  • 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.

Thank you for asking. Mostly Jazz, not so much 'modern jazz' but the older and the latest. I am lucky to have an NPR station here that does 2' hrs of Jazz. and two other so fill in much of the rest. I hardly listen to CDs or iTunes music at all. Plenty of variaty!!! in my chosen listening style, on the air.

Hm... normally just about anything, from Linkin Park to Billy Joel to RUSH to Siouxsie and the Banshees. Depends on the mood and the iTunes playlist. When I was active on the road at work, especially at night, it leaned more towards KMFDM or NIN, but that's another story for another time. 8)

Maybe this is the thread where I can ask a question. I have no idea who among the "new groups"(post 2''') would play music I would like. I'm 57 and grew up with the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Led Zepplin, etc. I love Rock and also Soul(Temps, 4 Tops, etc.). I want to find out who among the newer performers I would maybe like. My 13 yr. old son says the big group among his friends is "My Chemical Romance". What kind of music do they play, and who else is out there? Thanks, Jon(the dinosaur:lol:)

Given the bands that you listed I don't think that you would like MCR that much. They're kind of a pop-punk sort of band. Here are some that you might like.

Ryan Adams - "Easy Tiger"
Feist - "The Reminder"
The Decemberists - "The Crane Wife"
Wilco - "Sky Blue Sky"
Band of Horses - "Cease to Begin"

Im 54 ( a young dinosaur) and to some extent am in the same boat. What I do is listen to the Radio! Thne I make a note of whatI like and then either listen to a snippet on iTunes or ( more often) go into the store and listen to the t racks there.

also MTV??? ( a bit desperate that;))

I am also fortunate that a lomg time frind buys a lot of music , but his tatse is not the same as mine, the the radio is a good one.

I listen to internet radio on iTunes mostly

Do you listen to your son's music? I found a few I liked from listening the the stuff my gtirls played.

Nearly 59, and much prefer the Jazz covers coming out these days for much of the Early rock and folk of many artists including the Beatles, Elvis, Leonard Cohen, Lora Nero and the like.

That won't be so easy to answer. Do you have iTunes? Go to WICN.org and click on the Listen Online link. You will get 2' hrs a day streaming Jazz and they play this stuff. They also have info pages on featured artists.
