Calling Club Historians

Club History

Historic RPS Judging Panel

I’ve been approached by a committee member of the Chichester Society who has asked if the Club would like to produce an article for inclusion in their quarterly magazine.  He’s suggested that we could include something about the history of the club; Jeanne Bevis; the annual exhibitions; Hilary Featherstone’s montage of rubbish (relating the Club to local issues and conservation); and current activities.  This is a good opportunity to get the club known more widely and to provide additional content for our website.

It would also be good to document the history of the club.  So those of you who’ve been members for a while – can you put your thinking caps on and start to gather material for both an article in the Chichester Society Quarterly newsletter AND for our website.

I’m happy to coordinate and edit the final output but do need your help.   Can you let me know if you’re interested in this project and  send written and photographic material to me at this email ccc@roseisle.plus.com Let’s try and get it done by the end of the year.

Kind regards

NIK Collection and Adobe CC October 2017 Update

As Adobe release the most recent update to Creative Cloud this inevitably raises the level of anxiety for those of us who make extensive use of the Google  NIK Collection.  Previous updates have caused some [but not all] people problems which have included no longer being able to use this set of Photoshop plug-ins.  Several Club members have successfully updated Adobe CC but encountered some problems so I was asked to test out the update process.

The general approach I’ve taken is:

  • Audit what you’ve got in terms of system, file locations and settings – do you know where everything is so you can check what has changed
  • Test what you’ve got – are you sure everything is working
  • Backup what you’ve got – in case things go wrong
  • Perform the update
  • Check file locations – this seems to be an issue with the NIK Collection and Adobe CC updates
  • Test what you’ve got – is it all still working
  • If NIK Collection isn’t working then troubleshoot by searching internet forums
  • If all else fails restore your backup!

The attached PDF Adobe CC 17 October 2017 Update sets out the detailed testing I’ve carried following the above approach.  Please don’t be put off by the length of the document as much of it is a check list to allow you to do your own pre & post update testing.

The bottom line is that I have been able to successfully update Adobe CC and continue to use the NIK Collection in both Photoshop 2018 CC and from Lightroom Classic CC.

Good luck with updating

Kind Regards
