  1. I have replaced the router via AT&T three times now, router BGW310. Can you explain the "switch" please. I am unfamiliar with this router thing. Thank you for your input, I like to build to last, and I have always valued your thoughts and opinions for years now. You are truly priceless!
  2. Brian, could you tell me if I built this correctly? My systems usually last me 5-8 years, but the motherboard / ethernet port has failed now twice on the XPS8930 for me. I am thinking that within the year I need to replace this and want to be sure I have configured it properly to lasting the next 5 years at a minimum. Here is my link, I will also attach the tech specs on this. https://www.dell.com/purchase/cart/en-us?cjdata=MXxOfDB8WXww&cjevent=ccaf9c7e711b11ee819a52bf0a1cb828&dgc=CJ&dgc=af&publisherid=4286516&publisher=&aff=Capital One Shopping&affid=4286516&aff_webid=7882476&aff_user_id=379632a912614c9b914a5e3dbd0a8bc9&gacd=9684992-28463632-5750457-345576786-177846717&VEN1=12578053-7882476-379632a912614c9b914a5e3dbd0a8bc9-Capital One Shopping&dclid=CI_PqOHCioIDFV_t9QIdxD0Chg
  3. Brian, I am considering making a change from my DSLR to the Newer Nikon Z8. With my current system, will it be capable of handling the files? The mega pixels are 45, whereas right now I am at 16.2. This will be the last camera I purchase I am certain, I've had my D4 since it's birth, and still haven't had issues or problems, but I am feeling the need to step up to the times. I have another year before my support is void on my system, at which time I will purchase another yes, but need to know if it's going to be able to handle the file sizes. Please and thank you always!
  4. I figured something out... Thank you for your time! I truly appreciate it. I am not in a class right now, so we are good. Again, thank you.
  5. I am asking how to keep the base white in all of them.... It's not the photography or the technique so much as a editing nightmare. I've done all the above and wondered if there was a quicker, or better way of obtaining it consistently.
  6. Hi Damien, I saw the action you wrote for the jewelry question on changing the colors. I have one for you. I ask though please, you don't share this as they are for a client that has not viewed them and I can't let it out. I am using an AB400 PLM and bouncing light to the background and foreground (glossy white) however, leaving the settings exactly the same in camera and in RAW processing (wrote a preset for it), there is a difference in the grey / white bottom on all of them. I have used curves and only applied it to the whites, I have tried a gradient just on the bottom, and I have tried a solid color layer on soft light (white). I need consistency in these, and I am stuck at making this a quicker process. Here are two examples. One darker and one light more of what it should be. Thoughts please?
  7. Brian, could I please ask another favor? The monitor I received was defective, it had a halo / vignette all around the screen. I have to return that one. Can this monitor be suggested? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1645576-REG/dell_u2422h_ultrasharp_24_fhd_monitor.html Or show me another please.
  8. Oh I have more than plenty text prints... no worries there. We will see how it performs. I just hate to buy another calibrator.
  9. One last question Brian, my Spyder 5 pro will calibrate this correct? I really don't want to have to upgrade my calibrator again. Not right now.
  10. PERFECT ! I don't / didn't want a headache and don't need all the bells and whistles. I invest that more so in my computers. As always Brian, THANK YOU!
  11. Would this one do the trick, like I stated, I know that 4K is not your suggestion. https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-ultrasharp-27-monitor-u2722d/apd/210-ayze/monitors-monitor-accessories
  12. Yes I have a HDMI Port, and video memory is in the screen shot. If you don't care for the 4000K or the other that I listed I only want to go 27 inch and prefer to stay with Dell Ultra sharps. So your suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
  13. Currently I have a Dell Ultra Sharp 2414H and it's been amazing. I am looking to replace this and found these two 27 inch monitors. Can you tell me which you would prefer please. https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/dnk9 27 4K UHD https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/ds2n 27 Or do you have a better Ultra Sharp you would recommend. Thank you in advance for your time and help.
  14. It threw a couple of settings off on the system and PS. PS seems to be dragging a bit, but I am sure that will clear up with another update. Otherwise all three went well!
  15. Perfect! One went well, going to work on the other 2 tomorrow. Thank you!
