      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Best way to batch convert a ton of Raw Files to ..........

Recommended Posts

Calling all PS users. I usually convert my images one at a time for my favorite shots, but I want to go back and convert the others to JPG or Tiff so I can view easier and see if any others are worthy of saving. I found on way but it is slow. Any tips?

When I need to do that I select all of the images I want to convert in Bridge. Then go to Tools> Photoshop> Image Processor. When that opens you can save the files as Jpegs, Tiff or PSD and even apply actions to them. You can save them in the same location and it will make a new folder inside the original and save them there.

I eliminate Bridge (because I detest this program to no end) and just open the files you want to convert in Photoshop. In the upper left you see the button labeled "Select All" Click on that and all the photos will now be selected. Here is the cool thing if you want to make the same adjustment to all the photos make your changes, levels, curves, exposure whatever you want to do. Now click on the "Synchronize" button and all the photos will receive that treatment.

You have just batch edited your first shots! Lets say you open 10 files and you want to make the same changes to 5 of those images. Make your selection of those 5 by holding the control key and select each shot with your mouse. Make your adjustments and now you can sync just those 5. Make changes to your other shots and save them.

The "Save" option allows you to save them as PSD, DNG, TIFF, or JPEG. Here is where you can save as 16 bit PSD, TIFF, DNG or 8 bit if saving as JPEG (look at the lower left corner for these options). I like PSD as a file format its half the size of TIFF with most of the data and it is the format that likely will be around a while. This is a very fast way to save and do some global editing on your shots. As a high volume shooter if I didn't have these types of options I would spend all of my time in front of a computer!

Thanks Dan, that is kinda what I have been doing but it just seemed slow. I guess when you are trying to do a couple hundred shots at once it can be a little resources hogging. making the old pentium quad core with 4 gig of ram work for its money.

Yeah I hear ya Paul. Thats one of the reasons I shoot JPEG for all of my sports work. Even that little extra time and computer resources makes a big difference when you are looking at a large volume of shots.

Forgot to add Paul I run a relatively fast machine and I never select more than 100 shots at a time for any batch processing. You are right it is a resource hog! When I have over a 1000 to process I usually am running three computers, a desktop and two laptops.

I am actually thinking of building a server and workstations to help with all this and storage concerns. I have had as many as 10,000 shots over two days of shooting to deal with. This may be a workable solution.

    • I found a good deal on the Garmin panoptix ice unit on one of the facebook sites and made an impulse buy.  It was a couple hours away from me, so I had my buddy check it out and pick it up and so I haven't even had a chance to see it yet.  From the youtube videos I've seen they look like they could completely change how I fish year round.  Has anyone had a chance to use one and how do they like it?  I probably should have asked this question before I pulled the trigger!
    • You all should have seen the ice chips flying when Rickg Eyeguy and I started. It was a sight and the number of holes cut in a quick hurry was impressive. Let’s do it again
    • It was his first plays in two years. Not even hit yet Teddy will be fine. Don't worry Shurmur and Case will be in Cleveland next season . I have no problem if Teddy ends up being out QB next season but you never know. Next year’s free agents for QB will be nuts , not saying the big names leave but it's going to be fun to watch who ends up where and who spends money on some old arms.
    • Idk if I would use the winch rope, once that gets full of salt/chloride and sand I think it will get rotten.  I've been using winch rope on atv's since it first came out so I am fairly familiar and have broken a few of them.  I want to say I've seen a house with wide straps like seat belt material but I don't remember where.  The stainless steel cables are the best option besides going full hydraulic.  If I decide to build another one it will be hydraulic.
    • I'm not sure how good your buddies and family are at darts once they have a few pops?  But you may want to move the dart board to save your flat screen!  Just say'en!.
    • Are you going to finish the bottoms of the bunks? You'll be looking at the bottoms more than the tops.You're getting close, great feeling isn't it.
    • I retract the above statement 
    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
