  • Yeah, I appreciate that. FWIW, syncing between the Lightroom versions has it's own set of problems too, and isn't as straight forward as you'd expect.
  • I think the description isn't too helpful. As I've understood it, it uploads all images to your iCloud, and only removes locally stored images if you select the 'Optimise Storage' option. ...
  • Except the OP question is regarding Photos. :-/
  • Erm, that's what they actually did do. You had Lightroom V6 and Lightroom CC, which were essentially the same app, but with V6 being the last standalone licence version, and CC being the cloud ...
  • Not necessarily. It *might* allow readability of newer Raw formats, but the software may not be able to decipher the data stored in it to apply base Raw development settings (as DNGs still have ...

    I'm happy for you, and fully understand. The point is, YMMV always applies :-).

    That's kind of my point. For the more modest user, maybe the typical 'hobbyist', I think Mylio does not present particularly good value fore the features on offer. For now I'm very unlikely to ...

    Fully understand that. Although I'm not likely to get to that size of library within the next couple of decades. Maybe, it's definitely a daunting prospect having to start all over again. I know ...

    I keep looking at Mylio, but for the cost, with no cloud storage options included, it just looks like poor value to me. For the same payment options as Lightroom is, Mylio costs the same per month ...
  • I agree, the appearance and operation difference between Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC is significant. I think it'll be V6, as I think that's when they started calling it CC if you subscribed ...
  • It must not be edited at all in Photos first (not even any cropping etc.), you must send an unedited version. I wasn't aware you could send to Lightroom though, I thought it had to be an ...
  • It's easy but laborious. You have to go into Edit mode, and select the Image menu, and then 'Use Raw as Original'. Sadly there's no batch process for this, and you have to do this for each image ...
  • I have a similar system running in parallel with my Lightroom library. Although I use a simply date based system. It can be quite easy to browse it all using something like Finder, Graphic ...
  • I must admit that I'd never been aware of the sine wave issue until this thread, and I read a lot of reviews before buying a UPS. In fact at the time most discussions were about faulty units ...
  • Oh I do. Even reading through the Adobe forums it's clear it causes a lot of confusion, even the Adobe support guys aren't always sure what version is being talked about. Many of the discussions ...

    I do somewhat agree with what you say, but forgetting the 'value' part, it's the whole marketing strategy they employ that's really beginning to grate with me. They make a big thing about ...
  • You haven't read much of my original posting then. I don't need to download anything, it's already duplicated in the original Lightroom 'Classic' CC folder structure on a separate hard drive. I ...
  • If you could easily find all that other information out, I'm sure you would have noticed the details on the purchasing page. Besides, it's not been marketed on the site as LR7.
  • Created discussion thread Luminar news
    Well, a new announcement now: https://community.skylum.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360022338711-September-DAM-Update It's been 'Early 2018' when I bought and paid for it, then it was going to be ...
  • That says: 'Please enter one or more search terms in the search box above.' That's just the legal bits, which doesn't answer any of the questions I had. I am interested in what actually happens to ...
