I think you'll be fine. Look at the case of Aperture, discontinued by Apple. Adobe offers an Aperture import plug-in. Lightroom's catalog is an SQLite database and much of the data stored within it is in XML format so the data is very accessible to programmers if the need arises. In the unlikely event that Adobe and Lightroom ceased to exist, it would easy ...


If Adobe stops support for Lightroom, you use your catalogs just as you did before. You don't need Adobe's support to use the software, especially if you have a perpetual license. But even if not, the "read only" features will still work after Adobe revokes your CC license. Other than that, there is no migration path to other software currently available. ...


Lightroom is a very successful product. I suggest you not worry too much about this possibility until it happens. It's fairly safe to assume if Adobe does decide to abandon Lightroom, someone will take up the opportunity to create an importer that will suck up your Lightroom data into their product, the way Adobe did with Apple Aperture recently. To be ...


The description information in the LR's catalog (like keywords, rating, title, etc.) can be easily written into your images as XMP metadata. And any decent DAM solution that supports XMP/MWG can easily import it. Information about your non-destructive RAW adjustments also can be written into the XMP but this is unuseful for other programs because these are ...


Increasing local contrast while reducing overall contrast when working with an image that has very high contrast between adjacent areas will cause such a glow in the lighter areas that are nearest to the darkest areas. Many apps use such a method and can, if applied strongly enough, result in the halo effect. The photo above was processed from a single ...


I agree with most that you will not have to worry for some time that Lightroom will stop being developed and even if it does stop being developed, it will be able to be used for some time afterwards (since an internet connection is not required to run, only update). The problem with running software that is no longer maintained is that computer equipment ...


There is a portal, where you can select it as ILCE-7(R). It shows some 20 apps, and one of them (E 9,99) does time lapses. It is possible to develop in-cam apps too but I can't find a link so quickly. Maybe that requires an account first.


The config file of Ufraw is located in %USERPROFILE% and it is named .ufrawrc You can delete or rename this file to reset your current settings P.S. There is a dot as first symbol in filename


ImageMagick (by default) uses ufraw-batch to convert RAW files, including ARW. I'd make sure you have the latest version of ufraw installed. The Sony ILCE-6000 (aka α6000) is on the supported list, so it should be okay. If you add the -verbose flag to convert, it should show you exactly how it's calling out. My guess is that if you update the ufraw it's ...


I think I have a good workaround. Of course a plugin for this task would still be the best. I did this with Lightroom 5. Add the photos you want to convert to the (empty!) Quick Collection and select them all. You could also just select the photos without adding them to any collection. But then it's VERY important that you don't (accidently) unselect any ...
