  • Replied in Sticky cursor
    Do you mean the mouse cursor? If the cursor "sticks" from time to time it's often a sign that some i/o device driver (or something else that can run in kernal mode) is hogging the cpu. Another ...
  • Really hard to say.  With modern Intel processors, the power consumption varies enormously between 100% load on all cores and 0%.  As an example: if you are running PS, but most of the time you're ...
  • I don't know about CS6.  I have the CC plan and the latest PS and LR are fine, don't know about earlier versions.
  • With TN displays, the colour tends to vary with viewing angle, and even over the range of viewing angles for someone sitting in front of a laptop, the colour characteristics often change somewhat. ...
  • I have an XPS 15 and I went for the 4K display, and I'm very impressed with it. Of course, on a 15 inch 4K display, the pixels are too small to see, but that doesn't mean 4K is of no benefit.  ...
  • Understood, thanks.
  • Thanks for that.  I thought a friend had told me that there was an option to colour-manage in FastStone, but I probably misheard him.
  • Windows 10 Photos App isn't colour-managed.  Photoshop and the older Windows photo viewer are colour managed, FastStone can be, but I think by default it's not - you have to set some option. If the ...
  • If only!  Software that isn't colour managed doesn't make any assumption about the colour space.  It sends the pixel data unaltered to the monitor.  Unless the monitor just happens to have an ...
  • You might find it will offer to provide you access if you double-click the folder, or right-click and go to properties and security.  However, there be dragons.  Alter ownership and the rightful ...
  • Vivaldi is fully colour managed, as are Firefox, Chrome and Safari. IE and Edge are partly colour managed. Vivaldi is IMHO the best out-of-the-box browser for wide-gamut monitors, as it ...
  • Brief version: (1) The new "Lightroom Classic CC" is the equivalent of the old Lightroom CC (or Lightroom 6).  My suggestion: this is the one you should be using.
  • The apparent sum of the sizes of files on a C drive doesn't add up to the total used! This is because some folders have permissions that mean they are not visible even to administrators. For ...
  • The Retouching forum is probably a better place to look (or ask).  There are at least 4 threads about On1 on the first page, all with posts in the last 24 hours.
  • What features of W10 Pro do you want?
  • I'm not quite sure what you mean.  I did "take the time to learn about it".  It's a show-stopper for me because my Internet connection is too slow (5 Mbit) to make syncing large libraries and ...
  • I agree with all you say, and I intend to stay with the LR/PS package for the time being. However, it's not clear to me that the existing LR (i.e. "Classic") will continue to be enhanced in the ...
  • In graphics power that's overkill for photography, but no harm in that (other than it costs a bit more). A more important issue is the monitor connections.  For future-proofing, two Display Port ...
  • How do you turn off the monitor profile? By removing it in Control Panel -> Colour Management? LR checks the monitor profile only when it first starts. So if there is no profile set as default for ...
