1  Software Discussions / RAW File Converters / help renaming files with Adobe DNG convertor on: February 26, 2010, 08:28:08 PM
I'm trying to rename my files as specified in The Dam Book. for example, IMG_4567.RAW becomes:


I can't seem to get Adobe's DNG convertor to add in the capture date and the files ID number (4567). I used to use Lightroom/Expression Media, but I now use Aperture 3 and need some help renaming my DNG files for Aperture.
2  Software Discussions / Aperture / Question about DNG and sidecars on: February 25, 2010, 11:56:54 AM
I used to use Microsoft Expression Media. When I would edit a .DNG file in Photoshop and update the sidecar or JPEG preview, EM would show the .DNG with the new adjusted preview in its catalog.

I noticed Aperture 3.0 doesn't read these adjustments from my .DNG files. Is there a way to get Aperture to properly read my .DNG files?

Conversely, when I make RAW edits in Aperture, can I view these on the .DNG master in Photoshop? How?

also wanted to mention i shoot relatively few photos but I need software that can handle photos, videos and such. i liked this feature of EM. lightroom doesn't seem to offer this so if there is a replacement out there for EM, please share.

i use expression media currently but am having a few issues with my mac on snow leopard. i don't really want my cataloging software to be expression ever again given the lack of support/development.

i'm looking for something where I can catalog my images and some movie files. are there any solid alternatives for cataloging on a mac?

do any of you make multiple catalogs? if so, for what purpose?

is it hard to combine two catalogs?

im not too familiar with lightroom, but it looks like i'm stuck with iview. i need some video clips side by side with photos.

would you say LightRoom can replace the workflow as far as Bridge -> iView goes? is it good to use lightroom to bring in a shoot, organize, and send to dmg. (After this I let iView take over for cataloging).

i shoot a lot of photos in RAW, but occassionally take quick shots and video/movie clips with a digital camera. in iView they show up side by side with a photo.

those of you not using iView and using Aperture or Lightroom, how do you manage and catalog your video clips that go with a shoot?
9  Software Discussions / Lightroom / going from iView to LR on: December 11, 2007, 05:58:43 PM
I'm swithcing to LR and am pretty new to the program. The best part about iView for me was the Catalog Sets. I was able to organize and use these to quickly find photos.

I'm not sure how to import my iView catalog sets into LR. Is there something similar in LR?

I'm sticking with iview. but now that EM has a service pack out, is it worth using that? I own both, so I wouldnt have to purchase anything.

Also, I've just recommended your book to a friend who shoots heavily for the coast guard. But I realized some part are a little outdated - any chance of a revised version, a part 2, or a new book coming out soon?

12  Software Discussions / Aperture / Projects and Folders on: August 26, 2007, 01:47:25 AM
Hi all,
I'm not sure I understand the difference between Projects and Folders in Aperture 1.5.4. I know Albums contain photos and Folders can contain several albums, but what is the purpose of a Project? If it's to contain several Folders, doesn't that seem redundant since you can nest Folders?

Could someone please clarify?
13  Software Discussions / Choosing Software/Other DAM Applications / Getting back into DAM - catalog app for mac on: August 13, 2007, 07:26:12 PM
With so many choices, it's a bit confusing. I was using iView for quite a while. I had to take about a year off from photography and DAM in general and now that I'm getting back into it, I see MS bought out iView and released Expressions.

I have about 12,000 photos and don't shoot as often as before. I'm not sure which cataloging app to use. I'm considering the following: Expressions, Aperture, and Lightroom. I just bought a 24" iMac, so if someone could point me towards a program I would appreciate it. I'm mainly looking for a program that will let me keep track of my large photo collection and successfully organize it.

You would not want images to pick up settings just because they had been viewed with the settings.

I would have thought the opposite, since you look at the "pretty good prints" you are working with. I wouldn't want them to all of sudden convert to something else.

Just for clarification, the ONLY way to convert DNG with the NO AUTO setting is to actually apply it? (So there is no way to make this a default where applying it is not necessary?)
15  Software Discussions / Bridge/ Camera Raw / Re: dng images get "auto adjustments" on: April 30, 2006, 10:32:55 AM
Currently my camera raw default is set to no auto. But are you saying that regardless, I have to apply this setting to the incoming files in bridge in order for it to stick?

If so, what's the point of being a default?
