    Super Resolution

    Can you please elaborate on your last sentence? I'm probably not reading it correctly but it implies to me that you are not too impressed with Super Resolution. Regarding Topaz GigaPixel, last time I looked, for best results, it relied on online access to a vast Topaz AI database. I don't see...

    Super Resolution

    OK, I see. I was looking at it more like another though powerful Develop Module feature. It's not that at all. I guess you've answered my question. Thanks.

    Super Resolution

    I think this was covered before but now that we have Super Resolution in LrC proper, a recap might be good. I was wondering when is the best time in PP to do it? It seems to me logically after cropping but before sharpening might be best. I know, I should experiment myself but it would be a...

    Retouching with Photoshop

    Good advice. Will do... or rather try to do. How far have I got? Nowhere really. Still trying to get comfortable with layers, tools and the terminology. With Lr, if I find myself down a rabbit burrow, I just click on the bottom of the history panel and start again. No harm done. With Ps...

    Retouching with Photoshop

    That's very generous of you. However, the image is of a relative that is still with us so I can't really post it.

    Retouching with Photoshop

    Many of you have grown up with Ps and find it intuitive, perhaps more so than Lr. I'm the reverse. Lr is a piece of cake fore me but I just can't get my head around Ps. I have an image scanned off an old damaged transparency that I'd like to retouch but it's a bit beyond Lr. I figure I need...

    Making a non-lightroom version of my catalogue

    If you are wanting to make your images more accessible to family, friends and other, there are many photo hosting web sites to choose from for just that purpose. LR has plug-ins for some of them. I put my best images into SmugMug. It's a very simple matter to upload images although if you...

    View > People

    I never use the face detect feature. I don't need to because I have all people I know keyworded and I wouldn't trust Adobe to pick my friend anyway. However, when filtering, I press "P" to pick and image and occasionally to "U" to unpick. In the process, I often inadvertently hit "O" that...

    Keyword Hierarchies

    I too was seriously looking at Capture One. They claimed they could translate keywords. I wasn't convinced. That was the deal breaker for me. Had I lost the keyword hierarchy, my catalogue would have been little more than a skip bin full of random photos.

    Keyword Hierarchies

    Yikes, that really puts me off cloudy. I depend so much on a deep keyword hierarchy. My folder structure is in year/month/day order so looks at it from a different perspective. It is only the risk of possible loss of LrC's powerful keyword hierarchical structure that has stopped me moving to...

    Syncronizing Folders

    Yes, it sneaks up on you. My personal view is that if you don't want it in your catalogue then you don't really want it so delete it completely. That way your folders will be "clean" and you can regularly do a folder syncronisation to ensure no valued images have dropped out of the catalogue...

    Edit in Ps

    Thanks! That makes sense. Silly me, had I gone all the way through and saved, it would have been evident.

    Edit in Ps

    I have Preferences>External Editing>Edit in Adobe Photoshop 2021>File Format set at TIFF yet when I send a DNG to Ps it goes through as a DNG not a TIFF. I don't use it much but my recollection is that it was always converted to a TIFF. Has something changed?

    Syncronizing Folders

    Just wondering how often people check folder synchronization. Being a bit of a neat freak, I do it fairly regularly. I'm often amazed to find loose imaged that I'm sure I had deleted. Perhaps I hit the wrong button.
