    Bluetooth Transmitter

    My desktop does not have Bluetooth. Previously I have just connected speakers with a cable. I now have some nice Bluetooth speakers. Can anyone recommend a good Bluetooth transmitter that I can simply plug into the audio sockets in the sound card ?

    Default Import Settings using LR Phone Camera & LR Phone App

    I am using the LR camera in the LR phone App more and more as I can capture DNG files. I have noted that when I take a photo using the LR camera, LR applies certain default (import) settings (just as LR Classic does). However, in LR Classic I know how to change these defaults but I can't seem...

    Catalog Upgrade

    Just downloaded the latest Lightroom Classic version and upon opening it stated "Catalog Upgrade in Progress" (and moving and compressing sync data). That was 45 mins ago and still under 10% complete !! Is it supposed to take this long. I do have a lot of smart previews synced in the Cloud.

    This is a minor issue that annoys me as it shouldn't happen. I have the latest Win 10 pro OS. Whenever I boot up my desktop excel or word also open up blank pages.

    New Tutorials

    I don't know how long they have been there but I have just noticed that Adobe have added some tutorials to the Lightroom app on Phone (and presumably Pads etc.). These tutorials are very good. They range from specific editing techniques on your phone to general editing techniques.

    I would like to share my recent experience. Years ago (pre-LR) I scanned many printed photos. I did this by putting (usually 4) photos on a the flatbed scanner and scanning to produce a high resolution TIFF file. A few years later after I started using LR I imported all these scanned files...

    OneDrive - How it gobbled up my hard drive

    If you use OneDrive to back up documents then this may be useful for you, particularly if your hard drive is nearly full.

    Preset B&W 12

    There is a black and white preset in Lightroom Classic called B&W 12. When applied it clips the highlights and shadows by 10%. However, I can't find the slider / adjustment settings that have caused this. Any ideas ? To put it another way. How can I replicate this without the preset.
