    Cloud Backup/Storage Services - What do You Use?

    For many years been using the standard Personal Backblaze (can't backup NAS) with one year version history option. This backups my Mac (this holds current year images and other current stuff). I also backup the Mac automatically to the NAS (which holds all my previous years images plus other...

    Hi LR Classic 9.2.1 - I'm moving all my images from old nas to new one. Copying outside LR then finding missing, doing a number of folders at a time and all going fine. I can check all folders are copied at folder level as no "?" once I've pointed at the new location. I want to check every...

    Renewed My Membership

    I've just renewed my membership, as you say great value keeping books up-to-date etc. I've brought both books in paper format & ebook versions as I like to read a real book but also having the latest update as an ebook is best of both worlds. I've got to say even if I didn't get updates with...

    downloading HEIC files

    I've just found that iPhone 8, brought last week, is producing HEIC files. Downloaded "iMazing HEIC Converter" and converted them to jpegs. Changed iPhone Camera options to "Most Compatible" so it produces jpegs now, will change back when HEIC is supported.

    Combining iOS and DSLR photos, and then exporting to iOS

    My plan after reading this forum and Victoria's excellent new FAQ book is to use both LR Classic and LR CC. Note "plan", I've not tested it yet!! I use Classic now and have far to many raw images to start keeping them in the cloud. My plan is to import DLSR and compact camera images into...

    Should I ignore Lightroom Mobile

    Thanks, I appreciate that, but if your going to go to the trouble of syncing why not do all the location fields seems daft to me.

    Should I ignore Lightroom Mobile

    I worked in sales and marketing and to me it was an excellent example of upsetting your current customer by producing doubt and uncertainty and naming a new product that doesn’t convey any meaning to what it is. Other than the fear of Classic not being developed I actually like the options now...

    Should I ignore Lightroom Mobile

    Ah right so there’s not a LR Mobile and the LR CC, Mobile has turned into the IOS/Android part of LRCC. Think it’s people still referring to Mobile that has confused me. Cheers.

    Should I ignore Lightroom Mobile

    I’ve pretty much decided on my LR Classic / LR CC workflow (with much help reading this forum. Classic will be my main stay with LR CC being used to import images when I travel (being synced then deleted on my return) and LR CC also being used to share chosen (Classic) edited images on my...

    Backing up Images using iPad, External Drive and LR

    Thanks Conrad. Didn’t realise USB-C becoming the “standard” (well as much any IT standard. Just looked at the Dell XPS 13, impressed. Think I need to take a step back and consider things as a whole; iMac, netbook, iPhone all getting old so need to consider where I’m going PC or Apple but that’s...

    Backing up Images using iPad, External Drive and LR

    Thanks Gnits I think I'm leaning towards a MacBook, just too much fluffing around trying to get an iPad to do something it's just not designed for. If I do I'l need to sort the USB C stuff, why can't apple just keep to whats seems to be the standard of USB3 instead of always trying to move the...

    Backing up Images using iPad, External Drive and LR

    Hi Johan Just looked at the Sandisk website, they do some interesting portable storage devices. Can't see how I can get images from CF/SD cards to them, suppose I'm asking a bit much. May be a nice small Apple Macbook is really the answer. Thanks

    Update : Getting Phone photos from Phone to LR Classic on Desktop and syncing Smart Previews

    Thanks Mark, very helpful. I like the idea of uploading when I’m away in case laptop lost/dies or when I don’t have it. I’m a bit paranoid about backing (used to be in IT) so I also take a portable external drive so upload to laptop then copy to external !! Thanks, will setup and test now.

    Update : Getting Phone photos from Phone to LR Classic on Desktop and syncing Smart Previews

    I'm about to setup a workflow with the same objectives you have (plus I'd like an online backup of camera raw files whilst travelling) so thank you very much for a detailed explanation of how do it. I've ignored LRCC up to now to allow things to settle so you've saved me a lot of searching the...

    Domain moved - let me know of issues

    I first tried making password the same and it didn’t work, I then deleted both 1Password logins and recreated them and it then worked ok. I also used my email address on both compared to the username, don’t know if that helps as well.

    Only thing was 1Password getting confused, change passwords to the same (email addy was the same), delete the two 1Password logins and recreated them and now all good.
