I would recommend any of the applications from this list at JPEGclub.org, which develops and maintains software for the Independent JPEG Group. They have a free piece of code called jpegtran which can do some basic transformations (like rotation) without re-encoding the image. Rotating images the "naive" way (rendering to a bitmap, reorienting the bitmap, ...

On Windows, go to the folder, and run this in a command prompt: 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 in the dir command.

Yes they can, but there are some significant caveats. Although they can be run alone, the plugins were not designed to be used as a standalone application. If you have the folder with the executable file (NOT the plugin file) for a specific Nik suite plugin open on your desktop and drag a jpeg or tiff file and drop it onto the executable file (NOT into a ...

You could use ImageMagick with the rotate option: convert image.jpg -rotate 180 result.jpg You should be able to apply this command to multiple files, depending on your environment.

You can use exiftool to remove the orientation tag: exiftool -Orientation= /target/dir/or/File Replace /target/dir/or/File with the files and/or directories you want to process. If run under Unix/Mac, use single quotes to avoid bash interpretation. To suppress the creation of backup files, add -overwrite_original. To recurse into subdirectories, add -r.

You can actually have them come out with proceeding zeros in Lightroom. When you go to export, find the File Naming category. From there, make sure "Rename to" is checked and hit the drop down box. Select the last option "Edit...". A box should come up allowing you to enter a formula for how files are named. For numeric sequences it should look something ...

On Windows you can do it without any extra software in TWO operations. Select the files you want rotated in file Explorer, right click and do "rotate right" (or left) twice. It will be done losslessly if the image permits (eg, the dimensions are not "funny").

Here is a modified version of Tomy's Python script. Differences: multiple raw extensions allowed remove jpg only if the pairs are in the same folder (avoid accidental removal of a jpg named like a raw file in an other folder) case insensitive #!/usr/bin/env python # Script: remove_jpg_if_raw_exists.py # # Description: This script looks in all sub ...

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 ...

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.

Lightroom 4 will look at GPS data and pulls Google maps to show you where you've taken your pictures and lets you search/filter by location, among other things.

Here's a Python script that moves JPG files when no corresponding RAW file exists. Useful on Mac OS X! 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(...

Booting into Windows using BootCamp puts you in the Windows OS and that uses the Windows Color System (WCS) to color manage the display. Mac OS uses ColorSync. Both OS's use seperate Display profiles which are calculated and applied in different ways. WCS using CIEcam02 and ColorSync uses the ICC v2 method. So to answer your question...yes and no. Yes ...

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 ...

I've personally been using RawTherapee on my Windows machine for light editing for a while now, and it seems good. Granted it's not Lightroom, but when it comes it basic adjustments without the need for catalogs, presets, virtual copies, etc... its pretty decent and does the job!

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 files ...

Lightroom is how I do this. It's fairly easy to drop a picture, or set of pictures, to a location on the map or to synchronize it with a GPS log from your phone or, in my case, watch.

ExifTool could do this, but the use of negative coordinates might make it a two step procedure depending upon what tags you want to use. XMP gps tags will take negative coordinates, but EXIF gps tags only accept positive numbers and need the directional reference tag to be accurate. First off, there would have to be some changes to CSV. The first row ...

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).

You can use xnview on windows, which has some batch mode processings and also, for a simple rotation of images, have the option to rotate images based on the exif data. Select all the images (even the correctly oriented ones! It will know they are already well oriented), "rotate based on exif" and it will do it (without recalculating the jpg, so with no ...

The question is very broad and probably beyond the scope of an answer here. Entire books have been written regarding points 1-5 of your question. It seems that all of that is really just a long preamble to what it seems you may be really asking: Why sRGB images viewed via the Chrome browser do not shift colors when I change the color space on my system to ...

As far as sorting files by time, but not date, I know of no file or image manager that has such a feature. However, it is possible to move or rename files into folders based on your desired parameters. The "standard" tool for processing files based on Exif data is exiftool. Normally, I would move files into folders based on the date images were taken: ...

but I'd rather import them properly, rather than copy them, to retain the quality. I don't know the answer to the Windows part of this question, but there's a fundamental worry you have here that I want to assure you over. That "import" dialog box you were seeing before doesn't really do any magic. It just launches a program like Lightroom or some other ...

No it shouldn't be a problem. I copy/cut all of my photos this way, the only time when you might have a problem is when you say rotate the photo and leave it on the card, then the camera might not be able to show the image in preview.

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 ...

JPEGmini. It's $20 for the full version, but you can trial it (as a test of quality) for free. The trial version (or, rather, the unactivated version) has a 20-image-per-day cap — no time bomb, though, so someone with different needs may never have to pay for it. The full version can recompress entire directories at a go. It'll take most large high-quality ...

This is now fixed in one of the recent (this week)'s windows updates. Just do a Windows Update, restart your PC as prompted to ensure installation, and try again. You will see that the issue has now gone away. Many people, including me, are reporting this problem. See Window 10 and Nikon D7000 dslr on Microsoft's support forum. It appears to be a problem ...

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 ...
