• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • 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.

    Lightroom CC on a third Computer ?

    I have the 1TB Photography Plan (LRCC, PS, Classic, 1TB) which allows me to activate two computers at the same time. I currently have my two Macs activated but would like to also activate on a Windows laptop. The choice seems to be: 1. Buy a license for a third computer....can't see any info...

    LRCC is putting originals in Library not the external drive I have specified

    Background is that I have 75000/500 of pics GB on my Adobe Cloud. All was good until I tried to change the location of the originals from one external to another bigger one. I moved the originals to the new location then opened LRCC and changed the pref setting to the new location. It went...

    Still no printing from Version 2

    I am surprised to have seen little (=no) comment that print capability has not been added to version 2, the first major update. I have seen it suggested that Adobe might not do this because LRCC is not aimed at the type of photographer who wants to print. Have Adobe got printing in LRCC on a...

    Slow Thumbnails in lib view a Graphics Card limitation?

    When I am in Library/Grid view, and I scroll down, the thumbnails for the new images take an annoying second or two to become sharp. This is every time the folder is used, not just the first time. I always import with standard or 1:1 previews. Are these thumbnails drawn by the graphics card...
