  • I'm certainly not going to follow 4 forums instead of one, so I probably won't be back much.   I don't even see a way to easily find my "favorite" forums. 1) How to do something and the things you ...
  • No, I really don't see the issue.  If you don't want to read a thread for goodness sakes don't open it.  The change in Adobe software is very very important for many of us doing "retouching".  It ...
  • I doubt very much if I would visit a PC talk or Mac talk forum because gee virtually all of my tools will work on either one and I would imagine few questions are related to the platform.  And if ...
  • If that is the subject of the forum, I agree.  Post processing. To me "retouching" is just fixing up, especially portraits and the like to smooth skin etc.  Color correction, levels, removing spots.
  • Only photoshop? Then I guess new forums will have to be created... But I don't like multiple forums. How about Lightroom? What about Plug-ins? And did someone provide a definition of "retouching"?  ...
  • I use two:  Topaz Denoise and Nik's Dfine.  (as well as LR's noise sliders). I've discovered that different cameras have different type of noise.  With my previous camera Denoise worked better but ...
  • The professionals and trainers I follow don't just use Photoshop bare...  Once you allow in plug-ins, you might as well allow in other programs.    I guess that forum would be useful, but it sure ...
  • Looks like we need a definition of "retouching". PC and Mac forums for software have been suggested, but really, almost without exception we use the same tools on PCs and Macs so I don't know why ...
  • I guess I got lost.  How do you do retouching without software?  You mean make it a place to just show off photos without a discussion of how it was done?  Or discussion of software only with an ...

  • Created discussion thread Luminar on Windows
    I installed the beta, but don't care for it as a standalone at this point.  I see it is supposed to be a PS plugin, but I can't find that feature in the Windows version.   They want me to buy it ...
  • Sticking with LR6 standalone for now.  I'm on Windows so I think I can keep it working for the foreseeable future, along with PS CS6 and MetaRaw.  I have old, even ancient by software standards, ...
  • It works properly for me and I've commented on the steps I use, so no more of that.  I certainly have location GPS data in the files.  To get the location FIELDS filled in in LR you need another ...
  • We have no idea that Elements will continue to be sold as standalone (or at all).  Its cataloging features are not nearly as advanced as LR and no one with a big catalog should consider it as an ...
  • I've learned, and had confirmed by these threads, that many/most users of LR do not take advantage of its advanced features.  Those people might be happy with those solutions.
  • Are you sure the phone is transferring to the camera?  I've not done it that many times and each time I seem to have to futz around because I'm not sure what to do next.  But when you DO get it ...
  • I got a bit confused getting oi.share set up, but now that it is set up it's working fine. I much prefer in-camera GPS I had with my Sony camera, but that hardly exists now.  I forget to set  it ...
  • Good point. Well, yes.  We want what we had.  If we wanted to start over we would.  If we hadn't liked the excess blue, then we would adjust the color.
  • I've edited lots of files that aren't keepers in any sense and I don't want to give up those edits either...   So I will have to eventually export them all.   Which, to be honest, is not more ...
  • Yes, of course we will keep our original files, but not necessarily want to start again with the original.   I have some images that I have been unable to reproduce the effect I did the first time ...
