How to Transfer Lightroom Work from One Computer to Another

You traveled with a laptop and used Lightroom on this laptop to import and work on your photos while you were on the road. Now you’re back home and you’re wondering how to get the photos along with your work (flags, stars, keywords, editing, etc) into your main Lightroom catalog on your desktop computer.

(For best quality, after clicking on Play, click on the sprocket wheel in the bottom right and choose HD. Quality is better in the actual Lightroom CC/6 and 5: The Fundamentals & Beyond videos.)

Now Shoot in Raw in Lightroom Mobile on Some iPads, iPhones

Adobe has released an update for Lightroom mobile for iPad and iPhone that allows users to shoot DNG raw files with Lightroom mobile’s camera. This is available only for devices with a 12 MP camera –  the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus; and the 9.7″ iPad Pro. (The 12.9″ iPad Pro only has an 8 MP camera, so raw capture is not available on this device.) To update to Lightroom mobile 2.5, visit the App store, find LrM under Updates, and click on the Update button. For raw capture, your device operating system must be updated to  iOS10, which is due to be released later today. To check for the update on your mobile device go to […more]

Adobe this week gave Mac users an early heads up that the next major releases of Lightroom and other Creative Cloud desktop apps will only run on OS 10.10 (Yosemite) and later versions.  They gave no indication of when the next major release of Lightroom will come out. If you’re running 10.9 or earlier, you can update now to 10.11 (El Capitan), or wait until after September 20 and update to 10.12 (Sierra) when it’s released.  (Check to see if your computer will run: El Capitan   Sierra at this link.) I don’t recommend updating to Sierra until it has been out for a while, since there are often early issues with Lightroom compatibility. From what I understand, most of the compatibility issues with […more]
