  • The Library makes it easy to find things. There are several views in the Library module. The green arrow points to the grid view which shows a number of thumbnails (size of thumbnails is adjustable ...
  • IMHO, nothing is futureproof just as nothing is foolproof. The best you can do is future resistant. Which, of course, means that maintenance is going to be an important part of your workflow.
  • ACR is used by both LR and PS. PS doesn't have the database import problem that the OP doesn't care for. Bridge can be used to organize by folder structure and PS can be used through Bridge to do ...
  • Perhaps my reply was badly worded. I did not intend to denigrate you for your opinion. I was merely pointing out that there are other options. If something doesn't fit your needs, try something else. ...
  • Well, if the one drive fails then you have lost everything that you haven't backed up. But if it's backed up you haven't lost anything except possibly the last few files that you hadn't gotten ...
  • You are allowed to choose the workflow that works best for you. If Lightroom or C1 don't work for you, don't use them. If Nikon's raw processing software does what you need, you're good. The only ...
  • I have ALL my photos on one drive in LR. Back to 1822 (family documents, not all photos). They are backed up on local and cloud systems so I don't worry about losing them. I have a box full of the ...
  • If I have a drive nearly full I copy it onto a larger drive and unplug the original drive, then rename the new drive so it has the same name as the old drive. The path is then unchanged and LR ...
  • Personally I feel that if you're properly organized at the first place, if your files are placed in the right place the first time, there is no reason to ever move them (I will certainly allow you ...
  • Bypassing the question of the moronic status of developers, the use of a folder structure to manage your files is a holdover from the 1980s. Using a database to manage information has been around ...
  • I'm a Lightroom guy. After I plug the card into the reader, it opens Downloader Pro which copies the files onto my disk after changing the names to something meaningful. Then I import the photos ...
  • The key is in the organizational aspect of LR. LR will present to you an array of thumbnails showing you all the photos you have imported. This helps you choose which images you want to work on. Ho ...
  • Replied in I like that!
    I recommend "The Lament of Deor", written around 850. It's a poem of sorts telling about several people who experienced misfortunes. The refrain of each stanza is "Þæs ofereode þisses swa mæg" That ...
  • I recently got a pair of sunglasses (since I had to dispose of my prescription glasses after having cataract surgery). They were cheap, but they were polarized. I now have trouble viewing the data ...
  • If they're REALLY in your way, trade them for something. $50 is probably not enough to be worth the hassle of selling them. If they're all working, try something new that uses several lights at ...
  • If your camera can save settings to a card, use it for that. Save the settings and put it in your bag. Maybe even paint it red so you don't mistake it for a card for photo storage. No point in ...
  • The point is that if you use move from the card to the computer, it copies to the computer and deletes the file from the card. IF the copy doesn't work correctly, you wind up with trash on the ...
  • Move is NOT doing things one step at a time. It's copying, AND deleting. If there's any problem with the copying, the deleting will be a real problem. One step at a time would be (1) copy; (2) ...
  • What I would really like to see is an example separating hair from a busy background. I don't always have a nice uniform background for my subjects.
  • Sounds as if the import dialog got changed from "Add" or "Copy" to "Move" PS: You don't have to import directly into LR. You can just copy the files to your disk and then import them into LR. I ...
