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 ...

Yes it can be calibrated using the proper hardware. I have a retina display macbook and also a Spyder Elite 3, and I can calibrate it to match my 23" desktop monitor. The result is pretty close, side-by-side, the colours are almost identical. Inaccurate default settings of the Macbook This is true. You were also right about the high contrast. I was stupid ...

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. It is universal file, so If you move it to other machine (preserving paths to photos) you will also be able to have you edits elsewhere.

cmason's answer has covered how to get the photos out of Photos. However, here's where you first went wrong. When you import images to Lightroom, Lightroom gives you four different ways to do this, and they're all at the top of the Import window. You select which one you want by clicking on it. From left to right, the options are: Copy as DNG. This ...

In general, every monitor has subtle differences on them, so if you really need a high-standard calibration, you should do it to your equipment. There are many softwares you can use to calibrate your monitor. For example, take a look at SpyderElite , for about $170.

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 ...

Sorry, but no, not directly - but you can try free beta of FastRawViewer, http://www.fastrawviewer.com/ and send the selected ones to Photoshop.

I don't know of any import plugin for Lightroom to Photos app. However, it is possible to import from the Photos repository, just not that simple. Photos.app copies all the photos it manages into a separate repository, called "Photos Library". On your Mac, go to your Pictures folder, and look for something called Photos Library. Right click on it and ...

So I've been using Lightroom CC recently as a test - it turns out that this sort of syncing does not work well. Adobe Lightroom stores absolute paths to files and folders. If you open Lightroom in Windows and save that to the cloud, then download your Lightroom library from the cloud to a Mac and open Lightroom on the Mac - everything will break. There's ...

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: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4990358 Since writing that I worked out what caused the ...
