Q) I just bought my first digital SLR; actually, it's my first SLR, too. I've been spending nights and weekends trying to learn all of the various features, but there's one feature that I'm just not getting. Depth-of-field preview doesn't seem to work-all it does is make the viewfinder darker.

Q) Red-eye has been a problem that I thought might go away with my new camera. I talked to someone and they were talking about red-eye reduction and red-eye correction. When I took a picture, they said that my camera didn't have red-eye reduction because the flash only fired once, but my manual says it does. What's going on?

Q) I read your HelpLine column a few months back about photographing fireworks. Thanks for the tips. I really like the shots I got, but I'm wondering about overexposure. Also, the center of many of the fireworks seemed to be just plain white with no color. Was I exposing wrong?

Helpline October 2007Switching Hard Drives

Q) I had to replace my C drive and, as a result, reload all my software. This meant resetting preferences in my programs, etc. I had spent considerable time in Adobe Bridge classifying my pictures in various categories. Now that I reloaded CS2 and Bridge from scratch, those categories are "lost." I have the old C drive set up so I can access some of the information on it. Is there a file I can copy from the old drive onto the new drive that would restore my categories in Bridge?

Q) I appreciate your recent advice on keeping files backed up (the June and September issues of PCPhoto). I'd add one more caution: If you're using an automated backup program (i.e,. one running automatically on a schedule), be sure that the program is actually running and that there's still room on the drive to which you're backing up...
