I ran out of time to edit, but found something else.

If you open images and they are in the floating squares you can go to the menu bar.

Windows/Images/Consolidate all to tabs.

That will go back to having one image open with tabs for the rest.


Bill- Thanks. I was able to uncheck the floating documents and now the image opens full size. Im good with that. I tried to get the cascade back under Window in the menu bar, and that "consolidate to all tabs" is greyed out and unavailable. If youre saying its either one or the other, then Ill be happy with now being able to open the image in full size again. I would've thought for sure that I wanted floating docs and never wouldve unchecked that without your help. Andy

That has happened on a few occasions to me as well. With me, it reverted the next time I opened the same image. I use Elements 2018

Toxdoc, it happens every time I open the program. I probably checked or unchecked something by mistake, but I have no idea what. Andy

Morning all. I have a frustrating situation, and hope someone can help. I have Photoshop Elements 15 but this could apply to older or newer versions I suspect. After opening the program in the expert mode and importing an image, a small box maybe 2x2 inches opens over in the top corner instead of the full sized image. It isn't a thumbnail showing the whole image, but just a very small portion of it showing a piece of the corner. I click on View, then Fit on Screen and it does open fully, but it used to do that automatically. So question 1 is, what do I change to make it do that. Question 2 is if I select several images to open at once, I want them all to load full size behind the first one in the Cascade mode, where the corners of the other images are slightly visible behind the first. It used to do that too. I have tried many things, but I got nothing here. Thanks for your help..... Andy

I love my Fuji X-T2. For me I don't see enough benefit to switch to the X-T3.

Yellow in the rangefinder is not a flaw it's a feature so you can see where the rangefinder coincidence is located more easily.

Interesting Delkeener. I never thought of it that way.

Fortunately and unfortunately, I am not a camera collector. Fortunately, from my lovely wife's perspective, I never held onto any of my professional equipment beyond its utility and usefulness in our business. I either used the stuff 'till it virtually disintegrated and then discarding it or trading it in or selling it to make room for practical or upgraded replacements. If either of us have any kinda hoarding leanings- it's gotta be me as my wife is more of the thrower-outer. After 50 years of wedded bliss we have taken on some of each other's habits and came to a compromise policy.

In retrospect, the only things I regret disposing of are the cameras that would have held some significent memories of the times and circumstances. The earliest model of Leica I owned was an M-3-it was my personal camera during my time in Viet Nam. I had a body, a 50 and 35 and a 90 mm lenses and was able to tote the entire kit around in an old signal-satchel case. That M-3 and I survived allot of stuff!

I never owned a Retina but my Uncle Jack was especially proud of his. He was an architect by profession and always had his trusty Retina with him. He had hundreds of sharp, beautifully saturated Kodachrome slides of all his architectural projects. His wife, my Aunt Rachel, was an accomplished abstract artists and art teacher and Uncle had many slides of her paintings as well. an 11 year old kid, I was running around with a Kodak Pony 135 and Uncle Jack sat me down at the kitchen table and taught me about exposure, depth of field, basic composition and how to use his rather unsophisticated- un-cooled slide projector without melting my slides. That Retina is still around in the family- I'll try to get one of my favorite cousins to send me a photograph of it.

I don't recall if the entire camera was made in Germany or just the lens- a Xenon- pretty darn sharp for the era. At the time, the Pony 135 and 828 were the entry level Kodak adjustable cameras. Then came, in the lineup, the Kodak 35, The Chevron, and the Medalist (620) 2 1/4. The Retina was always advertised as in a class of its own- kinda elegant!

E.L. Shapiro. Nice to hear some history about your Uncle and his Retina. I think classy is a good way to describe the camera.

Yes I do. It deal with the age of the camera. But I still can use the ranger finder with no problem. To clear it one has to take the top of the camera apart, which I don't want to do. You will get great pictures with just using the 50mm lens.

Quinn4. I was going to send it in to Chris Sales might be his name, but having nothing to compare it to I may have one of the better viewfinders now.

AndyT: Great Camera, Have one and use it. The only draw back is when one is using the 80mm lens can't close the outside case.

Quinn4. Yes I read about the 80mm before I bought the camera and decided it was nice enough just to use the standard 50mm on it. Did you have much yellowing in the split image viewfinder?

I have never had either camera Bob, but I can remember drooling over a Leica when I was young. I don't remember the model. Congrats on a great catch.

I just recently bought this Retina IIc beautifully engineered in Germany in 1957. When you open the lens cover the lens unit slides out. The Darkroom scans my negs to digital files.
