Re: Bob's Fort Wayne area photo of the week

I shoot in RAW a majority of the time but the trade off is that it does use twice the storage space.. 12- 20 meg file size a person go through a lot of memory, I carry 64 gig cards in my camera and use Adobe Lightroom to edit.

Re: Comment and question

I just changed that setting from Zero to Ten.. Good Luck, Mike So, what happens at 10? Are we given an option to delete old attachments to make room for new, or what? Zero on several of the setting equals unlimited on several of the settings, I believe 10 equals the number of attachments per post.....
