  • Replied in Backup plans
    Amazon CloudDrive offers unlimited storage for $59/yr and no restrictions (or cost) to retrieval. It lacks the SLA's S3 has, but it uses the same underlying platform. It is a great and cheap means ...
  • I added warmth with WB and a bit of amber - my taste in PP, easily changed. Here's a cooler version.
  • Replied in 5 minute edit
    My quick 5 minute edit. Not the hardest file I've worked with. Then again, most of my photos are in less than perfect light (read: during the day). Biggest issue is that nothing is really sharp as ...
  • Why so condescending? Not everybody is into creating art or being a protog. Some people just really enjoy using their camera to document places they have visited. Just because one doesn't (want ...
  • I had something similar after a crash. Fix was simple (for me): within LR, hit "optimize database", wait until it was finished, exited LR and opened back up and all was normal again.
  • I don't know where you get the idea that more than 16GB is useless, but that's in the category of the fabled "640KB ought to be enough for anybody". :) My workstation has 64GB of memory and while ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Correct. You may need to make sure XMP sidecar files are written, but once done and you simply copy your files + XMP sidecar files to your laptop (or vv) library location and synchronize your ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Yes, LR is available on both Mac and PC and work the same. You cannot easily have the same pictures and edits on both computers, but you can transfer from one to the other.
  • Things may have very well changed with their latest models, however Drobo is not known for being a speed daemon. Even their Thunderbolt offering is rather pathetic compared to similar devices from ...
  • Yes, they can. Of course it depends on what you do with it if it actually does: mine also functions as a web and media server and that means it rarely if ever powers down as most of the time ...
  • Speed may not be a concern now, but it probably will later. Drobo is slow. It has some cool technology, but it is still slow. It also implements a propriety system for their redundancy, which ...
  • If you use spot-metering and expose the highlights you want to preserve at +3EV (or use +3 exp comp if you are using any of the auto settings), you can pretty much recover all highlights while ...
  • Replied in Windows Old
    Or you just leave it and let Windows clean it up automatically after 30 days. :)
  • +1 The best protection is common sense.  Use an adblocker.   Don't click every link you get presented on Facebook or whatever.  Don't open attachments in mail you didn't ask for.  Have your ...
  • I use a Corsair M65 Pro and love it, but no mouse is going to be close to the accuracy of a Wacom tablet.
  • Did you turn off sharpening and noise reduction in LA? Current beta can do automatically, but earlier didn't which would result in those types of things if left on.
  • Did you read the article at art? Sure, the title is click bait but article is spot on. Not that you shouldn't use protection but some av packages give more headaches than they will ever fix. (I'm ...
  • I have recently also experimented with it, and was impressed. I have played with Iridient on my Mac but never got along with it.  I just love LR. However with transformer, setting to detail and ...
  • Apparently, they support 2 branches of code: current and current-1. Updates are no longer standalone, but rollup updates that include all previous updates like ServicePacks back in the day. If a ...
  • Very generous, as you yourself can get your hands on a (legit) Win10 Pro OEM license for about $60-$70 if you dig around. But like mentioned in the other response to you, it very much depends on ...
