  • Another vote for SNS-HDR. I've been using it for years and highly recommend. One negative is that it's a one-man company, so stability and longevity may be questionable. Also, very few updates in ...
  • I've had some success correcting curved horizontals with the Adaptive Wide Angle filter. Takes a learning curve, and several steps depending on how long and how curved the "bad" horizontal is. The ...
  • Yes, I never do editing in LR, so the catalog only includes links to real images and previews. I only use LR for searching because it's faster and has better filters than Bridge. My point however: ...
  • My image library (files) is 382 GB, 49,000 files. My Bridge Cache for these is 40.2 GB My Lightroom Catalog for these is 37.1 GB Both Bridge and Lightroom hold "monitor size" previews (2560x1440). ...
  • Thanks. Found it, t'was running on auto, disabled it. Time will tell.
  • Well, another one popped up yesterday 8/12/22, first in 6 days: C:\System Volume Information\{70df87ad-17ff-11ed-b362-f8b54df36e92}{3808876b-c176-4e48-b7ae-04046e6cc752} Date Modified 8/11/2022 ...
  • I'll try to actually answer your question, but first I need to re-state it as "Which camera profiles produce the most accurate colors." Most students of photographic color science agree that it's ...
  • I ran Macrium Reflect 5 times to test "shadow copying". Each time I banged away on the C: drive while Macrium was running, monitoring the System Volume folder at the same time. I even used Regedit ...
  • Thanks, everyone, but I know how to get rid of the files. That's not difficult. Still curious about where they are coming from. I'm pretty sure they are not related to system restore points. When ...
  • I'm 3 months on an all new desktop with Windows 11. Everything was settled down and running OK. Then, in the past 3 days, 4 huge files showed up in the mysterious "System Volume" folder on the OS ...
  • Thanks, didn't realize it was hopeless. That's amazing.
  • Created discussion thread Edit the Photoshop "save as" list??
    A minor annoyance, but... I'd like to edit the list of file "save as" formats in Photoshop. I want to remove junk like scitex, targa, webp, multi-picture format, jpeg stero, IFF, and others I've ...
  • I finally figured out how this is happening, but I don't know why. The culprit is Lightroom, specifically the Import function. I use a backup utility called SyncBack to backup my image library to ...
  • Still learning, I guess. I understand that Windows (via File Explorer) can access EXIF data on image files and display the contents. But what I'm dealing with is not the EXIF data, it's the FILE data.
  • For the fun of it, I set the date in-camera to year 2100 and fired off several shots. Windows explorer and other non-Adobe software sees that creation date of year 2100, both on the SD card and on ...
  • Thanks for that. Some interesting stuff there I never considered before. It explains how a file can look modified before it was created, but doesn't explain some of what I'm seeing. When I see a ...
  • I have a Windows system with all my image files on one drive (G), data on a separate drive (F), and then the system drive (C). When searching for things by date (created or modified), I have ...
  • OK, thanks for that minor detail not mentioned anywhere in Topaz material. So I uninstalled it and the uninstall left behind the entire "models" folder with 7.2 gigs of data! The Topaz boys ...
  • I give up. How do I get "authorization" to run the app? I have Denoise and Sharpen licenses, but not Gigapixel. Downloaded and installed PhotoAI, but when I launch I end up in an endless loop ...
  • Replied in An Update.
    I sent my layered tif to Topaz and they analyzed and replied. Now it gets interesting. Topaz pointed out that if you blow up the image 200% you see what they feel are "significant" differences ...
