   Hi, Ian,

   I'm still running with CS3 too because I use LR for the most of my work and I rarely feel the need to send any pic to PS. However, I'd like to upgrade my PS before this new Adobe policy comes out.  Could you please let us up to date when/if you find something new about that?

   Hi, Jorge,

   I don't know which LR version are you working with, but mine is the ancient 2.0 and is very easy create new folders in the catalog and at the same time in the HD itself, just point the mouse over the folder (or device) you want to create new folders inside and click its right-button. A pop-up menu opens and so you choose "create new folder inside...". Simple like that. Pay attention because if you don't want create new real folders in your HD, only in LR catalog, so you have to create Collections in LR, not folders.

   Hope I have helped you,

      Thanks, Mike. I will look for that!

     Thanks, Peter.

    I used to apply Sharpening and Noise Reduction in PS but I think there is some different results in LR even using the same amounts to the same picture (and resolution) in both applications. I wonder if PS and LR use equal engineering models to the same tool.

    So, if I wanna get more experience to do that in LR, which book, website etc could you suggest to go deeper getting sharper images using only LR?

5  Software Discussions / Lightroom / Getting Sharpen images on: May 12, 2010, 11:30:45 AM

    About sharpening possibilities at LR in order to don't have to open some images in PS: 

   - Should I apply sharpening, noise reduction and chromatic aberration corrections in the master image to be archived? Or just when preparing it as a derivative file knowing which will be the final image dimensions and resolution?

    - How can I start choosing, at Detail Panel,  amount, radius, detail and masking numbers for sharpening?  And what about luminance and color for noise reduction?  Any special tip for chromatic aberration adjustment or just seeing the result? 

    - Even having applied sharpening in Develop, should I also apply sharpening output in the export window (that one that asks if it's for screen, matte or glossy paper)? Isn't it over? Is there any key to know when choose standard, low or high amount or it's a matter of exporting in all three options and choose the better?

     Good news! Thank you, John!

       I'm interested in this automation about Exiftool from LR you've mentioned. Could you please explain which are "writing" and "reading" XMP? Are you talking about camera exif  (that would be "reading XMP" ?) and metadata like IPTC and other fields we fill ("writing XMP" ?) or nothing to do with that?

       When your work about Exiftool is ready, let us now as soon as you can!

  Hi all,

  I know actually there is no way to import CMYK and LAB tone pictures to LR. But which are the probabilities to the near future? Can anyone give me some perspective?


9  DAM Stuff / Backup Strategies and Tools / Re: DVD+R multisession on: July 21, 2009, 06:14:12 PM

        Can you please tell me how was your experience with Roxio Creator burning multisession DVD+R? I'm looking for a software to do that in my Macbook Pro during trips as another backup strategy.

        Since last year I've been using multisession burning during all my workflow and I've never had any problem. I prefer this system than the buckets one suggested by Peter because in this way I don't have to wait for a full bucket to burn DVD.  I use that in my archive computer that works with Linux and is connected to my Ma tough an internal web.

       So, now I want a software to Mac to burn multisession DVD+R. Do you know if any application that comes with Mac can be used for that? Or can you suggest any software that can be freely downloaded?

      Peter, thanks for the suggestion. I will follow it.

       Thank you very much for the suggestion, Jayson (is it your name?). I will download and try it.

    Thank you for your very helpful explanation. I use Nikon since the first D100, always format Sandisk cards in the camera, and (for lucky!!!) never have seen this CHA error code in the display.

     I wish you solve your problems with Sandisk in your D2x!

    .... sorry, there are some misunderstanding words after my signature in the las post. I forgot to borrow something I would write and gave up...


      Can you please explain what is CHA? As english is not my language, sometimes I miss some technical expressions...

      By coincidence, just before I've seen your reply I was reading Rob Galbraith's site. My DAM Book second edition arrived my home this morning and, as I am engaged in the card reader theme, I went straight to this topic at the book and I've seen your suggestion.

      I understand your option of having a USB card reader as you use two FW drives. In my case, I think it would be better buy a FW card reader once  at the moment I have a USB 2.0 external drive to backup my laptop's downloads when I'm outdoor. Yes, I know I would have tree copies - that's what I have home, a RAID system with automatic backup and DVD auto backup also - but not already when traveling...  So, during trips I use to download files to my Macbook Pro and then copy it to my USB drive. That's seems to me faster than download files directly to laptop and USB drive at the same time.  What do you think about that?

     When I buy another external drive to carry traveling, should I buy a FW one to use in the FW 800 port while downloading thought the FW card reader connected to the FW 400 port? So I would download files from FW 400 card reader at the same time to laptop and FW 800 drive and then copy files from laptop to USB external drive. This way I would have the recommendable three copies, is is? The only thing I have to pay attention is to buy a FW 800 7.200 RPM drive, ok? Which brand do you suggest?

      I've never used Lexar cards, only Sandisk and never had problems with them. My mainly SLR camera is a Nikon one and I've always heard Lexar works better whit it.  Do you know anything about that?


? I mean I would have a

       Since yesterday I've been researching about firewire 800 card readers to use in my Macbook Pro during trips and I've found that Lexar and Sandisk ones don't work in my laptop 4-pin firewire 800 port. They were designed only for 9 and 16 pin. Is there any solution for there? Does an adapter works fine? Which one? 

        Besides Lexar and Sandisk, any other recommendable card reader brand which firewire 800 device fits on a 4-pin port laptop?

       I'd appreciate also if someone could answer the questions about Sandisk and Lexar cards use in Nikon and Canon cameras I've made in the previous post. And if I can use a Sandisk reader to read a Lexar card and vice-versa.

       Thank you,
