freediverx: "Flickr loyalists had hoped that Yahoo's then-new CEO Melissa Mayer would be able to 'make Flickr awesome again"

Anyone who had any faith in Yahoo or Marissa Mayer should have their head examined. She's as bad as Carly Fiorina.

@Stefano I'm glad you found it helpful :)

"flickr can't even give us emoticons for use in the comments."
While Flickr doesn't have their own emojis, you can find them on simple websites like this one: https://www.emojicopy.com/. Select and copy the ones you like, then paste into your Flickr comments or even here: 📷 😀Good luck! 🖐️

kociasek: I get the impression that these images accompany their captions rather than vice versa. Apparently winning photographs don't have to be visually outstanding, they just need to be convincingly "explained" in writing.

No problem, Don, I will repeat my reply to you here, as well:
"You don't get it, I'm not talking about the subject matter but about the visual quality (light, composition, colors, tonality etc.), which is underwhelming here. I'm OK with any stories as long as they are supported by top quality images. For Goddess's sake, they had 320K submissions to choose from!"

citrate: So many angry people here.

I see here mostly trolls and measurbators hoping for a flame war - some even keep repeating (or copy-pasting) the same text.

kociasek: "Such and such phone' has the best camera, should I buy it?"
No, save your money for a dedicated camera. That's the kind of answer I would expect from a real photographer.

Agreed, Alex, a bigger, more capable camera is nicely supplemented by a smaller one that you can take anywhere. But there are much better pocketable cameras than smartphones (in terms of image quality, features, and shooting experience). That's why I have both a DSLR and a small mirrorless. Oh yeah, and a smartphone, whose camera I use about once or twice a month.

Barney, is this really the end of interviews from CP +1018? What about Nikon, this company is conspicuously missing from your series of talks :-(

RussQ: Update on crashing: Seems to have stopped now that I use the 'list' view in the profile browser rather than the grid view. Profiles preview directly in the main view, so the small previous isn't necessary.

@sirhawkeye64
We already discussed that in another thread yesterday. Uninstall/reinstall didn't help. I've got the latest Windows update.

kociasek: Warning to you all – the new version of LR CC may corrupt your database!
Every time I opened the new version of Lightroom CC, my computer crashed within a couple of minutes (rebooted without a single warning). I'm on Windows 10 (64-bit). After the latest crash I can’t even open my LR catalog. I get the dialog box that it “cannot be opened because another application already has it opened”, which is not true and doesn’t change even after I restart the operating system.

Yes, my version is same as yours (1709).

Hausner85: Disclaimer. Update is nice but now my Lightroom classic has become very unstable. Crashes every few minutes.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions, I really appreciate it. I have reported my problem on the Adobe forums, where some other users also complain that the new Classic crashes on them (without rebooting, however). If they are unable to help, I might turn to tomshardware.

Yeah, I tried it but no change. Thanks, anyway.

Doesn't work for me, just tried it. The new Classic keeps rebooting my PC :-(

As I have written above, I already tried complete uninstall and re-installation, among other things. Also, I don't use a separate antivirus, only the built-in Windows Defender.

Thanks for your reply. What do you mean by "repairing the install"? Adobe provides no such option for LC Classic, you can only uninstall it or install another version.

Terrible update!!! A short time after I start the new version of Classic, it reboots my PC (Windows 10, 64-bit). I've tried everything to fix this: cleared photo and video caches, switched off video card acceleration, completely uninstalled and reinstalled LR Classic - still no good. The only thing that restores stability is roll back to previous version (7.2). Thanks for nothing, Adobe!

@D200_4me @Skyscape
No, it's definitely caused by the latest version (7.3) of LR Classic CC. Count yourself lucky if that doesn't happen to you but many other users have the same problem as I do: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2473488
Once I rolled back to previous version, the crashes stopped. Now I updated again, it crashes again (reboots the whole PC a minute or so after I start LR).
BTW, I discovered why it wouldn't open at all (see my post above) - it created two files ".lrcat.lock" and ".lrcat-wal" next to ".lrcat". that had to be deleted.

I meant Lightroom Classic CC, sorry for mixing up the names!

kociasek: DPReview, check your information, please! Zay's image is still listed among the contest winners on the Skypixel website so there is no evidence it has being disqualified. Only he says so to PetaPixel.

OK, they finally removed the image from the contest winners page. The second place in this category was promoted to first place.
