    How do you catalog your photos?

    As for editing software - yes I use other software. 90% of what I do is done in LR Classic But I also use Photoshop, and the Topaz suite of DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI, and occasionally Gigapixel AI; mostly on my "best" photos or very good ones shot at very high ISO. Very occasionally I'll use NIK...

    How do you catalog your photos?

    As it would me. I don't travel as much anymore so a desktop with LRC is just fine for 90% of what I do. But if I could have LR Cloudy on my travel laptop, I'd be just fine. As it is now, I use my second copy of LTC on my laptop, make a new catalog when I travel, and merge it when I return. That...

    HDD or SSD for working drive?

    I have a couple of internal SSD drives on my pc desktop. I import my raw files into a folder I call "Work in Process". This will consist of a number of subfolders. After I am finished with them, I just have Lightroom drag them into a "History " folder I maintain on a spinner HDD. But I really...

    How do you catalog your photos?

    My simple answer to the OP's question of "How do you Catalog your Photos" is -- not as well as I want to, or should. I know the Krogh theory; I just am not consistent in my practice of it with respect to Key Words. Every so often, I force myself to revisit my "good" photos and add appropriate...

    Alternatives to Blurb to make ebooks?

    Not according to anything I can find on the web with a Google search. I'd stick with Blurb until something else happens.

    How to use Lightroom v11 to de-noise and sharpen?

    Sorry Keith, but I'll end my input here. I come from the school of positive education, not negative criticism. I don't know anything about the OP - experience, camera, goals, etc - and I am not going to guess. The OP asked a simple software question, and I tried to answer that. I don't give...

    How to use Lightroom v11 to de-noise and sharpen?

    The OP asked a question -- I just want to know is there any software can make attached jpg photo better? I tried to answer them. I think I did.

    How to use Lightroom v11 to de-noise and sharpen?

    Here is the whole bird. I had LR add some contrast and texture and clarity before I cropped. Then sharpened in Topaz AI - Motion blur. I tried to reduce the sharpening a bit so it did not look over sharpened Still decent. As Conrad said above, different areas should be treated differently. If...

    How to use Lightroom v11 to de-noise and sharpen?

    I took it into LR, then I used Topaz Sharpen - Motion Blur. I did not play with it by varying parameters, but it did a decent job on this very small image.

    Total Number Of Images Does Not Equal Number of Master Plus Virtual.

    Like Gnits, I could open and close LR 11.3.1 and occasionally get different attribute numbers, but generally only varying by 1 or 2; sometimes by just redoing the counts in a different order. I never got full agreement with the "All Photographs" number until I selected all the photographs and...

    Total Number Of Images Does Not Equal Number of Master Plus Virtual.

    It looks like it is related to stacking. My 5 missing photos all appeared when I "expanded all stacks". I did get one back when I "unstacked" a group that I thought was already unstacked. And I thought I had more than that stacked, so it must have been related to a type of stacked file.

    Total Number Of Images Does Not Equal Number of Master Plus Virtual.

    OK - I love a good mystery too. I am now traveling and have a small catalog with me. It is a new pc, and I mainly use it for processing shots I make when I travel, which I will export to a new catalog when I get home. That will then be merged with my master on a desktop. I also use it for...

    Sharpening JPEGs on export?

    I don't know if "needed " is the right word. I would say it is highly recommended. I follow the 3 step sharpening method: capture, creative, and lastly output. There are lots of descriptions out there; this one is pretty decent...

    Lightroom classic keeps freezing

    Brian, everything you mention (except photos) is contained in the catalog. The catalog knows where the photos are. It is always good practice to back up the catalog, so be sure to do that. I also back up all my catalogs to an external drive. Then when you reinstall LRC, open up the catalog -...
