    smart preview missing after Apple ID logout

    Check in the preferences which catalog Lightroom is using on startup. The catalog shown in the second column from the left does not have smart previews, the catalog with the ‘-2’ in its name in the third column does have them. That suggests that Lightroom is using the first catalog right now...

    smart preview missing after Apple ID logout

    Just place them in the same folder as the catalog file, and make sure that they are called “catalogname smart previews.lrdata”. In your second screenshot that all seems fine, but in your first screenshot the catalog name has an extra space at the end. I’m not sure what these two screenshot are...

    Catalogs Catalog Problem? Not sure what to do, or why it happened>

    Most likely you upgraded the wrong catalog (an old copy). That seems to happen frequently.

    Strange new warning window

    Check that Lightroom has permissions to access removable volumes.

    Develop module Linear Gradient - Purpose of moving the vertical line?

    If you change the centre of rotation, then of course you have to rotate the mask again before you see a difference. I’m typing this on my iPad, so I use Lightroom mobile to illustrate it. First, the normal mask with the centre of rotation in the centre of the mask line: I rotate the mask: Now...

    Develop module Linear Gradient - Purpose of moving the vertical line?

    Of course it has an effect. Imagine changing the centre all the way to the right or left edge of the image… It is not unique however. Changing the centre of rotation is like moving the mask and rotating it at the same time.

    Develop module Linear Gradient - Purpose of moving the vertical line?

    You mean the small vertical line in the middle? That is a handle that you can use to rotate the gradient.

    Is it possible to export a photo without external hard drive plugged in?

    No, the images you are seeing are always normal previews, not smart previews. Smart previews are proxies for your originals, but you have to tell Lightroom to generate them. They are not generated by default. That is why the dialog says that smart previews will be used, if available. So are...

    File Name randomly changed

    No, it is not some weird glitch, at least not one I have ever heard of. Lightroom does not change file names all by itself, so despite that you say you did not do it, my suggestion is that you did. I just can’t tell you how exactly, because I wasn’t there.

    Laptop and Desktop Options with Lightroom Classic

    You did not mention that, and that is why I pointed it out.

    Laptop and Desktop Options with Lightroom Classic

    I believe you forget one thing with your two options: the location of the original images. You do not mention these in your options. As your images reside on your desktop computer, neither option gives you true ‘access to all your files’. You can use smart previews for on the road, but depending...

    That might work. I didn’t know that Duet now also works with computers. I have only used it with an iPad.

    I think the answer given by Apple in the link is ”no”.

    Lens Profile List

    This is the link he gave you, which is the list of supported lenses (and lens/extender combinations) dated December 2021. What ‘more up to date info’ do you expect?

    Lens Profile List

    I believe you have already been given the answer in the Adobe forums 4 hours ago, so why ask it here again?

    Find what? That LG screen?

    Screens and prints (MacBook Pro)

    I’m sure that won’t happen. You may need to make a few more testprints like one did in the darkroom days, but in the end it should always be possible to find a setup that works well.

    Lightroom CC start all over again How

    Is your current LrC catalog still synced or not? If it is, then simply remove all photos from the “All Synced Photographs “ collection. That will delete them from the cloud (but not from LrC).

    Screens and prints (MacBook Pro)

    Just in case you missed my addition: I did not make prints yet, but I compared my MBP screen with this custom preset with a calibrated professional LG screen that costs almost as much as the MBP and they compare very well.

    Screens and prints (MacBook Pro)

    What I would advice you to do is in the video, and what I have done on my 16” MBP. Start by selecting the Photography preset. Then create your own preset based on this, but with L changed to 90. Then simply try a few prints to see if that works. I did not make prints yet, but I compared my MBP...

    Screens and prints (MacBook Pro)

    No, I am not talking about icc-profiles for printing. I am talking about how you normally calibrate a screen, and make an icc-profile for that screen. That icc-profile is then used by your applications when they send an image to that screen. You can’t do that for the new MacBook Pro screens. I...

    Screens and prints (MacBook Pro)

    He is not choosing an icc-profile because you cannot choose an icc-profile. You can choose one of Apple’s “presets” and change that (like he shows), but these “presets” are not icc-profiles.

    LRC and Topaz Denoise RAW Files

    Indirectly that button is already there. Noise reduction in Lightroom can be quite effective, but it destroys too much detail. That is where the new masking with AI can help. This is a good example of the kind of image where I would perhaps use DxO in the past (I have a license for DxO PhotoLab)...
