    Develop module Very slow performance on TIFF save

    It's tiff- specific, afaik. You can compress 8-bit-tiffs. But the compression of 16-bit tiffs is not defined in the tiff-specifications. It's not a Lightroom-problem, other software have this problem, too. The scanner-software Vuescan, vor instance. If you compress a 16-bit tiff, each software...

    Iconoclastic Scanning Service

    My personal experience with faded slides or negatives: VueScan does an excellent job on them. Just klick a button in VueScan and you get pictures wihth nearly (nearly!) the original colors. Scans were done with a Nikon Coolscan V ED. Klaas

    83MB size photos in LTR6.14?

    A lot of my files in LR are scanned TIFFs from slides, each with 112 to 115 MByte. No problem. The only limit is the speed of my WLAN, since I have my pictures on a NAS, while the catalogue is on the PC. Klaas

    Flatbed Scanner Questions

    Sorry, but jou did a big mistake with installing working scanning software. Now you have to spend a lot of time (months or even years) with scanning :) I'm experiencend now, believe me :) But Corona and a closed nation are most helpfully for saving spare time for scanning :) The last two years...

    Flatbed Scanner Questions

    A question about your Nikon 5000 scanner: Vuescan should work with your scanner, even with the multi-slide-feeder. At least this is mentioned at the description at the Vuescan scanner list, see the Nikon Coolscan page. If not, contact them, Mr. Hamrick is most supportive, as I found out. Klaas

    Flatbed Scanner Questions

    I used Nikon Scan 4.0.3, but it didn't work either, so I de-installed it. Then I tryed the free version of Vuescan and this software works fine with my Nikon scanner. But then I installed Nikon Scan again and it suddenly works fine. Via the internet I learned, that Vuescan installed a driver for...

    Flatbed Scanner Questions

    Two years ago I started scanning slides, negatives and prints and I faced the same problems as discussed here. I bought a slide scanner, a used Nikon Coolscan V ED. A flatbed scanner was already available. And now - what scan software for both scanners? I tested Silverfast and Nikon Scan for...

    Commercial Scanning of Negatives

    The last year I scanned a lot of slides and negatives of the 35mm size with my Nikon scanner, with 4000 dpi each. I started with JPEG, but then I changed to TIFF, since only with TIFF a colour depth of 16 bit is available. TIFF gives you far better colours, especially, when you have colours of...

    Image Quality, iPhone 11: DNG vs JPG vs HEIC

    On my iPhone XR I changed from HEIC to JPEG, since JPEG is a more common format. And my old LR-Version doesn't support the more modern HEIC. Apple did a good job with their processing software, I think. It's very seldom, that I have to do changes on the phootographs with my LR. Klaas

    From RAW to saved format?

    When you want to see your pictures on TV or with a beamer via a WLAN a HD-JPG (1920x1080) is present within a glance, while a RAW of 20 or more MB or a TIF of 120 MB needs several frustrating seconds to show up. Klaas

    Lightroom CC slows down after heavy usage

    In such cases I usually reorganize my catalogue. An other possibility is the Windows Defender, which meanwhile checks your files. WD needs very often a lot of CPU power and that can be a problem for LR. Klaas

    Roll Call - Those using Lightroom to manage scanned photos

    You should have priorities :-) And naturly no duplicates. The reason: You haven't always Lightroom available, for instance streaming from a NAS (network attached storage device) to a beamer. In that case you only can follow the folder structure. Keyword are set additionally, so that I can find...

    Roll Call - Those using Lightroom to manage scanned photos

    I don't change the file names used by the camera, I can't see any reason for it. For scanned pictures I name them with 001, 002 and so on. I created some general folders like abstract, events, persons, locations and so on. Within these folders are subfolders. For instance within events I use...

    Moving images to an NAS - how do I tell Lightroom?

    Is there a reason for mounting the NAS as a disk? Why don't you use the network name instead of a disk name, for instance \\NAS\home (Set for NAS your real network name)? This network name is always the same. A network name works fine with LR. Klaas

    Best Vuescan settings (split from Scanning step-by-step)

    For cleaning a film I use an old fashioned brush made of goat hair. This material is softer than any plastic brush and it is nearly antistatic, since it doesn't pull new dust to a film. Klaas
