  • 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 our books, Adobe Lightroom - The Missing FAQ and Adobe Lightroom - 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
    Lightroom Classic us based on the folder-based version of Lightroom and Edit Like a Pro is based on the cloud-native Lightroom desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in 6.

Thicker crop grid lines in 10.2!

Operating System
  1. macOS 10.14 Mojave
Apparently, with the latest 10.2 update, Adobe (peace be upon them) has elected to widen or thicken the grid lines displayed when one engages the Crop tool. Screen shots below---first, from LR 6.14 (renamed 2015.14), second from the latest LR 10.2.
Please give your opinions about this change---
1. I like it.
2. I don't like it. (this would be my choice)
3. Doesn't matter to me.

I like it. HiDPI monitors have long needed this improvement. In looking at the grid line on my v10.2 screen It could be that the grid is now two white pixels wide with one dark pixel on either side . IOW 4 pixels thick. Before, I don't think white was used but some shade of gray and the lines may have used fewer pixels in width.
