    Lr 5 switching too custom order

    Thanks for explaining . Seems a case of put up with it or go elsewhere . Not too much to match Lr on the market so i guess I will put up with it. I'm am slowly getting a better photo filing system sorted for post Lr days . After a massive stuff up by the computer fixer [and me] I have bigger...

    Lr 5 switching too custom order

    No --- I think what I'm doing is >dng >tiff>affinity>save back to Lr Started this about 6 hours ago before trying find a "pattern" --- loaded and closed a lot of different files and Lr didn't change to custom sorting . That is until I wasn't looking or thinking about it and all of a sudden it...

    Lr 5 switching too custom order

    G'day; it's been awhile so my old faithful Lr5 must be behaving. So glad I had it and didn't think I needed Lr6 or beyond I usually set 'sort' to File name mostly, however Lr is switching to custom order or added order -- usually happens when I send a file to an external editor like Affinity...

    Lightroom only subscription

    Thanks Victoria; sort of doubted it myself. Au$15 down here and I agree that is pretty good value. It's the sort of "locked in" I don't like

    Lightroom only subscription

    G'day; it's been awhile . I was getting a bit left behind with my old faithful lr5 which basically does what I need. But the question is; has there been any mention / thought that Adobe would have a lightroom only subscription as some stage . I don't need Ps or the Cloud part. Not even sure I...

    Converting raw files to DNG

    I liked dng in the past because windows could read and display them .

    Converting raw files to DNG

    G'day; long time no chat! I'm still snapping away at mostly unimportant subjects for something to do --- still using Lr5 mostly; On1'18 (sometimes :() and Affinity :) has replaced Elements 12. Not sure where to post this old -- antique:) -- Lr5 stuff so you are welcome to move or remove...

    Nik Collection is back

    Something I have heard on the web (so its true LOL) be carefully downloading the DXO trial version if you already have Nik on your computer as you may well lose your Nik program until you pay the $49 (Au$64). More than happy to be corrected if that is not right :) Bit hard to add new features...

    Reign of DSLRs almost over?

    nothing is perfect; but I do like the EVF; they have greatly improved and there is something about seeing the subject very much like it will be recorded. The bonus is having a live histogram in the viewfinder and being able to quickly adjust the exposure if need be. No need to check the...

    Reign of DSLRs almost over?

    DSLRs are bit old fashioned these days --- I have never regretted going with a mirrorless camera but I have no use for a FF these days

    Is DNG still viable?

    would certainly make it so much easier and sensible Tony to have just one RAW file like DNG. I believe that is why dng was introduced in the first place -- correct me if I'm wrong as you have a greater understand of such matters Whoops!!! I typed that yesterday :whistling: I need another sticky...

    Is DNG still viable?

    For me, DNG are still viable, and needed as my newer camera files (lumix FZ300) cannot be read by my older Lr5. Bit of pain having to run the files through Adobe DNG converter but it doesn't take much time. I leave the converter set to convert raw files in a "New raw files" folder and send the...

    Out of my depth editing raw files

    Thank you for those kind words -- no point making digital photography harder than it already is imo Yeah; the hair colour was a bit of a giveaway :p :eek: :rofl: The important thing is you asked the questions; too many don't! A few general comments Don't get bogged down in techo stuff. ...
