    People have historically been so helpful here... Did I not ask the right question, or put this in the right forum?

    Lightroom screen flicker with external hard drive

    Update - I had LR on and the external connected while writing the above post. It seemed fine, but then I went to pinterest online, the drive did a normal "whirring" thing, and the screen flicker began again, and got really baad, until I closed out LR. Now, external connected - no flickr, even...

    Lightroom screen flicker with external hard drive

    Hi all, I hope you all have survived 2020 with minimal health issues, and are enjoying this holiday season. I just recently opened Lightroom after a long hiatus. Initially LR didn't see where the catalog was, but I was able to restore the connection and it found the photos on my original...

    List of major changes to LR/LR Classic since LR 5.x

    Hi Louis.. I've just conquered my upgrade nightmare...and succeeded!! So, now that you've mentioned it, maybe I'll give his digital book another try :)

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    Alleluia! Finally did it! upgraded OS, then subscribed and installed LR Classic. Recognized photos my keywords appear intact... I'm a happy camper after limping around on Yosemite and LR 5 for too many years!

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    I do.. But I had one last time, and though grateful, it was still a huge mess.

    List of major changes to LR/LR Classic since LR 5.x

    Hi Louie.. Thx for replying. I do have Peter's book, though I admit the first I one, in paperback I read all through, but struggled to keep moving fwd with his digital. True though. My fave author regarding topic of DAM. Haven't been to the related website in a while but articles there were helpful.

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    All backups are done... But I procrastinated all day on the os upgrade {sigh}., maybe I'll get the courage tomorrow...

    Ideal / Acceptable specs on Macbook Pro running LR Classic 9?

    Wow.. that's a very thorough and helpful review/opinion! Thanks for taking the time to post that much detail. I'm thinking it can't hurt to try the OS upgrade and the upgrade to LR9 Classic with my current unit, so I think I'm going to try that and see how things go. I tend to think to do one...

    Ideal / Acceptable specs on Macbook Pro running LR Classic 9?

    So, I need to upgrade my OS on my late 2013 model Macbook Pro, and I'm going to upgrade from LR5 perpetual to LR Classic 9. I have 135K original photos (just under 4 TB space of photos, and a bit under 400Gb hard drive space for everything else). I do have the money to upgrade to the newest...

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    Not a bad idea Ken - Seems that by doing desktop first, it might be easier to uninstall LR if needed.

    List of major changes to LR/LR Classic since LR 5.x

    Jim - It was probably the title field I was thinking about.. and that's very good news for me! Thanks.

    List of major changes to LR/LR Classic since LR 5.x

    Hi Califdan.. thanks for the summary. Yeah..it's been a while since I delved into LR since I haven't upgraded in so long, but I really hoped some field features (like filtering on "is blank" and is not blank on captions) would have been implemented.

    List of major changes to LR/LR Classic since LR 5.x

    Not much detail needed here.. except that I'm primarily interested in whether they have made any significant improvements to the organizing side of LR- collections, search fields and such.

    Conditions for Title Field vs. Conditions for Caption Field, etc.

    Hiya John! Good to "see" you again :) Agreed that avoiding confusion is of utmost importance :), with LR at the center of the universe of confusion LOL! I just checked my email and I did find a registration code, but it was from 2015.. wonder if that would still work? Frankly, your add-on was...

    Conditions for Title Field vs. Conditions for Caption Field, etc.

    Reviving this old thread.. for a couple reasons.. and just for fun :) To answer @johnbeardy regarding database programmers vs. graphics specialists - I totally agree with that theory, especially since I myself am loyal to LR because, for all it's database shortcomings, it's still the best...

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    Ken-- Haha!! I started the backup of my photo collection last night at around 10:40. As of 7:30 this morning I was at abt. 120k/ 135K photos!! whew!! Keeping fingers crossed our cleaners don't mess with those wires!!! So when I get home I'll have a full time machine backup (which is running...

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    Ken- thanks. I'm a mac user so I don't think the particular vids you used will help, though the intention is appreciated. I do run time machine, and it did save my butt back in 2017. My photos reside on the same drive that I currently use for time machine, and I've done backups from there to 2...

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    Thanks Ken. Yeah.. I'm nervous about this transition, because it will be big changes in both realms - Mac OS (confirmed I currently am on Yosemite) and with LR (would be upgrading from LR 5.x..Yikes!). I attempted an upgrade some 4 years ago and it went so traumatically badly (user error- didn't...

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    Thanks to both of you for the info! I didn't read the "left hand" carefully enough since "Photoshop" turned me right off (no interest in that). Now I see what to look for. Thanks! Dawn

    Upgrading LR Classic- how?

    Hi...I'm being forced to upgrade my Mac OS (my version, from 2015? forget the name, I think it was prior to Yosemite!) to a more recent OS, which will also force me to upgrade to LR CC. I just went to the Adobe.com site, and it's only giving me ONE choice of software (just LR). I don't want to...

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Very instructive, thanks Fergusen! I'll read it again at a later time to absorb more of that densely packed information :)

    Library module Revisiting DNG Pros and Cons

    Huh, interesting. I thought they'd save a bit more., maybe 25%.. Wow! didn't know TIFFS were THAT large relative to DNG! Thanks for the info.
