  1. Well thanks for all the recommendations but as the boss limited my funds I ended up with the following MBP: 2.6GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB GDDR5 memory 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm MacBook Pro 15-inch Hi-Res Antiglare Widescreen Display Did order 16GB of Ram from Crucial and will install a SSD drive later on. G-RAID mini to store my catalogs and back ups
  2. Planning on getting a Mac Book for doing editing while on the road. I want the 15" but which one would be best for photo editing. The 15" 2.4 i7 with Retina display or the 2.3 i7 with the LED-backlit glossy or optional antiglare. I will be running Lightroom 5 and Photomatix Pro with all catalogs stored on and external drive.
  3. So whats wrong with a pink elephant? I use to see them all the time when I worked with Dallas mainly on a Friday night for some reason Jokes aside Elsa thanks for your input I am still learning Lightroom 4 and my monitor is not the best quality. Hoping for a Mac Book Pro 15 soon just have to sweet talk my wife some more.
  4. Well here is my try at redoing my edit.

    LR3 RAW files

    Well thanks for all the good info. I think I will stick with my .NEF raw files as it seems a lot less work. And Dallas DNG stands for "Done N Gone" Hope ever one has a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

    LR3 RAW files

    So I broke down and bought a Mac Mini and will be installing LR3. At the moment I am watching some training videos on using LR3 and they talk about changing RAW camera file to DNG. How many of you out there go this rout. As I am a newbie at this and want to make my work flow as simple as possible. Currently using a Nikon 7000 and use ViewNX2 to sort pictures and transfer them to a external HD while on the road. The plan is to bring in the pic's to LR3 when I get home to another external HD which will be my work from drive. Any better idea's are more than welcome.
  11. Check out SRL Lounge they have a lot of tutorials on LR3 http://www.slrlounge.com Look in Post Production
  12. Has any one tried to run Capture NX2 on a virtual machine. I am running Linux Ubuntu 10.04 and would like to try Capture NX2 so my plan is to install a VM with WinXP or would NX2 work with wine. I have been watching some youTube clips on NX2 and like the way it runs and the thing you can do with it. Running Ubuntu 10.04 64bit with AMD 6 core and 8 gigs ram 1tb HD

    Missing Pixels

    Took about 267 pictures of my daughter and here friends doing a fashion show at her sleep over. Just what I wanted to do on my day off . Any way when looked at the raw images in Bibble I noticed that on a couple of the pictures (10) that there were missing pixels. Just a white square, no problem really as i just used the Heal function to fix this but would like to know what causes this. I was using D7000 with Nikon 35mm.
  14. Can't go wrong with AC/DC or Pink Floyd and Meatloaf. Dallas I had ADD once when I was young until my dad gave me the hand to the back of the head and volia no more ADD :yahoo:
  15. I currently use Bibble on my home PC running Linux Ubuntu 10.04. I find it a bit slow but then again my PC is about 6 years old. I also run View NX2 on my work laptop running XP (not a Windows fan :negative: ). Now i really like how View NX2 works and am thinking about trying Capture NX2 as i have watch a lot of you tube video's on Capture NX2, Lightroom and Ampeture and I find Capture NX2 does all I want to do. Being I travel a lot, I am looking at getting a laptop and am leaning towards the Apple MacBook Pro 15, or go with a Mac Mini with monitor(? suggestions) and keep using View NX2 on my work laptop just to view my raw files while on the road. :drinks:
