How do I use the rating system for multiple raters?

My wife, her sister, and I are all rating some photos I took a couple of days ago. Each of us, of course, has different favorites.
I would like to record our different ratings in the LR3 rating system but can't see an immediately obvious way to do so. I thought of using the color labels--different color for each of us. But each photo will only take one color label. I could use the star ratings, one star for only one selection, two for two, etc. But that would not record who chose which. I need to know that.
Has anyone had the same problem? If so, is there some rather obvious solution? I would think that it's not all that unusual for several folk to participate in a shoot, using one camera; and then to need some way to record their differing judgments on the photos in LR3.
Any thoughts would be helpful. Thanks in advance,
John Kendrick

The rating system in LR3 is not really designed with that type of functionality in mind.  The "target Lightroom user" is an individual that uses LR to create a catalog of photographs which can be graded with a star rating based upon their opinion of the photograph.  The concept of seperate star ratings for multiple users doesn't really fit into that concept.  LR3, in general, is designed with a single photographer in mind... one that essentially uses the program by his/herself... so it has a bare minimum of 'group' functionality.
It may be possible to find a plug-in that will enable star ratings by multiple users, but I've never heard of one before.
If you really, really need this type of functionality (i.e. saving star ratings by multiple people), the only way to do it that I could think of would be to create multiple collections of the same shoot, each of which is filled with virtual copies of the original photos.  Each collection could hypothetically be called '08-03-2010 Bill Ratings'...'08-03-2010 Jill Ratings'... etc... etc.  Admittedly, such a workaround may very well be more trouble than its worth... that's just the only way I can think of that you might come close to achieving the functionality you're after.

  • How do use the same crop for multiple images.

    I have a number of images that I want to use the same crop on. Instead of go through the whole slow process for each image is there a way to use the same crop for all of the images?
    And in iPhoto there was a way to copy the adjustment settings to multiple images, I can't see how to do that in aperture.

    Use the "Lift&Stamp" tool:
    Crop one image.
    Lift the crop using the "Lift" tool.
    Select the other images.
    Stamp the crop adjustment to all of them.
    But caution: By default "Lift" will copy all Metadata tags and all adjustments, but the gps data. If you only want to transfer the cropping rectangle, deselect all lifted items but the crop adjustment before stamping.

  • How can I use the same session for different components acroos application ?

    I am trying to include the components(chat, filesharing, whitboard) in different parts of my application. User should be able to access any of the component. We would like to have a single "ConnectSessionContainer" so that we don't see same user creating a seperate session for each component.
    Is there a better way of dealing with this other than declaring the "ConnectSessionContainer" in the main application ? Is there a way to check if we have a "ConnectSessionContainer" session already established ? Please help . Thanks.

    Thanks for the response. Let me explain what I am trying to do..
    I am trying to create components at different places(screens) of the flex application (not in the same .mxml file).
    Each time I create a component, I am using a "AdobeHSAuthenticator" and "ConnectSessionContainer" which is resulting a new participant in the room.
    For example
    screen1.mxml -
    <rtc:AdobeHSAuthenticator id="auth" authenticationSuccess="onAuthSuccess(event);" authenticationFailure="onAuthFailure(event);" />
    <rtc:ConnectSessionContainer id="mySession" >
            <rtc:Roster id="myRoster" width="100%" height="100%" />
            <rtc:Chat id="mychat" width="100%" height="100%" />
    screen2.mxml (in the same application) -
    <rtc:AdobeHSAuthenticator id="auth" authenticationSuccess="onAuthSuccess(event);" authenticationFailure="onAuthFailure(event);" />
    <rtc:ConnectSessionContainer id="mySession" >
            <rtc:SharedWhiteBoard id="wb" width="100%" height="100%" />
    Here, I open a screen1 and authenticate as UserA and when I try to open screen2 flex is considering me as another user though I am in the same application.
    1) How can I use different components which are in different flex files as a same User ?
    2) Should I place my <rtc:AdobeHSAuthenticator> and <rtc:ConnectSessionContainer> in the main application which calls the screen.mxml?
    3) What is the best way to do it ?
    Thanks for your time !

