    Great pics!!
    Beautiful lavicola, Graham! Who did you get it from?
    I too use Lightroom, and find it to be a superb photo editing tool. Truly a five star utility.

    I'm using Photoshop Elements 11. Not as powerful as Creative Suites, but for someone on a tight budget I'll take it. I plan on upgrading to Lightroom and/or CS6 once I have the resources. CS3 is too old to read the RAW files from my E-5, even with plugins.

    I got the N. lavicola from mksmith, who got it from Mikulas, who got it from Bob Harrell, who got the seeds from the guy who operates Nepenthes Around The House. Quite a daisy chain. The latest pither that it opened blows everything else in my collection out of the water in terms of color! And it's a solid 2.75" tall! I'll get pics of it once I upload my photos from the CCPS meeting.

    Adobe has a free tool for converting RAW files to a more generic format that various CS versions can read: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=5486

    I tried that. The Olympus E-5 wasn't included. They have expansions for CS5 for my camera, but they stopped making expansions for CS3 years before my camera model debuted. PSE will suffice for now. The only think it doesn't have that I would like it to is sharpening filters.

    My haul from the first CCPS meeting. I did not pay anything for any of this! Included are D. androsacea, D. omissa, D. pulchella, D. roseanna, D. nitidula x pygmaea, N. truncata, N. 'Lady Pauline', N. 'Redneck', N. mirabilis x (Viking x rafflesiana), N. thorellii (d) x (macfarlanei x sibuyanensis), N. thorellii (d) x (spectabilis x veitchii), S. alata 'Night' x 'Red' sib., S. flava var. ornata, S. flava var. rubricorpora, S. rubra Brunswick Co. NC, S. psittacina 'Green', and U. nephrophylla. I'm probably forgetting some.

    The cuttings are N. 'Lady Pauline', N. 'Redneck', N. mirabilis x (Viking x rafflesiana), N. thorellii (d) x (macfarlanei x sibuyanensis), and N. thorellii (d) x (spectabilis x veitchii). The N. thorellii (d) is actually N. bokorensis, which is still a nice plant.
