    A Bit of Color Management Frustration

    Using soft proofing & display calibration, I have been trying to sort out a screen-to-print match issue. Namely, some of my prints had come back from the lab considerably darker than the on-screen image when viewed under D50 lighting. After several test prints based on different display...

    Color Management Question

    I have noticed that when I send images to an online print lab, the prints are darker than the on-screen image. I assumed that the luminance (i.e. brightness) of my display was set too high. Therefore, in an effort to achieve a better screen-to-print match, I have calibrated & profiled my NEC...

    Exporting Soft-Proofed Image

    I recently sent an image to a print lab (ProDPI) for printing as I have many times in the past. This time the actual print came back much darker than the soft-proofed image. The only thing that I might have done differently with this image was failing to uncheck the Soft Proofing checklbox in...

    Issue With Topaz Labs' Mask AI

    As many of you likely know, Mask AI is software that can be used either as a stand-alone app or as a plug-in in Photoshop. My preference is to use it as a stand-alone app. However, after I finish processing an image in Mask AI & save it, the file is not recognizable & cannot be opened. This...

    Removing Collection From Collection Set

    I unexpectedly discovered a collection residing inside of Smart Collections. How can I remove that collection from Smart Collections but still include it in Collections? Drag & drop does not seems to work? Thank you so much.

    A Question on Retouching Along Border of Subject & Background

    As a casual user of Photoshop 2020, I have hit my limit of knowledge & need some experienced advice. I have an image of a bear on which I have replaced the background (using Topaz Mask AI). I likely was not careful enough when I created the mask to delete the background. As a result, there are...

    Issue With Topaz Mask AI

    I recently downloaded a 30-day trial of Mask AI. Although I was quite pleased with its ability to mask & replace the background, whenever I saved the composite image as a TIFF file, it could not be opened in Lightroom, Photoshop, or Mac's Preview. I have a support ticket filed with Topaz Labs...

    I'm Confused! (in-camera crop ratios)

    I shot an image with a full-sensor Canon 6D with a native aspect ratio of 3:2. I have never change that ratio in-camera. With that said, I am confused why the 3:2 aspect ratio of the image in LR is cropped from the "original" or "as shot". Am I missing something obvious? Thank you so much.

    When Photoshop Just Does It Better

    I am a longtime LR user. If I am diligent about image capture, I find that only occasionally do I have to do any editing in PS or a 3rd-party plugin. So as you might expect, my experience with PS is very limited. Recently, I used the clone stamp tool & content aware fill in PS when I wasn't...

    When Photoshop Just Does It Better

    With all of the updates in Lightroom over the years, it is my post-processing editor of choice. Given my style of photography, Lightroom generally does what I need it to do & consequently Photoshop rarely gets used. But after using the Clone Stamp Tool several times, I started to wonder which...

    Wacom Tablet Recommendation

    As a longtime LR & Mac user, I am finally coming around to understanding the benefits of a Wacom tablet versus my trackpad for post-processing. Since I am sure that many of you are veteran Wacom tablet users, I would like to lean on you for a recommendation. Specifically, what features & size of...

    Copying Lightroom Classic to Another Computer

    This is a remedial question. But I want to make sure that I am not overlooking something. I plan to use a new MacBook Air to back up image files that I shoot while traveling. Since I only need to copy the Lightroom Classic app from my iMac to the MacBook Air (not the catalog/image files froim...

    "All Synced Photographs": A Couple of Questions

    Having some spare time on my hands, I was curious why in the Catalog Panel I had about a thousand images in the All Synced Photographs collection. It is my understanding (which could be totally wrong!) that images in this collection are from using Lightroom Mobile. If I am correct, this is...

    NEC's MDSV Calibration Sensor

    Note: This seems like the most logical subforum for a question on color management. If I erred, please let me know so that I can post it elsewhere. I have been using an older NEC Eye-One Display 2 sensor to calibrate my NEC P221W display. With the installation of Apple's latest OS (10.15), I...

    Blurb: Your Thoughts?

    I would like to have a photo book printed. The idea of using the Book Module (i.e. Blurb) in LR Classic CC sounds convenient. However, I am most interested in print quality. Unfortunately, the comments & reviews that I have seen regarding Blurb are rather dismal. So I would appreciate some...

    Confusion on Transfering Catalogs Between Computers

    This is likely a remedial question. This is the first time that I have transferred a LR catalog from one computer to another. Specifically, I returned from a trip to Sicily where I backed up all of my images into LR on my MacBook. This enabled me to keyword my images & to add meaningful...

    Setting the White/Black Points

    In LR v7.4, the first thing that I generally do is to set both the white & black points. However, I noticed that if I set these points after moving one of the other Tone sliders, the values of the white & black points will be different (compared to setting them first). This is understandable. My...

    Basic LR Mobile Question

    I just downloaded LR Mobile v3.3.1 onto my iPhone 8. When I launched LR Mobile for the first time, I noticed that one of the collections from LR Classic CC (on my desktop computer) synced with my iPhone. Any idea why this occurred? Also, after I Ctrl-clicked on the synced collection &...

    Transferring Images

    I recently bought a older MacBook as my traveling computer. On a recent trip to Alaska, I imported images from my camera into a Collection on the internal drive in Lightroom. Although I do not plan to edit these images until I get home, I did keyword & added captions to the images to keep them...

    LR on Traveling MacBook

    I have a couple of remedial questions. I purchased a used MacBook 13" specifically for backing up my images while traveling. My plan is to install LR Classic & on a daily basis back up my camera's memory card. Also, I plan to keyword & make notes on the images for reference when I return home...
