    Outsourcing workflows

    . I typically edit for other photographers using a catolog and smart preview workflow in lightroom classic. I just got a request from a photographer who uses cc If I can edit for them. Is there any sort of workflow to edit in classic and then send it back up to cc .

    Develop module Validating my color matching workflow

    Hello all, I am trying to maximize my efficiency in LR, and one of my biggest hurdles is color matching. I mostly do restoration of printed material, and oftentimes a photo on one page may differ from one on another page, or worse, the colors in one half of a photo on the left-hand side will...

    35mm Slide Scan Metadata and Organization advice

    I finally decided to digitize my fathers slide collection (40 kodak Carousels). I'm using an Epson Perfection 2400 photo with a 4 slide tray. Epson's software works on Windows XP so I created a Virtual Machine with XP got the scanner working. The slides are scanned at 2400 DPI TIFFs. I use a...

    Macbook Pro to replace Windows laptop for travel/holiday?

    I recently posted this question on the Adobe Community LR forum, but no replies, so I am hoping that I might get advice here from those who have been down this road already. I need to replace my 10 year old Surface Pro 3 for Lightroom use when away. It was fine with my Canon 6D and 7D2 up to a...

    Lightroom workflow with Topaz Photo AI?

    The new Lightroom denoise function is quite good and I plan to use it when all that is needed is eliminating noise. But I often want to eliminate noise and sharpen (and maybe upsize the image). For those tasks I use Topaz Photo AI. But when in the process is 'right' for that step? I know I...

    Trying to start using LRC -

    I am trying to discipline myself to use only LRC and not go the easy route and just import into Aperture on my Mojave Macs. But as I have been busy I haven't really done much and while I have an LRC catalog and collection of images we are not talking about too many [maybe 2000] nor that have...

    Exporting collection as catalog and importing it back to main catalog when back home.

    I work on a big large catalog that contains all my archives. It stays on a SSD drive that I plug to iMac or Macbook depending where I am. The latest raw files are on the SSD, all archive RAWs are on separate hard drives that I do not carry with me. I worked few weeks back on a subject (and...

    XMP Files / workflow and backup

    I wonder if I do it right...(and already know there must be a better path...) ;) I work with one big catalog. My catalog setting is set to "Automatically write changes into XMP" (I shoot mainly Fuji RAF & Leica DNG). Catalog on external HD#1, Raw files present in my catalog are on HD#2. HD#1...

    Needing to preserve edits of DNG files for Laser Scans and have a deadline by next week, any help would be useful, thanks!

    This problem is quite complicated and probably going to require some deep thinking, but nevertheless, here we go! Essentially, I have a collection of .dng files from 4 firefly cameras that are used in combination to create a stitched 360 image. These 360 images (also known as panos) will be...

    Newbie- trying to adapt myself to Lightroom Classic [desktop app, not cloud]

    I have used Apple's Aperture since it first came out and am now trying to transition to using Lightroom Classic. I've read the ebook and been trying to understand and move forward but am having a bit of trouble adjusting. First, I gather that there is no list view, unlike Aperture. That...

    Laptop and Desktop Options with Lightroom Classic

    As I see it, there are two basic options if I want to use Lightroom Classic with both a desktop and a laptop: I would have a master catalog on the desktop where all of my images reside, and a secondary (or "temporary") catalog on the laptop for use when I am away from the desktop. If I import...

    RAW files imported in Classic, edited in mobile not synching back to Classic?

    Hello Lightroom Hive, I have a fairly developed, if painful, workflow that involves mostly Lightroom Classic and the mobile app on iPad Pro. I import JPEGs and RAW into Classic, add them to a synched collection, they eventually show up in the iPad where I cull and process them mainly for speed...

    LR Cloud Setup

    I've been reading tons of information and "I think" i have my head wrapped around this somewhat, but please correct me if I am wrong. I have a MacBook pro with LR Classic, iPhone and iPad Pro with LR. I plan to use a card reader with my iPad pro and put my images into the system that way. I...

    Topaz deNoise in LR workflow

    There's already a thread for this but it seems to be discussing the Topaz noise reduction software used as a plug-in rather than as a stand-alone product. Am I right, though, in thinking that use of the Topaz products as plug-ins to LR means that any original RAW file must be exported as a...

    Need advice for professional workflow using LR-Classic with LR-CC for iOS+iPad

    I'm a professional photographer using LR-Classic. I need the flexibility of the desktop based solution rather than LR-CC as I can customize for my specific needs (ability to rename files on import, storage on fast local RAID, advanced developing and printing, etc.). However I would love to be...

    Workflow from iOS: Capturing Apple keywords

    Hi folks, I am working my way through a back catalog of 150k (very amateur) photos taken over the last 20 years or so. I have a workflow and a system in place by which I star-rate them (1=delete, 2=archive, 3=keep, 4=share, 5=showcase) in offline LRC (on PC). This works great for photos taken...

    Work flow with a retoucher?

    I've started working with a retoucher to edit a moderate volume of photos every day. So far I've been uploading the photos to Dropbox. She downloads them, retouches in Lighroom, and uploads them back to Dropbox. The process is slow (since I'm sending GBs of RAW files) and if I need to make...

    Workflow feasibility - struggling to get the big picture

    hi everyone, As a long-timer Lightroom 6 user, I am trying to get a sense of whether i can satisfy all my needs with/within the Adobe software for photographers. The Adobe online help articles didn't... help me do so. They are topic-specific and i feel, fail to explain the big picture well. I...

    One catalog for everything (from mobiles images to SLR etc).

    I know this is going to stir a pot with people and you're always going to get people doing things massively differently. I think this is a question where the pros might have to take a back seat on. This is more a hobbyist approach than pro. So basically in a time where cloud sync is a reality...

    Does Classic Know Which Photos Were Previously Imported From LR CC?

    Let's say you are traveling and take 25 photos (just for example, there will be more of course). And you 'import" 10 of them onto your iPad or MacBook Pro via Lightroom CC at the hotel. They sync to the cloud, then download to Lightroom Classic (home based). Now, you get home and want to...

    Classic vs CC

    I've been using Lightroom (now Classic) for many years now. I have not yet used Lightroom CC and I am trying to figure out if moving to CC is something I should do, or if I should just stick with Classic for now. I would be happy to read posts or pages from Victoria's books if anyone can point...

    On the go workflow

    I wanted to give LRCC a try on a project I'm working on, and I'd love to hear some feedback from people who've used both CC and Classic CC. I typically work on a single device, a Surface Book 2, and I initially transfer my RAW files to an external drive (via LR Classic import) and build both 1:1...