  • How can I use the value returned for a function into the macro ??

    I create a function to work in a macro and I would like to use the value of parameter f_calc_error returned by function in a condition like IF, but I don't know how can I do that. I have to use the macro function CALC_ERROR ??
    Edson Suzuki

    Hi Edson,
    Yes you need to use the CALC_ERROR macro function to be able to test whether the last macro function returned an error. CALC_ERROR will return an 'X' if there an error occured during the execution of the last macro function.
    You can use a macro similar to the following:
      CALC_ERROR( )
      = 'X'
    Let me explain how this works internally. The SAP system maintains a global variable g_flg_calc_error during the execution of macros in the planning book. The g_flg_calc_error variable will contain the value of f_calc_error that was set by the last macro function which executed. The ABAP coding of a planning book is something like this:
    data: g_flg_calc_error type /SAPAPO/FLAG.
    * SAP will pass g_flg_calc_error variable to all macro
    * functions. When SAP calls a macro function, it does
    * something like this.
    call function '/SAPAPO/MACRO_FUNCTION_HERE'
              plob_values      = i_s_adv_plob_values
              sdp_book         = g_c_advf_sdp_book
              sdp_view         = g_c_advf_sdp_view
              cols_index       = i_t_cols
              value_tab        = l_t_value_tab
              f_calc_error     = g_flg_calc_error
    As you can see, the g_flg_calc_error variable
    is passed in the "changing" part of the call. The macro  function being called can then use the f_calc_error
    variable to change the value of the global
    g_flg_calc_error variable. In fact, the macro function being called can also check (by looking at the f_calc_error variable) if the last macro function reported an error.  The CALC_ERROR macro function just checks the value of f_calc_error parameter (w/c in fact is the value of the g_flg_calc_error variable) and returns "true/X" if the f_calc_error was set to true by the last macro function.
    Hope this helps in clearing things out

  • P.S.Elements. How do i use the clipping mask for painting? I can't quite apply it for anything.

    I'm wondering if the clipping mask can be used for painting on layers. I can't get it to do anything. I'm rendering race car paint schemes. Elements doesn't have paths. I have Gimp but I want to stick with photoshop. Something about Gimp I just didn't feel it

    Could you give an example of what you are trying to do ?
    The concept of clipping mask is not intuitive at all. Besides 'normal' layer masks associated with their layer, the clipping mask is a 'normal' layer having transparency. It has a what was called a 'linked layer' in older version. The 'clipping mask' layer determines transparency of the linked layer (which is shown offset to the right in the layers panel) to show that the effect of the clipping mask is limited to the above linked layer(s). Instead of having one layer with a mask, you have a mask targetting the 'above' layer.
    The difference is that the normal mask uses greyscale values to represent transparency while the clipping mask has real transparency.
    So, the purpose being masking, I don't see how you could use it to paint ?

