    Quad Core vs Dual Core

    I have a 15" and 13" MacBook Pro and I don't really notice much difference in performance, however, I do prefer the 15" screen and would choose it every time over the 13" for Lightroom.

    Adobe Sensei, automatically tags your photos

    There is good chance the Tags aren't even human readable so may not be much use too you anyway.

    Is Lightroom Classic end-of-life?

    My guess is Classic will eventually go. The new Lightroom will have everything that Classic has by then with the option of cloud or local storage. (Hopefully) I expect the current code base has become a bit of a monstrosity after all these years of development. A new code base built from the...

    Has anyone figured out where CC cloud library appears in CC Classic

    Lightroom Classic doesn't use images in the cloud. I don't think it will download anything, you have to export the file from LR CC (Cloud) and import into Classic locally. - I could be wrong though as I haven't looked into it that far yet, maybe they can share file information across their...

    Has anyone figured out where CC cloud library appears in CC Classic

    The local CC copies are stored inside the catalog on your external hard drive. Whether they are used or not during editing is anyone guess at this stage.

    New LR Classic - installed and humming away

    Seems to work pretty well at this stage although it is very basic. I can't tell if I have jpg or raw file displayed when working unless I go to the info panel. This is quite annoying for a dual workflow so I'm hoping they add metadata overlay soon. I wonder if Adobe will eventually replace...

    Where is Lightroom CC (Cloud)

    Good point ! I forgot to try that, should have known better having been putting up with the flaky CC app for a long while now ;) It worked - thanks !

    Where is Lightroom CC (Cloud)

    Is the new "Cloud" version of Lightroom CC supposed to magically appear as a download in my Adobe CC Apps drop down ? or do I have to do something to get it to appear? I can't see it, I have the Photography CC Bundle at present and have checked updates.

    Adobe Cloud Storage Details

    I'm having trouble finding details of Adobes Cloud Storage on the Adobe website. With the recent announcement of the new Lightroom I have some questions before diving in. Where are the data centres that store the data ? What DR capability do they have ? What (country's) law can be appropriated...

    Not sure how to phrase question, changing White Balance

    Its still a background process which is what I was alluding to. You don't have to wait for them to continue your "foreground" processing / work.

    Not sure how to phrase question, changing White Balance

    Yes, the thumbnail updates happen in the background and can take a while. The export will honour the changes you have made to the image settings.

    trying to achieve effect

    click on the numbers and the images will show in another tab/window. They remind of Fuji Classic Chrome film simulation.

    Google Nik Collections now free, should I install in Lightroom

    I agree SFX is definitely the best of the tools in the NIK collection.

    How to use XMP sidecar files for JPEGs in Lightroom

    I think if you make the jpgs read only then LR will create an xmp file because it can't write to the jpg. It did this in earlier versions but I haven't tested it in years.

    JPEGs not being imported

    I'd like to import RAW + JPG and keep the JPG's as the masters and the raw as sidecars. That way I have access to the RAW if I need it but can use a JPG workflow 99% of the time. Aperture used to allow this :)

    Why use DNG instead of NEF (or CR2)?

    1. No, they are the same. 2. It includes all information. 3. Yes you can, edits will remain. 4. They are treated as separate files. 5. Other raw converters may not support DNG very well.

    Version 2015.2.1 has the potential t corrupt the LR catalog

    All the images are greyed out in the import dialogue, so is the import button. Don't have time to muck about with it to be honest, so will just wait for the next update which may fix it. If not I'll stick with CaptureOne it seems pretty stable now.

    Version 2015.2.1 has the potential t corrupt the LR catalog

    My import still won't work at all on my iMac. I'm using CaptureOne at present to get around it.

    Is the Develop module falling behind the times? (Capture One)

    I use both. CO has some great develop features that make more sense (to me) than LR's. LR is a much better DAM and has better output capabilities. Put CO's raw engine in the LR development module and I'd be very happy :)

    Maybe the OP means the watermark. Lets wait and see.

    Transition from Old Folder System to New Lightroom Catalog

    step 2, think carefully about using dng, do the benefits "for you" outweigh the disadvantages ? You can keep you current file system and still rename and build a metadata based view using collections if that was helpful.

    Upgrade to LR6 and move to new computer....which first?

    Move the catalog and files to the new machine. Install LR6 and then open the catalog and it will upgrade it for you.

    Am I Missing the Boat? I Still Rely on Pure Folders

    I don't use collections, only smart collections based on metadata (not keywords) and not many of them either. My strategy is folder based and its great because I can use other software outside of Lightroom and still see the same system of management. I can open all my images in CaptureOne or...
