  • I stand corrected.  The post saying that 'the link' had been deactivated was simply a subject line saying 'They just killed that link.'   In the absence of any more information in the post, I ...
  • I actually bought Nik from Google about 4 years ago.  Then, shortly after I made my purchase, Google stopped selling it and made the software free to all.  They sent me a rebate of my purchase. Sin ...
  • The free version is working fine on my new iMac running High Sierra and LR Classic/PS 2018.  Everything is readable, including the access menu Nik adds.  The 'brush' option is a bit 'odd' but I ...
  • Your idea got me onto something else.  I'm tied up with work but will post when I can check it out more fully.
  • A very interesting idea that I hadn't thought about.  However, when I tested it out, it looks like that isn't the explanation :( The 'export catalog' command creates a folder/directory with the ...
  • I agree with you.  I meant to apologize for not being clearer. I compared the EXIF information in the catalogs on the two computers. The filename is identical. The EXIF capture time and date are ...
  • Sorry - I thought that was implicit in my description. I see that but it doesn't work. I've attached a screenshot of the window I get after selecting the catalog to import. As you can see, it does ...
  • I could do something like that. However, the temporary catalog has 120 images selected from a pool of about 1,200 classed into about 8 different directories.  Finding the incoming images would be ...
  • I've been using the 'import from another catalog' command.  But, I don't see an option to create virtual copies. The only choices is gives me are: (1) Add new photos to the catalog without moving
  • Created discussion thread Importing edited photos into Lightroom
    I need to import photos from a temporary catalog into my main catalog, creating virtual copies of edits done in the temporary catalog. The photos already exist in the main catalog. I can't see how ...
  • i was down in those areas last summer.  If you like hiking, look into a day trip on the South Down's way. Seven Sisters is a nice photographic site. I spent a day traveling to East Grinstead for a ...
  • Can you use the Cokin P-series filters with a Tokina 11-20mm lens?  The tokina lens has an 82mm filter thread size and the P-series does have an 82mm adapter.  But, the filter size is 84mm x 84mm ...
  • Congrats on reaching a decision. Those two lenses should be really good for you. Personally, I would miss the coverage from 24mm to 70mm but styles differ. I would echo the comments about the 35mm ...
  • What types of images and subjects attract your interest?  The D750 with 70-200mm lens is an excellent combination.  But, it wouldn't work well for cityscapes, interiors of churches, etc. Personally ...
  • The OP can say whether he felt the thread was hijacked but I don't think is was.  The essence of the original post was: which lenses are good for astrophotography and northern lights.  The OP ...
  • Do you really mean an 80-200mm kit lens?  That isn't a 'kit' lens for the D5100. It's a very respected lens but it will not auto-focus on a D5100.  I wonder if she might have the 18-200mm lens. In ...
  • For Northern Lights, wider and faster is good. The astrophotography material suggests a 24mm f/1.4 as being a 'sweet spot' for the Milky Way.  They strongly recommend the Rokinon 24mm f/1.4.  I ...
  • I never considered that option. I did complain to Amazon about these prices and they never suggested that this was the case. The best 'solution' they gave is that rare items are priced 'as the ...
  • FWIW I just searched on Amazon.ca for this listing and could not find it.  The cheapest price for this lens is given as $1,100 Can. My experience on amazon.ca is that Market Place pricing for ...
  • I haven't been to Central Asia but, for my travel trips (mainly long distance hiking), I bit the bullet and got the 16-80mm f/2.8-4 lens. It coves most of the range that I need in a walk around ...
