    A Couple of Random Questions...

    Robert, Thanks. It seems lots of folks are experiencing the same the same thing, and I've tried most everything but uninstalling and reinstalling the apps. It's not that bog of a deal, just a bit annoying. Perhaps one day when I'm bored...

    A Couple of Random Questions...

    An update: My second question has been answered and resolved. I was able to get through to B&H on chat this morning, and the LowePro bag shipped overnight. The B&H rep explained there was a n 'outage' of some sort which disrupted portions of their in-house system for processing web orders...

    A Couple of Random Questions...

    Hello all - First question: for Instagram users - are you seeing your own posts? I post an image to Instagram, it shows when the post is made, and it shows in my feed, but it doesn't show on the platform's front page. However, it is visible to other users on the platform, as posts receive...

    I also use Time Machine... And I upload my finished work to the cloud, and back-up across multiple hard drives. Trust issues, as I said...

    A Curious Question...

    Thanks everyone - I've generally been follow what Conrad described, so maybe I'll stick with that. It was actually when I noticed my weekly malware/virus scan was scanning catalog back-ups from 2018 that I even thought about this. I think I'll go in and clear out the backups on an annual...

    A Curious Question...

    ...to which I saw nothing posted in a forum search... How often do you backup your LrC catalog when exiting the software? Daily? Weekly? Monthly? Every time you close LR? As I said, only a curiosity. And in case you;re wondering, I've been doing a daily backup, but am thinking of shifting to...

    Macbook Pro Users...Anyone Had This Issue??

    Thanks - the updates are current - and the issue I was having was only with Micro SD card adapters...and particularly, SanDisk adapters. Lexar adapters and standard SD cards, (SanDisk, Lexar), read just fine. It seems that, remarkably enough, all of my SanDisk adapters failed nearly...

    Cloud Backup/Storage Services - What do You Use?

    Don't know...I really don't notice boats coming and going as it's a daily thing...and, I work in the marine industry (my day job) and a boat is a boat is a boat...so, unless it's one I'm involved with (I investigate marine accidents; so, being pad to deal with in some capacity) I really don't...

    Macbook Pro Users...Anyone Had This Issue??

    UPDATE: New external card reader, and all is working fine. The reader is a SanDisk unit, that will read CF (of which I have none), SD and Micro SD up to current generations of cards. And, it will read Micro SD cards without needing an adapter. It's very curious that it was only the SanDisk...

    Macbook Pro Users...Anyone Had This Issue??

    I'm going to pick up an external card reader this afternoon. I was able to pull the images and videos I shot yesterday by using a Lexar card reader adapter - the Micro SD Cards from the camera are Sandisk - but to deepen the mystery, the Sandisk adapters are working normally in my wife's...

    Macbook Pro Users...Anyone Had This Issue??

    Thanks for the quick reply - I thought of that; however, none of these cards/reader adapters are new. The Micro SD cards are used in my GoPro cameras and my drone. I've been using them since 2017 or so with zero issues. The cards are working fine in camera, so the issue seems to be with the...

    Macbook Pro Users...Anyone Had This Issue??

    My MacBook Pro 15" SD card reader will read standard SD cards from my cameras (FujiFilm X100F, Canon 6D Mark II, Canon G7X Mark II, etc.) with no issues, but is now having a lot of difficulty with Micro SD Cards. I tried five different SD Card adapters before the micro SD card mounted and read...

    Website Recommendations?

    I built mine with a Squarespace template - easy to use, very intuitive, drag and drop builder; moderately customizeable with plenty of options for E-commerce, etc., and 'client access only' pages are easy to set up with password protection. Hosting, etc., affordable. Feel free to take a look; I...

    Cloud Backup/Storage Services - What do You Use?

    This is pretty much what I've set up...with the exception of a fire/water proof box...storage space is at a premium, but finding something suitable is doable. Us sailors are 'creatively resourceful,' if little else. At the moment, the drives are stored in a heavy duty dry-bag in a cabin locker...

    Cloud Backup/Storage Services - What do You Use?

    Thanks everyone - Reading through the responses, it became clear I should have explained my situation a bit more...my wife and I are cruising sailors, and our 34' sailboat is, (and has been, for the last 6 years), our home. We are normally on the move on a regular basis, though the COVID...

    Cloud Backup/Storage Services - What do You Use?

    I'm curious which services people are using for their cloud backup and storage...and what are the services used for? I've been using Amazon (as a Prime member, it's free and unlimited) but Amazon is known for sudden and inexplicable policy changes, so...what else is there? And, what do you guys...

    Problem with PS CC 2020 Healing Brush Tool...

    Having finished yesterday's projects, I haven't had a chance to get back into PS yet to fiddle with settings, etc. However, I see that Adobe released an update for PS overnight which was said to include 'bug-fixes,' so (hopefully) this issue is one which was addressed.

    Problem with PS CC 2020 Healing Brush Tool...

    The 'Legacy Compositing' box is unchecked. I'll look at the other settings. Thanks!

    Problem with PS CC 2020 Healing Brush Tool...

    After the recent upgrades, the healing brush in PS is leaving black circles when applied to a selected area of an image. Tool reset isn't working, nor are changes to settings, etc. The only 'fix' I've found is to constantly close PS, then reopen it. Anyone else seeing this? Or, have a fix??

    Possible to change slider default settings??

    Nor can I...it's so odd that it is only the Exposure slider that does this.

    Possible to change slider default settings??

    Ha! Well, thanks. I have to admit the uneven numbers bug me as well, but it's so much more annoying when I want a specific value and it simply won't 'stick.' Ah well...thanks for the reply.
