  • Replied in I like that!
    I recommend "The Lament of Deor", written around 850. It's a poem of sorts telling about several people who experienced misfortunes. The refrain of each stanza is "Þæs ofereode þisses swa mæg" That ...
  • I recently got a pair of sunglasses (since I had to dispose of my prescription glasses after having cataract surgery). They were cheap, but they were polarized. I now have trouble viewing the data ...
  • If they're REALLY in your way, trade them for something. $50 is probably not enough to be worth the hassle of selling them. If they're all working, try something new that uses several lights at ...
  • If your camera can save settings to a card, use it for that. Save the settings and put it in your bag. Maybe even paint it red so you don't mistake it for a card for photo storage. No point in ...
  • The point is that if you use move from the card to the computer, it copies to the computer and deletes the file from the card. IF the copy doesn't work correctly, you wind up with trash on the ...
  • Move is NOT doing things one step at a time. It's copying, AND deleting. If there's any problem with the copying, the deleting will be a real problem. One step at a time would be (1) copy; (2) ...
  • What I would really like to see is an example separating hair from a busy background. I don't always have a nice uniform background for my subjects.
  • Sounds as if the import dialog got changed from "Add" or "Copy" to "Move" PS: You don't have to import directly into LR. You can just copy the files to your disk and then import them into LR. I ...
  • Duplicate. Shooting raw only, using 64Gig cards. If it's a heavy shoot I can switch to a new set at a break. I like having immediate backup. If I screw up a download there's another one waiting.
  • So the solution is to get a model release from one person and use that person's face for all the faces?
  • When I first started digital photography I used pretty simple editors (e.g. IrfanView). Very limited in capability. When I needed to do more I started lusting over Photoshop. But, being cheap thrif ...
  • Being retired from event photography (mostly indoor using elevated ISO) I expect I will be using the gear I have now (D4, D5). Those bodies fill my current needs and I will be concentrating on ...
  • On Windows I use IrfanView (freeware). I have used it since the '90s. FastStone came out later and does pretty much similar things. The UI is different so I stuck with IrfanView. Both programs are ...
  • I have a fairly large collection of family photos. Most of them are just prints in an album. Some have annotation, some don't. There are a lot of photos where identification is a problem. When I ...
  • You could do that but you won't wind up with an image format. Maybe a PDF? The edits are simple enough to do in freeware programs.
  • I have no problem putting the date and time in the file name. I have two organizational systems: Lightroom is mine and the filename is the other. None of my family knows anything about LR, ...
  • I used to use index numbers on my files to keep track of the sequence of shots in a shoot. Eventually I started using more than one camera body, which made index numbers un-useful for sequencing ...
  • IrfanView (Windows only) FastStone (Windows only) MS Paint (Windows only) Not being a Mac guy I can't suggest any Mac apps, but the above are all freeware. I suspect there's probably a way to do it ...
  • Thanks, that helps a bit. My next problem is that the background that I have trouble with is not a uniform color. It's a stone wall, with an array of stones, many different tones in there. The pin ...
  • The only problem with the text in the margin is that the documentation is then separable. It's easy to crop off. And similarly, txt files are separate files, and therefore readily separable from ...
