    Well if you save them as layered TIF files other software can open them just fine. Of course editing the layers wouldn't be so easy but you would have the image in a readable format.
  • As long as you have a relevant monitor profile for whatever mode your monitor is in then images will look the same when viewed in colour managed applications.
  • Replied in Photoshop CS6
    The CC version is installed on your computer just like other software.  You download it and install it.  The cloud bit refers to Adobe periodically checking the licence over the internet and some ...
  • NEC wrote the Spectraview software to fully control the advanced hardware calibration features of their PA series monitors.  That is why it is so effective. Datacolor write software to enable their ...
  • If you have to do this your screen is too bright.  If everything is set properly then no adjustments are necessary.
  • If the prints are too dark then most likely your monitor is too bright.  Quickgamma can't sort that out.  You really need proper calibration kit.  In the mean time reduce the brightness of your ...
  • If the files are still on your computer then LR has lost its link with them for some reason.  This is usually down to moving the files outside of LR. You can re link the files by right clicking ...
  • Can you see the files in your system's file browser?  Are they in the place you thought they were?
  • Disk Cleanup will do this with no problems.  One of the checkboxes is for converted media files.
  • You don't calibrate an AdobeRGB or sRGB colourspace.  You calibrate the monitor by putting in the targets you want in Spectraview and then you tell it to go and wait a few minutes for it to do its ...

  • Why not calibrate the Samsung TV?
  • Right click a year folder and choose the show parent folder option. Do this until you can see all the folders you want to see. Make sure you keyword your photos as well to help you find them.
  • Lots of pictures are uploaded to Flickr all the time.  Yours will disappear from the top of the recent photos pretty quickly but some people will see them there. You can use the search box to ...
  • I use Exiftool for all my exif editing needs.
  • Really? All cameras at high ISO settings have a reduced dynamic range making highlights blow out more easily. High ISO film has a lower dynamic range than low ISO film and lights would blow out as ...
  • sRGB and AdobeRGB are examples of device independent working spaces.  Monitors will be able to display a certain amount of colours which will cover a certain amount of the colours in sRGB, ...
  • That does make sense.  When I have been away on trips where I took lots of photos I took my cheap laptop to store the images on and maybe do some quick keywording or deleting of rubbish photos ...
  • All monitors can be calibrated.  Results will be less successful for lower end screens though.  TN screens will give poor results. Remember to get a good calibration device - a Spyder 4 or ...
  • You will need an external monitor as laptop screens are usually not suitable for editing.  You need an IPS panel for starters and most laptops use TN panels as they are cheaper. Why do you need a ...
