  • I've just tested this and LR did a pretty good job of merging each bracket as HDR, then merging those HDR results further to produce a pano. This last retains some overall quasi-Raw adjustability, ...
  • I have PS CC (19) on Windows, and for me the Relative checkbox is sticky within a given session of using the program, including between different documents. But it always resets to un-checked if PS ...
  • Replied in well
    You'll certainly get a lot more web hits now, on 'New Year's Resolution' even searching within the UK; though that's not at all the usage I personally grew up with (I'm in my mid 50s) and is not ...
  • Language is a matter of usage and of group convention. These usages differ in different countries, for example, though also between people of different backgrounds. Newspapers have style ...
  • Apparently many do. I've also seen a lot of people advocating heavy usage of Highlights and Shadows, as a default first step (across the board, pretty much). Somewhat like the way people used to ...
  • The colour space etc shown, are output options only. And these only show when you use the Import Filter version of ACR (where the lower right button, is "Open"). Not when you use the ACR window on ...
  • One of my very nicest budget buys was a 24mm lens: Pentax A/2.8 (auto aperture, manual focus). Flawless condition, in a hard case. Productive focal length on APS-C (37mm equiv) with lovely optical ...
  • Just to explain what's going on here: The normal Auto button in Basic (as updated for this new LR version) applies various Tone settings to suit an analysis of the image, according to its own ...
  • Voted. This is the best way to encourage Adobe to consider changes in the software: a constructive suggestion, backed up with real world usage examples.
  • There are two ways of paying for a yearly plan : either all at one (prepaid), or else as 12 monthly payments during the year...which you may be thinking of here. Adobe does not sell any monthly plan ...
  • You get a 7 days trial period. Note: this timer starts when you download the software, not when you start using it. To be honest, a week does not sound nearly long enough to me, especially to ...
  • It's a nontrivial skill / talent to have good pictures taken of you . Those who are always behind the camera, may remain quite inexperienced or unskilled at being in front of it... unused to and ...
  • It doesn't let you turn it off when it is compulsory, but it does when it is optional. Does that help? :D To clarify: it's the camera manufacturer, not Adobe, who decides whether corrections should ...
  • This works too - sometimes you just want to resize directly in the file browser environment, without using any separate program to do so: Resizer-for-Windows-Explorer-Shell-Extension
  • At one time the Adobe lens profiling did include a characterisation of lateral CA, and this correction was applied via the profile alongside geometric, and vignetting corrections. So there used to ...
  • I have no personal experience of doing that particular transfer. So others are better placed to comment.
  • No, this will not work. Each Catalog belongs to a given software version. You can convert up to a newer version, but not back-save down to an older version. If you were to write edit metadata out ...
  • Just to reassure: uninstalling Lightroom does not delete your catalog . (But that's no reason not to back it up anyway... :D ) I believe the sequence is to sign out from CC, and then go in again  - ...
  • Good point. I guess that's what people send out to e.g. SilverEfex for.
  • Sorry, I phrased that badly. I meant, once you can target the NR more closely, there is less occasion to wish to apply MORE grain locally, as a corrective for having excessive NR apparent in those ...
