    Missing Panels/Modules

    The problem of "missing panels" has become increasingly prevalent, so I thought it worth posting a quick reminder here in the Tips, Tricks & Starter Kit thread that this "problem" is in fact merely an option within Lightroom's UI (all versions). In all of the modules, both the left and...

    This is an often-heard problem relating to the "Edit in Photoshop" command on Raw files from within Lightroom, which will potentially increase following the recent Adobe CC release.

    Was just starting to setup a test of the new DNG options, when I noticed that in Develop there seems to be a change in the behaviour of the "Loading" indicator.

    A Posting Oddity

    Victoria, Beat posted an item in the Equipment Talk forum last night at 9.45pm. Rikk apparently replied today at 12.27pm, although his reply never turned up in the New Posts search.
