    Command-F for find in CC 2015.2.1?

    Hi all, I've grown accustomed to using Command-F to pull up the search dialog in the Library. By now it seems to sometimes take LR full screen, and sometimes pulls up the search dialog. Also, when it takes LR full screen, if I Command-F again (to exit fill screen) my Mac's title bar...

    I gather I'm not the first to be bothered by LR CC 2015.2.1 import?

    I just upgraded my LR to CC 2015.2.1, didn't realize there was going to be such an odd change to one of the most important parts of managing my photos, so wanted to ask... 1) Import now opens with some sort of goofy "select a source screen" -- from which I have to then select my SD card --...

    Using 'Export as Catalog...' to archive photos to a file server -- is this right?

    I was advised elsewhere that my workflow above is NOT a good idea. Instead, I was advised to: 1) copy the files I want to archive from my local drive to my network share 2) repoint LR to reference those files on the network share, rather than locally 3) when all that seems ok, delete the...

    Using 'Export as Catalog...' to archive photos to a file server -- is this right?

    Hi all, My catalog file is getting a bit unwieldy, and I'd like to archive some photos to a file server on my LAN. I've never used 'Export as Catalog...' so I'm hoping to explain how I believe I should use it, and somebody here might tell me if I have the right idea. 1) Select the...

    Any tips about how to go from using one big catalog, to using a small handful?

    Hi all, I have one big Lightroom catalog: family photos, "semi professional" photos, stills for time-lapses, etc. I think I need to move some of the photos from my big catalog (which is on my local drive) -- to a new catalog that I would archive to a drive on my network. Just wondering...

    Do I actually need to leave the Creative Cloud manager running?

    So Lightroom 'perpetual' alerts about updates, and Lightroom CC doesn't? I'm using a Mac, but yes -- if I notice software running on my computer that I wouldn't otherwise have wanted to run, I generally try to turn it off.

    Possible to copy adjustments from a gradient/radial/paint to another?

    Thanks -- so no way to copy from one to another? For example, if I set up several radial filters already, and then I wanted to adjust all of them -- it's not possible to adjust one, copy the settings, and then paste into the others? Thanks again, -Scott

    Do I actually need to leave the Creative Cloud manager running?

    Hi, thanks -- my general preference is to not run software if I don't actually need to use it. I don't use any of CC's "sync" stuff -- my only concern is for LR and PS to remain up-to-date, and that I can continue to run them (meaning, no licensing block). If a LR CC or PS CC update becomes...

    Do I actually need to leave the Creative Cloud manager running?

    Hi all, been using 'perpetual' Lightroom for several years, just switched to CC as of LR6. Do I actually need to leave Creative Cloud manager running all the time (and to launch on startup)? I disabled launch on startup, quit the CC manager, and rebooted -- and my LR CC and PS CC still...

    Possible to copy adjustments from a gradient/radial/paint to another?

    Hi all, Let's say I add a radial adjustment, and adjust the settings. Now let's say I want to add a second radial adjustment with the same settings -- is there a way to copy/paste settings from one adjustment to another?

    LR & PS CC for $10/month, or PS only CC $20/month, what's the logic?

    You seem defensive -- I gather you read my comment as offensive -- that wasn't my intention. I'm not complaining -- I'm trying to think through whether I want to switch to getting this software as a subscription -- all other software I've ever owned has been the traditional "perpetual" model...

    LR & PS CC for $10/month, or PS only CC $20/month, what's the logic?

    I kind of feel the changes with LR6 "perpetual" represent a "change in the deal" -- the previous copies I've owned didn't require activation, and could be run on as many computers as I wanted. I'm not sure of the details (so I may be wrong here) but my understanding is that with LR6 "perpetual"...

    LR & PS CC for $10/month, or PS only CC $20/month, what's the logic?

    But what's the logic? Meaning: if single apps cost $20/month -- then why does the bundle of PS and LR cost $10/month? And why would people (such as myself) expect Adobe to maintain that plan? Thanks!

    LR & PS CC for $10/month, or PS only CC $20/month, what's the logic?

    This just keeps sticking in my craw. What's the logic of offering the Photo plan with both PS and LR for $10/month, and also offer a PS-only plan for $20/month? Does anybody get the PS only plan? This arrangement leaves me wondering how committed Adobe can be to those two plans. Just...

    Using LR5 'perpetual' and considering the CC Photo plan -- anything I should know?

    Hi all, I'm using LR5 'perpetual' now, but I'm considering switching to the CC Photo plan. Just wondering if there's anything I should know in advance so as not to screw something up. I'll at least make a copy of my catalog before I run LR6 CC. But anything in addition to that? On...

    Upgrade from standalone LR5 to standalone LR6, or LR6 CC?

    Just curious: how do people reconcile the PS+LR CC plan for $10 when they also have a PS-only CC plan for $20? It seems so "obviously wrong".

    Upgrade from standalone LR5 to standalone LR6, or LR6 CC?

    Hi all, I know it may be pointless to ask, but perhaps somebody can help nudge my indecision. I'm using LR5 as a standalone app. I'd like to start using LR6, but can't quite decide whether to switch to LR6 CC (via the photo bundle) or stick with standalone. I recently purchased...

    "32 bit HDR TIFF" -- "16 bit per channel TIFF" -- I'm confused.

    Thanks, so I'm a bit confused by what these 32 bit TIFFs are -- when talking about a bitmap file, I would think 32 bit means 8 bits each for R, G, B, and another 8 bits for alpha -- so that's 32 bits total. But these "Pro HDR 32 bit TIFFs" seem to be something other than that. For example, I...

    "32 bit HDR TIFF" -- "16 bit per channel TIFF" -- I'm confused.

    I'm not actually using Photoshop at this time, though I am thinking about it. Right now I'm using an app called Pixelmator. My first project has been star trails. I set my camera to take series of 30-sec exposures over an hour. And I bring them all in as layers in Pixelmator, and set all of...

    "32 bit HDR TIFF" -- "16 bit per channel TIFF" -- I'm confused.

    Hi all, I'm starting to experiment with combining several exposures to make one final exposure. It might be a bracketed set in an HDR type scenario. Or it may be a series of nighttime long exposures, all stacked together to get star trails. Given the talk about the not-yet-released...

    Question about print resolution

    It's lame if Canon/Epson are hobbling the performance of multi-function printers -- they're marketed as photo printers. In any case, I'm already noticeably better off at 360 -- and I'm curious to try 720 if there's some way to turn on "Finest Detail"

    Question about print resolution

    Well, surprising results! I printed a hi-res source to 4x6: 1) with resolution unchecked 2) with resolution set to 360 3) with resolution set to 720 It turned out (at least for me) -- 360 is clearly sharper in the details. So now I'm especially curious if there's some way to enable 720...

    Question about print resolution

    It's an Epson XP-620 -- I can't seem to find anything saying it should have Finest Detail -- do you think I should have that somewhere? And yes, (thanks), the resolution display needed to be checked in the Guides section, so thanks for that.

    Question about print resolution

    When I pull up Print Setting, and then select the "Media & Quality" section -- and I just see a Quality slider that goes from Draft to Normal to Best -- perhaps there is no "Finest Detail" option for this printer.
