    suddenly my photo's in Lr have become smaller

    For what it is worth, LR 6.14, W10, mid-resolution monitor, both fit and fill expand an absurdly small image to fit/fill the image space (heavily pixelated). I don't have a 4K to experiment with. Maybe delete the preferences?

    Good, I am glad it is fixed and thank you for your kind words too.

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    When I exit LR (6.14) I check and optimize the catalogue and back it up. The total time is a minute or two. Of that time, the initial checking takes a good proportion of the time and the progress bar barely moves, LR then goes to optimise various other aspects and right at the end of the...

    Computer crashing during export

    Do you have a cooler that came with the CPU (an air cooler)? Those are less expensive than water coolers usually? 70 degrees at idle is far, far too high. Try another cooler, something is very wrong. You might have convection helping without a working pump. The CPU will auto throttle back...

    Computer crashing during export

    Call me too cautious if you like, but I wouldn't leap in and re-seat the cpu's thermal compound until I had tried removing dust and checking that the whole cooling system is looking to be performing correctly. For what its worth, this (W10) machine is currently mostly idling right now, the CPU...

    Slow LR 6.14 Catalog Backup Problem

    Some data. I am running LR 6.14 under Windows 10 latest, 64 bit. I have some 115k images in the LR catalogue. The catalogue is 1.6GB The backup (which as a compressed file crudely indicates how much 'unique' data is actually in there) is 170MB. Exiting LR, I always prompt for a full...

    Error message "can not post to internal server" Gmail acct is validated.

    At a guess, something outside LR6 has changed and as LR6 has not been maintained for years, it isn't going to work. If you need to use external to LR functionality (ie, when LR uses interfaces to other products like email), then you are likely going to need to switch to a current version of LR...

    Nikon Z6ii and Z7ii white balance consistency issue

    Could you copy the WB setting from one image and paste it into the others? This would force them to same (LR) WB temperature. However, there does seem to be a bug in LR if it doesn't treat the 6 and 7 raw files in the same way, given the camera is in manual WB temperature mode, so it is unclear...

    file not found in develop module but not the usual issue

    Delete or rename the preferences file and see if that fixes it. LR will create a new (default) preferences file.

    file not found in develop module but not the usual issue

    I presume the files are where they are supposed to be. That being the case, they are possibly corrupt in some way. HTHs

    New Mac: SSD/external drive

    At the moment (May 2021), in the UK, an ultra-fast M.2 2TB SSD runs around £400 (inc VAT) as a bare device.

    Lightroom 6.14 - download source?

    Could be an out of date certificate perhaps?

    Sharper unprocessed image

    You probably don't mean that. If you would like to see the unprocessed raw image (or something close to it), a free raw processor called rawtherapee can do it. You will get a green biased image and it will look a mess. A raw file goes through many stages of processing before something like a...

    Edit in PS command causes misalignment in PS

    This sounds like it could be a graphics card problem, are the drivers fully up-to-date?

    "What's New" page on LRQ seems to miss a few things ...

    According to the research papers I have tracked to date, there is no evidence (yet) that the eventual immune response is better in the younger than in the older, but there is beginning to be evidence(?) (it is mostly informed speculation) that some younger respond faster, ie reach the immunity...

    "What's New" page on LRQ seems to miss a few things ...

    As of now (Fri 19 Mar 21), the UK is completing its first priority groups (1-9), that is all over 50s, plus vulnerable of all ages over 18. A month long delay in 10m doses of Oxford (aka Astra/Zenica) from India has put a one month delay in starting on 45-49s. Instead the priority is...

    Transitioning from LR 1-6 to Adobe Photography Subscription

    Possibly, once you have migrated and made changes to the LR10 catalogue, you can't convert it back to LR6. So, should you decide later you no longer want LR10 and if you are able to keep LR6 running (which is increasingly difficult for Mac users and is slowly losing functionality for Windows...

    New Laptop coming at $2300 expense due to programming issue with LR

    I'm reading this and the laptop has been updated so many times, it isn't really a OEM laptop at all. If it turns out that all those modifications have taken it out of the manufacturer's assumptions and design decisions about how it will be used, I'm no longer reading about a problem with either...

    Display Images at Actual Size

    You will have to do some maths. If you take a picture of a ruler, and place it on the screen, you will be able to work out the adjustments needed to get an actual 1:1 ratio, as displayed. By rotating the image you will also be able to see if your monitor displays the exact same pitch both...

    Does anyone have experience with Rawsie?

    In windows there is the option to compress the whole drive to save space (see properties). As, by and large, the speed of a disk is slower than the speed of the cpu in compressing and decompressing, this can, in some situations, make things go faster. However, if you are at or below 10%...

    Display Images at Actual Size

    I would be strongly minded to photograph a ruler and use the scaling on that to answer your question.

    12-16TB external storage: (1) how fast is enough? (2) move from NAS to DAS. (3) bit rot issues?

    My understanding is that Synology support a scheduled task that scans the whole drive periodically. What it does if it finds an error it can't fix, I don't know.

    12-16TB external storage: (1) how fast is enough? (2) move from NAS to DAS. (3) bit rot issues?

    My understanding is that (some?) Synology NAS units do have automatic bitrot detection and recovery. See eg:

    Graphics cards in the time of Lightroom 10 (and going forward)?

    Looking at this website and assuming GPU performance is the key driver: then the RTX 3070 seems to be sitting on the top of the price/performance chart. It is listed at around GBP £550, though as already mentioned, no stock, no dates for...
