About me:

My DPR stats seem to have been clobbered at some point. I have LOTS more posts, comments, likes, etc., then are being shown.

Carey Brown's recent activity

  • Not just a CS3 issue. I had the same problem with CS6. I had to replace my motherboard and the activation was lost. I had to badger customer support to get a resolution but if they're retiring the ...
  • I'd say the "video" is quite nice, the  audio is a different story. I can hear the sound of the the mechanism in my image stabilized lens through the camera's mic.  I ended up getting a Tascam ...
  • If you don't mind slow then your machine should work for high MP photos. You can also use it for basic video editing. Video playback might stutter but this won't affect the file processing. Forget 4K.
  • An advantage of using LR for geotagging is LR's ability to display the coordinates on a built in map. You can also add geotaggs by just dragging-and-dropping the photos onto the map.
  • I've used Exiftool for lots of things but not geotagging. What is your work flow? What source file do you use for the coordinates? Will it tag based on timestamp? Nearest timestamp? Will it embed ...
  • This config is "ok" for high MP photos but would be slow. Working with video would be painful and working with 4K would probably be out of the question. You'll want an i7, perhaps a i7-7700. 16MB ...
  • More pixels, more better.
  • On new machines that come with an SSD it is almost guaranteed to be configured as the C: drive. If you also have a HDD, that usually gets configured as D:. An SSD + a HDD is the go-to ...
  • Without overclock you wouldn't *need* water cooling but it makes for a much quieter system. Also, without overclocking the chip has a turbo mode that it can go into briefly when there's an ...
  • Yes, Windows 10 does a fair amount of scaling, but if you are running some slightly older software it may still not scale. I'm currently running Photoshop CS6 and it does not scale. Because of ...
  • Almost all those files are in the Preview folder which doesn't need to be backed up because it can always be re-generated.
  • Still plenty happy with it.
  • I owned one a few years ago. I purchased it to meter flash. I ran into a problem though, with Canon's flashes - there is a very low flash output first (I think this was for auto focus if I ...
  • Not true. I sort mine by file name. If the file name began with the SD card name it would then be sorted by SD.
  • How is the computer+software supposed to detect SD card is "A" vs "B"? Do you have control over the SD card volume title?
  • There is a standard EXIF/IPTC field called rating (1-5). Because you can't modify a raw file these should be stored in a companion XMP  file. For JPG files this tag can be written out to the JPG ...
  • I thought of Faststone too but I know that Faststone will not write grades (rating) back out to the hard drive but instead keeps it in their proprietary database. For culling it should be good. Wha ...
  • I make extensive use of hierarchical (trees of) keywords in LR. LR hierarchical keywords are not standard metadata, so XMP and JPG metadata may or may not be readable by other programs. Does ...
  • I bought into Adobe when they went to CS. Prior to that I was using Paint Shop Pro. I went with Adobe because they had a proven track record and it seemed like they were a company that was going ...
  • Are you sure about this? I believe that LR locks you out of the Develop module if you cancel. I would suspect some similar behavior with Photoshop.
