    Installation of LR6 on new laptop

    I had to buy a new laptop as the old one packed up. I had LR6 programme on it, but all the photos were on an external Hard Drive. I've been able to install LR6 on the new laptop (via the adobe website). How do I now link lightroom on the new laptop to the photos etc on the external HD? Thank you

    LR6.14 sudden incredibly slow performance; on Mac ~ possibly solved

    Running LR 6.14 on Mac mini 2018 (6 core, 3.0GHz, 8GB RAM). OS: Mojave 10.4.6. Monitor: LG 27UK850 UHD. Until today I've been very happy with LR performance. As I don't have much RAM inevitably there is a Swap file in use especially with a few big apps open but with the Mac's SDD it is still...

    Subscription Pricing--and now what?

    After 10 years of LR, starting from the first beta, it's now time to switch. The subscription model and force to use their cloud is a clever move to make more money with the existing customer base. But this is not future proof for me, as I don't want to get locked in. (plus price is at least 3x...

    LR6 freezes when plugging in any external device

    I installed a new Radeon HD6450 Graphics card on Wednesday. (Meets specifications as best as I can tell). Since then, if I plug anything (external hard drive or memory card reader) into any of my 4 USB ports, LR6 freezes up within seconds. If I try to close LR or click on any another window...

I decide to uninstall LR with the LR uninstaller with a view to rolling back to LR6.7. For some reason, I am now not able to install LR6. I get the attached...
