This has bothered me for years, especially on laptop screens that have no hardware calibration option. Here's an instant fix: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse] "MouseTrails"="-1" Save that as a .reg, merge it and then Log Off/On. With mouse trails enabled windows uses a different render for the cursor which in ...

When you shoot monochrome as RAW files, the monochrome setting is just meta-data in the RAW file. The raw data from the sensor is still the same. You will only see the monochrome effect when you view the file in a program that supports the monochrome flag. Obviously what you are using to preview the images doesn't support it. The program from Nikon for ...

While shooting in B/W with RAW mode might give you a preview of how would it appear in monochrome, but when you shoot in RAW no matter what effects you have applied during shooting, it will show the raw data from the sensor.

The closest app which satisfies that list of criteria is Microsoft Windows Photo Gallery. It is a free application which supports RAW files (providing the codec is installed.) Tagging can be done by location and built in face detection. While the metadata is not stored in a separate file it uses the (formerly Adobe specific) XMP metadata system, which ...

The phrase you want to google for is "tethering" It can be wired or wireless. The cheapest solution is wired, you just plug in a USB cable (if your camera has a USB port, all Canon's do, so I assume Nikons do as well) between the camera and your laptop. Check the CD that came with your camera, there is probably a tethering utility on it. I know there is on ...

Personally, I use Lightroom for most of my cataloging. Between the ability to handle RAW files, keyword tag and rate images, change EXIF information in bulk, create online galleries and edit images in a non-destructive manner, Lightroom is really a great value for the money and I've used it for maintaining catalogs with thousands of photos taking 100 ...

The image has been rotated. Image in directory 1a is 4608 px wide, 3456 px high and has an Orientation tag of Rotate 90 CW. So it is a portrait picture that is in landscape orientation. If you look at it with a image viewer that has been told to ignore orientation, it will look like it is turned on it's side. The image in 1b is 3456 px wide and 4608 px ...

This is a problem I have come across and solved using other usb devices to connect to a virtualbox VM. So hopefully this will solve your problem. The solution is to set the number of CPUs in the virtual machine to only 1. You do this from the Virtual Box Settings for the virtual machine. Power down the Virtual Machine. Then in its settings select 'system' ...

Windows 7 is definitely capable of using different color profiles for different monitors. Manually setting a color profile (if your calibration software won't do it for you) for a monitor is done through the color management screen in control panel. You need to click on 'Add', then on 'Browse' in the screen that appears and find the created profile for the ...

Most likely you are using a Samsung Monitor. Heres how to correct it: open control panel type color in the search bar and click on the green color management link in the dialog that appears tick the box under your monitor name which says "use my settings for this device" click on the add button There will appear a list of color profiles. You want to select ...

I've never bothered with the Canon EOS Utility (except to change the copyright info in the camero, not that that is that big a deal anyhow.) I've had great success using Adobe Lightroom. Sure, it cost something but it is just amazing. If you can't get the EOS to work in emulation as AJ suggests, look into Lightroom. (Note, this won't help if you need ...

This has long been a problem in LR, and unfortunately it looks like Adobe has no interest in fixing it, as it has persisted from LR4 thru to LR CC. You may find one of the tips listed in this long thread helpful: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/725985

This setup worked for me. I set monitor #3 as my main display (select monitor #3 and check the box under the "Multiple Displays" section to "make this my main display"). Then drag monitor #1 below monitor #2. Now the primary Lightroom window is displayed on monitor #3 and the secondary LR window is displayed on monitor #2. The only catch, and it's a very ...

Make sure the parent directory is your current directory and you can use this command: exiftool "-directory<EXIF:DateTimeOriginal" -d "%Y%m%d/%%d" -r . Example, given this tree \f for the current directory, then running the above command, gives the end result: X:\!temp\test>tree /f Folder PATH listing for volume Data Volume serial number is ...

You didn't mention what OS you're using, but in a Windows Powershell you could do something like this: exiftool -filename -fileorder datetimeoriginal DIR | select -first 2 -last 4

I am using Kodak Digi Album pro and I'm new to this tool. Kodak Digi Album appears to be dead software. There appear to be no real references to the software in standard search engines. (Results consist mainly of references to this page and fake download sites.) Searching Kodak Support also returns no relevant results. Is there a way to convert my .PAB ...

Almost all in-camera settings that affect image adjustments are irrelevant when shooting raw. With raw, all image adjustments need to be controlled in your raw software instead of in-camera. The file basically contains the raw readers from the camera sensor without any adjustments. What this means is that if you're shooting raw and want monochrome, you ...

thanks to Mr. Romeo and User 35658 and Happy new year too all of you :) after a lot of experiments I figure out the problem. The problem where in Nikon Transfer Utility. I used to use it and I did't have any problem with it, but it seems like a corruption happened to the software and it affect all my RAW photos transfered from the camera to my PC. I ...

A quick search says that yes, the XPKeywords field is imported as Keywords: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/772784. That said, it's worth noting that the many "XP..." fields are not standard EXIF fields so I would not expect them to work.

There is support for the EOS-1D on Windows XP. Windows 7 supports running a virtual machine that can run Windows XP applications that are incompatible with Windows 7. You should be able to install the software for the EOS-1D on the Windows XP VM and then use that directly from within Windows 7. For more details on using Windows 7's XP mode, I'd suggest ...

This sounds like a classic failing harddrive. My first recommendation is to BACK UP EVERYTHING right now to an external hard drive. If this is the case, you will likely be loosing bits of data here and there from any old files on your drive. After you've backed up you have several options available to you You can: Review windows event logs and look for ...

As Pat Farrell said, you can use Adobe Lightroom 4 for tethered shooting. You can also use the Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 which will let you to control the camera remotely.

I don't know if you solved your problem, so I thought I would share what helped me. ICC Profile Version 4 is the default version for the X-Rite profiles. Unfortunately, it is not supported by all applications. This drove me crazy for a while because images that looked great in PS and Lightroom looked terrible in most other applications. Once I started ...

Cameras usually do not like other software modifying their files. Camera firmwares usually able to create files and handle their own file formats, but they are not prepared to be fully standards compliant. Most cameras are extremely sensitive to even filesystem changes on the memory card, done by a computer. Another error can be if you did not close your ...

Picasa Photo Viewer, which gets installed together with Picasa, has a simple slideshow feature with an alpha-transparency/blending transition effect. Note: Picasa Photo Viewer is not currently available for Mac.
