  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    Keyboard and mouse....time to dump the wireless?

    How old is your machine? Are you using wireless USB or Bluetooth (I am assuming the former since you mentioned having a dongle)? And are you using a laptop? I ask the latter since folks often forget to disable their trackpads and that can cause erratic cursor movements. --Ken

    Keyboard and mouse....time to dump the wireless?

    If you are having issues with different keyboards and mice, then the problem is most likely not with them. If you do not want to problem solve to find the culprit, then going wired makes sense. Good luck, --Ken

    Laptop or iPad Pro With Lightroom Cloudy On The Road

    It is also worth noting that a 12.9" iPad Pro with a keyboard cover weighs about the same as many laptops, so it important to consider how the tablet will be configured if weight is a consideration. --Ken

    Are full-size and smart previews regenerated and saved after develop edits?

    This thread is prompting me to reconsider my workflow with respect to previews (currently 1:1 on import) as I update my hardware and software next month. Thanks, --Ken

    I believe that Samsung offers software with their 8X0 series of internal hard drives to clone drives for installation that makes the job pretty seamless. Is there anything in particular you are worried about, and are you putting the drive back into the same machine? I know there are some...

    Color Space sRGB or RGB with sRGB Monitor

    Good calibration hardware and software should show you your monitor's profile both before and after calibration. If you are still on a budget and want to upgrade, Dell has some decent models in its line-up as well as a few other brands. I like NEC monitors for their hardware and calibration...

    Hard drive size

    It shouldn't be an issue. If you have a large number of images in your catalog, you might want to move them in batches just to be on the safe side. I find that I have less potential issues with any type of file management (inside or outside of LR) when I handle files in smaller batches. And...

    Iphone 11 Pro Max vs Canon 70D Sample Images

    While I am sure that the new iPhone does take nice images, I am not sure your comparison is apples to apples? Did you compare raw files from each? And if you were comparing SOOC jpeg files, did you adjust the settings for each or just let them run at default? Every manufacturer tunes their...

    Where should you store the catelogs and backups

    Ouch! Sorry to hear about your SSD and catalog issues. When you say your backups do not work, can you be more specific? What is happening and are you receiving any messages from LR? Have you also tried them on a different computer if one is available? With more information we can hopefully...

    exporting raw pics as jpeg without saving LR changes

    You cannot avoid processing as Cletus has described above. You can avoid additional processing, but any software program has to make some decisions about how to render a raw file, regardless of what happens to it next. So, the file you created has some basic assumptions in its rendering, but...

    Laptop advice please

    I do not know the screen quality of the two machines with respect to brightness, color gamut and accuracy, but I would not be interested in a 1080 screen on a 15" laptop. I would take the smaller screen, higher resolution and larger drive (and Intel processor), but those would be my choices...

    Preparing and sending 500+ photos of wedding photos to daughter - Guidance required

    Jpeg vs tiff vs original RAW file

    I wasn't certain if Sony had moved away from Lossy, and that was why I qualified my post above with the links in case they did. --Ken

    Jpeg vs tiff vs original RAW file

    Well, I do not show Sony so I do not know if there have been recent updates to their compressed raw files, but there does seem to some a variety of opinions about the impact of lossy compression, which I believe that Sony still uses. I cannot say if it matters or not, but it sounded like the...

    Jpeg vs tiff vs original RAW file

    As I read Johan's two posts above your message, it sounds like a compressed raw file for your specific camera should be able to provide you with a files size that is less than the 45-50 that you are quoting. Do you not want to try a compressed raw format? --Ken

    Jpeg vs tiff vs original RAW file

    Degradation to the image happens with each subsequent save, so just opening and closing it without a save or any changes should be fine. I do not normally use tiff files so I will let someone else who does answer your additional questions. --Ken

    Lightroom working gamut

    I guess what I am not understanding is why you are not using soft proofing before you export to see what is out of gamut for sRGB? You can then bring down those areas before exporting and then have the entire image within the sRGB gamut. I know this is not a working solution for bulk...

    Lightroom working gamut

    Welcome to the forum. Most people prefer to work in large color spaces with raw files for a number of reasons, including less "rounding" errors when doing any type of adjustments. I am assuming that you are aware of the ability to soft proof images in sRGB when working in the Develop Module...

    Using External Hard Drive on Another Laptop

    Two questions. Are you bringing your existing catalog because you want to work on existing images or because you want to add the new images (or both)? And, why do you not want the catalog to reside on the EHD? If you are just wanting a catalog for new images, I would create a a new catalog...

    Setting aspect ratio in camera vs cropping in LR

    I shoot cameras with both ratios as native. When shooting, I try to keep in mind the final product and then leave room accordingly so an image can be cropped with less loss than expected. For example, I shot an event for my wife in 3:2 format , but knew that we would be printing out 8x10...
