Re: Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

I'm now quite optimistic that the email notifications problem has been licked. My guess is that the change in server IP address or server host name was enough for some mail services to reject forum mails but a simple configuration change increased our mail validity score dramatically. And without sacrificing posting responsiveness.

Underneath the photo you will see a bunch of icons. The one looking like a camera reveals the exif data further below.

Re: Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

I use FireFox and the excellent FXIF plug in so I can just right-click on an image and read the exif data.

This won't work on the gallery though as right-clicks are disabled in a feeble attempt to dissuade photo piracy. Works on images embedded in forum posts though.

I use EXIF Viewer (an extension) in Google Chrome browser, with a right click of the mouse. I can see the Artist & Copyright name too Paul.
Also, you used LR on a Mac.

Re: Server move around 8AM on Monday 17th July

A lot of thanks goes to the hard work of our server hosting company, Liquid Web. They were a bit stressed out last week with some issues but the support service has been back to its normal excellence over the weekend and today
