn Photoshop, but not use it to replace Lightroom. Lightroom is great for keeping track of your stuff via the catalog. PS doesn't have that capability, although Bridge (which ...
  • Hard disks are cheap. Clone another and send it to a relative. No annual fee. People generally keep track of relatives, so they are not likely to drop out of sight with your stuff. A terabyte on ...
  • I got it a couple days ago. I like the look better than the previous version, but I'm bummed that a lot of features have disappeared. If they haven't disappeared, the interface has been changed so ...
  • There's a classic definition of "enough". It's "just a little bit more".
  • There was a discussion on ADL on flickr a few years ago. Middle of the thread is at https://www.flickr.com/groups/nikondigital/discuss/72157623298578772/72157623326589662/ Point 1: ADL has to be ...
  • Replied in IrfanView
    I don't remember when I started using IrfanView. Sometime in the mid-90's, I'd guess. I find it excessively useful. It's fast, so it's my default viewer for any jpg/tif/gif/mpg etc. You don't ...
