You need to install Canon's EOS Utility in order to download the pictures directly from the camera. Canon DSLR cameras do not appear as generic logical drives like some other manufacturers' DSLRs. EOS Utility is included on the disc that came with the camera. Updates are downloadable at Canon's website (under the software tab, rather than the drivers tab), ...

You didn't specify an operating system, but for Linux and friends, geeqie can toggle between normal and grayscale display at a keystroke (Shift+G by default).

OSX-only options G3 / F3 Godox/Flashpoint has released an OSX version of the G3/F3 updater. However, at this time, it only supports updates for the following devices: V1 for Pentax TT350-P and Xpro-P AD400 Pro Flashpoint R2 Pro II For all other devices, or from Linux, however there are a few different ways you can do this, if you don't want to, say, ...

All changes in Adobe Lightroom are temporary until you export them. With that in mind I would use Lightroom and select all and convert to grayscale then work through the images as desired. Once done I'd switch them all back out of greyscale with an undo function.

If you don't mind the rest of your UI being in greyscale, you can switch to an all-greyscale display in OS X without any extra software: System Preferences → Accessibility → Display → "Use grayscale" This will obviously prevent a side-by-side comparison of a greyscale and colour image, but you can at least quickly toggle the display mode. Unfortunately I ...

For JPEG images, you could use IrfanView. It has an option to load images as greyscale. Go to Options menu, then Properties/Settings, then JPEG/PCD/GIF. Then tick the box for Load as grayscale. This setting will be remembered for any images you load. You can use a command line option to specify a different INI file for the settings, so you could set up one ...

You should not need the EOS Utility to connect your Canon to the Mac. Three things to check: 1) EDITED PER BELOW: The Canon 350D (Xt) had a setting on the Setup2 menu that chose PC CONNECT vs PRINT/PTP. If the camera is set in PRINT/PTP, it will not connect to the computer correctly. This is not the case with the Canon 400 (XTi). 2) Check your usb cable ...

Most of the OSX GUI applications for manipulating exif information rely on Phil Harvey's exiftool, an open source perl library and cross-platform command-line tool for manipulating EXIF information. HoudahGPS, Geotagger, and GPSPhotoLinker all rely on exiftool to write EXIF tags. And since exiftool can write to Canon RAW files, these apps are likely to be ...

I have had quite good success with houdahGeo, in particular with Aperture. For this you open the photos you want to geotag from houdahGeo (you can open photos already in your Aperture Library) select them and then geotag them using either a map or a GPX file. Then you can reverse geocode and write the data back to the original Raw files. HoudahGeo then ...

The general advice not to use sRGB as a device profile stems from the fact that it is not meant to be a device profile. When people start doing colour management, they often get confused about all those profiles: as a minimum, one needs at least two, and sometimes four or more. Drilling that sRGB is not a monitor profile helps to clear things up a bit. ...

Let's step backwards a bit and answer some "unasked" questions first: What is a color profile. What is a "monitor" profile and hardware calibration vs a "Factory Profile." What is color constancy. (I will make the assumption that the OP has not calibrated his monitors using "expert mode" nor a hardware calibrator.) WHAT IS A PROFILE ICC profiles are ...

The workaround I use is assigning ProPhoto profile to the target and temporary assignment of the same profile as printer profile. In that case colour management does nothing.

So on the bottom left you have several different viewing options (right above that bottom row where all your photos are flagged). There's one with the number 1 in a box, one with the number 2 in a box, and then one with 4 boxes next to each other (and then arrows and other symbols if you keep going to the right). Click the symbol with the four boxes. This ...

You can always right click after selecting the photos and flagging them that way. I don't know of a shortcut unfortunately.

As far as I know, this is the only way to get the Photos application to work with the RAW file at all. If you use the edit features without doing this, you are working with the JPEG file instead of the RAW, with all that entails.

I had the same issue when I bought a second hand Canon 10D EOS. Photos would only load on my old Pentium 11 MAC through a card reader, but nothing worked on my new Mac. I then had a brainwave and trawled the net for an SD to cf adapter thinking there must be such a beast. There was and it works perfectly. The adapter fits straight into my card reader and ...

With the CC 2017 update, Adobe has moved the installation location of Photoshop -- it's now normally found in /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CC 2017/. Unfortunately, this also moves the location of the Plug-ins folder. You could try manually moving the Nik plug-ins yourself, but the easiest solution is probably just to download and re-install. (The ...

I just installed my old Spyder 3 Express on MacOS Sierra with Spyder3Express_4.0.10-1_Installer. Installation works fine, the problem comes during internet product registration. This is what I did: 1 - Disconnect from internet 2 - Run Spyder3Express installer 3 - choose a manual product registration 4 - enter the Spyder 3 serial number when asked 5 - the ...

I use a Mac w/ latest OS X. Had same problem w/ PS CC 2017. Partially solved the problem by uninstalling the Nik suite (uninstaller downloaded from Nik website) and reinstalling the Nik suite (download from Nik). The result is I can now use CEP 4 and SEP 2 (two of the favorites in the suite) in both LR and PS. AEP 2 also appears work. Define 2, Sharpener ...

Thank you for your answer. I investigated and searched a bit and came across the fact that colorimeter's filters can age, especially those with gelatin filters in the lower price segment (see http://www.color-management-guide.com/how-to-calibrate-monitor.html) So it becomes logical to me that Datacolor doesn't support older devices. Sad, but unavoidable :-( ...

Datacolor's knowledge base article for Spyder3Express seems like it hasn't been updated for 10.11. It lists Minimum System Requirements Mac OS X 10.6, 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10 Based on the list of OS versions, it looks like the list is updated for each version of the OS when they update the software. The lack of 10.11 (and the error message you're seeing) ...

You can use Mac OS X's built-in Preview application to combine PDFs into a single PDF file. Also built-in to Mac OS X is the ability to export any file as PDF (either in the File > Export As... menu if available, or in the Print to PDF exporter in the Print dialog). For each of the 10 photos that you want to submit, in Lightroom, Print them. The system's ...

I'll give you a little description of both, ColorSync is Apple Inc's color management API for the Mac OS and Mac OS X. The ColorSync selection enables driver-based color management. Selecting ColorSync tells the printer driver to specify one of its device profiles as the destination color space. Vendor Matching is the program's color management. The ...

A script to create folders from read metadata combined with a time based trigger (see https://superuser.com/questions/126907/how-can-i-get-a-script-to-run-every-day-on-mac-os-x) could do the job. See exiftool to get the metadata

I've discovered that this is all solved by upgrading my OS to 10.10.2, Yosemite. I did that on my MacBook Air and all DNG converted files show up in finder and open in Preview, it didn't matter whether they were RW2, ORF, or NEF. The problem was obviously that OS 10.8, Mountain Lion, couldn't preview the DNG thumbnails from the RW2 and ORF formats. Thanks ...

It sounds like your print settings in OS X may have been modified to an undesirable setting. Try re-adding the Epson XP 820 printer to OS X, naming it something different than your existing one, and try printing with that one. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners. Click the "+" under the list on the left to Add a ...
