  • In order of preference of the types of technology: (1) Online double conversion (2) Line interactive with sine wave output (3) Offline ...
  • I prefer a S&W .45 ACP...
  • I use CS6 most of the  time, still use CS3 because it supports plugins that CS5 and later broke and, finally, I have PS6 (that's pre-CS version 6) installed on a flash drive so I can do quick edits ...
  • 8GB is marginal for PS, especially for pano work. An acquaintance of mine in New Zealand stitches and edits really large images with a machine having 64GB of RAM and he wishes for more. Note that ...
  • I have no experience with their products but I assume the functions will be similar to what I'm using. Reliability is something you should research. Your question about sync should be answered in ...
  • I use a simple, 2 bay QNAP with GoodSync software. I use GoodSync because of familiarity —  I owned it prior to receiving the QNAP (a gift from my wife). Good backup software will include ...
  • No, not really. I work with two computers, each with 32GB of RAM. One has an SSD as the system disk and the other has a Raptor as the system disk plus an SSD for scratch and related functions. PS ...

  • I have a single LR catalog which I imported into C1. I continue to import images into LR and then update the C1 catalog so the images are always present in both pieces of software. I don't do much ...
  • This sturdy hood takes care of my medium telephotos quite well but is no longer available new. They turn up on ebay and FM from time to time. Google turned up another option although I have no ...
  • 16-85: Had it, sold it, don't miss it.
  • Replied in DXO worth it?
    I use the free version 9 to occasionally correct lens distortion but I am otherwise unimpressed with this (admittedly dated) software. My go-to raw converter is Capture One. Maybe give that trial ...
  • Replied in Thank you all!
    Glad you got it sorted out. I misread your original post -- I thought it was Capture that wasn't working for you. I never did find View all that useful.
  • Any idea which update killed it? I'm running 8.1 and Capture NX 2 with no issues. I install all critical and most recommended updates, rarely any optional ones.
  • I did my own research and testing on compression levels a few years ago. What I found interesting is that it's been shown that, when using Photoshop, saving at maximum quality (12) will cause the ...
  • Go CC... unless you really don't care about images. A photographer said nearly the same thing to me with regard to lens choice. I told him I had opted for a Nikon 18-35 over the pricier 16-35, to ...
  • Replied in LucisArt
    I have the lite/cheaper/non-pro Windows version. PM me if that's what you need.
  • Converting to CMYK is as easy as a mouse click. Doing it correctly and optimally for the destination press process is akin to an art. Your contact at the pub may help you but most likely you will ...
  • How to change to CMYK in PS Elements?? No can do. Get Photoshop.
  • Replied in To SSD or not?
    I have an SSD and three HDDs in my work machine. The OS and apps are loaded on a V-raptor and the SSD is used for PS scratch, LR and Capture One catalogs and previews, working images, pagefile ...
