  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    Can I convert to B&W in Lightroom and remove all colour data?

    300 dpi is a standard for offset printing. Other environments may require less, for example ink jet printing is OK with 240 dpi. For PDF / Kindle I have no clue. Did you try with a lower dpi ? Bernard

    Pixel low quality views in the Develop and Library mode

    Yes Louie, I agree. I should be more precise with my above question : 'Then when you display these photos, do you still have the problem ? ' : in Library mode. Alessendro, when you say 'when I visualize the photos in full screen ' do you mean screen size or 100% ? Bernard

    Pixel low quality views in the Develop and Library mode

    Alessendro, Can you try the following : In the catalog parameters, set the size of standard previews to auto. Select some photos in the grid view, maybe 10 or more, and then build a standard preview for these selected photos. Then when you display these photos, do you still have the problem ...

    Pixel low quality views in the Develop and Library mode

    Hi Alessandro, A few thoughts about your post : . I was not able to view your video . 4 GB of ram is a bit low, and may affect performances; being a PC user, I don't know how easy it would be to upgrade to 8 GB . development and library modules do not use the same previews, so going from to the...

    Lightroom working gamut

    You tried to print to a file with both rendering intents, and they are the same ?? Huuummmm....... Lightroom ( PS as well) is using the Adobe color engine for color conversion between color spaces, and this engine is well known to give excellent results. I don't think anybody can do a better...

    You should read more carefully what I wrote : print to file gives you a jpg image, with the rendering intent you want

    Lightroom working gamut

    Instead of exporting from LR (in sRGB), you could use the print module, print to file, and then you can choose sRGB and the rendering intent, perceptual for example.

    Lightroom working gamut

    Ok, but you know that going to PS, as I suggested above, you can use ACR (Camera raw). ACR and LR use exactly the same algorithms, and a very similar user interface. I don't think Adobe will ever change LR color management because 1) it is well designed and good enough for most people 2) for the...

    Lightroom working gamut

    Hi @ilarionmoga, If I understand you correctly, your problems come from the fact that Lightroom uses internally Prophoto, and that cannot be changed. If you would like to use LR for cataloging and managing your images, but not for developing, you could send your raw files directly (without...

    Small bug in LR ?

    The situation I described in the first post happened to me, it's not just trying to find bugs. And I did not realize immediately that I had two VC of the same name, and I could not understand why some development changes were , sometimes, not applied, because I was looking at the 'other'...

    Small bug in LR ?

    Thanks clee01 for the explanation, which makes sense. However, that there is an explanation does not mean, IMHO, that it's not a bug, or at least let's say an annoyance, because the result is that two photos have the same name, a situation that one tries to avoid.

    Small bug in LR ?

    I think I found a small bug in LR, and I would like someone to confirm please. . create a virtual copy #1 . create a virtual copy #2 . delete VC #1 . create a VC : it will be named VC #2 , so you have now two VC with the same name. . but if you create a VC now, it will be #3 !! Strange ... LR...

    Catalogs Most efficient way of backing up catalog

    The WAL file is a log (journal) of updates to the catalog, not yet written to the catalog itself. If the WAL file is present, it means either LR is not closed, or it was not closed properly (power failure or abort.). In both cases it's not a good idea to back up the catalog, the backup will be...

    Setting printer resolution

    If you really want the best printing quality, and are ready to do some testing, then have a look at Qimage Ultimate. I am using it for years, and from time to time doing comparisons with LR .... If you don't buy it, there is still a lot of information on printing quality. Bernard

    Export Emailing pictures are inline not attachments?

    Yes you are right, I did not realize it does not work with LR.
