Calling All Photographers to Explain Photo Weirdness

As some of you know, I haven’t stopped traveling since my accidental vacation.  My brother and I are spending a couple of weeks celebrating his 60th birthday by going back to our birth state of Indiana.  We traveled by train across the country from Portland, OR to Chicago, spent a couple of days and ended up in South Bend, IN.  I’ll try not to be so long-winded about this trip, but now I have a serious problem, and I need your help, if you can.

Navy Pier101R I downloaded my pictures from my EOS Rebel to my computer with a new card reader, 467 of them, then I formatted my disk.  You know what that means!!!  When I first looked at the pictures they were all fine.  Then, all of a sudden weird, things started appearing to the pictures.

See the weirdness in the bottom right corner? What is that???

Some are much worse than others. Some are just fine. like my first picture.  Here’s the other weird thing.  On my finder, I see the pictures just perfectly.  It’s only when I click on them to open them, they go to Bridge first then to Photoshop, and they get weird in Bridge.

Does anyone know what happened?  HELP!  🙂

  1. Lack of memory to handle the complete picture. Tell Bridge to “Browse quickly by preferring embedded images.” That solved the same problem for me. Regardless of which view you’re in, in Bridge, look directly under the word “METADATA” in the upper center right. You’ll see two little checker boards underneath, and the left checkerboard is the embedded images preference.


  2. P.S. If you click on the right checker board, it has options, and the option that is probably checked for you is “Always High Quality.” If you don’t have the memory to use always high quality, you’ll get mess-ups like you have.


  3. Russle Ray to the rescue. How cool! I hope you get to retrieve back the pictures. My external hard drive with all my photos from different parts of the globe were lost when that darn thing broke. I hope to fix it when I get back to US and have it take it to Fry’s . Grrr, I have to wait til then.


          • Very cool. The only real train trips I’ve ever taken have been in Australia and New Zealand. It was cheaper to travel around the country via train than plane. And I got to see so much more. I’ll never forget watching kangaroos flattening a sugar cane field with their hijinx as we went by. Makes you understand why they’re considered pests in Australia.


          • I never knew they were considered pests! It must be quite a long trip to go across country in Australia. Do the trains go all the way across or just along the coasts?


          • I went up the East Coast as far as Cairns to see the Great Barrier Reed and down as far as Melbourne. I also went from Sydney west into the Blue Mountains and back. I took the train from Melbourne to Adelaide, then up from Adelaide to Alice Springs and back. Then from Adelaide to Perth across the Nullabor Plain, the longest stretch of straight track in the world, from what they say. It’s a 3-day trip from Adelaide to Perth. It was a fantastic trip. I spent a couple of months in Australia and a month in New Zealand. Great countries with beautiful scenery. In New Zealand, though, I usually took busses. Between the sounds, glaciers, mountains, Bay of Islands and rolling green landscape, New Zealand can’t be beat. And lots of sheep.
