  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

I recently had to transfer all my OS drive (containing Lightroom and all applications) to a new computer. I had made a clone with Carbon Copy Cloner but alas, some applications lost their activation code! Lightroom is one of them. I have been suggested to remove Lightroom and re-install it. I am in fear that I will lose all my tweaks, Publisher modules (especially the TTG modules and their web sites). I've been using this unique catalogue for over five years. Thousands of images all catalogued and edited.

I am really in a pickle!

So, I should remove the existing copy of LR and re-install from the install disk. I guess I should back up the catalogue before. Thanks for the reassuring.
