I just downloaded Version 2.6.3 (3179) for my Mac and now the image previews for my Nikon D200's NEF files are very, very small inside the preview window.  The Google Earth geocoding panel previews are also very small within the window but JPG files aren't. 

In the previous version I had the image previews filled the window.

The JPG files are fine but the Raws are just too small to see.

Sorry for the late reply. We live on the road so getting good internet connections or at all is sometimes a big challenge.

At the moment we're in La Paz, Bolivia and as soon as I can get a strong enough connection I will send you a sample file.

What's the email address you'd like me to send it to?

Ok I sent you a sample RAW NEF from my D200. I used this email pierre.bernard@houdah.com 

It took two hours to load to the server. I really hope you got it.

Hi!

Thanks a bunch. I did indeed get it.

I will see to fix previews with the next update.

A few of things that annoy the hell out of me lately while using HoudahGeo other than the small previews.

Ok can there be a way to have the track log remember the track log folder separately from the image folder? After loading the track log the program remembers the last folder it opened rather than this folder holds tracks and this folder holds images and visa versa.

After I adjust the camera set up time the next window flashes for a second and closes.  That window I think is really important but has been closing before I can make any kind of adjustments.

Is there a way to make the program ignore the time on the computer?  I want the track log times and the images to be the only times that matter.  Seems I have to always set my clock on my mac back to Japan time because I keep my garmin and my camera on Osaka time.

I hope I explained this well enough.  I have a weird feeling I am not making sense.

Hi!

I have read through the code that generates previews. There is no optimization that should cause it to pick up smaller previews from the NEF files. It draws them from scratch. Now I wonder if it may be somehow pointing to a thumbnail created by Lightroom.

1. This has been requested repeatedly. It is on my todo list.

2. This is normal behavior. But I am aware it confuses many users. The current plan is to address this in the course of a major yet unscheduled update. You may reach that window by going to Geocode > Geocode from Tracks and Waypoints

3. HoudahGeo does not at all depend on the time zone your computer is set to. Some Adobe products however have the sad habit of tagging images with your computer time zone. HoudahGeo will then pick up that erroneous information from the image file. A recent update added an option to the Camera Setup sheet to ignore time zones embedded in image files.

Hi!

I just checked the .NEF file you emailed me. It does not include embedded time zone information.

Processing that file should work fine no matter what time zone your computer is set to.

I'm starting to question also how my garmin software timestamps tracks.  I recently shot a lot of photos in the Salar de Uyuni and the tracks were downloaded with the computer set to local time.  I noticed that the waypoints made on that trip had the GTC 9 (Osaka time) stamped on them in the right places but the tracks that go with them were off by a looooong time.  Maybe I'm just seeing things because that shouldn't matter but I'll double check. 

Today I have my comp set to Osaka time like my garmin and my camera and the tracks from today seem to be aligning up right.  Starting to wish I had a garmin I could physically connect to my nikon so I wouldn't have to worry about synching tracks and all.  

I'd still use HoudahGeo to fine tune things and the costs in time spent would be way less.  That type of garmin + the cable though are more than twice the cost of my current device.

I suspected LR as the culprit.  Will have to rework my work flow again... yet again.

Hi!

GPX track log files should only contain GMT timestamps.

As a Nikon owner you are lucky enough to have the option to get a GPS to connect directly to your camera: http://gps-camera.eu/shop.html

Yeah getting a direct input type of device may be what I'll do in the future.  Thanks for the info.

Those are much cheaper than what I was thinking of getting.... GPS. Cable. And Cable.
