  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Very instructive, thanks Fergusen! I'll read it again at a later time to absorb more of that densely packed information :)

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Huh, interesting. I thought they'd save a bit more., maybe 25%.. Wow! didn't know TIFFS were THAT large relative to DNG! Thanks for the info.

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    LRList001 1st paragraph: Yep. Got that, after thinking about it for a moment :) It's also called market competition ;) 2nd: TIFF - I'm familiar with it insofar as all of my heritage photo scans are in high resolution TIFFS, and you're right, it does serve the same "non-lossy" purposes. They...

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Thanks Fergusen, The most interesting paragraph here regarding something I didn't know, is: Metadata is widely supported, e.g. keywords. Develop settings are widely NOT supported; a few will support things like crops/straighten, maybe things like exposure, but none that I know do anywhere near...

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Hi Fergusen, Fair enough. I probably could have expressed the question better :) Here's my problem as two parts: I recently attempted to upgrade my Mac and through ignorance almost lost my catalog. I have since reverted back and have my catalog again, but it made me more afraid of losing...

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Operating System: Mac OSX Yosemite Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Lightroom 5 I'm indecisive at this point about what to do regarding the push to subscription services. That got me thinking of the relative non-transferability of LRs xmp files, especially if they get...

    Library module What are the top-level words in your hierarchical keywor set?

    I currently have the following: _ANIMALS animal _FAMILY _FOOD _METADATA _PEOPLE people _PLACES _PLANTS I know there is a good reason for the duplicate list some of the keywords, but I haven't worked on my photos in a bit and forgot! The too level Metadata keyword is used for my workflow...

    Questions about LR for Android..

    Thanks Jim. I did some reading and watched what videos were out there (mostly from fall 2017 so nothing really recent about all these programs), and I was surprised and...disappointed.. that there was no synching. Seems to totally defeat the purpose of using a mobile app for me at least, since...

    Questions about LR for Android..

    Mobile Operating System: Android Desktop Operating System: macbook pro Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): 5 classic I have not read much about the LR app - I have been too busy rebelling against the idea of a subscription- but I suddenly have discovered a few reasons which are...

    Krogh's Book on LR Organizing Worth it?

    This is a GREAT first step to figuring out the BEST keywording system for YOU. Definitely take a look at my articles. It sounds like you too struggle with getting the photos themselves keyworded, and that's critical (at least for me) to make the most out of LR's organizing features. Feel free...

    Krogh's Book on LR Organizing Worth it?

    If you are interested in one perspective regarding personal heritage collections - digital and paper - and how to integrate, I wrote a series on it using LR. Feel free to read up on them here: Managing Legacy Photos with Lightroom

    Krogh's Book on LR Organizing Worth it?

    Lambys!!! NIICE! :) I'll get back to you on my own keyword scheme after tonight - I don't have laptop at work with me. Keep in mind that opinions are many and sometimes intense, so take them all with a grain of salt, and yes- knowing how your situation compares with others makes a big...
