    Returning to Lr Classic...Catalog Set Up Questions...

    I'm not so technically driven, or gear driven. When all is said and done, I just want to make good photographs. That said, I work solely from my MacBook Pro; I also go to coffee shops, etc., and if I'm doing photo work, then my MacBook and primary external drive goes with me. (I have a main...

    Actually, some do...but not ours. I'll set a dark and stormy for him in the cockpit...:)

    Returning to Lr Classic...Catalog Set Up Questions...

    Thanks everyone, for the replies. I was leaning towards keeping the catalog on the laptop HD, which is SSD, for the performance reasons. I live full-time on my sailboat, and so the laptop and EHD's are always with me.I just wanted to be sure I considered the possibilities and pros/cons...

    Returning to Lr Classic...Catalog Set Up Questions...

    Hello all, After nearly a year away from LR, I'm looking at coming back and doing things a bit differently than I did before. I didn't pay proper attention to the catalog set up the first time around. This caused massive and unending frustration with Lightroom; hence my decision to dump it and...

    Moving LR Image Folders - not Catalog - to New External hard Drive

    Thanks Jim, for your input and responses. For the moment, I have decided to not put further effort into to fixing the LR issues. I've quite a lot on my plate, and after consulting with two very close and trusted photographer friends, one of whom is responsible for getting me to use LR way back...

    Moving LR Image Folders - not Catalog - to New External hard Drive

    Those are the instructions I followed - or tried to. I was quite confused by steps 1 & 2, particularly the steps to 'show the folder hierarchy' and the instructions around selecting a 'parent folder.' I have hundreds of folders and each one is indicated to have a 'parent folder.' Should there be...

    Moving LR Image Folders - not Catalog - to New External hard Drive

    Hello all - My 2TB external hard drive is finally full, and I need to move my LR folders to a new 5TB external hard drive. My LR Catalog now resides on my MacBook Pro SSD, which is where I want it to stay. However, I prefer to keep my photos organized on separate external hard drives, hence...

    Android/Samsung Galaxy S10+ Users -

    I have somehow broken the glass cover over the rear lens on my Samsung Galaxy S10+ phone. There is a distinct lack of sharpness in my images, hence my description of the broken bit as a 'lens.' I'm curious if other Samsung owners have ever dealt with this. Also, is it repairable? or, am I...

    Calling All Mac Gurus...

    Well, I didn't make it long...I've restored it to the default. It seems that something, somewhere, along the way was changed.

    Calling All Mac Gurus...

    Thanks - that did it. I was able to remove the Guest user icon from my login screen on my MacBook Pro this current one replaced, but it doesn't seem to be an option any longer. Curious... We'll see how soon I tire of typing in both the username and password in favor of a cleaner screen. :unsure:

    EDIT: I should add, I'm not wanting to remove/delete the Guest user account, as it serves some purposes...what I want to do is remove the link from login page so it's not visible...

    Calling All Mac Gurus...

    I have a new MacBook Pro 16", fully current and updated. How can I remove the 'Guest User' option/account which shows on the login screen? The options for the Guest user are all unchecked/turned off. The 'Find My Mac' option is unchecked/turned off. The 'minus' symbol to remove/delete the Guest...
