    Book module Do RAW photos get converted when I upload to Blurb ?

    Well, I am not uploading via a plug-in - I am using the Blurb functionality within LR....and from what the previous answers say, LR does in fact handle a RAW file with adjustments, and it seems that it gets converted in LR.... so I am all set !

    Book module Do RAW photos get converted when I upload to Blurb ?

    I hope this is not a stupid question..... I have recently switched over to shooting RAW only. If I make a book using edited RAW pictures, what type of files get uploaded to Blurb, when the book is finished - is it JPEG files, and if so, do I need to set the quality of those JPEGs or does...

    e-books or real books?

    I have bought 2 of Victoria’s books (they are great) - and both times I bought the e-book/paperback bundle - I like to read a real paperback, but the e-book is handy for reading on the train. It’s the best of both worlds !

    Deleting a RAW + JPEG simultaneously - is it possible ?

    Thank you very much for all replies - I think I am going to change my workflow to shoot RAW only, and take it from there.

    Deleting a RAW + JPEG simultaneously - is it possible ?

    Thank you very much Dan - having read your comments, I am going to re-think my settings. I can see that I will be probably be able to achieve my objectives by shooting RAW only and converting just some of them to JPEG.

    Deleting a RAW + JPEG simultaneously - is it possible ?

    I have recently started to shoot RAW + JPEG . I guess I am trying to get the best of both worlds - many of the images will be fine with just the in-camera processing, but there may be some images that I would like to process a bit more. I am more ruthless than many with my culling, and when I...

    Plug-in that allows you to add a comment....

    Thanks very much - that's the one. I don't think I was using the correct terminology, but whatever I write in that field will not be exported , so it will work for what I want it for.

    Plug-in that allows you to add a comment....

    I am sure I saw a plug-in the other day when I was searching, that allows you to add a comment to a photo which does not then form part of the data attached to the photo. Now I just can't find it. Does anyone know what I am talking about, and can point me in the right direction ? Thanks very...

    Publish Services Problem trying to publish to Instagram - Lightroom 6.14

    Thanks for your replies , Cletus & Roelof. I tried the advice to disable/re-enable the plugins and I also tried downloading the latest LRinstagram plugin, but unfortunately none of those ideas worked, so I then did some more Googling. (which maybe I should have done first) :) It seems that...

    Publish Services Problem trying to publish to Instagram - Lightroom 6.14

    Hello - I wonder if anyone can please help with this problem. I went to publish a couple of pictures to Instagram this evening, using the built in L/R Instagram tool and I get an error message - this is the first time I have ever had this issue: ? : 0 : attempt to index field 'media' (a nil...

    Question about upgrading from 4.4 to 6.x

    I finally got round to buying my LR6 upgrade from the Adobe website and the process went very smoothly. I have not had a chance to have a good look at the new functionality yet - it took about 5 hours to go through all my pictures (only about 13,000) and do the "face recognition" - although I...

    Question on File Export - thank you

    Thanks very much for your reply - I will have to get more familiar with the functionality - I have had a quick look at Virtual Copies, and I think I can see how this will help me... I think I will keep the original file "untouched" and only make changes to virtual copies...

    Question on File Export - thank you

    I shoot exclusively in JPEG, and have been using LR for a couple of years, and up till now I have been editing my pictures in Photoshop Elements and then doing "Save As"... Occasionally I will overwrite the old file completely, and sometimes I will give the file a new name, so then I have both...

    Question about upgrading from 4.4 to 6.x

    Thank you very much Jim - so it sounds like the Adobe website will know I have bought the upgrade, and I can simply log-in at a later date and get the Mac version. I appreciate your reply.

    Question about upgrading from 4.4 to 6.x

    I am going to buy the permanent licence upgrade on the Adobe website. It is a download onto my computer. Up to date I have always been a Windows user, and I am currently using a Windows 7 (64-bit) laptop. In a few months I am thinking that I might buy a new Mac desktop computer with a big screen...

    Culling photographs

    This is a very interesting topic, and in my view it has very little to do with workflow and almost everything to do with the psychological makeup of the individuals. I am sure you have seen the programmes on the television where people can't stop hoarding stuff and never throw anything away. In...

    Additional book templates

    I have done a few Blurb books over the last number of years, but I am no expert. I have only been a Lightroom 4 user for about a year and I just did my first book from within Lightroom. VERY easy to do.... I notice that there are many templates that can be downloaded from the Blurb website for...

    I need to keep 2 collections of images entirely separate - is this possible, please ?

    OK John - you have given me some food for thought and I very much appreciate the effort you have taken to reply - thanks very much indeed.

    I need to keep 2 collections of images entirely separate - is this possible, please ?

    Thank you very much John - it sounds like you are doing something a little bit similar.... These photos are a completely distinct archive - at this point they are not quite all sorted out to my satisfaction, and they do not even reside in the same directory as my own pictures, which all reside...

    I need to keep 2 collections of images entirely separate - is this possible, please ?

    John - thank you very much for your reply. The "scanned" images, to which I refer, are not taken by me - they are the archive of my grandfather's images taken between 1930 and 1960. I want to be able to work on them completely separately, and I don't ever want to see any of them when I am...

    I need to keep 2 collections of images entirely separate - is this possible, please ?

    I am a relatively new user of Lightoom 4. and I am happy with it. I have all my digital images in a catalogue, with a bunch of keywords. Additionally, I have a huge archive of scanned negatives, "reference" photos of Exhibition prints, and other images that are not yet in Lightroom - I want to...

    Introduction - and a question on Metadata.

    Ok - having thought about it a bit more, I think I am just going to make use of the colours to signify the different people in my family who have taken the pictures. That seems to be an easy (and visually obvious) way of doing it. Thanks for all suggestions. Regards
