So bull, horns, grab...


Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen the 40th Photo Challenge *yes

This month’s challenge is called "One of these things is not like the other things".

The title comes from a song sung on Sesame Street to a game of Odd One Out. So there is your theme odd colours, objects, people, this is wide open to interpretation and abuse - just go and shoot anything that doesn't belong!


I know you will enjoy the challenge and we are looking forward to re-starting this great monthly competition!

I am saying well done for restating this and HOPE to enter.

Problem...I have started using RAW and using Oly Master which destroys all Exif...is there an easy way to either stop it happening or to recover it.

It's probably only doing that because you haven't checked the box to save the Exif - it's on the screen you click on ok to finally save. At least it is in Viewer 2 - which may be a better bet anyway as it's a free download and more up to date than Master

If you click on the format drop down arrow near the bottom left hand corner you'll see an option called Exif-Tiff (as well as one called Exif-JPEG). They should retain the Exif data for you.

Thanks again Paul

Yes it's there...nice one.
So as i have been saving as a Tiff and going Jpeg later do I save as Exif/Tiff and when I go to Jpeg does it still retain Exif.

If you save your Tiff as a JPEG in Master 2 you'll need to save it as Exif-JPEG. I think (but am not 100% sure - no doubt someone else will know) that most other software automatically keeps the Exif. Certainly the ones I've used do.

I'd be happy with a screen capture showing the Exif data if all goes wrong

Thank you to those who have submitted their images already

For the rest of the 1914 members a reminder...

You have 4 days left to submit your entry for the odd one out challenge.

or, and perhaps more appropriately,

You have 4 whole days to capture an image of something that does not belong, tinker, tweak and crop said image and attach it to an email.

So don't even think about resealing around the shower or raking out the moss or phoning your parents until you've entered the competition

Hi.

2 issues stopping me from entering....

1. The EXIF is still absent.....saved as Exif/Tiff in master 2 but obviously I have to got to jpeg later.

2.I only know how to upload from the gallery and people will see the entry then.
To other sites I either get them from my computer or Photobucket.

Keith *chr

UPDATE......found out what is eating the Exif......O.K. as Tiff and Jpeg ...but if I do NR in Noiseware Community Edition it goes.
