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 ...

Lightroom offers primarily integration and simplicity. This means a highly integrated workflow which takes care of images from import to publication and a feature set designed to cover the most common processing tasks for photographers. In terms of processing features, Lightroom is far less capable than Photoshop and even includes a workflow to process ...

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 and Photoshop aren't really (supposed to be) competing products -- they're complementary products that overlap. Lightroom is all about managing your workflow, which just happens to include image processing in most cases. Photoshop, on the other hand, is image processing to the max, but it doesn't really do much to help your workflow. There's ...

Support for Canon 750D camera need Lightroom version 6 (check this document) You can continue using LR 3, but before open RAW files you need to convert them to DNG with this software for example (its free) Or you can buy perpetual license for LR 6 here. You can download LR 6 (the last version) from here P.S. Also you can try the opensource alternative like ...

The principal difference is that some adjustments in Camera Raw are applied before demosaicing / conversion to destination colourspace & bitdepth. Such adjustments can't be replicated readily in Photoshop. Additionally the range and behaviour of adjustments is different between Camera Raw and Photoshop, some have migrated across (e.g. fill light) but ...

Adobe Lightroom is a streamlined photo processing and organizing software. Adobe Spark is a tool for visual storytelling on the web. Here's a comparison of the respective pro's and con's: Adobe Lightroom Pro: It's a good program for photo processing and organizing Con: It's not a tool for visual storytelling on the web Adobe Spark Pro: It's a good tool ...

To convert a decimal longitude or latitude to degrees (minutes and seconds), simply take the first, whole, number and use it as the degrees. Then multiply the remainder after the decimal point by 60 to get minutes. Continue multiplying the remainder of the minutes by 60 to get seconds of degrees. Your example of -79.06782 would then be: -79 degrees .06782 ...

Edited: It seems that you can upgrade from Lightroom v1.x, v2.x, v3.x and v4.x to v5 for the same price (upgrade and not full software). Last time I checked I haven't found this possibility. Good news for everyone :) Regarding your Lightroom software v3.5, installing Lightroom 5 will not modify your 3.5 installation (you will still be able to launch ...

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 ...

There is not a direct correspondance between standard JPEG quality 1-100 and Photoshop 0-12. The only thing they have in common is that to a bigger number usually corresponds to better quality. Quantization tables and image quality JPEG compression is a broad topic. There are many different parameters to consider, but the main element that affects image ...

In the Save As function the 0-12 quality scale is used, but in the Save For Web function a 0-100 scale is used. That 0-100 scale is probably close to the 1-99 scale specified in the standards. I compared the file sizes from the different settings, using a 21 MP image (so that the metadata is tiny compared to the image data), and came to this approximate ...

Even though the files from your new 7DII are in the .cr2 format, the data in a raw file is always sensor specific. That is, each different sensor design must be demosaiced/converted differently to get the same standardized results. Lr 3 is a while back. The latest version of Adobe Camera Raw (which is used by Lr to demosaic raw files) that is compatible ...

You can't have a Lightroom 6 trial version, only a Lightroom CC trial version. From Adobe itself (https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/kb/lightroom-trial-ccm.html), you have to install the Creative Cloud desktop app when you are logged in with a free Membership account. Then, you should be able to download it. You can download the Creative Cloud desktop app ...

The Batch Capture feature in Adobe Premiere is for use with Firewire based camera control and video capture. The 600D does not have a firewire connector and thus can not be used with Premiere's batch capture feature. If you wish to do remote capture with your 600D you should connect via USB and use the Eos Utility software that came with your camera.

The keyword box and keyword field below it work differently. The latter makes it easy to do what you want by inserting comma-separated keywords. Once you press Enter, all the words apply and the image is moved out of the collection but the point is that you can now apply multiple keywords at once. If you really do not like commas, you must change it to ...

You need to convert the format, which is simply a floating point number of degrees, into the separate parts for degrees and minutes. And it looks like it wants latitude measurements with the N (north) or S (south). Your example converts to -79° 4' 4.1514" I'm not sure exactly what Bridge wants, probably -79,4.069 I know that Adobe Lightroom 4's "MAP" ...

For very old versions of Lightroom or Photoshop to support newer cameras Adobe recommends to convert native, proprietary RAW files to DNG format. Snippet from an Adobe support page What if I own an older version of Photoshop or Lightroom? You do not have to buy a new version of Photoshop or Lightroom just to get the latest camera support. ...

What you need to do is to upgrade your version of Adobe DNG Convertor. The reason is camera vendors make slight changes in RAW formats of (almost) every new camera they release. And Adobe every several months release new version of DNG Convertor where is included support of new cameras (beside other changes). The same is true for RAW processor of Lightroom, ...

Being a recent convert to Lightroom, I can say the big benefit is the organization and workflow capability versus PS+Bridge. That combination does work, granted - I used it for quite some time. But Lightroom is a whole other animal. Tagging, rating, and meta edits seem much smoother in Lightroom. In common is the Camera Raw capability - you're not missing ...

I don't know about NEF, but I know with CR2, I have the ability to adjust how the RAW file is imported, but after import, you are working with a standard raster graphic in Photoshop and a lot of information for use with color correction and exposure control is lost. This is also the reason why Adobe Lightroom exists as a product. In general, the best ...

Lightroom is an image-management application, that can also perform non-destructive edits to your photos. That is to say it manages the importing, keyword/meta-ing, basic (non-destructive) manipulation and exporting of images. I know you can do this sort of thing in Photoshop, but Lightroom is designed to make this as easy as possible, and to guide you ...

If you use the default "without keywords" that installed with lightroom, it is a smart collection, meaning all the photos in the collection match a set of criteria and are included in the collection. As soon as you add the first keyword, the picture will disappear because it has a keyword and no longer matches the criteria for inclusion in the collection. ...

To avoid a re-import. Once the metadata for the capture time is correct you should be able to go into your library module and sort by date... Getting your pictures in the right folder is simple as selecting the photos from one year and dropping them into the correct year in your folder hierarchy.

For your first question, please refer to my answer to this post. It describes in Detail how you can customize the Folder Structure Lightroom creates on import. To your second question: You need to manually select the pictures you want to edit, and then go to the Menu "Metadata > Edit Capture time"
