  • On my desktop where I have both then no, I never use Lightroom CC. However, I do use it a lot on my Iphone 8. Fiddly yes but you kind of get the hang of it after a while.
  • The only "useful" data in the catalog that is not stored in the xmp files is the edit history and (I believe) flags (picks, and rejects). Your actual final edits, keywords etc will all be stored ...
  • Replied in There aren't any
    The one thing you can be sure of after reading the thousands of similar posts from LR "would be jump shippers" is that there ain't nothing that comes even close.
  • I am using it more and more ! Like you my main work is done on LR Classic. Photos taken with my DSLR are downloaded to my desktop from my camera without using LR mobile. However, for my phone ...
  • I am talking about RAW files. YOU go back and read my first post.
  • I don't think it is semantics. I think it is a question of using the terminology correctly. In the film days did you send off the roll of film for developing or post processing ? I rest my case. Th ...
  • You can't keep a RAW photo untouched, well you can but an untouched RAW file is just a file full of data. You cant see it. You can only see it once you have developed it.
  • Replied in 2 things to say
    1. I do not process photos. I digitally develop my RAW files into viewable photos using Lightroom. I am only doing what I used to let my camera do but with LR I have much more control and I don't ...
  • This forum is my favourite forum. Unfortunately it is wrongly named. You are correct that I don't do any photo re-touching. I only do RAW development and DAM work. Even if I am completely wrong on ...
  • I started out using Photoshop and converted to LR when it first came on the market around 10 years ago. I have used LR ever since. In my opinion Photoshop is over-kill for every day RAW development ...
  • You're options are ever diminishing. As time goes by all the good software will go the way of subscription. Those that don't wont be worth having. Take the plunge with LR Classic and give it a try ...
  • No! LR Classic will be around for a while, certainly until LR CC is up to speed. If the time does eventually come when they decide to phase out LR Classic in favour of LR CC there will be plenty of ...
  • I have been using LR since it first came out around 10 yrs ago. There are many different possible workflows. None are right or wrong. Some take longer than others and some are more complicated. ...
  • It depends whether you mean RAW development into finished Jpegs or the editing of already created Jpegs. If you are shooting RAW then you will always have to do something. That something may be as ...
  • Replied in LR vs ...
    Your header really says it all.
  • I previously went on record to object to the category rename (at the time) to Retouching. I use LR and have 60,000 + photos in my catalogue but I don't do any retouching at all. What I do is RAW ...
  • Perhaps there should be a separate Forum to discuss whether separate Forums should be introduced.
  • Thanks for the moral support ! I think you must dislike ITunes even more than me. I could not agree more about the poor interface and ambiguous instructions. I once lost all my contacts because I ...
  • I do the same but with Canon I only have one bag I only have 1 card (yes I know... you don't need to tell me :-D) Ha. I relate to this one because this is exactly how I used LR when I started with ...
  • After a recent cleanish install of win 10 pro all my Apple related installations were uninstalled and as a consequence my PC wouldn't speak to my phone. So I reinstalled ITunes and there is now ...
