With Koken no longer actively supported I needed to move to another Gallery management system but found it wasn’t possible due to how Koken stored Albums and images – in a completely random nonsensical method with no way to copy, migrate or otherwise export your galleries and files in a way that can be reconstructed into a new photo gallery system.

And… Koken is dead again. Sometime in 2018/19? See update here: How to Export Albums from Koken to a new system When my favorite photo gallery software Gallery closed up shop after 14 years I was faced with the decision to migrate to a photo community […]
My photo website’s excellent software Gallery had gone end of life with no support. I used the opportunity to explore new photo gallery software, Koken, and move from shared hosting to my first VPS – Virtual Private Server. VPS is like going from renter to home […]
Pics from two quick two night trips to New Orleans. I’d never visited, now twice in month for the NCTM and IRA conferences at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. One over a weekend that had me missing my daughters return from School and Mothers day. Bourbon Street […]
From PetaPixel – “If you’re a digital photography buff, here’s some required trivia knowledge: what you see above is a photograph of the first digital camera ever built. It was created in December 1975 by an engineer at Eastman Kodak named Steve Sasson…” Read […]
New smartphone day! First let me say that I have an iPhone 5 for work and love it, great OS, the best ecosystem, pretty much flawless functionality, we can talk about iTunes and lack of storage access another time. Camera wise the iPhone 5 […]
Eddie Pepitone before going on stage at the Lincoln Lodge – “I hope I’m funny”. Oh he was,very. The Lincoln Lodge (Lincoln Restaurant) what an interestingly strange place to see a show. The nations longest running independent comedy club at 14yrs was in the back […]
Code Notches for KODAK Sheet Films Found this great document when trying to determine the film type from 1995 my Ektachrome business cards. I created the cards in Corel Paint (had layers before Photoshop!) and output them from a Gateway PC to an 8×10 Management Graphics […]
Paint.Net is an excellent free image editing program for Windows. Released in 2004 as a school project the program has grown steadily over the years into an excellent mid-range image editing program supporting layers, effects, transparency and more. It’s what I use for creating […]
Indiana University Graduate – Jerry Uelsmann, Before Photoshop allowed image makers to bend reality to their will with a single keystroke there was Jerry Uelsmann. He created surreal images the hard way — not with digital shortcuts, but working in a darkroom with seven enlargers […]

Spent five days in Dublin for work, had Sunday off and went for a ride! Similar to an epic ride in San Francisco I followed the strict regime of staying up late for intensive liquid carbo loading, getting up early and hitting the most local […]
Stumped by limitations of Windows Movie Maker Live I went in search of an alternate free video editing program. Lo and behold I found an old friend. Microsoft had stopped development of Windows Movie Maker after Windows Vista so I hadn’t used it in a few years. Microsoft had moved Movie […]

After 23 years the US Pro Criterium Championships moved from Downers Grove Illinois to Glencoe. Sorry to see Downers Grove go as it was one of the longest running races in the nation and probably the closest to a cycling tradition the US has. […]
2010 Polar Plunge Photo Gallery Thea went to the 2010 Palatine Polar Plunge – an event to raise money for the Special Olympics. Fun time, crazy costumes and people.
Took a trip to Starved Rock Illinois for Eagle Watching Weekend. Absolutely beautiful hiking the trails with ice frosted tree branches and cold crisp air, but alas the generally warm Winter had left enough of the river unfrozen that the Bald Eagles did not […]

When taking pictures my Nikon D90’s display had flashed that the card needed to be formatted “frm”. I’ve seen this before and simply power off the camera, then reset the card and all is well. I continued shooting and all was good but what […]
Do your photos display with an odd brownish orange tint in Vista’s WPG – Windows Photo Gallery but look fine in any other program? Yeah me too. The issue appears to be the default ICC Color Profile Vista chooses for for video display device. […]
Chicago has been a little Seattle of late – wet. Very wet. Mow the lawn in August wet. No scorched earth anywhere to be found wet. The USPro Crit weekend was no different. Wet and wild. The rain let up for the pro race […]
See the pics! – Tested out my new Nikon Zoom lens at stage 1 and 2 of the Tour of Elk Grove. Chris Horner and Fast Freddie Rodriguez from team Predictor Lotto were in attendance plus all the top US pros. Overheard Freddy saying […]
Our three teenage boys Jacob, Adam and Ezra (no it was not a religious mission) passed through O’Hare International airport security at 2:20am on their way to three weeks in Guatemala. Two weeks to the day later we found ourselves passing through O’hare security […]
I hadn’t seen but one Little 500 race in the 20 years since I had ridden – 20th anniversary for Team Posers! An old teammate got me an infield pass (Nice!!) and I just happened to have a brand new lens for my camera […]
Cloud Gate – aka The Bean, Chicago 2007 7:45am Cloud Gate – aka The Bean, changes people with it’s presence. I think they should send it around the world. Cloud Gate is a sculpture by Indian-born British artist Sir Anish Kapoor, built between 2004-2006. […]
Yes I know it’s 1:45am ma’am, yes I do indeed need a 3:45am wake up call… When I called I doubt they knew it was from the bathroom phone while on knees with a dark cloth preparing to unload and reload 25 4×5 sheet […]
My two year old Nikon D70 suddenly started acting up two weeks ago. I whipped it out to get a shot of the kids being silly and the Card reader light was blinking. The camera wouldn’t turn on or do anything I asked of it. I […]
