Sudden Focus Problem, Lens Broken? Help!

09 January 2014 - 04:01 PM

Figured it out! (see post below)


I have a Canon DSLR with a 28-135mm lens. I was just today taking close-up photos (of my jewelry I sell) when the trouble started. All was fine, I was using manual focus, set it on the nearest focus setting, which allows me to get close enough to my jewelry to take good close-up photos. But between one photo and the next, suddenly I can't focus that close, I have to move way out for the item to be in focus on the nearest setting (which is useless for what I'm doing). Unless I bumped something mysterious, I didn't change anything. (I was using it on M-manual program) When I switch it to auto focus, it also cannot focus as close as it did previously. I'm wondering if this is possibly a broken focusing mechanism inside the lens? And if so, can it be repaired (and is it worth it)? Unfortunately it looks like the nearest camera repair shop is over an hour away, so I'd have to send it off somewhere (where?). I bought the camera and lens lightly used over a year ago, and am not aware of any warranty that would cover it.


This is my "good" camera I use for all my photos (that I don't take with my phone), so I need to figure out what's wrong. Anyone have a clue?

What Font Is Deb Any Month Calendar Brush?

Hi! Wondering what font DEB Any Month calendar brush is, I would like to match the font if possible for my photo captions on the calendars I'm making with this brush set. Thanks!

How Can I Get Product Preview Images For Discontinued Items?

17 July 2013 - 11:27 AM

I'm going through my styles and trying to put together a folder with copies of all the product preview images to show what they look like for quick reference. Some I've had a while and have been discontinued, and for some reason at one point I deleted those preview files. (Or moved them somewhere "safe" I will never find!) I found some images lingering on Kaboodle lists, but not others (and a couple were teeny tiny).

I assume SG deletes all those things off the server (LMK if I'm wrong), so I'm wondering if someone can help me out? I'm hoping for previews 300px or larger, they can be emailed to me. I'm hoping it's okay to ask something like this. I'm NOT asking for the actual product files (have those).

EDIT: Got them all, thanks sooo much!

Mre Corner Rounder Action Which Files To Load In Pse11?

17 July 2013 - 10:30 AM

Hi! I'm getting ready to load actions in PSE11. I'm looking at my folder for MRE Corner Rounder, and I'm now confused. There is one ATN file in the main folder, called MRE_SSTools_Actions_CornerRound.atn. Then there are four ATN files inside a sub-folder, with similar names but "custom", "large", "medium", "small". The product preview just shows what I assume are the "large", "medium", "small". I don't think I ever got this action put into my old PSE either, so I've never used it, but looking forward to it!

Help? Thanks! :-)

Pse 11 Loading Vs. Installing ?

16 July 2013 - 07:22 PM

First, thanks for the people who shared on other threads how to get actions, styles, brushes, etc. into PSE 11.

Question: If we are "loading" rather than "installing" as in previous versions, does that mean we have to "load" an action, for example, every time we open the program and want to use it? Or will it always be there just like installing? Don't want to waste time loading everything at once if that is the case. Thanks!

Also, are there any SG styles, actions, etc. that are known NOT to work in PSE11 (that worked in earlier versions of PSE)?
