    Problem with Radial/Gradient Filter/Brush tools

    Jim, that worked perfectly first time!! So simple yet not one of the four advisors I spoke with at Adobe suggested it! Five hours with Adobe and Apple most of which was trying to find a way to download the screen sharing software and you solved it in no time at all. Thanks very much!

    Problem with Radial/Gradient Filter/Brush tools

    Any help/advice gratefully received. I'm having problems with the the above tools. For example if I use the radial tool - I draw a circle and immediately the area within it darkens as if I've reduced the exposure but all of the sliders are set to zero. If I make any changes I do not see them...

    LR Classic - Backup location issue

    Hi Johan, It is using Catalog-3-2. I assume it is perfectly fine to delete all other catalogs as I'm not using them?

    LR Classic - Backup location issue

    Thanks for responding. I have my iMac linked to a 4TB external drive running Time Machine so my understanding is that if the computer hard drive crashes I would still have it backed up on that drive (hourly back ups) so I think that's ok? Is it as simple as just choosing a new destination in...

    LR3 and linking to images on external drives - HELP!

    Hi Jim, I had deleted some of the 2011 subfolders from the internal drive and left some on the internal drive hence the mix up! I have now copied from 'Back Up A' to the internal drive all the folders that I had originally deleted and they could then be seen by the 2011 parent folder. So I...

    LR3 and linking to images on external drives - HELP!

    HI Jim, Thanks for the quick response. The new drive is showing in the folders panel, it's the one at the bottom of the screenshot shown as 'Back Up A'. I had not noticed it there and you are quite right the 2010 parent folder is there and all of the subfolders for 2010 are also there and not a...

    Greetings all!My first time on here and I have a problem! Apologies for that but I'm sure I'm not the first. To set the scene - I have been using Lightroom for a few years but I'm far from an expert. I run it on an iMac with a 1TB drive, I shoot in Raw and have 30 - 40,000 images. I have my...
