Re: Political insults

Re: Mac Photos to LR & PS

A friend of mine who is an Apple user has come up with the solution. It's not intuitive and bit messy but does work. Or at least it does until the next OS/Photos update.

1) Select an image.

Mac Photos to LR & PS

Calling you Mac experts!!

My wife is getting increasingly into photography and she is a long term Apple user. Up to now she has shot in JPEG but I have convinced her to shoot RAW. She uses Photos...

Re: Windows 10 - Fall feature update

My download parked at 67% for about an hour then sprang to life and completed in under a minute. I did check on the machine whilst it was stuck and nothing unusual was happening with no I/O, CPU,...

Re: It came away in her hands

Mine fell to bits about two months ago. However after a deal of careful re-assembly I got it all back and working with the securing ring superglued in place.

That worked well until last week when...

Re: Has anyone completed Lightroom update?

Yep - upgraded on W10.

No problem of any sort. Main improvement is general speed on "file handling" and especially on import during both copy and preview building. What actually happens now is the...

Re: Vinyl Days

Well the evening went superbly. Great music enjoyed by all, aided by certain liquids of course, and a wonderful trip down memory lane.*chr

We did end up on the Concert for Bangladesh via Alice's...

Re: Vinyl Days

I agree Paul. I noticed last night that the front and back cover photos in the Woodstock album are credited to Magnum Photos Inc.

My middle son now has a vinyl setup and wanted to borrow some...

Vinyl Days

We are off to some friends this evening for a vinyl night with a theme of Woodstock.

So I've just got down from the attic to gather a selection of LP's on that theme. Whilst assembling such gems...

Re: Lightroom as we know it is now Lightroom Classic CC

Interesting Paul.

Aesthetics are a personal thing and I find myself unable to get so moved by them to cause me not to opt for performance & stability. However I do agree it is a little flat but to...

First question to answer is why a laptop?

If the machine is for Post Processing, whatever the chosen software, desktop will tend to give you more bang for your s and be easier to upgrade and...

Re: Lightroom as we know it is now Lightroom Classic CC

IT departments are typically very cautious about updating machines due to traditional worries about bugs in new versions. This harks back to the days when new Windows versions were habitually buggy,...

Re: New Features for Photoshop CC 2018

All my plugins except NIK were dealt with including Topaz. I'll have to re-install Nik but that is easy and free so not a problem other than minor inconvenience.

As with the LR update, performance...

Re: Lightroom as we know it is now Lightroom Classic CC

I've updated to Classic LR and all is well.

The process was painless, in response to Paul's unfortunate problems, but it should be noted that I replaced my PC a few months ago with a home ...

Short on time as I'm packing to go to Tanzania tomorrow morning but wanted to do a swift, if insufficient, response to some of your excellent points.

So, in no particular order.

Re: Electric Car Charging Restrictions?

A classic example of misrepresenting facts by taking them out of context and mixing scenarios. Not for the first time of course.

A lot of it comes by mixing the various scenarios described in a...

Re: Texting

That deserves to go, I believe the phrase is, "viral".

Very powerful message about something that can be funny at times and yet considerably more serious at others.

Re: Barking Mad

And frequently do not to mention, in my dogs case as they walk on the beach every day, semi decomposed crabs and other marine based detritus much of which turns my stomach just to look at it.

Re: Preview Images in Black and White

Another loosely linked observation of this is that along with the mono element as described by Paul you can use a different image format (i.e. 1:1, 16:9 etc.) in essentially the same way. So if you...

Re: 60fps - for landscapes?

I have seen this basic idea, just using multiple images shot manually on a tripod, as a suggested alternative to ND filters on the grounds that is avoids any colour correction issues. I'm sure it...
