    Yes, I get that clients can have what they want because they are paying for it.

    But that's not the point of the role of a graphic designer is it?

  • Saving photos to flash drives

    I have a 512mb flash drive that is completely empty. I just tried to save a 280kb JPEG file to it and it wouldn't go - saying that there wasn't enough free space. This has me really confused. Does anyone know what's going on?

    Is there a lock feature on it? I had the exact same error and once I unlocked it I was all set.

      How do you unlock it?

        If you're trying to save the photo through a Mac try taking it to a PC and deleting the "trashes" file. I had this problem with my drive too. This file doesn't show up on Macs, but there may be a way to see it that I'm unaware of.

              Depends on the card. There might be a little button on the actual flash drive with a lock and unlock feature. Mine does.

                Same thing happened to me...I was about to send it back until I found a switch on it that was the same color as the flash drive....it was so well blended!

                      on this note, kinda a no brainer tip but many dont do it. on a PC (not sure about macs) use the "remove hardware safely" tool when unpluggin flash/thumb drives, they are know to easily be corrupted for not unplugging safely.

                        I think the ejection on mac is much easier than PC.....one reason why I like mac more than pc.!

                          Another thing to look at when this happens: hidden files.
                          Your drive can fill up with hidden files. The option to show hidden files is in the control panel.

                            It was the trash right?
