Hi Carolyn, As you know, WE ARE NOT CHICKEN! We'll get more than a little mud,or tear or sprained back and bumps and bruises for those pictures. Where is your brave image of the day BTW?
Carolyn, My Pc crashed this morning. Have you been having any recent problems with PS7?

Connie, C'mon, anything makes a good picure with the right light and angle. YOu do a great job !!

Hi Shirley, THanks so much for the comments again.



Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

Very nice, Donna. Great refection and bold color frame. What's with these PCs? Let me know if I can help--I've just been through a hard drive repacement, e-mail is #106561

Carolyn M. Fletcher level-deluxe May 26, 2019

Mine is there someplace..Right around yours..It's a sunset.
No problems with the PS7..
Bummer about the crash! Mine has been okay lately. Knock on wood.. #106599

Leanne M.E. Boyd May 26, 2019

Nice. I never get ideas like this either. I like your perpective, colour, composition and reflections #106649

Donna R. Moratelli May 26, 2019

Carolyn, When I said that we wern't chicken, I was talking about the photojournalistic stuff that we do that most people don't know about. I was asking you to post the train derailment!!

Hi Leanne, Thank you very much for the comment!!

Hi Murry, THanks too. I just may email you with a few questions. My PS 7 seems to corrupt quite often and doesn't remove all parts when I remove the program and then it doesn't function properly afterwards? Any ideas on that problem?? #106727

Mette Vendelboe Allison level-classic May 26, 2019

Another good shot with very good graphic appeal! #106728

Kathleen Clemons May 26, 2019

Cool shot, Donna. Love the inclusion of the lock. #106752

Donna R. Moratelli May 26, 2019

Hi Mette and Kathleen, Thanks very much for the comments!

I am suprised to see the two of you commenting so late in the day!! The three of us usually are on the site before 6;30 AM. #106785

Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

Donna, before you do anything make sure you have a proper s/n to register PS7. Mine was an upgrade and I had trouble finding my last full version number and Adobe was not going to help me until I found it. If you've got that what I would do is:
1-Make sure no other programs are running.
2-Go to the control panel and then add/remove programs and remove all copies of Photoshop that might be installed.
3-Insert the PS7 CD and install re-install it.
4-Shut the computer down.
5-Start the computer up and everything will be fine (I hope!).
6-If you're still having problems--go to the Adobe web site ( I think) and see if there are any upgrades for PS7 and your operating system (like Windows ME, XP, etc).

Good luck!! #106801

Donna R. Moratelli May 26, 2019

Hi Murry, I am still having problems. I can't get the entire program out of the system. I don't even know if I write it to zero's and reload the system that it will be gone. I don't wan't to loose my digital images in my zoom browser anyway. I would never take a chance.

DO you use zoom browser for conversion?DO you know how to save the images right out of my images and keep them in their raw form. It's taking forever to do them one by one after converting them to tiff and putting them in my current files. There must be an easier way. Do you know or are you aware of any way to save the raw files directly out of the zoom browser program.

Thanks for all of you help, Best, DOnnarae #107807

Murry Grigsby May 26, 2019

I have a USB CF memory card reader and just copy the files form the CF memory card to the DCIM folder on the hard drive (C: in my case) after I've burned a CD. I use Bibble to convert the RAW files (sometime YarcPlus but not often). Adobe has ARC that runs from within PS7 to do the conversions ($99) and Capture One has a lite version of their converter ($99). In these you can batch convert.
I think ARC will be part of PS8 so I've been waiting to see how much the upgrade is and maybe kill two birds with one stone. Try looking on-line at the Adobe site in their knowledge base and see if anyone else is having and maybe have solved this type problem. #107816
