  • Status report after 90 days with Lightroom catalog on Mac hard drive:  After about 90 days with my lightroom catalog on my Macbook Pro SSD hard drive, I can say that I have had no issues with ...
  • Replied in Duck ID
    Probably a domestic hybrid.
  • My card details did not change.  Adobe billed to that card in September and October and said they could not bill for November.
  • Created discussion thread Adobe billing system
    I have used Lightroom for at least five years and Photoshop occasionally. In the past, I had purchased stand-alone versions of LR, PS, and Dreamweaver.  I signed up for the trial full CC ...
  • I moved my catalog file to my Mac's 500 gb internal and things seem to be running fine so I plan to stay with this configuration as my default.  It may take a week or so to see if I'm free of ...
  • I think I've read that putting the catalog file on the local machine is preferred.  I've tried about all else so I think I'll give that a try. I think I read that reducing the size of the catalog ...
  • I run LR CC 2015.1.1 with one large catalog of just under 100,000 images and a catalog size of 1 GB.  I removed the development history from the catalog file and reduced it from about 2 GB to its ...
  • I've run into a bug with photoshop cc - image/resize does not work for me on El Capitan.  A Google search found other instances of this issue.
  • I'm on Yosemite 10.10.5. I doubt that my setup is common.  My lightroom catalog is over 1TB and I don't think that many people use the 6TB drive.  It's not clear that there is a relation between ...
  • I have a two year old macbook pro with the latest OS and connect to a Western Digital 6TB external hard drive.  About every two weeks, I see a time machine message "backup failed" and then I ...
  • I did not have the previous 500mm lens so I cannot compare. I've used the 600mm f/4G ED VR and 200-400mm f/4G IF. I'm not using the new 500mm on a tripod but my feeling is that it is quite sharp. ...
  • Created discussion thread 500mm First Impressions
    I've taken my new 500mm out twice.  It's light enough to handhold and with a 1.4TC has excellent reach.  I mostly do bird photography and the new lens opens up flexibility in most shooting venues. ...
  • Thanks for your thoughts.  I'll let it ride and can take care of any issues should they arise.
  • I bought the lens in Dec 2008 and have averaged three days a week shooting with several hundred shots per day.  The lens works fine as far as I can tell.  It did have an issue with "shaking" when ...
  • Created discussion thread FZ1000 excellent travel camera
    Just completed a two week river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam. I found the FZ1000's ability to zoom very useful in framing images. On the cruise tours, the streets were crowded and I did not ...
  • I checked again with the small flash mounted and turned on.  The menu for recording/flash still greyed out.  Thanks for the notion.
  • Created discussion thread LX100 provided flash
    My flash only seems to work in iA mode and not in A mode.  Also, the menu items for flash are greyed out. No doubt there is a setting somewhere that I am missing.  Appreciate any help.
  • I thought I'd update my original issue with the 600mm "shuddering" sometimes when trying to focus.  This happened infrequently with my D300 or D300s but I have not had this happen again with my D7200.
  • Created discussion thread Lightroom and hard drive
    I use the latest Lightroom CC (photo subscription).  My catalog has 115,000 photos and the catalog size is 2.2 GB. A couple of months ago, I got a 6TB Western Digital external HD.  It seemed to ...
  • Practically, it makes sense to outsource limited printing.  However I enjoy the process of creating something myself and consider it a fun hobby.  Glad to read your points that the newer printers ...
