    Do you ever wonder how people made pictures before there were cameras?

    Memorizing a map works fine if (a) you have a map and (b) have time to
    memorize it. If you're working the kind of job where you may have a
    dozen appointments at different locations a GPS is a major timesaver.
    Doubly so when the route you would have otherwise taken is blocked.

    The trouble is that if it's a really remote place a cell phone isn't
    going to work.

    Why are you shooting the breeze about something that you KNOW
    won't help the OP at all?

    Hammer, Nail.
    And that's relevant to the problem of the OP, because you
    won't even let the OP use your Photoshop, I gather?
    That's relevant to the OP because you're offering to teach
    him, right?

    I follow what you said perfectly: "*I* *I* *I*".

    The world really revolves round you, doesn't it?
    How often do you deal with just cropping an image,
    without *any* other changes?
    Rather than dealing with images that need cropping and
    nothing else, you should perhaps deal with how you get such

    OTOH, many JPEGs need to be rotated: they only contain a flag
    *how* they are to be rotated instead of being up the right way.
    And sending a photo via email to be automatically placed in a
    gallery isn't half as outlandish as your limited understanding
    makes it to be.
    Faststone is not "a free program", absolutely not as in FOSS
    and only in very limited circumstances as in beer. Let someone read
    to you and then let someone explain the meaning to you.
    So why don't you use Photoshop?

    I understand you perfectly. It's you who doesn't understand
    you. It's extremely rare that a person can understand the
    power of e.g. smartphones without having tried them themselves
    for a significant time. You are no such person.
    | Traditionally, there are only three classes of people who use 'we'
    | in describing themselves: Royalty (which you aren't), editors (no
    | evidence that this applies) and people with tapeworms. Please let us
    | know when you've been cured. --Hal Heydt, to Dennis O'Connor

    For you, with your limited understanding, maybe. For many
    other people: No car. Smartphone.
    So you're saying the Amish can't be happy, because they lack
    cars and probably point-and-shoots?

  9. I do remember that time, they took longer, sometimes *much*
    longer and had way more stress on the way.
    Yep, dabbled in it myself. I much prefer cameras.
    Which is not a given. Or do you carry maps of every village
    larger than 3 roads in your state with you and never travel
    outside your state?
    and (c) are good at memorizing maps to the point that you'll
    have every street in the vincinity before your mind's eye
    when you take a wrong turn or want to avoid a traffic jam,
    a closed road, etc.

    and (d) can plan a reasonable short *and* fast route quickly
    enough, and can reroute yourself while driving in cicumstances
    like mentioned in (c).
    But that isn't important to Tony Cooper, and therefore
    shouldn't be important to anyone else.

    therfore the idea that such a thing exists is ridiculous.

    So what you're suggesting, by this analogy, is that someone should
    have a selection of programs installed so a different one can be used
    based on the complexity of the task?

    One program crop, one program, to rotate, one program to adjust color,
    and so on?

    Yes, I read it. It says the FastStone's image viewer is free for
    personal and educational use, but there is a charge for commercial
    use. Since "I" am a non-commercial user, the program is free.
    Do what? View a file of images as thumbnails? Photoshop (CS) doesn't
    do this. (Elements does if you include the images in their Organizer)
    Re-number a series of images without opening the images? Photoshop
    (CS) doesn't do this. Move or copy files from one folder to another
    without opening the files? Photoshop (CS) doesn't do this. Rotate an
    image without opening the file? Photoshop (CS) doesn't do this.

    I am still wondering how rotating images that are sent to you is a
    significant enough issue for you to either be concerned about or to go
    to the bother of adding a program to do just this.

    Who sends these images to you?

    Heydt, whomever he may be, is obviously uninformed. The "Royal 'We'"
    is capitalized.
    In some ways, I envy the Amish. They are not subjected to people
    insisting that because things like smartphones are useful to them,
    that everyone else should also have a smartphone.

    Or, in your case, "I have a perceived need for an X, therefore
    everyone else should have a need for an X".

    You don't do those in CS because you do that in the support application
    Bridge that is included with CS.

    -View the thumbnails (re-size the thumbnails as well).
    -Rotate the image. (single, selection, all)
    -sort by the usual criteria (date, number, ...)
    -Launches into CS by clicking on the photo (via ACR if raw, or
    optionally via if not).
    -Batch re-naming (more than just re-numbering)
    -copy/move files within Bridge or from/to the OS file folder of choice.
    -rate them

    Free from some things is imprisoned by other things.

    Yes, as mentioned in my post (and you trimmed) I can do these things
    in Bridge. However, I prefer to do them in FastStone. It's a small
    thing, but clicking on an image in Bridge opens that file in Photoshop
    and using the spacebar expands the image to full screen. I constantly
    open images that I only want to view full screen.

    In FastStone, you double-click on the thumbnail to expand it, and
    right-click to have the option to open the image in your choice of

    Also, in FastStone, you can rearrange the images in a sort order by
    dragging and then re-number them to retain that sort order.
    (2013-05-16-01 is my numbering system)

    I do a lot of file moving. Images are downloaded to a folder like
    "2013-May-Raw", and if converted to a .psd or .jpg moved to a folder
    like "2013-May-JPG". I need only look through the JPG folder to see
    the processed keepers.

    It's just my personal preferance, and I make no claim that it is a
    better system.

    I guess you guys haven't seen the smartphone using, pickup truck &
    Mercedes driving Amish shown in "Breaking Amish" and "Amish Mafia". It
    seems the cell phone is ubiquitous in Amish country in Pennsylvania &
    Ohio, nowadays.

    nothing does.

    you *have* to open the file to rotate the image, no matter what app is
    used. think about it.

    the fact you don't understand this basic fact says a lot.
