    Changing from LR 4.1 (Cloudy) to LR Classic for a new user.

    Thank you for your quick reply Victoria. I have warned him about the 4GB of RAM also, so I guess we'll find out if it works....slowly.

    Changing from LR 4.1 (Cloudy) to LR Classic for a new user.

    Hi everyone. I'm after some direction on the best way to do the above for a friend who is a subscriber, who is just shooting Canon RAWs. He's only shot about 60 images to date, & has ended up on the LR App program whereas (after discussion !) it seems that the latest version of LR Classic would...

    LR6 to replace LR4.4

    sie, you should probably update your version of LR to 6.14, as it's easy to do, free and it's as far as the standalone version of LR is going to go. I've followed a similar route to you - just with an additional step. LR4.4 -> LR5.7 -> LR6.14, so that all of my cameras & lenses are supported...

    Mac OSX upgrade from 10.13.5 to 10.13.6 High Sierra.

    Hello everyone. I just thought that I'd ask the question here as to whether anyone has experienced any issues with LR6.14 when doing the latest Mac OSX upgrade to 10.13.6 High Sierra ? MTIA. Ian.

    Best way to install Lightroom 6 upgrade from Lightroom 5

    I'm re-visiting this thread as I have decided to upgrade LR5.7 to LR6 whilst I read more about LR Classic to see if the new features would be of benefit. I had no problems getting LR6 working, but it shows as LR6.0 and when I check for updates, I get told that there aren't any. So my question is...

    Someone please help with this import issue

    Hi Jay. I'm using LR5.7 and have with the last 4 Mac operating systems, and it doesn't matter if I'm copying 1 or 101 photos to the HDD - they always have come up as thumbnail size. Mine would normally have only one image in the top left of the internal box, but other than that, the import...

    Best way to install Lightroom 6 upgrade from Lightroom 5

    Hi John. What you are proposing to do should be similar to when I upgraded from LR4.4 to LR5.x, hence me chipping in here. When you have downloaded LR6.6.1, you will have both a LR5 AND a LR6 icon in Launchpad in the Dock of your Mac. Just open LR6.6 and you should then get prompted to 'convert'...

    What to do when your PC's Hard Drive AND overflow EHD are both nearing capacity !

    Brilliant guys. Thank you for going to the trouble to give me these options, & explaining what not to do. Much appreciated.

    What to do when your PC's Hard Drive AND overflow EHD are both nearing capacity !

    Hi everyone. I'm asking this question as I've just returned from a BIG trip and now have around 140GB of RAW photos to handle. They are currently residing on the hard drive of my 2012 Macbook Pro, with a 512GB hard drive, and I'm using LR5.7.1. I have the RAW files from earlier trips on a 2TB...

    recommendation for "drive bay" memory card reader

    Hi Phil. I use a Lexar USB3 CF card reader with my Canon 7D2, obtained for about $45 (Australian) on e-Bay. Springs shut to keep dust etc out of the slots.

    Complentary colors in LR

    Johan, Cyan = Blue + Green, but you are absolutely correct that only two sliders are required to enable colour corrections for all three primary & all three secondary colours in any scene. Out of interest, has anyone ever worked out if there is a unit correlation between Colour Temperature's...

    Pros & Cons of the HP Pavilion HP 15-AB227TX laptop for LR use.

    Thanks for the comments Ken and Cletus. I use a late 2012 rMBP, but I'm going to be helping out the HP owner get going with LR, & I was under-whelmed by the screen when seeing images on it for the first time. Agreed on the need for an EHD to keep enough of the SSD free for LR functions. At least...
