      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.

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
