  • 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.

Slightly off the topic, but i see the screen shot made by Ian of the preferences page.

How does one do this on a PC? I too have wished to show screen shots of problematic issues but can't figure out how....

I know, computers aren't my thing, cameras are!

On a Windows machine, you can get a screen shot of the whole screen (versus just a window) by pressing CTRL-PRINTSCREEN. That copies the screen to the clipboard, and from there you can paste it into any editing program to trim, save, etc.

If you want a full screen capture, simply hit the PrtSc (Print Screen) key atop right of your keyboard. You can then paste the bitmap in the apps that can accept them.

If you only wish to capture the application's window having focus and not being full screen, just press the Alt-PrtSc key combination.

Please start a new thread when you are going OT, it makes it easier for people to find subjects and answers, thanks;)

I believe this is a stand-alone thread now?

Brad,

I use a commercial program called SnagIt, from a company called TechSmith. I forget how much it cost, but was reasonable, and it enables your print screen button to become almost anything.

Capture an arbitrary region
Capture a screen element
Capture a window
Capture a Full screen
Capture a scrolling window (actually auto-scrolls to capture the full content)
Recursively capture all images on a website
Graphically capture web page with active links


Output to printer
output to file (you name it, including pdf)
output to email, FTP, and combinations of outputs

It can act as a print device, so I use it for the "missing in action" LR "print to jpg" function.

(all this, and much, much more, if you act now ..........)

Can you tell that I'm extremely happy with it? This is one piece of s/w that's earned its keep time and time again for me, and never let me down.


(some other Brad )

If you look a couple of options down below the text box, on a "New Reply", (i.e. not the Quick Reply) you'll see the Manage Attachments access .....

Let's see if the the universe recursively implodes, if I screen capture this :roll:

Save the file with double quotes ("Image.txt"). This will override the default extension (Win).
Altough, you will need a good translator to read... :twisted:
