I posted my update tonight using my iPad and loaded the pictures directly from Photos using the trick you taught us, today.  It works great and saves some time.  I can take the pictures with either my iPhone or iPad.  Do you know of a way to access pictures in photos directly using a MacBook Pro?


To date, I have always exported photographs from photos using the Export function - this is when I would resize them and store them as jpg files in a special directory.

Glad it helps, John. It’s my go to method.

For your Mac archiving, there is also a neater way of handling things. Prebuilt into your Mac is an app called “Image Capture” — find it in your Applications folder.

With your iPhone/iPad plugged in, you can literally batch import/drag and drop as you see fit. Almost like it was an external hard drive.


Interesting - I have used it with my SLR but never tried with the iPhone. Thank you for the tip I will give it a try. Now what did I do with the cord for the phone???

You can sure tell that some of the sheds haven’t been dulled down with the white chalk. The iPhone camera really enhances this. The difference isn’t as significant to my eye without the camera lens.

I also made some progress on the G. Wilikers build. The platform and platform shed got a dry fit before I add some sand to the baseboard under the platform.

Today, I finished adding the sand to establish the landscape of the Beach Farms diorama.

Okay - it works and eliminates the export step on my MacBook.  Thank you Craig.

Most welcome -- and the upload looks great! Out of curiosity, did you upload to your gallery first and then link it here in a post?


Craig


Yes - I use the gallery to store the pictures and link them to the posts.

Looks awesome John. Is that actual beach sand? What do you do to anchor/glue it down?


Curt


Thank you - yes it is beach sand.  Here in Michigan if you dig a hole just about anywhere you will find beach sand. At my cabin its down about 3 feet.  It works great for landforms - I just add fine sand on top of it for the top layer. After spreading it - I wet it down with wet water and then 4:1 Matt Medium. It takes a couple days to dry in the deep areas.

A test of Craig’s picture posting tip.  I haven’t posted pictures with my phone or iPad because of the bug we had so here we go.

On Photos.app on the Mac, when I do "Export", I pick "Size -> Custom".  Then set max "Dimension" to 800, and JPEG Quality to "High".  Sometimes the resulting file will be too large, in which case I usually decrease the max dimension but keep the quality. 

I sure wish I could easily post photos again!

I use the boxes rather than custom because photos pops up with the same setting each time and saves me some time.  I may run into the size limit with the large setting but time will tell.

Hey John:

Looks just gorgeous. Keep the pics flowing. Can't wait to see this one finished.

Thank you - I will be adding some more details today. Pictures to follow.

John,


Love the amount of detail I can see in the larger photo.  Farm is looking great!


Jerry


Thank you - I will keep making the necessary adjustments to keep the bigger picture format.

The larger file size looks the best from here!

I take all my WIP photos on my iPhone so I find that any new phone also changes things up, given they have likely received a bump in megapixels.

Still loving the model, John!


Craig


I also take most of my WIP pictures with my iPhone. Things change from time to time with the software upgrades. I like the bigger pictures and continually adjust to stay about the same size.

Good morning! I just looked at our forecast for the next 10 days - high 33 low 21 (give or take a degree) oh and cloudy with a 10% chance of snow. Sounds like winter or better yet "modeling season" to me. I have the coffee going and will be heading into the train room for the day.  I hope everyone has a great day.
