    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.

    Upgrades Needed?

    I am very pleased with the new pc and windows 10, the machine is much more powerful and it handles some of the files witch are over one GB well. It was built for me by a local dealer well established shop.

    Beckham CD'S

    Barry. For some reason I always seem to get on better when I purchase your Disks rather than the download version, don't ask me why because I don't know. I've watched a few on Lightroom and Photoshop and I must say they are superb, and highly recommended. I have had some of your cds over the years but these are the best yet. Regards to Carol hope she is feeling a bit better. John

    Back Button Focus

    I went over to back button focus last year, it took a bit of getting custom to using at first. But now I would not go back to using the shutter for focusing, I can recommend you try it, I came across the set up with a wild life photographer in the USA. I use it on my D810 and find that the resulting image has improved.

    Photoshop CC. I have just tried to use the Healing Brush, the Spot Healing Brush, and the Clone stamp tool in Photoshop on an image as a trial. I cannot adjust the size of the brush on any of them, and I get a semi transparent section of the image where I click to use the tool. I am working on a new blank layer and windows 10. I would appreciate any help or advice from you experts, I have never had this happen before. Best Wishes. John.
