The Mac Minuet
Don powdered wig. Motion to chamber musicians to begin. Take one stop forward, one step back, bow and flourish. Cuss and spit.
So the disk drive tray opens. Finally. Adobe Creative Suite 3 is loaded. Finally. The moment of truth: download and install the Mac version of Nikon Raw plugin and prepare to achieve warp speed. Tilt.
It asks me to verify my qualified upgrade path. Fine. I got all that in place with a call directly to Adobe before I made my decision to order two weeks ago. They found my registration numbers and it was all cool, requiring only that I pony up the $400 for the upgrade.
But today online, my CS2 reg numbers are not recognized. Okay. I have a month to make it right. Way things are going, I hope that’s going to be long enough.
But I did manage to get a raw image downsampled to save-for-web routine blog size, though getting to the blogimage folder will take some streamlining. Baby steps.
Now at this point, on my PC any day last week, I’d simply have clicked on the upload to Flickr widget and have you a clickable larger image. But not today. Soon. Maybe.
