  • I have found that I can change metadata dates on selected photos in LR, but only when I'm in the Library grid mode. If I'm in Loupe mode, it only changes the primary selection. That also applies ...
  • Anything that handles layers will be able to do something like that. If you have never done that sort of thing a world awaits you. Always good to be in danger of learning something new. It sounds ...
  • I was a farmer for 30 years so I can't say that I am typical when it comes to carrying things around. I used a D3 for a few years, then a D4, then a D4+D5. Lenses 14-24-70-200-500. After a few ...

    Transition is no sweat. Select your image. Right click on it and select "Edit in". Photoshop is the default external editor so it will be one of the options. Click on that. Your image will be sent ...
  • Got it. Kind of like a baseball card. The png format should be no problem. I'm a Photoshop guy so I don't use Affinity, but I would expect it would do the job. In fact, almost any editor would ...
  • True, but it is nice to leave the original photo unobscured and put the text in white space added to the image. The only drawback to that approach is that someone could cut off the white space. I ...
  • It's always a problem when you get a family photo without metadata. I have a photo of an ancestor that I have tentatively dated to 1860. This woman was born 1838 and was married in 1860. I have ...
  • Png is a standard format and most editing programs should be able to handle it. Not sure what you mean by a two-pic template. Is the team too big to fit on one photo? Are you planning to identify ...
  • When I first started shooting I shot jpg since that was what I knew. When I screwed up some settings on nonrepeatable shots and had to sweat out the processing, I decides to shoot raw+jpg. At that ...
  • 100% Lightroom for the catalog. Triage, then preliminary edits there if needed. ~10% move on to PS, then back to LR for the catalog.
  • Action costs time. Inaction costs space.
  • I don't have a problem with extremely large volumes of photos and I keep everything. Just a suggestion: You have everything backed up, right? Probably on an external hard drive, since they are ...
  • Since you have LR6, go for the dng conversion. Minimum cost, same workflow after that. If, later, you find it unsatisfying, you can try something else. Personally, I went for the subscription and ...
  • Not before January
  • I would call this a bug in the Sony system. If you can add information (like ratings) into the file, it should be done in the EXIF data in such a way that a Win/Mac computer can use those data. Sou ...
  • Not necessarily. Subscription pricing is spreading, and you will see more programs provided that way in the future.
  • I'd say also brightness differences. Crank down the screen brightness.
  • I paid $6500 for my D5 a few years ago. I didn't think it was too much since I did a lot of high ISO shooting. And I feel I get value out of it. Perspective changes, also. When I was a kid, $5000 ...
  • Replied in D3 users help!
    Are you shooting raw or jpg? I don't know of any way to calibrate the camera screen, but you can make some jpg adjustments in post, possibly even as a standard preset. The real solution would be to ...
  • I tried that out a couple years ago and it worked sometimes but not always reliably. I see the version is now dated Dec 2019 so I'll have to try it again. But I also have had pretty good results ...
