I currently have PSP x2. Thinking of upgrading. Will I need to uninstall PSP x2 before installing the new version? Want to try and avoid any computer install issues. I'm using a Nikon D7000 and want to start shooting raw. --Cindy

Hi everyone. I would really appreciate some help. I recently bought a Pentax X5 camera after a frustrating experience with Panasonic TZ30. The problem is that zoom range during video shooting is only 7.2X and my feeling is that it is digital zoom, rather than optical zoom as image quality really deteriorates when you zoom. The zoom range starts at your initial zoom level and would go to 7.2X no matter what. I've looked at all the settings to see if I'm doing anything stupid but can't figure...

Today, I found my Sony DSC-H1 (2005) seems to have given up (hardly surprising).  Holding down the shutter button halfway to focus, it wouldn't focus anymore.  I doubt given its age, that it is worthwhile to have a camera store repair it.  It was only in the past couple years that I'd purchased the teleconverter lens for it ------- especially for bird photography which I really enjoy. Considering that it is good zoom that I need especially, and I'm not so sure I could handle the weight for a...

I am not sure this is the correct place for this question but, since it involves both PCs and Macs, I did not think the separate PC and Mac forums were the correct place. Many photo editors allow the user to install the software on two separate machines - usually a desktop and a laptop. I was wondering if that applied to two separate machines of which is a Mac and the other of which is a PC. Does anyone know about mixing PC/Mac licenses? As a separate question most photo editing software...

I have a DSC-W290 compact. I have taken some video with it and would like to download it to my computer for video editing with Corel Video Studio Pro X5. But X5 does not find the video data when I put the card into the reader. I can download photos, but not the video. What do I need to get the video footage into X5? Thanks, Robmac70

Hi, Camera: Fuji HS30 EXR Adobe Software: Lightroom 4.4, PS Elements 11, and ACR 7.4 Other software: SilkyPix and Paintshop Pro X5 OS: Win 7 Ultimate Shooting in RAW + JPEG. I open the files in LR 4 and the JPEG looks properly exposed while the RAF file is at least +2 stops overexposed. This is consistent with all of the RAF files viewed in LR 4 or PSE 11 using ACR 7.4. However, if I open the RAF file in SilkyPix or PSP X5 the RAF file looks properly exposed. I can correct the problem in LR 4...

Hi every one. I have been using Nikon View NX2 and Serif Photoplus X5 to do all of my PP. I have been thinking of getting some more PP software like Topaz Adjust and or DeNoise and have also been considering one of the Lightroom variants. I know Topaz Adjust will work as a plug-in with P/plus X5 because Serif have tried to sell it to me. Would I see a great advancement over what I already have with these options or can you kind people suggest any others I might consider. I am using Windows 7....

Hi! I want to upgrade from a simple point-and-shoot camera to a bridge camera (also called superzoom camera). I've found five possible candidates: the Fujifilm Finepix HS 30EXR, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150, the Nikon COOLPIX P510, the Panasonic Lumix FZ38 and the Pentax X-5. I'm here to ask you guys which camera you think would be best for me. What I want to do with the camera: shoot street fashion photography - this means that I would like to have a camera with a lens that has a possible...

Hi Can anyone please advise. The X5 magnification in the EVF lasts about two seconds before jumping back to normal view when focussing manually. This is hardly enough time to focus on a subject at all. How do I get the MF Assist X5 magnification to stay on longer. Thanks for any assistance. Sup Mylo

Hello, I am in the process of creating a book that about street artists. Because of the ephemeral nature of the work, we are relying on the artists to send pictures of their art. (the backstory) I was told by our editor that for printing purposes the photos need to be 300dpi. But many of the photographs the artists are sending are at 72 dpi. I am trying to figure out if they can be used in our book because they appear not to have a high enough resolution. I have done a little research but an...
