    Moving from Mac to Windows need help choosing

    To be fair, the screen does normally need to come out. Indeed you are able to set the boot disk outside and have an external SSD. I suspect that a large percentage of those 80% have not used a Mac or ever really felt the need to as they use Windows at work. If you need warranty work, Apple...

    Moving from Mac to Windows need help choosing

    I recently had to update my 2011 iMac to a more modern version - I wouldn't have done if the 2011 hadn't died. It ran from an external SSD and booted swiftly and was very happy with all the MS Office products, Lightroom Affinity Photo etc so wondering why your better spec 2015 appears to be...

    Yet another Lightroom alternative post....

    Personally I use PhotoMechanic 6 and find that intuitive to use and seems to do most of what you are looking for. As with any of the LR alternatives, it is going to involve a change in workflow - and PhotoMechanic is more about getting ready to edit, rather than editing.

    SSD and HDD ‘workflow’

    I use Photomechanic 6 to ingest files, renaming, tagging and delivering to two destinations on the way in.

    i Mac Virus protection pack ?

    Mac keeper caused me far more issues than it resolved. Avast free is useful. I use Gemini to control duplicate files.

    Conversely media streaming a okay for me. Just this bloody time machine backup That is driving me batty. The trouble with having too much time on your hands is that I get determined to make it work. I should open the window and launch it.

    Time Machine - only two days of backups visible since Catalina

    Thanks for this. I think that you are right about trying another drive and will give that a go. Out of interest, what drive do you back up to?

    Time Machine - only two days of backups visible since Catalina

    Okay so that didn't work! Still looking for an answer if anyone has any insight, gratefully received.

    Time Machine - only two days of backups visible since Catalina

    I think that the problem has been resolved. Either no one here is suffering the same issue or was able to offer advice on this so.... When I updated to Catalina it appears that the Time Machine file on my WD MyCloud device had been renamed to backupbundle from sparsebundle. I have no idea why...

    Processing RAW or JPG files?

    ...and convert to tiff for processing?

    Processing RAW or JPG files?

    I was wondering also if raw is overkill as the file sizes are much larger, then I decided that storage is cheap so why worry. I wonder if my initial question needs to come back to the age old “should I shoot in raw or jpeg”.

    WD My Cloud Home

    I currently have this and use it primarily as a network backup. Time Machine (if you use a Mac) seems to be problematic and only seems to allow access to the last two days of backups. It continues to work as a media streamer and allows iPhone backups without issues. Generally works well -...

    Processing RAW or JPG files?

    I think that was what I was doing and then purchased Photomechanic 6 and that made life so much easier - especially as I properly started using tags when ingesting.
