    I made a mistake importing files into LR, then formatted my SD card without realizing the images weren't transferred. Arggh! These were vacation photos that I really wanted back. I tried a couple of free software solutions but ended up getting Wondershare Photo Recovery. It was pretty easy. I really hated paying for that stupid mistake, but if there's ever a next time, I'm set :)
    Here are are a few I wanted back:

    Here are a couple more. These are pictures of the Old Mill near Little Rock, AR. It was pictured in the opening sequence of "Gone With the Wind" - fun place to take photos. I used my old Minolta 28mm MD Rokkor-X with the a6000. The first was edited A LOT - I'm going for a look similar to some other photos I like. I think I have a way to go doing this. Second is original for comparison. Tips and criticism requested :)

    Looking again I see too much blur on right of edited image. Will have to adjust that!

    that must have been a terrible feeling! Oh No.....:hopelessness: possibly followed by :help: and :yahoo:

    Glad you got it sorted. I like gorillas #2.
    Since you are going for an old timey look in the mill picture...perhaps you could edit out the black T that is just below the horizon in the middle?

    Thanks - didn't see that one. I'll remove it, lessen that extra blur and maybe shift the white balance a bit. Right, it was a real "oh no" moment. I waited 12 hours before deciding to get the software and get them back. Have a bunch not yet processed. Mostly family stuff, and some shots of P. Allen Smith's house which is very cool.

    Nice pics. For future reference Recuva by Piriform is a great free recovery software. Used it a few times in a scrape.

    Good to know. I hope the next person that's in this situation finds your reference for that software.
