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. This issue seems to be MacOS agnostic as it happens with Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave with Lightroom 6, 7 and right up to 8.4.1.

Here’s what happens:

So Adobe decided to skip the Camera Raw update name of 9.11 (with respect to the events of 9/11) and rename it to 9.12 and while they were at it, renamed Lightroom to version 12 as well. This also kept the product version naming consistent.

Also, we know that Adobe now has on the

screen-shot-2016-09-20-at-5-09-16-pmToday Adobe announced the release of Lightroom CC 6.7. It’s important to note before I go into the specs of this version, that it requires Mac OS 10.10 or greater and has compatibility fixes for Mac OS 10.12 (Sierra). I recommend updating to this version of Lightroom before updating to Sierra, just to play it safe. And because this version of Lightroom on Mac requires OS 10.10 or greater, take a look at your “About This Mac” to make sure your operating system is running at least 10.10.

Also note that Adobe Camera Raw got

How Long Does It Take to Learn to Shoot Like a Pro?

Book Cover for Outliers by Malcolm GladwellI read lots of blogs with technical and creative advice, some are excellent, many are misleading. But the real secret is volume, volume, volume. You’ve probably heard of the 10,000-hour rule made popular by Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Outliers. In order to be exceptional at something, anything, you’ll need to spend 10,000 hours practicing to get there. That’s about three and a half years of non-stop practice. Well, here’s

There are a lot of books out there for photography and Lightroom and I wanted to share with you Lightroom Guy’s 5 favorite books of 2015. Not that they’ve all been written in 2015. They aren’t all “new” in that sense, however they were new to me and valuable enough to share with my readers. So, in no particular order, here they are:

Be the Drink or Be the Bartender

Imagine you’re in a bar and order a strong mixed drink. Let’s say a Moscow Mule.

It’s the Bartender’s recipe. She cuts a slice of lime, squeezes the juice into a lovely Collins glass, grabs two or three ice cubes from the ice bucket, pulls down a bottle of Vodka from the top shelf, dribbles a few ounces into the glass, adds exotic ginger beer, mixes it with a bright red stirring stick and tosses a slice of lime on top.

Mmmmm. Now that’s a good Mule.
