    Mobile device needed for presentations

    Its a 10yr old Macbook. Have not used it in a year. I just tried to plug it in and the charger light did not come on. Perhaps the battery needs replacing. Anyway I think its inadequate. I am preparing for portfolio reviews at this years Fotofest. Most artists still present with prints but...

    Mobile device needed for presentations

    I need a mobile solution for presenting my photos in a portfolio review. Thats my basic need. I need an accurate display so the photos look wonderful. It would be nice to be able to use Lightroom on the device as well. I am accustomed to my desktop Lightroom and iMac so I don't want a huge...

    Alternative Use of Star Ratings

    I wanted to share my personal use of Star Ratings as it might be useful for others. After consideration of other uses for the ratings I determined that I only really need 2 different ratings and I decided on 2 stars and 3 stars. The other stars will be useful to me for temporary tagging but I...

    Upgrade from LR 5.7.1 to LR6.5

    Thanks for the informative replies! It looks like I will need LR 6.5 to process raw files generated by my Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS100. That, or Camera Raw plug-in version 9.5. I am holding off on subscriptions as long as I can so I guess I will convert to DNG for now. Scott

    Upgrade from LR 5.7.1 to LR6.5

    I purchased a new camera and need to upgrade from standalone LR 5.7.1 to LR6.5. Can I do this in one step or is there an intermediate step required? FYI - I am still running Mac OS 10.7.5 so I can continue to use Photoshop CS4. Thanks!

    LR automatically creating dated folders

    Thanks John. I may have accidentally used COPY. I will see what happens next time I import.

    LR automatically creating dated folders

    I normally import by uploading to my hard drive (a folder with a title). Then I import to LR. After importing to LR there are 2 copies per image on my hard drive. One in the titled folder and another in a dated folder. I am checking ADD when I import.

    LR automatically creating dated folders

    I recently bought a Nikon D750 and now LR 5.7.1 is creating duplicate copies in dated folders. How can I change this ? (FYI - I am running Lion on my Mac so I can continue using Photoshop CS4)

    Renaming files in Lightroom

    I have been renaming the files after importing. The process is easy. Johan your advise is good. I will never rename files outside of lightroom or modify the file's location outside of lightroom.

    Renaming files in Lightroom

    Thanks for your replies! I will be renaming these files with sequential numbers. I tried doing an import to test it out and LR gave the photoshop "sidecar" file a filename with a different sequential number. LR did the same thing when I renamed the files after they were already imported. I may...

    Renaming files in Lightroom

    I am getting ready to import some files ready into Lightroom and I want to rename the files on import. Most of these are Raw files (NEF). I have previously edited some of these in Photoshop and saved them as .psd files. I want Lightroom to rename a given "pair" of files (1 Raw and 1 Photoshop)...

    Copy Mac Finder paths to keyword hierarchy?

    Yeah, dragging the buried keyword hierarchy is tricky. After fumbling with it a bit I noticed that when you drag the Child keywords they would not insert easily. You have to hold them over a dividing line were between 2 top-level parent keywords. Then a blue horizontal line will glow between the...
