  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    Newbie, But Coming Up to Speed Quickly

    Been off and on into photography and PS/LR for a long time. Now diving full bore into LR. Have amassed a pretty good collection of photos over the last 48 years or so, many of them slides (an LS-4000 with slide feeder on an old MBPro is buzzing behind me as I write this.) Now, I can finally...
