1  Software Discussions / Lightroom / Verifying file integrity from Lightroom 3 on: April 23, 2011, 12:58:29 PM
Hello,

I have noticed some random file corruption from my catalog's DNGs. The troubling part is that I have only noticed this when I need to open up the file. In other words, the previews look normal. Rebuilding the previews from lightroom does not seem to revela any issues either.

Can someone tell me if there is any kind of systematic verification method available to run from lightroom, whether via a plugin or otherwise? I have been searching this forum and others for the past couple hours and cannot seem to find anything.

Thank you.

Lucas.

Thanks Peter,

I suppose that answers it then. Such a shame as I adore the quick look feature in Leopard when none of my cataloguing software is open, but this has made it all but useless for my needs.

Cheers,

Lucas

I see, but I didn't have this issue before changing my machine and therefore upgrading to Leopard. Could Preview and Quicktime have gone backwards in Leopard?

Thanks,
Lucas

Hmmm, bummer I'm on mac.

Yes, it's strange. Even when I update the DNG preview in ACR and close the file, I immediately lose the preview in Finder. The image just looks like it did coming out of the camera even though I've made it a BW etc... If I open up the file however, the image appears as it should.
Thanks,
Lucas

Hmmm, but shouldn't I be able to at least see the correct DNG preview (even if the saturation looks off)? At this point, it looks as though my image adjustments on my DNG files non-existent even though they have embedded jpg previews.

Thanks.

Hi all,

I've recently upgraded to a Macbook Pro and Leopard. When I click on a DNG file in order to see the small thumbnail (or even in Quicklook), my preview looks as though there is no color management going on with the OS. In other words, the preview looks highly saturated. This has also been happening with jpgs that I have created for posting to the web, yet I have embedded the sRGB color profile. When I bring either fo these file types in color managed apps, they appear properly. Any thoughts?

As to the question about what you are giving up, I'm pretty sure that most software cannot take advantage of the multiple processors with anything like the efficiency that they use the primary one or two cores.  If you want some extra speed when back at the desk, get a full sized eSATA to use as scratch drive for the studio.

Peter,

I'm not sure I completely understand this. I currently have a 500GB 7200RPM SATA drive that I added to the second bay of my tower. It's half full, but is used for files only (though I do access them a lot as most are working files). I know I could put it in an enclosure in order to hook it up to the new notebook, but would it still serve as scratch disk if it's connected via Firewire or USB?

As for when the time will be to pull the trigger, I'm wanting to wait until the new machines come loaded with Leopard. However, if that does not happen within the next 2-3 months, I will just go ahead with the purchase.

Thanks Peter, I'll have to give it some thought for the future of the G5.

I know it is hard to quantify, but does anyone know what kind of power/speed hit would I be taking by going with the MBP versus the tower?

Thank-you for your prompt reply Peter. Any specific reasoning behind this?
Also, what "good use" could I put my current G5 tower to once I get the new machine?

I have searched through the forum for this information, but didn't come up with anything so forgive me if this is repetitive.

I am looking to upgrade my main machine and would welcome any advice on which direction to take. I currently run on a 1.6GHz G5 tower(first generation) with 2GB RAM, and will soon upgrade to either a 15" 2.4GHz MBP with 4GB RAM, or a 2.66GHz Dual-Core MP tower.

I am in for a substantial speed bump regardless of which machine I go with, but I am quite tempted to go with a laptop this time around. I do a fair bit of traveling and end up using my spouse's G4 PB more than I would like. If I hook up the MBP to my alive-and-well CRT for "desktop" use, will I be missing out on much power from the tower? I do fine-art photography and so my masters tend to be anywhere from 150MB-600MB in file size.

I currently run CS2 (will upgrade to CS3), iViewMedia Pro 3, and Lightroom. I run all my image files off of external drives (all SATA), my working files being run off of a 500GB 7200RPM Seagate Barracuda.

Thank-you,

Lucas

Hello,

Here a link to my own photography blog which I use mostly as an online portfolio:

Any feedback would be welcome!

Thank-you,

No problem. I will also be adding to my external collection also, so it's good to know!

Would you say that disk warrior will also do all the tasks that a program like Macaroni does?
