Trees "live" - so presumably do not count as inaminate

J A C S: Would somebody post a direct update link for LR 6.4? It is well buried on the Adobe site, if it is there. And before you ask - no, update from LR does not work for me.

It doesn't do it direct from LR - Help/Updates will take you into Adobe Creative Cloud and then updates it to either CC or 6.3 from there

lester11: Trying to update desktop (not CC) LR 6.3, it seems the Adobe site forces me to subscribe to CC first. Any clues or links, please, on how to update desktop LR 6.3 to 6.4 without becoming a CC subscriber? Many thanks!

The CC and 6.3 version are the same file for downloading, and when you update, it will transform into the correct version depending on the previous one on your computer. P.S. This is why 3rd party plug-ins for features missing from the standalone version, for example, LR Haze, work

Awaits bug-ridden Lightroom update to coincide with start of conference

VirtualMirage: Now they need to fix the import problem Lightroom has when pulling in photos from the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. For people using the live mode, Lightroom will only import the 3MB movie file and ignores the JPEG file.

What I had to do as a work around was using Windows 8.1's own photo importer, which does import both files. Delete the movies, then import the photos. If the movies and photos reside in the same folder then Lightroom will still see just the movie file and import just that.

A quick look through the Retouching Forum will tell you to steer clear of LR6.2 (and the CC equivalent) update - major problems

Is the company's name Heath Robinson by any chance?

TORN: No, haze removal is NOT part of Lightroom, it is part of Lightroom CC only because Adobe makes all users of the stand alone version of Lightroom second class users only. Yeah, Adobe give it straight to our face that even Elements users range aboube us cloud-denyers. No strategy to make friends.

You can even get the slider with this plugin:

"All images must have a title on border (See sample)."

Given the winner, and many other entries, of your last challenge infringed this rule, can it be ignored?

estero: Must the "Title" must be on the border as specified in the rules or can it be in the picture?

Given the winner, and many other entries, has ignored the rule - suggest it doesn't matter

On article Samsung introduces PM1633a, world's first 2.5" 16TB SSD (119 comments in total)

Let's hope Samsung have sorted out the problems they had with their SSDs, where performance dropped dramatically as time passed. A firmware patch last Autumn didn't cure the problem permanently, and they had another go in the Spring this year. There seems to be doubts over their use of NAND technology - slow performance with a 16TB unit will be fun!

On challenge Landscape with a road (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

RJB138: Quick Clarification Please:

"one single road"? So is a road with one width of pavement, i.e. a "two lane" road with stripe down the middle acceptable?

Also do white/yellow lining and/or "Armco" crash barriers count as human artifacts?

Nice to see DPR catching up with the news:

Thanks, everybody.

It is sometimes worthwhile getting up early.

The Dordogne river region of France gives some stunning photographic opportunities
