Jupiter

No. 119 was not the only locomotive at Promontory Summit on May 10, 1869. Also joining in the party was Central Pacific Railroad's Jupiter. This replica sits opposite of  No. 199, just as it's predecessor did so many  years ago.

No. 119

This is a replica of Union Pacific Railroad No. 119. It's sitting at Promontory Summit in Utah, the same location that the original No. 119 was on May 10, 1869 when the first transcontinental railroad was completed.

Connecting A Nation

Is #TransportationTuesday still a thing? It's been a while since I posted anything for it, but I'm pretty sure this fits well.

We visited Golden Spike National Historic Site in Utah. This is the place where the railroads met to connect the nation by rail. There is a lot of history to be learned there, plus the steam locomotives are awesome.

This is just a phone shot, but will have to do as I have not edited the ones from the camera yet.

Lightroom Mobile Help, Please

I recently acquired a new phone, the LG G4. The camera features appealed to me, including the ability to shoot in RAW.

This is where LR Mobile comes in. I set it to import new photos into a collection, but only the RAW, DNG, images. If I'm going to edit JPGs, I'm going to do so with Snapseed.

So, some questions/quandaries that I have:

1.) LR Mobile also shows another collection, which is basically all the photos that were on the SD card from my previous phone. It does give me the option to remove the collection, however, the dialog that pops up makes it seem that it will remove the photos themselves. Can I safely tell it to remove the collection and expect my photos to remain on the card?

2.) LR on my desktop synced several photos from my phone, however it doesn't appear to have synced any of the DNG files, just the JPGs. Is there a setting to get it to sync these that I might be missing? It would be nice to be able to work with the RAW files on the desktop, but I really don't care about doing so with the JPGs.

3.) When sharing photos directly out of the LR Mobile app, such as this one here, they seem to nearly always be a very small image size. Is there a setting in LR Mobile to change this, or it is something with the phone itself? It seems useless to share if it's always going to end up this small.

In summary, is it safe to remove a collection from the app, how do I sync my DNG files to my desktop, and how do I share the images at a decent image size?

I have other questions, that perhaps I'll raise in another post, but they really are not LR Mobile specific.

Thank you for your help.

My apologies for sharing such an extremely low resolution version of this last night. I'm giving it another try to see if it works better.

Snack Time

An older photo, but thought I would throw it out there. Isn't is #SquirrelSaturday or something anyway?

A Question:
My wife has so wonderfully volunteered me to put together a photo slideshow later this year. Do anyone have suggestions as to which software to use?

I have Lightroom, so can use that without much issue, but I'm wondering if there might be something else worth checking out.

It's best if it's free, as I don't want to spend money if I don't have to. I'm cheap that way. It would be nice to be able to incorporate videos along with stills, but not a necessity. Music may, or many not, be involved as well. Simple is good, as I don't want something with a steep learning curve, nor do I need the end result to be super elaborate. I would like to have the option to output to a video format for the purpose of creating DVD or posting to YouTube, etc. I know that some slideshow software creates only .exe files for use on the computer only.

Okay, go...
