    Something has happened to the tethering on my MacBook Pro.

    Actually, I had to revert to an older MACos version when performance died after an upgrade. From Googling it appears this was an 'undocumented feature' for older Macbooks. Using the TimeMachine, I was back to where I had been a couple of days before in no time. For me at least it was totally...

    Mapping external drive

    Actually, it's fairly old. I may just know about it growing up having to use command line to do most of the sharing in the early days. So, if I want to make a remote connect, from a CMD prompt I'd enter "net use * \\host\share * /user:name where the first * means to automatically assign a...

    Mapping external drive

    Cletus, I'm not the OP just a curious participant in the thread :) . So, what I gather, you are referring to NAS or network based drives rather than direct connect. Will keep in mind. I have noted though when Windows connects a remote service, it assigns from Z: down.

    Mapping external drive

    Cletus, I've never done this on Windows. Can you provide an example? I'd like to consider starting to use it. I have an external drive I use for backups. I have it strapped to P: and that's what the nightly backup job references. It has not changed once I set it.

    Malware on Macs

    Glad you had a chuckle Ferguson. I feel it's first principles. Understand the organization and architecture of an OS before determine where you need mitigation. It's sort of the opposite extreme of security software vendors saying what you need. They have a hammer so everything looks like a...

    Malware on Macs

    Back to my original point. Let's not brush all OS architectures with the same security brush. Windows is different from MACos which is different from other variants of Unix/Linux and other 'ix's. See https://www.apple.com/ca/business/docs/resources/macOS_Security_Overview.pdf

    Malware on Macs

    I would recommend independent research rather than just replying on the opinion of a vendor who sells malware protection software.

    Thanks for the detailed information. I didn't understand the extent of what you can do.

    Lightroom Enfuse no Longer Works on Mac O/S

    I'm trying to learn here but my understanding was you merge the pictures using HDR software then make changes to the resulting image. Just did some checking and found this which seems to talk about the same workflow HDR Lightroom Workflow - Faster and More Natural Results. What I don't...

    Thanks for confirming my sanity Conrad ;-) albeit that mine may not have been in the right context.

    Using AI to automatically keyword or tag photos

    I know there is some face recognition in the current LR but I haven't investigated it since I mainly take landscape and underwater pictures. I recently added Cloud Tagger to to give me a start of keywording. I find it's a good starting point. It uses Google's Image Analzer (see sample screen...

    Setting a Photo to READ ONLY

    Thanks all. I'd never thought about the lineage from RAW to TIFF to TIFF etc. Getting my head around that. More of a personal issue than making sense.

    Setting a Photo to READ ONLY

    I hadn't thought of that Califdan. I'd always assumed the RAW and it's changes were the preferred way. I was treating the TIF as a derivative image. You've given me something to think about Ya, after I came to same decision

    Setting a Photo to READ ONLY

    I know sounds strange but here is the situation. I use TOPAZ tools for sharpening and denoising as needed. The plug-in works great because the resulting TIFF file is stacked with the original RAW file but is displayed unstacked. More than once, I've gone back to do further editting on the photo...

    Alternative Use of Star Ratings

    Marvelous Jim! Thanks. Exactly what I was looking for. I'd seen the 'End Mark' in Preferences but like many things in LR had no idea what it meant. Thanks for the ref to the FAQ. Will make use of that.

    Alternative Use of Star Ratings

    Personally, I'd like some place to document by choices for which star means what.

    Lightroom Enfuse no Longer Works on Mac O/S

    Another consideration is to install Enfuse and run it directly and not through the plug-in.

    Starting Over With Lightroom Classic with a New Computer

    I had evolved my use of LR over time so had a mix of practices. I chose to start with a new catalog a reload the files. In hind sight, I would have been better off staying with the existing catalog and moving files around using LR. I'm still only part way through my reconstruction. The...

    Is this happening when you are trying to do backup or just exiting without backup? If when doing a backup, what was the step being displayed.

    Filters for Real Estate Interior

    Sorry Venom. I was trying to help by suggesting there is likely other options other than presets. Not sure why you think that's the silver bullet for what you need. On a number of Nikon cameras, there are Picture Controls as well as modes that may help.

    Do you use Print Sharpening in the Print Module?

    Thanks also. I just found this looking for "Develop Module Sharpening versus Print Module Sharpening". Very useful.
