About me:

Although my name is "Nikcan" I no longer have either a Nikon or a Canon due to age. I now use a GH3 and GH4 with its lenses and I find it a pleasure to carry about.

Nikcan's recent activity

  • Since CC came onto fruition i have oped for DxO. No catalogues great for me as I make my own folders Import into DxO then out into Lightroom 5.7 as a Tiff after noise prime reduction. Both have ...
  • I have the Red and Black one, looks sexy and people think it's a toy. Good for then it is less lightly to get nicked. I love mine especially with a 12-35mm 2-8 stuck on the front. Works well that ...
  • Thanks for your info, I will not be going to Lightroom 6 as I am quite happy with DxO plus LR 5, they both interact with each other either on a PC or a Mac and make a great combination. I am not ...
  • Thanks for your reply, this was third party information and I stand corrected.
  • Thanks for your reply, this is a steep learning curve for me and I will try this method. At this present time photos is not the default and has been unticked. Now I can search for London within my ...
  • BTW I understand that the standalone version of Lightroom6  is a cut down version.
  • Thanks for the info gaussian blur, I will investigate Spotlight and give it a try. My backups are fine, only DxO on the PC fell over and although they fixed it it has packed up again and it is ...
  • Sorry I messed the reply up but I think you will get the idea.
  • I use a viewer called Fast Stone and a simple files system incorporating day, month, year and location. so if you asked me to find an image from 1996 taken is say London I could find it. So many ...

    Thank you for your help, it's all water under the bridge now and time to move on. I purchased a 4 tb hard drive today and partitioned it for a Time Machine so I will be keeping the Mac. I think now ...
  • Hi DiploStat, Thanks for the comment and yes I am struggling but with the accusation of the Mac and a pending holiday plus being on a state pension I have to try to overcome problems myself which ...

    Thanks for the heads up Tom. As I said I am happy now thanks to the guys on here showing me the right way to do things. I have only had the machine a couple of weeks and feel that Apple should have ...

    What can I say, this forum is fantastic. After a good nights sleep i did what greybalanced and reenc said and it works a treat. I still cant see why Mac would use Photo as the default on a Macbook ...
  • Yes I have it on trial and it works great on a PC. Thanks for your help and I hope I haven't hijacked the thread.
  • Sorry Graybalanced I missed your post, all I need is a simple file system as explained in my last post. I was getting near the point that the Mac was "not fit for purpose" and was thinking of ...
  • I'm new as well and hate Photo and want to download onto a hard drive without it interfering with it. I am doing a trial with Fastrawviewer which seems to replicate Fast stone image viewer on a ...
  • Hi Brian, will be joining you in December for a month, staying initially in Daytona then touring for a month. Trying t]still to get my head around this sill folders issue. Love Windows for its ...
  • Hi Abbott, still cant get my head around folders on the Mac, I want to use Year, Month and the Images and names like London 16-11-2015  rather than loads of images in that month. The same as you ...
  • Hi, I think I have found one, imports, culls, gives basic corrections runs DxO and Light Room shows raw images and is a 30 day trial. Lots to learn and it is call ironically FASTRAWVIEWER. I am ...
  • All I really need is a viewer with exif date and be able to view files on the Mac with out searching. The programs I have seen seem to be like a sledge hammer to crack a nut. Fast Stone should do ...
