shutter activations
« on: May 15, 2014, 01:42:58 PM »
How, or where, does PM indicate my activations for my cameras? I am told it does, but I am clueless as to where this is or how to find it.
Thanks

Use the {actuations} variable in your Info Text.  You will then see it in the Preview window info pane, Info Tool tips on the Contact Sheet (when turned on), and on the Image Info submenu when you right-click on a photo.

Not all cameras have a shutter count, and some that do have the data encrypt it so that applications cannot read the value.

HTH,
