  • The December 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic is just bug fixes and new cameras in this release, but it fixes a whole load of macOS Catalina issues.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options and direct import on iOS and the ability to contribute photos to someone else's account from the desktop/mobile apps.
    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.

Slightly OT - Recommendations for iMac display calibration

I need to calibrate the display of my new iMac. In the past I've used a Spyder3Elite, but the software does not work under MacOS 10.13 :(

The choices I could find are the Spyder5PRO, Spyder5ELITE, Spyder5EXPRESS, X-Rite i1Display Pro and X-Rite ColorMunki Display.

Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks and regards,

Color Munki will do the job, but the i1Display Pro will do a much better one (it's the one I use). If you print, make sure you get the right profile for each paper-and-ink combination, because you'll waste a lot less paper and ink trying to get a decent print.
