Woops - I somehow changed the camera presets on these psd images.  I went back to default and they're back to normal.  As always Peter, thanks for the help.

Hi

Thumbnails from a few of my PSD files are overexposed with colors that are off.  When I go ahead and open these files in Photoshop CS3 they look fine.  How can I correct this problem and what made it happen in the first place?

3  Software Discussions / Lightroom / One Catalog or Multiple on: March 24, 2009, 03:49:18 PM
I have a little over 300 GB worth of both film and digital images that I have been reorganizing into folders manually.  Before I attempt to ingest all my images into lightroom 2.2, I have a question about file structure?   Right now I keep all images in a folder named images and then I divide my folders into years or for older stuff broad catagories (eg. old landscape images).  From there I figure I can continue to organize from lightroom.  Should I go ahead and ingest my images folder as one large catalog OR is it best to ingest each separate year folder as a separate catalog? 

Another approach would be to just ingest my newer digital work into lightroom and put all my film work into expressions media but it sure would be nice to have it all together in the same DAM. 

Any wisdom would be appreciated.

4  General / General Discussion / DAM trying figure out this DAM workflow on: September 18, 2008, 08:29:47 PM
My DAM workflow is pretty pathetic at this point in time.  Luckily I don't have too many images but enough to start making my head spin (maybe 2500 or so).  At the moment I upload my images onto my pictures folder on my imac.  After collecting a number of folders, I  manually drag them onto a digital capture folder on two external hard drives.  I then, after checking that they transfered, dump what is on my internal drive.  Yes this is an embarassing abomination to even mention on this forum, yet I feel like I'm sitting in the back of the class without the proper prerequites. 

What I imagine would be better would be to set up my workflow so that when I upload raw images they are automatically saved on multiple hard drives in the correct folder.  But what happens when I make non destructive changes to raw images on one hard drive?  Can I  configure my DAM to immediately make these changes to my backed up files?  And do the same for any changes I make on my derivative PSD files.

At the moment I have not done any key wording, but I have started to manually move my images into folders organized at the highest level by year.  eg. Digital Capture 2008 , Derivative Images 2008. I do have a number of Expressions Media catalogs of various projects and locations.  I'm proceeding slowly partly because I have seen one of my Expressions Media catalogs become corrupted so that I had to manually rebuild it.  Luckily I was dealing with a couple of hundred images and not thousands. 

What are the first two or three things I should do next to my my workflow more streamlined?

Also, is using bridge, expressions, photoshop a simpler organizational workflow then Lightroom/ Aperture? I find Expressions Media to be at a basic level quite simple, yet finding help using the program is ridiculous considering there is no help menu.  For example, I noticed the few times I tried to add metadata it did not transfer - later I learned about syncing annotations which one expected just to know. 

Your insight and comments would be appreciated.

Is it possible to transfer catalogs or metadata from Microsoft media expressions to Lightroom 2.0?

Thanks,

Is it possible to export my metadata from Microsoft Media Expressions to Adobe Lightroom 2.0?

I am working on mac 10.5.2 with Nikon D300 NEFs.  I can read the raw files in ACR and open them in photoshop.  I just can't view the thumbnails.  I have tried to purge the cache and rebuild / export but still can't view them.  Thanks for your help.

I've just installed bridge and the latest ACR onto another mac but am having trouble viewing the NEF files. I put the latest ACR plug-in where the old one was under application support.  I have tried to build and export cache under bridges tools but that does not help.  What should I try next.

Thanks for all the help on this forum.  I have edited my Yosemite photography site http://www.yosemitecollection.com/  This site is not a blog but a portfolio of landscape images.  Oh and check out the Yosemite Marching Band.

I fixed my issue with reading nikon nefs. 

Back to Lightroom:

Will the new version of LR that is supposed to be available sometime this summer be able to read larger files? 
11  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / Is it possible to run Iview and Expressions Media? on: April 29, 2008, 06:34:02 AM
I'm still having trouble building my html galleries in Expressions Media.  I'm considering reinstalling Iview Media Pro to see if it works any better.  If I try this will I overwrite Expressions Media? 

Thank you Peter for all of your help.  I have tried what you suggested regarding my problem creating html galleries but I still have the same problems.  In the past I was able to build my galleries with iview media pro without these problems.

12  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / Problem changing file names for html portfolio on: April 27, 2008, 11:50:20 AM
I'd like to avoid having my actual file names appear on my html gallery.  For example I might have a file name such as El_Capitan_11x14.tiff that I would like to read in my gallery as El Capitan.  Yes I know this isn't the way to name files but most of these are older film images.  Now for my big mistake:  I went ahead and changed the file names in a number of virtual catalogs that are my web portfolios.  I realize that I have now changed the original file names.  Luckily we are talking about 100 or so images so I can retype the original names to keep them together.  So what is the easiest way to give my web images titles that are not the original title without renaming the html files?  I wish I didn't have to use my real name.

On top of this, when I try to generate a gallery, some of the images do not show (just a question mark).  And a few of my thumbnails when clicked on show the wrong image.  I have tried to rebuild and reset the paths of the images that I'm having problems with but this does not help.  The catalogs that I am making galleries from show paths to all the correct images.

I have had many head aches with Expression Media.  I am considering Adobe Lightroom but I'm concerned about its ability to handle large film scans in tiff and psd (300 - 900 MB).  I know that earlier lightroom would not read large files.  Has this changed?  Will the new version be more user friendly for a collection of images that at this point is mostly medium format scans?  I still can't get Expressions Media to read my nikon d300 nef files and I am having many problems generating html galleries that I did not have with Iview.  As a teacher I see that i can get lightroom for as much as Microsoft will charge for the upgrade to Expressions Media 2.  I have a collection of maybe 2000-3000 images which I know is relatively small.  Want I want in a dam is the ability to build virtual catalogs and create html galleries that look professional as well as adding metadata to my collection.
