    Thanks for letting me know. If something seems to be too good to be true, it probably is.

    Boffal

    Thanks, Victoria. What would happen if I simply stop paying my subscription? Would I still be able to use my current versions of Lightroom and Photoshop? I presume I would not get updates. If I can continue to use the software I presume I would lose it when I replace my PC, is that right?

    Boffal

    "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic 2022 Lifetime Full Version for Windows " is being offered by Boffal (Boffal.com) for £32. I'm seriously considering cancelling my Creative Cloud subscription and buying this instead. I'm not using Lightroom and Photoshop enough for my subscription to be good...

    Laptop Config

    I apologise for bringing this up again, I have read some of the earlier discussions but I continue to struggle with my decision. My laptop has just bitten the dust (fan bearings seized and the cpu burnt out) and needs to be replaced. I use LR and PS and want to do a little video editing (my LR...

    Problem with the healing brush

    Thank you, that was it, problem solved. I thought it would be a basic error on my part, at least I was right about that!

    Problem with the healing brush

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, the Spot Healing Brush works as it should, it is only the Healing Brush that has the problem.

    Problem with the healing brush

    Last week the healing brush was working as it should. Since I updated Photoshop a couple of days ago I cannot define the source region of the image (using ALT-Click). Pressing the ALT key does not bring up the "target" icon on the image and clicking does not define the new source region. The...

    Moving from LR 6.12 to CC

    I have, somewhat reluctantly, decided to move over to LR CC from LR 6.12 on a Windows 10 system. I will also want to use LR Mobile on an Android phone. I recall that some people have reported having problems when they tried to do this and so I wondered if anyone has any tips that might minimise...

    Printing problem

    I apologise if this is obvious to you. When I first started using my Canon printer I had problems with the output. I knew hat I had to set the Color/Intensity to Manual (On the "Main" tab of the printer properties) what was not obvious was that I then had to click on "Set" /Matching and select...

    Mono printing question

    I have recently acquired a Canon iP8750 printer and I'm learning how to make prints of a reasonable quality. For colour prints I use the correct profile for the printer and paper and I allow LR to control the colour management. I am happy with the results when I do this. When I make a mono...

    Printer and printing advice and suggestions requested

    Thank you, Tony, for your help. Having read your reply, I have attempted to calculate the relative running costs of 4 Canon Pixma A3+ printers. It is almost impossible to do this accurately but I have taken the numbers of photos per ink-tank from the Canon web site and manipulated these in a...

    Printer and printing advice and suggestions requested

    I have decided to start printing at home so I obviously need to buy a printer and, if I understand correctly, a device for calibrating my monitor. I would like an A3+ printer. I want the print quality to be good enough for me to feel comfortable hanging the photos on my walls (I am willing to...

    Lightroom crashes at launch

    I have had some strange and random problems with software running on W10 (not specifically LR). I was surprised to find that some of these were fixed by running cmd.exe as an administrator then typing "SFC /scannow" . This, took about 10 minutes and I believe, replaced corrupt Windows system...

    Updating LR 6

    Hi Victoria, Thank you for your suggestion. I'm not particularly desperate to move from 6.1 to 6.1.1 but there may be a future update that I would regard as worth having so I would like to be prepared for that. I intend to follow your suggestion but first I have a question. If I uninstall LR...

    Updating LR 6

    Hi, I have LR 6 on each of 2 PC's each running Win 8.1. On one of the PC's the updating procedure works as it should (i.e. via Help/Updates etc.) This is not the case with the other. When I went to Help/Updates, I got a seemingly utterly useless (to me) CC Desktop window which only allows me...

    I can keyword so fast LR can't handle it

    My similar problem is with LR6, I never noticed this problem with LR5. I would therefore not expect an upgrade to fix it.

    I can keyword so fast LR can't handle it

    Jim, Thanks for your reply. I suspect that there is no need to look at this on your Windows system, Aaron is experiencing the same problem on his Mac.

    I can keyword so fast LR can't handle it

    This seems very similar to the problem I'm having. I posted the following: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/showthread.php?25533-LR-freezes-when-editing-keywords but received no responses. Maybe you and I are the only ones with this problem! I see you have a Mac and I am running on...

    LR freezes when editing keywords

    I recently upgraded to LR6. Except for one issue all seems OK. It's a bit slower than 5.7 in some places but not intolerably so. I decided to thoroughly overhaul the "people" keyword list for my whole catalog on the basis that the new face tagging capability would be helpful (it's not, but...

    Lightroom CC tethered capture with Canon EOS 760D

    I have just upgraded to LR6 which I believe is the first version to support tethering for my camera (Canon 70D). I haven't yet tried tethering through Lightroom but I expect, from what I've seen, that I will prefer to use the software that came with the camera. If I understand correctly, it...
