  • The entire image processing algorithm was upgraded in LR4, enabling you to produce dramatically higher image quality than anything LR3 could produce. Let me say that again, with emphasis — ...
  • Some people are still using Lightroom 4 and they are as happy as clams (I didn't know clams could be happy, but that's the phrase used ...) If this is a concern of yours, then you need to strongly ...
  • The next version of LR (sometimes called LR 7 but officially it is "Lightroom Classic CC") is a desktop application. You never have to use the cloud if you don't want to. Why upgrade? There are ...
  • I disagree. This is not only contrary to what Adobe has said, but it is also contrary to what users have reported who stopped their subscription. Your prior edits can be exported after the ...
  • Let's be 100% clear. If you're talking about Lightroom, and you stop paying the subscription, the software still allows you to access all of your previous work, and use the Library module as a ...
  • This is not how the DNG converter works. It does not show .RW2 (or any raw) files in the folder. You use the DNG converter by double-clicking on the folder, and then all files in the folder will be ...
  • It's hard to tell without seeing the photos (and I understand why you won't share them). Would it be possible for you to perform the same photography and editing of some public location, and share ...
  • It's hard for me to imagine either DNG or NEF going away, as there are dozens of companies that have the software to decode DNG and dozens of companies that have the software to decode NEF. (And ...
  • Perhaps the only data you think is "useful" left out of xmp is pick flags and edit history ... but others would disagree. XMP will not contain "useful" things such as collection membership, it ...
  • Such as? Finding a program that displays/allows modifications to DNG easier than it displays/allows modifications to NEF doesn't seem like an easy task to me, if such a program exists. Any program ...
  • I don't think there's an obvious benefit to doing this, if your goal is archival of photos. Both are subject to being obsolete in the future, although I suspect that is WAYYYYY in the future, ...
  • Yes, there is, so I don't see any reason to transfer the photos the way you said; rather you should transfer photos via a catalog.
  • My personal opinion is that there's no point in purchasing software (such as LR 6) that will never be updated. The updates are important (not just for future operating system compatibility) but ...
  • It's for people who want organizing and workflow solution as well as a powerful editor (but not as powerful as Photoshop).
  • Well, if you're going to compare editing tools, then Photoshop wins. The whole point of LR is that it gives you a lot of features that are not editing tools (see my earlier post) that are ...
  • Match the sizes of what?
  • Lightroom is a workflow tool. It handles every step of the workflow from obtaining the photos from the camera, to final distribution. Used properly, it can simplify your workflow greatly (depending ...
  • You can change from the default rendering to something more pleasing. This is one of the great strengths of LR.
  • Adobe doesn't try to match other manufacturer's colors. Other than that, all I can say is many people get excellent colors from Adobe products.
  • I don't really know the answer with regard to laptop, but you shouldn't approach this question as "which BRAND should I purchase?" You want to have certain hardware specifications, that will ...
