  1. Synchronising Images to Music - on the Fly

    Thanks for the well-presented video Barry. Very clear, Very nicely done. I tried that method long ago and sometimes use it here and there. For now, I will stick to my preferred methods, but your video could be very helpful to some people. I just don't know how to recommend it. I wish it had a less pejorative tone since people other than forum users, designed to receive the negativity, might have benefitted. Maybe rework it?
  2. Monitor Recommendations (SOLVED)

    These days I consider how people are likely to watch my show. Nowadays, it is likely to be on a 4K 42' - 65" TV. I check my shows on a 55" 4K TV as well as a Dell monitor. A large screen TV doesn't look and feel the same as a screen on a desk. I want both to work, but what "sells" is the look and feel and immersion of big. For prints, I use a different thought process entirely.
  3. 3 Questions - Finding photo location

    Thanks, Lin. I am thinking of about locations in the sense they are used in Adobe products and some other software. For example in Lightroom, you can... 1. select a photo (in PTE that might be in the timeline) and right click to get the option of opening a new explorer window at the photo file location. 2. Also, you can right-click and get the option to go to the location the LR file hierarchy. IN PTE that would translate into activating the location in the PTE explorer Window. If that is still not clear, I can make some screenshots to explain. Thanks for the suggestions about conversion as well. I wish I could capture full resolution. Perhaps 1920 x 1080 is good enough.
  4. 1. What is the best way to convert an EXE to MP4? (Where I do not have the original PTE file) 2. How do I go to a photo location on disk from within PTE? 3. How do I go to Library location from within PTE?
  5. Beat matching feature

    Years ago I bought P2E entirely because it produced really cool automation. Through that process, I discovered a new fabulous realm of creativity. previously I flipped through photos with whatever computer browser automated what was once photos in an album, which automated photos in a shoebox, which automated...you get the picture. Not long ago Igor gave us the ability to auto-spread images along a timeline. Great idea! Then I went in and adjusted them for any of 100 reasons. Beat-matching is just that same idea. Has anyone used Audacity "Beat-Finder" for such a purpose?
  6. Beat matching feature

    We must consider if getting old causes us cling to the way things were as being better. My mom didn't trust calculators for a long time and checked the machine by hand--she didn't trust calculators to be better. I remember being on the edge of having to know log and trig tables only to realize that vastly more and better was to use a computer. Now, better art can be created and enjoyed by automating the mundane to focus time and energy on the creative. I am conservative by nature, but strongly in favor of progress. Slower is both worse and better.
  7. A Little Demo Of Some PTE Features

    You are amazing, Lin, fun, creative and most interesting.
  8. Reminder About STYLES For New PTE Users

    Good grief. You are amazing! Thanks.
  9. Memorial Video Pricing

    Much of my work is a labor of love. Most people have little idea what a project is worth and probably wouldn't pay that much. If you want to be paid fairly, decide your overhead, your expenses and how much profit you want and divide that by the hours it takes. If a complex project takes me 40+ hours (I am experienced and fairly quick) of photo processing, planning, storyline, themes, subtleties, and putting it all together, editing, editing, editing, cutting some more, letting it sit, getting opinions, editing and finally delivering the polished end result--then the cost would be 40X$50/hr /(far from riches) or $2000 USD. I think some projects are worth far more than that to the recipients. If you have a group of families willing to divide the cost among themselves, or a business that can justify the cost, then maybe you can get that kind of price. Otherwise, consider it a labor of love. My work is for private humanitarian and various other documentary causes and my pay is indirect--but probably not close to commensurate for my labor. I occasionally do odd shoots, weddings, engagements, business conferences. Those can pay well, but honestly, I wouldn't do it for a living. The ones I do are most extraordinary so they don't usually pay much. But I am not doing it for me. I am doing it for others and the payback for them is priceless. Private Beef: Adobe Creative Cloud has been a mess. I keep getting locked out while traveling in remote locations. 5 Times in the last couple weeks. "Your Access Token Is Expired." Adobe can fix it every time. Thanks, Adobe! Just a day late and a dollar short. I love Adobe products but will happily abandon Adobe if something better comes along. Thankfully, PicturestoExe is WONDERFUL! Thanks, Igor!

    I think I will pick up a copy as backup. Yes, Photoshop just failed to open again a couple days ago while traveling. Adobe knows the problem and can fix it and has multiple times for me. But Affinity will be a modern, developed software that works when PS fails and I don't have to wait until Adobe can fix it. Adobe will remain my primary software, but if I can ever leave, I will. I have lost any loyalty to them due to their new system which fails to meet my needs.
  11. AUTUMN GOLD - new slideshow

    Excellent, like always.
  12. Serif Affinity Photo

    It's not that simple. It has to do with unsuccessful attempts to connect on weak connections while moving among multiple countries. If I could get 60 days that would cover me. I did once go about 75 days without internet (except one brief hour in the middle). PS was no problem during all that. Of course, I can think ahead and disable CC or log out--but I am always hoping it will work "this time." When it works isn't the problem. When it doesn't is. Yes, I have worked through this with Adobe. We have not worked out the secret recipe that exactly causes the issue--perhaps something is triggering the inability to verify what may appear like a new device--but isn't. We just don't know. We know work-arounds--but they are most inconvenient. Curiously, since changes have been made with the new CC and CC classic. I haven't had the problem. But I will be testing it with multiple SE Asian countries in the next few weeks. Maybe even Australia! I bet Australia works just fine. We shall see. Would be interesting to hear from users here traveling extensively in multiple rural S. American or African countries. [I know that the solution for some is to use a quality SIM-modem based travel router. But still, you have to have that Cell tower nearby!]

    And it would be useful as a backup for those several times Photoshop has locked me out while traveling and I could not get it to open until I had stable internet. Actually, I keep an old version of PS also installed for those occasions.
  14. Select Subject

    Newbees will never know how we once labored to select fine detail. There should be a built-in "levels" where newbees have to extract hair with PS2 before advancing to tools like this---just so they will appreciate what PS can do!
