  • Catalogs can definitely get corrupted and you wouldn't be the first one. It's indeed a much better idea to let Lightroom frequently make a catalog backup, however. Remember that XMP does not contain ...
  • Both is possible. You set that in the ACR preferences. Yes, in the preferences - metadata tab, check 'Automatically write changes to XMP'.
  • I'm pretty sure that Aperture can apply LZW-compression to exported TIFFs, so check that in the preset and change it if nessecary. That will reduce the file size considerably (50% on average).
  • Yes, I meant you choose the 'original' picture. OK, that does make a difference because that means both JPEGs were generated independently, from a RAW file. In that case the more contrasty picture ...
  • Raw (NEF) files have only one color per pixel, so even if your NEF was 16 bits/color, it would only be 16 bits per pixel. TIFF files (and any other RGB file type) contains 8 or 16 bits per color, ...
  • A little late reaction, because I was on the road. I would choose photo A, because photo B is just an edited version of A if I understood you correctly. That means that B can never be a better ...
  • Learn about the power of collections and smart collections. These are a kind of virtual folders. If you understand how to use them, you will also understand that the physical folder structure is ...
  • It matters very little, and I wouldn't want to use a jpeg for 'serious raw-like editing' anyway. Both histograms show no clipping, so in both photos the tonal values are there. I would probably ...
  • It all depends on what exactly you did. If you only moved entire folder hierarchies (folders and subfolders) around, you shouldn't have to relink 517 times. Just relink the top folder in a folder ...
  • A smart preview is 2540 pixels wide.
  • What I think he means is that you don't have to do all this if you use Lightroom's panorama stitching or HDR merge, and you do have to take all these steps if you use an external application. He ...
  • People often think that, but in reality it never works for long. Ever heard of Quark? Quark XPress owned the publishing world, virtually every magazine and book was produced in XPress. Their only ...
  • No, that is illogical. If and when Lr7 comes out, it will probably be identical with LrCC at that moment . And from that moment onwards the same thing will happen that happened with Lr6 and LrCC: ...
  • No, it's only (more than just) a hint that you don't understand the difference between the subscription model and the perpetual license. If you take the subscription, you'll get new features as ...
  • Adobe never talks about future products, so that is no indication whatsoever. Photoshop CC was never released as subscription and perpetual license, so what happened with Photoshop CC is also not ...
  • I'm a little surprised that you thought it was that easy. I thought you really were going to hack the database structure, record by record. This is not 'hacking' anything, it's just changing the ...
  • I did read that, but I doubt you would even get that far. As I said, even Adobe can sometimes not repair a corrupted catalog, and that is a catalog that is not 'hacked' to make it readable for an ...
  • Importing images with sidecars should indeed not cause any problem. Any line in the sidecar file that isn't recognized by LR5 will simply be ignored. The LR5 catalog will indeed be updated with ...
  • You would probably create a mess. The difference between a LRCC catalog and a LR5 catalog is not only some edits like 'Dehaze', but also several items on the library side like face recognition.
  • I agree with that when it concerns the difference between the original image and the first time you open the jpeg. However, the second time that difference is already minimal, if existing at all ...
