  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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, http://laurashoe.com/ The advice is not to update for the time being. Ian
  4. 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 ever
  5. Hello I am a new contributor to Alamy and wondered if anyone could recommend a suitable workflow to prepare my pictures to pass the required Alamy QC. I shoot RAW files using a Canon 6D. Then do all my post processing in Lightroom. Richard
  6. Anyone else using the Alamy Lightroom plug in getting a 404 error when trying to fetch data today?
  7. So here I sit, staring at the screen of the new MacBook Pro that arrived last night, facing the decision I've dreaded--whether to sign up for Creative Cloud or switch. I've used Photoshop and Lightroom for many years, I like them plus they do everything I need and more. However I hate the idea of a monthly payment. What are my other options? So far I'm considering: Purchase the new Lightroom 6 but can it be installed standalone? Go with Lightroom 5.5 but I worry there may be compatibility issues with my Sony A7ii raw files. Purchase CS6 standalone but its very expensive and Adobe is go
  8. I have been using the Alamy Picture Manager plugin for Lightroom for a long time now and was very happy. It is a really great plugin by Jim Keirr www.lightroom-plugins.com/AlamyIndex.php and worth any cent as it makes your editing work much more productive and efficient. Unfortunately it no longer works properly. I am not sure whether this is since I last updated Lightroom or the plugin. The problem is that when I want to export, all data will be sent to Alamy with the exception of the keywords. At the same time all keywords will disappear in the plugin keywords box after export completion.
  9. I previously asked the forum to check out my pictures & give me tips to make my images better. I received many helpful replies & one of the major problems poiinted out by the professionals was that my images are badly lit or the lighting is flat. The reason for this being I used to click the "Auto adjust brightness & contrast" in PSE 13. So I dumped PSE 13 & switched to lightroom. And I personally found my images manually edited in Lightroom better than those in photoshop. After a long wait for a notification of failed QC, I was able to submit the images edited in lightroom. I
  10. As I have said in another thread I am in the process of trialling a probable switch from C1Pro to Lightroom. I just need a quick tip as I have to recover some lost time due to the C1 problems. My usual approach with C1 is to tweak the exposure to roughly centralise the histogram (especially if it is short) and then adjiust the black and whiote points to spread it out across the full tonal range. I then go on to fine tune adjustments, mid-point, contrast and lift shadows/highlights with white/blackpoint adjustment if necessary before noise reduction etc. Usually takes me no longer than it t
  11. I've just got a Fuji XT1 and 18-55mm kit lens and am using Lightroom 5.6 for processing. I'm wondering what standard import settings people are using, particularly Clarity/Vibrance; & Capture sharpening. I've been playing about and I'm not convinced that I've got the ideal combo yet. My settings are usually; Clarity +20/Vibrance+16. Standard LR sharpening. These work great with the Canon 5DMKII and the Fuji X100, but seem a bit soft with the XT1. Also I see that Adobe do not have a lens profile for the 18 - 55mm Fuji, any thoughts re this? TIA Phil
  12. Interesting post being pointed to in other Fuji forums. Not tried it yet myself but have a look. http://petebridgwood.com.gridhosted.co.uk/wp/2014/10/x-trans-sharpening/
  13. The keywords themselves I don't have an issue with, but I find I'm wasting too much time with redundancy. I put all the effort into keywording in Lightroom, yet when brought into Alamy, I have to redo it. I downloaded the Lr plug in for Alamy in the hopes to alleviate some of the wasted time and monotony. But before using it I have some questions to be sure I do it correctly and don't mess up anything I've already done or have in Lr catalogs. At present I have both Lr 3.5 and 4.4, with 4 different catalogs; 1 exclusively for Alamy. I use Collections to keep track of those I've used in Al
  14. This may have been covered before, if so Sorry' for boring you! I have noticed when using LR default sharpening 25 the final image has some kind of noise texture, especially noticeable in the sky. Can anybody recommend LR sharpening settings where it sharpens without what i call noise texture. Alamy has passed some of these images, however i think it must be on the edge of a fail. Comments will be welcomed. Paul.
  15. I am a relatively new Mac user (OSX 10.8). There are many things I still need to learn, so any help would be very much appreciated. In Develop mode in Lightroom 4.4, when I tick Soft Proofing box at the bottom, you can choose a profile on the righthand top, underneath the histogram. If I choose 'Other…', it brings up a list of profiles that I can tick but the one I want is not on the list. I have two questions in this regard. If you go to Macintosh HD/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/Profiles/Recommended, there are profiles that are not included in the above mentioned Lightroom list, how do
  16. Alamy recommends saving images in Photoshop at a quality level of 10 (where the maximum level is 12). I realised with most images I don't need Photoshop any more because most processing can be done in Lightroom. When saving the jpg file from Lightroom, however, the quality parameters available are different. No chance to set jpg level 10. My question: Am I correct to assume that a quality setting of 80% (and not limiting file size) when exporting from Lightroom will result in a quality level comparable to saving with jpg level 10 in Photoshop? I suppose I'm not the only one going this
  17. See here. It's also available to download on trial. I took the plunge today and upgraded (well TBH, on trial until I'm happy) Well I guess I am happy, a few hiccups taking my catalog across: 1. Color label sets not transferring, Need to copy/paste from old catalog. 2. Settings. Again, need to copy the folders if you have your settings stored with the catalog, not general. In use: 1. Defiantly more responsive. I took the opportunity to kill my old previews file so it rebuilds and the system is defiantly a lot faster now. Dual screens are now usable again on my old MBP (grid on secondary sc
  18. Hello. New contributor. Is there a way to NOT duplicate my keywording. Or is there a way for my Lightroom IPTC and Keywording to follow my submission from Lightroom, thru its upload? I saw the export plugin and I am looking for a way that does not have a plug in if available
  19. When you bring a RAW/DNG file from Lightroom to CS, work on it and save it, it adds '-Edit' automatically to the original file name. Can you change this to a different word instead of 'Edit'? Sung
  20. Certainly very few of us if any wish to spend our time sitting in front of the computer instead of the camera. One thing that came to mind discussing a different topic is duplication of effort. Wouldn't it be cool if, by adding appropriate keywords in Lightroom, Photoshop (or some other non-Adobe product we will be using when they start their "Creative Cloud" subscription model) info could end up in the right fields in Alamy Manage Images?! Say while you were spotting your images you could count the number of people, then add 3:people to keywords and that data would get picked up and i
