  1. It's not the tenner a month I have a problem with but LR Classic won't run on OS10.13 and that is the latest OS my 2010 iMac will support. I was hoping there would be new large screen iMacs released earlier this year but it looks like they are much further down the road so my ancient Mac will have to soldier on for another bit longer.
  2. There probably aren't many of us still running 6.14 but I thought I'd update this old thread again because it does shows up when you google 'LR6 crashing' and this might help someone. My 6.14 started crashing again. 2010 iMac running OS10.13.5. I tried all the obvious fault-finding: removing preference files and various caches. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Eventually I found a post on a Windows forum about Adobe not renewing its facial recognition licence for LR6. I couldn't get it to launch to disable that preference. The trick is to roll back your computer's date to befor
  3. The only reason I would ever move away from an iPhone is to avoid the Apple tax. Some of the other top smartphones on the market are much better value. But jumping from Apple tax to Leica tax doesn't appeal. I'll wait for the Panasonic version 😅
  4. This has to be an elaborate April Fools (or similar).
  5. I put a new graphics card in my 2010 iMac and it has cured the crashing problem. Apparently a common problem. So my old iMac is back to full health and I'm back enjoying LR 6.14 on High Sierra and I am so pleased to have it back after experimenting with all the obvious replacement candidates.
  6. He's probably the most important living industrial designer, he has been instrumental in all Apple's successful designs since Jobs returned to them, and despite retiring from Apple a couple of years ago it seems like he consulted on the new iMac 24".
  7. I didn't change the default and because the Finder verifies the file was modified I can assume it is saved into the DNG. Sadly it seems from what people have kindly posted above, that Photos is unable to use those edits. Which leaves me it the choice of exporting to .tiff and never revisiting the edits (which would work fine for the vast majority of them), or staying locked into Lightroom forever. Hmmn.
  8. Thanks. Yes with storage space prices tumbling, I might just do that, set up a batch export of the whole lot.
  9. Before I take the plunge on becoming a LightRoom subscriber I wanted to experiment with using Apple Photos as an alternative. I have thousands of photos edited in LR. I have as far as I understand it, saved the edits in LR (command-S). The Finder tells me the files were modified when I made the save, so I assume the edit information has been written to the file. When I import the file to Photos I don't see the edits, the file is in its unedited original state. Does this mean Photos (latest version) can't read LR edits? Or am I missing a simple step?
  10. Yes, valid point and it's why I stayed away from iPhoto at the beginning, and why I wish I had stayed away from iMovie. With LightRoom you know where your files are. I know with Photos/iMovie it is only a question of right-clicking and selecting Show Package Contents but it is still a bit scary that the app is moving your stuff around.
  11. Yup, I hate subscription models too and have held onto using LightRoom 6 for as long as I could but the upgrade to Big Sur and my new M1 Mac Mini means the LR installer will no longer run. I'm in the same boat as you and have reviewed dozens of alternatives, kindly suggested by many on this forum. In the end that is the conclusion I came to as well, and having spent years with LR in its various versions I know how to use the bits of it I need and have found all the other packages to be frustrating. I understand the frustration of a subscription service but I think most
  12. I'm not sure where to post this https://www.macrumors.com/2021/03/29/leica-camera-from-former-apple-designers-auction/ A prototype Leica camera designed by former Apple designers Sir Jony Ive and Marc Newson is heading to auction in June.
  13. My experience: I decided to get the absolute minimum (256GB/8GB RAM) because it was on immediate delivery, and any increase in spec was on a longer lead-in and my home-schooling daughter urgently needed a machine. My thinking was influenced by one of the (countless) YouTube reviews I watched which reasoned the entry level model is so well priced that you can risk running it for a while and selling it used for a reasonable chunk of what you paid when you want to upgrade, plus you get the benefit of its warranty and then the warranty on the upgraded machine in the future. 256GB is jus
  14. Twenty years. Well well. Have we figured out which lens to take on holiday yet?
