  1. Dear Betty, Great wisdom learned the 'hard way.' We thank you. Cheers, Flo and Paul
  2. Hi Mark, We agree. Until we have the opportunity to actually 'run' some of our slides using a PHOTOSHOP, we won't know if we have success or not. We joined a PHOENIX CAMERA CLUB and hope to have a better insight on PHOTOSHOP face to face with other members...next meeting Nov. 16th. Again, our thanks. We've noted that much info has been passed between other ALAMY CONTRIBUTORS on the topic who have worked PHOTOSHOP. That is good. Cheers, Flo and Paul
  3. Hi Mark, We have opened and began to get 'acquainted' with PHOTOSHOP. Your note that you 'just tried it and it can do the TIFF to JPEG conversion' is great news. We have to 'work' through things you have already mastered. I applied for a Phoenix Camera Club and will attend such. Perhaps someone with infinite skills in this arena will take pity upon this codger and provide some serious 'hand-holding' to get Flo and I to get us up and running. We still won't know if any of the recommended tools will convert our very large TIFF to JPEG and do so with sufficient quality to get ALAMY to
  4. Dear Brian, We thank you for your time and efforts in helping us with our goals. cheers, Flo and Paul
  5. Hi Harry, Sadly...Flo and I are it. Our family members use their super-duper telephones. None have any digital cameras beyond simple point and shoot (we have 2-of the Nikon's simple cigarette-sized camera's as emergency cameras) and I don't remember any family member's cameras having changeable lens. It didn't occur to us to investigate local camera club/college campus environment including TEMPE CAMERA. Flo and I agree we can use some serious hand-holding from digital photographers who walked this 'conversion' from TIFF to JPEG AND appreciate that they, too, were beginners. Great r
  6. Hi Harry, No. When we retired from the workforce, none of our family members or friends worked in the computer field must less technical support in any industry or photography. Our work computer usage focused on our specific job requirement...no PHOTOSHOP. Cheers Flo and Paul
  7. Hi Brian, Flo and I swim just fine...just not in this pool! We are not stupid, just ignorant of the topic. Flo and I completed COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLLEGE (CGS&C) and I taught COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLLEGE for several years to men and women all of whom had degrees and advanced degrees ((doctors and lawyers) and were commissioned in the various Army disciplines, the subject of leadership through the rank of Colonel. First 'teaching skills' Instructors learned as Lieutenant Colonels was our student body-Captains and Majors-did not have the same level of understanding of a s
  8. Hi Marianne, Yesterday, we took a bold step and GOOGLE'd PHOTOSHOP. Slow going for us. We found the portion of PHOTOSHOP that addressed 'conversion' from TIFF to JPEG and things got slower as we had to GOOGLE trade-terms we did not know. We will probably email PHOTOSHOP's CUSTOMER SERVICE and quirey them about what we have and what we need in this 'conversion' process. On-line text from PHOTOSHOP tends to 'talk over our heads' which adds to our frustration. We haven't looked at books yet. Home for us is Phoenix, AZ. When we bought the ENVY, we opted for the maximum Terabyte of
  9. Hi Mark, We thank you again. Our computer is: ENVY; BANG & OLUFSON Operating system: WINDOWS 10 Yes. The ENVY has the ability to 'read' our dual layer DVDs at it created them. At present, we are reading and replying to folks who have taken time to recommend software and or operating systems to work out issues of 'converting' huge TIFF to JEPG file in our ENVY hard drive. We started by looking at PHOTOSHOP on-line and we are still muddling through that source...very slow for us as we often have to ask GOOGLE what the trade-term means when the HOW-TO on PHOTOSHOP using 'trade
  10. Dear Chuck, Apology accepted. We are painfully aware of our shortcomings. And, using 20-20 hindsight of some 10-year ago, knowing what we know now, things hopefully would have been different. If you have mulled over 'converting' your large collection of Kodachromes to make them useful in today's high-speed, constantly changing digital world, and knowing your computer, where would you begin? PHOTOSHOP is an ALAMY CONTRIBUTOR frequent recommendation and while we know-of the software, neither of us have actually seen it work and whether the software is readily learned by us. Our w
  11. Hi Mark, We agree with your recommendation to "... find a friend or someone to do it for you." From all of the recommendations from ALAMY CONTRIBUTORS to 'remedy' our TIFF to JPEG issues, we are overwhelmed. 'Trade-terms' in this arena are 'new' to us so we have to 'read-up' on what is being recommended. Use of PHOTOSHOP is frequently recommended as a very useful tool...so, we will GOOGLE PHOTOSHOP and read the details...we can also quirey PHOTOSHOP technical folks for their input. As for our participation with the ALAMY FORUM and uploading images, most of our efforts to-date are pl
  12. Dear Marianne, We thank you for taking time to reply to our original question. Your personal reflections on how you 'worked through' technical challenges is most encouraging. We are currently applying to ALAMY for the 'vintage/archival' program while we work through recommendations from ALAMY CONTRIBUTORS like yourself. Then, we consistently note from other ALAMY CONTRIBUTORS the use of PHOTOSHOP and similar software to 'convert' TIFF to JPEG and not go broke. There are more than 6-pages of replies to our original question...responses are overwhelming; some CONTRIBUTORS appreciate the
  13. Dear Chuck, Your words are rude to say the least! We asked for assistance and explained our short comings...your post can best be summed up as CRAP! Considering you have nothing nice to say...stick it in your ear!
  14. Hi Mark, Okay. To answer your first question...the JPEG images on ALAMY came from the picture file in our computer hard drive that were transferred to ALAMY's upload. The JPEG images in our hard drive were downloaded from an SD/Compact flash card from the Nikon D810. The camera will store in JPEG as well as TIFF concurrently. We no longer set the camera to store images in TIFF. That is how we got 1,100+ images on ALAMY. That is not our problem noted in our original plea for help. We have 1000s of images scanned by a PACIFIC IMAGE system for TIFF. The image files are huge...150-25
