  • This is much harder than it seems and I've not found a good way other than using a content aware fill into the area. Would also like to know how the experts deal with this common problem.
  • Unless you count dongles  🤨?
  • If you need a DAM and like to do things manually then LR is better. The adjustment brushes are so well developed and unlike many I think LR does a better job at noise reduction than Prime if you ...
  • As you have found there is no really satisfactory workflow involving the iPhone an Lightroom. I use the iPhone for most family and unplanned travel photos. They mainly stay on the phone. I also ...
  • Thank Nigel  that’s really helpful. I didn’t realise just how dark the shadows were in your classic view. Looks like the Rx100m4 would be best then. I’d love to take a full frame SLR but that ...
  • Created discussion thread Best camera to shoot Angkor Wat at dawn
    I’m making a trip up the Mekong in a few weeks. I usually take a Sony RX10M3 and an RX100M4 when I travel but do have Nikon DSLR’s which I usually leave behind. My question is whether the Sony ...
  • Agree. They did have a way to turn it off and on in terminal before. I’m assuming there are no diagnostic POST  beeps anymore either. So not sure why they have been removed.
  • No I googled the question and looked for Apple site answers first. Then when I couldn’t find a straight answer I looked at a few other otherwise reliable sites. I’ve been using DPreview a long time ...
  • Thanks very much  I’ll stop looking now.
  • I discovered that my new Macbook doesn't chime on start up. I have sound turned up full, not muted and speakers whether set as "selected audio device" or "Macbook speakers" does not make the start ...
  • Great article. A must read for anyone with a T2 Mac. Bookmarked for when I forget 👌 Thank you.
  • Right I've tested out mounting a bootable Super duper clone and it won't mount using restart with Option as it did on my 2011 MBPro. Following a restart with CMD R into Recovery mode again won't ...
  • Thank you noirdesir. Looks like a good plan.
  • Thanks Kieks for your interest and help. You have confirmed for me that Jons advice was the way to go. You have said the same. I have just backed up nearly a TB of data to my USB 3.1 Lacie HDD. ...
  • Hi John, I can now see the logic in having only one volume. Superduper won't back up more than one at a time. So I have decided to move my data back into the primary volume and delete the secondary ...
  • John, thanks for your further advice. I haven't partitioned my MBPro. I have two volumes on the APFS Disk. Whereas my LR catalogue is on the first volume the LR  catalogue backup is on the second. ...
  • Thanks JP Albert. See my response to John Bandry as for why I would prefer not to use a clone. I do have super duper but am not sure it will work with my MBPro which has the T 2 security chip.
  • Thank you. See my response to John Bandry re reasons for using double time machine. thank you also for showing me some sort of script I could use. Unfortunately I don’t understand Unix or where to ...
  • Thanks John. I think the time capsule slows down because firstly I take a lot of large raw wildlife images and backup the Lightroom catalogue after each shoot. That’s why I took off the data drive ...
  • Thanks John. its what I feared. The data volume is large and the time capsule slows down so much once it’s included. no problem on the usb 3.1 external hard disc though. maybe I should just use a ...
