    Need Recommendations

    I have a fairly high end Samsung tablet (I've never been tempted into iWorld) and like it very well, but I would not use it as my main editing platform - I just don't feel I'd have enought control with just the touch screen. All my editing is done on my desktop, but if I did need to edit on the...

    Computer Advice

    Hi Chris, The only thing I notice is that it only comes with 500Gb SSD - no hard drive. So if your existing drives are external you could use those, or add an internal hdd

    Computer Advice

    Hi Chris, Since you are in the UK I recommend looking at Chillblast. I got my last two desktops from them, and been very pleased - they use good quality components and assemble them well. Warning - they are not cheap! They make a couple of desktops aimed at photo editing. Their top of the...

    Print module won't remember printer model

    Have you tried trashing the presets? I've had a couple of printer issues (I think one was also to do with not retaining settings) that I resolved that way. I know it's not clear why it should work, but it's always a good thing to try.

    Version 11.3 wouldn't even run

    It's probably a result of the endless war between marketing and engineering :rolleyes:

    Preventing high quality photos from being downloaded from a Website

    To add to the technical options, on Chrome at least you can CTRL U and inspect the code. You can usually spot the image and download from there.

    Lightroom Classic catalog database schema

    Not publicly documented frees Adobe to make changes as and when they wish, so I doubt they would do it.

    Pure Raw

    FWIW I also now start in PhotoLab. I find I prefer it's output as a starting point for LR, for my m4/3 photos. In effect it's a "soft cull", because only the images that I expect to need further work end up in LR. The others I still keep on the disk

    Need help printing a B&W Photo

    I normally have Lightroom handle colour, as I guess most of us do. However,if I print a b&w image, I get a colour cast (in my case green) This can be avoided by having the printer handle colour, just for b&w prints. I don't know if it's related to your problem (I have a different camera system...

    Crop First Or Last?

    I'm with Clee - crop early. If nothing else, the histogram will then reflect the cropped image, not the original full sized one

    advantages with "Automatically Write to XMP "

    I take your point Paul, I guess it boils down to how quickly you are likely to discover a Catalogue corruption, and how widespread it is (say just one or two photos, or an unreadable Catalogue). I don't know - any ideas?

    advantages with "Automatically Write to XMP "

    If you have a system backup with versioning, for a year, say, isn't that pretty much as good against Catalogue corruption?
