Adobe Photoshop Lightroom does. It has since version 4.3 released on December 13th, 2012(it was also in an earlier RC). What are you actually looking for is support of HiDPI, which Lightroom 4.3 and above has. Adobe also updated Photoshop CS6 to version 13.0.2 which supports HiDPI displays. (Note that this does not apply to Photoshop Elements, for which no ...


This is not really a bad question if you aren't already well versed in color management. After all, the Retina display is hyped as a pretty fantastic, beats-the-pants-off-of-everything-else display. But if all you want to do is look at the pictures on the screen, then you only need to use your own judgement whether you like it or not. But if you are going ...


You are probably working with RAW files. RAW files include a preview of the image rendered as the camera would have made a JPEG, which includes some sharpening applied. When you first load the image in a program like aperture, the preview JPEG is displayed until the RAW file can be processed. Since the RAW file has no sharpening applied, it appears to get ...


I am not Mac user, but as long as Time Machine will backup Lightroom catalog you'll have backup of your edits. Lightroom catalog (lrcat file extension) is a database file where all edits and metadata are stored.

Step through the Display preferences built-in color calibration tool, and see what you think from there.


While I lack direct experience with the Retina display, this article from ZDNet appears to indicate that it can be well calibrated. It also looks like they specifically did tests with a Spyder in that article. Most likely the issues your photographer friend was experiencing was a gamut issue where the colors being produced on screen could not be replicated ...


Why don't you try to transfer photos using the card with a card reader, there is no need for any software while transferring with a card. Just buy a card reader, attach it to USB port, plug in your card and transfer.


Yes, but with difficulty. I notice that others have had issues with screen calibrators on the MBPR, both Spyders and Xrites. My experience was similar. For details, I wrote about it here, and included links to other discussions involving calibration difficulties: Since writing that I worked out what caused the ...