  • How to use the same script for multiple buttons

    I've only just started using flash so any help would be great!
    I'm creating a blockbusters type game, I have a grid of 20 buttons and I need  them (individually) to turn blue on click and red on double click. I've managed to do it with the first one using this code;
    var clicked:Boolean = false;
    bn1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, bn1click);
    function bn1click(event:MouseEvent):void {
        clicked = true;
        var newColorTransform:ColorTransform = bn1.transform.colorTransform;
        newColorTransform.color = 0x064258;
        bn1.transform.colorTransform = newColorTransform;
    bn1.doubleClickEnabled = true;
    var doubleclicked:Boolean = false;
    bn1.addEventListener(MouseEvent.DOUBLE_CLICK, bn1dclick);
    function bn1dclick(event:MouseEvent):void {
        doubleclicked = true;
        var newColorTransform:ColorTransform = bn1.transform.colorTransform;
        newColorTransform.color = 0xac1e23;
        bn1.transform.colorTransform = newColorTransform;
    Now I'm having trouble getting the same to work for the rest of the buttons, they are each named bn2, bn3 etc. They need to work individually and remain blue/red once clicked. I've tried listing them as addEventListener commands but not having a great deal of success!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    One way to do this is to use arrays to keep track of the buttons and their properties.
    var buttonList:Array = new Array(bn1,bn2,bn3);
    var clickedList:Array = new Array();
    var doubleClickedList:Array = new Array();
    //then use a for loop to assign the functions and properties for each button:
    var thisMany:int = buttonList.length; // this will give you the number of items in the buttonList array
    for(var i:int = 0; i<thisMany; i++) {
         buttonList[i].addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK,btnClick); // assign the click function to each button
         buttonList[i].addEventListener(MouseEvent.DOUBLE_CLICK,btnDClick); // assign the double click function
         clickedList.push(false);  // add a false value for each button to this array
               buttonList[i].doubleClickEnabled = true; // set the double click property for each button
    function btnClick(event:MouseEvent):void {
              var thisButton:int = buttonList.indexOf(;  // figure out which button was clicked as an item in the array
              clickedList[thisButton] = true;  // change the value in the array
               var newColorTransform:ColorTransform = buttonList[thisButton].transform.colorTransform;
        newColorTransform.color = 0x064258;
        buttonList[thisButton].transform.colorTransform = newColorTransform;
    function btnDClick(event:MouseEvent):void {
              var thisButton:int = buttonList.indexOf(;
              doubleClickedList[thisButton] = true;
        var newColorTransform:ColorTransform = buttonList[thisButton].transform.colorTransform;
        newColorTransform.color = 0xac1e23;
        buttonList[thisButton].transform.colorTransform = newColorTransform;
    Now you can have any number of buttons, just add their instance names to the array at the top.

  • NI9203 - Need to know how to set up the FPGA code for multiple NI9203 modules and how to calibrate the data

    Hi. I'm using the NI9203 module to detect pressure, temerature and flow rate of water in a cooling system. I have 17 different inputs coming in therefore i'm using 3 NI9203 modules. I've used the example provided with labview as a base for designing my code. The example can be found here : Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 8.0\examples\CompactRIO\Module Specific\NI 9203.
    I've had no problems when testing this code out for a single NI9203 module but when i add code for 3 modules the code will not compile as my resources are over mapped. Is there a simpler way to program the FPGA code.
    That said how do you go about calibrating the data that's received from the module. Preferably i'd like to write a vi to do the calibrating. Just need help on how to go about writing this vi

    Hi havok,
    Firstly, I would use constants to configure the modules, it'll save some resources on the FPGA.  I'm not typically changing the settings on the fly, so using constants whenever possible helps.  I would also take a look at the following KnowledgeBase article on other changes you can make to the FPGA VI to compile the code:
    The best changes you can make are to use fewer arrays and front panel elements.  This can be done by using a DMA FIFO or constants on the block diagram. 
    Now actually calibrating the data will require you to do it on the host side.  There is an example VI called Binary to Nominal that changes the raw data to something more useful for datalogging, display, etc.  It can be found in some of the example VIs, or in the following link: 

  • Is it safe to use the same passphrase for multiple disks?

    I have a very elaborate passphrase using letters, digits and punctuation marks that I'm fairly confident nobody will ever be able to crack even if they have the seed and hash and a couple of million GPU's to throw at it.
    However, from a cryptography course I know that if two "messages" have been encrypted using the same "pad", you will be able to extract information by or-ing the messages, for example.
    Now I'm sure that the encryption scheme in OS X is much more sophisticated, but just to be sure:
    If I encrypt two disks using the same passphrase, and somebody steals both disks, would that make it easier for them to crack it? Is there some way they could exploit the fact that the passphrases are the same? Could they find data by combining the data on the two disks?
    I assume it's not possible, but just checking.

