    Yet another file sharing question

    Yes, I did that as well as had him share his desktop wit me giving guidance. We are a couple of time zones apart, so this does add a challenge to working in real time. Ideally, I would want to share the catalog with him so he can see the history and then try to learn from it, build on it or...

    Yet another file sharing question

    Thank you. These are both good suggestions for consideration. I know that he is excited to learn more about post processing, and I want to help, so I am going to see what might work for him. Thanks, --Ken

    Yet another file sharing question

    My nephew has continued to take an interest in photography and is now learning about post processing.:thumbsup: He has a subscription to LR Classic and while we have talked on occasion and done a few video sessions where he has watched me or I have coached him, he is occasionally sending raw...

    Develop module Lightroom Summit

    I am not certain, but most of the speakers were quite well known and seem to have taught several classes in LR and related topics over the years from looking at their web sites. Anthony and Dave did a good job of offering a variety of topics each day, so there was almost always something for...

    Develop module Lightroom Summit

    Funny, I had to check as well. But I never received the message that you did (and I even checked my email trash can). All of the messages that I did receive had links to the web site for VIP information, and none had any price information. --Ken

    Develop module Lightroom Summit

    Yes, and I thought they were offering it during the summit at that price if I recall correctly. And I believe that the Saturday email was also at that price. Perhaps I did not see any language about an increase, but since it seemed to be holding during the conference, I thought it would hold...

    Develop module Lightroom Summit

    I registered and then perused each day's offerings the next day and found most to be useful, and some to be really helpful at teaching me things that I did not know and was happy to learn. I did not initially sign up for the VIP pass and mulled its purchase during the conference. On Sunday I...

    Setting quality and dpi when doing a custom export

    Unless you are wanting to limit the resolution of an image to limit the size of a quality print, you should export the image with full resolution as a jpeg file in sRGB color space. The exception to this would be if the person you are sending this file to specifically asked for it to be saved...

    Setting quality and dpi when doing a custom export

    PPI settings are just an instruction set and have no influence on the photo you are exporting. All is does is tell aware applications, of which there are not a lot, that if they are going to print the image, print it at 240PPI. Set your dimensions and quality and you are good to go. --Ken

    Sharper unprocessed image

    Unfortunately, to "see" a raw images requires a bit of interpretation by the software manufacturer, so what you would be seeing is what Adobe believes is the rendering they think you should see. The embedded jpeg is used by almost everybody because it is there, but it is also subject to what...

    Sharper unprocessed image

    I am not sure that is a fair comparison. LR has left the raw image in an editable state so you can determine how much you want the image sharpened. The embedded preview is kept/used for your convenience. --Ken

    Archiving to Lossy DNG vs HQ JPG

    I wish I could take credit for it, but I recall hearing it from a post many years ago. --Ken

    Lightroom Classic folder structure

    Try your new settings and see what happens. If you still have issues, note the sequence and settings as that should help troubleshoot. Good luck, --Ken

    Lightroom Classic folder structure

    Start at the top of the Import dialog window. Here you will chose Copy as DNG/Copy/Move/Add. The choice will impact what appears in the right hand panel where you set up how you want your files renamed and where they are to be located. I suggest selecting each one at the top and seeing how...

    Archiving to Lossy DNG vs HQ JPG

    Welcome to the forum. This question come up often and the concerns that many will raise, as did Paul above, is that what you are doing is akin to printing an image and then throwing away the negative. Are you planning on stopping your LR subscription soon? Then I could see printing out copies...

    Replacate image look

    Welcome to the forum. Do you have any information on this image? Metadata? What is it about the shot that you are trying to replicate? I suspect that what you are seeing has less to do with LR and more to do with how the shot was set up and lit. LR is not really the best program for just...

    Question about sharing an album publicly

    How about Flickr? If you are manually tagging photos, Flickr will share the tags with your audience. --Ken

    any way to identify Lightroom sessions at Adobe Summit?

    any way to identify Lightroom sessions at Adobe Summit?

    This is the page that I get when I looked for a schedule of the sessions: LVS Schedule . Let me know if it works for you. --Ken

    Lightroom creating new folders on new Mac

    That's actually your Preferences dialog. Jim was referring to the portion of the Import dialog, which if the window that you use when you are importing/adding/moving images in LR - the Destination panel. This will show how the files are being handled in the import process. --Ken

    Lightroom cannot find my external drive

    I suspect that your new internal drive has assigned a different letter to the external drive. Look at the drive letter that LR is searching for and look at the drive letter that the new install on your new internal drive has given your old external drive. If they are different, then you have...

    What should I consider for a new computer

    Very True. I am still cranking along on a PC with integrated graphics, so a GPU tends to slip my mind. I should know better as I have taken an interest in video, and a GPU is a must for doing any significant work. Thanks, --Ken

    What should I consider for a new computer

    Welcome to the forum. The three that are usually mentioned are CPU, RAM and disk speed, as you have called out above. For RAM, you probably want 32-64GB. You could probably do with 16-24GB, but 32GB should probably serve you well. You want your main disc to be fast, and NVMe drives are...

    Import LR5 develop work stripped during import from external drive

    No. The newly created catalog will be identical to the old LR5 catalog with all of its edits, adjustments and history. The ones that you "added" to a Classic catalog, that I am assuming you created from scratch, will be in a separate catalog from the converted one and it (the one created from...
