    Finding it very hard, it doesn't help with dark rainy days and Christmas does it?

    New website

    I am currently up to my neck building a new web site. It’s a bit of a job when you have to take content that has built up over years and then reorganise it, prepare it and get it all into a new site. its not going too bad, but it’s rather like taking on a difficult project with Photoshop when you don’t have experience of the software. The menus that drive the site are extensive. Added to that is my guru is in the UK, so when I get stuck, he’s asleep and when he replies, I’m asleep I may be gone for some time 😀

    New website

    Yeah, nothing stands still for long at all and you have to keep using it to keep up. Adobe reversed the Transform tool operation in PS and I just can’t shake off the fact I don’t need the shift key when resizing. My web sites are still down, but my guru in the UK must be waking up soon, probably a server reboot needed

    New website

    I think I may have broken the new site and also the current one as well. While working on the new site trying to work out how to set up discounts it all went south. Both the new site and the existing one went down. A coincidence? Not likely seeing as they both occupy the same web space. Let’s hope my guru can flick a switch and it all pops up again. I will tell you something. This web creation stuff is like a secret society and I’m not sure they have let me in yet 😇

    I suppose not. When your whole life changes, it takes some getting used to.

    DNG Files

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I now think that there are arguments for both, with none of them highlighting any significant issues. I think that with good file management organisation and a robust file naming convention, it does not really matter if they are RAW or DNG, so will stick to RAW

    DNG Files

    A few years ago I did think about saving my nef processed raw files to DNG, but after some thought I did not. It was a format that never seemed to be very popular, I now save all processed files as a TIFF format and for print.

    DNG Files

    You can set the import via Bridge to Dng and it seems to remember the setting, so it’s easy to set up and have the dng option for the future. There doesn’t seem to be a downside, so you could ask why not?

    DNG Files

    Yes I thought at one stage Adobe were slow to update ACR when new cameras came out and suggesting users convert to DNG, in the hope it would take off. I think the latest software, I can't remember if it is Luminar or ON1 that can open any RAW file without developing specialist software with help from the camera manufacturer. This means you can read any RAW file from New, present or future cameras.

    DNG Files

    I’ve thought about it, but never actually placed the convert option into my importing procedure. I have raw files 20 years old and have never had an issue and Photoshop Creative Cloud seems to make any issues less likely. It’s one of those things perhaps that is a great idea, but no one seems to have bought into it to the level Adobe thought they would. As far as I am aware there is no down sides to it.

    Site Maps

    I can understand a site map as a plan of what to do, (as in the link above) but can't see how a site map would help a visitor to a website when they see a link to the site map in the options. I've never used a site map link on a site and bet not many others have either. I am just about to embark on my third and final website build. That's why this topic came up at all. I've taken the plunge for a number of reasons, none of them financial. One is that I need an SSL certificate because Browsers are about to start making life difficult for those who don't. The secure part of our shop is the Payment Gateway, not the website, but needs must The support and development for our old shop/site (they are one and the same ) is just not there. It appears to be dying so I may as well get off the train before it goes over a cliff. I also need a purpose and something to do in my retirement and this fills that need. So far I have been playing around with a demo site to make sure it will do what I want and in the next day or so I'll pay the money (gulp) and get started. The good news is I do have a great guru who is an expert on this stuff and it's he who gives me techie help and hosts my site. Not this forum, but the main web site So, watch this space.
