  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    It sounds to me like you are looking for either Aperture or Lightroom - they are aimed at digital captures, but they don't mind if it's from a digital sensor or a scanner.

    Both products are a mixture of basic image manipulation (crop, rotate, adjust contast, colour etc) and image management - they allow you to add tags to images, such as people's names, titles, group them into multiple folders so that you can quickly find them by location etc.

    I'd start with these products if I were you.

    Cesare, not too sure what I need but knocking about ideas on PFM before I reach for the credit card sure seems a good idea to me.

    After looking through the Epson specifications it is down to V600 or V700.

    V600 about half the price of the V700.
    Uses ICE for reflected and transmitted images.
    Can do batches or 4*35mm.

    V700 about twice the price of the V600.
    Uses ICE for reflected and transmitted images.
    Can do batches of 12*35.

    Twice the price but is it three times faster?

    Still thinking and wondering.

    V700 can do sheet film up to 10 by 8 as well. Might be useful one day?

    You might want to have the most important of them printed if you want to ensure longevity. There is no guarantee that what is the current norm for digital storage will be the same in 10 years time...

    Still thinking, After Shot Pro although still quite new (but related to Bibble) is imho worth a look but still a bit hard to find useful thoughts on the product not authored by the makers.
