    In camera blanking out a grey sky

    Thanks for that but it was the 'in-camera' settings I was trying to find. I have, after a bit of web searching, found that the zebra (stripes)/highlighting setting is not available on my model, it was added in the next generation! https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/support/articles/00077788...

    In camera blanking out a grey sky

    Well I tried several ways to produce this effect but without success, anything I tried overexposed the non-sky parts of the picture. Nay suggestions welcome!

    In camera blanking out a grey sky

    Thanks for your input. Ah I see, yes I did not understand it. Won't that have the tendency blow out the rest of the image? Obviously not to white, as the areas will not be as bright as the sky, but definitely overexposed. I guess if the image is recorded as RAW it can be brought back, is...

    In camera blanking out a grey sky

    Thanks. The neat part was that the remainder of the scene seemed to have a 'normal' exposure. I have checked my Camera and there are no clipping settings, so it looks like if I want to try it it will have to be in LR or PS.

    In camera blanking out a grey sky

    I was watching a professional photograher taking several outdoor pictures under a grey sky, full cloud cover. I think he was using a Canon 7D. He showed me its Monitor image and I remarked that it was showing the sky as black. He was using a setting in his camera that deliberately blacked out...

    Lightroom 6.3, folder and photo location

    I am an occasional amateur user of LR so I am not interested in the subscription products. However, in error, I loaded LR CC trial version which seemed to overwrite LR 6 and I have had to reinstall it. On opening LR 6 all my folders and photo files appear to be listed but their true location...

    Background processes

    Linwood thanks again your advice. On this side of the pond we have the same joke, "buying Tower Bridge". Two nations separated by a common language! I had already turned off the update switch in Acrobat 8 and the process suggested in your last link seems torture, an uninstal should be just...

    Background processes

    Thanks for replies everyone. Answering points raised. Cletus: There are two Adobe exe services using more than 50% of the CPU, but no Adobe program is being run. I also thought there could be an obstruction in the cooling channels but I don't relish taking it apart, it is thin and flimsy! It is...

    Background processes

    Thanks for your reply. I have tried several reboots after making changes including the disabling both the Adobe services shown at the top of the screenshot. No better, they keep coming back !!! Do you mean all Adobe products, it's a very long list !!

    Background processes

    About a week ago my Win10 laptop fan started to constantly run. I thought it was a program downloading/updating, or something similar but now, a week later it is still whirring away. I started investigating and it looks like it could be due to Adobe updating processes costantly running. Please...

    Unwanted external editors

    Thanks everyone. Yes a bit clumsy, the delete option only appears after selecting an external editor. I guess it saves designing addditional popup windows. As an aside I seem to think LR 6.3 opens a lot faster than its predeccessors. pnb

    Unwanted external editors

    I have the same problem but 'Clear' does not remove them, just adds (Edited) to their name. Even tried closing and opening LR after, still no joy? Thanks
