    Free up space on CC - confused !

    I've reached my 20GB limit and for the life of me can't figure out how to reduce it, despite quite a few postings on this forum and others. I mainly use LR Classic (8.4). I download files from my Canon 5D IV directly into LR on my desktop. For some I then create a collection and sync to the CC...

    Profile Corrections - Lens identification, curious behaviour

    I hired a Sigma 150-600 Contemporary for a weekend and in the Develop Module checking 'Enable Profile Corrections' correctly identified the lens. Happy with the hire I purchased a lens of my own. Now checking 'Enable Profile Corrections' tells me LR is 'Unable to locate a matching profile...

    Sharing an Album that doesn’t require SignUp

    Is it possible to share an album from LR Mobile on iPad without the recipient having to sign in ? The link that I create and email firstly asks the recipient to Sign in / Sign up. I thought I’d read that was no longer required. Cheers Pete

    Error importing video files shot from Ronin

    Most of my images are pictures but I do shoot a bit of video on my Canon 5D MKIV. It suits my workflow to import direct from card into LR alongside pictures although I edit in Premiere Pro.

    Fellow book creators may find this helpful/of interest; The last LR update improved the book module and introduced the 'layflat' option for Blurb. I ordered up a book and was enquiring after it seemed to be taking an age to arrive after I'd been told it had shipped. Blub Support tell me that...

    Editing jet fighter pics - engine exhaust

    Took a load of picture of jet fighters with afterburners lit at the weekend. I can see there is heat haze from the engines, and I’ve seen pics (some taken same place/time), where the processing has maximised the visibility. After several hours of fiddling with white point/black...

    Should I stick to 7.1 or upgrade to 7.3.1

    I generally err on the side of caution about upgrading my desktop and for me 7.1 is stable and does all I need. However, the new Profile approach looks really interesting but I held off going 7.3 as there were some issues and LRQ Herself advised awaiting the dot upgrade. Now 7.3.1 is with us...

    Will 7.3 on iPad work with 7.1 on desktop ?

    I’m very cautious about updating my desktop till I’m reasonably sure things are stable. I’m a bit more going ho with my iPad. The new profiles look interesting. Do I need to update the entire ecosystem or will my 7.1 desktop understand profiles applied to photos by 7.3 iPad ? Thanks Pete

    LR Mobile 2.8

    Looks like a really useful update - however . . . The feature I used most was speed flagging (press and hold in picture mode and you could choose what to set as you swiped up/down). Press and hold in 2.8 toggles before/after. I can't find any mention of speed flagging anywhere so I don't...

    Dynamiclinkmediaserver & Canon 5D Mk III

    I'm having real trouble with video files on Canon 5D MkIII. Anytime I load a video file into my library if I so much as cross the mouse over it a process called dynamiclinkmediaserver grabs 80% of the processor for minutes at a time even though I'm doing nothing. Sometime the video files play...

    Developing my pictures - automating some aspects of it

    Apologies - if I've got this wrong and this should be in the workflow section. Despite using LR since V1 there are some aspects I've still not got to grips with, and it's increasingly hampering me. I shoot RAW, and am comfortable with why images out of camera look a bit flat and what to do...
