  • I used C1 a while ago and never upgraded. But it's good software. The organizational part of it isn't as accomplished as Lr, especially if you use plugins in Lr, and of course nothing like Ps. And ...
  • Replied in photo editors
    I think the selection tools work better in Ps CC. I have to do a lot less tweaking. Panoramas, HDR and content aware fill are things you could do, but are faster and easier. But another thing you ...
  • And BTW, I forgot to mention that although Spotlight can find photo keywords, that breaks down if you use sidecars. If a keyword is in the sidecar file, Spotlight has to index it. I had to do way ...
  • Ratings (0-5, not necessarily "stars"), keywords and geodata are all standardized photo metadata. Tons of applications can apply and search on these, some easier to use, some more powerful. Lr is ...
  • Lr is the strongest for organization and such by far. The big problem with using Photos is that it requires that you use a managed library for images that are synced over iCloud. It's possible to ...
  • Heh...but you don't need a D850 either probably ;-) . Point being that there are lots of tools that will do the job here, both in computing and in cameras. Like cars. The trade-offs break ...
  • I dunno about "fully compatible program" and rendering, but if you want a publish service that can export to Google Photos try: http://lightroom-google-photo-plugin.stanaka.org Jeffrey Friedl also ...
  • That was sorta my conclusion. I have it, but found after some months of using it a bunch that I usually toned everything down in such a way that it wasn't worth exporting out of Lr. Lr then got ...
  • A key difference (aside from the obvious DAM features) is how info about edits is stored. Ps files, if you use say adjustment layers, stores info in the file. And with layers, that can grow a big ...
  • I think there's only one place in metadata in the preset where you can add a date, in IPTC. To change the timestamps it's usually better to use the menu item and change it in exif. Are you ...
  • I assume you've discovered "open with..." can, though? I had tried resetting the file associations, but for some reason they don't work with Bridge, other than showing "default" by AP in the ...
  • I tried one on 10.13.2. No QuickLook; just hung. No icon preview. But opens in Preview and Photos.
  • You're doing a lot of working around, since Lr wasn't really designed with a mobile or Lr CC flow TO the desktop (before Lr CC the app, with Lr and Lr Mobile it worked much better desktop to ...
  • Yeah, I kinda agree. Be nice to have finer control. I seem to recall it would work to use a symlink to move the previews off to an external, but I personally wouldn't wanna take the performance ...
  • I certainly agree with the advice so far. To further streamline that workflow, I'd wanna know about the exports. As noted, there's no reason to generate a new file, an export, simply to preserve ...
  • I think by default previews are stored with the catalog, and are like "Lightroom Catalog Previews.lrdata" or something to match your catalog name. Inside is a structured file hierarchy of ...
  • Created discussion thread Great deal on base iMac Pro: $4k
    I know some folks are considering new iMacs; if you can live with base configuration of an iMP (32GB RAM and 1TB SSD, 8 core) then consider this deal for $1000 less than Apple sells it for, from ...
  • No, it's not scaled for the UI. Retina-aware applications use a separate set of say icons and such. For example, the compass-Safari icon is much more detailed, because it's bigger. Like the ...
  • I agree; I think all other things being equal go with simplicity and that would be DAS. A friend, considering similar choices (he has big Ps files too) is opting to spend more on a  bigger internal ...
  • Since you've managed so far without synching, you might wanna try something simpler, but less comprehensive. Simply export a catalog with a subset/collection of images and then import that on the ...
