  • And that's fine. But some people prefer to look at the real problem and try to advice the correct solution, rather than taking the easy way out. And that's fine too.
  • Replied in SSD
    Agreed and point taken, but for me personally that is no longer an issue. I took my main catalog with me on my laptop during traveling in the past, but I found that the extra time it took to ...
  • Yes, and that is exactly why you normally don't want duplicates. If you want two develop versions of the same original, you'd use a virtual copy. The title of the thread may be that, but if you ...
  • Straightening a horizon resamples the entire image, so I don't see how it would be possible to do losslessly, unless you use a parametric editor like Lightroom. And no, that doesn't mean I say you ...
  • Of course they will still be duplicates, because these will be identical images. A different name doesn't change the image content.
  • Replied in SSD
    Correct. Having everything on one disk is obviously very convenient for backups, but apart from that, there is no compelling reason to store your images on the same disk as your catalog. I bet ...
  • Or not enough thinking. If the OP does that while Lightroom says that the images are already imported, then this will lead to duplicates. If the OP doesn't care, then he should go ahead and do it. ...
  • A very unlikely scenario. Lightroom does more than just look at the file name to determine whether images are the same, so exported images are usually not recognized as being the same as their ...
  • Replied in BTW
    We agree, I just explained why the poster thinks that Adobe said they won't update LR6. That is because he thinks that each point update is a new version. It is not. Assuming there will be another ...
  • Replied in More Gibberish
    The explanation is simple. A 'version' refers to a full version number, not a point update. So Lightroom 6.0, Lightroom 6.5, and Lightroom 6.12 are all the same version: version 6. What Adobe says ...
  • No that is true, I didn't mention that specificly, but I should not have to. Overlapping is very often (at least partly) at less than 100%, because in most cases you won't use a brush with 100% ...
  • It's a very good example, actually. I talked about overlapping brush strokes, and remember that those could have been made with less than 100% opacity . You can't erase 50% opacity overlapping ...
  • All true, but that was not my point. My point was that opening a raw file as a background layer in Photoshop is destructive, so the claim "I do everything non-destructively and can always go back" ...
  • It is if you open the raw image in Photoshop as a smart object.
  • Many people think that as long as you work with layers you work non-destructively. That is not necessarily the case. If you open a RAW file as a normal background layer (and that is what you just ...
  • <snip> As the OP uses reference masters, an Aperture Vault is not a useful solution for him.
  • TIFF saves objects, text, paths, and channels too, besides the pixeldata of each of the layers.
  • No, it's not 'Relocate Originals'. That moves an original to another place (and you don't need that) and so it requires access to the original (and you don't have that because the disk is crashed). ...
  • If you shoot in raw, you don't have to remember to set the WB in the field.
  • Yes, you do need a duplicate of HD1, and as far as I understand, you have that. I didn't say otherwise. What I said is that Aperture doesn't need to know about that duplicate , until it is needed ...
