Too old for Tuesday




"There's ageism in everything. I don't give a hoot. 
It isn't what other people think; 
it's what you think. 
But it's hard to come to terms with getting older. 
I admire people like Vivienne Westwood." 
Cyndi Lauper






"I've been running a full marathon every year 
for more than 20 years, 
and my record is getting worse. 
Getting older, 
getting worse. 
It's natural. "
Haruki Murakami

When Apps Misbehave


Friends, I have 100's of old Kodachromes like these on Kodak Photo CDs which were cutting edge 20 years ago. After various upgraded versions of Photoshop and Mac OS changes, I'm unable to open the .pcd file format, which Kodak no longer supports. 

Can anybody recommend an App that they have used that works? The shot below is a bad scan by a lab - barely sharp and overly contrasty. The Kodak .pcd ones are 100 times better. 


Thanks in advance
