    External storage -- go for NAS (QNAP 439)?

    Hi Peter, I was out of town and off-line. Hence my late reply: thanks a lot for the pointer to the drobo. Regarding the NAS, no you don't need an extra DNS. You can either work with IP addresses directly or use the NAS'es built in features. Above mentioned qnap has at least DHCP and other...

    External storage -- go for NAS (QNAP 439)?

    Hi Peter, Thanks a lot for responding -- particularly as the subject does not seem to fetch too much attention around here (a bit to my surprise). I am fully aware of the differences between directly attached storage, NASes and SANs. Again thanks for taking the time to point things out here...

    External storage -- go for NAS (QNAP 439)?

    Hi everyone, I am considering getting a NAS for data storage at home. I am thinking about the QNAP 439. Has anyone used it or similar devices? It has two gigabit ethernet ports. One I could connect to the PC and one I could connect to my MacBook Pro. So I wouldn't even need to get an...

    Books or tutorials on LR Development Module

    Thanks Robert. Have updated the the list in Lightroom Tips & Tricks with Scott's book. By the way and just for the record, I do like a bit of marmite on toast every few months or so -- I am not addicted, though. Joerg

    Books or tutorials on LR Development Module

    Hi Denis, Sure. That's probably one of the reasons that there are many more readers of books than writers and also only a few real killer books. Also the writing style of one author and their way of explaining things might work well for some readers while it might not for others. Cheers, Joerg

    Books or tutorials on LR Development Module

    Hi Paige, Thanks for your comment. I think I myself might be prone to feel a bit like you there too on occasions. I guess the whole thing also is about seeing things in photographs and realizing what one sees -- a bit of an analytical thing, if you wish. And that's hard to learn. It's probably...

    Books or tutorials on LR Development Module

    I was wondering whether someone has recommendations for a good book or tutorial for the LR development module. I have been mucking about with it on an ongoing basis but my impression is that I am not really getting the best out of it because of my (hopefully current) lack of skill. Had a browse...

    Have you abandoned Ps in favour or Lr?

    I don't have PS and am in the process of finding out whether I can do without it. What I could use in LR from time to time is a dodging/burning facility. That's the only thing I have been missing so far. I would like to give HDR a go some time soon or multiple shots with different focus...

    How to revert back to the original image in Lightroom

    Hi Brad, I understand that there has been a long beta phase in which Adobe carefully listened to the users. I'd therefore assume that most people are happy with the way LR is working and so I wouldn't have made a change request. Thanks for encouraging me to do so, though! :) Might it after...

    How to revert back to the original image in Lightroom

    :) Well, I wouldn't be able to do that. Would I want to, though? I mean, is that particular situation a real concern or are you teasing? I'd have thought that if I let people as far as looking at my LR screens I'd be fine with them catching a glimpse of the odd history list item. Cheers, Joerg

    How to revert back to the original image in Lightroom

    Hi Victoria (and Brad), First of all: I am not really missing functionality. It is rather that I find the decoupling of the history list and the picture state counter-intuitive and still struggle a bit finding good reasons that justify it. What for me breaks intuition here is that I can clear...

    How to revert back to the original image in Lightroom

    Thanks for responding, Brad, especially as the point I was trying to make did not seem very clear. You got it in a nutshell, after all ;): You say: I can hear your words and I can see it in the application working like this but this separation (clearing out the history list yet leaving the...

    How to revert back to the original image in Lightroom

    Sorry to warm this thread up but Sue's question and the answers to it do show something: the way the history list can be cleared separately from undoing the manipulations on the photo are not intuitive to everyone (and I dare say they are outright and big time unintuitive). I had the very same...

    Lightroom Catalog...1, 2, or many?

    It really seems a bit of a pity that us users here have to outsmart the underlying LR software implementation for keywording, no? Many users seem to be getting caught tangled up in problems with keywords. Seems to be a bit of a weak point. What could be done? Are Adobe aware of this? I can't...

    Which Calibration System?

    Have used Spyder2. Am happy with it on my Mac (laptop screen). Have tried to calibrate two screens on a dual-head-PC (Win XP Pro) with it and it was hassle. It would not properly recognize the second screen without some jiggery-pokery I dug out on the web somewhere. But I think this device is...

    Keywords: CAPITALS or lowercase?

    That'd make a cool addition to your sig, no? :) I like the third forms best. Isn't this also the proper way for headings and captions: capitalizing all words but insubstantial ones? No matter what size, I personally find all-capitalized words extremely hard to read. Cheers, Joerg

    'ello from Darmstadt, Germany

    Hi everyone, Only now spotted the introductions here. So thought, I'd quickly join in. I'm glad I found this site and I have to say it seems one of the most organized places I know on the whole web. I do a little bit of photography in my spare time and have moved away from iPhoto, particularly...

    Laptop screen recommendation

    Thanks a lot for the reply. I am not going to rush it and am monitoring the rumours regarding the MacBook pro releases... ;) Regarding the pixel density I was mainly wondering how the high resolution option works for photo work in particular and whether it is just too small for that. For fine...

    Laptop screen recommendation

    My Apple TiBook is getting a bit long in the tooth and I am considering upgrading some time this year. For the 17" MacBook Pro, they offer a 192'x12'' resolution option. Now my question: has anyone used this? Is it any good or is it too small and should I consider the normal 168'x1'5'? I hope...
