Boomanbb: With everyone complaining about anything Adobe, how the heck do they stay in business? Oh, yeah... Best editing tools out there.

I believe that Adobe used more than just the interface and workflow from RS. If I am not mistaken, some of the adjustments such as Clarity, came from Pixmantec.

Actually, Don, people were using something called Raw Shooter that was great. The conversion engine of RS was bought by Adobe and put into LR, so many of the early LR users were former Raw Shooter users who got a big discount (maybe even free, I don't remember exactly) on LR 1. That's how they "fell" for LR.

M. Mitchell: Did they put back auto eject? I can't find it.

Yes, it's in the same spot. You need to put a card in to see it.

amazme1: Can't one of you smart people provide the 6.3 link for non-cc users?

Follow the link in the article above "Read more on Adobe's website" and scroll to the bottom just before the comments. Links to the Win and Mac versions are there.

Apparently finding it by going to Adobe's website is nearly impossible. They want you to convert to CC.

babart: Apparently it's easy to get rid of the extra import screen, courtesy of a DPR respondent in France: "I turned off the 'Show "Add Photos" screen' option in Edit -> Preferences and everything seems to be back to normal."

I can't verify that as I went back to LR 6.1.1, and I also can't verify if that fixes any of the other problems with the 6.2 update.

Yes, it does eliminate the extra screen, but it did not fix my problem with Synchronize Folders so I rolled back to 6.1.

FantasticMrFox: So a company made some changes to a program that it thought users would appreciate, but they didn't, and there were a couple of bugs which got fixed pretty quickly.

Seems a bit like all the über-angry comments are a bit disproportionate.

Sorry Fantastic but it's not that simple. First, whatever bug they fixed was not the major issue since most are reporting that their problems still exist. Second, with the changes in Import which they have not yet said will be rolled back or fixed, they introduced, as Stu pointed out, a number of bugs in functions that use Import such as Synchronize Folders. Both the 6.2 release and the 6.2.1 "fix" are major fails which removed functionality and introduced numerous bugs.

richardkra: Just give me back PicasaWeb.

Thanks, Stig. I have been accessing it there too and do see my albums added via Google+. However, some of the functions such as Share now take you back to Google+. It was so simple and strraightforward, and I too am concerned that they will now eliminate it completely.

(unknown member): Canon and Nikon don't make a full range of serious APS-C lenses so they will force you sooner or later to go FF. A reason never to buy into CaNikon APS-C dSLR's. With Pentax, Fujifilm, Panasonic and Olympus you know that they are committed to the sensor-size you buy and will develop lenses for it.

I love my Canon 400mm f5.6 on my 70D. Are you saying that I shouldn't be using it on an APs-C camera because it is a "FF lens?"
