    Blurb: Your Thoughts?

    I've used Blurb once, with good results. As others have said, look for discounts from Blurb, if you can wait.

    Book module: Publishing to Blurb... layflat conversion?

    After going through their help sections, which are not all that helpful, the answer is yes you can, but with some difficulty and restrictions. I haven't tried this, but it appears you can convert your project (once loaded on their website) from 'bound' to 'lay flat' with a max page limit of 110...

    Book module: Publishing to Blurb... layflat conversion?

    Operating System:Win7-64 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):5.7 I recognize that the Book Module in LR5.7 does not offer to print a lay-flat book using Blurb. My question is there a way after uploading to Blurb to convert your book to a lay flat format without having to...

    Not staying logged in

    Thanks Victoria. FWIW, this isn't a big deal, just annoying. As suggested, I selected all cookies from the lightroom queen webpages, there were about 10 or so, and deleted them. I then went back to the forum via my link to Recent Posts. I was asked to log in, which I did manually putting in both...

    Not staying logged in

    FWIW, I too have to log in each time. I'm using Firefox in Win7-64. I will manually delete and enter my password to see if that circumvents any browser password manager problems. 1hr later: Yes, manually deleting, retyping and saving my password appears to have corrected the problem.

    Making global change to title in metadata?

    Operating System:Win7-64 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info):5.7 I've added titles in the metadata to over 200 photos that are part of a book I am working on. I need to make a spelling change to approx. 20% of these titles. Is there a way to search and change globally, without...

    Website Closure is cancelled! We're staying open!

    Yes, this forum is a major selling point (for me) in sticking, for now, with LR. Yes, this forum is _much_ easier to use. Yes, the sense of community and camaraderie is greater here than on other LR-specific forums. Yes, although I wouldn't use "intimate"; informed without bias is more what...

    My CS6 registration number no longer valid?

    Thanks. I looked in vain for how to contact Adobe from their website, but was unable to find an email address to write to them, and their chat service was not operating at the time I checked. What is your recommended means to get a hold of Adobe product support?

    My CS6 registration number no longer valid?

    Operating System: Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): 5.7 I recently recognized that my copy of photoshop cs6 is not the latest version (of the CS6 lineage). I discovered this when wondering why its patch tool did not work on a new layer, even though I had clicked on the all...

    A took a bit of head scratching, but the solution was straightforward: reset photoshop's keyboard shortcuts to their default.

    Photoshop CS6 Step and Repeat not working

    I understand that photoshop's step and repeat involves selecting an object, using ctrl-alt-T (windows) to transform the object, followed by shift-ctrl-alt-T to repeat the transformation. At least, that's what I've read in numerous forums and seen on youtube tutorials, yet on my version the...

    Frequency of monitor calibration for non-professionals

    Once a month on my two monitors. The before and after images are usually quite similar, varying mostly in brightness. I agree that it's a worthwhile exercise, especially as it only takes a few minutes.

    LR Classic CC - Any happy campers?

    Thanks Ferguson. I hope that Win7 was just not tested. I hope to get more information on the compatibility between Win7 and Lightroom CC. I'll post if I do.

    LR Classic CC - Any happy campers?

    So, one cannot install nor run Lightroom CC on Windows 7? Is that correct?

    LR Classic CC - Any happy campers?

    I hope I haven't missed this in a previous post, but has anyone moved from v5.7 to LR Classic? Any problems? I've got to upgrade sooner or later, hence my questions.
