  • I feel that knowing 5% is pretty good! I can somehow manage to do the things that need to be done. I admit that most of my work is done in Lightroom now, only jumping over to PS when LR doesn't ...
  • I have been using Photoshop since version 2.5 back in the mid-1990s. I used to claim to have learned 20% of it, but with all the new features I think I am down closer to 5%. :)
  • You do not have to agree with the critiques, but you should listen well to them. Deciding for yourself which ones are valid, positive comments and which are not teaches you to understand what ...
  • I haven't tested any of the Open Office variants for a while, but they used to have difficulties with macros. And it was totally incompatible with Access code. I don't remember if it supported VBA ...
  • I, too, still use Office XP SP3. It included everything listed above plus Access, which has since become a VERY expensive separate package.  The format converter add-in from Microsoft means that I ...
  • If you are using Windows, the built-in Paint or Paint 3D does that stuff easily. Right-click on the picture and Open With....
  • If you cancel your LR subscription, you can continue to use the Library module of Lightroom without the CC app running. Like the others, I am skeptical that the CC app is affecting your performance.
  • Ken, As I said before, if you know what you are doing with PS, and it sure sounds like you do, you should be able to match Qimage quality. Qimage is nice because it does the proper output ...
  • You can assign the joystick button to "Direct AF point selection" in C.Fn  III-3. Then you don't have to hit the AF selection button.
  • Ken, The advantage as I see it is that I only have to sharpen the image once. Then Qimage sharpens and resizes it for the whatever paper and size I choose to print at. If you are proficient with ...
  • Here are pictures of a section of two 4" x 6" prints printed on Canon Paper Plus Glossy II with my Pro 100. The photo was sharpened for display in Lightroom, and then in the Print module I chose ...
  • I have indeed done this comparison between LR, PS, and Qimage. I believe you might be able to achieve comparable results from PS if you are skilled and knowledgeable about manually sharpening and ...
  • I use it, but only on the pictures I want to look their best. I only use the printing features, not the raw development.
  • +1 My club used a digital projector as Lightroom's secondary display that showed the captured frames in real time. A flat screen like Ben suggested would be better for your usage. Simple solution; ...
  • Replied in Clarification
    Are you using the cloud-based Lightroom or the desktop-based Lightroom Classic? My LR Classic does not work at all like that. Any changes made in Develop are immediately reflected back in Library. ...
  • This is The-Digital-Picture comparison. Tells a completely different story. https://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=972&Camera=979&Sample=0&FLI=4&API=0&LensComp ...
  • Also, above the filmstrip on the left are the two arrows you are looking for.
  • The problem went away shortly after the original post, but agree with you that a mechanical problem in the screen is the most probable culprit. I don't know if I will get to look at it unless it ...
  • I am amazed as well, but temper my amazement with a little caution. It is hard to believe they recreated the sharpness that they did. But they left artifacts in the eye and teeth to be repaired, ...
  • I don't really know, but all the cases of bad display cabling I have seen result in digital-appearing problems. Missing horizontal or vertical sections, horizontal bars, or strange colors. My ...
