Fine here, just tried editing a Nikon Raw file, and it's still a Nikon raw filer after editing.

Edit:

Well, they haven't improved reliability at all. I've just tried importing a folder of images into it, and as I was manipulating some albums and folders, it just crashed, and now won't reload.

Pretty much status quo for me there.

Never had any problems with Mac OS upgrades so I installed this yesterday. No issues at all except it took much longer than any other upgrade - close to 2 hours. This was probably as a result of going through the old itunes library or something. Quite a few apps no longer work and I just trashed them and will find alternatives. Roxio Toast will have to be upgraded at around $100 and the Blue ray ripper/player I was using is gone -any suggestions on replacement? am going to purchase the Pogue's Missing Manual book on Catalina OS. 40GBs of SSD was freed up amazingly.

Thats all good except for:

The need to spend $100 dollars plus on new software to replace perfectly good software that worked before sounds pretty grim to me. I’d not describe that as “no issues at all”

am going to purchase the Pogue's Missing Manual book on Catalina OS.

Maybe a good idea to do that before “upgrading”

Lightroom and everything else works perfectly for me. System feels quick and ready to work.

I'm running a 2015 13" MacBook Pro, i5, 8/128.

Specifically, the software I've tested and verified working well for me includes

  • Lightroom Classic 8.4.1
  • Photoshop CC 2019 (20.0.6)
  • Photomechanic 6
  • Capture One Pro 11.3.1.6
  • Wacom Intuous-Cintiq driver 6.3.36-2

The Catalina update was pretty quick ( ~ 30 min start to finish). On opening your apps after install, there are many new security-permissions dialogues you must pass though--it's reminiscent of Windows Vista; but Catalina requires the permissions only once, and I do appreciate the enhanced security attentions.

Good luck!

I downloaded Epson Scan 2 which works with my older Perfection V370 Photo scanner.

They have quietly added software for Catalina just yesterday Australian time

Apple announced well in advance that Catalina would not run 32-bit applications.  So this isn't a bug – "just" an expected and unpleasant loss of functionality.

That said, if you have a lot of 32-bit applications, this is a good reason for not upgrading, or for having multiple startup disks (e.g., one Catalina, one Mojave).

LR desktop version 6.14 - Works OK, but the only way to get out of it is Force Quit!

Lightroom 6.14, Capture One and Olympus Workspace are all running fine.

What I have read is that Lightroom 6 will run in Catalina if it was already on the Mac at the time you upgraded, but since some of its affiliated installer utilities are not 64-bit, you might never be able to uninstall or install it again. If you need that to keep working it might be prudent to make sure you have a backup of your system where LR6 was known to be working.

I'm looking through my system for what's 32-bit, because if I ever need to uninstall an application after the Catalina upgrade and the only way is to use a 32-bit uninstaller that will not run, that software needs to be kicked off the Mac before I upgrade to Catalina.

What does this mean? Will I not be able to print with my Epson 3880 if I upgrade to Catalina?

Epson has a driver for the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 that supposedly works with all of the versions of macOS from 10.6 (Snow Leopard) through 10.15 (Catalina).

Epson Stylus Pro 3880 – Printer Driver v10.33

There is also this Catalina support statement on Epson's site.

Epson has appeared to be slow to react to the Mac OS change to 64 bit, but they have been at work after all. The previous versions of Epson software have been 32 bit, which is not supported in Catalina.

I use an Epson scanner for work purposes, and I noticed that yesterday when Catalina became available, that there was n new 64 bit version of Epson scan, called Epson Scan 2

This works on Catalina.

I looked at the website for Epson 3880 and there seems to be new Epson drivers and software for Catalina. I think your device should be fine. I cannot be certain as I don't have that printer.

the usb installer. It should be Catalina but turned out Mojave???????

If you downloaded an installer application with a name like "Install macOS Catalina" and running it produced a Mojave installation, then Apple posted the wrong thing. There is little you can do except to contact them / wait for them to post a new installer, grab that one, and hope that it is for Catalina.

I have made and used a USB bootable installer, using the Catalina installer downloaded from the App Store and it installed Catalina. Apple have not made a mistake.

I downloaded Catalina yesterday and have had no problems with Adobe CC Bridge and Photoshop.  I print from Photoshop to an Epson 3880 printer which is responding as usual but the generic Epson icc printing profiles previously included in the Epson driver software are no longer available in the printing driver dialogue box. These generic icc profiles are neither present in the file Macintosh HD > Library > ColorSync > Profiles nor in the file User > Library > ColorSync > Profiles. However, the bespoke icc printing profiles which I created have been incorporated into Catalina from Mojave and are accessible from the Epson printer driver.

In addition, I had some work to do with Audiobooks which had been moved from iTunes to the Books app.

Re: Catalina anyone?

I checked the USB installer on a Hacintosh and it's Catalina but Mojave installer shows up on my 2018 MBP instead! Puzzling…
