    Lr 5 switching too custom order

    G'day; it's been awhile so my old faithful Lr5 must be behaving. So glad I had it and didn't think I needed Lr6 or beyond I usually set 'sort' to File name mostly, however Lr is switching to custom order or added order -- usually happens when I send a file to an external editor like Affinity...

    Lightroom only subscription

    G'day; it's been awhile . I was getting a bit left behind with my old faithful lr5 which basically does what I need. But the question is; has there been any mention / thought that Adobe would have a lightroom only subscription as some stage . I don't need Ps or the Cloud part. Not even sure I...

    Lr usability if subs not paid

    sorry; I sure this has been asked/answered before (many times) Can CC users still have access to their Lr library if they stop paying the monthly subs? How usable will it be -- just for old files or can more files be added? I have suggested a few times that long time users who don't want the...

    sitting back with a BIG smile

    I do have rather a smug smile on my face after looking at ALL the thread headings about the 'new' Lr. Abode do seem to be good a causing worry and confusion. While you can; Lr6 maybe a good investment for some As I have said often; there are no regrets not going past lr5.7; bit of an age thing...

I don't have any need to be upgrading Lr as what I have suits me fine; however I would like to know I still have Lr5 if/when I get a new computer --- I'm not sure adobe will make downloading all the easy as I believe it's not an...

    PSD files shacked to the right

    sometime ago I asked for a way to have files edited in PS to be stacked to the right of the original raw file as are the virtual copies --- just seem easier to me and for me; however I am a little dyslexic . The way I'm that does work is setting LR to add "-1" to the file name --- so my new...

    1:1 built previews

    this is not a new drama. Oly em1 16 mb raw files my previews are built 1:1 at import with the idea they can be viewed 1:1 instantly; and it works OK However; files I imported the day before will still take around 10 seconds to load for 1/1 viewing -- even 'to fit' will take around 4 seconds...

    where are the keywords hiding?

    I have been fiddling with ON1 raw. It's good, more like great for editing but a LONG way behind LR as a photo library. ON1 uses a single list for keywords so when a file is sent to ON1 for editing it returns any hierarchy keywords as a single list --- yeah big real quick mess maker lol. And no...

    some good info to get LR and the computer swinging along --- but I still haven't worked out why my LR 5 has such a dislike of keywords and keywording . As stated in the article a LR restart usually fixes it although a 'puter turn off / restart works better You might need a cuppa or stronger...