    Short answer: don't worry.  AES-256 is currently a secure scheme.
    Long answer: If your reference to a "pad" is to the reuse of a so-called one-time pad scheme, that's a very different cryptographic system than what's typically used now, and the attacks against a reused one-time pad are different sorts of cryptographic attacks.
    If you're using a one-time pad for a whole disk, you either need a ginormous one-time pad that's itself as big as the disk, or you'll get data that's repeated; a typical disk has great wads of zeros and ranges of blocks of zeros, after all.
    In modern systems, it's quite common for the same private key to be used for thousands and even millions of messages, when asymmetric encryption is used.
    Now I don't know which encryption algorithm is currently being used to encrypt DMGs, but I'd suspect it's still AES-grade encryption.
    AES works very hard at making the results of the encryption process as close to random as it can manage, which reduces the exposure to frequency-based attacks.  (This is also why effectively-encrypted data can't be compressed; there should be no repeats.)  This randomness is part of the basis for the attacks against the one-time pad; that the output of the pad - the encrypted data - if the one-time pad is re-used - isn't really random.  Particularly if you know (or can guess) some of the cleartext, too.  Or those big blocks of zeros.
    Now the other central discussion here is around how much somebody would pay to decrypt your data.  Because if your data is worth enough to the attacker, then there can potentially be other ways to attempt to gain access, even if AES itself isn't breached. 
    If you're storing some very valuable data (worthy of attacks), then receiving guidance from some yutz like me in an Apple forum probably isn't in your best interest.  But if you're not storing miltary-grade, or financial secrets, or identifying medical data, or credit card data, then AES-256 will do nicely.  And even if you are, AES-256 might be enough.  But check with the crypto and legal folks for details, or with your site security officer.
    And as was correctly noted in an earlier reply, if a password is used once, and once known, an attacker will try it against other systems and servers.  This being another common form of re-use.
    If you're interested here, then get one or two of Bruce Schneier's books on crypto.  If you don't already have them.

  • Using the same library for multiple iTunes IDs

    My wife and I have the same exact library. When she buys something, my computer/ipod/devices are authorized to use it. We both got new laptops and we wanted to refrain from adding too much on them. I have an iMac with the music library on it. I signed up for iTunes match so that I could have my library on my devices and our Apple TV. So the question is, how can I get the same library on her devices, without uploading this library to her laptop?
    Can I simply log out of iTunes on the iMac and then log in as her and sign up for iTunes Match under her ID and go through the process again and all is done?
    We'd like to maintain the separate IDs as she purchases apps on her own and then has a lot of podcast subscriptions that I don't. But again, just trying to get the shared library to her device.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    No, there is no way to do this at this time, and if you make a mistake trying, you can screw yourself up and end up locking yourself out of Match.
    Apple makes a subtle and extremely annoying distinction between "authorization" and "association".  You need "authorization" to play content on a particular computer, and several users with different Apple IDs can authorize their content on a single computer.
    However, to do any of the following:
    -auto-download content
    -download previously purchased content
    -use Match!
    you must "associate" the computer to an Apple ID in addition to "authorizing" it. Only *a single AppleID* may be associated with a computer (not account, computer!) at a time, and this can only be changed once every 90 days. In other words, in this context, it treats the computer just like a mobile device. You can't run Match with more than one user, and Match also precludes anyone else from downloading previously purchased content.
    I recently learned about this the hard way when my son came home from college and used his Apple account to re-download a single TV show on my computer.  When I logged in later to try to use Match, a splash informed me I would have to wait *90 days* to switch back to my AppleID!  Luckily, I emailed the iTunes store and they were able to reset it.  I'm not sure if they have single incident forgiveness policy, if they were able to see exactly how much money I've put in their pockets over the  last couple years, or if they were simply smart enough to realize that *not* doing so could only lose them money in the future.
    Add to this the fact that you now "associate" (with a different definition) your AppleID with your *user account* to use cloud services, and you have three different and inconsistent ways your AppleID is used on a computer.
    Hopefully, Apple will clean all of this up at some point.
