You could try Name Mangler - - just download their trial version

or Automator can do it if you want to do it that way. Select Files & Folders from the Library on the left, drag Ask for Finder Items, then drag Rename Finder Items and choose Change Case, Extension Only and to: lower case. But I'd still check out Name Changer to see what it can do.

Hello Roelof,

have you ever tested Atomic View from AntZero?

On the Mac side I can recommend Superduper. Also check out Carbon Copy Cloner and Chronosync

Hello Jim,

I was in a similar situation like you about 2 years ago. My recommendation is to:

1.  buy "The DAM book" from Peter
2. Read it at least twice
3. If you are like me I was overwhelmed by all the info and I read it a 3rd time and bought the DVD and watched that twice
4. I followed the advice from Peter and did not work on the past but started with the new pictures. Once I was sure what I was doing I sorted out my "history files"
5. Regarding files names - the key for me is that irrespective of how many files you have you need a numbering system that is kept in order by the computer, the simplest way is YYYYMMDD_#### - I do not need any names of photographers in it because I do not have a company where you want to see already from the filename who took the pictures.

Hello Jim,

I can not help you regarding your GPS question but I have a question for you. I understand that it is easy to find "Aunt Suzie" if you have it in the filename but what are you doing if you have on the same picture:

"Oncle Charly"
"Nephew Sam" and
"friend Joe"

are you putting them all in the file name?

I just upgraded from a Power Mac to a Mac Pro and am reinstalling software.  The iView disk I installed is iView Media Pro 3.1.2  Is there a newer update that I can download, and if so, where do I find it?

Hello Leon,

iView or Expression Media as it is now called was bought by Phase One. You can download the latest version here:

I have iview media pro 3 & expression media 1.0, when I went in to rotate, all I see is to just rotate, I do not see these 3 options



I do not know EM 1.0 - I am talking about EM 2.0 SP 2.

Hello Sossity,

you have 3 options in EM to rotate a thumbnail - see User manual page 26

1. "Soft" rotation - will rotate the thumbnail but NOT the file itself. This is done with the rotate buttons in the far-right side of the Header
2. Lossless .jpg rotation - will rotate the original file
3. Precision rotate - in the Image Editor

I do not know your OS but on the Mac side I recommend:

Cores, Quads, Chips!  Apple has a refurbished Mac Pro for sale with two 2.4GHz chips and I am trying to determine how it compares with a new Mac Pro with a single, faster chip.  Here are the two models I am considering:

Refurbished Apple Macintosh Mac Pro 2.4GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon
Two 2.4GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Westmere" processor

New Apple Macintosh Mac Pro Quad-Core
One 3.33GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon “Westmere”  $3514

Can anyone tell me definitively which of these machines would be best suited for Photoshop work?  I spoke with one Apple sales rep who suggests the 8-Core is best.  I have an email out to another Apple contact for his opinion.

Thanks, Mark Weidman

Hello Mike,

why don't you switch to EM2? I have used it with SL without problems.
