    Color Match between Lightroom mobile and Classic

    Yes, there's no way for a user to profile iOS or Android devices in a way that the mobile OS will use. But that doesn't mean they aren't calibrated. Those mobile devices are calibrated at the factory; the questions are how well, and to what standard? iOS devices are factory calibrated and iOS...

    Path to getting a print from a photo on the mobile app

    Thanks, glad you liked it. There are questions like this one where writing out the steps for the answer would be long and confusing to follow, so it's more reader-friendly to demonstrate it. I like to embed something small that doesn't have to be uploaded to YouTube first. Screen capture videos...

    Soft proofing and external editors

    I do it in both because it’s easy in Lightroom Classic; if the edit passes the soft proof there, kick it over to Photoshop where after more edits, the soft proof will be checked again. In Photoshop, what saves a lot of time is using View > Proof Setup > Custom to save a soft proof preset that...

    Soft proofing and external editors

    A soft proof is valid only for the exact printing conditions you soft-proofed it for, so in theory you should not have to soft-proof it again in Photoshop if you have set up Photoshop printing with every printing option set exactly the same way as Lightroom Classic, in both the Photoshop print...

    Path to getting a print from a photo on the mobile app

    All a print service provider needs is an uploaded image in JPEG or TIFF usually, so to work with most of them, you would use the same Share feature, on both iOS and macOS, to export in whatever format and options they need. Then upload to the print service provider using a web browser or app...

    Path to getting a print from a photo on the mobile app

    What kind of printer do you have? For iOS, it can be difficult to print on an older printer. Sometimes you have to use a separate app made by the printer manufacturer (if they made one), open the image, and print. And of course it isn’t common to print from a phone to a printer through a cable...

    new updates october 202

    Not necessarily just that. Many companies are declaring shorter supply cycles for multiple reasons. The depth of legacy support is one already mentioned. The more years to support, the more the total surface area of possible application + OS + hardware combinations to verify against so that you...

    Export Show ICC Profile from HP

    I might have another angle to this regarding Linotype, the company that made Linotronic Adobe PostScript imagesetters. I did a little more Googling based on "Linotype" and also "Linotype-Hell". Because in 1990 Linotype merged with Hell Graphics AG of Germany, which pioneered color scanners. All...

    New zoom in Lightroom 10

    Hardly. Many of us have taken advantage of Scrubby Zoom and Box Zoom in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign on the desktop for many years, to instantly get to any zoom level and position. To us, Lightroom Classic is quite late to the party, but we’re glad it finally showed up and gave us more...

    Lightroom Classic (resolution on 5k iMac)

    If it was 2560 x 1400 with pixel doubling, the detail would be artificial. Technically it's the opposite. The OS runs the display at full panel resolution, the UI and content are rendered to the scale factor of the display (e.g. 2x). If that is more than the pixel dimensions that you selected as...

    I think I have four instances of Photoshop -- what next?

    Since this morning brings a huge pile of major Adobe upgrades, and I have Auto-Update turned off, I can confirm that Remove Older Versions is also available when updating one application manually. So if you update to Photoshop 2021 today and you want to remove all of the older ones, tick that box.

    I think I have four instances of Photoshop -- what next?

    If the Creative Cloud Desktop app is set to Auto-Update, and Remove Older Versions is disabled, you could end up with multiple older versions over time. I have Auto-Update off but I forget exactly how it works that way. I think when it offers you a new major version and manually choose to...

    Calibration

    When Mac displays went Retina, that only changed two things: Higher pixel density, and later, a larger P3 color gamut. I think they're calibrated at the factory, but to a generic standard that might not be exactly what you need. If you have a good profiler like a ColorMunki it's still better to...

    Print size not as specified in Lightroom on Epson P-800

    Yes, and that includes not choosing any Borderless paper sizes in Page Setup, because Borderless must scale the image to expand it past the paper edge. If the dimensions are correct in software (Lightroom, Photoshop, etc.), they are sending precise dimension information to the printer. Any...

    Show only raw files?

    What isn’t obvious about the Metadata columns is that there are two menus at the top corners. Click the menu on the left to pick which metadata to filter on in that column, and click the menu on the right to add or remove columns of other metadata to filter on.

    Migrating from Lightroom to Lightroom Classic: Any advantage to Lightroom?

    I use Classic myself, but while Lightroom cloud does not have strict feature parity with Classic, it has advanced so much that it does now cover most of what most people need. Does she use images personally or for business in a way where it makes a material difference to have all images...

    A Curious Question...

    Mine’s set to once a day. But if I opened the catalog just to look at or export a few things and didn’t make any meaningful edits, I’ll often tell it to skip this backup. Since accumulated backups can take up a lot of space, every once in a while I’ll open the Lightroom backups folder and clear...

    Lr Catalog Maintenance/Cleansing

    Another aspect is that dumping cache and backup catalogs does not in any way “cleanse” the catalog file itself, because those files are all separate from and outside the catalog. The only way to “cleanse” the catalog is to, in Lightroom Classic, choose File > Optimize Catalog. That really does...

    Your settings for a Wacom Intuos Pro for Lightroom

    It can be difficult to hit small or thin targets precisely with the stylus, in any application. With a mouse or trackpad, the pointer is absolutely still if your hand is at rest, so it’s easier to make tiny adjustments with little nudges. In contrast, we can’t ever release the stylus, it needs...

    Monitor brightness & Color profile

    And if part of the question is how low to set it, the answer to that is that the idea is to get a good match under the lighting conditions of your final output. It is not a single number for everyone, even if everyone was using the same display. 90–120 cdm2 is usually appropriate for print, but...

    Dehaze slider missing with DNG file(s)

    I agree with that observation. In fact when I open an old raw image, sometimes I don’t like how I edited it with Camera Raw in 2006 or whenever because I wasn’t as good at it back then, or couldn’t fix certain problems with the old toolset, and I will want to start over with current tools. So I...

    Dehaze slider missing with DNG file(s)

    It should be fixable. It’s probably because Dehaze is only supported on recent Process Versions (version of the process used to develop the raw data), so if the files are many years old they were probably still on whatever Process Version was the latest at the time. The Process Version of a raw...

    Clearing up disk space. Tips and guidance is needed

    Photocitizen showed a great way to use the metadata filters for that. You can save that as a filter preset too, so that you don’t have to remember how to set it up each time. Another way to do the same thing is to create a Smart Collection based on criterion that a photo has no edits. This will...

    Clearing up disk space. Tips and guidance is needed

    Lightroom Classic doesn't offer any ability to undo deleted files beyond what your normal operating system and backup regimen would offer you for any application. But…Lightroom Classic does offer one great tool for efficiently deleting lots of old files, and it is a tool that most applications...

    Strange entries in import options.....

    I believe those are Time Machine Local Snapshots produced by macOS. They are almost always around, but they’re not supposed to be visible in properly coded Open/Save/Import dialog boxes, but for whatever reason they show up in Lightroom Classic Import sometimes. The bottom line is that you...
