About me:

I have been actively involved in all aspects of digital photography for the past 25 years. Used Photostyler before Adobe bought them out and came out with Photoshop 2.5 for the PC (now use PS CC 2018). I currently use the Nikon D810 and D7200 (wife's) with the Nikon 14-24mmf2.8, Nikon f2.8 24-70, Nikon 12-24 f4, Nikon 50mm f1.8, Nikon 16-80mm f2.8-4, Nikon 70-200mm VR f2.8, Nikon 300mm f4, Nikon 105mm VR, as well as a Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro and Tamro 2.8 28-75. . . and others. I change lenses often. Induro 3 section carbon tripod coupled with a Kirk head. Epson 3880 and 2880 (wife's), and a wide format Epson 7900. Flash is Nikon SB800 and Sigma EF500 with 5' umbrellas in the field, etc. Studio units are Elinchrome 1200 ws with 3' x 4' soft boxes.

I am an over-the-hill, retired photography instructor (MS in Photography from Brooks Institute). I no longer do corporate reports, weddings, portraits, stock photos, catalogues, or submit to magazines. I just shoot for FUN! (http//www.dustylens.com) (http//www.ghost-town-photography.com)
For this reason the nature of my work has changed. It no longer appeals to the average person. Some hate it. Some love it. It matters not. Even as I review my own work I can see some photos are very weak - and some are excellent. Funny thing is, few people agree with me on which is which!!! And that`s good.

  • Well Adobe insisted I have Windows 10, so I installed it today. Took an hour+, and even then I had to restart my computer AGAIN. Now it is very fast. I shall return in a day or two after I try ...
  • Agreed . . . that's why I waited soooo VERY long before upgrading to 10. Works great now.
  • Just installed Microsoft Windows 10 (today - and free). I had Vista 7. No problem once I closed down the PC and restarted it - again . Very quick. Before I restarted the computer google was VERY, ...
  • Thanks, Tootsall. Still looking. The ones I want require Chrome . . . which is a pain for me. Currently looking at Adobe.
  • Thanks, Andy (and others). Maybe this weekend I will start with Adobe.

    No problem - and thank you. As a pro shooting commercially for some 40 years and as a photo  teacher of some 33 of those I shoot raw  . . . ever since digital became widely acceptable. It is ...

    Your card came out it in June of 2013 - over 5 years ago. It is 2 gb. Time to upgrade! There is a good chance it is no longer supported or upgraded for new software. This could mean that the ...
  • It might even be something as simple as updating the GPU software. It happens when new software is introduced! For whatever its worth, I use the EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti which had the drivers ...
  • But, perhaps the graphic card needs to be modified by the mfg software to accept the newest version of CC 2019? Perhaps it has already?
  • I agree. However, perhaps we can work around Adobe? At one time I had to suggest to Adobe tech support a solution! Honest. Very disconcerting.
  • I use sleep mode with CC 2019 - on a PC - with no problems. Maybe we can work through it. I am no computer expert any more! :) However, I have a few simple ideas. Now many mb is your graphic card? ...
  • Although use CC 2018 almost exclusively, it is no place for a beginner. Instead, let me suggest PS Elements. Adobe Photoshop Elements is a raster graphics editor for entry-level photographers, ...

    I really don't need insults, AlexeyD. Please take the time to read my bio for a little more understanding.
  • I am still having a great deal of trouble signing into flicker! I am pretty good at following directions but I am using Netscape. Seems like I had signed in many years ago, except using my current ...

    I was shooting for national publication. Many others had this same problem. I was not alone.
  • Just looked into it. 50 mb for $2 a month. I need much more - like 1 gb!
  • I will look at it. Thanks.
  • Ha ha. Perpendicular is exactly 90 degrees from parallel. Simple geometry definition. Funny.
