  10. This might be of interest to those who want to ftp directly from lightroom, works with the current version
  11. A lot of people have shown interest for the new tools in LR Classic: the luminosity and color masks.Here is an in-depth review of the tools:
  12. Is anyone still using Jim Keir's Alamy Lightroom plug-in? Does it still work? Does anyone know if it is still being supported? I have emailed Jim directly but am yet to get a reply and the last two tickets I raised on his support site (months ago) never got any reply. Also since Alamy changed from keywords (based on a number of characters) to tags/supertags (based on the number of tags) how does it the plugin handle that? Does it handle it? I haven't used the plug-in for some months, In that time there have been a number of changes at Alamy for managing and uploading images. I've just changed computer and I can't get the plug-in isn't installing correctly. I can possibly fix that problem myself but I'm reluctant to spend time on it if the product is now "dead in the water" Thanks Ian.
  13. These are my impressions about the new cloud based version of Lightroom. I would like to know other user's opinions about it
  14. I have been working with the new version of Lightroom (the Classic CC) for over a week now. Here are my first impressions. I would like to hear other users comments:
  15. Is anyone else frustrated with the lack of development in Lightroom when it comes to keywording? LR has been out for ten years and there has been next to no development in the area of keywording in that time. I have written an open letter to Adobe outlining just ten things that would make a huge difference to us as professional or stock photographers - you can read it here: I'd love to get this open letter in front of the powers that be at Adobe - if you agree why not tweet or share in social media tagging adobe and lightroom. Thanks Ian.
  16. Keywords, Bridge and Lightroom

    I thought Adobe would improve this latest version of lightroom with a better keywording system, alas, no. So, I am going to start keywording in Bridge. Here's what I have so far Created several folders who what people where, etc within those folders a large amount of words If i click on an image and apply 4 or 5 keywords why do i get the folder names as well when I lightroom asks me to overwrite the data can show some images later if it helps
  17. Hello everyone I am new here (Passed QC about a week ago). I have prepared more images, but I'd like to make keywording as easy as possible. I have keyworded some of my images in Lightroom and would like to know if Alamy reads image metadata, that I see in LR (keywords, title, description) and will apply them after upload? Michael
  18. Does anyone know what the compatible fields are for the new IM in LR, ie number of people, caption, place, etc?
  19. A Lightroom CC / Camera raw update is available details here:
  20. Is there an automated way (e.g. preset) in LR to achieve a similar result to the auto-contrast function in PSE? I've tried the LR auto-tone and it messes with too many settings (highlights, shadows etc.) and I often don't like the result. I just want something that sets the black and white points automatically on a batch of images with varying exposure etc.
  21. Lightroom Export

    I would appreciate some guidance regarding export from Lightroom for optimum Alamy quality and best chance of image acceptance. Image format JPEG...Colour Space ( sRGB ? )....Quality 100..( assume no limit file size ? ) Image Sizing ( Resize to fit or not ?)....Assume resolution 300 ?....Output Sharpening ? Any other idiots guide to Lightroom Export appreciated. Kind Regards..With Thanks....David
  22. I recently updated from LR4.4 to 6.5 and was disappointed to find it ran quite a bit more slowly. Especially when removing noise by adjusting sliders, there was a delay of 2-3 seconds before the 1:1 display updated. However, I've just updated from LR 6.5 to 6.6 and the speed has improved dramatically (now a fraction of a second to update 1:1 display when removing noise). I'm not sure if my previous install of 6.5 had a problem, but the latest is fine. There's a Youtube video about the speed improvement from CC 2015.5 to 2015.6 here. I've not found any issues with 6.6 yet.
  23. Sorry to have to use this forum to ask about a Lightroom Plugin, but it seems the 'help' at Lightroom plugins is no longer alive, I have tickets from three weeks back unanswered, and I have seen people here do use the plugin, so fingers crossed I get a response here. I'm afraid I'm new to both Lightroom (I thought since Apple are killing Aperture, not much point starting to use Alamy with what will be dead soon), the Lightroom Plugin and Alamy, so probably out of my depth in all departments. anyhow, my question. In the PDF manual "Alamy Uploader PDF" there is a section dedicated to the "Fetch Alamy Metadata" export command, to quote, it says: "OVERWRITE ALAMY DATA When this is not selected, any Alamy-specific fields in Lightroom that have been set already will not be updated with metadata downloaded from Alamy. If it is ticked, all matching fields will be set with Alamy's data." This all seems a little back to front, telling the user what happens when it is not selected first, but ends saying if it is selected / ticked then "Matcing Fields will be set with Alamy's data", so as I understand that, it would be "Overwriting Lightroom Data" (With the existing Alamy data pulled down from the Alamy website) not as the name of the function suggests Overwriting Alamy Data. Can anyone confirm the name of the function is the reverse of what it actually does please? Thanks Stephen
  24. Adobe have posted an update to Lightroom, but there have been reports that not all is well for Mac users. There's more information here, The advice is not to update for the time being. Ian
  25. I am wondering what adjustments/functions would be considered digitally altering a photo by most people. It would include Alamy stock, Alamy news, or photo contests. Are there three different standards with three different requirements.. I have a friend that feels any manipulation of digital photos is taboo for photo contests and I believe almost anything I can do is acceptable. She and a lot of other people apparently believe that you can only do what used to be possible in a darkroom. So, what would be crossing the line for all the various purposes of a photo? I would like to get everyone’s opinions on what in particular would be changing the truth of a photo for whatever end use it is intentioned for. As software for digital manipulation becomes more sophisticated it is very hard to judge how much manipulation is too much.
