I set off to do something that I think will take an hour and now it is the next day and at least that amount of time has passed, but I’m getting closer although feeling a little frustrated. This is how these things sometimes go.
I wanted a photo for the Belon Shawl and Scarf so I can publish the pattern before we have an official photoshoot. So I’m all dressed up to go out to an anniversary dinner last night so it seems a great time to get a photo. I get posed, photos are taken, then I remember that I need them in RAW format. We stop, the camera gets adjusted (this is a new camera) and we get back into position. Mitch is quite good at this and can tell me how to pose because modeling is not something that I am all that good at. We get great photos and he downloads them (at least that process has become easier) and creates a Dropbox file for me. I can’t remember my Dropbox sign in and I gave him the wrong email. We decide to just go to dinner and I’ll solve that in the morning. Done.
Now I go through the photos, and choose the ones I want to look at. Go to open them and, Photoshop isn’t able to open that format. Remember. New Camera. So I go to get the patch. Get the wrong one, doesn’t work. Get the other one. Need another file. Download that and install it. The other one doesn’t work. Mitch comes in and I tell him my issue. He finds the right patch–or at least this one installed. Almost an hour has passed since I sat down to look at the photos. Yippee! Victory!
Whenever my husband is the photographer I get one of these.
