Picture tells a story...
But it is polished aluminum, not stainless steel.
With LR you can do that.. Tag, process your files and export them as 16-bit TIFFS.
And Zamac said the time it takes to remove images… again: after you have marked all the bad images you can remove them only from your catalogue, or completely from your computer in a single action. SIMPLE, EASY. BUT YOU MUST KNOW WHAT TO DO!
The most difficult thing for the uninitiated to grasp (and believe) - in my humble estimation - is that ALL your processing changes that you have made are automatically saved. Now - to get your final product - you need to EXPORT. I have export presets - from prints to view files and BIG prints, for screens for phones and for tablets. Select the images - using dates, flags, color codes or keywords - and output them. BUT you need a mind shift - simple for some users, major for others.
Last but not least - the fact that LR does not TOUCH (i.e. write to the file) of your precious image (depending on settings) is an amazing plus.
As a long time amateur photographer and LR user I find it strange that the negative comments are mainly from people that did not take the trouble to learn how LR works.
You can fit the modern, high performance tyres to your car and drive around without pumping them to the specified pressure - the choice is ENTIRELY yours - but then your criticisms are really baseless.
It is no secret that you can have your file structure, save your images there, use LR to copy this locations to its catalog and work from there - like NoVI Photo. The more you do at the import stage, - position, catalogue, keyword, pre-process - the easier and more time you save and the better you can manage your images. And your directory names also becomes searchable...
Excellent! Congratulations on your win.
