    Any MS Win10 batch scripting experts here?

    FYI, freefilesync offers macro expansion of the date/time - FreeFileSync I don't personally use it for that, but I have no doubt that it will work. I use it to do file sync's to external HD's one direction, and then sync multiple external HD's to have copies. It works for these purposes...

    Using sub-seconds or sth. similiar in filenames

    Back to the original poster's question, I played some more with exiftool From a CMD line, this worked on my Canon 5dm2 files converted to DNG: exiftool '-filename<${DateCreated}-${SubSecTimeOriginal;$_.=0 x(3-length)}.%e' -d "%Y%m%d-%H%M%S" *.dng You may need to add "\" in front of each of...

    Using sub-seconds or sth. similiar in filenames

    I spent some time trying to do this at one point, and ended up instead doing one of two things. Either appending the original sequence number at the end of the YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS-SEQ#, which I did with exiftool against DNG files. And later, when I discovered that some camera raw files don't...

    Help with geotagging photos - Bad Elf GPS and iPhone, iMac

    Reasoning behind my decisions to use an external unit. Originally, when I started doing this in 2008, the options for oncamera units were expensive or didn't exist. Phone programs worked, but put a huge drain on the battery. Now almost 10 years later the first reason is still a problem for...

    Help with geotagging photos - Bad Elf GPS and iPhone, iMac

    To answer your original question How I did it 8 years ago - Technical Tips – Photo Preprocessing Workflow with Geotagging - I used a command line tool to merge tracks from a tiny gps logger that stored info in GPX files. In the past couple of years, I've swittched to using GeoSetter. I use...

    file naming (Victoria ;)

    I'll add a couple things from my experience. I use bridge import from camera, convert to DNG, and do the renaming there. I then can load lightroom and import the files on the filesystem into the catalog. I do this because I find using bridge far quicker than lightroom to do multistar passes...

    file naming (Victoria ;)

    YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS-SEQ.dng - sorts nicely, easy to parse. Sequence number is 3 digits if autogenerated, 4 digits if you can pull the original sequence number from the raw file. (DNG convertor could pull sequence from Canon raw files, but couldn't from Olympus ones for some reason). Even if you...

    How do I Emulate these settings?

    Thanks for the welcome, I'll admit I do most of my edits in ACR via Bridge, but the behavior is the same in Lightroom (had to verify for this post), and I used Lightroom sometimes for other features. The highlight/shadows works, but future adjustments can modify the compressed DR. The curve...

    How do I Emulate these settings?

    For the original question: First impression, you want to compress the dynamic range. You can do this with curves in lightroom (or ACR): Develop Module, then Tone Curve, then you want to add three points (to the already linear level) Roughly: 25/25%, 50/50%, 75/75% Select the 0 point (on the far...
