I want to have a duplicate Lightroom setup on two computers in two different cities.
Macs at both ends.  High Sierra OS
Photos are divided into folders, based on the date of import
My base of operations is in New York City, and I have to spend some time away in Massachusetts
Lightroom has over 300,000 pictures, and the catalog is over 4.39 GB
I need my assistant to sync and review my collection, delete photos and add keywords, etc.
After the assistant does their changes, I will need the
In preparation, I did the following copying:
I duplicated all the LR files onto a removable drive  (CRU RTX)
I took the drive with me to the second city
I set up a VPN between the two locations.
NYC has a fast FIOS connection:  greater than 300 Mbps both download and upload.  Sometimes Speedtest will show >600 for each
MA has a cable connection - about 60Mbps Download and 20Mbps Upload
I connect from NYC to MA
Tunnelblick on NYC computer
Araknis Router in MA has OpenVPN
First Method of sync:
Mac File Sharing
"Beyond Compare" application to update from one direction to another
Too slow to compare files over a VPN
Connection would drop - I assume from the 'stress' of comparing too many files
Second Method of sync:
"Retrospect" application - Server in NYC, Client in MA.
The Client works locally on the MA computer to catalog changes,
Server in NYC compares MA catalog of files to NYC local catalog
Retrospect copies new and changed files

I have created labels using access 2010.  They have 4 across and 13 down.   Everything looks good except I inserted a picture on the label and it's only showing up on 32-42 of the labels.  There are 52 labels going across then down.  so the last 10-18 won't have the picture on them.  why would it do this??

I am closing this question.   I had compacted and repaired the db and then opened it again and same problem.  But after a reboot overnight, it was working fine. I'm chalking this up to gremlins in the code.  Have a great day!
Scan of 35mm color slides results in an image that is 7.5 MB and 8,300 x 29,000 pixels. Irfanview is able to open the file and in inches it is 2.60 x 9.10. I've tried Microsoft Picture Manager for cropping and the result is a blank image.
What can be done to capture the images on the color slide? The top one had been used to create a 4x6 inch print by a camera shop.

Revised: well upon loading here they can actually be seen fairly well. Except the second one from the top which was a closeup of someone's face and maybe a chest up shot of someone. That ones shows nothing.

I currently upload hundreds of photos to Google + after each race I time and send a link to race participants so they can find their finish line picture.  Lately Google + is not sorting them in the order that they were taken which is how I think I have it set up.  Is there a setting on the camera that I need to change for this or is this something I am doing wrong on Google +.  Alternatively, are there other FREE pictures storage sites that folks can access their finish line picture via a link?

Dear Powershell experts.. Powershell script issue

We want to move .jpg files beginning with "DRS_" or "DRS-" from local computer directory to a remote computer directory, ultimately.
We want the script to check every 30 seconds (or loop if applicable) if the source folder has above jpg file types in it and if so run the PS "move-item" functions. Testing with just the "move-item" function lines on their own works.

My problem seems to be in the construct on logic of the section below which seems to be ignored right now:
$timeout = 120
$sw = [diagnostics.stopwatch]::StartNew()
while ($sw.elapsed -lt $timeout)
    if (Test-Path $Source1 -include DRS*.jpg){
        write-host "Found a file!"

Please help fix it.

Thankyou. See attached script.

I was actually trying to do read an image, do object detection on it and write a new image that has detected objects marked in it. A new image does indeed get saved in the working directory but I am unable to open it using cv2 or using any of the image displaying softwares on fedora. i tried uploading it to a photo uploading site and it displays properly. I did go through the stack overflow, they say the issue was regarding trying to read a png image using a jpeg reader and as per what i could understand i tried installing libpng but still does not work.Would be grateful if someone could help me with it. Here is the code I have tried:

from imageai.Detection import ObjectDetection
import os
import cv2

execution_path = os.getcwd()

detector = ObjectDetection()
detector.setModelPath( os.path.join(execution_path , "resnet50_coco_best_v2.0.1.h5"))
detections = detector.detectObjectsFromImage(input_image=os.path.join(execution_path , "car.jpg"), output_image_path=os.path.join(execution_path , "imagenew.jpg"))

for eachObject in detections:
    print(eachObject["name"] + " : " + eachObject["percentage_probability"] )

You can't check the permissions in Organizer. It will only ever show you your account default setting.

For a project I have a  Python PyQT4  application in full screen mode that is running on Windows 10.

This application has now to take photos.

Ideally the Photo  application would be a widget in pyqt and we could therefore design the layout (img size / exposure / flash / take picture buttons / etc), but it's also OK to use another full screen application, that could be started via subprocess.Popen().

The application would ideally be able to choose the image resolution, exposure, framerate of viewer window but it's also OK to take picture always with the highest resolution and to perform the downscaling afterwards.

Any suggestions of how to do this best?

I currently upload finish line pictures from races I time to Google + and share the gallery with race finishers so they can find their picture.  I would like to take that a step further and share each finishers individual picture with them.  I believe Google Vision has the technology to do that...albeit for a pairing participant bib number with bib in the image.  Is anyone familiar enough with this api to give me some direction as to how to do this?  Also, any idea how this product is priced?

Hi, i had a friend of mine, she brought her mac laptop (model below):

- MacBook Pro, Retina, 13-inch, late 2013
Processor 2.4GHs intel core i5, Memormy 4GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Serial Number: C02LG613FGYY

She showed me that her Storage is 50.49 of Photos but she is aware that in her iphoto folder only has about 10 photos and the rest she had deleted them. She is confused as to why her storage is 50gb of photos - maybe they are stored somewhere which we are not aware of? Please can you advise?
