    If I hit the + reply to thread button one more time when replying to a post.....

    Its very very annoying. I sit there and type out a reply. My eye sees the big + REPLY TO THREAD button at the top left of the window (as that is what I am doing), rather than the small one on the bottom right with white text on a pale blue/grey button, and I lose what i have typed. Now I will...

    SmugMug replacement that won't penalise me for printing in the UK?

    All I want to do is syncing with an online site that also allows printing in the UK. I have been waiting for SM to introduce UK printing for a while. Now they have, but I have to upgrade the to the top level account to get access to it! just not worth the money. I keep looking and looking and...

    Choosing a preset changes my profile

    I am going through a B&W phase at the mo. Just noticed that when I use one of LR presets it changes the profile from the Vivd one I love so much back to the standard Adobe one. Not sure whether LR3 did this or not. Does this mean I have to resave each preset as a user preset to make sure it...

    LR CPU Pegging

    I run a Pro with two quad core cpus and dual screens on a Nvidia 8800GT card with 512MB. I have posted before about all cores pegging out when using LR for things like cropping. Sure, turning lens control off helps a bit, but it still is a major PITA. Well, it looks like tonight I have just...

    Which new Nikon for me?

    I have a D300, which I am very happy with. The only thing that has me even thinking about a new camera is getting better low ISO performance. I will use upto 800 without problem, but don't like going above that, unless I really have to. I am nothing more than a happy snapper, who has some nice...

    What CM level do you calibrate your monitors too?

    What CM level do you calibrate your monitors to? Just thought I would do a re-calibrate as I have upgraded to Lion. Noticed that the value it came back to me for my brightness was only 50 CM; now I do have a fairly dark room but this seemed too low. So I tried again with a value of 90cm, but...

    PS: Adjustment layers, masks and not working

    Howdy, I am dipping into PS to help out with some images. I *thought* I knew what I was doing, but something is going wrong. I am adding an adjustment layer for levels, then switch to brush and start to paint on to the image, using quick mask to see the area in red. Then, when I go and...

    Scanning advice

    Hi, I have just taken delivery of a shiny new Epson V700, with the purpose of archiving someones photo collection, ranging from B&W from the 30s up to the 80s. I have tried using the Epson TWAIN driving inside PS CS5, but that just crashes too often. So now I am trying the Epson as stand...

    Epson V750 Pro scanner, or A.N. Other

    Is this good enough for doing a shed load of scans for someone? They are after very good quality, so the price isn't an issue. Couldn't seem to find any new products, that model is 2 years old!

    Wacom Large cheap at amazon

    I was just about to go get a medium from Amazon, only to discover that the sale has moved from the medium to the large. The large is only £15 more than the medium. I know that everyone says that the medium one is the one to get so there is less arm movement, but I cann't help but want to get...

    I thought that I understood about dpi

    But it seems I don't! I use LR for my photos, but export certain ones to iPhoto.I have been exporting at HD resolutions, at 1''DPI, as I thought the largest I would be displaying would be on a TV. I have now just discovered the Order Print feature in iPhoto, and want to make the most of...

    Keyword List - Filter for two keywords?

    Thought that Google would have given me the answer for this, but not.I cannt seem to find a way to add two keywords in the filter box, it seems to only want one; have tried commas and AND. Does this mean I have to use one keyword in the filter box, then use the text bar at the top of the grid...

    Spiking CPU

    Hi, For the last week or so LR has been quite sluggish for me.For example, when I am in developer, and choose crop, I get the beachball for a second or two, then when I try to grab the handle to change the crop, I have to wait another 2 or 3 second for it to become active, so I can move it...
