    Are you thinking of switching to the Creative Cloud?

    I switched to the $10/month photography program yesterday. I retired, and it's easier to budget $10/month than come up with the upgrade price. The installation went very smoothly. It will have my Photoshop CS6 intact, so I'm now using it as my secondary editor if needed. I took the time to...

    What should the print resolution really be set to?

    I have been using Lightroom since version 2. I have followed several different forums hoping to learn the ins and outs of the program, and feel that I have a pretty good grasp of how it works. However, I got involved in a discussion about print resolution in another forum, and I'm still not sure...

    Question about 1:1 previews

    Admittedly, I'm confused. But I have read in a number of places that 1:1 previews have no impact on the develop module. And yet there are a number of tutorials that indicate that you should use them to speed up your workflow because they DO impact the develop module. So, which is it? I'd...

    Reinstalling Lightroom 4

    First of all, let me clarify that Lightroom 5 is running just fine on my two installations. As I read some of the Adobe forum comments I'm almost convinced that I'm the only one who has no problems with the new version. However, on my Home Computer something got messed up with my Lightroom 4...

    I want to change my profile

    Sorry to have to ask such a dumb question, and I'm not sure which forum I should use to ask it. So I chose this one. I wanted to update my computer specs in my profile. When I go to my profile, I can see what I put in initially, and there's a button/tab to allow me to edit my profile. But I...

    Moved to a new computer. OH NO!

    I finally upgraded/replaced my 32-bit Windows computer with a 64-bit computer and 8 GB RAM. I don't know how many horror stories I have read about moving Lightroom catalogs and images to a new computer. So my new one sat on the table for a week while I went over the transfer process in my head...

    Question about previews sizes

    I need some clarification about preview sizes. I have been creating 1:1 previews routinely in Lightroom. I understand the difference in quality. But, I'm still using a 32 bit computer and not quite ready to upgrade yet. I know, there's a big difference. And I experience that difference...

    Upgrading Photoshop question

    I am currently using Lightroom 4.2 RC with Photoshop CS5. If I decide to install CS6 will it be necessary for me to uninstall/reinstall Lightroom in order for it to set CS6 as my default editor? OK, I found Beat's answer in the Tips section. Tried the link, but the page isn't available. I...

    Question about DNG

    I haven't convinced myself that DNG is a viable conversion choice for my Nikon D90 NEF files. But this is not intended to be a debate on that issue. PLEASE! Don't make it that, because my mind is made up and until something changes my workflow will remain the same. But I have a question...

    Looking for my preferences file

    I'm starting to change my attitude about Lightroom 4. Yes, I'm using 4.1 RC2. It really slowed down to a crawl on a small shoot for a neighbor family yesterday. I had read somewhere that someone improved performance by deleting their preferences file. I went to the tips and tricks thread on this...

    Lightroom 4 performance on 32-bit computer

    I have been reading in the Adobe forums about the dreadful performance of Lightroom 4. Unfortunately, I'm limping along with a Windows 7 32-bit 4 GB RAM dual core computer. And I'm not planning on upgrading in the near future. Just wondering if anyone here is using a similar computer with...
