  • Models needing make up is no different from photos requiring touch up :-P So pot should not call kettle black.
  • Good communication skill is being able to understand what is not being said. Replies here so far have outlined what options you have.
  • I have 2x 7-yr old laptops running Windows 7. Never udpated them since 2012. Runs fine, never got any virus. Couple of applications wanted latest .NET version, which I downloaded and worked fine. I ...
  • Why bother upgrading to Win 10? Win 7 works fine and latest is not always best. You don't have to keep on upgrading your OS.
  • There could be several reasons. 1. The photographs could be average - so may not go well with eloquent replies posted in the threads :-D 2. Some photographers host their photos in personal website ...
  • Technically, all the above can be achieved with a decent smartphone. However, if you want to make a statement with an expensive camera gear, buy whatever you want :-D
  • Created discussion thread Opening photos from a given file list
    I want to browse thru a set of images. The full path of those images are in a text file. All I want is to browse those images only . I know XnView has a feature where it can display images from a list.
  • Nothing is stopping me from carrying on using Lr 5.7 :-) Last few days I played with DigiKam it seems very similar to Lr. Its editing capability is not at par with Lr but Digikam is more of a DAM ...
  • These numbers prove that general public do not do pixel peeping and perfectly happy with their smartphones
  • I am evaluating the alternatives at present. Hope to stop using Lr entirely soon. I have probably used only 10% features of Lr. :-) Also, I used Lr few days every year, usually immediately after ...
  • Because number of people not using Lr > number of people using it :-D AFAIK, xmp works with RAW files only not JPG.
  • Created discussion thread How you can move away from Lr
    In this post I described how I am moving away from Lightroom. This is based on my workflow so I understand not everyone can benefit from this post. However, I believe many of you might find this ...
  • My modes If camera offers panorama mode, just use it :-D If not, use AE lock and then shoot. Stitch them in Image Composite Editor.
  • OK, I have resolved it by some out of the box thinking. My problem was that I was trying to view my shortlisted (e.g. rated 3+ stars) images inside Lr in 1:1 which was slow. What I discovered that ...
  • Most people think their workflow is the best (nothing wrong in that) Then they think same workflow is best for all other people (which is mostly wrong)
  • No, I am only using JPGs. :-) The only way I see to do it if moving those photos to a different folder and generate 1:1 previews of them.
  • Well, that's exactly my frustration! Lr is good for cataloging but frustrating for just viewing photos - too slow and cumbersome for that. So far I was indeed using a different app (FastStone) for ...
  • Then how can I view images in full resolution without having to wait few seconds for each of them? Is there any way to force Lr to read from disk rather than previews?
  • Created discussion thread Improving Lr 1:1 view speed?
    Whenever I try to view phtos in 1:1 mode in Library module it takes few seconds for every photo before it is displayed in full resolution. I believe this is because Lr always reads from previews. G ...
  • I use Panasonic GX800 with 12-32 f/3.5-5.6 kit lens. Any other lens may not be pocketable.
