Thomas -- no, I do not have the LCD trays.  In retrospect, that would have been the best configuration to have, as they alert me to temp and fan issues.

Since I last posted, MacGurus kindly replaced 2 of my fans at no cost, and all is good again...

2  DAM Stuff / Hardware Discussions / noisy Burly fans on: February 16, 2008, 06:51:20 AM
I've been using MacGuru's Burly 5 bay enclosure for the past 8 months or so, and have noticed increased fan noise.  Upon further inspection I noticed that one of the small individual drive fans was not spinning at all.  I contacted MacGurus, and they suggested blowing out the dust and spraying silicone spray on the fans.  It helped a bit, but it still periodically makes noise.

Any other suggestions?

Peter -- I'm not sure what you're referring to when you say that "these go to 11".

I got a response on this question from Peter Bauer at the NAPP Help Desk:

"The JFIF standard (JPEG File Interchange Format -- JPEG is actually the
compression scheme, not the file format) permits a number of compression
level encodings, which (unfortunately) are not interchangeable.  Adobe
Photoshop CS2 and CS3 use 0-12 in the File> Save As / JPEG Options dialog
box, but 0-100 in Save for Web.  Adobe Illustrator uses 0-100 in Save for
Web, but 0-10 in File> Export.  There is no direct correlation among "0-10"
and "0-12" and "0-100."

  And, to further complicate the matter of compression, digital cameras have
their own proprietary schemes, which may or may not fully comply with the
JPEG standard and which are not interchangeable with software schemes.
Lightroom defaults to 60, as does Save for Web in both Photoshop and
Illustrator.  That seems to have been a decision made some time in the past
(Thomas, perhaps?) that has become part of the Jpeg legacy as implemented by
Adobe.  

  It also seems, based on tests using the same image saved at various
compression levels that "60" as defined by Lightroom is not identical to
"60" as defined by Save for Web (Photoshop CS3) or identical to any of
Photoshop's 13 compression levels (0-12).  I saved files from Lightroom and
Photoshop, combined them as layers in a single image, then used the
Difference blending mode to compare upper layers to the base layer.  As I
moved the cursor, the Info palette showed that the layers were not
identical. "

So it doesn't really answer my question, but I've got lots more stuff to think about!

In Photoshop, we have a JPEG compression scale from 1-12 (1-3 - low, 4-5 - medium, 6-8 - high, and 9-12 Maximum).  Lightroom is from 0-100.  Does anyone know how these match up? (Very often I don't need maximum quality, so I go with a setting of 8 whcih gives me a managable file size to email)

Is it possible to do a find in Lightroom to locate images that have not been keyworded?

In Develop, hold down Ctrl/Cmd and click the Sync button. It becomes Auto Sync - any changes you make to one image will be applied to all the selected ones (like ACR's behaviour). If you work in Develop, this avoids the "do it then sync it" two step.

John -- for the mac, shouldn't the shortcut be Option/Cmd?

8  DAM Stuff / Backup Strategies and Tools / Re: advantage of tiff or psd for derivitive files ? on: February 14, 2007, 04:38:08 PM
I'm in process of cataloging layered PSD files in iView, and because I hadn't enabled "maximize compatability" in Photoshop, I am not able to view thumbnails or previews.  I would think that alone would make it better to save out layered files as TIFF.

9  DAM Stuff / Hardware Discussions / Hard Drive recommendation? on: January 16, 2007, 07:09:21 AM
I'm looking to purchase an external hard drive to use as a backup boot drive in case of disaster.  I found this on the Apple site:

http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/wa/RSLID?mco=23DDD88A&nplm=TJ296LL%2FA#rev

Does anyone have any experience with the Seagate external drives?

Thanks!

ACR's sharpening does not handle specular highlights well.  I turn off all sharpening in ACR when I have that, and use Photokit capture sharpener within Photoshop.  It works well, but is a pain when I have to process a large number of files.

I've downloaded and installed the script, but doesn't work.  Is that because it's not compatible with the latest version of iWiew?

Peter -- when I go to the link you listed, and go to the post you mention, and read Robert Edward's comments that say to go to the bottom of the page to download the script...

it's not there to download.

Am I missing something here?

Peter -- you say to look for a post halfway down the page...

What page?  On the iView site?  On the DAM site?  Can you supply a link?

Peter -- where would I find the "Folders to Catalog Sets" script?  I couldn't find it on the iView site.

Dan -- an f stop is an f stop with the same light.  If you can't supplement the lighting in the gym, the best you can do is use a faster lens and shoot wide open.  I've had similar issues when trying to shoot ice hockey in non-professional rinks -- uneven, dim lighting.  You might try using on-camera flash to pump a little more light into the scene and help freeze action, but under those light conditions, it's never going to look like Sports Illustrated.
