Adobe Lr 5 User Review
I use adobe Lr for all of my post processing. I used to use PSP, still do for some unsharp mask or high pass sharpening. I just don't like using PSP or Elements for everyday processing, its too time consuming and unorganized digging through menus to get to controls. In Lr it is very organized, logical & intuitive. You work in modules going from left to right and top to bottom. Simply adjust a slider to see the effect. The big thing with Lr is it is non destructable, that is to say that while ...
Install Questions Regarding Lightroom 5.2
Hello all! I just downloaded the LR 5.2 update and have a couple of questions: First, do I need to in-install my original LR5 program prior to installing LR5.2 to prevent having "two" copies of LightRoom? Second, if I don't need to un-install my original LR5 program, do install the update to the same directory? Thanks for any insights or suggestions! Arvin

15'' Macbook Pro Retina- with Iris pro graphics for DXO Optix/LR
All I am in the market for a new mac. I have narrowed my search down to either a 15in MBP with 16gb and I7 (Haswell) and Iris Pro Graphics or a 21.5'' Imac with 16gb, fusion and a faster I7 (haswell). I am getting both for roughly the same price, albeit it being an excessive one!. I intend to use my purchase for photo editing and general home use. I am not a pro but a keen enthusiast. I currently use LR3 and Dxo Optics pro 8. However both are very slow on my current dual core processor. I wanted to check whether anyone has used DXO Optics 9 and LR4/5 on these new macbooks (2013) and whether the integrated graphics card works well enough. I am going for a 16gb memory to make things better but it is a very large investment for me which I am hoping to get full use out of for the next 3 years or so. I have very limited Adobe CS usage but sometimes use elements. Most of my work flow involves LR and DXO for editing (+15k and counting in pics). What I wanted to check was 1) What has been ...
You're asking if it's better to get a computer with a faster CPU, a faster GPU, larger screen and drive over one that is less well specified in all these respects? I think you've answered your own question. Me: I've got a retina macbook attached to external screens and not an iMac because portability is a huge issue for me, if it wasn't I would have bought an iMac. As to whether the GPU in the rMBP makes a big difference? I don't think there's been application specific benchmarks run yet so you're going to get "It's fast enough for me" answers from those who bought with and without discreet GPU. Is it a faster GPU? Yes. Does software make use of the GPU? Some. Will more software in the future make greater use of the GPU? Probably. Is the upgrade worth it?... only you can answer that. Continue Reading
Thank Jen. The only reason why I am/was considering the rMBP is the portability and the retina display. My budget wont allow me to get an additional screen so will have to make do with what I end up getting. The imac is very good on paper but my other usage for a imac are limited (with a MBP I can take it around with me for movies/home laptop). Guess I better get the scales out and weigh up the pro and cons of each. Have you used DXO with Iris Pro yet? Any notes from your experience would be helpful. Thanks Continue Reading
I am afraid that I cannot answer your post directly as my rMBP is slightly older (about 4 months) and not quite as well spec-ed (2.7 GHz i7, 16 GB Ram, separate 1 GB NVIVIA card, 512 GB ssd). However the new rMBPs offer a 1 TB ssd which is very appealing. As far as using my (slightly older) rMBP with OP 9, my experience was decent enough. Processing of images took about 8-12 seconds each, depending upon the amount of adjustments needed with Prime processing taking about 7-8 minutes per image. That compares well with my 3 year old PC laptop (which was bought highly spec-ed at the time). That machine takes about 10-14 seconds per image with Prime processing taking about 9 minutes per image. As an aside OP 9 seems slightly faster than OP 7. Processing times with OP 9 seem to be about 10-15% faster than with OP 7 on the same PC. I don't know if this is of any help. Continue Reading
Lightroom - Individual License or Cloud?
Hi Everyone, I'm fairly new to these forums and I've been learning a lot. I just bought the Sony DSC-HX50V and so far I'm loving it!! I also recently began using the free 30 day trial of Lightroom. I'm about half way done watching the training videos that Adobe provides. Here is my question. I have been using iPhoto and the pictures reside on my iMac. I also have a new MacBook Air. I would like to be able to view and edit my photos from either of my two Macs. I'm not sure if a purchase of an individual license will allow me to install the software on both of my Macs, and the bigger question is...I don't believe I will be able to have a single repository for my pictures if I buy the licensed version. Based on this, is there a solution using the cloud version of Lightroom? At some point to I will need to figure out how to incorporate years of photos that have been added to iPhoto. I appreciate any suggestions and input!
You can legally put Lightroom and Photoshop on two computers. If you are just starting to post process files the you are probably best off buying Lightroom only. When you get skilled in Lightroom then you may want to add a pixel level editor like Photoshop CC or Photoshop Elements. If you are used to post processing then you may want the combination of LR and Photoshop. With the $9.99/month deal Adobe has now I would recommend the subscription. Adobe has said that they don't have any current plans on taking LR exclusively into the cloud so if you don't find the subscription plan working for you then you should be able to buy LR and continue as before. To be able to move and work on the photos between two computers you need to place them on an external hard drive. You also need to place the LR Master Catalog on the same external hard drive. Be sure to make a complete copy of all photos and the Master Catalog to a second external hard drove as a backup. LR stores all edits in the ... Continue Reading
