Simon Garrett's recent activity

  • You (IMHO) are making incorrect comments that do not undermine my comments. That's why I suggest we leave it and agree to disagree. Neither of us have the internal Adobe information to prove what's ...
  • Can you explain that? How can they render the image without opening it and reading it into memory? Agreed. It can be for any image in PS also. And in applying the edit it alters a representation in ...
  • I disagree with much of what you've said above. There are so many differences between my understanding and yours of how software image editors work that I suggest we leave it there.
  • That's something different again! LR, like PS and any other editor, has an in-memory version of the image, whose pixels are changed by several steps, including: (1) Converting the raw image into an RGB ...
  • PS: (1) changes pixels in the image in memory as you edit, (2) and when you click Save (or Save As) then those altered pixels are written to the file ...
  • I notice new releases today of LR and ACR. If what you're describing is a bug, maybe check if these new releases make a difference, or is the new release what you're talking about anyway?
  • The cleanup I mentioned is not defrag, merely deleting what the system finds as unnecessary files. In W10, defrag is not normally necessary as Windows does any defrag automatically.  By default it ...
  • I quite agree wbout WindDirStat, but note that it can't identify space usage of folders to which there is no user access, and so when used on system folders (or the whole C drive) it tends to ...
  • Are you using Win 10? Take care, both those links you quote are old and predate Win 10. On two of my machines I've just checked, the blobs.bin file is small (10M).  I think W10 housekeeping manages it.
  • If/when I decide to leave LR/PS (I subscribe to the CC package): (1) LR will continue to work in Library module, so I'll export developed images.
  • Windows 10 seems to me much better than W7 at keeping itself clean, so I think there is less often need for a complete clean re-install.  However, if you decide on that, remember the obvious things: (1) ...
  • Ah, yes!  That would explain it.
  • OK, probably worth looking anyway. I can't comment on the Lenovo models you mentioned, but I have the XPS 15 - same spec as yours but last years (9560 model) which has the same screen but 7th gen ...
  • Just within the last week (that is, on the front page of this forum) there have been around 10 threads about choosing laptops, some of them mentioning the same laptops and asking the same ...
  • Or if you don't, just close the image in PS (leave PS open) and "edit in PS" from LR again.
  • I think they mean accuracy before calibration/profiling (or without colour-managed software).  Most of the reviews are about using the monitor for TV or video, not for photography. It's hard to ...
  • The links I have for the Google version (and the original Nik version) now redirect to DxO.  I tried some Googling and looking for cached versions of pages, but they all eventually reached either ...
  • As dj_paige says, make sure you let LR back up the catalog regularly (Edit menu -> Catalog settings -> General tab, and I choose for Backup "once a week on exiting Lightroom" or "When Lightroom ...
  • I wondered if you could do it after removing the first version?  Or maybe log out of Adobe, log in with the new ID?  Not sure about that, just a thought...
  • As dl_paige says, if you want to export to jpeg or tiff and save the folder structure then Jeffrey Friedl's folder publisher plug-in is just the job.  Slightly fiddly to set up (because of ...
