I've just spent an hour with Adobe's customer service trying to upgrade my Lightroom 4 (which came bundled with my M9-P when I bought it) to Lightroom 5. Adobe has no record of my "order" for Lightroom 4 - presumably because I did not "purchase" it but got it with my camera - and virtually accused me of lying. So I only have the option of buying the full Lightroom 5 at double the cost of an upgrade from Lightroom 4. Anyone else in this situation?
Within Lightroom 4 there is a decent selection of lens profiles for the Leica M (as well as the S), but when attempting to download more in the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader not a single lens is shown when selecting "Leica" from the "Camera Make" column. I would think that at least the existing profiles would be there, but nothing! I am looking for a solution to correct for the color cast of the Cosina-Voigtländer 15mm and 21mm M lenses on the Leica M9. I bought the Super-Elmar M 18mm as a compromise, but I decided to go with the Leica 21mm and ditch the rest. In the meantime, I still need to correct the images I have made with the CV 15mm and 21mm. Does Lightroom 4 have the ability to correct these color casts like Cornerfix, or am I barking up the wrong tree? If not, where can I download Cornerfix profiles? Must I make my own?
I have taken it upon myself to archive photographs of my family, both on my side and my wife's size. The pictures are not a problem other than the usual quality issues with old transparencies and prints. My father was an enthusiastic photographer (from who I inherited my now unused IIIg) and he left behind many transparencies and I have scanned in most of his, my wife's and my own Kodachromes and Ektachromes and I am now in the process of scanning pictures from my wife's family, most of which are prints. Since I don't know or recognise many people in the older pictures here I created a Zenfolio gallery and have asked particularly the older people in the family write notes on whatever the know about individual photographs as comments in the Zenfolio gallery. Some of the comments from my eldest brother-in-law are turning to be very interesting and I want to be able to archive them along with the pictures. The pictures are all in Lightroom but Lightroom does not seem to support extended text metadata (a paragraph or two long sometimes). In the Library module I see a "Comments" field but can do nothing with it. There's a message below that says "Selected Service does not support comments". Is there a way to have a paragraph or two of text associated with pictures in Lightroom? Or is my best bet to export the pictures to some other software library that will support text associated with pictures? If so, any suggestions as to which software would be best? I can of course leave the pictures and comments on the Zenfolio gallery but I am keen not to keep these pictures on line indefinitely or to at least have a backup on a disk at home. I will really appreciate any help. - Vikas
