Diane B's recent activity

  • Replied in new to mac
    I'm not really planning to go back and forth and don't really need to write to these older drives, just access them for Lightroom.  I'll write to my new Lacie Thunderbolt\USB3 drive and ordered ...
  • Replied in new to mac
    I'm brand new to Mac also moving from years with Windows though having used IOS for 5 years.  I just bought my Macbook Pro so can't say much about how your Air will handle many images.  I have 15 ...
  • Better explain.  I meant to use with my Macbook.  I just bought my Mac today so am just getting it together after 25 years of Win LOL, but plan to Astropad with it and my iPad Air and Adonis Jot ...
  • A bit OT perhaps but has anyone considered using the Ipad Pro with the Astropad app and their Macs? I'm a long time user of a Wacom Intuos but my USB Wacom has a footprint almost as big as the 15" ...
  • Thanks Tom.  In just this one short thread I've gotten a lot of really helpful info.  I've been on Dpreview since 2001 and tho' there are always some fairly outrageous conversations (primarily ...
  • Thank you.  I'm looking at a Lacie Rugged Thunderbolt/USB 3 drive.  I'll look into this further.
  • Thanks GB also.  Yes, I've had drive failures over the years and have duplicates, one always offsite.  Your more detailed directions will be helpful. Diane
  • Thanks Johan,  I evidently misinterpreted some info and thankfully you all have set me straight.
  • Ah, this helps a lot.  Yes, just theorizing from what I've read, I am going to buy the Macbook this week.  I don't plan to write to these drives, just access them.  I might like to copy the last ...
  • Created discussion thread Moving from Win to Mac, Need some help
    I'm a long long time Win user but have finally made the decision to move to Apple completely (have had Ipads since first week of Ipad 1 and Iphones).  My needs for software have changed also, ...
  • I'm moving from long long time Windows to Mac soon.  I have used many processing and organizing apps in the past, using Lightroom and Photoshop now but not sure I want to do a subscription, my ...
  • I hope it stays civil LOL.  I like both, can't come down on one or the other and have a number of both lenses, still have the old G3 and a GM1 and my current main, the EM5 but I'm looking for the ...
  • My original first m4/3 was the Panasonic G1 which pretty much started it all.  I continued with the GF1 and then the G3 when I switched to the EM5.  I'm still happy enough with it to stick for ...
  • I didn't really choose it over APSc or FF I started with the very first affordable Canon digital, the D30 which was APSc and moved up through various APScs and finally to FF. A number of years ago ...
  • I haven't tried the EM5II but like you after 2 years with EM5 I haven't seen a good reason to upgrade yet.  I have had a number of M4/3s, mostly Panny, and come from FF Canons.  I'm very happy ...
  • Thanks Mimritty, No wonder people are complaining they are unable to find a standalone download page. I haven't tried it yet but I don't want to buy the upgrade as I already have and have LR 6 ...
  • the link to the standalone LR takes you to a page that says My Cart and is otherwise blank except for a log in to CC or more information on the $9.99 and up subscription for CC. Doesn't bode well. ...
  • The 13" Macbook Pro with Retina display doesn,t have a DVD drive. Thanks so much.  I had read elsewhere that the person wanting to find the standalone even called Apple support and they were unable ...
  • Not sure what homework that would be.  I think many were under the assumption that Lightroom would continue with a standalone and there would be no problem.  I still have my custom built for ...
  • I have a bit of a different problem with the whole CC thing. I'm seriously considering switching OS and buying a Mac Pro after many many years with Windows (since 3.0).  My current Lightroom is 6 ...
