    Activated Devices Question

    Sounds good. Having not deactivated before, I did not know if it might cause issues down the road. But I am still not sure why there are 2 activations on the same machine? But I think that I'll let Adobe sort it out as you have suggested. Thanks, --Ken

    Activated Devices Question

    While trying to sort out another problem, I noticed that my online Adobe Account is showing two activations fro what appears to be the same machine - one with the name of the machine and the other with the name appended with "_64". Did LR install in both 32- and 64-bit versions? should I just...

    Creative Cloud Account(s) Question

    A quick update. I received a cancellation warning email message from Adobe today letting me know that my payment is past due and my membership has expired on this second account. Ironically, the message had a March 30 deadline but I only received it today. I looked at my Creative Cloud app...

    Does trialing LR Classic destroy or supplant LR6?

    I do not think that I could have summarized it better than Linwood. To elaborate on my OP, I made the switch just a few months ago and found it to be pretty much the same LR with a bit of changes here and there. I did my installation in steps. First I installed Creative Cloud. When that was...

    Does it Make Sense to Move Lightroom Catalog to an External SSD? And How Big an SSD?

    I am not sure if your port will take full advantage of an NVMe external SSD, but they are designed to be faster than those that still use the older, current interface. Here is a link to Samsung's newest X5 drive - a generation ahead of the popular T5 - Portable SSD X5 2TB Memory & Storage -...

    Lightroom Classic - PC

    In the example you show, the parent of the folder you have selected and right clicked is already showing. Move up to a top level folder showing, for example, and then right click. That should, in most cases, show you the "Show Parent" command in the menu. --Ken

    Does trialing LR Classic destroy or supplant LR6?

    I understand the reason why large companies like subscription models as it affords them a predictable cash flow. And like Microsoft Office 365, which bundles up a lot of software, Adobe did the same. So, no, I do not think that what Adobe is offering is unreasonable. However, I am still no...

    Does trialing LR Classic destroy or supplant LR6?

    I understand. I am also not a big fan of subscription software. But, when I finally made the switch, I realized that at least Adobe was offering me a variety of software and services within the package. It does not make me a fan, but it does take out some of the sting. You might want to give...

    Does trialing LR Classic destroy or supplant LR6?

    I went from LR 5.7 to installing Classic along side of it and have not had issues with 5.7 since the installation, but then again I have not done any heavy lifting with it. One question, why would you expect to need to spend time with Adobe support to reinstall 6.14? Do you no longer have the...

    Red & Green pinpoint spots

    True. But given the wide subject matter that I shoot, it sometimes takes me a while to discover a hot pixel unless it happens to be in a very prominent location. I did not know if this was a similar case for the OP, so I initially recommended a round of pixel mapping to see if it would address...

    Red & Green pinpoint spots

    Cletus and Conrad's suggestions should also be applicable, but I initially suggested a hot pixel as you mentioned that it was in the same location in multiple shots. I think that you should probably do a combination of things that were recommended above. First, see if your camera will remap...

    Red & Green pinpoint spots

    I would guess stuck/hot pixels. Most cameras allow you to map them out through the camera's menu system. If not, you can clone them out before exporting to print. Good luck, --Ken

    making the jump from LR6 to subscription base - i need to learn!

    Welcome to the forum! I think you will find it a friendly place. Victoria, aka "the LR Queen", has a lot of materials on the site that should prove helpful if needed. Otherwise post your questions as they arise. --Ken

    Where to go from LR 5.7?

    Once you have the software downloaded and installed, the migration from 5.7 should not be complicated. I remember when I moved from 5.7 to Classic and they look extremely similar. You should feel at home, but with a few more new tools that come with the Creative Cloud subscription. Good luck...

    Recommendation for best monitor for photo editing

    I am reminded of the words, "the more I learn the less I know". It is a matter of personal expectations and understanding the limits of display medium. What is important to you and how much effort do you want to put into attempting to get the results that you wish to achieve? I appreciate a...

    Question regarding exporting an edited photo.

    I work the image as to how I want it to look in the Develop module and then export it in the Library module. The Export box has a number of options that you should be familiar with so you get the product you need/want, but if you are just creating a simple export of the file, that should do it...

    Lightroom Catalog on thumb drive

    Samsung's newer version of this drive uses an NVMe controller and it is supposed to be much faster than the T5 series. Unfortunately the price is commensurate with the speed. --Ken

    Lightroom Catalog on thumb drive

    One option would be to buy an SSD drive, like the Samsung T5, and put your catalog with Smart Previews on it, especially if the majority of your laptop work is keywording. --Ken

    Histogram question

    I concur. I had a friend who used to shoot fashion in the days of film, and he frequently blew out the highlights for effect. You can do as you wish, but it is best if you know what you are doing, and why you are doing it. And yes you can be out of gamut on specific color channels with...

    Histogram question

    On the Histogram in the Develop window, the triangles show shadow and highlight clipping. You can pass your cursor over them to see what is clipped in the image, or you can click on the triangles and then they will stay on during your editing and always display the clipped areas. There are...

    Import question

    There are file sync programs, many of which are free, that can create an identical copy of your folder and file structure for whatever folders that you designate. This will allow you another copy of your images that will be helpful if something should happen to the original files or your...

    Recommendation for best monitor for photo editing

    I do not own an iMac so can you tell me if the Calibrated option is one that you created or one that came with the monitor? Calibration software usually allows you to name the calibration when the puck is finished. --Ken
