In your command prompt, go to the folder and run this: for /f "delims==" %r in ('dir /b *.nef') do del "%~dpr%~nr.jpg" 2> nul Basically, it goes through the current folder, runs through the .NEF files, and deletes the JPG if present. It ignores any errors if the JPG is not there. If you want subfolders, include "/s" (without quotes) in the dir ...

You can use any free (as in freedom) RAW processing software. I can recommend: UFRaw It is a stand-alone RAW converter. Its interface is different from many other RAW converters, but I find it quite good. It easily integrates with Gimp photo editor. RawTherapee It is more like workflow software rather than just a RAW converter. One may consider its ...

This just in: Microsoft just released Camera Codec Pack v.16.0.0652.0621, which is supposed to provide codecs to power Windows Live Photo and Windows Explorer for the following cameras: Canon: EOS 1000D (EOS Kiss F in Japan and the EOS Rebel XS in North America), EOS 10D, EOS 1D Mk2, EOS 1D Mk3, EOS 1D Mk4, EOS 1D Mk2 N, EOS 1Ds Mk2, EOS 1Ds Mk3, EOS 20D, ...

In general - switch to a one program solution like Lightroom. It gives pretty good results (I don't know how it compares to DPP though, but it must be at least comparable given its popularity). It will handle the import, tagging, sorting, labeling, and most of your basic edits to the photo all in one program without keeping multiple copies of the image ...

Canon bodies comes with Digital Photo Professional, Canon's RAW converter which has White Balance adjustments (as well as plenty of other settings as well). The downside is that it's not free, per-se. I'm pretty sure you need to have the original software disk that comes with your Canon body in order to use the updates which are provided on Canon's website. ...

Lightroom does this for selected lenses, or you can create your own profile if your lens isn't listed. This blog post explains how this works, both with respect to the built-in profiles, adjusting manually, or creating your own with Adobe's software utility.

A few of the free possibilities include: DCRaw RAWHide StepOK raw importer Scarab Darkroom Gimp DC Raw is kind of the godparent of nearly all the other free/open source camera raw converters. It has code to convert data from almost any camera that can produce a raw file -- but only a command-line interface. Most of the others are basically graphical ...

I'm not sure what you mean by 'cheap', but Photoshop Elements is under $100 online. You may also want to check out Canon's website for downloads. They seem to have all the software that would come with a camera available to download. I think Picture Style Editor should allow you to open the CR2 files, and it seems the full program is available for ...

No. it will not damage your card or camera. The worst case scenario is that the camera would stop reading the card and the solution is to copy anything important on the card to your computer and format the card in camera. I've been doing this for years with lots of different cameras and never had any problem.

The monitor profiles generated by ColorHug follow a cross-platform standard, so once you've generated one, you can use it under any OS. The ColorHug comes with a Linux "Live CD" which boots and runs the software without any need to install anything. It's really easy, but there are a few confusing things you'll need to figure out. If you don't have the Live ...

You are using Picasa. If you simply type in "Picasa Canon 6D" into Google, you will see that many other users have this problem. Why are you having this problem? Because Picasa does not support the Canon 6D RAW files. What can you do to fix this? Use the Adobe DNG Converter before opening up the files in Picasa. You could use something besides Picasa like ...

When you go into standby mode, the amount of power draw is very low, just enough to keep things in RAM. Anything else is shut off to eliminate power consumption and that may include your video card if it supports it (and it most likely does). So, what I think is happening is that when you wake the machine, the initial display is effectively what was in the ...

For image transfers, it should work in PTP mode (or you could use a card reader); you won't be able to remote-control the camera, unfortunately. To answer your edit, the problem is 64-bit support from Canon for older models, not necessarily the OS itself. However, on Windows 7 Professional, you could possibly run the 32-bit versions of everything in "XP ...

Create an empty Library From the Lightroom main menu, choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or Lightroom > Preferences (Mac OS). In the General preferences unselect "Treat JPEG Files Next To Raw Files As Separate Photos" This should be the default. Import all of your files (you can select search subfolders), telling it to move to a new location The JPG ...

