  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

    I have LR 6.14 and have over 20 000 photos in my Catalog. I regularly back up my catalog and images to 2 external harddrives. If my computer harddrive were to crash or be lost/stolen how would I recover the actual LR program ? Do I need to back it up or would Adobe allow me to reload it onto my...

    Thanks Johan, I don't know what I did. One day they were there and next time I wanted to use them they were not on the left panel of the Develope Mode. Don't know where they have gone..

    Lens Correction

    I am using LR 6.14. I think I saw some time ago a feature under Lens Correction in the Develope Mode to correct the tilt of buildings. Looking there today I could not see this feature. Is it there are was I mistaken?

    Copy Edit Settings from One Photo to Another

    I use LR 6, Perpetual. I have several very similar photos which I think are very good. I have spent some time editing one and have got it to be exactly where I want it to be. How do I copy the settings from the completed on to the others ?

    Thanks Jim, pleased that my Collections are also backed up. Linwood, not sure what I can do to limit the dangers you refer to. When I do backups I use alternate external harddrives. Does this lessen the risk.

    Full Moon Photos

    I am currently using the Develope mode to improve some photos taken of the full moon. The black sky becomes blue and the moon red. I need to move the sliders to their max.to get a balanced picture. Taking it back to the library mode it looks fine. What is going on ?

    Thanks for the help. Have followed both steps you advised and seems like problem is solved. It appears main cause was that three of my collections had the sync box ticked. not sure how that happened.
