  • There is a thread here on this topic already: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4613880 Can I use LR Mobile on iPad for light photo editing and backup Does it answer your question?
  • As you are discovering, the iPad is not a replacement for a laptop.  Many things are much harder on an iPad, and sometimes not possible at all.  That is unfortunate and hopefully will change as ...
  • Ahh!  Now I see it!  I think my mind originally ‘saw’ the line through the nose of the board as part of the design of the board.  But now that I see it correctly for what it is, I can’t help ...
  • I’m looking at this on my iPad 12.9 M1 and I don’t see any vertical lines.  I click on it to see the large version, but still looks fine.  I am wondering if you posted the file you intended, or if ...
  • I’m wondering what the gotcha is when using the smart sharpen filter?  Please let us know.
  • Based on reported experience here with the M1 MBA and MBP, (supported by my own experience with an iPad M1 Pro 12.9), any of the options you quote will be fine.  If you want to avoid wondering if ...
  • Well I went whole hog and ordered a 16” M1Max with 64GB RAM and 4TB SSD.  It will be a replacement for my current desktop which is a Mac Mini 2014 with 2 cores and integrated graphics.  I’m ...
  • Keeping the photo files on an external HDD is what most of here do.  I have over 100,000 files and us an external LaCie for that.  It doesn’t slow anything down in the slightest.  (If you are ...
  • I like iPads and own the best of them, but no iPad can provide what you have on the iMac: specifically a large screen, ability to manage external drives, printers etc.  And much of the software ...
  • I have a 2014 Mini and an M1 iPad Pro.  The Mini has all the features I take for granted in the latest MacOS, but lacks processing power.  The iPad has loads of power, but lacks features in ...
  • Replied in Apple 27 iMac
    Given that absolutely any computer in the Apple line up will be very much more powerful than your iMac, you may want to consider whether you still need a desk top at all.  For still photographers ...
  • I have an iPad Pro 9.6 (mid 2016) with pencil and keyboard, and an ipad 12.9 Pro M1 with 16GB, 1TB, and keyboard and pencil.  I do my main editing on a Mini with two displays.  I like the iPads, ...
  • It’s not clear what exactly you are doing, as others have indicated.  I think you could rethink your strategy and come up with something simpler.  This is mine: I keep the LR catalog file (only ...
  • Replied in Where…?
    I doubt if you need any kind of RAID system.  Those are primarily required for very high speed together with large capacity (RAID 0) or to ensure never loosing access to data at any time (RAID1), ...
  • You will find most people here store the original picture files from the camera on an external HDD as this is the biggest space hog and does not need fast interfaces.  But, they also keep the LR ...
  • Replied in This one.
    Thanks for the feedback.  Then I think I would need to see it actually running Lightroom – or just get an iMac 😏.
  • Replied in This one.
    At the risk of being pedantic then, you would strongly NOT recommend the EIZO Color Edge CS2740 which seems specifically aimed at photographers?  I ask because I was considering this display ...
  • Replied in This one.
    Would these problems apply to the new 24” iMac which has a 4.5K display?
  • My purely one case, anecdotal evidence:  I run Time Machine on one 4TB HDD with a USB2 interface.  The drive is a LaCie and is about 7 years old, having been recently re-purposed for TM duties. ...
  • So the 11” M1 iPad Pro gets ~57% of the life of the M1 Air and has a battery ~57% of the capacity?  So would that not suggest they are running at the same speed?  What did I miss? And the 13” ...
