    Advice on MacBook Pro purchase

    What is your budget and what software do you want to use? And, will you also have a desktop machine? Laptops are not easy to upgrade other than memory and drives, and event these often cannot be upgraded. So, if you want your machine to last, I would splurge on RAM, your drive, and then the...

    Difference in color and light

    Are you downloading raw or jpeg files? And what do the files look like if you view them in another program? --Ken

    Splotchy, banding disappears with 1:1

    I am suspecting that LR created a 1:1 preview when you went to view the image for the first time or when you switched to view it at 1:1 in the develop module. Do you know what preview you have selected for creation on import? --Ken

    When you export an image out of LR, what software program are you using to view the image on your computer? Can you post any examples for use to see what you are describing? --Ken

    Laptop advice please

    My biggest concern with the machine specs that you have listed is that it is not clear how much of the sRGB color gamut the monitor can reproduce. If you are concerned about color fidelity, you would ideally want machine that can reproduce at least 100% of sRGB. Some displays are even capable...

    To Jpeg or not to jpeg

    If you are trying to decide on the best file for printing, I would suggest that you work backwards. If you are printing at home, then as Johan said above, a 16-bit tiff file in ProPhoto is a good choice. If you are sending a file to a lab, you need to know what they will or will not accept and...

    To Jpeg or not to jpeg

    JPEG is a lossy format, and each time you save or re-save in jpeg, the image slowly degrades and artifacts will eventually appear. And in the initial conversion from raw or tiff to jpeg, a lot of data is lost. So, if you plan on possibly working on your images again in the future, you will...

    Lightroom & iPadOS 13

    I cannot say where the problem lies, but if you are beta testing and can report back to Apple, you should do so in either event. They are working out lots of bugs (and sometimes creating new ones) with each beta release, and this may be one on their side. If not, it will be called out as an...

    Lightroom 6.14 - download source?

    My understanding of the installer file is the same as what Johan said. Several members have reported that the installer should take you to 6.14. Are you looking at the version from within LR after running the installer? --Ken

    How to start

    Welcome to the forum. As has been mentioned above, LR6, the last perpetual version of LR is no longer supported. While you may be able to locate a copy and install it, Apple's Mac OS updates will probably cause you issues when you do your next update. The eBooks that Victoria mentioned are a...

    What colors for publishing? Photos (colors) look very different in different viewers?

    You need a colorimeter (aka a "puck") to properly calibrate a monitor. Software alone cannot do it. The puck contains reads what the screen is outputting and works with the software to make corrections to your computer. LR is a color managed program and will be consistent in how it shows...

    Using Lightroom the right way?

    I am not certain I fully understand your existing workflow, but if you are editing images, then exporting them and re-importing them into your catalog, then I would concur with rustyLr on using virtual copies as an alternate work flow. If you need to create multiple copies of the same image for...

    What music you listening to?

    Reviving a very old thread! I was hit with a short deadline on a fairly large shoot this weekend and needed all the help I could get. It turns out that Bill Evans is just the thing. Napster allows me to work my way chronologically through his albums. Jut what the doctor ordered. --Ken

    Big, Big mistake

    I completely agree. But, I know that some manufacturers will create partitions (that are not hidden) for things like BIOS updates, and there are some folks who just like partitions for their OS to be separate from their data. The odds of this are not great, but as the OP is having trouble...

    Two questions. First, how may external drives are you using? Second, does your computer have more than one drive or is the drive partitioned so that it appears as if more than one drive is in the machine when viewed in Explorer? If you your external drives number few, plug them in and search...

    It may not be arbitrary, but Windows has often enough reassigned letters to drives that I have "hard" assigned letters near the end of the alphabet. Quite annoying when it happens. --Ken

    Thank you for providing an example. I know it seems like I am diving into the weeds on something simple like a search, but this is a written conversation between two strangers, and I like to assume nothing. I usually know where I need to find files so I often just drill right down to them, but...

    What Am I Missing??

    Thanks, Mark. I am starting to do hardware and software upgrades, and that will finally include LR. I want to use Classic, but it would be great if I had access to smart previews from my catalog so I can easily share if editing is not needed. Your posts, and Jim's have been especially helpful...

    You can use Explorer to see your files/folders and then browse the file tree (in the left pane), or you can actually type in a term for Explorer to search for in its search box. In the latter, the program runs a query of the files. In the former, you are just browsing (not technically a...

    The images indicate that LR believes your images reside on your C: drive (which is a 5TB drive or partition). Is your C: drive your primary drive (as that letter is usually reserved for that drive)? If so, have you searched via the search feature for a file or folder? And have you looked in...

    What Am I Missing??

    Mark, For point of clarification, when you share images from your phone, do you export the image from the mobile LR app? And does this just attach the photo to the app that will share the photo (e.g. Whatsapp or Gmail), or does it create a local copy that can be shared again later? --Ken

    I would hold off on doing anything with LR right now. Using Explorer, try to find your images among your drives. Unless you somehow deleted them, inside or outside of LR, they should be on a drive. As John Little said, drive letters can get changes by the OS and this can cause havoc if you...
