Very fine shot. B&W is perfect here, it simplifies the scene and makes it stronger.
Well spotted, a nice photo!

Hulyss, thanks for your advice.  I'll probably add comments to the exif data such as magnification factor, whether or not I used a polarizer or ND filter, etc.  And These notes, I'll either dictate to my cell phone or continue to use a note pad.

I hope to gleen from this, information which might aid in future analysis of what worked & what didn't.  I do enjoy printing but I don't (yet?) figure on attaching notes - I'll keep my notes digital, at least for now.  But maybe I'm over-thinking it all.

I meant to reply earlier. Some thoughts.

1. Have you checked the settings in Preferences / External Editing.
2. Is there a problem with Photoshop rather than Lr.
3. Are you using network drives.
4. Are you using remote support software.
5. I am not familiar with Superduper, but is this creating a mirror image of the disk and causing confusion to some apps as a result.

I import my images to Lr, take a backup of my images to an external drive, put the card back in my camera and format the card.   

For me,there is nothing worse than having duplicate images in my catelog, so I do not depend on Lr to manage this for me.

More importantly, using the same card for multiple shooting sessions and importing to Lr between sessions, leaving your images on the card is a high risk strategy.

I do not know what rules Adobe applies to determine what is a duplicate image and to-date have not seen anything published, so until I have clarity on this I would not depend on this Lr feature.

The printer is massive, robust, and looks really impressive - but it's not really that bad, still a tiny printer when you put it next to 24-44" LFP ;)

LFP = Large Format Presenter?

But can someone tell me how to select 20 files and apply or remove an attribute to all 20?  When I select them in the film strip and hit say the flag attribute, it only applies it to the first file and I have to hit the flag 20 times.

The default logic is that when you have one image in the central area (known as "loupe view" in Library) any metadata changes or adjustments only apply to that one image. Otherwise, people easily forget they have 20 images selected. So you generally switch to Grid view (G) to apply metadata to multiple images.

There is also an option to change the behaviour to "AutoSync mode" so that changes do apply to all the selected images. In Library you switch it on by the menu Metadata > Enable Auto Sync, though I wouldn't recommend it because of the above risk. In Develop it's enabled by a button in the right hand panel and I'd recommend it to some people, but not to others. It's the fastest way to process large numbers of images, but you do need to concentrate and be aware at all times of how many images you have selected. Some people can work that way, some can't.

Hand written notes are always a good thing especially for the configuration of your shoot (like a story board). Yes it is laborious sometimes but you can attach the note behind your print when you store it. There is numerous methodology but the best one is to not include electronics devices in it. Some use a pocket book but imho it is better to attach the note behind the print and keep a clear organisation of the prints (it is also easier to an external person to wander trough your work if necessary).

You can also build a redundancy by imputing this note in the exifs or the digital file.

Hello all,

First post, but i've been lurking for a few months  ;D

From a lot of opinion from this forum, I decided to get a Z3200. Been loving it and learning a lot as I'm printing. I've noticed on the last few prints i've done from the printer, the last inch of my print has not been printing. It doesn't matter if I feed the sheets or have a roll on the printer. The printer wasn't doing this in the past. The only work around I have found to do is to add an extra inch on the long side of the print, so that the printer will not print that last inch. I have recently moved the printer from one location of the studio to another part of the room. No lifting, just rolling the printer 10 feet.

I'm hoping it's just a setting I need to reset. I'm using the print drivers that came with the machine. Would a RIP have better control over the stoppage? When I first started printing, I was able to make an overall print dimension in Photoshop (i.e. a 24x36 print size) and put multiple images in that work size. And I noticed that the printer would print up to approximately .30" on all 4 sides.

Any help or advice on how to better diagnose my problem would be most appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this.


A RIP should not be needed to overcome hardware or driver issues!

Describe the OS, the application you print from, Z3200-PS or normal, the driver PCL3/PS3 you use.

If I recall it correctly there has been a thread here on a similar issue.

The normal print margins are 5mm for rolls, so the print page set in the driver (PCL3) will have 5mm unprintable at the edges and this reduced size will show in the application you print from. For sheets it is the same but at the trailing edge an extra 12mm can not be printed, a total of 17mm at that edge then. In the PS3 driver the print margins are already reduced in the driver itself so what you select is what you get as a netto print page.

In the Driver>Printer/Quality>Margins/Layout menu is the setting anything other than Standard? I only use Standard. In the Driver>Features menu the Remove Top/Bottom blank areas is not set?

Using Qimage Ultimate? and the Remove White Space at Bottom Page not set?

That sums up what I know of possible software setting issues right now.

Met vriendelijke groet, Ernst

Excellent! This was in The Times a while ago, on a similar topic.

I understand why all that's true. Anybody with a camera or a cellphone can do landscape. Landscape isn't threatening. It won't chase you, yell at you, or give you a dirty look. You can take your time setting up with a tripod instead of having to frame and shoot in a matter of one or two seconds. With landscape you can get out your composition manual and make sure you're following the rule of thirds and the other "mandatory" composition rules. You can stop down and shoot at f/22, making sure everything's "sharp." In street photography you have to frame and shoot intuitively, and in many cases you have to use zone focus, which doesn't necessarily result in a shot that's "sharp." Street photography is hard. Landscape is a piece of cake.

With respect, Russ, I think that's unfair on those of us (me certainly included) who don't understand street photography. I don't take street not because I'm scared of what the subjects might do to me, but because the results don't interest me. I can appreciate the technique involved but I just don't see why it's done.

Perhaps it's a matter of motivation. I take photographs because I want to produce something beautiful that I can at least imagine hanging on a wall. I've not seen a street shot that would fit the bill.

I'm prepared to admit it's a failing on my part, along with my lack of appreciation of much modern art (there was a feature in the Sunday Times on Koons and Hirst: I can't begin to understand how they made so much money), most modern music (Berio? Stockhausen? Cage? Lutoslawski? Birtwhistle?) and no doubt much else.
