  • Ipernity messages

    I have had some emails in my usual email at Yahoo, including messages from Ipernity but none have arrived in my Ipernity messages. Are we all having problems with the Ipernity mail ?

  • Robins

    Today I managed to get two robins to feed from my hand. I have been wanting to try this for some time and I was over the moon when they came to me and allowed me to feed them. Such trust in a wild bird is amazing.

    I downloaded a lot of full size photos from Ipernity when the 100 gig cap was introduced. I did miss having them on Ipernity so this week i have been reducing the size of the photos and posting them back into Ipernity. The process is now complete and I have the photos back on Ipernity. They are all in albums and I find it easier to look for albums when I want to find a photo. I hope I will be able to get out now with my camera and start to add new photos this week.

  • Deja Vu

    I have just downloaded a lot of full size photographs from Ipernity due to the cap on storage here. On the 5th of January I got an email from Smugmug who have taken over Flickr. On the bottom of the email were these terms :_ In the “User Content” section, the following has been added: “From time to time, SmugMug may limit the amount of User Content, including your photographs, stored via the Site. SmugMug has the right, at any time, to remove your User Content stored on the Site in excess…

    I have now removed 11,000 full size photographs from Ipernity and I have 1,600 to download. It has taken some time but the end is in sight. I hope I can upload in reduced size from now on. I have some photos of magpies to edit and I will upload them later today.

  • Download progress

    - December  6, 2018 - 2 comments
    I have removed 8000 photos from Ipernity and I have 4,700 full size photographs still to remove. I have found a way to save photos in Photoshop at 25% of the normal size so that is going to be my normal post size once I have my full size photographs saved to my external hard drives. I hope the downloading process will not take too long now.

    When I joined Ipernity and the club there was a message, your in the club, upload as much as you like. I decided to use Ipernity to put my photos in folders and I took Ipernity at its word. Over the years I uploaded 150 folders and 12,700 photographs. At home I have a computer with 3tb of hd storage and 3 external hds..which in total gives me 12 tb of storage, I have a spare computer in the living room with 2tb of storage too. I regard storage at home as pretty cheap. I was surprised when…

  • My PC has gone down

    Unfortunately, my laptop has used up all its spare capacity in its c drive and is now giving me a lot of trouble, I cannot convert raw files to go into Photoshop. I have ordered a new laptop which will be here before the 2nd of August but till then I shall be having trouble getting photos up into Ipernity,. I shall try an old computer till my next laptop arrives but I'm not hopeful.

  • What to do...

    I am a week away from my club membership finishing and its time to renew but I don't know if it is wise to renew with the current situation, I would if there were a three month subscription. I think its the wisest to wait and renew when we are all in control. I wonder what happens if I keep posting photographs without club membership I know I will only see up to 200 images but will the older photos delete or just be hidden ?

  • Downloading

    - December  4, 2016
    I have tried to download a metafile for a single album but when I try to run it in a download manager all I get is it opening in the Chrome browser and nothing downloads. Is there anything I am missing to get the metafile to run please ?

  • Linda.

    My dear wife Linda discovered 2.5 months ago she had cancer. Today, the doctors say she will pass away either tonight or in the morning. We shared 14 wonderful years together. Her sisters are flying in to Manchester Airport tomorrow morning and I am praying that Linda hangs on till they can see her. I will be having a rough time so I don't know when I will be posting more photographs yet. Linda died at 5-30 am this morning.

    I have just bought a new Acer laptop. I have upgraded it to Windows 10 but It is giving me a lot of problems from the start.

Drive d is 2tb but I dont seem to be able to get programs to download to it. I hope these problems can be sorted out because the…
