• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The August 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes advanced GPU support, batch HDR/pano merge and more. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has deleted photos on the desktop/mobile apps, as well as video support and batch metadata editing on Android. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

http://photofocus.com/ - why he might move from Apeture. Interesting what he says about RAW conversion and clarity

That's a quite a big story. Scott Bourne was a photographer that championed Aperture right from the get go. It's telling that his leaving is as much down to lack of communication as it is to product features. Apple have always controlled their user experience with great skill. While I sometimes wonder when reading Apple announcements and communications if I'm being addressed by Apple product designers or Apple marketing and PR people they have a very loyal customer base. But they shouldn't take the Apple Love they receive for granted. Loyalty is hard won but easily lost they say.

Apple is prime for a stumble. Steve Jobs passing had to be a distraction. Now, with new leadership and new thoughts on direction, it may take some time to refocus.
Perhaps the most important reason that Apple is due to stumble is that I recently became a convert...

Apple has already stumbled, in a big way. They changed Final Cut and basically gutted it and that was under Job's watch.