Here's a Python script which moves .jpg files, if no RAW exists. Useful in Mac OS! import os import shutil raw_ext = '.CR2' jpg_ext = '.JPG' destination = '/Users/JohnSmith/Desktop/jpgs/' for filename in os.listdir('.'): (shortname, extension) = os.path.splitext(filename) if extension == raw_ext: if os.path.isfile(shortname + jpg_ext): ...

The issue you are going to face is similar to any database-based solution: the issue is ownership over a file and if two systems are trying to change a file at the same time. This can often corrupt a database for systems that are not designed with this concurrency in mind, and most systems are not designed with this in mind. As mentioned above, there are ...

It is now supported in the LR3.4/ACR6.4 update. Along with Canon EOS 600D (Rebel T3i / Kiss X5 Digital), Canon EOS 1100D (Rebel T3 / Kiss X50 Digital), Fuji FinePix S200 EXR, Fuji FinePix F550 EXR, Fuji FinePix HS20 EXR, Fuji FinePix X100, Hasselblad H4D-40, Kodak EasyShare Z990, Nikon D5100, Olympus E-PL1s, Olympus ...

One that I know of is DxO Optics Pro. I've used the trial version of this software, and it seems pretty good. Not quite enough additional value for me to get this on top of PSE at this point, but I was considering it instead of PSE for a while.

Answering my own question on behalf of a friend who showed me Geotag. This is a Java software that can show you any number of pictures on a map in a browser winder. No need to upload anything, it fetches the maps from Google Maps and uses a local http server to display them. So, it is one possibility that matches what I am looking for. It can show the ...

You can do this with the tethering features in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3. Another option is Nikon's Camera Control Pro.

I know that Lightroom 3 Supports camera tethering. It appears to support the D90 according to this list: Nikon D3 D3s D3x D90 D200 D300 D300s D700 D5000

I used to work for Gretag MacBeth (and later X-Rite when they acquired Gretag.) I've written code for color monitor calibration. Your calibrator is defective and it should not do that. Sadly, the color filters in the unit itself may not ever be able to calibrate your monitor. My i1Display will not calibrate my MacBook monitor... I would contact X-Rite and ...

The color profile used by Photoshop when Proof Colors is off is the one set on the Edit > Color Settings screen in the 'Working Spaces' section. The exact profile used out of the 4 listed in that section is dependent on the format of the image being viewed, with 'RGB' used for color images and 'Gray' used for black and white images. The 'CMYK' and 'Spot' ...

Thanks for the answers guys. You set me down the right path. Here's how to get exactly what I was asking for done. This is in Light Room 3. Select a photo. CTRL+K to enter the keyword editor. Type keywords (separated by commas). CTRL+RightArrow to move to next photo. The keyword editor stays activated. Type keywords. Repeat steps 4 & 5 until ...

The best way to figure out keyboard shortcuts in Lightroom is to hit CTRL+/ in any module. This will bring up the hotkey list for that particular module. It should be noted that each module in Lightroom has a different set of hotkeys, so make sure you learn how to use each module independently. For quick reference, though: CTRL+LeftArrow: Next Photo ...

My preference has been to use a card reader. I realize this is not really answering the question, but this is what I've done since the day I got my 20D. My experience is that transfer speeds are better. I never have compatibility issues. Programs just see the files are being in a normal folder somewhere. Using the Canon software just caused trouble.

I'd concur with the analysis you've done thus far. Adobe has added people recognition to Photoshop Elements 9; I wouldn't be surprised to see this added to Lightroom in the future. There is at least one solid plugin for Lightroom to support geotagging although it's a shadow geotag and not injecting it directly into the "main" GPS fields. While Aperture ...

You should be able to find a used Canon 20D or 30D for $250-350, or thereabouts, plus whatever lens you want. Although it looks like Lightroom can control the camera directly, it would probably be a good idea to make sure you get the original Canon software CD with the camera (that's not necessarily a given w/ a used camera). As far as the Nikons go, I've ...

Picasa has a Geo-Tag feature that allows you to use Google Earth to write EXIF location data. You get to see some small picture thumbnails on the Google Earth's map - it's nice to see photos you've taken while traveling to a certain area. I believe this is possible with pictures already containing EXIF location data - check out this link. This does not ...
