MK, would be nice sometime to remind people about not scoring photos a 1 just because they think it should be DQ'ed. GraphicFunck (Dan)'s entry in the broken challenge had a comments on it from someone who scored it a 1 because of that.

that is also in the voting rules, but, as i said before, that's like trying to herd cats.

people are going to vote how they're going to vote, no matter what we do.

When you see that, please Report Post on the comment to make us aware, and we will address it with the user.

We'll be happy to address this, but we need your help to make us aware of these issues.

Thanks,

Since this thread has devolved into a discussion of EXIF modification: does adding keywords to a file using Adobe Bridge invalidate the EXIF data? I haven't used Bridge much, and I'd rather not start if doing so will render all of my files ineligible for competition.

Thanks Terry, I will let you know whenever I see this happening again.

If I understand right, using my HP 3in1 to transfer my pics renders them invalid if questioned?

Is that a card reader?

If so, then no, using a card reader does not render your originals invalid. You should use your operating system to transfer the files though, not any special software.

Can I ask a quick question here about exif data please?

When you are sent an original file, you get the exif data from tha file I believe. My question is that when I go to see exif data I first get a page that says "summary" and then click to go to the exif data. When you open it, do you also get this summary page or does it just go right to the exif data for you without any summary page?? I often wondered if that summary page was just my own computer and the way it did things, or if it occured with you on original files as well.

Thanks!

Drew and Langdon have built an EXIF parser into our DQ/validation processing interface. The EXIF data is extracted and displayed on the image's page within our DQ/validation system.

Yes, ok, but does that mean there is or is not a summary page shown to you first and then the exif data, as it shows on my computer?

I will PM you so I can elaborate on why I ask this question.

I do not know what the SC uses, but exif is just a text list of settings in an image file. It depends on the program you use if you get a summary or a full list or both.

It's a card reader built into my scanner/copier/printer. Okay, maybe I'm stupid, but how do I do that without the software?

Your computer's operating system should see the card reader as a drive, and assign a drive letter to it. You can just copy the images from that drive through Windows Explorer, as you would any other file or drive.

In the upcoming challenge, I shot the photo in RAW/NEF (first time using RAW) rather than JPG. I think, at this point, to make it simpler for me, until I'm more comfortable working in RAW/NEF images, I'm just going to shoot everything in JPG for DPC and save the JPG file separately before editing. No sense renting a Ferrari when all I need is a Corvette. ;-)

No, it sees it as a scanner. So yeah, guess I'm screwed.

edit- I figured out how to get them directly, yayyy! Terry, thanks for your help :)

I haven't been asked to send my original, but just in case, I have a question. If I shoot in Pentax RAW (which is a PEF file). Do you (the site council) have a PEF viewer to see the file?

wow I wish someone would have helped me with this when I got my DQ.
just kept telling me I had the rong file.

good question. I don't, but if that is the case, we wouldn't dq you for having a PEF, we (someone on SC) would simply find a viewer to use.

The software that comes with the Pentax K100D/K110D can be downloaded at the Pentaximaging website, so there would be no problems.

This is my very first post.... I am a noob/newbie (my son advised that the term is "noob") I am really green with the abreviations etc. so please bear with me.

I submitted to my 4th challennge and was DQ'd. I was very surprised to get an email stating the file was not an original when I sent it off after the DQ notice. My husband helped to sleuth the problem and finally realized that the file changed (or what I call CORRUPTED) when I rotated a vertical shot while viewing all of the shots on Adobe Viewer.

I was going to wait until after the challenge was over to post this info and warn other noob's that might not be aware as I was not.

My question to the site counselors... Is this correct that rotating the file on a viewer will corrupt the original status of file?

Another question, how would a person know why the picture was challenged.

My thoughts on why it was challenged was that there was a lot of whiteout/overexposure on the top corner and side. In photoshop, I cloned this whiteout to remove an overexposed hill and building deck on one side of the shot and a deck railing on the other side.
If I had produced the original, which I did but the rotate/edit ruined that, would this cloning be considered a DQ?

I thought the first 10 places automatically had validation requests anyhow, so your photo may not have been "challenged" for anything.

BTW, the latest Adobe Camera Raw (v3.6) now supports Pentax K100D RAW images (K110D, too--among others).

Ok heres a question about the rotating of files. As it states under my name I have a Canon 400D and in the camera it's self it is set to rotate the photos as I shoot. Could this come back at me for a DQ for an aleged edited image when in fact the image is rotated INSIDE the camera? If its any difference I shoot in RAW only...
