    Tethered Shooting LR5 and Nikon D7000 HELP !!!!

    I appreciate (now) this may be the problem, oh well it gives Adobe a possible problem down the line. To be honest I am so happy with Windows 10 I am thinking this is a small inconvenience to put up with for the greater all round improvements. I know there is still time for Microsoft to screw it...

    Deleting Extra Catalogs

    Recently I gave a series of talks to my friends at the camera club on LR5 to see if we could drum up a core user group. This was well received by the way and I would recommend everyone in the club scene to try it... nb I am no expert. As if to prove that latter point I need some advice. As part...

    Grad Filter Problem

    Probably LR5 101 stuff but ... When I am applying a grad filter in develop module I am no longer seeing the spot and the three lines which previously delineated the filter. The filter is obviously there because if I make changes to exposure things change. If I click done and go back in to add...

    PS CC Offer

    OK thanks but what I really meant to ask was "if I go with the new CC offering do I use the Lightroom they offer of stick with my own LR5.2 - do I have a choice? will I have to transfer all my catalogues? will I miss out on LR5 updates to my original version? Will my original LR5 be updated? If...

    PS CC Offer

    Really not sure where to post this so took a chance: OK I have to admit I am not the brightest button in the box as they say but I am now getting more confused by CC than ever. When PS CC first hit the headlines we were told there were no plans for LR to go that way. Now I am offered a $9.99 a...

    Catalog conundrum

    I see what your suggesting but that des not release the sheer volume of my master catalog. I suppose I should simply accept that if I am not going to do any more work on them then the JPEGS would be enough. Thanks guys
