  • Another option you could look at is Reikan FoCal software. I used that very successfully with my Canon cameras and lenses. And it does all the work for you!
  • Google "Photoshop face explosion" and pick a tutorial from YouTube.
  • Very Old School. Many years ago I switched my Canon kit for Nikon kit based around the (film) Nikon F4. Brand spanking new features, all the latest hi-tech (for its time) and built like a tank. I ...
  • Not at all. My original point (further above) was to ensure that the backup copy was not on the same drive as the primary copy. Simple as that. No hammer of any kind was involved or implied. If you ...
  • Yup, you're right, it is semantics. I look at it from the perspective of running massive IT systems where the ability to recover mission-critical data is of paramount importance, to the point ...
  • OK, I didn't want to get into too much detail in the previous post, but let me clarify: what I meant was that Lr, by default, creates a copy of your catalog on the same drive and in the same folder ...
  • Based purely on the specs, your home computer should be faster than the work computer - faster processor, faster drive, more RAM and better GPU. The only downside is that 67Gb for the scratch disk ...
  • Did you use a remote shutter release? If you were pushing the shutter button, even on a tripod, with the aperture and shutter speed set for ambient light exposure, you could have introduced motion ...
  • When you say you "restored" your Windows 10 OS I assume you did that via a clean install which removed all the existing files, filesystems and data from your C drive. I am also assuming that your ...
  • Why? I don't see any advantage whatsoever in converting to dng unless you intend to use processing software that cannot read your original raw files. OK, on my 5DIV files it saves maybe 5Mb per ...
  • If you want detailed information on Lightroom settings, try The Lightroom Queen site. Loads of info there and forums for asking questions which will be responded to by Lightroom specialists.
  • Replied in Parameter 1
    I'm making a wild guess here since the info you are providing is not really adequate and I have never used a 5DIII, but I will guess that you have turned the control dial (on top of the camera) to ...
  • Replied in DNG Needed?
    You don't "install" .dng, it is simply a defined file format, in the same way that .nef, .tiff or .jpg are examples of file formats. What may be confusing you is Adobe's DNG converter software ...
  • Can you restore your folder from your backup which will have the original names? Would sorting the files by creation date (as opposed to the usual "last modified" date put them into order? Or ...
  • OK, I may have misunderstood your original query. I haven't found any actual RGB to Grayscale options in PL2 so the only thing I can think of (and it's clumsy) is to do your PL2 batch process then ...
  • If you don't need to adjust each image uniquely and you want to batch-process multiple images, you could: 1. create a new DxO Preset with color saturation set to 0 (and any other processing options ...
  • Please ignore all the vicious nastiness from "threw the toys out the pram". The only valid point made is that large capacity drives are available, but you won't know exactly how big a drive or ...
  • A server is simply a computer with multiple disk drives that provides data services (hence "server") to other computers on the network. If you have multiple computers on your home network you ...
  • I have been running a computer with 5 drives in it for about 4 years now. No special fans, no extra cooling, no failures, no problem. You just need a big enough case. Mine is a Fractal Design ...
  • No, you don't need a NAS thing, but they are very useful. First off, take a good look at the data you want to back up and make sure have it organized in a way that simplifies the backup process. ...
