1  Software Discussions / Aperture / Re: Aperture 3 - AppStore download - further evaluation? on: January 08, 2011, 07:52:17 PM
Thanks John for the prompt response.I guess the old adage that if it seems to good to be true it probably is. That said, I'll save my money and continue to plug along with EM2 and PhotoshopCS5. The DAM book is really enlightening me about useful ways to organize my images, etc., etc.
Thanks again, Bill
2  Software Discussions / Aperture / Aperture 3 - AppStore download - further evaluation? on: January 08, 2011, 10:20:03 AM
I discovered yesterday that Apple's AppStore has a $79 price to download the current version of Aperture 3. At this price it's a steal. My question concerns whether or not the major issue raised to date ( a few months back), namely directory view being lacking, has been resolved/fixed? I currently use EM2 and Photoshop CS5 with Adobe's DNG converter to manage my digital assets, mostly based on underwater RAW images that I obtain with my Canon A720IS using the freeware CHDK to make this feature available. I have the latest OS 10.6.6 software running on my new MacBook Air, w/ a 256gb SSD and 2 GB RAM. This is a great unit for traveling, weighing only 3 lbs and having a ca 7h battery life. I updated to the new version of EM2 when I bought the DAM book, having used the original IM for years, but not appreciating the cataloging and asset management features that are now and were available in the pre MicroSoft  versions.

TIA Bill

5  DAM Stuff / DNG / Batch rename .dng to .crw on: December 20, 2010, 08:06:25 PM
I have been using a Canon A720IS in a Canon underwater housing along with Canon CHDK to obtain raw digital images as well as the usual jpgs. My problem is this: I chose to have the raw files output with the DNG file suffix rather than Canon-specific CRW. Now I have the problem as I am managing my catalog (Expression Media 2 , Adobe DNG Converter, and  Photoshop CS5) of easily distinguishing the raw "dng" files from the converted "real DNGs". Batch rename in EM2 doesn't change the file suffix. I would like to change all the raw files labelled DNG to CRW. Then the confusion vanishes. Any ideas appreciated, but be warned I am not a competent script writer!  Thanks in advance, Bill
