  5. Looks likely to be the ticket thanks Wim, but, like John, I baulk at paying $399 for an adapter particularly for a lens with a used value of probably less than $500.
  6. Thanks for taking the time to respond! Not sure that it should be complex or requiring a new process to find a fix, as I have used this method for years without problems. I am now wondering if it is related to the particular directory that I have used to store the photos, rather than the series of choices from within PS . I'll do some testing using a different destination. Another possibility, I guess, is that I have inadvertently changed preferences or settings within the program, although when I look at Preferences Files I can't see anything that might affect this.

  8. I've just wasted a few hours of work because the PS action that I wrote to save files to a directory included the name of the file used to set up the action, so it saved every file with that name, i.e. I ended up with only one file saved; the last one to be processed. I've used this type of action hundreds of times before. It flattens the layers, converts to 8 bit and then saves as a JPG in a designated directory using the current file's existing name. I don't know why this particular action is including a specific filename within the save command. I've tried to rewrite the action (several times) using my normal procedure, but each time it includes the filename in the save (as) command. I must be doing something wrong, but, having searched the web, cannot find the answer. This is CS4. Any ideas?
  9. Thanks gentlemen, useful suggestions. I particularly like the cunning trick of setting the aperture on a Canon body!

  11. Post your positive results here :)

    Very encouraging Doc, especially set against the tales of woe elsewhere!
  12. I have a small collection of Canon EOS glass, of which my prized possession is a Sigma 100-300 f4. It's a good lens, very sharp from 100-200 on full frame, and I think that it would probably do well on the smaller sensor of my Sony a6500, but I need a converter that will enable me to set the aperture from the camera. Sigma make an adapter, but when asked if it would do the job their response was "The MC11 is designed specifically for our Sigma Global Vision range of lenses so we cannot guarantee functionality with the Sigma 100-300mm F4. Sorry" (Pleased to get a prompt response from Sigma UK, even it was not the answer I wanted!) Autofocus would be nice, but I can live without it, aperture setting is essential. Actually a fixed f8 would make the lens usable. Anyone have experience of this or other products that might do the job?

  14. Agreed, but I wonder if the artifacts are due to what Flickr has done to the image? Do they exist in the original? Have to say it looks sharp enough at the size presented, and, given the circumstances of the shot, within my tolerance band. Would need to see the full size image to be sure.
  15. Scans of old photos

    The archive route still exists. As has been pointed out above, you need to let Alamy see some of your work and they will give you access if they feel it appropriate. Images uploaded by this route come with a health warning to the customer "This image could have imperfections as it’s either historical or reportage." So, if your scans are good enough it could be wise to use the standard method. I have generally uploaded scans from 2.25 inch square negs as standard, but for my 1970s 35 mm stuff, I used the archive route. Like Chuck, I never use the scanner software to remove dust bunnies, as it definitely damages the image. My scanner is a flatbed Epson Perfection 4990 Photo.
