  • I don’t think I can add ram in my current model,  anytime I am working in lightroom I have no other applications open except lightroom, it isnt slow I am just wondering if I can speed it up a ...

  • Created discussion thread LR Classic CC optimization
    Right now I’m running Lightroom on my 21.5” Retina iMac. Will there be an increase in performance if I run my photos, catalogs, and previews from an external SSD connected through the USB-C port, ...
  • Okay, that’s more comforting. My comment was in reply to the authors prediction of the eventual elimination of the classic version. So your saying if this happens, you can still use Lightroom cc...

  • I am an adobe subscriber but I only use Lightroom classic cc. I have zero interest in having to upload my pictures to a cloud before editing them. What if I want to edit my pictures when I don’t...

  • Created discussion thread Sigma 16 1.4 large file sizes after PP
    The JPEG file sizes are 35MB+ after post processing RAW files taken of highly detailed trees with my Sigma 16 on my a6000. The raw files were about 24 mb before processing as usual, but afterwards ...
  • Also if you want zero noise low light images try bracketing your exposures. I’ve noticed that when I take three exposures (-2,0,+2) and merge them to hdr in Lightroom then post process, rather ...
  • I understand now sunstars are created and their characteristics. My dilemma is that I like to use certain lenses for my landscapes that don’t create good looking sunstars until f18-f22. So I was ...
  • I figured you could just combine the HDRs using photo merge to hdr in Lightroom, then take those images with the increased dynamic range and use photo merge panorama to stitch them into the ...
  • Created discussion thread Sunstars with crisp detail
    Is the best way to create an image with a sunstar yet with maximum resolution to do the following: Take picture at sweet spot of lens or whatever aperature it requires to get everything sharp and ...
  • Created discussion thread Focus stacked, HDR, Panorama.
    Id love to see some examples of landscapes combining Focus Stacking, bracketed exposures, and multiple image panorama stitching. Anybody have any? This was one of my goals on my current trip to ...
  • All around lens. My landscapes are mostly taken on multi week backpacking trips so I prefer to only carry one lens with me and not have to change lenses. I need wide angle and telephoto in an all ...
  • Thank you all for the replies. The only thing that sketches me about the 42mp images are is that I don’t know if my computer will be able to handle the files as smoothly as the 24mp images. I have ...
  • I wouldn’t use the 24-105 on my A6000, I would purchase it to go alongside the A7III.
  • Final output is large prints. Usually 16x24 or 20x30.
  • Created discussion thread Considering A7III with 24-105
    I shoot mainly landscapes with my A6000 and 18-135, always shooting RAW, ISO100, and either F5.6-F8. I'm on a tripod if the shutter speed is too low. What improvements can I expect with the A7III ...
  • I have, I actually have a Pedco Ultrapod, Trailpix, and a sturdy full size tripod. I was just wondering what all options were in the 2lb range if I decided to bring something a little better than ...
  • Created discussion thread Recommend me a tripod under 2 lbs
    Looking for a tripod under 2 lbs that isn’t too expensive for backpacking. I would prefer one that folds down small and has a ball head included. Right now I’m looking at the Sirui T-005KX 52" ...
  • Sweet. I’ve been wanting to see some large metal prints in person and I’ll be in Tahoe city next week, I’ll definitely stop by there. Are the photos mostly landscape?
  • It’s actually pretty good, but is nowhere near as versatile as a dedicated tripod. I used it recently on a multi week backpacking trip in the mountains and was happy with it.
