Re: $200k+ Replacement chase cars for U-2

Paul Unfortunately alot more to it than that. Otherwise they would have been cleared for air transport already. You could put them on a linked pallet but then you are risking damaging the cars with the restraint methods. Not only that the cars will be classed as dangerous good regardless if it has ...

Re: $200k+ Replacement chase cars for U-2

Would they not do the same as the RAF done from Cyprus and send them over on a space available basis with the proviso that if anything went wrong your car was on the ramp and it was first off if it had to lose weight.But they probably never had to leave the ballast in the boot for the movers/crew. ...

Re: What format do you export your pictures to?

I have the option, but have never, ever used LR. I tend to organise my folders etc. through File Explorer. Plus I don't make the same adjustments to every image, I always process individually and never try to process all the images from a single event in one sitting. There's something rather appeal...

Re: What format do you export your pictures to?

I don't use LR at all, just Adobe RAW converter and PS. I keep the original RAW files and yes the Tiffs are 16bit, but converted to 8bit if saving to Jpeg. Fair enough, makes sense to even me then :P. (Sorry, another 'but') If you are PS through the Adobe subscription thing, then there is no reason...

Re: What format do you export your pictures to?

Mark, sorry I edited my post a bit, but I didn't change my conclusion. True enough Paul, for me personally I prefer to save all my work as a Tiff as I can go back to it at anytime and still have a large file size to work with. I only convert to Jpeg for any gig work that is being published or if I ...

Re: What format do you export your pictures to?

I've been exporting to Flickr as Tiff's for a few years and the quality seems perfect regardless what the Flickr bods do to the image while its uploading. Mark, I wouldn't argue. Did a test (TIFF: 8bit, sRGB, no compression) and I see no meaningful difference (file size or quality) in the full size...

Thanks all, so far - do you notice a difference in quality when exporting as TIFF?
They save as much bigger file sizes James and Tiffs aren't Lossi files like Jpegs. Flickr can handle Tiffs too which makes sharing to social media or here dead easy.
