Re: A question about file organization and cataloging

Adobe Bridge is only ten years old. Prior to Bridge, there was a similar software inside of Photoshop called "Browser". Photo Mechanic is my favorite software, but I use it less and less now. Somewhat recently, I adopted an eclectic collection of cameras for my use, and I've found perhaps ...

Re: A question about file organization and cataloging

ThumbsPlus is about to be 22 years old! Whoa. I remember when it showed up as "ThumbsUp!" before they had to change their name because of trademark issues.

Re: A question about file organization and cataloging

Oh my....! Thumbs Plus lives! I thought for sure it was long gone. If I recall correctly, Either Title / Object Name or Headline usually automatically comes up as a title in social media. I think Facebook might do both. I think the most recent standard has Title and Object Name as the same field now...

Re: A question about file organization and cataloging

I've got some thoughts saved that I'll attach to this post. In a nutshell, I would recommend using the IPTC quasi-standard used to keyword image files by many programs and organizations. Photo Mechanic, Lightroom, Phase One's Capture One, etc. should be able to read and edit this information. I'd gu...

Re: What went wrong!?!

Old Mamiya M645 lens hoods in E77 thread are great for reducing reflections, and fit most "professional" autofocus lenses, at least, those made prior to Canon (and others) moving to 82 and 86mm fronts starting with the 16-35 f/2.8L II. Push the end of the hood up against the glass to block...

Re: Nicole

Ed,

I just wanted to take a moment to publicly thank you for post. Can't begin to thank you enough for the time you put into your critique. Reading and re-reading as I have more time, and will hopefully not forget all the bits and pieces next time. 8):

Re: What went wrong!?!

Tom, I think the biggest problem here is that it was shot through a window. The glass used for windows tend to have properties very different from optical glass. :D That said, I have lots of snapshots of critters shot through the window. Not a lot of photographic or artistic merit there, but hey, I ...
