    The Nvidia GEforce you linked to is pci-express, the Nov 2003 1.8 dual is pci-x. I've read that only PCI and PCI-X work for this. Is that true?

Compatibility issues
The most significant issue is for users of PCI cards. PCI cards can operate at either 3.3V or 5V, but only 3.3V cards can be used in a PCI-X slot. Obviously such PCI cards will only operate at their normal speed. The 2 100Mhz slots share a single bus, and if a PCI card is placed in one of these slots then both will operate at normal PCI speeds, but the third slot will not be affected (and vice-versa). Users of expensive audio/video editing cards may need to renew their equipment, unless they go for the 1.6 Ghz model.
Although the G5 is a 64bit processor, it is fully compatible with existing code, although obviously applications optimized specifically for the new processor will have an extra performance increase. The single exception to this (as far as I know) is Virtual PC. This software used a feature of G3 and G4 processors known as "pesudo little-endian mode" which is not present in the G5. Microsoft is said to be working on fixing this.
Another concern is the loss of parallel ATA, as many users may have hard drives they wish to carry over to their new systems. Apple have explicitly stated that serial to parallel adapters will not work, however people have managed to connect their drives to the ATA bus that the optical drive is on.

I have a big layered Photoshop (psd) image. I have to cut this image and use it for web graphics. How will i do that in photoshop cs3? I want a step by step well explained tutorial for performing this...


Click on the file tab; Navigate to Scripts; Click on "export layers to files";
A browser window pops up
Create a folder to where your images will save and click save.
You'll see it working to save your images... when it's done, visit the newly created folder and open all the files back into photoshop.

On the first image, press Shift Control Alt S, or Shift Command Option S on a mac. This pulls up the save for web dialog box. It is already configured to a setting that will work for web graphics... so choose Save, and then choose where to store the image. (I would make a new folder called "saved for web".) Repeat for each image.

PhotoShop CS3 Droplet automation


Try the following steps
  1. Choose File => Automate => Create Droplet.
  2. Specify where to save the droplet. Click Choose in the Save Droplet In section of the dialog box and navigate to the location.
  3. Select the Action Set, and then designate which action you intend to use within the Set and Action menus. (Select the action in the Actions palette before you open the dialog box to preselect these menus.
  4. Set Play options for the droplet:
    a. Override Action “Open” Commands Open commands in the action refer to the batched files, rather than to the file names specified in the action. Deselect Override Action “Open” Commands if the action was recorded to operate on open files or if the action contains Open commands for specific files that are required by the action.
    b. Include All Subfolders Processes files in subdirectories.
    c. Suppress Color Profile Warnings Turns off display of color profile messages.
    d. Suppress File Open Options Dialogs Hides File Open Options dialog boxes. This is useful when batching actions on camera raw image files. The default or previously specified settings will be used.
  5. Choose a destination for the processed files from the Destination menu:
    a. None Leaves the files open without saving changes (unless the action includes a Save command).
    b. Save And Close Saves the files in their current location, overwriting the original files.
    c. Folder Saves the processed files to another location. Click Choose to specify the destination folder.

    Note: You can record an action that saves using a specified file name and folder. If you do this and deselect Override Action “Save As” Commands, the same file is overwritten each time. If you record your Save As step in the action without specifying a file name, the droplet saves it to the same folder each time but uses the file name of the document being saved.

  6. If the action includes a Save As command, choose Override Action “Save As” Commands to make sure files are saved to the folder you specified (or to their original folder if you chose Save And Close.) To use this option, the action must contain a Save As command, whether or not it specifies a save location or file name; otherwise, no files are saved.

    Some save options are not available in the Batch command (such as JPEG compression or TIFF options). To use these options, record them in the action, then use the Override Action “Save As” Commands option to make sure that your files are saved where you specify in the Batch command.

  7. If you chose Folder as the destination, specify a file-naming convention and select file compatibility options for the processed files:
    a. For File Naming, select elements from the pop‑up menus or enter text into the fields to be combined into the default names for all files. Elements include document name, serial number or letter, file creation date, and file extension. Starting Serial Number specifies the starting number for any serial number fields. Serial letter fields always start with the letter “A” for the first file.
    b. For Compatibility, choose Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX to make file names compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX operating systems.
  8. Select an option for error processing from the Errors pop‑up menu:
    a. Stop For Errors Suspends the process until you confirm the error message.
    b. Log Errors To File Records each error in a file without stopping the process. If errors are logged to a file, a message appears after processing. To review the error file, open it in a text editor after the Batch command runs.
Give it a try.........

Camera RAW and PhotoShop CS3


To start, before building an action or a droplet to convert from Raw, you need at least either the RAW plugin, or the photoshop lightroom plugin, depending on the version of Photoshop. I assume you have the plugin installed on your Photoshop. See: Adobe - Adobe Photoshop CS4: Digital camera raw file support.

A better choice would be having the Nikon Capture NX , that give you the option to work on the native RAW format from Nikon.

Once you have installed a plugin to manage RAW format files you can record an action or droplet to automate the process. If youj want more automation, you set an action first, as a batch process to do action on a single file, then build a droplet on the action batch file. A droplet will give more automation, since droplets can be activated by dropping a folder of images onto that specific Droplet Process, and they will apply the batch process to all the files contained in the folder.

The way you build the batch action depends much on the version of Photoshop you are using and on the plugin used. Here an example using Adobe PS CS2 and camera Raw plugin: Raw Format Workflow with Adobe Bridge .

The action can be saved using the recorder, so that the procedure will de quite instinctive. See the tutorials below for step-by-step instructions.

Photos taken with canon 5d with both raw & jpeg formats. When I open Adobe bridge the photos are displayed as _mg_0133.cr2 and _mg_0133.jpeg. The jpegs can be viewed and opened, but I can't open the cr2...


If you have the 5D Mark II (the latest version,) the raw converter in Photoshop CS3 does not support the format. If you have the earlier version of lthe 5D, download the latest raw converter update from Adobe (free}

If you have the Mark II you can do one of three things to continue using Photoshop:

1. Upgrade to CS4. The latest update for it's raw converter supports the 5D Mark II.

2. Download the Adobe DNG Converter when 5.2 version becomes available and convert your cr2 files to the DNG format which CS3 can read. In the past this has been available as a free download form Adobe, but it's not currently on their site.

3. Use the raw converter that came with your camera.

Can't open img prefix cr2 suffex files with abobe bridge or cs3


Hi there,
You say the problem only just began. What has happened to Photoshop in between it working and not, ie, any upgrades, updates, installs, etc? This will no doubt reveal the answer to your conundrum. Get PS to check for updates then do them all, especially any referencing Camera RAW updates.

The next thing you will want to check is that the image files are ok. Download the latest Canon image viewer from here. You can also download the drivers directly from the canon site. Just click the link at the bottom of the page.

All the best
