Interesting. The sixty dollar price tag applies only to the "special" version that is
not upgradeable. Too bad.

Still not to bad though. I think an upgrade is $99 so combined you pay $9 more than normal. At this price those that are on the fence about this app can now jump off. Basically you are paying $9 to try the app for as long as you like.

Upgrades are $90.00. So if you want to later get an upgrade to whatever comes next, the total purchase price is the same. Versions of Photo Mechanic never 'expire'--upgrades are not required unless you want the latest major version of Photo Mechanic. When you buy a license you're able to run the version series you purchased indefinitely.

Users who purchase 4.6.6 will for certain be getting one free update (to version 4.6.7) which will be coming out in the next few weeks.

TIA

We list it as that so we don't have to update the store each time we release a minor update. 4.6.6 is the current release. 4.6.7 is coming soon and will be a free update for all 4.6.x users.

I actually don't know. The sales folks at 503-547-2800 should know.

Thanks Kirk,

I thought I saw $99 on the site, my bad. However, even if it was $99 instead of $90 it is still a great deal

So Peter, willing to share any details on setting up an Excel graph from PM data (contact sheet)? Could the graph plot any tags, as opposed to lenses?

Hi. It is really quite easy if you have some familiarity with software tools:

1. In PM select a bunch of images in a contact sheet
2. In PM do a File->Export, choose Text Exporter and in the "Enter variables below..." area put {lenstype} or any other variable you want.
3. Paste the contents of the resulting text file into the attached Excel spreadsheet* in cell A2 and below. Note that you may have many blank lines for images for which the lens is unknown. I changed those to Unknown.
4. Modify cells C4 to C10 to reflect the exact names of lenses you have.
5. Modify cells D4 to D10 to user friendly versions of the names (anything readable is good)

Let me know how you make out.

*IMPORTANT: I can't seem to attach a .xlsx Excel file nor a .zip file. I can post a Word document. So download the attachment and then change the file extension to .xls or .xlsx. Then open it with Excel.

Thanks Peter, but I use Microsoft Office 2007, and your attachment would not open for me even with the extension changes I tried. It gave me many error messages as I tried to open it adfter each "rename", the most commor error message was "This document was created with a pree-release version of Office 2007 and all contents cannot be read."

Bummer. Please try the attached. Rename it from a .doc to a .xls (not .xlsx). I did a Save As... in my Excel and saved it as a 97-2003 version.

FYI as a test if I download what uploaded and rename the file it opens OK in Excel.

BTW I can't quickly tell what version of Excel I am using... the About menu pick isn't readily available. I think it too is 2007.

Do let me know how you make out.

Wow, Peter, what a bud! You have made a lot of effort to get your document to me!

Still didn't work. First I tries 7 or 8 different encodings (European, etc.) on the doc - no luck. Then I renamed with an extension .xls - still no luck. Then I was able to convert it to a pdf - stilled garbled, no luck.

When I spoke to Winston (via email) he indicated that the webinars would be available for 6 months.This was before they were released, so whether he has finalized a set time for them to be available I don't know.In addition, each session comes with a downloadable printable tutorial which covers the Webinar, so you do have a lasting hard copy.
Hope that helps

Yes Paula, thanks that helps a lot! I am going to try it. I recently retired and because of a lot of photo traveling, I would need plenty of time to work on the information in a webinar like this. I have never done a webinar before but 6 months should be fine.

Does anyone know how Winston's Webinar compares with Jason Odell's online seminar (NEF-Centric Workflow)? Thanks.

Rich, I haven't tried Jason's webinars yet, but Winston's captureNX2 is great! Of course I missed the "live" webinar, but I verified with Winston that I will always have access to the videos, and they are great - TONS of info that you can watch and review at your own pace (lose the cursor? Just back up and find it again! Hunt for it as many times as you like!)

I bet Jason's are great also.

Thanks Bill,

Jason's "NEF Centric Workflow" seminar name caught my attention. I've been struggling to find a workflow I'm comfortable with when I come back from a major trip with 1,000-1,500 RAW photos from 2 different camera systems. I've used Bridge/Camera Raw in the past, but that means I'm having to "re-do" what came out of the Nikon to produce a good result. With Capture, you're already most of the way there when you open a NEF since it reads the camera data.

I bought a D7000 this year and also have a Panasonic LX-3 I take on travel (shooting raw), and I'm in the process of updating software. I bought the $60 PM special and have used it BRIEFLY. I like what I have seen, but want to learn to get the most out of it in the shortest time. I use Capture NX2 for my Nikon post processing, and am forced to use Adobe for the Panny. But both camera's RAW files show up in the PM browser, so that makes editing and rating simpler. I took Winston's D200 and Capture NX2 courses and was very impressed with both.

Rich
