    uh huh... yeah, that figures...

    If it makes you feel any better, my copy of CS3 was paid for, registered, turned out to be grey market with a US serial number, Adobe chose to be total arseholes and it indirectly ended up with me blowing up an expensive PC powerpack and accidentally formatting my backup drive while trying to get the authorisation crap working. I hate them with the power of a thousand suns.

    Guess you could make RAW adjustments in lightroom and then export as TIFFs into Photoshop?

    @ oldhat: I expect you've already considered this, but just in case you haven't, here's a link to the GIMP. It's free and they're not Adobe, both good things as far as i'm concerned. Still, all far too complicated for me to be bothered with.

    I use Faststone Image Viewer to convert my RAWs.

    Mr George, bearing in mind your tendency ' to dump unwanted emails into the trash bin' , would you mind dropping me a line (my contact details are about somewhere) with a view to explaining the usage of Faststone as a RAW converter?

    First some pigeons from way back when...

    Suitably Cooperative Pigeons

    And of course, some skips.

    Ambushed!

    @ roadscum;

    It's pretty simple. Just right click the image, pick "save as.." and choose the format you want to save it in. I dunno if it can read the proprietary RAW format Oldhat seems to be using, but it may be worth looking into.

    @Oldhat, update your version of Camera Raw. You can Download it from the Adobe website for free and it won't arouse any suspicion. If that fails to work, there is a way to convert your files from NEF format to DNG (Adobe's proprietary RAW format stands for digital negative, NOT Dolce and Gabbana as my fabulously gay friend thought) You should not have to do that but it is an option that will not change much. Hope you sort it out.

    I don't know if they've fixed this, but you may need to drag a new copy of the plugin (Camera RaW.8bi) to your Program Files>Adobe>Adobe Photoshop CS5>Plugins>File Formats folder, then restart PS. I used to have to do this for my old tower but don't recall whether i did this time around for the new machine.

    Here's a shot taken a couple days ago.

    @FC: I love the "okay" sign he's sorta giving. "Don't worry!" he says. "I'm a professional!"

    @J0nCarp3nter : He put 20 blades in his mouth, added some cut pieces of floss... then pulled everything out, all tied together.

    Hello Whitechapel !

    The summer is coming to an end, it is time to start doing stuff again and now ...

    Lakrima Nocturnae [ 2 / 2 ]

    TIME

    Mauvaises herbes

    More of my stuff at Les Fonds du Tiroir (and yes, bigger picks) and it is official now :

    Monday is ... the day were I publish at least one drawing on my blog with a maximum of seven ...
    Friday is ... the day were I publish at least one photography on my blog with a maximum of seven ...

    I started an online comics also, but I need a little advance before starting to publish it and this means that there will be less drawings on mondays than photogrpahies on fridays ...

    Of course, everybody is welcome ...

    Don't do it! Comics is that mine cart scene in Temple of Doom except there's no escape from the flood at the end of it... Because it's a flood of INSANITY.

    @ William George -> Thanks for the advice, but I'm already caught in the cart and I'm drowning in insanity. So I wrote the story a few years ago and now I've got to do it. It is a simple and straight story and it will be the occasion to test if that kind if insanity pleases me and finally Temple of Doom is not the worst Indiana Jones movie ... and anyway I've got this load of stories that I've got to tell somehow ... there is even a huge adventure in which the hero is a ruthless pigeon !
