  1. I just stumbled on this recently. Was I the only guy here that didn't know about this feature? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSo_DuGC_a0 Now I can spend more time in the pub!
  2. Good morning, dear forum members. Since my iPhone X supports RAW, I only use the Lightroom CC App to shoot and edit my pictures. The results after saving edited RAWS as JPEGs are incomparably better. 100% crop shows details I could never achieve by shooting JPEGs directly. Does anyone of you upload iPhone pictures to Alamy and if yes, is this a problem for QC?

  3. Hello, everyone. Really enjoying this forum so far. I am brand-new, and haven't found an answer for this yet in my forum or Alamy instruction search so far. I was in the process of putting my first image on sale, and trying to figure out the best method for choosing which excess Lightroom tags I wanted to delete. I deleted a few, and wasn't seeing any changes to the number of tags. I then counted the tags, and realized that although the screen was saying there were 50/50 tags, there were actually a lot more showing. (Before I counted, I had assumed Alamy had already deleted excess tags on import, and I was figuring I was going to have to put some important ones back in.) Then I saw a note that said changes wouldn't be recorded until you hit Save. So I went ahead and hit it because I thought you had to do that to refresh the page with tag deletions. But lo and behold, evidently hitting that button puts your image up for sale! So evidently it's gone into the process for sale with way more than 50 tags? Does this mean the system will automatically delete excess tags? Alphabetically? I'm curious why the system wouldn't tell you you had too many tags before putting the image into the sales queue. Thanks for any help anyone can give me! I hadn't designated any supertags or filled out the optional information either, so now I'll have to do that after the fact. It also defaulted to royalty-free, which I quickly changed. This is the second issue I've had so far with something Alamy could probably use a "Confirm" dialog box for before automatically launching a significant process. Edit: I've since figured out that the image goes on sale as soon as you meet the minimum mandatory info requirements. I've edited the listing to delete excess keywords, but I still have my question about what would happen if I hadn't.
  4. Do you have one huge Lightroom catalog with all of your images or do you have several? How do you divide them up if you have more than one? I thought this would be an interesting discussion and I also could use some advice. I have one huge catalog. Organization is tricky for me, thanks to ADD, so I like having everything in one place, but with over 100K images, it is just so large I'm not sure that one catalog makes sense anymore. Back in 2011, I organized all of my photographs going back to 2005 from various backup drives and CDs/DVDs (remember them?), into one giant LR catalog. It took me over a year to get through a slew of disorganized drives and discs and determined which was the most current version. But the hard work paid off and I was really happy with how it turned out. But now it is getting unmanageable. The current catalog is backed up to two duplicate drives - a 4TB LaCie and a 6TB G-Tech - and most of it is also on a WD RAID array that got too small for the entire thing, so I split it into one for Europe and one for the US, leaving only my US photos on the RAID and backing up the Europe catalog (much smaller) onto another drive. I also have several smaller backup drives - mostly 1-2TB - with smaller "working" catalogs of various sizes - which I find to be far less organized than the two large ones. Since I often rework images or have shoots where I've only developed a handful of images (I used to use the Nik Capture software which was so slow compared to LR where I can process a slew of images at once), I find that having everything in one place is helpful, but the catalogs have gotten so huge now that I'm considering going back to a smaller catalog system, but could use some organizing tips. I'm considering using the two huge catalogs primarily as archives - and starting a new large "working catalog" for each year, then backing them up as I go to the large archive, so that I'd work on older images from the backup drives, while keeping everything current - the last two years - on my laptop (with 2 backups). I also back up everything to Sync and Photoshelter on the cloud, but neither of these back up the catalogs - just the photos - which means extensive edits in Lightroom, stars, colors, organization, are only on the hard drives. Is there any online backup solution for catalogs? Please discuss. Thanks!
  5. Does anyone know if it's possible to append metadata text in multiple files? I want to remove the 'live news' text element from my image caption/title fields but leave the rest.
  6. 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.
