No, it does not matter where your JPEG comes from. Editing a JPEG degrades its quality. The reason that JPEG is not suited to editing has to do with the way the data is saved in JPEGs, not whether the camera produced the JPEG or Lightroom did. I suggest you read the many excellent answers on this site that explain why raw is better than JPEG for editing. ...


No - You cannot upgrade only the camera raw portion of LR separately from the software as a whole. The workaround is exactly what you proposed - using the free converter to DNG. This is how Adobe keeps you upgrading. If you get a new camera, you may also need to upgrade your Adobe software unless you want to change your workflow(use the free converter, stop ...


The Facebook Graph API looks like it should do the trick, or at least extract the captions for you. I don't have any experience with this particular API, but full documentation is there, and it looks like you can obtain captions (name): ...


It isn't really "stuck" in the past. The release of Camera Raw and Lr can be out of step on occasion, but rarely for more than a few weeks. Most of the time, they are released as updates on the same day, as was the case for CR 8.7 and Lr 5.7. I recall that the minor release numbers of both related products are set to match on purpose. For older releases of ...

Also, i managed to get the result i wanted (background pure white) but not just by post-processing. I had to shoot again. Method 1) Used more lights, enough to make the area around the person pure white. Then i ...


Lightroom uses a SQLite database to hold its keyword information. SQLite does have size limits, but they are so high that it simply isn't worth worrying about them. You can have zillions of keywords in your catalog. HOWEVER. It is not only possible to make Lightroom slow to a crawl, I can do it at will. Heavy keyword use is one of the easiest and most ...


Get DXO Optics Pro and dump Lightroom, that's the best advice you can get, trust me. I felt the same way. Catalogue sucks big time, in DXO I have already my work done while in LR it's just Importing photos... And the details and noise reduction are clearly superior in DXO. Just be sure to get DXO v9 and above, it really shines from 9.5 IMHO.
