hi, just got a new XT2 and went out to put it through its paces. I have an XT1 and an X100S. I have two questions relating to LR imports:
1. I shot with card 1 as raw and card 2 as jpeg. I'm able to import the raw files with no problem into LR, but when I put in the Jpeg card, the files are greyed out and prevents me from importing these files. Is there a setting on import I need to be aware of so both sets of files can be imported?
2. I'm likely showing my ignorance here, but when I import the raw files, the film simulations I tried out disappear. Do the film simulations only apply to jpeg files? Or is there a setting on import I need to activate to retain the characteristics of the various film simulations?
Many thanks in advance!
Hi. I'd welcome some advice on what I need to acquire - or put it another way - what would you acquire if starting from my standpoint. Thanks in advance.
Ideally I want to acquire software to allow me to do both RAW processing and photo editing. Ideally it would be one programme, but if not then one as pixel editor and one as RAW convertor. I use Nikon D750 and Fuji XT10. Both these will probably be shortly replaced with XT2, but I'm waiting for initial bugs to be sorted before I take the plunge. Although I am slowly moving to FUJI, I will still need full frame Nikon for some years, so both Bayer and X Trans Raw conversion will be needed. I have always used JPegs up until now, but have recently retired and want to start really getting the most out of image quality.
I have always used Windows as an operating system and don't really want to change. I'd also rather buy software then pay rental to Adobe. I have a PC that runs Windows 7, but recognise that for general usage reasons I will probably have to upgrade soon, let alone for phoptography - so that need not be a restriction. If I have to buy a new PC, then so be it.
So - what software would you acquire, given the above - without worrying about any PC OS version restrictions?
