  • Replied in Me too.
    I have some deer shots taken around my home but I don't have any especially good shots of deer. Because I'm on a pond, my better shots are of birds. You can see my better shots at the Flickr site ...
  • Replied in Me too.
    These shots were taken from inside my house or from the back deck. The views are so nice I worry that art inside the house distracts from the views.
  • This is the op again. Rather than have a dedicated photo LCD at a wall art location, I am prefering the concept of using the living room tv for that purpose. That seems to be the most practical ...
  • I have been planning to take video of several rapid section of the local Truckee river and combine them with music to make a pleasant ambiant video during conversation with guests.
  • Replied in BayPhoto
    I've only heard good things about BayPhoto but their prices for a 24x32 metal print are about double the price of Costco. Also, I live near a Costco.
  • Replied in BayPhoto
    Since Costco doesn't have a profile for metal prints but everyone seems to like their prints, I wonder if the printer looks at files on their calibrated monitor and adjusts the files if necessary ...
  • I talked to two different Costco's in Nevada near Reno and both of them said they cannot get a profile for metal prints. They have profiles for two types of paper used on two types of paper for ...
  • Created question thread Costco Metal Vs. Acrylic?
    On Costco's website the promote Acrylic as: (1) acrylic produces brilliant color (2) Features superb image quality from edge to edge
  • I have some questions about professional printers and Costco metal prints. Do print shops look at each photo on their calibrated monitor and make fine tuning improvements before printing? I ...
  • Thanks for the encouragement, Greybalanced. Some people are resistant to new technology or, for that matter, anything new. To be honest, I've seen that in myself at time. I think I am suspicious of ...
  • Your solution is good for viewing jsut one photo in a dark location but it does not allow a slideshow of hundreds of photos. This thread is more about presenting a slideshow. Do you enjoy watching ...
  • Thanks for all of the valuable info. Since my original post I've changed my mind. Rather than replace a photo with a screen displaying my photos, I'm considering getting a 4K OLED TV to replace my ...
  • Number 4 is easy unless I'm misunderstanding your goal. You should install the photos that you want on each screen and set them to slideshow. You don't wifi or bluetooth. You just input the photos ...
  • You can still get them and they are called Digital Photo Frames. The best I found on Amazon is by Nixplay and it is 18.5" diagonal, 1366 x 768 pixels, and 16:9. It costs $270. It is a good size ...
  • About thirty years ago I read an article about those monitors in Bill Gates mansion. Todays LCD's are so much better, bigger, higher resolution, better performance, lower power and a fraction of ...
  • Thanks for the link. Apparently it is a thing and the monitor in the link averages only 75 watts. It is a more than I want to spend but I will look for competitors and options.
  • I'm considering getting a monitor to display my work in my living room. I like to show off my work and rather than have several prints around the house I could have fewer prints and one screen ...
  • What is simple for some might not be simple for others. If I was good at interpreting the info in Task Manager and Resource Monitor I probably wouldn't have needed to ask the original OP question. ...
  • I knew that. I was trying to say that  I wonder if having Cache and Scratch on an SSD and separate from the OS drive and the data drive would off load the RAM to decrease the possibility of it ...
  • 10kb is surprisingly small. However, I think the XMP data always gets written in the Catalog so if it is written to a sidecar too it gets written twice. Still, it is such a small amount.... Somethi ...
