  1. Okay, it's full size when I open it, but it's hard to choose between two or ten itsy bitsy photos. So it's not a crisis, but it is aggravating.
  2. There's a folder in Bridge that has DNG files and the metadata says they're only 256x171. This is bizarre because I took them with a nice big Nikon. When I look in Finder they're the correct size. Why are they showing up so small in Bridge?? Not all the folders are like this, but all the files in THIS folder are.
  3. I don't think I agree. I've used Lightroom, Bridge, Photo Mechanic and Fast Raw Viewer and "best" is subjective. I cull for focus and FRV opens up raw files and zooms in faster than any of the others. It also has a tool you can toggle to highlight what's sharp in the image. Super useful and speedy to cull a couple thousand images.
  4. Have you heard of Fast Raw Viewer? It says it has a WYSIWYG histogram and it looks interesting. It's certainly fast at providing a histogram and 1:1 views so you can assess focus. https://www.fastrawviewer.com/
  5. Hi Brian, I've Googled this and not found a solution. Is there a way to turn off the iMac monitor and still keep the system running so I can just work on my external monitor? If I use ctrl+shift+eject both monitors turn off. Karen
  6. Think I can get away with this?
  7. Is there a way to fix the sticking up collar on camera right? I tried liquify and copying from the other side, but couldn't get it to work, mostly because of the zipper.
  8. Of course! I turn them off when I'm not backing up to them and always eject them first. My main EHD is a 4TB G-Drive with Thunderbolt and it's been great. I'll get two new 4 TB G-Drives to replace the ones that have died. I don't need to spend the extra for Thunderbolt, do I?
  9. I know EHDs fail. I expect it, but I've had two 3 TB G-Technology drives fail in the last year and I don't think they're more than a year or two old. Is this normal? And what do you recommend I buy as a replacement? I'm pretty sure my old MyBook drives lasted longer than these.
  10. If anyone else has the same issue, here's the solution that worked for my problem: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-menus-turn-white-mac.html
  11. It's the Wacom tablet that's causing the problems. They emailed me the latest driver because their website wasn't working right, but there's some incompatibility with with Photoshop. (The internet is nice in that whatever issue you have you can find out exactly how not-alone you are.)
  12. After a bit of googling, I reset all the preferences, restarted the iMac in safe mode and now I give up.
  13. Okay, my new iMac is up and running, RAM is installed and rendering videos is way faster, as promised. One little glitch though—CS6 is behaving badly. When I hit Q to go into quick mask mode, paint an area and then hit Q again, nothing happens. I have to either use my mouse to click on the icon or go up to the select menu and choose to exit quick mask mode. Same sort of thing with the brush tool and the clone tool. I can use them, but then cmd+z doesn't work, the [ and ] don't work to change the brush size and basically it just refuses to respond to anything except menu commands or icons. Any ideas what might be going on? I've restarted several times and my caps lock is not on. I don't know what else to try.
  14. Okay. What's the best tedious way?