  7. I'm currently using a Canon 7d Mk2, and interested in upgrading to a full-size sensor, for better low-light performance and larger field of view. Finding I need to pull up shadows frequently,--more than is sometimes possible with current setup-- or get a large architectural feature in the frame without backing up to Shanghai. There are lots of shots I would like to take but don't, because of the need for high ISO or shooting underexposed and fixing later. Am looking at the Sony a7R3 with their 24-105 f4 lens. That, and the Nikon D850 are being reported as being at the top of the list for dynamic range and high ISO performance. My question for those who are using large MP cameras and LR is: will processing speed in LR slow significantly when I move from a 20MP sensor to a 42MP sensor? Do you find it problematic? Logical comeback question is--what computer am I using? 1) LR Classic CC, latest update. 2)Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming laptop, with Intel i7 processor at 2.8GHz, 16GB ram, Nividia GTX 1060 graphics card, Windows 10. 3)Monitor is a Dell 4K, 3840 x 2160, 24", 30Htz. Will be grateful for your comments. --Michael
  8. Good morning all, Quick question... I use Lightroom 5 and at present see no reason to up grade. But what is max capacity for "All pictures"....if any...??? I do regular spring cleans moving pic files onto back up hard drives and end up with average working total on catalogues of 20,000 files... Was just curious as to what limits are..??? Thank you Sparks
  9. I always keyword and caption in lightroom before uploading. Can any one explain that if I keyword the tif image and export to jpeg, the keywords and caption are intact when uploaded to Alamy. Yet if I keyword and caption a jpeg image in lightroom the keywords and caption are Missing upon upload? My last upload had a mixture of both, so it's not a batch problem.
  10. I created a high quality DNG panoramic images from about 7 vertical Raw full frame images on a D750 with a 50 mm lens. The process took about an hour to make the panoramic (and frustratingly slowed down my whole pc, including internet during the time) When I zoom into the panoramic, which was really good, the detail was exceptional. I then exported to a Jpeg at my usual 11 megapixels with "resize to fit" and "don't enlarge" checked. When I zoom into the Jpeg the quality is quite fuzzy at over 100%, nowhere near the sharpness of the DNG render. As I am new to making LR panoramics, can anyone advise how to get the best quality export from a DNG file, hopefuly keeping the same sharpness quality ? Thanks.
  11. Just wondering if any one else experiences a considerable time delay before Lightroom opens and is ready to use. I am still using LR 6.1.1 and the catalogue size is getting close to 1Gb. It can take up to 4-5 minutes for the program to become available to use. Should I be optimising the catalogue or reducing the size of it? Any help much appreciated. BW, John
  12. I have a strange problem when using Jim Keir's Alamy Lightroom bridge. I spend quite a lot of effort trying to get my metadata fully optimised (10 supertags/50 tags, and ensuring everything is filled in). The bars on each image shows full green. Not a problem. However, when I use the plugin to do a "Set Alamy Data" the discoverability bar on the left side image grid shows orange, but the discoverability bar on the right side image summary shows full green. It's only when I change the Primary or Secondary Category does it pop back to full green indicating it's optimised. Has anyone else seen this issue, and do you know of a simple solution, rather than having to reset the category on every affected image? https://www.dropbox.com/s/ootwbe8rsltyr62/Screenshot 2018-03-28 20.31.09.png?dl=0 Stephen.
  13. I often go back and reprocess old images or even more recent ones that I think I can improve or make a different version of for Alamy. After watching this video I learned that there is another reason to turn your attention to older photos. I like to think my processing skills have improved and I know the software has gotten better. He talks about color rendering and demosaicing have improved for older cameras, He states towards the end of the video that Capture One and Lightroom have evolved over the years to give better results making it worthwhile to revisit those older images.

  20. Hi, I have lost my lightroom catalog and with it much to the relations between my alamy uploaded photos and the store photos in my pc. I was able to restore many of them as long as they were upload with the same name they have now, and had the imp file. For the remaining ones I was trying to use the condition in the alamy plugin for lightroom to exclude file prefix and only use the original filename (ex. original file P123.orfc uploaded to alamy now has name portugal-P123.orf) but it seems I am not getting it right. Has any of you used this functionality with success? My plugin version is 1.0.6646 Thanks

  25. I have seen recently a lot of discussions about the standalone Lightroom vs the CC subscription. My favorite tool is only available through the subscription, the magic Dehaze slider, in my opinion worth on its own the $10 per month. I have also found a tiny little bug... https://youtu.be/-7K8yXVYVxk
