I may be a retard but... [Mar. 26th, 2006|02:20 pm]

I figured something out that has completely changed my attitude about the digital camera. This is a Windows XP thing, but maybe OSX has something similar going on.

1. Drag all your pics from your camera into a directory on your hard disk.
2. Select all your new photos, right click, and select 'Preview'
3. Preview is basically a slide show, but it has buttons to delete pics, and to re-orient them.
4. Delete the dogs, re-orient the sideways, and you're ready to upload to flickr or do your editing.

Before I was suffering through the browsers in PSP and Photoshop, which are both slow and annoying by comparison.

Sometimes the simplest things are the most effective.

OSX - use iPhoto and then plug camera in and it asks you to import them into a "new roll" - all gui.based.goodness. =)

Be aware that rotation operation may cause the EXIF data to be lost. I personally use the software supplied with my camera (Canon Ixus) for simple manipulations, it automatically preserves the EXIF data.

strangely enough, the Microsoft preview flips images without hosing the EXIF data. If you go to my flickr page you'll see that I'm a crappy photographer, who doesn't take any more seriously than I have to.

Maybe they fixed that since I last read about it.
