    Blurb: Your Thoughts?

    I would like to have a photo book printed. The idea of using the Book Module (i.e. Blurb) in LR Classic CC sounds convenient. However, I am most interested in print quality. Unfortunately, the comments & reviews that I have seen regarding Blurb are rather dismal. So I would appreciate some...

    Confusion on Transfering Catalogs Between Computers

    Thank you. Image files & catalog seem to be in their proper location on the iMac. However, the next time that I transfer the image files & the catalog from one computer to another, what would be the preferred way to transfer both simultaneously? Thank you!

    Confusion on Transfering Catalogs Between Computers

    Thanks, Johan. To copy the images in the folder, can I simply go to Folders & select the relevant folder; then Ctrl-Click & select Export this Folder as a Catalog?

    Confusion on Transfering Catalogs Between Computers

    Johan: Please excuse my ignorance since I have never done this before. First, bit of clarification. I first exported the catalog on the MacBook to a thumb drive. Then I connected the thumb drive to the iMac & imported the catalog. When I go to Folders on the iMac, the transferred catalog appears...

    Confusion on Transfering Catalogs Between Computers

    This is likely a remedial question. This is the first time that I have transferred a LR catalog from one computer to another. Specifically, I returned from a trip to Sicily where I backed up all of my images into LR on my MacBook. This enabled me to keyword my images & to add meaningful...

    Setting the White/Black Points

    As the OP, my sincere complements to Tony for taking the time to clearly explain some of the finer points of tonal adjustment. Although I have stumbled upon some of these aforementioned effects on tonality, Tony has presented them in an excellent contextual framework. Nicely done, mate!! Kit

    Setting the White/Black Points

    Conrad: I have always understood that following the sequence of adjustments in the Basic Panel was the intention of the developers at Adobe. And, I have generally followed that sequence. Of course, there are times when a specific Raw image warrants deviation from that "top-down" approach. So, I...

    Setting the White/Black Points

    Barry: Point well-taken. The trade-off between technical standards & subjective aesthetics is certainly a matter of personal preferences & objective standards. Thank you.

    Setting the White/Black Points

    In LR v7.4, the first thing that I generally do is to set both the white & black points. However, I noticed that if I set these points after moving one of the other Tone sliders, the values of the white & black points will be different (compared to setting them first). This is understandable. My...

    Basic LR Mobile Question

    I just downloaded LR Mobile v3.3.1 onto my iPhone 8. When I launched LR Mobile for the first time, I noticed that one of the collections from LR Classic CC (on my desktop computer) synced with my iPhone. Any idea why this occurred? Also, after I Ctrl-clicked on the synced collection &...

    Transferring Images

    Once it occurred to me that the lrcat file only contained the metadata & the smart previews, I knew that I omitted transferring the original images. As usual.....thank you!

    Transferring Images

    Victoria: I might have been able to answer my own question. After I select "Import From Another Catalog" to transfer the lrcat file from the external drive to the desktop computer, I then navigated to Lightroom > Folders Panel > Volumes > External Drive. From the external drive, I selected...

    Transferring Images

    I'm sorry, Victoria, but I'm a bit confused (due to my lack of knowledge undoubtedly). Let me rephrase my question. When I export images from my travel computer to an external drive & then finally to my desktop computer when I get home, specifically which files do I need to transfer (other than...

    Transferring Images

    Following Cletus' suggestion to export the catalog from my travel computer to an external drive & then import that catalog into my desktop computer, I must have omitted something -- specifically, the original files. I discovered this when I attempted to delete several of the transferred images...

    Determine File Size

    No pressing need. I plan to be in Sicily for the month of September. I will be backing up my photos on a laptop that I recently bought. Anticipating the number of images that I will likely take, I wanted to make sure that the remaining hard drive capacity would be adequate. I had no problem...

    Determine File Size

    If I select a collection of images in LR, is there a way to determine the file size (i.e. in Mb or Gb) of all of the images as a group? Thank you kindly.

    Transferring Images

    Thanks, Victoria. Does this means that I need to copy the catalog on the laptop to an external drive & then connect that drive to the iMac to import the catalog? Also, will I need to import anything else other than the catalog itself (i.e. the lrcat)?

    Transferring Images

    Having followed your instructions, I selected the LR catalog (i.e. lrcat) on the laptop. However, I got an error message: " LR cannot import this catalog. The catalog does not appear to be a valid LR catalog". Also (I don't know if this is relevant), the LR Catalog Previews (i.e. lrdata) was...
