Updating to MacOS Catalina?

We at Lightroom Guy are always keeping our eyes on MacOS issues and we're still holding off on updating to Catalina. It’s not ready for prime time. At least not for us, so we can't recommend updating to Catalina to our clients and readers.

Backblaze Update 7.0 Catalina Compatible


Backblaze Update 7.0 Has Just Been Released

Apple does this: abandons technology for the next shiny toy. In this case, 32 bit support has been replaced with 64 bit support only.

The October 9th MacRumors story, “32-Bit Apps ‘Not Optimized for Your Mac’ No Longer Working on macOS Catalina,” says “Apple warned that it (Mojave) would be the last version of macOS that would support older

When Lightroom Crashes on Mac

Lightroom Crashes!

I thought I’d seen the last of this, but Lightroom crashes suddenly on Macs. It just disappears from the screen in an instant. I used to see this more often with Lightroom 6, but I still see it happening. Usually after an update to Classic from earlier versions of Lightroom.

Hold Off On Updating to MacOS Mojave

As I wrote in an earlier post, please hold off on updating to MacOS Mojave, which is the Mac operating system number 10.14. Apple announced its release today, September 24th at 5pm.

A really good example of “Why Not?”

Word of Caution Installing Mac OS Mojave

Wait to install Mac OS MojaveA word of caution for our readers to consider before installing Mac OS Mojave, which is expected to be released some time in September. We follow a few tech bloggers who are Mac centric and one that we find particularly interesting is The Eclectic Light Company – Macs, Painting, and More, authored by Howard Oakley, one of the most interesting and prolific bloggers we subscribe to. Oakley is a very smart guy. He is a Mac OS app developer, but
